An Epiphany of Sorts
I forgot to mention this on my last blog and I think it is really important to share. My Therapist told me that out of all my family members I am the healthiest one of all them mentally. No one has ever said that to me. I just figured because I have DID I am unstable mentally. That is very untrue. We do not do sick things to children or animals. We don't abuse anyone emotionally or physically. We are facing our inner challenges and parts and are healing and are stronger than we give ourselves credit for. They are the ones who live in sickness mentally. They live in lies and denial. I live in truth and acceptance.I have the ultimate desire for contentment and happiness and I am almost there. I have my days of sadness but the good days are coming more and more to me. As I get to know each part of me and heal them my physical health will even begin to improve. It's hard to believe as I am still sick a lot but in the past and growing up I was chronically ill all of the time with some kind of ailment. Was in the hospital more than any other kid that I knew from being sick and my medical records resembled a tome. Now my records are magazine thin. Yes, I am getting there every day so to anyone who is reading this and is DID please don't lose hope. It can be a long drawn out battle for years but it does get better! Hang on to HOPE and make it your mantra!
