Give yourself time. I reacted the same way you did when I first started thinking about the dissociated selves. I told my analyst, "let's get rid of her!" (the angry, enraged girl). When you feel ready, it will become much easier to deal with, but you can't hurry the process.

One thing that helped me a lot was journalling imaginary dialogues, as I allowed them to come to mind, between my adult self and the angry girl, and showing them to my analyst. But it was a number of months before I became comfortable enough to really work steadily on the dissociations, with all their complexity. Now that I'm able to, I'm feeling a lot better. I wish the same for you!
