Depersonalization Disorder

11 02 2012

So I took this test. Because a little while ago I realized that I disassociate quite a lot. I didn’t even know that some of the things I was doing were disassociating.  I scored a 58. 




At times anyone may feel as if they are just going through the motions of life, or they may experience detachment from their feelings, but if these sensations are consistent and are making it hard to function and relate to others, these may be signs of dissociation. This screening test is designed to determine whether you have experienced signs of depersonalization and may be at risk for a dissociative disorder. Review the following statements and indicate how often you have had that experience. After finishing the test, click Score my Questionnaire and you will receive a brief summary. It is recommended that you share this questionnaire with a physician or mental health professional who can perform a complete evaluation and can determine whether you are experiencing depression and/or depersonalization.

“Your score of 37 falls in the range of Severe Depersonalization (25-75).We recommend that you be evaluated by a professional who is trained in the administration of the full SCID-D interview.”

Hmm. No.

I played it again and just put some stuff, you have to score under 15 for it to say you’re totally cool
