kt is having/displaying fewer dissociative states. Having said that, we are witnessing these sames states while she is in the shower. I feel the need to be in the bathroom while she is in her "altered" state. Some days it's a puppy, others it's a kitten or infant. Because she is in her "altered" state she doesn't protest the lack of privacy. When I announce that shower/bath time is over there is a definite reconnection, if you will. Not immediately - generally within the next hour or so. kt seems so relaxed & in control after these times of disconnect. kt sees therapist this coming week & I will bring it up. I find it to be refreshing because these states seem to be in a very controlled environment. kt seems to have learned to select a "safe" environment. Am I being clear? husband & I are documenting this for psychiatrist & therapist.
