Are those who have a mental illness more intuitive?
Most individuals who have a mental illness have experienced trauma throughout childhood or adolescence leaving the individual hypervigilant.
I sometimes wonder if some people who have experienced trauma notice small signs including usually unnoticeable facial expressions or body language that others who are less vigilant don’t notice… I feel that people who have a mental illness are almost ‘more than’ than ‘less than’ as they can notice small traits in others that non mentally ill people don’t.
