(we/us they/them pronouns) We are very sensitive. If you communicate with us, please try to use compassion; we will try to use compassion when we communicate with you.

Trauma and dissociation make focus a particular challenge for us. Nature can be helpful.

When we are out in nature, we try to use our senses to let ourself know it is the present, that we are safe now. It takes a balancing act to not focus too keenly on the senses and tip us into hypervigilance and panic. When we can keep ourself alert but not scared, we can sometimes access our knowledge to identify birds and other organisms.
