Dissociative Fugue

​My brother suffers from Dissociation Fugue. He was not always like this; it is just something that happened. His real estate business went under, and he was under a lot of stress. He began drinking too much, which only made things worse. Dissociative Fugue is a disorder where a person temporarily forgets who they are. They also forget past events and seem to be in a state of confusion more often than not. His doctors say that extreme stress can cause the disease, as can drinking. Sometimes when people drink they "blackout". That blackout is a state of Dissociative Fugue. This is a good reason not to turn to drink when under a great deal of stress. It can break you permanently.

Wow. I've never heard of the term and while I'm familiar with blackouts, I didn't realize it had a name and was associated with other similar phenomena at other times. So does your brother only encounter this when he drinks then?

Hmm, this is quite interesting. I've always thought blackouts are harmless, silly things. But then again, drinking can really cause a lot of problems and stress is the cause of a lot of psychological disorders.

Well to drink so alcohol that your body shuts down isn't exactly "harmless." I know what you mean, though, about not thinking it would lead to anything like -this.- Add in stress and it can really cause some problems. :(
