    Hello, I'm beggining this journey.
    I'm argentine living in Spain, so, sorry for my English. Anyone speaks Spanish?
    I'm an 51 years old asperger woman with C-PTSD and TMS.
    I have sensory hypersensivity.
    I'm in the first day of this program.
    I don't remember feel safe ever, I grow up hiding my emotions, feelings and thoughts because I felt I need to please adults to survive.
    People is dangerous, a menace. I'm trying to not think that way but it is difficult.
    When there is someone with me I became hipervigilant, ready to fight or fly, scared. Takes me time to rationalise that the other person is not a menace and then I relax a little bit, but the damage is done. My nervous system is exhausted.

    Hi,

    Try this. It's a guided meditation on peace, in Spanish. Take care.

    Hello Seta. Sorry, I have no Spanish. It can be challenging to let go of emotional repression and hypervigilance when they have helped you survive for many years. I wouldn't be alive today if I hadn't hidden my emotions (even from myself) and remained on high alert as a child with many dangerous relatives and as an adult in a domestic abuse situation. I was the queen of hypervigilance and I couldn't let it go because the pay off had been so great. Now, I realize that that once dear friend has become a foe. Now, I will do just about anything to calm my mind and body.

    I really believe almost anyone can make progress with this approach. Maybe you can find Sarno or Schubiner books in Spanish translation. All the best....
