Hey, I'm Alby. I'm the main organizer/mediator in the system and I've been with the host since third grade. The host had an anxiety attack and an argument with her parents and has not fronted for four days straight, leaving me in charge. This isn't healthy for her and she'll stay away as long as she can. Do you know how I could convince/force her to switch back now that we're in a less stressful situation? Sometimes she's even stayed away for months and it's not good for her or us. Thank you!

well, it’s not always too good to force an alter out, but maybe you can try doing the things she likes to do. that might help “pull” her out a bit. for example i have this one game i play that two alters likes and it usually “pulls” them out to at least co-front with me. if you can get her to co-front, you might be able to convince her to fully switch with you.
