Are you familiar with the mysteries of dissociation?
Recent research suggests that up to 10-11% of people experience dissociative disorders at some point.
It's a profound feeling of detachment, where individuals can become disconnected from memories, emotions, or even their identities.
Imagine a grieving individual becoming numb to focus on funeral arrangements, or someone so disconnected they can't recognize their own reflection.
While one theory links these disorders to trauma, another suggests they're mere delusions. Yet, data supports the trauma theory more.
Many with dissociative disorders go undiagnosed due to skepticism, lack of awareness, and subtle symptoms.
Specialized psychotherapy, addressing both psychological and physiological impacts of trauma, offers hope.
If you suspect someone might be dealing with dissociative symptoms, consult a trauma and dissociation expert. The first step is always understanding.
