> Larry, I think you described a dissociative episode- not one that amounts to DID, but which is on that spectrum- perhaps more towards the "ego state disorder" end. Having Complex PTSD myself, (although not knowing it until recently), I always tried to make very fair and thoughtful decisions, professionally, and remained unaware that I was often "triggered" into flashbacks by any sort of unfair or cruel behavior by others. I know much better, now! When similiar things happen to me, as happened to you, I *know* what is happening now, and know to let the younger, injured ego-states come into therapy and tell, as fully as possible, what they are feeling and suffering. The most helpful thing, I've found, is to let the feelings flow as freely as possible. It feels like that is where healing lies.

I been ponderating, and cogitating, and hmmmming on this concept.....

Okay, the little boy got ahold of the steering wheel and throttle (carjacked me, he did), but I wasn't thrown out. I was temporarily a passenger in the car. Took me a while to wrestle back the controls, and then a little while to get my bearings, 'cause the little bugger took me off route and into an unfamiliar neighbourhood.

I don't think I totally dissociated..... How would others interpret what I just said?
