Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
. Elliott, hi i would like to ask about dissoiation fugue i prefer chat please
Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
Because the moderator intervened it automatically took you off of the chat mode. I asked her to restore it to you as a chat, which she has done this morning.
I do not think that you have Dissociative Fugue, but rather some brief dissociative amnesia as part of your PTSD>
In Dissociative Fugue, the individual suddenly leaves home (or another activity) and goes on a trip. This often follows a severe stress.
The travel does have a purpose and is not just aimless wandering. There could be a feeling of confusion and disorientation. The person may even take a new identity or occupation. Often it is limited to travel.
There is a possibility that this could be characterised as Dissociative Fugue, now that I reconsider it, but it seems to be an offshoot of the PTSD.
I will save this chat and continue later when you are online.
