Explanation Of Depersonalization Disorder?
I have a friend and is experiencing depersonalization disorder stage 1, can you please help me how to explain to my friend what he experienced. I am afraid of the wrong words.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Depersonalization disorder or depersonalization disorder is a certain form of mental disorder in which a person feels himself unreal, or he feels a severance between his consciousness and himself. People with this disorder report that they feel the sensation of not being able to control their thoughts and actions, and they feel they are watching their own minds and bodies from a distance, and are not really in their bodies.
Furthermore, they are characterized by conditions that are difficult to distinguish between real and what is only a dream. This disorder can appear alone, or as a sign of other mental disorders such as dementia or decreased brain function and schizophrenia. The cause is still unknown, but is thought to be closely linked to stress and traumatic experiences in the past.
Regarding your question, if you feel the need to explain the disease to your friends, what needs to be examined here is who initially diagnosed him with the disorder. Because if he has been examined, or checked himself to a psychiatrist or at least to a psychologist, he should not only be given the diagnosis, but also explained. Or at least he will ask if you do not understand the diagnosis.
In addition, so far this disorder is not divided into several stages, so it is necessary to ascertain what is meant by stage 1 by the person who diagnosed it.
Our advice, if you are afraid of wrong words, since this is an illness, it would be far better if you immediately submit it to the experts, who in this case are psychiatrists. No need to force to explain this to him because it is not your obligation, but the obligation of a psychiatrist or psychiatrist who treats him. After all, we also can't be sure that you have the right understanding to convey to others through this one-way question and answer forum. Thus, the potential for misunderstanding is still large.
So from back again we submit, you better leave it to the experts. With a psychiatrist's examination, he will get a thorough examination and proper treatment, and as a friend you can simply persuade him and those around him to take him to a psychiatrist. So, hopefully answering your question.
