Thread....1. If like me you have had a diagnosis of CPTSD then please don’t be alarmed if any of those symptoms return or are heightened during this period of uncertainty especially hyper vigilance as we face the gauntlet of leaving the house to exercise or food shopping for
2. essential items, if the feelings of loneliness are heightened, if you are feeling fearful and can’t explain why, if your past coping mechanisms have returned,if your sleep is disturbed, if your appetite has changed, if you feel a sense of foreboding,if your having vivid dreams
3. If you are emotional, if you feel angry, if your feeling profound sadness, if you feel your security has been ripped from underneath you....For many of us,some, or all, of these things are completely normal reactions to abnormal circumstances, don’t be afraid to voice it as

THREAD. So I went to my local NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) group meeting tonight. TWO things annoyed me. (1) We had to pledge allegiance to the medical model, implying participants must denounce any version of a social model or combined social-medical model. /1
(2) Reinforcing (1), the moderators jumped all over me when I mentioned a medication name. Apparently, there is an “unwritten rule” that people are not allowed to talk about any medications that they’re on by name. Only circumlocutions are allowed. /2
What was the reason given for (2)? Supposedly, “they” don’t want people to take questions back to their doctors about their medications or treatments, or heaven forbid to not take a medication. /3

After getting out of a domestically violent relationship and a fundamentalist, cult-like religion within a few months of each other, I felt a sense of freedom that I had never felt before.
I was under the impression, initially, that leaving these relationships was all that I needed to do in order to embrace a new life. In reality, leaving was obviously important, but only the first step.

In what is sort of a continuation of yesterday, but a not always directly related to yesterday track, #NAAM day 15 is another dive into where adoption intersects mental health.
For starters, there is some crossover from mental health related diagnoses and genetic predispositions.

There are also mental health diagnoses that occur that are unrelated to a genetic predisposition, and are at times, related to adoption.
There are also situations where adoption itself is a barrier to mental health treatment, as mental health professionals are not always prepared to look into adoption sans positive adoption language.

1/ Look what arrived by mail today. Watch for a ritual burning at the end of this thread.

A thread tweeting quotes from "The Power of a Whisper" (TPOAW), by unrepentant sexual predator, bully, and con-man Bill Hybels, who is still being protected by @GLNsummit & @WillowCreekCC
@GLNsummit @WillowCreekCC 2/ Dedication Page: "To @DickDeVos & Betsy, & Ron & Sharon VanderPol--Only on the other side will the four of you know how much your friendship & support have meant to the Hybels family & to the global Willow family"

~Bill Hybels, "The Power of a Whisper", 2010
3/ I note that @glnsummit board chairman billionaire Dick Devos, to whom Bill dedicated this book, has overseen Global Leadership Network's ongoing cover-up of Bill Hybels' sexual crimes since 2014.

THIS is the main reason it’s so damaging when adoption narratives hold up sweet “success stories” of those “resilient” kids who seem so well-adjusted. Trauma for #adoptees often manifests in ways that LOOK like positives, but are deeply damaging to us below the surface. (Thread)
(In my case I admit this was compounded by the neglect & abuse I experienced before my adoption, and the added trauma I experienced later in life.)

So many of the qualities people compliment in me the most? They were developed specifically as survival responses to trauma.
“Articulate.” “Gifted.” “Bright.” “Insightful.” “High Achiever” “Empathetic.” “Giving.” “Talented performer.” “Wise/mature beyond her years.” “Resilient.”

It’s uncomfortable for me to even appear to self-praise, but these are all specific things I’ve had said about me a lot.

One of the biggest myths about childhood trauma is that those who are abused grow up to abuse. While we can't ignore that some do struggle to break the cycle of learned violence, survivors are far more likely to be re-victimized than ever harm another.

Most run on compassion.
We need to take more time acknowledging the strength AND warmth of these resilient survivors; the gift they have to see the needs of the world and lend empathic solutions.
Much of the hard, humanitarian work you see around you is led by them - even if you had no idea.

It's survivors of significant adversity, flooded w/ empathy, driven to spare others of the suffering they endured for far too long.
