currently i am not diagnosed with anything nor can i get any evaluations due to quarantine, but me and my therapist have been talking about the possibility of me being on the spectrum. if you are on the spectrum and also experience dpdr, do you feel like the symptoms of autism makes the dpdr worse?

Hey Cosmiclife, I am currently looking into the topic of autism myself, and I have learned that dissociation is a relatively common coping strategy in dealing with sensory overload in people on the spectrum. Still, it is also common in PTSD, generalized anxiety disorder, and some other conditions.

From my experience with dissociation, it often adds up to feeling depersonalized.
Best,
A.
