How many developed DPD as a consequence of trauma. i.e. a close relative's death, a loved pet's death, physical abuse, etc.? What are some stories of trauma-induced DPD and what was the age when this happened? In my case, I was 12 and my father, grandma, and beloved dog all died within a year. I entered a world of chronic detachment from every little thing: from objects, to feelings, to actions. It feels as if I'm a robot and I do everything on impulse. I speak and do everything without thinking about it at all, it is as if I were programmed to do everything. Even the words and sentences I'm typing now are typed by some part of my mind I cannot recognize as being me. Anyways, I want to find a relationship between trauma-induced DPD and maybe the age of onset of the disorder. Later.
