Thank you, Sheta.
Update: I have had a virtual doctor appointment and am being sent to the right specialists. Writing this through helped me to push forward and to seek the appropriate care.
It’s strange. Yes, I can articulate this issue clearly, but concise expression doesn’t diminish the emotional wallop I suffer if nothing is found. That is a significant triggering event for me.
Severe emotional neglect leaves pretty significant scars and makes it very difficult to self advocate, thus the reason for the article on the subsequent outcome that occurs after years of emotional abuse.
Thank you for your thoughtful comment:). All the best — Kerry
