It feels more important to prioritize the present, but I also know that unresolved past trauma is a common thread that makes my life more challenging. For example, it feels more pressing to talk about my inability to commit to a long-term partner...2) Can you just replay social situations over and over in your head without having social anxiety? I often find myself ruminating after socialising on what has happened, what I have said, projected or presented. I'll rerun the encounter in my head and comb through to make sure that I wasn't offensive or rude, etc. I wonder about what they think of my image, if they ...3) How do you know if you’re being re traumatized in your therapy sessions?I’ve been working through traumas in therapy and I’ve been unable to stay present. It started as dissociation in session to now having full-on panic attacks in session. It’s gotten so bad that I start to want to ...4) Please can you give examples of what less severe dissociation is? I feel numb/ empty quite a lot of the time and like there is a part of me missing.

I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety since I was about 12, and with the social anxiety specifically, my dad would get angry and say that I was being immature and selfish, so I feel like that could have a...10) How common is it to be victimized 2 times?
