I don’t really want to go into detail yet. I may or may not, or give a general recap but my therapy session was intense. When I got home and sat down I fell asleep straight away.

Hi this is Tiny! I also go by Sebastian! You should message me, I wanna talk to people!

traumaanddissociation:

DID

  1. Not rare
  2. One of several dissociative disorders, other specified dissociative disorder (OSDD, was DDNOS) is very similar and has the same treatment guidelines
  3. Found consistently world-wide
  4. Usually occurs alongside complex PTSD symptoms
  5. Trauma-based, treatment guidelines are based on the 3 stages of treatment that the Complex PTSD treatment guidelines are based on - complex PTSD guidelines produced by http://www.issts.org
  6. Those with DID are frequently subject to cyberbullying attacks by organized online groups, some survivors and advocates have taken legal action against regular cyberbullies & stalkers
  7. Linked to incest including pedophile rings
  8. Scientists who think DID is created by therapists or a social construct/invention are in the minority and make frequent mistakes in their academic work (example: Joel Paris and his failed attempt to suggest research in DID was dwindling when it was growing)
  9. Opposing DID as a diagnosis means opposing other specified dissociative disorders and dissociative fugue - fugue states are common within DID, and dissociative amnesia is a requirement of DID, and ignoring all attachment theory work especially on disorganized attachment, and involves ignoring the Dissociative subtype of PTSD and the fact that both dissociative symptom and Amnesia are common within DID
  10. DID was first documented in 1646 by Paracelsus and is well documented in history, back when mental health conditions were called “hysterical”, DID was known as hysterical dissociation. Pierre Janet and Freud were well known on their work in this field. History of DID: http://www.dissociative-identity-disorder.net/wiki/History

Went to work today. I didn’t feel like a consistent identity at all. I was extremely productive. I didn’t tell either of my bosses why I was absent. 2 purple heckled me, one was forgiving. I’m still on the schedule next week. I’m not fired and didn’t have to sign a write up.. They also got someone to cover me.

So those are all good things. I wonder if I should tell my bosses. I might have to if this doesn’t sort out. I might need a medication adjustment. Tomorrow I gave therapy though. So I can talk to my therapist, now that I think she has a nearing complete picture of my mental health, about what I really want to work on. What my treatment goal is.

That is to have all of these issues but be able to maintain all sorts of relationships with friends, work, professional life, and personal life.

We just have to get her not to see us as an illness but just an indicator of stress and a state of cognitive functioning. So I’m going to give her some of the resources that I have to give her a perspective of what I have been going through and where I’m headed.

Hi hi hi hi hi!

Hiiii. It’s Tiny and Lee. We’re blurring a whole lot. Lee drank alcohol but she’s not supposed to on her medication. It’s late, but I’m bored. Let’s talk! My face feels weird.

Support, no matter how small, can go very far in a person’s life.

I’m going through some different things in my life. Although for the majority in my life I wanted to be trans. Now i”m deeply considering if this is a matter of how I physically feel or how I want to be approached socially and make sure that I make the right decision based off of this. I have not had a very supportive family about my gender identity and oddities since I was young, but since I stopped being abashed about who I was around age 18 I have received more support as my family has come to understand. I have no idea of transitioning would really help me in my daily life with my struggle of self-acceptance and depression… No idea at all.

I’m not trying to pretend to be healthier than I am. Instead I endeavor to be insightful and thoughtful about my experiences. It’s a beneficial skill for my own situation and it doesn’t give any body the wrong impression about having such an active internal reality.

This is my journey, and as much as I might scrape my knees by tripping or climbing I might also take a wrong turn or misjudge my resources.

We don’t climb mountains by pretending that we don’t have weak ankles or asthma, so to speak. We climb mountains by building and reinforcing and being open to the unpredictable.
