I suppose you would use the word "DisAssociate" in a sentence like, "I really feel disturbed by this politician's political views and must disassociate from them; I feel uncomfortable with them."
I rarely hear that word, but then when I say that, it shows up everwhere.
The word, the MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY, for what we experience is a category, defined in the DSM and the ICD called Dissociation.
And I guess it bothers me as some spell larynx as larnyx lol and say it all the time, or say NOO-KEW-LER instead of NOO-KLEE-ER. And maybe I spelled those incorrectly.
One is a lay term, an everyday term, the other is a MEDICAL term. Wish I could find another example. Can't think of one.
Bottom line, if we don't call our illness by its correct name, how can we be taken seriously?
We have enough problems as it is. :?
