The feelings associated with DID?
I am frustrated so much of the time. But then there are other times when I am exhilarated. And then there are the times my head hurts and I cry. Don't forget the numbness of total shutdown in freeze mode. Is confusion a feeling?

Oh I believe confusion is a feeling. It is one we feel most of the time.

LOL! It is when you have 5 or 25 or 105 others running around inside of you. For me the changes in feelings often signal a change in self. We had an exhilarating day today. Mostly involving physical activity. I know Katherine Ann was out for it because for her expending energy is exhilarating.For others it is a nuisance. KA beams when she completes a task. She can be competitive but she is 14.

We have Barbara who is sooooo dark when she is out. So much so that Gabriel has taken her under his wing and she seldom shows herself.

When we are in the mood to helpp others and all of the right words fall into place it is most likely me, Catherine. There is little that gives me more joy than seeing others who are happy.

If someone is swearing at you in our head there are most likely teenagers lurking. Enjoy! Wink

Caution  RE: The feelings associated with DID?
We have a variety of feelings, depending on the specific insider, how active that insider is, and what that insider's history and triggers are.

Example: Recently we replaced our old, broken vertical window blinds with new horizontal ones. We have seven windows in our apartment. The blinds we replaced were for one living-room window and two bedroom windows. The bathroom window already had horizontals, and the row of three windows by the kitchen table has sturdier vertical blinds that don't need replacing.

Anyway, the new blinds are much less bulky because they don't cover the window frames or have a big valance on top. So the rooms seem bigger and more open. We really like the new look and feel. But one of our littles was triggered. emily is six and a half and doesn't come out much. But she didn't feel safe seeing that the window frames were now "naked." So we managed to convince her to look at it as the windows were being "set free" from the old bulky shades. She's not thrilled, but she accepts it.

This probably digresses a bit from the original topic, but it serves to illustrate the diversity of feelings within our system.
