I am losing time..disassative fugue
maniccycler posted:
Does anyone have trouble with losing time? I "came to" the other day and don't remember anything for the last 2 months. I guess I did okay on the day to day things. I just don't remember it. I am embarressed and my doctor says it is nothing. He said it is the minds way of protecting itself. I have done it all my life. People come up to me to talk
and I don't know them, but they know me. Weird.

Hi Maniccycler, you said your doctor says its nothing? What kind of doctor are you referring to? It definiatly sounds like a dissociative disorder to me, possibly DID, but not for me to diagnose. I would suggest seeing a psychiatrist for a complete evaluation, explaining everything you stated here and more. What you are experiencing is not "nothing" and is something that a trained therapist can work with you on.
