Odd question.. does anyone have really visceral dissociative episodes that they kind of get stuck on? Recently, the dissociation has been really getting to me, and border on what feels like hallucination, but almost more in the form of intrusive thoughts/reality that I cannot get to go away. It's much better than it was before I started medication, but I am also grieving the loss of some things in my life, which I think might be exacerbating the issue.

        @Dusker My god you have no idea how validating that is to read. For me, I become so detached that It's hard for me to hold space in the real world, because it feels so much like I am somewhere else on the inside. I had a friend describe it almost as dual processing, which feels very representative of the experience itself. Lately, I've been having a harder time staying engaged with the real world, and have increasingly found myself kind of shutting in. The news has been hard for me to digest recently, so I lay on the floor a lot. I found the ground is firm, and I can kind of anchor myself through that when it's getting really hard.
