For some people there's a medical or drug trigger, but even then if you ask people to tell you about their lives it becomes less of a mystery. Often they have been placed under a lot of pressure or stress, particularly from an impressionable age, with a sense of anxiety about safety or rejection. This may have been reinforced with intimidation and negative messages about who they are. This all leads to self-questioning, self-checking and mental exhaustion, and the effects can become very strange, much like sleep deprivation.
