Hello, I just learnt about this yesterday and I have cried so much. For years I have called this ‘the thing’ and I thought it was just me. I can’t begin to tell about the shame and all the harm it’s done me. I am just shook.
I’m frightened for the future, but I’m also ridiculously relieved to even know it’s got a bloody name. I’m relieved that the world might not be as frightening as I’ve been telling myself.
I would like to make friends with other people with this condition. It’s been a wild ride. I wrote a shitload of it down along the way too. Not about the alternate places, just about how it’s played out in my life. It’s controlled everything. Damn. I’m in bits. Thank you, sorry, it’s good to meet you. I’m not a joiner (feeds into the madness) but I had to join this.
