To a Dissociate who has suffered deep abuse "self absorption" is absorption in a falsely created shadow self. A true external entity. A false image. This gives a hint of explanation for the strangest thing of all about us as Dissociates: we are as out of touch with ourselves as we are with the rest of the world!

We all can get out of touch with ourselves and lose track of how we actually feel. This comes from being too intensely focused too much of the time. Especially with sedentary work. In this state, the brain learns to filter out sensation. One of the benefits of Eastern practices like Yoga and Tai Chi is that it helps us get back in touch with ourselves.

What goes on in dissociation is essentially the same thing but to a bizarre degree.

How bizarre? Well, we are afraid we'd have to see it to believe it.The first time maybe on this blog.

How do we, dissociates get so far out of touch with ourselves? We do it simply by keeping focused on something all the time. We fill the gaps between daily work and appearances before mirrors with distractions. One thing we've noticed about dissociation is that we must always be busy, busy, busy. And when there's nothing to do, we bury our noses in a book or newspaper, or we glue ourselves to a TV -- anything to avoid a moment of quiet reflection. Blaring radios, sleep, TV, aimless busywork, useless reading — anything to keep burying that repressed child within (our true self) so it doesn't surface to consciousness in a moment of self awareness.
