what's coming up for me
i'm in my last week of break between semesters. i'm close to counting down to the end of official coursework, and then comes the real challenges... comprehensive exams (written and oral), proposal defense, review board approval and then research, writing the dissertation and defending it.

i think i'll just focus on classwork for now. if i look at all the stuff i need to do after, i overwhelm myself.

That is a good plan Mosaic. Have you decided what your thesis topic will be? I could think of a few topics but I don't even have a Masters.

Good luck! we finally did our viva after so much time putting it off. after all the fear, the actual day was quite relaxed! usually the fear is worse than the reality.

RE: what's coming up for me
my hope is to do what is called phenomenological research on the lived experience of dissociation... it would involve interviewing those with DID etc. and getting a sense of what life is like for them. i would be very clear that the purpose of the interview is NOT to ask how they became multi, or to delve into their trauma, but rather to find out how they manage life, work, etc.

does that make sense?

I would be very willing to be interviewed by you if it would be helpful. I am sure that you have connected with others over the years. I am glad that you are focusing on DID!

It would probably7 be easier for you to interview people who are closer to you.

RE: what's coming up for me
Same here Mosaic I would be more then happy to submit to an interview, as I believe the more info out there on people us who are multi can help to educate those that are not, as our lives are a bit then the singletons. That outsiders to our world can understand that we may have issues but we can and are contributing members to our society.
