...Recently within the past 1 1/2 years I've had a full workup done, because I reported diziness ad stuff to my doc. EEG, EKG, blood work, everything, I didn't tell him when I felt dreamy, I just told him like I'd get weak and dizzy and faint. So he did all those tests, then came back and said u are hypoglycemic. But that was a different feeling. I'll go for a couple days just like, not panicing, but feeling like I'm in a dream, and everything wierd, everything more something, and numb.
I talked to my mom about it. She remembers me little, asking about deja' vu alot, and asking her if I was dreaming repeatedly, but she just thouoght it was my imagination. My mom said when I was born, for a few years things were bad. Like dad yelling thretening to kill hisself more than once, pushing mom, screaming, emotional abuse, ect. I already have a psyciatrist for depression and cutting.

My questions this. A) Could that trigger a kid to start becoming dp/d
B) How can I approach my psych to ask him about it?

Sorry bout the long post. Thanx

A threatening father could cause you to become wrapped in a fantasy world in which there is no anger and pain. If your brain was in this state for long enough, it could lead to DP/DR symptoms. I got DP from the same sort of situation.

You should just talk to your psych about it straight out. Are you on meds?

A)F*#k yes! This can cause it and exactly how mine started.
B) Why don't you just say what you said in this post? He should be able to help particully if he is helping with what you experience now.

Yeah, I'm on Seroquel and an anti-depressant, I forgot the name. Not prozac, L something.

I do not remember anything before I was 6. And after that only like 2 family memories. The other few memories are from school. I have like 10 or less memories between when I was 6-13. I'm 18 now. Did you have any memory lapses like that? I have a couple bad memories of my parents, but it's like I blocked everything else out. My dad is still emotionally abusive through the years. That's been a trip and 1/2.
