PDA CHARACTERISTICS - THE PATHOLOGICAL VIEW

 

A list of pathological PDA characteristics.

 

We are currently creating posts (in no particular order) sharing our understanding of these Pathologised PDA characteristics –

 

Those things we do to prevent or protect us from 'TOO MUCH' information and interference or love to do such as mimic and take on others characters.

 

We love a good performance! Ha!

 

From our personal lived experience as PDA'ers, how it is for us – from the inside out rather than the outside in.
