My apologies for the trouble with the links in yesterday’s important post
I think I have them all straightened out now. As I Googled myself around regarding the titles and topics represented by those links I found myself being awed for those of us severe infant-child abuse and trauma survivors who actually MOSTLY are able to function!
What a menu of terrible difficulties this area of study contains! I don’t believe there is ANYTHING more important for us as survivors to understand than the information is you will find at the end of these links.
That no professional EVER even MENTIONED how early severe trauma and neglect can change an infant-child’s physiological development is, to me, CRIMINAL!!!
There is NO, and I MEAN NO psychological or psychiatric ‘theory’ that can begin to remotely help us if it does not address the neurobiological CHANGES that happened to our growing and developing BODY on all of our levels as we survived our traumas!
The kinds of changes that are described in these articles presented in yesterday’s post are what happened to my mother, to my father — and most definitely happened to ME!
We CANNOT consider our healing as severe early abuse and trauma survivors without understanding the FACTS as these articles present them. THEORIES are of no use to us WHATSOEVER!
We have to educate ourselves with this critically important information. Any survivor who is seeing a therapist must determine if that person KNOWS this information. If they don’t, give them this actual link to my post of yesterday,
If your therapist will not listen to you about this critically important information, I would suggest that you find one that WILL! So-called ‘mental health treatment’ that does not operate for survivors from this informed foundation of information is no better than BLOODLETTING treatments for disease.
The Trauma Altered Development we endured changed our PHYSICAL body — the same one we have to live within for the rest of our life. Any treatment for a ‘physical problem’ that is not based on facts is useless!!
