Best Tweets for Trauma Survivors (week ending 03/12/10)

Best Tweets for Trauma Survivors is a weekly Friday feature. My selections are entirely subjective, and I know it will never be possible to include every great resource tweeted. But I can try! I’ve personally read all tweeted links, and believe them to be of great value.

Disclaimer: I am in no way responsible for content found on any other website. Stay safe, and don’t follow links if you believe you might be triggered by them. Also, I will not be re-checking links from older Best Tweets posts, and if the site’s archived URL is different from the one I’ve provided here, you may need to do a search on their site.

Please add your candidates for Best Tweets For Trauma Survivors in the comments.

    Hi Sara,

    just trying to find others out there. I’m on the other side of the DID journey. I’m helping my wife through it.

    Take care.

      Hi Sam,

      There are many vibrant DID communities on the Web. But specifically for the spouse/SO of a DID survivor, check out Jeff Vineburg’s “Significant Other’s Guide to Dissociative Identity Disorder”. This has been on the web at least 10 years and is excellent. You can find the original at http://www.op.net/~jeffv/so1.htm .

      I know I would not be where and who I am today without the love and strength of my hubby these last 15 years.

      Let me know if I can point you in any other directions.

      Take good care of you, too!
