      whenever i find myself dissociating i do grounding exercises first and just honestly stimulate anything that makes me feel real (squeezing my blanket, feeling my carpet, sucking on a lemon or ice, focusing on sounds, etc.) ik thats technically part of some grounding techniques but it helps me at least

      Therapy can be amazing. I get it if I’m under stimulated for too long, so taking an active part in changing my surroundings and routine helps a lot.

      I disassociate quite regularly, finding something grounding can help you not slip into it as much. (Ex. Weighted blanket, music, etc) I’ve also found that if I’m doing it a lot it can mean I need a break/alone time and pushing myself can often make me disassociate more.

      I agree with serene. That’s how I act as well. How long have you been dealing with it?

      When I start to notice that I'm dissociating, I stop what I'm doing and go take a short break. Usually, I dissociate when I'm doing school work and it lets me know I need to move my body or work on something else.

      i try to remember what i was doing before i started dissociating or think about something that makes me happy . it’s rare that i’m able to do that alone though . when i start doing around people they typically bring me back into reality

      I’ve dealt with it since I was about 5 years old. Seek out a therapist, because if you had a traumatic childhood, it may be a result of complex ptsd or ptsd. If you haven’t had any trauma, get tested for adhd. You may have inattentive adhd. (That’s what I have) I wax just recently diagnosed as an adult.
