I took this quiz and got a 52, when I retook it I got a 54...but it defines anything above a 25 as severe depersonalization...

It seems pretty inaccurate and vague...too broad...

What do y'all think?

A wreck in progress.

What do they mean by this one - "I have felt that my emotions are not in my control."


Do they mean like you react completely randomly to things and it just doesn't make sense?

My score is 22. Mild depersonalization. Which sounds pretty much right to me. I am spacey a lot and I used to have flashes where I felt detached from my body and was just watching it as if it wasn't mine. What can therapists do to help this though? It seems like a tough thing to treat... I guess all MI issues are.

Interesting quiz, thanks for posting.

I got a 38. I experience depersonalization and derealization often, so I guess this could be accurate? I don't put too much into these online tests, though.

Social Anxiety Disorder, Trichotillomania, Bulimia (non-purging type)

I got a 37, but don't have a dissociative diagnosis, unless you count the BPD traits. Weird.

I scored a 36. This doesn't surprise me - although, I'm not familiar with the validity of such a quiz... Nor do I have such a dx - but I bet if I got real honest about doing the work to get to the core of my issues, I would. Can't rightly get those types of dx's when you don't give anyone the opportunity to dx you I suppose ;)

Saveyoursanity - I could be mistaken, but aren't dissociative symptoms heavily related to PTSD in some cases? Could explain your score (if the quiz is accurate that is).
official DX: GAD, depression, migraines... OH - and Rheumatoid Arthritis, just for fun.
Current RX - 20mg Lexapro, xanex xr as needed, klonapin as needed. for pain issues - flexaril, naprosyn as needed. for fatness - lol - adipex when I feel like it.
Also - working on finding a therapist & doing the work I know needs to be done that I have not successfully been able to do on my own in the past.
~~
Past RX - currently unmedicated - oh wait - that's not true. all as needed (which is more than I actually take them) xanex, klonapin, flexaril... plus a cupboard full of shit previously prescribed that I don't take anymore... most recently, I went rounds with Celexa, Cymbalta & then Pristiq (in that order...) With the last 2 causing me to be very obsessive & then causing the worst fucking withdrawl symptoms I've ever experienced.
~Update 4/11 ~ well, my depression got the best of me & I'm currently making the climb out of the despair pit with Lexapro. Seems to be working OK - I'm about half way back up. Not crying every day at least - so that's a relief.

I think you're right. I must've forgotten I had PTSD when I was writing that. (lol)

I liked the thingy they added to the score, I found it spot on, and good for me to remember, so I printed it here

With proper treatment, in time you will no longer find it necessary to disconnect from yourself or your feelings. Eventually, as you grow strong enough to reconnect with your memories, feelings and behaviors and begin to accept them as your own, your depersonalization will be reduced and you will become a more integrated and psychologically healthy person.

I got a 33, but I don't believe it though. I think many of the items that I answered often such as I feel as if my body is working but my mind is far away could describe ADD. I have only once or twice felt disconnected to my emotions. I just don't understand how I ended up with a 33.

Dx: Atypical MDD with anxiety, possible ADD, OCD (mostly recovered)
Rx: Citalopram (20 mg), Remeron (45 mg), Abilify (30 mg), Carbamazepine (800 mg), Lamotrigine (200 mg), Ritalin (20 mg AM, 10 mg PM)

39
Diagnosis: Bipolar type I rapid cycling, PTSD, OCD, intermittant psychosis, general insanity
Past diagnosis: MDD, bipolar type II, schizoaffective disorder (this might have been a more accurate description of what I have, but who knows), depression
Rx: Lamictal 300mg, topomax 100mg, clomipramine (spelling?) 225mg, lithium carbonate, idk the dose.
Past Rx: Symbyax (made me paranoid), Celexa (worthless), Abilify (blurry vision), Geodon (made me paranoid), Wellbutrin (made me rage), Pristiq (worthless), topomax (worthless), emsam (worthless), risperdal (worsened diabetes and made me gain 82lbs, discontinued 10/2011), remeron (worthless POS that made me binge eat at night, discontinued 6/2012)

...In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid...

Having felt your mind was elsewhere while you were working is depersonalization? Of feeling spacey? Or feeling your emotions are out of control? That site is set up to promote a book about depersonalization. So, of course it's going to be, um.... oversensitive.
Dx: Bipolar I, ADHD<br />
Rx: Seroquel, 800mg, Lamictal, 150mg, Effexor, 325mg, Wellbutrin, 450, Dexedrine ER, 60mg

36. and then i changed many of my answers from sometimes to never or once or twice and got 35.

i don't trust it. it should have lowered my score more than just 1 point.

eta: just changed ALL of my answers to ever or once or twice and got 26.

I got a 24. Mainly for symptoms that I consider part of bipolar.
I don't have PTSD. Occasional derealization but hardly ever now that I am so well medicated.
