Now that you know that you dissociate to try to help yourself cope with unbearable feelings surrounding childhood neglect and abuse- of whatever kind-try your very best to find a therapist who deals with PTSD and the spectrum of dissociative disorders. I know it's very hard to do, because of your not having worked recently- and also because there really aren't many therapists who are skilled enough to deal well with that- but do try. I just in the last two years finally went to a therapist who specializes in that, and he has helped me SO much more than the other therapists I went to before. Those therapists didn't have any idea that that was what was really wrong with me- I didn't know either, and was keeping myself from knowing anything about the csa that had happened to me. It has been such a relief to uncover at least some of those unconscious memories- almost immediately, a lot of my depression and anxiety went away. I'd say, ask each therapist you see whether they have experience with Complex PTSD- csa and disorders on the dissociative spectrum. It won't be easy to find the right therapist, but, if you keep looking, you will find just the right one for you. Therapists who are knowledeable about all of this really like working with patients who suffer from it, because, serious as it is, it has a GOOD prognosis if treated properly.
