From Coping with Trauma Related Dissociation:

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.

My two cents: If you suffer from childhood abuse, stuck parts complicate recovery.

For me, anger was stuck in my childhood.

Having a violent narcissist as a father, prohibited me from ever expressing anger in his presence.

Do you have stuck parts?
