Putting myself out there-"the trance."
I have read about the trance like state and I totally do it. Five minutes to me can be hours. But during the time, my mind goes over and over scenarios. They typically involve avoiding/combating verbal/physical/sexual abuse. Or they may involve ruminating over a news/tv show of related topic that scares me or makes me angry. Some of it simply involves me thinking of the perfect comeback to a difficult coworker but all the subjects circle in and out of my mind. The weirdest part is that I feel like such a victim, but I do not recall any sexual or severe physical abuse as a child. Wow. I have NEVER told anyone that. I wonder if this is why I pick. I know I do it when I feel insecure and inadequate (much of the time although others may not know it). Does anyone else experience 1: the trance and/or 2: the scenarios (It's like I'm dreaming/having a nightmare with my eyes open)? I am afraid of your responses but I need to know if this is true of others. Thank you.
