It has been a few weeks since Bobbie got some new clothes and wearing them has been an interesting experience. Continue reading “My new wardrobe”
I came across an interesting post I want to share with you. It is a basic, non-graphic description of how DID is formed and has come comparisons to other psychological conditions. Continue reading “DID Documentary”
I have been saying for a while that I don’t want to hide my DID anymore. But I do. Continue reading “Be Brave / No Secrets”
We like looking at pictures with Simion and he loves to point and tell us who he sees.
Recently looking through pictures he identified some of me, Rich as “Mama”. I was a bit confused.
I recently came into contact with a journalist looking to interview people with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). After seeing the movie Split she decided to learn more about DID and publish an article with realistic information and personal views of what living with DID is like.

We were cheering for the other team and still thought it was ludicrous that there was a “scandal” that they won. During the occasional moments we don’t have children demanding things from us Ana and I are cleaning, cooking, playing Minecraft and, per her suggestions, painting nails.
I have always wanted children. This I knew from an early age – I don’t expect that many high school kids actively envision what their family will look like in X years. But I did. I may have done this as early as 5th grade.. my recall of time is very skewed. But I envisioned 3 kids. Continue reading “Explaining alters to children”
