How to manage anxiety
Anxiety can feel overwhelming, but there are some simple steps you can ...
Dissociation exists on a spectrum. Almost everyone experiences low-level dissociation some of the time. In fact, day dreaming is an example of typical and low-level dissociation.
Here are some types of dissociation:
Derealisation: feeling as though the world around you isn’t real. This might mean feeling as though you are watching a movie, or like everyone seems 2D or fake.
Depersonalisation: an altered sense of your thoughts, behaviours, body or sense of self. For example, this can include feeling numb or like you are ‘watching from outside yourself’.
Memory loss: when you dissociate, it’s hard to form memories or pay attention to things happening around you, which might make it hard to remember things later on. Amnesia (lost memories) are the most severe form of this.
Changes in sense of identity: you might experience changes in your personality, feel like you are ‘two different people’ at once or like you have multiple personalities. Some people are aware of these changes, but some aren’t.
