I Was Recently Diagnosed With Dissociative Identity Disorder

*deep breath*
I always thought i was lost in my own chaos, drowning one minute and rage the next. I lost between 14-15 yrs of my life, the memories i do have are of me being older. I know of 4 alters that live within, Ms. Hyde-the protector/aggressor, Sandra-the off the wall and the dangerous one, Timmy-a child and Victor-the gate keeper.
I’m not sure how to handle this, everyday is a constant struggle, i see txt msgs between my alter and my husband or an alter and a friend. Eventually i will be able to adjust to it, but for now i have a therapist and my husband to help me through this.

Finding a way to communicate with each other and work as a team is so important. It's also the most difficult. I'm struggling with it now. Good luck, my thoughts are with you.

Ms. Hyde-the easiest way for us to communicate with Denise is by leaving her notes in our journal. I got an app for her phone and that is where we leave any information, places we went or conversations we had with her husband or friends. It's working so far. You are in our thoughts also Owlmaid.

Talk to them, develop a working relationship, love them.
