Iv`e been reading quite a bout how childhood trauma & bullying can accelerate ageing, & this scares the life out of me because I had a terrible childhood. My father was in the navy, & my mother insisted that we went with him wherever he was posted. The result of this was that I was constantly being uprooted & had to keep changing schools. I fell behind other kids my age as a result, & was bullied for being stupid & never fitted in. I thought that all that was behind me now, but it seems that my parents cruelty indifference to my welfare could cause me to die earlier than I would have done. Is there a way that the damage could be reversed?
