This is not just a trauma response in our nervous system, as if that weren"t enough. This is an echo call to our child parts, an adult parallel and equivalent to our internal child experience.
As has been true throughout this time, we are having both a shared human experience, and dealing with factors and realities unique to our lifestyle, background, family structure, and emotional make up. Your child is different than my child. But we both have those little ones living inside that at some point had to adapt to cope with a world that wasn"t safe, that didn"t meet our needs, that abandoned us in our distress, that was too much to make sense of in a child mind, that we couldn"t fix or fight or run away from, that left us feeling powerless, inadequate, and alone.

Sadness and grief for what we are losing that is slipping by right before our eyes that we feel in our bodies more than we can name with our minds.
Confined to our homes.
Trust in what was supposed to keep us safe fading.
Trust in the world as a safe place evaporating.
Our loved ones, our supports emotionally challenged to care for us as they experience their own instability and struggle.
The last time any of us experienced all these things at once for a prolonged period of time was as children.
