She felt (her emotions) invalid and unacceptable as if part or all of her was missing. She questioned her decisions. She felt constantly confused by her own behavior and the behavior of others. Her struggle’s to feel connected to the people she loves the most, to fit in, to belong. But instead got abused and more connected with feeling ashamed and unloved. Never praised and even when she said, I want to run away. Nobody cared.

Childhood emotional neglect is so subtle and unmemorable that she may have no awareness that anything was missing in her childhood. But that truth of the matter all those emotions that were neglected as a child showed up in her over-dosing and her mind fighting in a war she couldn’t bear no more.
