Did they say dissociate or disassociate?



Dissociation is any of a wide array of experiences from mild detachment from immediate surroundings to more severe detachment from physical and emotional experiences. The major characteristic of all dissociative phenomena involves a detachment from reality, rather than a loss of reality as in psychosis.

What does disassociate mean?

disassociate(Verb) To separate oneself from a person or situation. After the scandal, the political party disassociated itself from the questionable candidate. disassociate(Verb) To separate into smaller discrete units. The problem is easier to understand if you disassociate the variables.

People confuse the words sometimes.


Assuming he meant dissociate, my doctor said a little dissociation is okay. I’m not sure I agree with her because I had it bad. When you are overstimulated, paranoid, thinking too much, seeing reality too much, then detaching a little bit is not bad, I guess.
