I was looking up Dissociative Disorders, and came upon DID NOS (Not otherwise specified). I am curious as to whether I could have it.
I am in my own head A LOT. I make up stories and stay there often because I feel it's safer and more exciting than real life.
One of the symptoms said: "Derealization unaccompanied by depersonalization in adults". I've had derealization for quite a while, never depersonalization.
I recently had an "attack" where I had derealization, then was "brought back" to reality, and I was confused as to who was talking to me sometimes, and where I was. It was really scary. During the attack I felt like I couldn't talk. I physically could have...but my mind didn't let me.
I have no doctor or therapist to speak to...I'm on a 6-7 month waiting list for a therapist.
I am 18 years old and diagnosed with OCD. I also have temporal lope epilepsy, if that means anything. I'm just wondering if it's possible, thank you!
