I have always done that, but am more in the now, now. Now now, that sounds wierd. But I use to daydream a lot in school, or be worrying about what was going on at home, would I come home to a fight, and things like that.
I know that I have driven somewhere and don't remember the trip, I am just glad that I didn't wreck the car but I must be concentrating on the road with out realizing it.
My mind use to wander so much that I wouldn't be paying attention to what I am doing and drop things. Or people could be talking and I don't hear a word that they say. Does this sound like the same thing?
It sounds like your counselor is really doing some good for you. You learn more everytime you see her. I am happy for that. I do know that our mind protects us, so when you are ready, all of this will work out. Have faith in yourself, you will be able to let it all out when you are comfortable with it.
In the meantime, we are here for you and my email is always open to you. So write when ever you feel the need to.
Luv and hugs, Karen
Dissociation is a term mainly used to describe when people are able to seperate overwhelming experiences or memories from the concious mind. Its usually something that happens subconciously so there is little control over it (Which is probably why your therapist is impressed that you can do it). Its not always a bad thing... its a mechanism that helps to protect your concious mind.
