I have a friend with dissociative disorder. I'm not even sure they are my friend, but I am their friend. Sometimes it's wonderful and sometimes it's highly frustrating dealing with this friend.
It seems we play this game of getting closer, then they push away, really hard!, and it's tough. This has happened often enough it feels like it must be some sort of reactive attachment disorder playing out, but it's still hard.
I am human and loving, and I want to have this person in my life, but I'm not sure they want me in their life?
Just wanted to share. I love this person very much and would love knowing all about their personalities, but when they hurt me, it is really, really hard.
