New her

Hello I decided to come here as I need advice and support have depersonalisation disorder with dissociative episode and NEADs . Plus I'm a full time carer to my partner so I feel isolated.

I have used my nightmare and dream like someone else to write a series of book but mine were fictional. As they allowed me to express my feelings that I couldn't express verbally.

  • I am wondering if either you or your partner have a brain injury because what you describe is perhaps more mental health problems because you say you have depersonalisation disorder with dissosciate episodes. Sorry but I do not know what NEADs means? Headway is an organisation for those of us who have acquired a brain injury which could be by trauma, accident, haemorrhage, infection, anoxia etc.

  • NEADs is non elpispy attack dissociative seizure and as for depersonalisation disorders can be brought on due to brain injury or trama or alchol or drug addiction. Mine is possible brain damage or trama as a child which has a adult I'm affected by as I also survived domestic violence from my ex husband of emotional abuse.

    Hope this helps you understand why I joined headway.

  • Thank you for explaining. I am not aware of anyone else on here who is suffering similar but I am sure if there is then will respond. Perhaps you would find it helpful to ring the Headway helpline.
