WE ARE A MULTIPLE.

This means we are multiple states of consciousness in one body.

Like us, this website will serve multiple functions.

With our content, we aim to aide in the fight against stigma for mental illness. We want to help others so we plan to use this space to share coping skills and techniques we’ve tried as well as what works best for us.  In addition to being a space to help the community, it’s also a a space for us to share our story about living with dissociative identity disorder.

This year is already different than the last one. ⠀
.⠀
At the beginning of 2019, we were living in an extended stay hotel.  I guess you could say what happened for the next 12 months was a roller coaster but it doesn’t feel like even that would describe the truth of the up and down that it was. ⠀
.⠀
What actually happened rarely matters though – and that is true in this case as well.  The things that happened to us in 2019 mean very little.  What’s more important is what happens after the things that happened – how we reacted and how we cooperated as a system. ⠀
.⠀
What matters is that we continued to use what happened to learn and grow and to help others learn and grow too.  And that alone is enough for us to call this our most successful year yet. ⠀
.⠀
But we also - - -⠀
.⠀
…tamed some of our most mal-adaptive behaviors in 2019. ⠀
.⠀
…learned better and new ways to cope. ⠀
.⠀
…were able to feel our feelings and communicate them ⠀
effectively, both with our parts internally and with real life people in the external world.⠀
.⠀
…prioritized our mental health.  All year. ⠀
.⠀
So I think we accomplished more than we bargained for.  And while we do still have growing to do, as we always will, this time it feels like we can breathe.  This time it feels like we finally understand the most important and most powerful thing…⠀
.⠀
Together – we can do anything. ⠀
.⠀
Together, as a system ⠀
.⠀
Together, as a community ⠀
.⠀
Together – we can do anything.⠀
.⠀
Tell us something you learned your system could do if you worked together in the comments.
