It's getting better all the time
Our Therapist moved our appointments to every 3 weeks unless there is a crisis. I feel nervous but I understand why. She is trying to wean me off of therapy all together. I don't think I will know what to do if I am no longer in therapy. Most of my life has been spent seeing a therapist. I had an acquaintance of mine who is a therapist tell me that therapy should only last 6 weeks max and that if I am still in therapy than they aren't doing something right. I disagree with him. How can you say 6 weeks is going to cure a person. People with DID are very complex and there are layers of inner scars that need to be healed. Depending on how bad your situation was growing up you can imagine how much undoing needs to be undone. I am actually feeling more healthy mentally than I ever have. I know I can't work and probably never will but I have a lot to contribute to the world and the people around me. I have the confidence to say that now whereas 2 years ago I wouldn't have believed that. Having DID isn't a burden to me anymore. It's just part of who I am. I am NOT my diagnosis it is only a fraction of who I am.
