    How do I get to the point of, "So it's true. Now what?"

    'Cause sometimes when a fear might actually true, I've sometimes gotten to the point of acceptance. This time, I couldn't exactly do that, but I wish I could. BTW, we're dealing here with a fear which is probably true anyway, but about which I probably shouldn't care about this much.

    A little bit of information beforehand; I do already dissociate and I know what being numb feels like. I'm trying at this point to understand if I'm dissociating right now or if I'm emotionally numb or detached and mayhaps ways to go about dealing with/fixing it.
