Hey, I wanted to ask if you need to be abused in order to have trauma?
abuse definitely isn鈥檛 the only sort of trauma. on platforms like tumblr, there鈥檚 often some conflation between trauma and abuse as it鈥檚 a common trauma but by no means is it the only one. this resource from the charity mind talks more about what trauma is- slight tw for it as there are some specific examples/personal testimonies

You鈥檙e not actually any less worthy of love or of being liked when you鈥檙e symptomatic or extremely mentally unwell than when you鈥檙e not.
You may not light up as much or be as animated and outgoing, you may not have the energy to look your best, to make art, to do the things you love, or to practise your best hygiene habits. You may not feel like you.
You may not feel like a lot of the things that make you the best you or the version of you that you like the most exist when your mental health is at its lowest. It takes a lot of energy to just exist sometimes when you鈥檙e not doing well.
I promise no matter how unwell you are or not, you are still just as worthy of being loved.聽
No matter the state of your mental health, your worth doesn鈥檛 change.

I actually don't recall ever seeing a positivity post for ppl w ongoing amnesia caused by trauma disorders. I'm not talking just repressed childhood memories, I mean perpetual long-term memory loss. I mean continuing to forget non-traumatic things that happened or ppl you knew a few years or even months ago. I mean struggling to retain any information you're learning if you don't constantly go over the same material over and over again, and losing it all once you stop repeating it
If you have amnesia like me, you matter. We navigate the world a bit differently but that's okay. Just bc our brains are broken doesn't mean we can't live happy and fulfilling lives. Be patient w yourself when learning new things. Surround yourself w compassionate ppl who love to tell you stories abt past exploits you may have forgotten. Also, hey, who else gets to watch a movie for the first time every time? Above all be kind to yourself.

it鈥檚 okay if trauma has made you angry. your subconscious reaction is to protect yourself, and sometimes this is how it鈥檚 expressed: it doesn鈥檛 make you a bad person

You won鈥檛 be sad forever.
Someday, you鈥檒l feel the sun shining a little brighter, and your smile will linger for just a little bit longer. You鈥檒l feel your days getting better and better, and your demons getting smaller and smaller.
You鈥檒l feel at peace. And that alone is worth keeping going.

All disabled people are amazing and deserve to live their lives without prejudice, unsolicited questions/advice, and invasions physical or social boundaries.
We are not less human and deserve the same respect and courtesy as abled people. Our worth is not dependent on our productivity, methods of communication, or the way we look.
We deserve to live happy, safe, and fulfilling lives.

there is no level of 鈥榖ad鈥 you have to reach before you can recover, no trauma that is too small to matter or too big to recover from

one of the key points of trauma recovery is learning to let go the idea of getting back to聽鈥渨ho i was before鈥. your trauma has shaped you and that鈥檚 okay. recovery is learning how to live with what happened rather than getting rid of it, even if that feels impossible at the moment

if your teenage or childhood years were robbed from you due to trauma or abuse, i want you to know it鈥檚 not too late to experience that childish happiness. it鈥檚 not too late to enjoy life, have fun and gain yourself back.

feeling like you caused your trauma is your brain trying to cope with an event that had so much impact on you. it's not true. trauma isn't your fault

this looks like a good resource <3
Spaces for Trauma Survivors
I currently run two.聽
The first one is a forum聽that you can click for here.聽 You will have to register, and wait for me to accept you (to make sure the space seems safe). Please send me a brief message that even just says聽鈥淗i, I am not a troll or spam bot鈥 so that I feel more comfortable doing so.聽
The second is a discord. I will not post the discord link publicly, so you will need to message me on my main @aprilthegayqueen for that one. This is to keep the space safe and secure!
There are separate trauma sections on either so you don鈥檛 have to talk about trauma. It is an option, but a lot of people choose to talk in general chat and avoid trauma talk some days!聽
Overall, the communities have been created to support each other, have a safe space to talk, and make friends.聽

You don't need to tell people all about your trauma in order for them to respect your triggers.
You don't need to disclose why something bothers you or hurts you for someone to respect it.
People should just respect that something hurts you without demanding or expecting to know more.
Your trauma is your own personal story that you have control over whether or not you decide to share.
It's personal and no one else is entitled to it.
Your triggers, however, hurt you and make your life painful and difficult and so it's necessary that people respect them and are mindful of them.
