I've been doing some research lately into the affects of abusive childhoods and the relation to illness in adulthood. By abusive, I don't necessarily mean sexual or physical abuse but in the more wider sense. Neglect, absent parents , emotional or verbal.
I wondered if any of you would be interested in sharing your experiences with me.
I'd also be interested to hear from those who had good , happy and secure childhoods and how they think this impacts on how they deal with illness as adults .
If you'd like to talk privately rather than on the boards please feel free to pm me on here or pm me an e-mail address and I'll contact you.
