I. Am. Static. Hello.
Feeling kind if shitty. I want to go home and curl up with some tea or something. But I have class for another 3 hours :(
You do NOT have to:
Have more than one alter.
Have all human alters.
Have a little
Have a gatekeeper
Have an original
Be able to see your inside world
Have total amnesia
Have communication with your alters
Know you have DID
Recall memories of trauma
But it is okay if you have any or all of those! DID is a mental disorder that has many varying symptoms and signs. There is no “standard”
Think about it, it makes perfect sense: what good is the ability to mentally escape from an abuser if the abuser notices someone else came out? DID systems are made in order to allow the whole to keep functioning/existing for as long as possible. If your daily life got constantly disrupted by overt, public switches, then it would kind of fail it’s purpose wouldn’t it?
Here’s a fun idea, let’s stop making DID your fun little twist in your shitty AU’s and TV shows. Let’s stop portraying DID as someone who has one other personality that’s a fucking serial killer.
Let’s stop portraying mentally ill people as criminals by putting a “GASP, IT WAS ME ALL ALONG!?!?” at the end of every damn show.
Because you’re just spreading mental illness stigma, and that makes you a shitty person.
@totallyacomputer said: ask if they have a mail plan. Sometimes places will mail 1-3 months to you at a time, so even if it’s still only 1 month, you wouldn’t have to go to them.
that’s a good idea. I’ll look into it
Does it bother anyone else that there are parts of your life you don’t remember? You have done and said things that you don’t even know about anymore. That means you don’t even have the right perception of yourself because you don’t even fully know who you are. However, something that you’ve forgotten about could be a prominent memory in somebody else’s mind. It trips me out.
I wish I didn’t have to go back to the doctor so often to get my meds refilled. a few months worth would be nice, instead of a month and a half at most. I get that it’s a fear of overdosing, but I’ve never ODd and I don’t plan to. I guess cause they’re antidepressants and antipsychotics they keep a closer eye on them? it’s annoying though
I’ve been pretty freaked lately, about a lot of things. I’m trying to talk to people about it, but it’s hard. unfortunately (or fortunately) I’m really bad at hiding when I’m upset. I used to be better at it. now I suck. so people know right away when I’m doing bad. I guess it’s a good thing cause I’m being made to talk about it rather than bottling
