“Have you ever trauma dumped? TikTok tells me this show might do that but don’t worry we can just trauma bond”.
Demi is obsessed with childhood trauma: naming it, analysing it, healing from it, and getting on stage to perform it. That last one might be a trauma response, but you can decide that. Entering her 30’s Demi expected to be more whole, more healed, to not still feel like a child. Because trauma lives in the body and the body keeps the score, and we all know what that means.
Disclaimer: Demi doesn’t know what that means.
