Special Request: If you feel this Dissociation Blog Showcase is of value, please add it to your Blogroll so others may benefit by finding it. Thanks! Photo Credit
This is an alphabetized list of blogs written by people who experience dissociation. These blogs are not required to be exclusively about dissociation — because we are all much more than the fact that we dissociate. But dissociation plays a role in how we view life, how we make everyday decisions, and how we see ourselves. We are enriched by amazingly open and courageous writers amongst us. I’m providing a showcase for them.
IMPORTANT: Please keep your own safety in mind when reading any of these blogs. Not all contain trigger warnings, and material may be graphic or triggering.
My first round of reviewing blogs included those which explicitly discuss dissociation and its implications for everyday life, a dissociative diagnosis, or a therapy process dealing with dissociation. When unsure, I erred on the side of not including it here. I also excluded any blogs which require a password.
I will soon be adding separate sections for general information sites which address dissociative issues but technically are not blogs, and a section for blogs by trauma therapists who I believe advance the conversation about dissociation in ways which benefit us all.
If your blog is not included here, and you want it to be, please email me at sarah.e.olson AT gmail DOT com. I personally review every blog added to the index. Likewise, if your blog is included here, and you wish to opt out of participating in this showcase, that is your absolute right. Send me an email to let me know your preference.
And lastly, please help me keep this showcase up to date; write to me if any links break, or if you find typos. Thanks!

Discussing Dissociation Kathy Broady, LCSW, blogs extensively about all things “dissociation”, and while not a first person account, her work certainly merits inclusion here, as the first exception to my rule.
Don’t Call Me Sybil [Currently set to “private”.]
IDENTITYBREAKS — Not updated for awhile, but subtitle refers to living with both Dissociative Identity Disorder and Altzheimer’s Disease.
It’s All Psychological — a team blog about mental health issues; Lisa blogs about DID/MPD. I love the URL: (focushahaha)!
Kim Noble Not a blog per se, but a multiple’s art exhibitions.
MY LIFE WITH A MULTIPLE — A rare significant other’s perspective. [Currently set to invite-only.]
PTSD: A SOLDIER’S PERSPECTIVE – A true resource site written with heart, insight, and compassion for anyone who is or loves a member of our armed forces. Their trauma arises out of a completely different context than that of child abuse survivors, but the parallels in how one’s mind reacts and adapts will be completely familiar. We can learn from each other.
REASONS YOU SHOULDN’T FUCK KIDS — Note: If the word offends you, don’t read this blog. But know that she uses it purposefully, and you are missing something special.
Sanctuary and Serenity — (formerly a group at MSN that closed; writings about DID and other mental health concerns)
STUCK IN THE SAND – PTSD and College Another war veteran’s blog.
THE FORGOTTEN WOUNDED CHILD (Includes content warning.)
The Multiplicity of Me (Includes content warning.)
We Are Survivors of Child Abuse and Neglect Part of a much larger survivor site, link is to 21 part discussion of DID issues by an integrated multiple. Advocates for acceptance of DID and diagnosis by clinicians instead of (still) saying it doesn’t exist; concerned that DID will be written out of DSM-V.
