I noticed that all the blogs about DID are super depressing. Like, So depressing that anyone else with DID couldn’t even read it without fear of being triggered by the sad shit that gets posted.
I know DID is really upsetting at times, really frustrating for myself and those around me, but as my friend Shady seems to believe; sometimes just laughing about the things that scare you can help.
Hell, I am pretty sure there is entire My Little Pony song dedicated to “Giggling at the Ghosties”. And that’s how I survive my life with DID. It was also my friend Shady who convinced me that we need to rectify the fact that there is no “Hey Look! We might have DID but we can also LAUGH like normal people” posts, thus leading to the creation of this blog. She may occasionally post something. She might not. Who knows.
I’m so sorry for having depression, and DID. So very sorry that many of my alters, several of whom use this blog, have grown up in pain. So, so sorry that the abuse we went through has had such an impact on us.
Listen, if a blog is triggering you, use tumblr saviour and ask them to tag posts, or unfollow. But this? I’m having a really hard time keeping in mind that you’re probably just trying to help. To me, this feels about as helpful and un-offensive as telling an anorexic to “just eat” or a person with depression to “just count your blessings” (both of which I have experienced).
