    I need help. I think the freeze part has taken over and there’s nothing left of me. Everyone seems to be mad at me. I find no help. Only further traumatization within mental health and medical professionals.

    I’m pleased to hear please/appease, collapse, freeze, etc mentioned as they’re most common auto responses. When I finally reported to police they said “ Fight or flight?! So you just sat there! As if. You’re lying”. they had no trauma response training at all. And all victims had dissociative amnesia so the abuser never went to trial as recovered memory wasn’t believed. This new research on dissociation is great. And obvious!
