I'm confused as to why you quoted me. I don't have alters. I don't have closing eyes when I dissociate. I have severe dissociation, and have lived a great deal of my life in a dream world. I now know how to ground myself and be present. For me, dissociation has no unpleasantness associated with it, and it's how I got through my trauma as a child.what you are experiencing with the eyes closing could be an emergence of a “child alter” and/or a physical enanxent of the original trauma.
