Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)
Welcome to My New Blog & Podcast Adventure
DID has been part of my life ever since I experienced the trauma of sexual abuse as a child for several years. When I discovered I was DID about 15-years ago, I began to process portions of the trauma and now I’m ready to do more work. So, I’ve decided to do this Blog and Podcast as part of my path to healing. I am in therapy as well to help me along the way.
Let me start by saying that DID is real, although I think there are many forms and definitions of the disorder out there. And I think we must be cautious of what we choose to believe.
Firstly, DID is not an illness, it’s a disorder like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Secondly, DID is an ingenious way the body and mind choose to cope in a traumatic situation. Finally, I will do my best to be transparent, honest, courageous, and loving in my posts.
P.S.: Though I do have multiple personalities, I do not experience switching to them in dramatic ways, like changing clothes, ages and voices. So, if you are looking for that, you’re in the wrong place.
