Unhappy dissociating since childhood

as it turns out i have been dissociating (depersonalization and derealization mostly) since i was really young! i can't remember when it started but i was super young maybe 9? and i got scared and didn't tell my mom about it when i looked it up. this really worries me. i don't remember a specific trauma before then!! anyone else in this situation?

derealization and/or depersonalization don't necessarily occur from trauma. even just a child being overwhelmed in general by emotions/feelings (such as anxiety) can cause it.

I have had the same thing. I've had derealization and Depersonalization since I can remember. I am a person that has had anxiety for years though and feel stressed out a lot. I've also not had a childhood trauma experience.
