Am I thinking about it too much?

Postby ArchCannon » Wed Jan 23, 2019 10:01 pm

I've been going through dissociative episodes, and lately it's been getting worse and more frequent.
Dissociation, as in moments of detachment from one's own body, senses and surrounding.

Today's afternoon, I went to do shopping. I didn't have a cart, so I was carrying most of the stuff in my hands, some of it in my pockets. When I got to the self-service checkout, an episode occurred. And so now I can't remember whether I paid for the stuff from my pockets or not. And it's driving me crazy!

What if I didn't? I don't want to be accosted by police
I'm scared out of my mind!

If you haven't been already caught, there are really low chances that the police will come knocking on your door asking about stuff from your pockets, relax.
You should contact someone from mental health services, however. It's clear you're in distress and it dissociation interferes with your daily life, take care of yourself.

Thank you for your response. What you say makes sense, looks like I don't have to worry about legal trouble.

Yeah, I guess I should take care of my health more. I hope your dissociation problems get better, too. As I've seen you're dealing with a similar problem.
