> Hi Shelli,
> Actually I'm doing a little too well according to my shrink, but I'm not complaining. Went to the pain clinic to be watched like the good girl I am and to be tapered when I have to. I did ask you about DID, didn't know if that was your diagnosis, mine is dissociative disorders NOS. I was curious if that is your diagnosis, how long did it take was it obvious, etc. If not just ignore the last couple of sentences and have a great day- Judy

Hi Judy. I do have the same diagnosis as you. I have little kids inside but since I'm co-conscious with them, some therapists have put me in the DID category, others in DDNOS. I feel much more like DDNOS because there are so many ways that I don't have the same stresses as with MPD. My "kids" are always cooperative, don't come out unless they're allowed, and I don't find things that I don't know how they got in my house. In other words, the things that make DID so damn hard.

There was a long time that I knew there was one child inside, but all she would say is "I want my mommy". I don't remember exactly when that changed and she was a whole personality. I think the first time I was in the hospital. Then it was a big shock to have others inside--like how would I know who's talking to me, etc. But it all worked out, and the youngest have abreacted a lot of what happened to them. The eight year olds have not talked yet about what happened to them, except to say that it did happen. I don't focus on it a lot because I had a friend that only focused on memories and they never came to her--so I think when they're really they'll come out.

How did you come to diagnosed as DDNOS, instead of DID? Do you have different personalities inside? I guess you must have at least ego states, or you wouldn't be diagnosed.

I'm glad you are doing well. Is that why you went to the pain clinic--to be tapered down? Can they do that outpatient?
When are you due?

Shelli
