I’ve become very adverse to “charge” & “discharge” in #somatic language b/c of the misappropriation by the #trauma workshops merchants

But this is what it means 👇🏼
“If we speak of charge and discharge in Body Psychotherapy we refer to changing the arousal dimension of the core affect. Working with charge and discharge is independent of the emotional category that we awaken or calm by provoking or soothing arousal.” - Ulfried Geuter and……
In other words …


as a “somatic experience” (ignore the brand)

is a kinesthetic, experiential occurrence that impacts how bodies animate, express, dampen, numb, dissociate, etc

Another point on #differentiation esp as it relates to #collaboration

quick 🧵👇🏼
2/ when a person identifies themselves through #concepts they prize, hoard & claim them “as theirs”

and will sometimes “die for them”

b/c of the mechanism of identification is #conceptual
with #somatic #differentiation comes an internal network of self-experience that gives one access to a felt sense of #emergence

where harmonies, symphonies, waves, charges, compressions, tightens

of #experience occur

my #somatic mentors insisted on two things that I am still engaged with & refining (forever) …

1/ I speak from my own direct experience, not through concepts

2/ I express my own words, and not use theirs or “pretend through their form”

to me this invites #differentiation
in other words … understanding words, even having mastery of the concepts that words describe

amounts to “very little value” from the standpoint of one’s own emergence

this is a provocative concept

esp to thinking minds (as I have)
thinking mind says “I know about this stuff … let me list off the concepts and details with the familiar words …”

embodiment says ???

(embodiment speaks without words)

a bit more about #somatic #internalization
... particularly my "housed in the body" phrasing 👇
I know there is concern with "stored emotions in the body" language

I share that concern

but let's unpack what this means ...
my POV

the impact & expression of emotion is #embodied

there is simply no other way to experience #emotion

there is wide, wide diversity in each individual's expression and experience of #emotion

Ever wondered if and how #recombination of #retroelements contributes to #somatic #mosaicism? Read about it in our new pre-print:

Non-allelic homologous recombination of Alu and LINE-1 elements generates somatic complexity in human genomes.…
1/ Background: pathogenic non-allelic homologous recombination (NAHR) of Alu and LINE-1 has been found in several genomic disorders and #cancer types. We thought this could be just the tip of the iceberg of a physiological recombinogenic activity of retroelements.
2/ The excellent Martin Frith developed a fresh pipeline to identify non-allelic homologous recombination (NAHR) in short and long-reads libraries: 🦖TE-reX🦖. It smartly focuses on split reads that join repeat elements at homologous positions.

Nice @FrontPediatrics paper providing guidance for docs and #pwME in the diagnosis and management of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome #MECFS

#MedEd #MedTwitter #chronicillness #chronicpain #SickNotTired…
2. #MECFS is commonly misdiagnosed as a #somatic disorder

#pwME "..have been humiliated or dismissed by other providers, so [doctors] will need to be.. nonjudgmental.. & acknowledge that #MECFS is not a #psychological condition but a real illness"…
3. #MECFS symptoms can be diverse, complex, fluctuate and overlap with many other conditions making the diagnosis difficult

This @FrontPediatrics paper lists 33 (!) co-morbidities commonly associated with #MECFS
