  • - [Amanda] Hey, Psych2Goers,

  • do you feel distant from your emotions, thoughts,

  • surroundings, and memories?

  • This is part of something called dissociation.

  • Dissociation is a defense mechanism

  • where you unconsciously push away

  • conflicting or threatening emotions

  • and compartmentalize feelings

  • so that you don't have to deal with them.

  • Within the umbrella of dissociative symptoms,

  • there are two that help categorize the experience,

  • detachment dissociation

  • and compartmentalization dissociation.

  • Detachment dissociation refers to feeling like

  • you have been taken out of your body.

  • Compartmentalization dissociation refers to when

  • your mind pushes aside distressing moments or experiences,

  • this usually results in memory loss.

  • With that said, here are five signs

  • you may be experiencing dissociation.

  • Number one, memory loss.

  • Memory loss is a common symptom of dissociation.

  • You may find yourself at work or school,

  • but unable to remember how you got there.

  • Memory loss is one of the quickest symptoms to identify

  • because it's obvious.

  • The main reason memory loss

  • goes hand in hand with dissociation

  • is because your brain cannot handle

  • whatever is going on,

  • so it switches to autopilot.

  • Dissociation pulls you outside of your body,

  • hence it's difficult for you to remember

  • what happens around you if you're not there.

  • But these moments of dissociation don't always occur

  • when we are frightened or distressed,

  • they could sometimes happen while you're doing something.

  • Number two, derealization.

  • Derealization is another symptom of dissociation,

  • it sometimes feels like a dream

  • where things are colorless, dull, or blurry.

  • Derealization is distressing

  • and can cause anxiety,

  • but it's common for those with anxiety, depression,

  • and other mental illnesses.

  • However, derealization differs

  • from other psychotic disorder symptoms

  • in the sense that there is a degree of awareness,

  • you are aware of reality

  • and the feeling that distances you from it.

  • Number three, feeling lightheaded.

  • There are many reasons why you may feel lightheaded,

  • but in the context of mental health,

  • dissociation can be a cause.

  • When lightheadedness is paired

  • with another one of the symptoms mentioned above,

  • then the cause is most likely dissociation.

  • The vestibular system is a sensory system

  • responsible for spacial awareness

  • and sense of balance,

  • however, when you dissociate,

  • you are not aware of your surroundings.

  • When you come to

  • the sudden realization of your surroundings,

  • there's almost a vestibular simulation

  • and makes you lightheaded.

  • Number four, not feeling pain.

  • Another sign of dissociation is not feeling pain.

  • There is research suggesting

  • that dissociation not only minimizes painful memories,

  • but also the physical pain attached to them.

  • However, the connection between dissociation and pain

  • is not solely related to trauma.

  • People who experience chronic pain

  • can also experience dissociation.

  • For some who experience dissociation

  • as a result of a mental health condition,

  • the feeling of not feeling in your body

  • can sometimes lead you to self injure.

  • Although it makes sense to do something

  • to bring you back into your body,

  • self injuring is not the best option.

  • And number five, a loss of self identity.

  • Another aspect of dissociation is depersonalization,

  • it's similar to derealization in the sense

  • that you feel like you are watching yourself.

  • However, depersonalization makes you feel distant

  • from your mental process,

  • you feel that you are an observer of your own life.

  • Depersonalization can occur with other symptoms

  • on this list,

  • it can be a very scary feeling,

  • like you don't have any control of your body.

  • Some clinicians believe that extreme stress or trauma

  • can produce depersonalization.

  • So, do you relate to any of these signs?

  • Dissociation can be frightening

  • and, in some cases, intrusive.

  • It's not like a physical illness

  • where a diagnosis and treatment

  • are administered via exams,

  • but there is treatment,

  • among them being psychotherapy, medication,

  • family therapy, and clinical hypnosis.

  • If you experience any of these symptoms,

  • please reach out to

  • a medical health professional for treatment.

  • Please like and share this with friends

  • that might find some good advice in the video as well.
