Dr Vikas : OK, see, there is term know as Depersonalization which is characterized by alteration in the perception of the self. Patients may feel that they are mechanical, in a dream, or detached from their bodies although patients realize the unreality of the symptoms.
Dr Vikas : are you experiencing the same.
Customer: no
Customer: it is dissoition
Customer: it is dissoiation identity
Customer: as 4 drs said
Dr Vikas : let me explain further.
Customer: and am sure of it
Dr Vikas : In depersonalization, parts of the body or the entire physical ebing may seem foreign, as may mental operations like thinking and accustomed behavior. Sometimes patients may feel that that the point of consciousness is outside their bodies.
Dr Vikas : you are sure that this is not happening to you.
Customer: yes
Customer: it is dissoiation

Customer: DID

Customer: it is not dissoiated amnesia
Customer: it is dissoiated identity disorder
Dr Vikas : Dissociated identity disorder is diagnosed when a patient is having two or more distinct personalities, each of which determine behavior and attitude during any period in which it is dominant.

Customer: it is very effective
Dr Vikas : yes, Rivotril can be very useful in your current symptom

Dr Vikas : it is possible in dissociative amnesia.
Dr Vikas : let me complete please
Customer: and confused
Customer: and i need to understand
Customer: because i am very scared
Customer: sorry
Dr Vikas : The key symptom of dissociative amnesia it the patients inability to recall information, usually traumatic or stressful.
Dr Vikas : however person retain the capacity to learn new information.
Dr Vikas : the onset of amnesia is almost abrupt and patients are usually aware that they have lost their memories. Some patients get upset by their memory loss.
Dr Vikas : the memory loss can be of several type, the most common type is localized memory loss that is the loss of memory for the event of a short time that is few hours to few days.
Dr Vikas : so you are concerned about this memory loss or it is something else?
Customer: yes
Dr Vikas : ?
Customer: i am looking for these memmory
Customer: i cant get it
Dr Vikas : you need not to worry about it as I mentioned earlier.
Customer: but i feel the place is not real
Customer: this is what make me nerovus
Customer: and scared
Dr Vikas : Hypnosis can be helpful in this and so can be medicines like Rivotril which can help in recovering the lost memory.
Customer: because there is a part inside me want to go out
Customer: but cant
Dr Vikas : That is probably Derealization which will also respond to Benzodiazepine
Dr Vikas : like Rivotril
Dr Vikas : just don't panic
Customer: but
Customer: i feel
Customer: this is jordan
Customer: by brain
Customer: is saying that
Customer: so he feel better

Customer: because it is not logicily that
Customer: i cant go and come back
Customer: it is not a agme
Customer: game!

Customer: no
Customer: you said
Customer: that about dissoiated amnesia
Customer: what about did
Customer: ?
Dr Vikas : this is not DID
Customer: which i think it is did
Customer: because my theripest in canada
Customer: says that
Customer: she is very good
Dr Vikas : OK, in that case, you just go through the links I gave above to have a better understanding of your problem.
Dr Vikas : a patient may have multiple diagnosis
Customer: i know it
Customer: but i need to know
Customer: what will happend
Dr Vikas : I guess, I should opt out from this question and let other expert try to help you.
Customer: why
Customer: you are very good!!
Dr Vikas : thanks
Dr Vikas : but I guess we are not on the same page. I don't think that the symptoms you are mentioning will come under DID
Customer: and my dr told me i have dissoiated fugue
Dr Vikas : You are insisting on DI
Dr Vikas : DID
Customer: yes
Customer: because my dr said so
Dr Vikas : :)
