Currently going through this. For myself, it's like a horrific combination of severe anxiety/hyperawareness, all shrouded by DPDR and emotional numbness. So I can't even experience the pain enough to process it if that makes sense.

Then I just feel like staring at the wall because I can't feel anything, and frankly, it's worse than all the emotional pain in the world.
I was there myself. Weirdly not being able to process pain might have helped but the emotional numbness feels like your soul is dying. It is the worst symptom along with DPDR and depression. I was to the numbness protects us but honestly I could do without it.
