I do not care anymore what people say or think of me. I love who I am and what I have accomplished in myself and in my life. I will not modify my life or my behaviors because of others opinions of me. I do not care if anyone harbors negative feelings towards me. That is their problem, not mine. If people took the time to really get to know me they would see I am not some crazed, unstable, mental person they think I am. Having a diagnosis of Dissociative Identity Disorder is not something in which I am ashamed of. I am very intelligent, courageous and strong and my disorder is only a fraction of who I am. I am NOT my diagnosis. I may be different than whatever society deems "normal" but I am still human. I am not some freak of nature. DID is a creative coping mechanism I was fortunate to tap into as a very abused child. It saved my life and it gave me a voice, which will never, ever be silent again! If you don't like me, that is fine. I choose to only surround myself with positive, honest and healthy people. I don't want any unhealthy people in my life. I don't believe in fake compassion or slanderous behavior. I have fought to hard not to fall back into the pit of negativity. I believe in the quote from Bambi....."If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all."
