Does anyone else experience lost time? Do you ever hear about things that you do not remember doing?
yup, when i was younger and should’ve been on meds but we didn’t know I had a MI, my mom claims i broke her ice dispenser on the front of the fridge, almost broke the microwave, and a few other things that I don’t remember.
For all i know i could’ve blacked out i have no idea.
How long were the periods of time that you blacked out for?
probably 30 minutes. my brain now compensates for this by giving me false memories of how it happened but I know I truly dont remember.
maybe longer to be honest…
I lose time. I hear about doing things or saying things I don’t remember. I have the worlds worse memory and I dissociate terribly. It’s a hard way to go about life, but it’s easier now that I have my husband to help me remember and I take meds which seem to help me stay in my body more. So I’m doing pretty good right now.
great to hear, leaf. my memory is hit or miss.
I remember this one time I kinda came to and I was standing in the frozen food isle of a grocery store with the door open, not knowing how long I had been standing there or what I was there to get I felt panicked. I closed the door and walked to the next isle. I calmed myself down and read the list I had in my hand and check the basket to see if I had the frozen items I needed, which I did not. To this day I don’t remember getting to the store or shopping for any of the items in my cart. Very scary feeling. Makes me want to panic and run from the situation which I’ve had to do a couple times, once with a very full cart. Me and grocery stores don’t get along well anyway, I get very anxious that’s why I usually use Ativan before I shop.
oh wow that doesn’t sound fun at all. I wish you the best.
Losing time is so scary benzos seem to be the only thing that can truly calm me down but the rebound anxiety after is unbearable it’s better for me to just not take them
I don’t get rebound anxiety unless I’m taking the benzos everyday. I only take 20 mg per month and I just choose wisely when I take it. If I’m on 90 mg per month and try to skip a day the rebound is unbelievable. Took me years to figure that out. It’s good you know already. That’s good listening to your body.
Years later my mother told me that in my younger days I had joined up with some evil cult. What the heck ? In truth I had gone to a science fair that was held at a Four Seasons Hotel. So you can’t always believe what you hear about yourself.
Often I space out and then I look at the clock and many hours have passed and I didn’t realize it.
I listen to music, blink, then the day is done. Where does the time go and then I think, well at least its something that keeps me from having any hallucinations.
Yeah. I lost time but only while psychotic off of meds. It doesn’t seem to happen on meds. I lost a few days once the last time I was hospitalized. It really scared me.
