My mother and ex partner both have RSD and I think I may have it but in a milder form. My first question is I notice they both use attack as the best form of defence. In that if you get anywhere close to criticing them, they’ll project blame onto you. Also, when stressed they both tend to criticing everything as if to say “don’t start on me”. Can anyone relate to that ? Ironically that has helped me deal with my RSD, as I have had no option but to find ways to deal with such comments. So I discount those from my mum, but get deeply cut by ones from anyone else.
Also what things help ? What should we all be doing to cope with it better ?
