Topic: VIDEO CONFERENCE: How to Shake Your Invisibility?
When: Monday, October 3rd at 4 PM Pacific Time
I rarely have to explain to this group what it feels like to be invisible to our NeuroDiverse loved ones. With their lack of empathy, people on the Spectrum fail to send us signals that we are recognized, heard, affirmed, and loved. But after years or even a few short months with a NeuroDiverse person, the sense of invisibility is hard to shake, isn’t it?
Even when we are with friends who do affirm us, or even when we have accolades for our community or career accomplishments, we still feel invisible. We long to belong . . . to be understood . . . to be cared for . . . without doing anything except to BE.
This phenomenon of invisibility is about as hard to shake as other symptoms of PTSD. Remember that PTSD or OTRS (Ongoing Traumatic Relationship Syndrome) is a normal reaction to abnormal stressors. This is why our sense of invisibility is so hard to shake. It is our reaction to living with a lack of empathy for our very existence.
Let’s use this video conference to examine this problem. Knowledge is power, so with a deeper understanding of how we became invisible, we should be able to come back out into the Light and Love, where we are meant to be.
