I have a question for yall - Since I'm new to this whole BP world, have been diagnosed with cyclothymic (milder form of BPI) I'm not real sure what to expect this is what I've been feeling
Like I can drive down the road, and then like "wake up" and realize I'm driving - I function pretty good I guess when this happens, I also am getting bad short term memory loss - like can't remember some things from days ago - don't know if it's that, or just can't remember - i do know, that like when I was driving and I "woke" all I remembered was getting in my car, starting to drive, then, BOOM I realized where I was, and where I was going, but couldn't tell you which way I had went to get to where I was at that point. It scared me at first - I talked to my Friend Carrie who is DID and she said it may be depersonalization.. that I should talk to someone about it if it keeps happening - I'm pretty sure it only happens when I'm to the point of breaking when I'm so stressed out, I have either cycled to being angry or hypomanic, doesn't seem to happen when I'm down..
Anyway, was just wondering if any of you had the same or similar experiences..
the only meds I'm on is Xanax .25mg as needed, and they just calm me down for panic disorder, they don't make me feel like I'm in a fog or a zombie or anything like that..
Anyway, peace to you all -
Thanks for any comments
