> No, it's not complete dissociation, because you're still aware of everything around you- and also very aware of how you would have preferred to have acted. I just meant that a younger, angrier part (which wouldn't exist without the abuse you described) was temporarily expressing his feelings.

Even though it's happened hundreds of times in therapy (and of course outside, too), it always startles me that it's considered a different ego state which is not well integrated with the rest of me. Integration- holding the different states and feelings in mind simultaneously, and accepting them all, is our goal.

Thanks for talking to me at my pace. I think you startled me, too. I had a bit of an "Oh no!" sort of reaction, even though I had already said that I understood disocciative experiences to be in the same realm I occupy.

That's probably why I felt the need to talk this through, feeling on the verge of pressing forward with a new insight into what happens to me when I get triggered.

I have a counselling session next week. I think I have a topic already picked out.

Thanks,
Lar
