People with dissociative disorder often have related problems of time distortions.
.
.
They experience time passing by much too slow or fast; perhaps more time has passed than they thought, or an hour seems like an entire day.
.
.
Some parts of the personality are often quite confused about where they are in space and time, believing they are still in the past.
.
.
When people with a dissociative disorder are alienated from their body, they may be insensitive to physical pain or lack sensation in parts of their body.
.
.
Some people report that they do not always always properly register heat and cold, cannot feel whether they are hungry or tired, or feel numb in their body.
.
.
Again, it is typically the case other parts of the self do feel the physical pain., the hunger, or other bodily sensations.
.
.
There are many different symptoms of depersonalization, but in every case it seems to be a way of avoidance or attempting to regulate overwhelming feelings or experiences.
.
.
Depersonalization symptoms may be temporary or chronic.
