Anonymous said: Severe trauma is a requirement for DID; you can't have DID without a major trauma in your early life.

i was afraid of that…

…i wonder what it is that happened to me…….. i… i wonder what it is that made it so that.. i cant hardly remember a lot of what my early childhood was like……… it makes me so scared to think about it…. i thought my childhood was happy enough… things were bad, but i hoped they wouldn’t be that bad.. i wonder what i did to make it happen…

Hold up. Let me stop you right there.

I’m not a professional, but I would say DID develops whenever the brain feels threatened and/or traumatized enough to split in order to protect itself. Everyone’s brain is different and everyone processes trauma differently. What may be traumatic for one child may not necessarily be traumatic for another. Also, a child may experience trauma, and while they obviously won’t come out unscathed, they may not necessarily develop DID either.

Some of the trauma I discovered I went through, I was really confused about, because it didn’t seem so bad to me. But I had to reconcile with the fact that it may not seem horrifying now, but it certainly was when I was a child. Whatever happened to you may not be as bad as you think. Mind you, that doesn’t make you weak, in the least bit. It just means your mind functions differently than others.

In any case, your emotions, perspectives, opinions, etc, past and now, are 100% valid.

I hope that makes sense. I don’t want anyone to have to worry so much about the past. I just care. <3

really dissociated today, but talked to my brother about him meeting my alters along with my parents. it went well :) surpisingly so! all that’s left is to actually switch in front of them. which is scary, but relieving too

Hey, you don’t HAVE to switch in front of anyone if you or your alters don’t want to. You have nothing to prove to anyone. You just be you, and count it as bonus when people accept that. <3

I know. but I want them to meet some of my alters and some really want to meet them. thank you :)

some thing weird I’ve noticed a few times when I get over-stimulated is that if I have a song in my head it feels like the song is being blasted from all around me and just adds to the over-stimulation. it’s really weird. does that happen to anyone else?
