Oh yes, I hear you there :-)

No. And I have never met anyone with DID in person.


IMO (though I may have misunderstood some of what you have written...)

It is really unhelpful and counter-productive for your t to tell you about them and tell them about you...

Your t has arranged things so she is the hub of communication. She is the focal point. The different alters communicate to her. One alter tells her something then she relays that to another alter.

I think your t should be helping to show one alter (e.g., you) how to communicate with another. And to show you how to deal with the communications you receive from the others.

If she is functioning as a hub then there is little need for you to learn how to do this... For them to communicate with you (they can always communicate to her) For you to communicate with them (you can always communicate to her)

You need to be the hub of communication. You need to be the focal point. The different alters should communicate via you. One alter tells you something and then you can relate that to your t so that she can help you cope with / integrate that new information.
