From Coping with Trauma Related dissociation.

.

.
” While the part of the personality that copes with daily life is avoidant, at least one other and usually more than o e other part remain stuck in traumatic memories and think, feel, and behave as though these events are still happening (at least to a degree) or about to happen again.
.
.
These parts are usually stuck in repeating behaviors that are protective during threat, even when they are not appropriate.
.
.
For example, some parts fight to protect even when you do not need such protection in the present, others want to avoid or run away even though you are safe, some freeze in fear, and others completely collapse.
.
.
These parts are often highly emotional, not very rational, limited in their thinking and perceptions, not oriented to the present time, and are overwhelmed.
.
.
They primarily live in trauma time, that is, they continue to experience the traumatic past as the resent, and hold emotions, beliefs, sensations, and so forth that are related to traumatic experiences.”
