> Depending on the type and extent of dissociation, is it always necessary to stop? If it interferes with your life and goals, or places you or others in danger, then of course. But it can also be a protection, and I'm frankly loath to give it up. I'm more interesting in learning to control it, and that to me means learning more about it, and breaking it into its smallest pieces so that I can understand.

**I dunno Dinah. I think littleone made an excellent point in that after a time dissociating is no longer pleasant.
I have said that dissociating is a blessing and a curse. I cannot imagine NOT being able to dissociate(eg. sex), but oftentimes I dissociate when I don't want to(just about ANY time I feel the slightest threat).
And for me there's diff dissociations. Blanking, sphere, being more in another ego state etc.
So I see your point about control.
Its a good point.
I have no control :(
Zero :(
Hope you doing OK ((Dinah))
Take care,
Muffled
