Complex PTSD: Intense emotions are often dissociated

Heal this and complex PTSD would not exist!!!

fom: Coping with Trauma related Dissociation

People with dissociative disorder have compartmentalized, intolerable intense emotions in various parts of their personality.  Sometimes parts that function in daily life do not experience much emotion and have learned to avoid feeling much.  They may experience feelings as “all or nothing,” that is, far too intense or not at all.  Some dissociative parts of the personality, living in trauma time, may experience the same emotion no matter the situation, such as fear, rage, shame, sadness, yearning and even some positive ones just as joy.  Other parts have a broader range of feeling.  Because emotions are often held in certain parts of the personality, different parts can have highly contradictory perceptions, emotions, and reactions to the same situation.

This explains many feelings, emotions, and doubts about the unknown haunting us at times.  This can be healed and all of you can be symptom free.  It says so, doesn’t it?

One response to this post.

  1. Because emotions are often held in certain parts of the personality, different parts can have highly contradictory perceptions, emotions, and reactions to the same situation. So we react crazily at times and we are pulled or conflicted. Yes that is very true.

    So certain parts of us react differently, making our decision to engage the contradiction or stay present important because of the consequences of our behavior. If we check out of now the present for those parts of trauma related related emotions we fuel complex PTSD. Stay present and be aware to integrate these parts.
