DIDYou Forums are back

jakebabel:

Just letting everyone know that I’ve reopened our DIDYou forum :D I apologize for closing it before, but we’re feeling a lot more confident right now and figure we may as well make the most of it. If we feel like we can’t handle it, next time, we’ll throw the reins to someone else rather than deleting the forum. Either way, it’d be great to have everyone back again :) Old and new faces. Multiplicity of all kinds are welcome!

If it doesn’t kick off again, that’s okay, but I thought I’d give it a try!

Here’s the link if anyone wants it: didyou.forumandco.com

I’m also really needing Moderators right now, so if anyone is good to the community and has some spare time on their hands just let me know :)

I’m planning on doing a DID mega-post

It will be aimed at dispelling myths about DID, and based mostly on studies done by other people that have been peer-reviewed. I need some myths and facts that you’ve heard about DID, so if you could comment or reblog with any that you’ve heard, I would be grateful. Thank you!

otherkin multiples and other annoyances

amanessa:

rainbowriotunsilenced:

Okay. I chronically dissociate. My psychiatrist agrees that I have a severe dissociative disorder - most likely DID or “multiple personalities.” So I am a multiple. I experience discrete parts of myself or alters which take control of my body while I black out.

But. But. But. I cannot entertain this otherkin stuff. I don’t know why you think that you have a vampire or a faery or what-have-you living in your body, but that does not make you DID. I suspect that the majority of otherkin multiples are self-diagnosed. I also suspect that they are young (under 20).

This is just from what I have seen on Tumblr.

Another thing: there is no such thing as singleton privilege. There is such thing as ableism. If you are disabled by a mental illness, you may experience discrimination. But no one oppresses you simply by not being multiple. They may not understand you, but that is not the same as oppressing you.

otherkin and DID are separate things, but things that can happen together. most of the ‘kin multiples we know are actually over 20, and have been diagnosed with DID. tumblr isn’t actually the only place in the world to get an education on this stuff.

all of our anger got put onto one alter. one alter who was made purely from anger, with nothing else to temper it. he’s darkkin.

one of our alters fled from humanity, burying it within herself. she had to take abuse, and she had to make it seem like she still liked the man that did it. puppy dogs are very good at that.

you don’t have to ‘entertain this otherkin stuff’. but you don’t have to insult those who do.

as for privilege, it’s not all about oppression. as a person with light skin, i get taken a lot more seriously then dark-skinned people around here. no one will make negative assumptions based on my skin colour. those are privileges. it’s discriminatory to not take someone seriously because of their skin colour, or to assume they’re a bad parent because of their skin colour, but those alone aren’t oppression. there are privileges that singletons have over multiples, and i’m pretty sure that if you ask, people will be able to give a decent list of them.

I miss birthdays. Life has been bleh since birthdays became a trigger. 

Name days instead?

I'll get into your mind so please get out of mine.: I’m getting so annoyed with you. I wish I could just open your eyes up...

ustulation:

I’m getting so annoyed with you.
I wish I could just open your eyes up to how asinine you are but your dissociations and delusions stop me. I’m babying a 22 year old and I can’t do anything about it because I’m too nice to say fuck off, or leave you in the dust. I can’t do that to someone living…

You want to be a therapist, but you’ve decided that a person with DID is delusional instead?

I stopped going to youth group because of this :/ I’d be standing there feeling like I was going to pass out constantly. I must have looked just about saintly, cos I had to kneel for half of every meeting so I didn’t crash to the ground.

This is how I/we ended up coming out. Amanda was so sick of pretending, so she ended up ‘helping’ me to write on my facebook that I had DID. By ‘helping’, I mean that she co-fronted with me, took control of the keyboard and wrote it while I watched and panicked… It ended up okay though.
