#MajorDepressiveDisorder #DID #PTSD

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Reese. I'm a writer and sculptor. It's important for me to connect with others who are experiencing mental illness. It helps me feel less alone.

Web app for dissociation

Hi everyone! I am currently working on a web app designed with people experiencing dissociation in mind. I've noticed there aren't many resources for dissociation, and I want to help change that.

I want to make it as comprehensible as possible, since ideally someone experiencing dissociation wouldn't need to use multiple apps, but just this one on a daily basis. I am trying to gather as much feedback regarding this as possible, both from people with lived experience and from some experts.

Some features that will likely be included include a resources section, a trigger report feature, symptoms tracking, grounding exercises, a journal (that could be either a parts journal or a regular journal depending on the person's needs and preferences), among others.

Could you please share your thoughts and ideas on this with me? I would love to hear from more people what is actually needed and helpful! Thanks in advance!

My alter came out at work #DissociativeIdentityDisorder #DID #DissociativeEpisode #DissociativeDisorder

I haven’t been diagnosed for long but they psychologist said I fit the diagnosis and with history of episodes. My main alter is very primal; she’s violent, sexual, does obscene gestures and curses. One time I had a dress code argument at a job she made me unbutton my shirt and pants. I just remember coming back into my body and seeing my clothes undone and not remembering it till she told me in my head what she did. She has been wanting to come out because it’s been over a year since she’s taken control and today she did it before I clocked out of work.
First the main trigger was my old job coach who said I was making her up when I said I didn’t remember the undressing incident so she came out and called her names which caused her to not be my job coach anymore. She was at work for another client and my alter wanted to scream at her. I held it in but later when we saw that one of my biggest gripes at work happened (another department giving me work when I don’t get paid to do it) she said I was her time to come out. I bargained with her to just let me take a picture of what they added and as soon as I did that she took over and I was hovering above my body and I can barely remember what she did because I’m having brain fog. I do remember her saying they need to pay me for that job and throwing stuff (she likes to throw and kick) and giving an obscene gesture. Afterward I got an adrenaline rush and she said “you have nothing to loose and you need me to stick up for you.”
I might be in big trouble tomorrow at work so how do I explain that it was a separate me?
I know she came out because I’m having major life changes and mental flashbacks.
Does anybody know how to fix this? Does anyone know a better way of saying I won’t do another department’s work till you pay me their pay?
Should I tell my current job coach about this?

A Letter To Little Me

Hey there, little one. I know things have been hard. But the grownups are here now to help you. We didn't always know you were here, or that you had to heal, but I'm holding out my hand for you to take.
Little me, I love you. Or at least I'm trying to. And I know you blamed yourself. But darling you survived. Now you deserve to live, too.
So take my hand. Take me on your journey for whatever you remember. I'll be here every step of the way. Take a breath, little, one, take a break
You don't have to hold onto everything alone anymore. You don't have to carry the world on your back. Give it to me. I promise I'll stay. #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder #PTSD #CPTSD #DID

Web app for dissociation

Hi everyone! I hope this is suited for this group. I am currently on the very early stages of developing a web app for people experiencing dissociative symptoms in any form. I've noticed there aren't many resources for dissociation in this form, and I want to help change that.

The idea would be to make it as comprehensible as possible, since ideally someone experiencing dissociation wouldn't need to use multiple apps, but just this one. I am trying to gather as much feedback regarding this as possible, both from people with lived experience and from some experts.

Although it wouldn't be exclusively for DID, it would be meant to be suitable for someone with DID (for example, specifically for DID I am thinking about including features to keep a record of your parts and a journal feature that can be a parts journal if the user chooses that option).

Of course, grounding exercises, symptoms tracking, and so on, would also be included, even though this could be more general.

Could you please share your thoughts and ideas on this with me? I would love to hear from more people what is actually needed and helpful! Thanks in advance!#Dissociation #DID #Dissociative #DissociativeIdentityDisorder #dpdr #DissociativeEpisode #DissociativeDisorder #DissociativeFugue #dissociativeamnesia

I'm new here!

Hi everyone,
I am currently working on a web app to help people living with dissociative symptoms. I am still on very early stages of this development, and I would love to hear from you what you feel that could be useful! What do you think you need the most that could be in the form of a website?
It is possible that, if it shows useful, a mobile app version will also be built later, but for now I don't have resources or enough knowledge on mobile development yet.
Thanks in advance for your inputs!

OSDD and Being in Band

So we are an OSDD system and tonight we have a band concert at our school. We play the flute and have been playing for almost 3 years now. Whenever we play we have to be careful and ground ourselves so then we don't dissociate during the concert. It always gets weird when you end up in band class after just being in your bedroom and having NO IDEA how to play the flute lol.

Anyways, this is our last concert before Great East(For those who don't know, Great East is where all the 3 grades in our school, chorus, and band, perform in front of a group of judges and get a plaque on how good we did, then head to Six Flags for the rest of the day until 8:00) so wish us luck! :]

#DID and moving towards your #values #ACT

So I been going to this “trauma college” six months now and they have taught me ACT skills, the most mindblowing being that you can have values and when you do things that move you away from your values you tend to feel like crap/maybe accomplish less.

I was brought up a messages that told me not only did I not matter but that I better be perfect or risk death, all the while being abused from all sides for like my first 16 years. We also moved around so much I never formed solid connections outside myself and so I guess it’s why I now realize; Disassciative Identity Disorder perfect fits me. The idea that I’m allowed to even discover my values is great, but how am I supposed to move towards any that I identify if 1.) some of my parts value exactly the opposite of what other parts value, and 2.) I don’t even yet know all my parts but I DO know that (how unfair!) if they don’t all have a say some will act out even tho I don’t know what they want??
