So here is my opinion that I was sure to get hate for. Yes I’m an alter and no I’m not a person. I’m part of an imagination of a little girl that was severely neglected and abused who wanted other people to take her place. I really hate seeing those posts of “alters are people” they aren’t. Yes they have their own interests and fears, but that was all made up by imagination and the fear of a little child who needed help when no one was there. So she made her own help. No we are not made by her command but we are made by the brain reading the need to have others. That is just how I see it. People can have their own opinion, but this is mine.
We are not people. We are not real so we are not people.
I’m not trying to discredit others or make them go in denial. D.I.D is a real disorder its just that I think people are trying to make it to real and going way to far into delusions.
(Do not go harassing my host either. He doesn’t need that and its my opinion not his.)
I think that that’s a valid opinion but you shouldn’t push it on other people or say that other people are or are not people because your system works one way. Systems work a lot of different ways, not all of them are the same.
That’s how I feel. There’s no way I can be a real person I know I was made by Lee’s psyche. Don’t mean I’m not real but I don’t have a real personhood, how can I when I can’t be acknowledged as a full person or even by the woman who’s my Ma too? Any day the system in her head that created me can take me out again, can make me fully part of her by making me just an alternate expression of her personality. Then again we ain’t DID, we don’t have that severe compartmentalization thing. We’re all co-friendly whatever. Maybe if things were different as kids we wouldn’t be so damn coherent in memory but we are, and that’s how we are. I was always around but I fell asleep, coming out only in part when she or the system needed me to. Then she commanded me out but it was never the same, it was never and won’t ever be my world. It’s only hers and I’m here to get her to accept that.
