Processes of dissociation

“…if I refer to my body as ‘me’ but distrust its sensations, its language, its needs; if I say ‘my body’ but do not experience the body as part of ‘I’, it’s a very convenient place to dump my grief, fear, rage, anxiety, shame, guilt and sorrow. I have then only to suppress my awareness of the movement of these energies in it and they appear to be gone. By the time I get sick from this dissociation, I am genuinely puzzled at my misfortune, which seems to fall upon me like a bolt out of the blue.”
