    I feel like Iv been crying.

    Im not sure if anyone can shed any light on this for me. I got up at 5 am and went through my usual routine of going for breakfast, doing odds and ends. I came hom and tried to get things done around the house.
    2:30 came around and I realised I had been trapped in a mind storm all day, locked in my head thinking about scenarios, and actions Id like to see myself doing. I wont go into details but the thoughts all surrounded emotions towards situations and not practical or rational by any means in my daily life. I had been robbed of myself by myself. Now post 2:30 I feel like I have been balling my eyes out all day,physically and mentally, even my eyes are tired. Its like the entire morning was a dream. Im not sure what this is, I have no knowledge of psychology, but it has been happening lately. The best I can do to counter act this problem is to load my system up with fresh live food.
    Any feedback would be appreciated. The situation is not pleasant.

    INTP/ISFJ: Ti/Si or Si/Ti--Schizotypal Personality Disorder. I see this most commonly in INTP dom/tert loops (Ti+Si), resulting in totally giving up on attempting to obtain the social/interpersonal connections that inferior Fe drives them to unconsciously desire. Schizotypal people are seen (and typically see themselves) as having such unusual thoughts and behaviors that widespread social acceptance is nearly impossible. Ti thinks, "I cannot find any logical explanation for social rituals" and Si reinforces this self-isolating, risk-averse behavior by constantly reminding the user: "Remember how badly this went last time you tried?" If Ne were doing its job, it would remind the user to continue experimenting to find a new approach. In the ISFJ version, Si becomes ultra risk-averse and refuses to try anything new or unfamiliar. If Fe were doing its job, the ISFJ would learn that some risk is necessary in order to uphold obligations to others and avoid living in total solitude. Deep down, these types really do want social connection and ritual (Fe), but have found themselves so poor at it that they simply give up trying.

    Does this strike a chord at all?

    When you speak of "emotions towards situations" are you talking about experiences in your past? the future? just possibilities?

    Have you heard of dissociative disorders before?

    Thanks for your reply Nova,

    The post you provided strikes a very strong resemblance to my typical behaviour.
    I do however in certain situations have no reservation taking control, leading and delegating people around me, but only in a purely objective impersonal matter. Its almost as if an alter ego comes through as I handle these instances in a very confident alpha manner which totally contradicts my true self.
    Im often a sounding board for many people on personal and professional level. This is ok for me as I can take a third person perspective and deal with such situations objectively. However If you were a stranger and you came up to me and said hello with no objective I would lock up, speechless, nervous, and painfully shy. If conversation unfolds further, but more specifically on a topic Im not ofey with, Im looking for a way out. I feel threatened. This kinda hurts as I should be taking interest in the individual not the topic of conversation.
    An example. The cafe where I have breakfast the girls there are so friendly, Its like I put up a wall of ice, and struggle with even the most basic of phatic communication. I sweat, feel clammy, and dissapointed in myself afterwards that I couldn't speak. I may be misreading the next part, but it seems now they are uncomfortable in approaching me due to my apparent arrogant nature, which in truth could'nt be further from the truth.
    I look towards society with longing eyes, all the while sabotaging myself along the way.
    I love people and carry no resentment towards anyone, even if I am the subject of their abuse. I love people and long to connect. I have an awfull mechanism which dissallows it.
    Iv sought professional help, only to be sent on my way with a "you don't need to be here".
    I need some tools, as Im withdrawing further with time.
    Screaming on the inside.
    Checking out dssosiative now.

    I believe you are getting in touch with your emotions. It's okay, it happens. Emotions don't have to be rational. You feel what you feel. There is nothing wrong with what you feel. Your emotions are a part of you.

    Experiencing our inferior (or even shadow) functions can be very scary. Especially if you've been avoiding it for years. I think you should perhaps embrace it more. I notice this tends to happen during mid-life transitions. I would breath through this experience and allow it to happen.

    I really want stress the necessity for taking full low breaths when you are feeling this. I believe you are on the cusp of having anxiety/panic attacks. Breath in counting to 3 and breath out counting to six, etc. This will prevent you from going into a full blown attack. If you want to feel like you are not alone or want to go to a nice web site to help you breath, I suggest going to the Universal Breathing Room Do As One

    When you are experiencing these emotions ground yourself in the reality that these are simply "emotions" and that they will pass. They are not concrete reality, you are okay and you are safe. Keep breathing, slowly. It's okay to feel.

    If it gets too scary, always call a friend, therapist, family member you trust, or just blog through your emotions on this website. If you can, right now would be a good time to start some counseling. You can have someone there to support you through these emotions and help guide you a bit. Take care.

    I have dissociative amnesia. I never considered it to be a bad thing, though. My mind simply blacks out, and shuts off my ability to recall terrible things, that have happened to me, or terrible things, that I've done. I do believe these are memories, that I'd rather never recall. I've experienced some dissociation from reality, in other ways, as well. That's actually fairly creepy feeling. It's like walking in a dream. Nothing seems or feels real. In some of those states, it's like handing over control to someone else, who does the terrible things. I come back to, and the shit's all like a bad dream.

    Get some exercise

    I agree exercise or talking a walk is good. Not knowing you but, reading your comments it sounds like you are overloaded. You need a day or two and recharge. Release that stress go camping, fishing, or something. Take time to smell the roses.

    You actually write quite poetically, Noosabar. And I really empathise.

    Do you relate to this a little as well?

    ISTP/INFJ: Ti/Ni or Ni/Ti--Schizoid Personality Disorder. These types are socially incompetent for lack of trying, because they see little to no value in significant interaction with others. They live in their own abstract worlds, constantly second-guessing themselves as Ti poses a framework for a problem and Ni shoots it down as too definitionally precise. Without any real external input, these two functions will dream up all sorts of elaborate systems and implications for them, only to repeat their own self-defeating behavior, never bothering to emphasize putting any of its intense ideas into practice. Frequent disregard for rules, laws and other forms of behavioral standards is common, as no function provides any significant sense of external influence. If Se/Fe were doing its job, the user would recognize the value of connecting with others and of paying attention to their needs, preferences, habits and appearances.
    How'd your research into dissociative disorders go?

    I brought it up, because I have encountered derealisation in the past (particularly when I self isolate) and it can be unsettling being in a "dream state". Perhaps it's not what you're experiencing, but I have seen other people become very distressed by severe disassociation.

    This is a good point.

    I just wanted to add that I do have a dissociative disorder. My above advice were the tools given to me to handle my episodes. Breathing and relaxation techniques are essential for those of us who dissociate. It's very important to "ground" ourselves.

    Also, what may have caused the episode in the original OP was a "trigger". OR, it could have been brought on simply because he was in a newer safer place in his life where he was finally free to express his emotions. Either way, I still think therapy would be the best thing. I also recommend yoga. But just be prepared to have more emotions. They have to come out eventually.

    I think I'm going to go get someone to come here on this thread.

    Wow, Nova.. I'm a bit blown away by those two posts, as I relate to them very strongly. Where did those come from?

    Also, Noosa, what has helped me before is getting back into a routine. Its hard to make that conscious decision (illustrated in Novas previous posts, why) but you need to really give yourself that push. Rather than just keep drifting, with these thoughts, give yourself some structure and engage your S more. It sounds simple, but those who mentioned exercise are absolutely correct. It can release some endorphins in your brain to give you the will to swing to the next branch.. keep on going.
