Hello everyone. I found this site very informative.
About me: I have c-ptsd and reoccurring major depressive disorder. I took a very long questionnaire with my therapist and I scored high for DID. Mostly in the areas of depersonalization and derealization.
I can remember a time in 2008 when I was so stressed that I felt completely separate from my body. It was very scary. I don't know how I even managed daily activities.
I've been inpatient 3 times since then will h my last time being 9/17. The Dr upped my effexor and put me on prazosin. I feel foggy all the time now.
That's all for now

DP and DR are ubiquitous amongst those with DID. Additional to DP/DR, DID sufferers exhibit moderate-to-severe amnesia for biographical experience, identity confusion, and identity alteration. These latter three distinguish DID (a higher kind of dissociative disorder) from those with just DP/DR symptoms, who are then diagnosed with Depersonalization/Derealization Disorder. Many on this board evidence significant memory issues, which in conjunction with DP/DR would place them further along the spectrum of dissociative disorder, at a level known as "OSDD", or Other Specified Dissociative Disorder. (Previously called "DDNOS") OSDD is treated following the same guidelines for treatment as DID.
