Thank you Penny. Yea the reason behind this is true that theres some trauma in the brain my endocrine suspected that causes the whole regulation difficult that brings to this triangle that my therapist addresses

“Another factor for trauma, behind shame & guilt is that the main cause I have histories of being invalidated that explains not having the sensation responding to body’s emotions/needs like this triangle. When my sensation is broken, all is hay-wired so I am processing trauma to hope I get the full triangle and I can regulate better. Meaning, I have been traumatised so much I can’t seem to express self correctly and express self for help, similar to what an autistic is going through.”
