This is very frustrating, we have three copies of Indesign CC all running on windows 8.
Some copies display this behavior more than others.
Basically you click in a text box to add text and it all disappears until you click out of the box an it re-appears.
A quick Google reveals I am not alone with this problem, is there to be a fix released, at times Indesign is unusable.
Soundds more like an issue with your video driver than a bug in ID. Have you checked for updated drivers?
No, my laptop has dual video cards both up to date drivers and same problem with both.
