I made this YouTube video called "2 Minute Memoir" in order to briefly share my story as well as help others in the process. I hope you find healing and support in it, you are not alone in your struggle, and I know now in my heart that there is light after the dark.
I posted my new video to YouTube, as well as here in the WebMD community as a new discussion. It is called "2 Minute Music Lesson." I hope you enjoy watching it, and I wish you all the serenity in life that you deserve! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NxwZvkgdr4
Thank you for the tip. It is difficult to talk about but it absolutely makes me feel better and stronger because I am ready to do so. Please of course disregard my posts here if you are particularly triggered. However, I am posting a cool new video to my YouTube channel today, and I will post it to this discussion for those who do wish to watch and feel better with my music.
It will be found here as well, later today, and you can subscribe to my channel to get updates more quickly if you would like and feel comfortable doing so:
Thank you so much everyone for the supportive feedback! I appreciate that my video is helping others, while helping me in the process. I will continue posting videos to http://www.youtube.com/user/jfanuko and you can check in and subscribe to my channel for updates. I will definitely post new videos to this WebMD community as I continually make them.
I definitely understand the frustration with certain compliments: it especially happens for me when a male, particularly ones I may not know, call me "Bella" or "Beautiful". Part of me finds it sweet, and part of me finds it creepy, as if there are ulterior motives behind their choosing to say those things out loud.
Loud sounds are "on an off" for me. Sometimes loud music helps me, but loud chatter, for instance, by my family while watching some TV show last night sent me moving into another room to briefly focus in quiet. I think many of you make a good point that sometimes it can be a sensory overload.View Thread
