Can a mind become gifted after injury? TW*
« on: November 09, 2018, 05:20:41 AM »
When I was young I could remember details that most would not care for - too many details. I played alone mostly in the woods by the house in a big city — with made up kingdoms in the trees I climbed. I learn through touch and movement. Over the years, it was external stimuli that injured me repeatedly in the family unit and from public interaction (teacher abuse and police harassment at eight years) I coped, as kids do - found hacks and lived on.

I am unsure if the way I processed information was innate or an outcome from resolving abuse, maybe both. But something funny happened and I didn’t realize it till I was much older — I can recognize patterns in language and respond accordingly but the conscious part of my brain doesnt pick it up till a bit later, I thought this was related to emotional dysregulation (a cPTSD symptom) but now I think it falls on the Autism Spectrum

does anyone else have this problem?

With all that written, did I put this in the wrong forum?

This problem.

I can only reapond as per my experiences. I have had the opportunity to meet a psychiatrist who shared with me his insights. He said whilst most people see emotions as a rainbow of 6-7 colours, I could see 10+. And I could also see them before the person themselves understood that was what they are feeling.

It is a “symptom” of the abuse that we have suffered. We have learned to interpret certain actions, expressions, tones of voice. We are sensitive and interpretive beyond any measure.

Right down to the other individuals involved ready to deny their true experiences.
