Hi. Can any body help me, what is dissasociative Disorder, does this mean that symptoms are all made up and all in the imagination? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks
Hi new user,
You can find all the info and help you need at http://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/types-of-mental-health-problems/dissociative-disorders/#.U5nVE441jmx.
Hope this helps.
I don’t know a great deal about it, but it does NOT mean symptoms are “made up”. The symptoms will be real, but the cause may be in the mind, rather than physical.
If you have a diagnosis of this, it’s important to realise how you feel is absolutely real. Just because the causes might not be physical doesn’t mean you are at fault in any way. It’s just a different type of problem.
You might find this link to the excellent neurosymptoms.org to be helpful.
One of the many excellent things this web site does is to explain very clearly that people with these kind of troubles are absolutely not making it all up or imagining things. I hope that you find it reassuring.
Thank you all very much
