Childhood Trauma and Stuck Parts



From Coping with Trauma Related Dissociation:

People with dissociative disorder often have related problems of time distortions. They experience time passing by much too slow or fast; perhaps more time has passed than they thought, or an hour seems like an entire day.

Some parts of the personality are often quite confused about where they are in space and time, believing they are still in the past.

When people with a dissociative disorder are alienated from their body, they may be insensitive to physical pain or lack sensation in parts of their body.

Some people report that they do not always always properly register heat and cold, cannot feel whether they are hungry or tired, or feel numb in their body.

Again, it is typically the case other parts of the self do feel the physical pain., the hunger, or other bodily sensations.

There are many different symptoms of depersonalization, but in every case it seems to be a way of avoidance or attempting to regulate overwhelming feelings or experiences.

Depersonalization symptoms may be temporary or chronic.

    Wow that’s interesting about the time thing. Would that explain why a week between therapy sessions feels like a whole month every single time? It might not be but I hadn’t even considered it could potentially be the dissociation causing it.

  2. Search for your stuck parts and see which ones have distorted time

    Okay will do, thanks

  4. I used to feel like I was a kid again some days. Those days my trauma was up and a stuck,part had come forward

    Just think we had to do things to survive our childhood trauma. Some parts resented what other parts did.

    Some parts kept current, present moment, while others stayed behind.

    Look at how we spot danger. Certain parts are on point all the time, scared and watching for danger.
