I am by no means an expert of the lit but I have read a few things on cptsd ptsd and general development stuff. So I know the general story of the theory. However I have never told my T any of this stuff and I am not so sure why... I asked her to lend me a book and then we mentioned it and talked about it but she just went on on one and in my head I am know this. I know I know I know. I managed to say oh I studied ptsd for a course and then she started talking about cptsd and it really annoyed me. I have a strong aversion to being told something I already know. We are starting to get in to parts work and I can see her trying to introduce me to the idea of talking to different elements of myself or parts and I found it difficult because I regress in age when that stuff comes up but then in my head I am like yes I get it and what you are proposing isn't wacky it makes sense. But of course she thinks I dont know about this stuff.
