I don't mind answering the questions. I think its good to get it out in the open and talk about what it really is and isn't. You can ask me whatever you would like!

Miss H asked:

>So for example, are you say usually 75% td and 25% an alter personality?

It can go both ways. Sometimes I can be 100% an alter personality for periods of time. But on a general day to day basis, I would say that your percentages are fairly on target, obviously give or take a bit.


> I am also curious how this affects your marriage. I remember you saying that your husband knew all about your dx. I'm curious to know how he deals with your alters when they show up in full force?


We don't have an easy marriage by any means. It's very hard and he isn't a saint who magically understands what I'm going through. It's very painful for him, especially if I must be hospitalized. Mostly he gives me the space and room I need, which is a lot. He tries to be as patient as he can but it can run out fast, needless to say. There is a lot he doesn't understand, and the enormity of the abuse I've been through is hard for him to grasp. He isn't a very communicative type. He doesn't know a lot about who's who when it comes to my alters (I guess its too much to digest) so he usually just deals with me in a cautious way. He is usual pretty cued in to what is happening with me and my moods and acts accordingly. But there haven't been any dramatic switching or anything-it usually tends to be a lot less low key than what people might have seen on television. But he's pretty aware of it after the years we've been together.
