Default Re: dissociative states, how to get back out

Tucking in (it's more ambiguous than "bed" - I never would add the word "bed" - too triggering for too many people -- is a practice that is someone complex, needs to be done kindly, and ---requires assistance from the outside, initially, until it becomes a habit.

In general, I don't know about you, sabotaging ego states need to be appreciated and understood for what they are trying to accomplish, which is usually safety in some sense. Sometimes they are loyal to a perpetrator, and need to be oriented to what life they are actually living, and whose body they are actually in. Again, needs outside assistance. Like have a tooth filled, hard to do yourself.

good luck!
