Wouldn't be the first time...
Anyhow, this seems to be a topic of some controversy.
Ugh, I feel like Bob, I want to ask questions that are...well...Bobish..but I won't.
Thanks Realme.
That was an informative post.
The one above desctibing DD's etc.
It just goes to show how utterly confusing all this stuff truly is.
I have tried researching and it is indeed crazy making.
Thats why I am so inclined to just call them all DD, cuz they all interconnect and involve dissociation in such a way as it interferes with daily functioning.
If it doesn't interefere, its not a 'disorder'.
Thats my way of thinking.
Just for me, my life was such a continuing mass of confusion, and when I found out some stuff, it was SUCH a huge releife to me, cuz then it wasn't as confusing. SO much made sense finally. The reasons I could never move ahead, why I couldn't think, why i had such a bad sense of time, why i had the physical weirdness, why I always hid, etc etc etc. Its an ongoing journey of discovery for me. But alot better knowing stuff than being so utterly utterly lost.
So I am sorry if I say wrong things. I suppose I shouldn't be so rah rah, but like I said, this has been huge for me.
I just wonder if there's others out there reading and if it might help them. Its just much of what i learned bout myself I figgered on my own. I did not reseach cuz i wanted my own ideas. So then I research later and what i had figgered WAS real! Others were the same. I wasn't just being an idiot. So it is exiting for me in some ways.
Cuz it was so hard for so long, and I was SO lost so much of the time. So if I can help another somehow. That'd be great.
*I* beleive i have come to terms with my disorder. But I am afraid not all of me has. There is still great shame and fear on the part of others.
I will also cease to use the word p**p as I can understand how that might be problematic. Just when I say it, I think 'people', and that word is not insulting to my inner world. Cuz they are themselves, and we know that, and we do OK. There has been GREAT strides made in the arena of acceptance. It feels good.
So there you have it.
