What CpG sites are associated with stress/trauma/low emotional intelligence/glucocorticoids?

This is my central weakness, given I emotionally struggle a lot. I’m going to do more research into this and post here

They are referred to by many terms, including early life adversity, early life stress, early life trauma, and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) (2). It is reported that the worldwide average trauma exposure rate is 69.7% for children and adults (3). In the United States, around 60% of adults reported that they had experienced at least one type of ACE (2).

Most of my relevant trauma is school (and historical parent) trauma, but the level of it I had was…unique… It is nowhere at the level of PTSD, however, I still constantly felt that I was stressed and doing the wrong thing in life ALL the time, and this has strongly affected my level of robustness and functioning even now.

How about seeing a therapist/psychologist?
Talking about it all should surely help.
Nothing to be ashamed of.

They always keep missing the main point and you keep on repeating yourself to each new therapist. Easier to do it with friends at this point, esp bc I know thousands of ppl

It’s EXTREMELY EXTREMELY hit and miss, just not worth it past a point. The good ones are expensive af

Look up what Qiaochu and Nick Cammarata say about them

Anyways, I cannot completely reverse an earlier life of low emotional intelligence.

…Let’s just say that Lada Nuzhna is the most anti-traumatic agent ever and the most important person in THE entire world… if only I could have known someone like her earlier… Still doesn’t reverse the fact that I was horrifically (and narratively) trapped for much of my super-early life.

I understand what you say about it being hit and miss and its so frustrating having to keep repeating yourself.
Glad you feel able to open up to friends and hopefully you can go some way to healing your past traumas.

Notably, 85 of the 353 loci that comprise the Horvath epigenetic clock are located near glucocorticoid receptor elements, and 110 loci showed altered DNA methylation after exposure to dexamethasone, a glucocorticoid receptor agonist [31]. Researchers have proposed biological mechanisms that may connect stress to epigenetics alterations and DNA methylation age/aging in particular [30, 32]. Accordingly, stress-inducing psychosocial exposures are frequently associated with DNAm-age.
