I am going to do more research on this one. I know it exists with BPD but I have no juicy factual info yet. Only what I experience.
By emotional consistency, I’m referring to being out of touch with specific mind sets when I’m not in it.
For example, when I’m in a rage and angry at someone i care for, I may know that my good feelings for them existed at some time (or do still exist) but I have no idea what those feelings felt like or why I ever felt them. I can’t get in touch with those thoughts and feelings and it’s like they aren’t a part of me and belonged to someone else.
I believe I have some object constancy issues as well but the emotions aspect is interesting to me. Is that repairable through DBT to the extent that I will be able to bring the two together? The good and bad sides? Or will I only be able to use skills to manage myself during those times until my brain reconnects back to the good side? 😦 IDK
