Anyone else wake up in the middle of the night and feel extreamly disassociated with your body?
>wake up and the first thought/feeling is - wow, I'm in this body again
Anyone else walk around with the thought all day that they are trapped inside their skin until the day the day you die?
This is what happens when I'm sober....I've felt an extreme level of energy and anxiety lately.
Well, this is actually normal when you realize you're just a puppeteer which is in control of the flesh puppet you call yourself. But don't think that you are "trapped" - you're just a driver that drives a bio-machine to do various stuff in this reality.
Fun exercise for anyone - lie on your back with your legs and arms straight absolutely motionless (except for breathing) for about 15-20 minutes. Ignore all itches and urges to adjust your position. After a while the feedback from your limb would cease and you will be in something similar to a sleep paralysis state. Then suddenly move your body - sit on the bed or just get up - You'll get the same feeling that OP's talking about.

Quick to judge, aren't you? Not that I care, but it's a bad habit to have. This exchange is over, have a nice day.
>quick to judge
well how do you interpret this picture?
am I wrong to sever all communal ties with him and fervently encourage others to do the same?
I woke up feeling that way a few months ago and since then I've been feeling that way increasingly in my normal life. Pain is muted. In fact, the world is muted. When I feel pain for example, I feel it and am aware that it hurts but it doesn't really affect me mentally because it doesn't feel like it's real. It's like I'm feeling that a pair of jeans is being ripped, rather than my flesh.
Real weird, man. I also have begun to zone out while thinking. I think about a subject and my body moves on autopilot, driving, walking, etc.
the only thing that pulls me out of my daze is interacting with other people
I moved out of the house around 20 after sleeping in the same room for 8+ years. I've been all over, different rooms and different feelings when waking up. I just visited my family for the holidays 4-5 years after not being in that room and it was pretty spoopy. Waking up was a trip, I was like HOLY FUCK I TRAVELLED BACK IN TIME IM YOUNG AGAIN oh wait fuck.
