    i don't really know how to explain it, i just don't feel like me. like i feel like there's me me and there's a me that is me but isn't actually me but that is the me that everyone sees.

    whenever i hear my name being mentioned in a conversation, i know it is me yet i feel so far removed from the person they're talking about that even though i know i did that or am that, i can't get myself to relate to it. like in the moment i am that person but later on when i'm looking back, it's as if I'm watching a video of someone else who is almost me but isn't.

    this i feel makes it hard to talk to my friends (especially new friends) because when they talk to me it doesn't feel like they're actually talking to me but this other person who is me. i just feel like i can't relate to anyone else, like my entire life and experience - especially since starting sixth form - it feels like someone else's life?

    it sounds so confusing and tbh i don't really know how to explain it.

    honestly I wouldn't do that, reading about them you just kind of idly agree and end up diagnosing yourself without question. at which point you think it into existence. I'm sure everyones done the same with medical conditions on the internet.

    OP its most likely just anxiety and changing times, I had the exact same thing going into yr 12. did u take any drugs or smoke a lot over summer out of interest?

    No, i'd never actually even drunk before starting sixth form haha. I have since smoked weed a couple times but that's it really.
