    Hi Ettina

    I have read and re-read your page on your website and found it very interesting.

    Firstly I would like to say thankyou for letting me read it, I found it very interesting to read how you think and feel and why you react the way you do.

    You are good at writing and have a very good insight about yourself.

    Your obviously are demand avoidant and love fantasy and role play.

    I do hope that through your honesty about yourself and your disability, in time, you will meet more people who have the same condition.

    You are right to point out that no 2 people are the same therefore no 2 people with PDA will be exactly the same.

    Thankyou for sharing so much with us.

    Thankyou for sharing that with everyone.
    ps be great to have you talk at the next conference .you are brave.from joanne. :)
  • It was very interesting to read about how one person with PDA experiences things, and I think you are a talented writer. Thanks for sharing this with us
  • I too thought it was very good and it gives us a very good insight. I think you are a very talented writer and you have very good personal insight. I'm findng at the age of 10 my son can now explain some of the things to me which upsets him, makes him refuse demands etc.

    Well done, I hope you continue to keep writing :lol:
  • Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. My son is quite recently diagnosed and I have struggled to understand what it is like for him. To learn directly from someone who knows what it is like and is able to document it so well is immensely helpful. Please continue to share your thoughts.

  • I am moved by your writings. I also truly appreciate them as they have been a huge help to me in understanding my son and in improving our relationship. I thank you more than words can say.
