Why can’t I remember my dad?

I'm sorry if I am doing this wrong. I am new here.

I am 16, and my parents are divorced. I have a good relationship with both of them.

My mom and siblings say that my dad was very very abusive was I was young but I can't remember. I have lots of memories where he would beat us, but I can't see him in those memories. It is so freaky. It is like my ...

Ever gone into a trance after a trauma?

Hi there,

I was just wondering whether anyone else has any experience of going into a trance after a trauma.

There were times when I was younger where I would have 'absences' where I would trance out with my eyes open. People would not be able to get me to come to either by talking to me, making noises or waving their hands in front of my face.

I've been riding out 'reclaiming' memories of ...

Struggling to come to terms with the loss


I don't know if anyone will answer on here or not but it's worth a try as I see lots of posts are older now.

Really struggle at times to come to terms with the amnesia I suffered. My life, maybe like others on here, was built upon my ability to understand/compute/analyse/memorize, and when that was taken so was my life in a big way. I've regained some of my memory now thankfully, but ...

Severe PTSD with Dissociative Amnesia

So, I asked my therapist for a concise diagnosis today, and she said that I have Severe PTSD with Dissociative Amnesia. I also took the DES and scored 46.8, and people with DID score in the 40s. I've no idea what to think about these mixed messages. Oh well, I guess I'll just concentrate on healing from now on.

What's making this incredibly important right now and today is that money has gone missing and at least I believe that it was who he becomes in times of stress ...

Dissociative disorder and psychedelics

Has anyone with moderate - extreme dissociate disorder tried any psychedelics?

I recently resorted to LSD in hopes of helping me with mental guidance such as who i am and why i live the way i do mentally and such. I was hoping for a mind ###$ or ego death that would help guide me.
I took a heavy dose over 350 mics and i didnt even trip, maybe another part of my brain experienced ...
