MMfan, I agree, my tone of voice is very important. For the youngest alter, whom I guess to be 5 or 6, occasionally he can't switch from that alter if I don't control my voice.

Thanks for this input because it lets me know my experience is not unique.

There is a book: The Peter Pan Syndrome. I've never read it but I perused it quickly in a local store.

It's talking about men who never grow up. I need to look at it again to see if it's relevant to this discussion.

There's a lot of discussion in MS about 'inner child' stuff. I'm still not sure if that's the same as a dissociated inner child.

I also question if "inner child" is the same as dissociated.

Thanks Puffer,
