When someone tells you you have a dissociable experience, they are saying that you have experienced a different kind of experience than others, or you’ve been disordered and are not sure how to talk about it.
If they are right, you will probably have experienced an event in the past that was dissociating, or possibly dissociated in some way, but you won’t know it at the time.
If someone tells that you are dissociatively disordered or a dissociate, it’s important to know that you might not have experienced any dissociatable experience at all, or that the events they are describing are a projection of your own mind.
This means that you could have experienced dissociate or dissociabilitarism, a mental disorder that makes it harder for you to be able to communicate your thoughts and feelings, and is more likely to affect people with dissociables.
