I wonder why we have (I have) this feeling of confusion all the time? Like I am lost in the world, alone, and feel in another planet. People near me seem not to belong to the same place that me. And sometimes, just going out and in a place makes me confused (it's all the time) Why this constant confusion when I change place, or move, or put my attention outward???? Why my mind plays this trick and how not to be scared? It's so scary, I can't accept that, please tell me what is wrong and how to accept it until it goes away.

because you're functioning as if there had been a trauma (and the trauma was your breakdown experience)

The mind is on high alert for anything that smacks of CHange (change of place, change of time, change of emotions, etc.) It is trying to keep you frozen (like a deer in headlights)

It's the mind's response to anxiety in the form of dissociation.

Every transition become heightened. Sleep to waking, waking to sleep, etc...we are on the lookout for any new "state" of being, and we react with massive defense to any such shock. That's why we are often scared to fall asleep (afraid of the new "state' of being not awake)

I don't know.

I still know when I "disconnect", but I don,t know how to reconnect. I stay disconnected for the day :( And I have some triggers : (going in an out a place)
