Hi

This is only my third post on the forum

I'm beginning to explore dissociative states with my psychologist (Masters qualified Trauma specialist)

It is "At a pace which is right and safe for (Patient)" because I have a history of trauma involving psychologists. So I dissociate at the drop of a hat in therapy

Mine takes a few forms

Flashbacks are dissociative
"Flashforwards" or "Flashbacks to things which haven't happened yet" are a dissociative state as yet to be titled
"Other people's flashbacks" are too
The Freeze trauma response is dissociative
Not often. But sometimes people tell me that I have hurt people, caused serious injury. And I am honest when I say that i have no idea what they are talking about. Then years later I get flashbacks of these amnesic events

My team can't completely agree on my full diagnosis. But something along the lines of schizoaffective disorder, OCD, CPTSD, and possibly either autism or personality pathology

I am in my 40s

Sorry to vent. I don't know what this is meant to achieve. My psychiatrist says that my writings are OCD Compulsions

Hi. Flashforwards is new to me. Do they come true? It's crazy how much of your post I can relate to. To the point it kinda gives me a little fear that maybe one of my hidden alters is you lol.

I have: Flashbacks. Serious therapist trauma. Sometimes people say bad things to me as if I've done something bad to them, but I have no memory of it. My therapists & psychiatrists can't completely agree with most of my diagnosis. Some of the diagnoses are: DID, schizoaffective disorder, BPD, CPTSD, ASD, and some more.

I don't have a proper term for flashforwards. And there is debate among my team on what they are. Theories include OCD intrusive thoughts, hallucinations, and just touching on dissociative intrusions with therapist

Similar to a flashback that hasn't happened. And I play both roles as victim and abuser. I live both as if they are happening
