Health of a Child Across a Lifetime Impacted by Childhood Trauma | Nadine Harris, TED Talk
Nadine Burke Harris, an American pediatrician, discusses the impact of Childhood trauma as we age and grow. She points out that childhood trauma isn’t something we can just get over and that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health, or even substance abuse, have tangible effects on the development of the brain.

Those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are said to be at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. This of course fits into the emotional link which I've discussed in my articles, such as Why do we get sick? | Our Psychological Foundation & Immune System and The Seven Primary...

Toller, I saw your previous message that you decided not to share in the end. It reminds me of my own situation.

Way back in August, 2011, I wrote this article on transients talking about my condition, which has a few names such as lazy eye, convergent squint and strabismus.

The day before I wrote that article, I suddenly realized I don't see the wold the same as most other people. I see in two dimensions, not three dimensions, because my eyes don't work together. I've been like this my entire life. I was born with the condition and had two operations to try and resolve it. (detaching and reattaching the muscles of the eye to straighten them)

This had a big impact on me growing up as my eyes were not straight and I would get teased.

I have options to try and resolve it (operations and botox injections are just temporary measures — not interested in them), but I just don't have the funds. For example, it's been reported that users of virtual reality headsets, with strabismus, have suddenly found their eyes work together and that they start seeing in 3D. I wrote about that in this article here (June, 2016) on transients.

In the first article I linked to, the book I mentioned, Fixing my Gaze by Susan Barry, covers my exact issue. She writes about how she discovered a method of curing this, with the help of an optometrist, and that one day she was driving down the road and suddenly started seeing in three dimensions, explaining what that was like. This is a new area for eye specialists as it's not the sort of thing that was able to be cured in the past.

Anyways, that reminded me a little bit about your post.

I lost my left eye completely, so I've only seen the world in 2D since I was five. Primary school wasn't a problem, young children are very accepting, but secondary school wasn't much fun.

Still, I got my first books on astronomy and paleontology when I was five. Astronomy kept me absorbed for many years, although looking up at the night sky as a child, I always wanted to go home.

For me, I don't know what I'm missing, so it's just normal, and not something I feel I lack. I'm sure it's not like this for you though, because it does take away some of your vision. Because I only can look through one eye at a time, half my vision is unfocused (I always look through my right eye, so my left side of the body is out of focus as I"m not focusing through the left eye unless I swap focus).

So many of us have that feeling!

Do you drive? I must admit that it's not a problem for me driving with no depth perception, I just seem to expand my awareness outside of myself to make up for it.

Photography only gives a 2D version of the world, so that is probably why it's my only creative area, though my father was a professional photographer, he was unable to get back into it after being called up into the RAF. Back in 2005, a person who I was in contact with then (coincidentally someone who was able to leave their body at will) said to me that my photos had something extra in them. Perhaps it's because I have a lot of 4th ray in my make-up.

I liked the articles that you wrote, though obviously 3D TV and virtual reality goggles wouldn't work for me. (Currently reading 'Ready Player One by Ernest Cline).

No, never have, but I have done a lot of k's on motorbikes (sports). It's never been a problem for me either. When it comes to golf, my strength is putting and chipping, so again, it doesn't seem to impact me there, but I think it makes it harder to be better than good with a sport in some instances.

I also seem to have a natural ability with photography.

When I was an assessment counselor in behavioral health, we used to screen for this and then refer to medical as appropriate and provide counseling in self-care, etc.

She is right that this is not commonplace in medical, so it is really nice knowing she has this insight and is changing the lives of children. I hope other practices see the merit in these screenings and follow suit.
