In reply to Anyone go inpatient for DID/ways to know parts?, posted by kerria on August 27, 2005, at 17:48:22

I have a somewhat different situation from yours- an ego state disorder- but the basic challenge is the same- getting to know, accept and integrate unconscious feeling states involving younger traumatized selves. I do think a very empathic therapist is key. You have said that your therapist is very skilled at dealing with DID, but from how you have described him, he really doesn't sound very caring. This is probably his own personal limitation, but I think it puts you in an impossible situation- not one where you can gain confidence and move towards health. Do you have any other therapist choices? It would be such a relief for you to find one who feels warm and caring. I don't personally know of inpatient services specifically for that, although you said that you had been in a good one twice in Washington State. Realistically, treatment does need to be long-term for DID, so it might be better to search for the best out-patient therapist you can possibly find, and then stick with him/her. I wouldn't be able to deal with some of your therapist's comments without feeling awful and turning the blame for the interpersonal situation on myself. People with dissociative disorders have good prognoses when the therapist-client match is good, but you sound so discouraged and hopeless. That could change a lot with a new therapist.
