#dissociation

not unreasonable and not personal: “I get triggered by things relating to religion and/or spirituality, and the way that people talk about a lot of spiritual ideas make me feel disconnected from reality, and that's not a good thing for me. it would be helpful for those posts to be tagged as containing spiritual themes.”
unreasonable and offensive: “could you never ever make posts about your spiritual beliefs please? and if you do, could you tag them as unreality? because those beliefs are definitely not real. also nobody should have spiritual beliefs at all because it’s unhealthy for everyone.” 
not unreasonable and not personal: “spirituality is a huge part of my life, and I talk about it a lot. it would be unfair to expect me to go back through and tag every single post where I talk about my relationship to my spirituality. therefore, I think for the sake of both of us, you should just block me.”
unreasonable and offensive and also BAD: “your hallucinations/dissociation is a sign from the spiritual realm that spirituality is real. you should listen to those hallucinations, and tell us what they say. the fact that you experience these things makes you special and important in the grand scheme of the universe.”
hope this helps.

i hate being in denial. i hate thinking that I'm a fake system attention seeker. being a system is not beautiful, for me. but ggjhffd, I can't stop thinking I may be faking sometimes. -roy

Dissociation culture is leaving spaces you're familiar with and being more seceptible to zoning out and leaving the place you're in because it's unfamiliar, and a part of you keeps telling you that none of its real and when you wake up you'll be back at home. And when you sleep in this new place and you're awake you don't open your eyes because you like the reality in your head that you're still sleeping in your old bed and you'll wake up at home and not here.

Back in the day I was told I was “mature for my age” but I don’t know where that went. It’s almost as if everyone grew up and reached the level of maturity I was forced to reach due to the circumstances and now I am going back a couple of years to make up for the time I spent suffering.

Picture 2; ‘Being left to “fend for yourself” when you needed safety and security’.
Picture 3; ‘Having your feelings invalidated and denied whenever your sought emotional support’.
Picture 4; ‘Being forced to “self sooth” alone and find escape from your painful reality (eg. Video games)’.

psa that unreality is a trigger just as much as anything else, and a hugely common trigger for those with dissociative disorders and psychotic-spectrum disorders in particular. it is a necessary tag that is often left off posts and it needs to become more normalised to include the “unreality tw” tag on these posts to prevent derealisation and delusion spirals, so that the internet is a bit safer and kinder for ppl with mental illness.

dissociation is not the same as zoning out.
really liking something is not the same as having a hyperfixation.
being tempted to do something is not the same as a compulsion.
not being good at spelling is not the same as being dyslexic, having maths anxiety is not the same as having dyscalculia, and being clumsy is not the same as being dyspraxic.
dying your hair a funky colour and then spending a weekend alone is not the same as having a mental breakdown.
stop using specific psychological words to mean something different to what it really means.
because conflating a normal experience everyone has with a symptom or trait of a mental illness or neurodivergence causes real harm. it takes the meaning away from a word meant to describe a specific, and often challenging, experience.

Disassociation culture is getting really angry at teenagers who fake DID and actually dissociating and flipping out on them, but being treated like you're the bad guy because even though you've been professionally diagnosed with disociations and CPTSD for 14 years, you're not welcome in your own community, because it's full of 13 year olds who roll their eyes dramatically and then badly cosplay as Eric Cartman or Naruto.
