I wonder what causes it. Sometimes it just comes out of nowhere. Like on a normal day, just out for a walk or going shopping, and there it is suddenly, that strange sense that it all feels not quite real somehow. Like it's all a dream or something. Some people recommend "grounding" yourself using the senses to focus on things that are around you. Sometimes it helps just to talk, even a few words with anybody, like a store worker. Some of my dissociation I guess comes from lots of alone time, being solitary and lost in thoughts so much of the time.

It’s happening nearly every morning and during that time I’m around people at work and talking to them but I still feel ‘zoned out’ for want of a better word. I want to know how to snap out of it, I hate it.
