Dinah - Thanks for posting. No I hadn't read that book but just checked it out on amazon and it looks very interesting. Will reserve it from the library. I agree that there is a spectrum that is based upon the use of dissociation as a defense so it should be an interesting read.
And no, you aren't being suggestive but I am curious, did you make that suggestion based on the fact that I tend to dissociate after some sessions or because I experience "the stranger" as "not-me"? Just curious. When I was younger I would have been diagnosed (if they had done that then) with DID, now just have a few stray symptoms left, mostly some amnesia and identity issues. My T discourages me from thinking too much about diagnosis so I haven't worried too much about it. But I do like reading books about things I experience or have experienced, so thanks for the suggestion.
