I don't remember the weekend at all... I need to do some research about what happened between Saturday and this morning... I've been losing a lot of time lately and the IOP therapist is really noticing.

I'm a bit confused here, but having just arrived here and believing that this might be where I belong, I thought I'd better say hi. But how can I know? If I don't understand?

Hi everyone! I just joined today and am hoping having a support group will help me better understand and navigate my depression and dissociation. I'm ready to feel like a person again.
I'm currently taking Remeron in the evenings and Wellbutrin in the mornings for my depression but am plagued by the dissociation. Without going into too many details, almost three years ago, I experienced several traumatic events within seven months of each other including a near death experience, major hospitalization, and death of my mother. Soon after my mother's burial is when the dissociation started.
I constantly feel as if I'm in a dream. I know I'm not but it's like I'm looking at the world through a heavy fog. I'm often forgetful, lack concentration, and get disoriented.
My psychiatrist said I'm having a cognitive response to the trauma I've experienced. It has improved some over the past two years but it still persists.
Can anyone offer inspiration, advice, or self-care tips that have helped them overcome? Thank you!

Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm the same way when making some phone calls that aren't a big deal to others. For a little while, even checking emails gave me anxiety. Even though I can't make the anxiety go away, I can tell you that you're not alone. Hang in there.

suffering...speechless...crying...I try to be here, but I keep being pulled back into past moments, to re-live the pain again and again and again...
someone I care a lot about stopped showing up online days ago...I cannot stop thinking something awful has happened to them...it is a massive trigger, all coping mechanisms are back on, and I feel as if I am finally losing my mind for good...

Thank you for being there...
It is a friend on a self-help chat.

But, all we can do for another person who suffers is be there when we can and offer a kind word, as you just did. I think I have a hard time accepting that I cannot do anything else for the people I grew attached to and care a lot about.

I can only hope that all of us who struggle can find strength within not to let go when it becomes tough, and to reach out when we feel we cannot cope on our own...

it is far too early on a sunday morning to say " I have nothing to do for the rest of the day", but I don't

may listen to part 2 of the mythology story I've been listening to

it's about how the polynesian demigod maui snaired the sun

I mean it may only be 45 minits out my day, but it's something..

Possible trigger:
is triggering some pretty intense flashbacks. Have been doing lots and lots and lots of grounding.
