I've googled this on various occasions, but I assume you guys are more likely to be of help since I'm sure some of you experience this. My husband has a dissociative disorder. It could be either DID or DDNOS. I can't be certain which one, but I know for a fact that it's one of the two. It happened again yesterday. Following a stressful situation, he said he had chest pains and a splitting headache that kept coming and going. I kept asking him what was going on and begged him to talk to me. He told me to stay away and stop talking because he was afraid of how he'd react if I didn't. I backed off. I then noticed he was spacing out, and his mood suddenly went from depressed to somewhat hostile and, for lack of better words, eerily happy. The headaches also stopped. If you or someone you know has gone through anything like this, are you aware of any headaches and pains when you/they dissociate? How long does the dissociation last and what does it feel like when it starts to come on? Do you miss chunks of time? For DID, specifically, do the alters have different names and do they know about what other alters have done/experienced? Anything else would also be of tremendous help.
