Is there a “disorder” that leaves ppl in a child like state of mind?
I mean like in such a way that a tramtic experience has happened while they were little and has locked that person mentally in the age before the event happened.
Sorry if that sounds werid/vague.
I’ve only ever heard of developmental disorders that keep people from maturing emotionally Also people who have been in comas for so long, when they wake up, they still have a mentality of a child. Hope this helps? Lol.
There’s dissociative identity disorder (DID)
It isn’t really someone stuck in a child like state of mind but there are cases of people having alters that are a child. Researching it is pretty interesting and has a lot of depth into it
Yes, like have you seen the movie “Split” its about a guy with that disorder and he has so many personalites like ones 13 and one of them which why they made it into a movie, is like a killer. So… I never watched I really do but idk
Yes I have seen Split, it’s a favourite of mine. But I wouldn’t really associate with DID in real life
Yeah, but like you know you kind of get the idea of what it is
It’s called bring emotionally stunted but beyond that there is no real medical term for it that I know of
Thank you all for your help!
Regression is only thing i can think of. Which is like the mind getting trapped in tht time period in this case a childlike mindset caused by trauma or stress
There is a term called Peter Pan Syndrome for adults who refuse to mature, if that helps.
Following on from those who discussed DID that may mean some sufferers have alters that can be children, here’s a link to a documentary of a lady who has DID and has an alter which is a three year old. In the video you can see both alters and she describes what it is like to live with DID.
