Dissociating, memory, trouble with words, bipolar, PTSD, writing, editing



My name is Xanthe Wyse. Diagnosed bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

I am dissociating in this video as my brain has been going offline with intense processing. It doesn’t look at apparent outwardly to how it feels for me experiencing it.

I stumble with my words at times which is the combination of the dissociation plus the sedation from taking my evening meds.

Talked a bit about memory issues and up to final editing of my novel, Pet Purpose after friend has proof-read manuscript. Friend was sad reading the novel, knowing it was based on my own experiences. Angry in places. But with a clear understanding of what bipolar mania with PTSD is like.

I hope to publish soon, initially as an e-book. Has been 7 years in the making. An exceptionally challenging project with my impairments in short-term memory plus difficulties with communication.
