Hi Dinah,
I'm glad you found a book that was such a comfort for you- and also glad you recognize that you're being triggered by something in it. When I read, it's usually the case studies that make me dissociate, apparently that's pretty common. I agree with Terra concerning books written about dissociation that is not trauma based, I honestly am not aware of any- which certainly doesn't mean they don't exist. I've spoken to my therapist about integration only because I was curious about her views, not because I'm anywhere near that point. She pretty much said what Terra said- it's a process and an individual decision. I read Terra's last statement with great interest- I think (my therapist 'knows') that I have a child state who is aware of my trauma- I have no desire to know of 'her' or her knowledge. The problem is the more I turn my back, the more I'm pushed- with flashbacks, notes, serious dissociative states that end in SI. So I think I've just come full cycle here- I'm obviously in a process of overcoming denial and generally have a long way to go. BTW, panic disorder has symptoms of dissociative states that are not trauma based as does temporal lobe epilepsy. Wishing you all the best- judy
