Silly  Hi new here
Hi,
We are brand new here and think it will take us awhile to learn the forum format. Please be patient with us.
We are a large system in an older body. We don’t have a host.

We were diagnosed in the late 80s back when it was still mpd. We had a good therapist for 4 years. After that, a different therapist sent us into about 27 years of extreme denial and suppression of alters.
Eating
We like our therapist though she is not a specialist. The only specialist in our geographical area is too far away and also doesn’t accept our insurance even if we could travel.
We have been on SSD for over a decade because of our DID and the related anxiety, ptsd and depression.
We have been in the process of meeting alters for the past year, working on internal communication and acceptance and that is ongoing. We do 3 types of journaling, art work and we also have 3 support workers from our state DMH. But our collective communication has a really long way to go.

At the moment we are having extra stress because our regular therapist is out on medical leave. We do have a back up therapist. And we we are looking forward to her return.
Thank you for accepting us into this forum.

RE: Hi new here
welcome, earthandskyfolks. we hope you are able to come again and chat on the forums - you'll find lots of support from others here who deal with a lot of the same issues you describe.

having your t out on medical leave can be so difficult - glad you have a back up t and hope your back up is helping you - we just know that for us when our t was out for medical reasons, the back up t was not very good at helping us manage our emotions about our t's absence.

we look forward to getting to know you better

welcome, earthandskyfolks. A lot of here have had bad experiences with Ts. We had one who stated "I have not rules out FMS". First and last meeting. We have also had (and have) very good Ts. It is good that your T recognized that she needed a break but I am glad for you that she is coming back. I hope you come back here.
