There aren't many public figures who have come out about their diagnoses of Dissociative Identity Disorder, but I'm considering starting a series here about those who have. Our first subject is Hershel Walker. Mr. Walker is a person in Georgia running for a political office who is a former football player. Hershel Walker authored a... Continue Reading →
Have you ever entered your body to find it performing religious practices that offend your very soul? No? Well, you may not deal with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) then. In September 2021, a few alters who have been primary in the past, in the MyMEs system, came forward to take over as the "Maggie" alter... Continue Reading →
Time-Sharing This Body
I haven't been writing a lot on this blog. Instead, I have been making a habit of talking about Dissociative Identity Disorder very casually. Sometimes, I just refer to it as "my mental illness," other times I make sure to concentrate on the facets that have a wider mutual understanding, like complex-PTSD and anxiety as...

A Colonoscopy, Ketamine and Polyfragmentation

It really doesn't matter what comes next. The words will all fade out no matter what they... Continue Reading →

Confronting Drama with ALL of MEs
We have been married for almost three years. Every month I lived with my husband, he went through both of our medicine supplies by the 10th of the month. The rest of the month he spent digging out the hidden stashes I had and complaining and begging his mother to send him money. Which she did on several occasions.
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 →
My Littles are Screaming
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 →
Debriefing after a Break
Last week I lost it. Just completely and totally lost it.
