Isolation: ptsd symptom

Exploring emotions

On one hand, I am sensitive, extremely sensitive to criticism, ridicule, and humiliation.

Contrast that sensitivity to the numbness of not feeling attachment, closeness, awareness of my own body.

I do not experience or desire emotions normal people hold dear.

I have no memory of closeness, of warmth with others, or inside my body and mind.

Trust is foreign, immense fear surrounds the thought of trusting anyone.

avoiding people has become my way of surviving.

The pain of life is overwhelming at times.
