Greetings! I was adopted at 5 months old, into what was certainly a best-case scenario life. (I know that's not true for everyone.) What I'm realizing now as I work through the SEP on this site, as well as make use of the various recommended resources, is that even in the best-case scenario, since adoption is preceded by being relinquished, given up, and abandoned, attachment issues, along with perfectionism and fear, will likely follow, and TMS should be no surprise. So, for me, the attachment issues are going to be my focus. This was clarified for me last night while watching this video by Dr Gabor Mate: Perhaps you'll find it worthwhile. I know I did! Thanks for reading. Peace be with you!
