You could say, most of this doesn't apply to me but my therapist thought that the general coping mechanisms would help me. Trauma is trauma. (practice so you don't cry when you say it.)

Don't dismiss the body sensations. Tell your therapist. Could be a flashback trying to break through. Skip ahead to the section on crisis phase, read it, book mark it. This book can trigger you in horrible ways. I take it out and read it in small doses. I think this is why my therapist wanted to work on it together -- doing the assignments and talking about them. I felt pretty undone by it all.

Figure out your own rules. Mine are: Don't read this before bed. Don't read the stories in the back on a non-therapy day. Flip open a section and pay attention to how my body feels. If my chest hurts, I'm done for awhile.

I hope this helps you. Go slow. Take care of yourself. I'm open to questions if you think I can help too.
