Why can’t I remember
When I developed PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) and dissociative disorder, I only ever remember feeling fear and confusion. Now I dissociate when under stress or during periods of depression, sometimes for a few hours, sometimes for a day or two. When I am coming back to the present, I struggle to get my mind back in working order and I go through various stages.
