Two Types of Disassociating

It’s not like I’m just started therapy. I’ve been going for years. I’ve been working on my mental health for a while now. Mental health issues are real and my issue arises with money.

People with bipolar need someone to hold their money. But it seems like this is enabling.

When I deal with money I dissasociate with my money is placed in my hands. I get anxious and overly stressed. Thus I Dissociate

Dissociation is any of a wide array of experiences from mild detachment from immediate surroundings to more severe detachment from physical and emotional experiences. … At the nonpathological end of the continuum, dissociation describes common events such as daydreaming. There are two kinds.

Depersonalization – experiences of unreality or detachment from one’s mind, self or body. People may feel as if they are outside their bodies and watching events happening to them. Subjects feel they have changed and that the world has become vague, dreamlike, less real, lacking in significance or being outside reality while looking in

Derealization – experiences of unreality or detachment from one’s surroundings. People may feel as if things and people in the world around them are not real.

I get so stressed over money that I dissasociate.
