Dissociative Amnesia

Postby red » Thu Jun 14, 2018 6:03 pm

Hi. I've suffered with Dissociative Amnesia brought on by PTSD after the death of my husband, 7 years ago. I am pretty much at the end of my tether because it has robbed me of so much of my life. I live in Wales and mental health provision is sparse. My GP hasn't helped and although I've self-referred to my local MIND, they aren't taking anyone on until July!! Don't know where else to turn. Does anyone have any experience with this and any idea about organisations that can help? Thanks.

Hi red,


Unfortunately, I don't know much about this, but someone else should come along with some insight soon! You're not being ignored, it's just that a lot of people here are fighting their own battles and so may not respond straight away!x

Much love <3

Hi I experience dissociative amnesia too , I've learned a lot thought my therapist and community mental health team that specialise in personality disorder & ptsd , I dissociate totally when I'm experiencing a similar thought process or a trigger to my past experiences , when this happens for me I feel totally out of control and I'm panicking so bad and my thoughts are going so quick and then I can't remember I regain my memory after that from where I am how I feel what's going on around me and people are telling me what's gone on or what happened etc , sorry if this is not what you are experiencing just thought if it is my post may help you
