I don’t remember my trauma.

A lot of people ask me, “Well, then how do you even know it happened?”

1. There have always been signs. Always.

2. I have some very distinct triggers.

3. I’ve been having nightmares and flashbacks for some time now.

4. I had a remarkable moment of clarity.

How do I help myself heal?
