I don't but I have less severe versions of it, called depresonalization and derealizatin, whenever I go through a depressive phase of my Bipolar Disorder. Are you seeking treatment for this. It is a very uncomfortable sensation but it can be treated.

I developed RSD about 4 years ago. I had to quit my job and stop doing a whole lot of usual things.I see a pain Dr. and a therapist for DID All of my past trauma events just flooded me. Many bad sexual things. It has been very hard

Nancy, being DID is hard. But I've learned (since my diagnosis) that although treatment is hard to endure, DID is one of the few mental illnesses that can be cured. I pray you are getting the treatment you need.

What is DID?


Posted by @kecsystem, Dec 17, 2011

Dissociative Identity Disorder. Usually caused by trauma/abuse; means person has suffered things that a person isn't built to endure and so the person dissociates to stay alive. Dissociation can mean spacing out, forgetting, and even coming up with new personalities so that there is part of you that is not affected by the abuse. It's a controversial diagnosis, some think it can't really happen. It includes the old category of Multiple Personality Disorder. That's the short version. If you have other questions, I'll answer to the best of my ability.
