Tonight Karen took on a double shift, meaning she worked at the vocational Day Program from 8 am - 4 pm and then went directly to a group home for Deafblind adults from 4 to 11 pm. This shift involves showering clients. For the first time, a system member whose identity we are unsure of became triggered. They briefly overtook the body and shared flashes of a shower, olfactory, and body memories. Karen has been working this shift on and off for a couple of months. I am unsure as to what triggered this episode. Anya and I have not been able to connect with the aforementioned system member, but are aware of their terror.

Life with DID

When many system members are triggered so that the bed is gradually filled with a plethora of stuffed animals, blankets, pillows, various self soothe items, and of course the laptop and headphones that there is barely room for the physical body.

Every multiple is different. Every alter is unique. No two systems function the same.

And that is extraordinarily beautiful.


Just because your system doesn’t function like another doesn’t mean the other is ‘faking.’
