Do you consider yourself to live a 'normal' life are does that seem an alien concept to you?
I would consider myself to get by normally, however, carrying a dark cloud around that can vary in size anytime

Cant help myself but Normal is just a setting on the washing machine. I live a fairly typical suburban life. with a few twists, but I fit in pretty well.

No, I'm pretty much as far from normal as you can get. I try to wear that as a badge of pride, but sometimes it is tough.

I think what you said about "fit in pretty well" is a pretty good one. I am noticeably different from most in terms of schedule I keep, things I spend my time on, thinks I think about, how I talk about things, even how I look. Not in any way someone who fits in with society.

I constantly look at, ignore and function through normal. One persons normal is another persons lunacy.

Lets just live and be happy and not have to fit into other peoples definitions of something so ambiguous as "normal".

when I first came here I told nearly everyone I talked to that normal had been my goal all my life. I just wanted to be like everyone else. and I dont know how many times I heard this comment."normal is just a setting on the dryer" and they were right. normal is different for every person, each experience we have had ,good or bad changes what normal might be for us. the others,the untouched have no idea of what it takes a survivor to process and so we can feel on the outside at times. but among the other survivors we hear " yea I get that, or I used to do that all the time!" that was a miracle for me when I heard it. I was NOT insane or going insane, I was not too weird,odd, or whatever. I was a SURVIVOR and my definition of what is typical is much different then those who have not had the experiences. not bad, and not better, just different. I hope that you can feel better soon man
