Thank you to BetterHelp for sponsoring this video! Dissociation, what is it, how do deal it? Mental Heath Videos with Kati Morton Dissociation is a term in psychology describing a wide array of experiences from mild detachment from immediate surroundings to more severe detachment from physical and emotional experience. It is commonly displayed on a continuum. The major characteristic of all dissociative phenomena involves a detachment from reality -- rather than a loss of reality as in psychosis. In mild cases, dissociation can be regarded as a coping mechanism or defense mechanisms in seeking to master, minimize or tolerate stress -- including boredom or conflict. At the nonpathological end of the continuum, dissociation describes common events such as daydreaming while driving a vehicle. Further along the continuum are non-pathological altered states of consciousness. More pathological dissociation involves dissociative disorders, including dissociative fugue and depersonalization disorder with or without alterations in personal identity or sense of self. These alterations can include: a sense that self or the world is unreal (depersonalization and derealization); a loss of memory (amnesia); forgetting identity or assuming a new self (fugue); and fragmentation of identity or self into separate streams of consciousness (dissociative identity disorder, formerly termed multiple personality disorder) and complex post-traumatic stress disorder. Dissociative disorders are sometimes triggered by trauma, but may be preceded only by stress, psychoactive substances, or no identifiable trigger at all. The ICD-10 classifies conversion disorder as a dissociative disorder. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders groups all dissociative disorders into a single category. Although some dissociative disruptions involve amnesia, other dissociative events do not. Dissociative disorders are typically experienced as startling, autonomous intrusions into the person's usual ways of responding or functioning. Due to their unexpected and largely inexplicable nature, they tend to be quite unsettling.

Comments

merjam abdulhadi: is it normal to walk back and forth while thinking about your fantasy or imagine yourself being somewhere else doning something else

Karter Grace: this helped me a lot thanks

Jeanette Ann: That exercise reminds me of a body scan meditation it is grounding of find it helps.

ɮօʊռċɛ օʄʄ: depersonalization = mentally dead inside & never in touch with reality.
& when realized, a mental breakdown occurs.


'tis easier to keep being detached from the cancerous cultish hell I'm surrounded with & just get distracted from it by watching movies, tv shows, YouTube, porn & entertainment.


Or I could just commit suicide & get over with it.

John R: I had this before. Such a scary feeling. But anyone going through this just remember with a little hard work and patience it all gets better

Elle Niamholt: I dissociate during times I have high levels of anxiety. For a long time I didn't know what was happening which would cause me to have panic attacks.
Now I understand what dissociation is I can prevent myself overthinking myself into a panic.
I have found breathing exercises help me the most. I am very aware of when I start to feel this way; recently I noticed my breathing becomes very shallow which may contribute to the dizziness and tingling in my limbs.
Once I have taken a few deep breaths I feel I begin to regain control over my body and thoughts.

Pedro Canales: I feel disconnected from reality because I just dropped 2 tabs of acid lmao and niggas faces is melting bruh

Abi Nicole: This video was very helpful Im glad you said that its normal for the mind to do this, all last year I was in this state and all I can remember is thinking I was going crazy bc phsycosis runs in my family. Thank you so much though!!

Abi Nicole: What helps me is holding my twins hand or hugging her/someone for a long amount of time. Ill also grab on my skin roughly or pinch myself. The ice trick seems very useful as well too.

Koli Marie: I was in DBT for a few months and our group therapist gave us a tip of mindful eating, and suggested when dissociations happen to let a small piece of chocolate melt on your tongue, and let the taste bring you or keep you present.

weirdoneontheblock: Plus, not all CBT therapists are good therapists. Just like how anyone can be horrible at their job. I recently used to have a therapist who, when ever I started to mention something was going on she'd dismiss it by saying "you're an adult so you should be able to handle it". The fuck?

Ashley Burt: while speaking to people or speaking in public this is the most annoying thing.. especially with ADD 😂 not only have i become nervous, but now i lost my train of thought and oh ive floated out of my body for a second and suddenly im listening to myself speak..

its the same feeling when you're on a phone that is echoing feedback after everything thing you say except you cant just say.. oh just hold on ill call you back the phone is echoing.

the breathing deeply helps. it happens mostly when im making eye contact (which avoid for this reason), and talking fast without taking a breath. its like getting hypoxic and having a absence seizure.

My friends in high school used to crack up at me when i suddenly looked around like i had been dreaming thinking.. im really in a classroom? whoa how did i even get here.. then I'd stop talking and just say "ok i just forgot where i even am". my best friend would always chuckle and tell me how one of her friends from here home town did that too and i felt better lol but around people you dont know its so embarrassing

Sepia Smith: I have them every once in a while, usually triggered by my anxiety and/or depression. I just describe it as feeling super spaced out and I have a really slow reaction time and it's not fun, especially as I've gotten better in therapy so I usually get really frustrating when it happens haha

A Unicorn: I dissociate because it calms me down. but it is also uncontrollable. If I am overwhelmed I automatically start dissocating because if I don't I will usually start to self harm. When I "dissociate" (it is kind of different for me) for me most of my senses disappear or at least lesson (I usually do it from sensory or emotional overwhelm). I feel ok, alive and normal in my world. I feel more human then I ever will in the "real world" (btw I probably have autism ADHD and a lot more). Dissosocistion has saved me, f on myself (I was pretty much about to go grab a knife and kill myself and then I dissociated and I became good enough to keep going).it is also kind of more like maladaptive daydreaming but I use it like dissociation.

Bev Choy: but is it bad to use disassociation in certain situations? Such as being prepped for surgery and you can't be sedated... asking for a friend ;)

Karin Maaka: I dissociate while driving all the time :/

Claudia Fortes: I've always dissociated in different ways throughout my life but just realized the way I would feel when I saw something that triggered eating disorder thoughts was another way in which I dissociated. I would suddenly get really cold and then start shivering uncontrollably and then I would just go numb and not feel anything and not need food...idk it's weird.

Quinten Cambridge: Who else got this shit from weed? It hit me for months after I quit but eventually went away, you just have to remember that dissociation is a result of anxiety and thinking about the disassociation causes anxiety.

Love Is Better: Are Repressed memories and Dissociation both a part of the same disorder? ..Because I've had both happen in my mind..several times.

Shalev Basya: I use essential oils as a grounding technique. There really strong and I can just put one drop right under my nose or on my temples and the smell lasts for a good amount of time.
