I have chronic depression (being treated with Prozac), and have anxiety attacks, fibromyalgia, and a history of childhood abuse. In the past 5 years I have increasingly frequent "lost time" episodes. I (apparently) can drive, carry on conversations, and work, etc. I never feel myself dissociating...just "popping" back in, with no memory of what has transpired in the missing period of time, sometimes just an hour, sometimes a full day. My question is, if I am "dissociated", who is driving my car, talking to business associates, etc? Apparently, the dissociation must not be evident to those around me. How can I be "out", and still functioning?
