Trig Terminology

How do you prefer to identify yourself when talking about trauma?
I am at a point where I am not a victim of abuse any more
Calling myself a survivor makes me feel like one more hash mark on some creeps list of victims.
Calling myself a fighter just seems flat out wrong as I am too peaceful
I just canít find a term that fits. Poor T called me a survivor last session and got his head bit off. Poor guy. He has been SO sensitive about everything. He never thought that calling me a survivor would set me off.
Now I need a word...
