Glossary of Terms


I am not a mental health professional and all of the information on this blog is gleaned from either personal experience or from research that is available free of charge via the Internet. In no way am I responsible for the action or inaction of anyone other than myself when mental health issues or any other issues are concerned.

All people living with dissociative identity disorder have had different experiences growing up and thus different traumatic experiences as well. No two systems are alike. What works for me may or may not work for you.

I advise anyone who reads this blog to always seek out the help of a trained mental health professional. Listen to them and try to follow their lead. I am not qualified to tell anyone what to or not to do.

  1. I learned that a person from my past and was recently reconnected with was diagnosed with DID. I am trying to learn all I can about the disorder and appreciate your website. Just learning about her diagnosis allowed me to understand just why our relationship was so tumultuous. I never even understood what was going on. Now I stand by her as her friend and am supportive when I need to be and give space and quietness when I realize I’m dealing with other issues or identities. I have learned not to take negative comments personally and it really helps. Thanks for your website and all of the useful information. There is always hope I believe.
