Muffled

I hope no one thinks you are stupid, and I doubt they do. If they don't understand dissociation, well then they have not been paying attention in their lives is my guess. I say this because there is normal dissociation too. The best example is when someone drives a long distance back and forth in the counrty like I did when I did one of my practicums. I went the same way twice per week, and my mind would drift to thought of the day or I would listen to the radio, and then all of a sudden I would note I was 10 miles further down the road than I thought I was. I would say, gosh did I stop at that stop sign back there six miles, and stuff like that. This happens to everyone in some situation or another. So, they should have some idea of what is it like to not be fully present. Or like going to a movie and being so absorbed you don't notice you dropped your popcorn or something like that. I bet people have examples they could share. Of course then there is the dissociation from being triggered, etc. But the process is basically the same for both.
