At last, I finished the Becoming One print edition index, and finalized the print interior and its cover. I just received the proof copy of the book, and it looks great! Setting this edition loose on Amazon will then free me up to start something new! Yeah! It’s been a very long time coming.

Here’s the new Becoming One print cover! If you can’t see the cover in RSS or email, please click through on the blog post title to see it! Thanks to everyone for your ongoing support of my projects!

5 Star Review of “Becoming One” at Glorious Panic!

 

5 star review Becoming One

I’m thrilled to announce a 5 star review of Becoming One over on Glorious Panic blog!

My goal for this book was to share an authentic experience of the healing process, with all of its ups and downs and uncertainties. It’s why nothing is reconstructed “from memory” — it’s all documented. I especially like that Katy went into reading it with some skepticism, because I believe it’s crucial to meet that test — especially with people who live with Dissociative Identity Disorder, and the clinicians who treat them.

“At no point in the book did I feel drowned in either psychology or overtly graphic narratives of abuse. At the same time, neither was sugar coated – it had a feeling of being very real to me.”

Go read the entire review at Glorious Panic blog! Katy also graciously posted this review on both Amazon and Goodreads, and I am grateful!

Happy New Year, and Welcome New Subscribers!

 
 

My 2015 Promise to Myself: Write

Happy New Year to all! And welcome to new subscribers, many of whom I believe must have followed the link from the Resource section of my new ebook Becoming One!

A year ago, I wrote a New Year’s post describing how I intended to act on my “2014 promise to myself: write.” Looking back, I experienced a lot of struggle and self-doubt about that promise — and I still do. I don’t think that will ever change, frankly.

But the success of that promise culminated in the publishing of the Becoming One updated ebook on Amazon on November 19th. That had been a goal for six straight years, and every New Year I’d awaken newly depressed that I had not achieved it, for various reasons, most of them part of that endless internal struggle.

What changed this year is that I accepted the reality of my limitations and doubts, and in doing so was able to move forward anyway. It wasn’t easy, but it was different. I was so thrilled to awaken this New Year’s Day knowing I’d achieved that goal!

My current struggle is in updating the index for the new print version of Becoming One. This index is aging me. ;) But I’m determined, and it will be done. Soon.

My word for 2015, and my new promise to myself: D R E A M

I seldom publicly commit in advance to things that require me to overcome the internal struggles to fulfill them. But I’ve said in some very public online places recently that there will be a followup book titled Becoming One Every Day: Living Purposefully with Dissociative Identity Disorder by the end of this year. (Yikes!) Instead of focusing on the struggle, I’m trying to focus on the adventure of it all. :D

It’s a very big dream of mine, that I’ve longed to fulfill for 15 years. I hope you’ll stick around to see how it turns out. For me, it’s as much about the process as it is about the outcome.

Many thanks again for your support and caring! May we all dream big!

My Q&A at GoodTherapy.org!

 
 

GoodTherapyLogo

The good folks over at GoodTherapy.org invited me to join them for a Q&A session to discuss mental health stigma, and therapy issues pertaining to dissociative identity disorder — and I accepted! :)

I mention how PTSD is becoming stereotyped in that every time a veteran commits suicide or violence against others, the news media connects “PTSD = unstable and violent.” It does a disservice to all veterans, as well as to anyone else diagnosed with PTSD.

I also discuss my therapy process for dissociative identity disorder, especially in the early years of my treatment, and describe what I believe should be the goal as far as “integration” is concerned.

So come on over to Becoming One Every Day: An Interview with Author Sarah Olson, and feel free to join in on the great conversation already ongoing in the comments!
