Just Me: A Series of Reflections on Trauma, Motherhood, and Psychiatry | Chaya Grossberg

Before I learned about mental illness, diagnosis, stigma, trauma, pain body, universal pain, eugenics, state hospitals, dungeons, race, gender, the ego, Salem witch trials, witch doctors, demons, psychotropic drugs, crisis, politics, or recovery, I was just me.
I was born in Jamaica, West Indies and I spent many days in the sun, rolling down hills, walking to school barefoot, walking to church on Sundays dressed up, playing in streams, and catching butterflies. I was called a quiet child; people spoke about me like I wasn’t there and sometimes cooed at me because they said I was always smiling. One thing I know for sure was that I was always observing, wondering, and learning.
