Kerria, if possible, can you find a T who knows how to work with DID?

That's a very special, and demanding (of the T's skill and tact and timing) kind of work, and you do need someone with both experience and the right temperament to feel his or her way with you. not push, force.

Is there any way you can find someone to help you forget and put away for the future, these parts that have been too quickly brought into the dialogue?

Someone who knows how to keep you safe, and only do things after long preparation, and your readiness?

You need and deserve someone who isn't going to cause further damage, and trauma, or cause you to remember things, unless it's crucial to recovery-- and only in manageable way.

If this T isn't trained, and has gone in too far, maybe someone else can help you rebalance, and regain your footing.

Don't let this terrible experience push away all the possiblities for your life, that you aren't able to feel now.

You can find a better life, and get back to a place where these memories are in their place, and you're not in danger from them.

Does any kind of meditation or mindfulness help even a little, when the thoughts and feelings get too painful? This may sound really silly, but I was reading that various smells can be used to reduce pain, in people with chronic pain. I tried one, and afterward I really couldn't feel the pain. It was just a sensory way of focusing my mind somewhere else. Is there any way you can do that?

It's hard to fight for yourself, with so much turmoil and badness, but try to, if you possibly can. That you're writing here is a good sign, it shows that you're not without any resources, and can be for yourself.

I've been looking for you.
