I am doing the same kind of therapy that you are. My analyst considers me to have dissociated emotional states- a pretty normal adult one, and a truly terrified and distrustful child one or ones. This isn't DID, but is on the same spectrum- just milder. When I realized that he was really serious about these different parts of me, I was horrified, and felt shocked and helpless. I think it is the hardest work in the world to do, but every time I go we do a little bit. and it is really helping. I fell apart pretty badly, too, and have increased my sessions to as many as four a week, as the child parts tend to feel abandonned and withdrawn if I go less often.

I feel so lucky to have found an analyst who is really experienced with dissociation, and knows how to work with it. Knowing how good he is with it allows me to show him parts of me I've never shown anyone- and that I barely knew I had. Your therapist sounds just as wonderful- in general- and for dissociation in particular. i don't know if there are all that many therapists who work in this way. I am sure you will eventually feel so much better, and will be so glad you did it. I'm cheering for you (and hope you'll do the same for me!)
