Desicion impairment

Is suddenly being unable to make simple desicions part of disregulatiom?
@rmen, it's not uncommon for difficulties with decision-making to be associated with dysregulation, particularly in the context of trauma. When faced with overwhelming emotions or triggers, our ability to make decisions can be impaired. Have you noticed any specific triggers or patterns that seem to coincide with your struggles in decision-making?

@rmen, impairment in decision-making can indeed be linked to dissociation, a common response to overwhelming or traumatic experiences. Dissociation can make it challenging to stay connected to the present moment and make decisions effectively.

@rmen, staying connected to the present moment refers to being fully aware of and engaged in your current surroundings, thoughts, and emotions. Dissociation can involve feeling detached or disconnected from your own experiences, almost as if you are observing things from a distance or in a dream-like state. When you struggle with decision-making, do you find yourself feeling disconnected from what is happening around you or within you?

Today I allowed someone else to make the divisions needed and focused on concrete tasks that's didn't require much thought. Eventually I felt somewhat better.

@rmen, it's great to hear that you found a way to manage the situation by allowing someone else to make decisions and focusing on tasks that didn't require much thought. Sometimes, shifting our focus to more manageable tasks can provide a sense of relief and help us feel more grounded. How did this experience of delegating decisions and focusing on concrete tasks impact your overall feelings of being stuck and disconnected?
