I feel so disconnected somehow
I don’t quite feel like me
Do you ever not feel like you?

Yes Keesha,

Disconnected from most round about me, even my son just now. It's painful however can only batter through and wait for better days! One part of me thinks I'm an awful dad, the other is that I am still there for him and taking care of him by cooking dinners and playing games/watching the god awful YouTube videos he shows me.

Yes, sometimes I can’t even recognise myself in the mirror, my body doesn’t feel like my own.

I often don't feel like myself, think its partly caused by confusion and contradictions between things that I say and do....

And then theres another part where I feel totally distanced from my emotions & feelings, seems like I have no control over any of it whatsoever...

Sometimes I feel like I pretend to be someone that I'm not, and I really wish I didn't because I get a sense its not helpful to behave in such a way...
