It feels very warm and fuzzy to read your experience which is so much like my own. It is A LOT to deal with, but I do also know and believe, as you said, that it really is a strength.
By the way, I edit for a publication called About Me Stories, and if you'd like, I'd love for you to write an introduction for yourself there. It's a great way to connect with the Medium community and find more like-minded writers. Just a thought. :) The link to the publication is here if you're interested (no pressure!). https://medium.com/about-me-stories/ Keep up the awesome writing!
