“...there is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply am not there.”
Has anyone felt like this or perhaps known someone like that? I've felt this way mostly my whole life, but the detachment just keeps growing greater, and I've never found a way to ground myself.

Anything that you would like to work towards?
In the mean time I would consider seeing someone about this.
I have had a similar experience as you're having now.
It feels like its not even worth it to get out of bed anymore, right?
Nothing feels real, or even matters, because in the end, nothing you do will really feel fulfilling.
I'd like to suggest something,
Get a puppy. I know it sounds weird, but think about it this way. To have a creature love you unconditionally, to entirely depend on you, will give your life some semblance of meaning, yes?
I personally felt like this before I made an effort at improving my life.
Remember when I was extremely cynical? That happened after I reached the end of the path that you're on.
