Lots Of Newbie QuestionsHi, I'm pretty sure I met an alter yesterday. Up until then the idea of having DID was new and on the back burner with me. But when i woke up I was a different person in my drea and I realized that this was starting to come to life and I now need to do something about it.
I spent the morning reading some advice and started a journal talking to the alters and asking questions, and I got a really ovvrrwhelming amount of responses although i srnsed the answers rather than heard them.
Anyway, how important is an official diagnoses?
And what should I know about starting thetapy--likr is that really, really necessary? If not, is there any helpful. healing information online?
My goal is to befriend them all and hope they merge, if i understand correctly?
Who do you tell and not tell? What are the reactions you get from people who dont understand the disorder?
And my daughter is 12, Im sure she's noticed alot of strange behavior. Should I tell her about this? Would it be innapropriate to ask her what strange behaviors she sees? Cause im dying to know what i look like from an outside perspective.
