Unhappy Lapses in time?

Today, I had something weird happen to me. I mean, weird in that it is, albeit not new, but worsening from the last time I experienced this. Yesterday.

I daydream a lot, and I know this. I get lost in my thoughts. Today, though, after I asked my friend to come visit me and drop off something I left in his truck, I had a vivid thought of going to his house with him. I wanted to know if the blow-dryer I owned when we were together was still under the sink, since I was doing my hair tonight. I could have weighed myself, too, which seemed like a good idea.

My friend came by and I got my stuff back. I started blow drying my hair with my roommate's blow dryer, before I stopped and almost went looking for my blow dryer. I didn't remember where I put it and didn't understand why I was using my roommate's when I had gotten mine back. As I went to leave the room, I tried to remember the number on the scale because I weighed myself.

Then it dawned on me. I had never left. I hadn't gotten in my friend's truck and gone to his house and done all those things. I asked my roommate if I had even left. Nope. I had stayed. I don't remember what happened from that daydream to my friend showing up to what I did afterwards. Everything is a blur.

Is this normal?

The clown that lived under my bed when I was younger is back, along with a few others that have seemed to have unpacked and settled. Today, they haven't been showing up so much; but I can't account for the time I spent in over an hour. I remember being somewhere where I wasn't.

Any experiences with something similar, please share.

Once I was hospitalized and had no idea how I got there. I was TDO'd and had to go to court, they asked me why I was there and I didn't know. The doctor said I was catatonic.

I have lost track of time have also forgotten significant things in my life including not only traumatic things but also good things. I have done things without realizing it and said things without realizing it. I get so absorbed in my thoughts. In addition to having Schizoaffective Disorder Bipolar Type, I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with Dissociative Features so my mind checks out from that.

I take Lithium (mood stabilizer), Rexulti (anti-psychotic), Abilify in a shot once per month (anti-psychotic) and Lexapro (anti-depressant). Then Trazodone for sleep and a high blood pressure medication Prazosin, for nightmares. Rexulti is a newer medication.

This was pretty common for me. Since I've been on meds that control my hallucinations and delusions it happens less often. I still space out a lot and have trouble, especially in the morning with figuring out what happened in my dreams versus reality. It took a few years and some hospitalizations but for the last 4.5 years I've been hallucination and delusion free. I'm thankful to no longer have the girl living in my closet and I suspect your clown is just as intrusive. If you haven't sought medical help yet I'd encourage you to do so. It's amazing how much better life can be on the right combination of meds.

I've had this happen during moments of going to the ward. I was hospitalized one time and have very little memory of it besides when I woke up strapped to the bed. Apparently I was making threats, but I don't remember a thing. That could have been due to the overdose.

Apparently there were things said at the hospital by the doctors that my grandmother remembers, but I can't recall.

I have very little recollection of things from before I was about 9 when I started really struggling with MI. I was a big daydreamer when I was younger though and would zone out some times.
