Hi!
I wanted to pop and say hello. Am new here, introduced by a very dear friend.

Will pop back for more pondering a lot I should think. Chose the name because often quite hypomanic and try to keep that spiral in control.

Suspect CPTSD is a part of my smorgasbord of brain things. I've started chatting to my father (lives abroad) recently and after good, revelatory therapy a few years back, the pieces ate clicking. I'm finding it hugely helpful to have these "answers"

Also, when the internet was new (yeah, I'm that old)... every time I looked stuff up... initially about dad, but also recognising myself... Things looked bleak. Personality disorders were hopeless cases, flawed and broken people. That's how I felt.

That's changed. I worked for years with yiubg children and could WATCH them building their defense mechanisms in real time. That was so sad... but so helpful. Recognising that process... in myself and, in turn, in my parents. What a cycle.

Anyway. Hi. Thanks for being here and I hope today is a kind day :)
