I just read my patient summary for my ED program and came across something strange. Along with the now usual borderline pd diagnosis, they dxd me with dissociative disorder-NOS. I read the symptoms of DD-NOS and it specifically says "derealization unaccompanied by depersonalization in adults". I remember telling them about my DR as well as DP experiences, and read that sometimes they put DD-NOS in place of DID before they have confirmed the diagnosis. One thing that sticks out in my mind that I remember telling them was that I was starting to have lost time/'browning' out, and also that the BP rage would come and I had out of body experiences with it and felt like a totally different person in those moments. Is this just some manifestation of the borderline? This could be b+w thinking causing me to jump to conclusions and such, but I just found this a bit odd and thought I'd see if anyone else has had a similar experience.
My name is Lux, and I am a 23-year-old force of nature. I make money as a bike messenger and freelance reporter. In my spare time, I like to write fiction, dabble in photography, and watch quality films. I have been in psychiatric treatment since I was 14. I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, anorexia, bulimia, alcohol addiction (recovered), and a dissociative disorder. I have been on nearly every psychotropic drug there is (quite literally). I have been in mental hospitals and eating disorders hospitals about six or seven times. I currently just got out of a six-week stay at an eating disorders facility. This time, I am truly very motivated to get better and working hard at it, although it is a struggle. http://www.crazyboards.org/forums/index.php?/gallery/image/6533-there-goes-my-soul-again/ http://www.crazyboards.org/forums/index.php?/gallery/image/6535-image/ http://www.crazyboards.org/forums/index.php?/gallery/image/6534-dolled-up/
