FinallyI have talked about my husband's last alter Fay, who needs to emerge and tell her story.
We had to come to his hometown because of an emergency. Fay has shown herself a number of times since we've been here. She is unable to talk and has motioned what she wants.
She had unfinished business to deal with and since she has been having these needs met she is starting to want to finally show my husband what her trauma is.
It is going to be really difficult for him, but she knows he is ready for it. She is just trying to get the courage to tell it. We all know what it is, except for my husband.
My husband is reliving his life from birth on. He needs to do this so he can get Fay's memories and continue reliving his life from there. This time he is seeing it from and adults view.
I watched Fay and another alter as they relived their trauma. The one that is being kept from my husband. He was getting the body memories and emotions, but not the facts, while this was taking place. It was really hard to watch, but I did not interfere, as this is part of the healing process.
He is so excited that he will soon be a whole man with all the memories of his life. All the memories the others have protected him from. Therapy has been 4.5 years in the making and is nearing the end.
It has been a long journey with many ups and downs. Many hard moments for them. It is going to be so worth all the effort and hard work from all of us.
I am so excited and happy for them.
He will be totally healed, but has no intentions of integrating any of his alters unless that is what they want.
I am so PROUD of him and all of them. They have shown me so many things. I am very fortunate to have them in my life.
