> I asked him how it worked in other people and he admitted that he wasn't sure. That he was he knew dissociative clients had these experiences, but he wasn't sure how they worked, or even if they worked the same in all clients with a talent for dissociation.
> Any ideas out there? I used to refer to that function as "the controller" but stopped when I realized my therapist was taking the phrase to mean a self state rather than a sort of switchboard or circuit breaker or something the way I meant it. Does anyone with similar experiences (if anyone does have similar experiences) have any thoughts?>>>>>>

i'm so excited that i can post. lately i would want to respond but none of my info would show up in the appropriate place on the response message and i couldn't send. how do i get this info in the future so that i can participate? what i have been wanting to share the past few weeks was wonderful, i'm sure. lol

anyway, about your post and dissociating: when i get intensely uncomfortable (as i often do in therapy) i'm so quick to retreat to this place inside myself. I NEVER want to return and have to force myself back. if i'm still enough my perceptions are very distorted... my head will feel like it's growing out of my hip, or the room will have a surreal feel, that is never scary and always preferrable to being present in the moment with my therp. all that said, it isn't as easy for me to access this anymore so when i get close i will find that i try harder to go to this place that i'm not supposed to visit anymore... i swear to you, i miss it! and i think you are so right on when you call it talent. it was the only way to endure the long scary nights that i did as a child. i'm grateful for it. now, how to hang on to it for recreational puposes without sacrifing real life?
