Harold's__Maude Posted July 16, 2011 Share Posted July 16, 2011 ....becaus I am oh, so formal, ya know I'm 'Ren...Karen...and a few others. DDNOS! (Dissociative Disorder Not Otherwise Specified that is). I'm fairly comfortable with this, as I'd been getting that feeling for a long time that something was "up" or "different" with me, but I always attributed it to depression...finbally, one day for various reasons, something clicked and I asked my former MFCC to see me and discuss what I had begun suspecting. She gave me the name of a WONDERFUL therapist and in doing so, I discovered that this stuff that was happening, these "freak outs" (where I'd not seem like "me" at all, to myself and to others that saw it), actually have a name - which meant I could get the right therpy for me. Whew! BIG difference - it was a relief! The hardest part is dealing with my husband - I still feel very inroverted about it all with him. Actually, even harder is my mom...which I won't go into now (not here, not now, lol - and older SNL reference!). Oh, I have 5 kids too - and that's a bit hard. I'm hoping to find some form of kindred spirits here...I have been told that there is a lot of good stuff here, and a lot of good people (and humor! Yay for humor!) and since I'm in a state of searching-learning-reading-making support happen, I decided to join up (a person on another board I frequent has this place listed as a resource). So hello to all...and "See" you soon! Ren Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
