    The part you wrote about “feeling little” is the very worst thing for me because I hate the intense feelings of vulnerability and helplessness that accompany it! It also makes me feel so abnormal because no one talks about it and it is shameful to be an adult and yet on occasion to feel like a helpless toddler wanting to be held and protected by a safe mommy.
    It even SOUNDS insane and LOOKS insane as I type these words!
    Fortunately, I understand logically that it is due to early childhood trauma but at the time, of course, logic is no where to be found.
