When you bounce from hypervigilant to absent - dissociated and disconnected.
You feel like a *different* person each moment. That sense of cohesion + continuity is lost.
There are no words to describe how *broken* + *fragmented* you feel.
The only constant is the heavy painful toxic shame + guilt. We carry around 24/7.
You feel alien + fundamentally different to others.
Are your neurons firing way fast and get stuck on toxic inner turmoil? Often you escape by dissociating.... I worked out some strategies to get those neurons dancing in uniform with my true potential and authentic self.
I worked wicked hard to find meaning & purpose in life again, and feeling worthy of having healthy, nurturing & caring people in my life. Others don't get just how much work is involved, but you do...
You've tried the lonely dance like myself. Let's tackle this together. Your life is not over yet. You're worthy of a better future.
My cPTSD brain and I are a little crazy about research. The sciency stuff perfectly combined with a Piccolo (coffee). Currently a chocolate loving PhD student.
Hope they serve you well :)

"Tanja's videos are so accessible! Friendly, yet informative and based on research. In a world where affordable and accessible mental health advice is not always readily available, they provide helpful information. In addition, there is a Facebook support group and a website for extra help and information.
Tanja shares things that she has found helpful on her own journey and it's great information for anyone affected by interpersonal trauma."
"Living with CPTSD is a challenge and one that can leave you feeling like you have to battle the condition alone. Not knowing anybody else that struggled with similar symptoms and issues lead me to the Internet for information about the condition. It was there that I found Tanja’s Facebook group and YouTube information videos.
I really value these connections because I can connect with others in a safe environment and not feel so isolated.
Tanja’s dedication in posting thoughts,relaxing photos and encouraging statements are brilliant through them I am reminded about things like self compassion, gratitude and each step forward no matter how small is progress and connect on many other issues, some I’m aware of, and others I have to think about.
The YouTube videos give me connection on a more personal level and relief that I’m not alone in dealing with the issues that arise in my daily journey. I am very thankful for her dedication to help others and her willingness to share her journey along the way."
