  • Thank you so much for writing this. I’ve long been a recipient of mental-health services, and, some time ago, stopped believing that I could rely solely on others to guide me towards what I call simply “healing”, and have been trying to learn enough to help myself – a practice, that, of course, the profession frowns on, but then, they have a vested financial interest in the matter…

    What you’ve written here is the first piece I’ve seen anywhere about trauma and dissociation that is in-touch with reality. It’s also incredibly valuable, because it’s written from the perspective of an insider to medicine. I expect to wind up referring to it often as a translation dictionary between my experience and the official explanations. 🙂

    This is also my first visit to this site, where I hope to become a regular. I did read the posting policy, and I recognize that simply praising an article for its merits may not be sufficiently constructive by its standards. If so, let me know.

    Thanks again!
