invalidation, discussion of the clinical side of the community 

I'm actually kinda sick of how often my experiences are called fake - either to me directly or via proxy. Even if I say "I don't know what this is, but it feels like X", so long as X isn't an Officially Used Term, I'm considered to be spreading dangerous misinformation and treated with hostility
And then there's some words I'm simply uncomfortable with applying to myself, but so much of that side of the community is like "If you don't like this word then you're a fake"

Maybe fusion feels like the best way to describe what I'm experiencing, it being much different than what I refer to as blurring. Maybe the term "parts" makes me feel invalid, as if the people within me helping me out are just shards or puzzle pieces instead of their own person. Maybe the use of my own term that I made myself doesn't immediately make me an endo faker

I miss how the community used to be. I took a break from it and it feels like everything crashed down around my ears into some kind of civil war

"Parts" especially, ugggggh I hate that term as much as I hate the terms "original" and "core", yet if I express any kind of distaste towards it and how utterly dehumanising it is, I'm a faker

@jymarucrew we use fusion too as something different than blurring! you dont have to listen to other people to know whats right for you

@jymarucrew Fusion is a term we use that we got from SU? I think I've heard others use the term "solidarity"
