Watch “My Inner Critic is a Bitch! CPTSD & the Wonderful Gift My Narc Mom gave me” on YouTube

Did you know that a vicious inner critic is a distinguishing characteristic/trait of cptsd? This is my story.

I encourage you to tell your story. Share what happened to you, and let’s spread awareness about NPD and CPTSD and let’s help to end the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Watch “CPTSD Recovery – Why Am I Med-Free? Why Do I Share My Low Moments?” on YouTube

Why am I med-free? Why do I share my lowest moments?

It is important to not compare our journey with other survivors. We are all on our own unique journey. Some of us were scapegoats, some of us were golden children, some of us were lost children, some of us played all of these roles at some point in our lives, dependent on our narcissistic mother’s whims. What you went through was not your fault. 

I share my low moments so I can process what I’m going through, and to help those that are feeling the same way to feel like they aren’t the only one. 

I take my mental health VERY seriously. 

Thanks for watching.

Watch “Taking a Walk in Nature” on YouTube

Both physical activity and being in nature are known to have positive effects on our mental health. This is what I got up to this morning.

A walk up the other side of the mountain on an older, less maintained trail. Later, we released salmon fry at the fish hatchery with my son’s class. https://youtu.be/VGldoKUjJ7U
