I feel much better today, friends! Thanks for sticking with me when my brain goes pleh.


It’s funny–I put lots of outfits together, and take lots of pictures of myself, and edit all those pictures–but most of the time I still feel a degree of separation between “me” and the person in all those outfits in all those photos.


I think this is largely because I don’t feel a strong mind-body connection in real life. There are moments when the two come together–riding my bike, snuggling up in a warm bed–but the “me” that thinks these words usually feels completely separate from the “me” that’s actually firing signals to type the letters out. I’m a little too brain-fried to properly explore the whys of this, but it’s been on my mind.

Do you inhabit your body strongly? What makes you feel connected?

  1. I understand what you’re talking about! My thing is that my body doesn’t feel like the one I’m used to. Comes with reaching my forties, I suppose. My brain thinks I should be buzzing about, doing all the fun stuff and wearing all the fun styles and cute shoes that I did 20 years ago….but my middle-aged body disagrees.

  2. I don’t inhabit my body very strongly either. (I love that turn of phrase.) If I’m not consciously thinking about it, or uncomfortable, I have a hard time recognizing the boundaries of my body, a disconnect of sorts. Due to medications, this happens to several epileptics, but it’s happened to me my whole life.
