Hi Violette,

Thanks for your input. I always like hearing from you :)

I'm not sure. Aren't we both kinda saying the same thing in different ways? I think, esp after reading Pete Walker, that I do have c-ptsd. My condition is specifically abuse /neglect related. My
family was 'quite' dysfunctional (though no family ever truly wins that prize...).

I understand BPD as a spectrum disorder. And that, however
much my therapist(s) dissuade me, the
level of my distress (subjective) tells me something, as does the absence of a
sense of a reliable self or source of comfort. I think I disassociate (as
Solstice described to B2Chica in a thread), by spacing out, getting lost in
pain states. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck.... I feel that my case of c-ptsd has borderline features, placing it on a continuum.

You see, I did have trauma. It sounds
like a tiny-weeny, endless, water torture trauma of being alone for years and
years. Walker's article, just as Sigi mentioned, includes simple neglect--a relational vacuum as trauma to a
developing child. (Then there were later traumas, for an isolated, naive adolescent who leaves home usually runs into trouble.)
