Dissociative question?

Examples of mild, common dissociation include daydreaming, highway hypnosis or “getting lost” in a book or movie, all of which involve “losing touch” with awareness of one’s immediate surroundings. I have all these with bipolar? How to prove to the therapist? Especially I have the highway hypnosis

There is no way to prove it. DID is gaining traction being tied to bi polar. bi polar used to be manic depressive. DID use to be multiple personality disorder. Sybil has long since been proven to be made up "sybil inc".... very few suffer from MPD less than 1%...some make their living catering to the DID ideals on the flip side others in the field refuse to give the diagnosis the time of day.


I hate people with Bipolar disorder.

I think DID is WONDERFUL !!

You shouldn’t have to they should value what

you say as being real to you, and not opinionise

unless specifically asked too!


Very best wishes

Everyone has highway hypnosis, it is sometimes about doing things in an automated way for long periods of time. It is not characteristic of an altered mental state. Every normal person has that.

You don't really seem to have dissociation at this moment in time, so I am not sure about that. Dissociation consists in a psychotic episode where you might experience a delusion. That can be a consequence of a traumatic stress, not necessarily of bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is really about having episodes of mania accompanied by episodes of extremely low mood, as well as self-harmful thoughts that are really trodden.

Highway hypnosis is not a form of dissociation. Highway hypnosis is when you begin to get drowsy from staring at the road too long. Quit self diagnosing and wanting to be diagnosed with other conditions. Dissociating itself is not a disorder since it's normal. And I doubt you have dissociative identity disorder

leave it to the specialists
get a second opinion, if they concur, you have your answer
