I’m new to the site and wondering if anyone has any tips for allowing journal writing to happen when you are prone to dissociation. I am currently in both regular therapy and specialized therapy for chronic pain and have a daily homework assignment of journaling but have found that I have a difficult time getting there on days where I’m struggling more and therefore dissociating to some degree. I find that I have no idea what to write about, or on the occasions when I can come up with something, I can’t seem to keep enough of a stream of thought going to continue writing through the allotted time (which is supposed to be for a minimum of 10 minutes). I just realized the fact that dissociation is a factor here and have been trying to focus on being in my body and doing things like noting, and naming something I can see, feel, hear, etc. but still find that I’m hitting a wall when it comes to letting things flow out onto the paper. Any tips/ideas would be appreciated.
