7: Trauma, OCD And Dissociation — Enjoying Things Again
Discussion of trauma, OCD and dissociation, and how these can impact the ability to enjoy things. I talk about my battle to unlearn anxious habits which were learned during traumatic life situations.
This anxious activity results in a level of dissociation which seems to serve a purpose for minimising painful experiences at the time, but leaves me struggling to enjoy the simplest of daily things. However, I also talk about my reasons for optimism.
List of discussion topics:
- Body-focused repetitive behaviours
- Emotional trauma
