Although previously thought to be a rare disorder, it has been found that 1 in 3 of the general population actually meet the criteria for diagnosis of D.I.D., making it just as common as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
This last month has been one of the biggest challenges for me since my diagnosis. I will admit I did not behave perfectly, but I know I did my level best. Going through a divorce for a marriage I was wishing never happened was only one small component in my January excitement. The car that... Continue Reading →
Thursday night I had a deadline in a class at school. I wasn't here. Not that I wasn't PHYSICALLY here. but I wasn't the primary personality. In fact, I have very little communication with that personality. It's not that she is a "bad" person, but I had switched. I experienced a trigger. Many triggers in fact. I... Continue Reading →
It feels like I am in a daze. Much is happening that I can't and won't share. Not mine to. But it all has an effect. Two days before Christmas, it feels nothing like a holiday.

The trip to return to my home state of Washington was full of setbacks, until I actually hit the Arizona border. From there on out, it was smooth sailing. That's not to say that I didn't experience my share of anxiety; I always do when driving. However, the drive was also full of time for... Continue Reading →
The little people inside my head are screaming. Uncontrollably. They don't like change. I am not sure how many there are, but there seem to be at least 4 under the age of 6. Personalities that are still little. That don't understand why the body is so huge and clumsy. They tend to walk the... Continue Reading →
I'm a medical cannabis patient. It is the only medication that hasn't left me with debilitating side-effects. The biggest problem is unreliable supply. Why do I have an unreliable supply? Because I can't afford the retail prices for my medication. I am disabled, my only income is disability retirement insurance, which barely covers my general... Continue Reading →
