My wife had a baby about 8 days ago and since then I have been completely cut off from reality. I literally can't remember who I was or what I stand for. I am forgetting everything that I do and say and am completely detached. Why did this happen and how do I fix it? I have had dissociation disorder for about 5 years now and my wife has seen me at my worst from completely bed ridden where I can't move out of bed for weeks to being completely fine and getting things taken care of traveling, working hard, finishing school. I am back at the bed ridden stage. Why this happen. I should be so happy about the baby but for some reason I mentally completely shut down.
