I think this is very insightful. And I agree with Dinah that he might be burned out. A good clinician also knows that not every technique works with every patient every time. So they need to be able to try other things. Is there someone else on his team who might be more invested in doing therapy?
> For me, it's so horrific to live as separated parts. i would choose to communicate if i could. Up until now attempts at communication have driven me to feel s. and if that happened it wouldn't be so good for my kids.

It would also help if he was a lot less arbitrary and stopped giving me the thought that he thinks i'm not going to make it.

It sounds like you two are not on the same page as far as therapy goals. Have you had the time or energy to do some research on other ways to treat DID? Perhaps there is another method that is a better fit for you.

I do know the idea of changing involves more stress and a need to form trust again. But maybe, just maybe, it might be worth the risk?
