Dresden von Saturnalia was raised by an emotionally inept military father & an absent mother (who died when Dresden was 18). Dresden, until recently, struggled VERY hard with stability, friendships, safety, and emotions. He's found deep healing in his journey and has joined me to share his story.
We also discuss:
Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) & Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD);
the ripple effects of healing;
rapid cycling of moods & shifting;
processing, venting and validating anger;
having FIERY emotions/passion;
AFAB & identifying androgyne;
collectively processing grief within community;
the grief of surviving;
no longer identifying with a diagnosis;
having basic safety-needs met;
compassion for self & challenging people;
becoming a tattoo artist;
check-ins & consent;
gratitude and survivor's guilt for healing;
and so much more.
