    That's a good technique. Speaking of tingling, sometimes when I sit at a computer I get a tingling nerve sensation across the back of my neck. What could be causing that?

    What is preventing you from putting more energy out in the world?

    My INTP husband is the same way. It's funny sometimes. It also makes him perpetually rumpled, which is endearing to someone who has a Columbo fetish.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Not aware like that is is out of wack? or that it just disappears completely for a while?

    I can relate to it being out of wack.... tend to have it all-or-nothing ("no I actually didn't realize it was only 60 degrees in the room" "I'm so cold! Someone get me blanket NAO!") Unfortunately lately it has been more overawareness.

    But I'm not too sure why it would just not be there at all. Maybe too much internal focus? Dissociation-ishness?

    Not sure where to work from without some examples...

    Lack of bodily awareness can lead to anything from a floating sensation to complete disassociation (out of body experiences). Pain forces me to focus more on my body, as with last week when I hurt my lower back and had to think before making any move that involved those back muscles. Since I now have a sit-down job, I made myself understand that sitting made my back muscles tighten up. But it was a couple more days before I started forcing myself to stand up more at work, and to walk around during breaks in order to loosen up those sore muscles. This helped the healing process along.

    Living is very painful for me. It's almost as if my body is trying to tell me something.

    - I don't experience changes in how I feel based on certain foods like a lot of people. Like, I don't notice caffeine having any effect either when I have it or don't. I don't understand when people stay away from certain foods because of how they might make them feel, like "Oh X food makes me gassy" or "X food makes me want a nap".
    I'm sometimes like this regarding temperature.

    I used to be more like this regarding food. I have developed more of an awareness- there are foods that seem to make me tired or make me stomach feel heavy. What's less obvious is how food affects me emotionally- I haven't really taken much notice. I know that caffeine will make me feel more energetic for awhile but that's about it.
