I always thought that was called an out of body experience but i got that a lot when i was younger but it hasn't happened it a long time, BUT today when i was riding the bus i didn't really focus on where i was until i got off it felt so incredibly routine, I didn't even think about getting a transfer or switching buses i felt like a robot.

Also to threadstarter: I have a question about how the feeling is to see if we are experiencing the same thing, for instance when you are having DD does it feel like when you move your hands that your not really controlling them but they are moving, same thing with walking you know your moving its just hard to relate what is making you move and stuff like that is that how you feel?

Shredder, that's what happening to me. Almost all the time, I feel like I'm not there and I don't know what the **** is going on. People at school think I'm a druggie. Oh well...

Do you ever get it, where you just blank your mind for a few minutes, and then realise that you've been day dreaming, and then it hit's you that what you see is real, and this is your life being lived. I can't explain it, it's wierd. It's a spooky feeling, not as good as going over a fast bump in a car though.

Don't worry about it as long as it's not causing significant distress in your life. For something to be characterized as a disorder, it MUST be impairing your life so much that you can't go about things as you normally would.

If this is how things are, by all means see a psychologist. But chances are that you're absolutely fine.

no no, all these things happened when i was younger and they haven't happened in at least 5 years so it's not a disorder

That's really odd. I don't think anything that strange has happened to me, although sometimes I zone out so badly I could pass through a crowd and not notice anyone around me. There's been times when my friends would pass by me and try to get my attention and I wouldn't notice.

The two feelings are auctually quite similar if you think about it. From the pit of the stomach or something.
