Ppl of course know what spacing out is like but I have bad dissociation and not just a few days, recently the past yr and a half its gotten worse turning into wks and months on n off and I can no longer get help. No more therapist for 2yrs now, I've cold turkeyd 2 n a half yrs ago from my prozac cuz it wasn't helping and I currently have no insurance so I cant get back into therapy atm but I'm considering a few apps a few of you guys have mentioned so that's rlly the only hope I have right now. I don't know how to cut myself from dissociating cuz it makes me still like I cannot move and cant distract myself partly cuz I cant move and body paralyzes almost. That's the best I can describe it and idk how to help myself and everyone I've talked to ab it have either not understood me and my mental illness. This feels like its killing me and I try and try to motivate myself constantly, I'm really fucking depressed and kinda sick of life at this point if I feel I'm not in control and I'm stuck in my head talking to voices. I only wanna do better for myself and have been trying to get jobs I've applied to but constantly budging out after fails of calling them back and dunkin donuts being mad dumb don't even get me started lol but it's been a wacky roller coaster so yeah I'm just hoping for the best. I've recently applied to 4 jobs the past month but haven't called any back in almost 3 wks now and me dissociating doesn't help cuz that's basically how long its been going on for like harsh on me. I feel crazy cuz my whole family doesn't understand and my man only understands me to and extent and I'm overwhelming w all my shit sprinkles of mental ill-mess. Virtual hugs and insight would help plz an thank you🥺💜

      Virtual hugs for you❤️ I have been in a similar situation when I was in high school. Dissociation and inability to tell reality from imagination/dreams. Hearing voices in my head. Losing time for days and weeks at a time. I had no idea wtf was going on. This shit lasted for another 5 years before I was diagnosed with DID. I would do your best to set anchoring activities into your day. A routine to follow. It can start simple. "Get up, brush teeth, get dressed, make breakfast. Then a couple hours for whatever you want, then maybe take a walk to get the blood flowing, then eat lunch, etc etc" through your day, every day. Make these things a habit. If you really struggle with time, write down the time you do everything in a notebook or journal. And journal a LOT if you feel like you can. Find ways to express yourself, whether this be through art, writing, hobbies, etc. Try not to be stationary for too long. If you feel like you're fading out, try to ground yourself as quickly as possible. Hold ice, pet an animal, jog in place, fidget with a toy, try to connect with yourself and your surroundings as much as possible. Hope that helps. I know what you're going through is tough, but you'll make it. <3
