@TruthPathing Hi Sue, how are you? As an empath, I have been feeling the heaviness of the universe lately, so has our dog. We are both getting a reiki treatment tomorrow from my master teacher. #ptsdchat
Sue Wood @TruthPathing
It’s been a challenging week in different ways. We’ve seen abuse and neglect in various happenings this week #ptsdchat What is the difference between abuse and neglect?

@holisticff What we are hearing and experiencing is incredibly troubling. Glad you are putting self-care to use for both of you! #ptsdchat

@TruthPathing All you have to do is pay attention to social media to see the abuse and neglect people are heaping on each other since the pandemic has ramped up. Abuse and neglect are almost the same thing. Abuse is more overt and physical. Neglect is less direct. #ptsdchat

Today, I heard that someone pretending to help an elderly lady load her groceries stole some ofvyhem. Abusive, for sure. The store replenished for her what was stolen. #ptsdchat

I may differ a little on A vs N def. My take: Neglect is withholding the care / nurturing necessary within a relationship. Abuse is mistreatment of another person. No preexisting relationship is required. #PTSDChat

Neglect primarily affects qualities that are still in the main stages of development. Abuse damages existing qualities. #PTSDChat
Tim Grutzius @holisticff
@TruthPathing You are correct my friend. When we get deep into the care of others, we tend to neglect caring for ourselves. #ptsdchat
Tim Grutzius @holisticff
@bannedtweet Can you explain more about qualities? #ptsdchat
Sue Wood @TruthPathing
@holisticff Remember advertising starting to tell us we were worth it, to take time for ourselves (implying regardless of who gets hurt or what was left undone)? I think that was part of the turning point. “I/me/mine” & no one else matters. We used 2 sacrifice 4 the good of others. #ptsdchat

@bannedtweet @holisticff I have seen patterns like this. #ptsdchat
bannedtweet @bannedtweet
@TruthPathing @holisticff There are things that can bridge the gap. Shock can do it at a steep cost. Some folks opt to mimic a group of behaviors, that together look like functionality. ADHD meds amp up the reward system which provides more resources to bridge the gap. 1/ #PTSDChat
Sue Wood @TruthPathing
@bannedtweet @holisticff Boredom and maybe some level of hopelessness. #ptsdchat Could it be that we don’t realize we are neglecting/abusing in these ways. It all seems like it could sometimes be subtle, especially if the person is in a group.

I think subtly different methods are needed to work on neglect damage vs abuse damage. With neglect, systems are unformed. To some degree, one picks up where the parent left off. Abuse damage leave broken pieces all over. I imagine they tend to be sensitive. #PTSDChat
