@ JJ123D - I am preparing a longer response to your question, so will answer shortly.
Yes, I can relate to what you are saying as i experienced that feeling as well. I would tell my parents that I still didn't feel well at certain points during my recovery and they would say something to the effect of "But I saw you earlier and you were smiling and laughing." I would reply that yes, I feel that I was doing those things, but somehow the emotional vibrancy of those actions was watered down. The reconnection that you speak does not mean that you have actually severed your 'self' from your 'actions/emotions/thoughts.' Truly, I believe as a result of my own recovery experience that this sense of dissociation is a function of the overwhelming stress and anxiety of our mind and body. As I worked towards being healthier and healthier, and my anxiety levels dropped, and my adrenals had time to recover, these symptoms began to fade away and I felt more 'embodied.'
