Update On Fay

Fay has been out a few times since we came back from PA. She recently has come out to teach me sign language. You see, Fay is mute.

She wants me to learn sign so her and I can communicate without needing another inside to speak for her. We can write things down, but she really doesn't like that.

The other day, I asked her how she was feeling and she told me she was happy. She is excited to because her nephew and nieces are coming to visit.

I have seen a lot of progress from her. She holds shame and was always so sad. She just wanted to be left alone. For her to say she is happy brought tears to my eyes.

It is nice to finally get to know her and see what her personality is. She is good natured, kind, and caring. She is also poetic and a very good writer. 

I look forward to watch her continued healing and to get to know her even more.

My fiance has/had a blind alter. Has in terms of the mothering one was blind but when she integrated, she passed the blindness to the semidestructive one left. So it has been really interesting to have my spouse go from fine to blind in a second. We learned to just use touch for comfort. Good luck with signing :)

You have a rare gift in Fay. And your communication will blossom. That was a kind thing to be able to learn to do that for her and you. It is contagious as it made me feel good about human nature and the world is not a bad place.. was listening toa music video and watching it..still photos from about 67 by a hippie group can't remember who and it is an anti war theme and the words in one stanza were : The world is a bad place a terrible place and .... yadda yadda.. Such crap.. but the music had a soothing feel to it. Oh well one of my rants.. sorry.. But you made the world a good place for Fay and You.

Thank you! My husband has started integrating his alters now. This is new, about a week. He feels so liberated. I am going to write a story soon.

forgot to mention one thing
