SDAM huh? Symptomatically we’re very similar but I always wrote off my parlous memory as a combination of my anosmia meaning I didn’t make the same connections as other people, and dissociation, which is near ubiquitous in trans folk.
Still, we never know do we? We only have ‘our’ normal. There’s no objective metric for these things.
I’m glad you have developed coping strategies though and that you’re thriving.
Thanks for sharing, Oak.
