Amnesia types

Postby Amanda87 » Thu Jan 25, 2018 2:14 pm

Hello. I used to lose a lot of time, but after years of therapy I now remember switches like it happened weeks ago, when actually it was seconds. Is this still considered amnesia? Thank you all so much!

If you remember something that happened seconds ago, even if it fels like weeks ago, I don't think it's amnesia? I mean, if there's no time that you feel you never remembered it?

There's stuff that happens where I'm not really coconsious but sort of half there? And to me it's like a dream. Maybe I don't remember all the details but I remember bits and peices and it's sort of fuzzy and dreamlike.

I don't know call it amnesia because I remember sort of the 'big picture' of it? If I don't remember anything at all, I call that amnesia.

Or maybe I'm wrong. But I wouldn't call it amnesia.

What do you call it? Maybe it's more important what it means to you?

Thank you for your answer :) yes, I think ot means that the barriers between parts are lesser than before I learned about my parts. Time can also act strange. Like it is faster or slower. It is nice to hear that other people experience similar things.

We definitely have issues with time! Like when the other Violet is in front and I'm coconsious, or the other way around, the one who's sort of half inside has a different timescale.

Like other Violet's on a phone call and I'm coconsious, I might think it was a 10 minute call, then later I find out she was talking for an hour! She's said the same thing so I know she gets the wierd time difference too.

Yea it is amnesia sounds like it. I'd say the answer to that is actually who is the teacher with the answer key. Is it the therapist or one of the alters?
