In late night web wanderings, I found the following video by sidian3. She is a person with Dissociative Identity Disorder, and included “MPD/DID” in her title. I purposely excluded that designation here in my title because her message is valid for and needs to be heard by any survivor of child abuse, including multiples. She speaks in generalities, so I do not consider this video to be triggering. There may be exceptions, but if you’re in a bad place, you really need to hear this. It’s empowering.
She speaks to the idea that many times in the healing process it’s so hard you believe it will kill you. It’s overwhelming, and you think about giving up. Her message is: you won. Don’t give up now. Important powerful stuff that child abuse survivors need to hear, and a promise to be made that must be honored.
For whatever annoying reason, I cannot get the video to embed here. Go to MPD/DID Promise Me You Will Be Here Tomorrow (youTube).
