Dissociation. ..

Do you find yourself day dreaming more often then most? Do you have trouble staying in the moment?

I do! Below are the thoughts of my Community Psychiatric Nurse…

People often daydream, ¬†float from reality to non reality, because we have had emotional, painful and bad experiences in life. We want to get away from them. Short term, it’s a quick fix. Long term, the more we lock our feelings away, it transforms from a coping strategy to a problematic reality.

My interpretation is that subconsciously my personal dissociation is a protective shield. Only I have become so reliant on it, I have lost control. Perhaps it’s time to break that shield and allow myself to be vulnerable in order to fight, jump the hurdle? The only trouble is, so far… I don’t know how!

Thoughts, opinions, interpretation all welcome
