    I have had numerous different therapists and doctors who specialize in trauma tell me that I dissociate. Huh? What exactly is that and do I look really zombie-like? I have had over 40 traumas in my life since I was 3 years old and there are many more that I cannot remember yet. I am in EMDR therapy so I can attempt to remember my repressed memories and process them in a healthy way. Maybe this is a stupid and selfish question but, how do I look during these episodes? I just think that I am losing time or I am back in a certain situation but I am looking at the event from above, almost like I'm flying. When I snap out of it I sometimes realize that I had been drooling or something embarrassing like that. How do I look really while I'm out of it?

    I'm sorry but I just really want to learn more about dissociation. Can you at least provide some kind of information for me?

    Not my area of expertise, but asking for help like this on a forum is not the way forward. Ask your therapist / medical professional.
