I feel frustrated or scared when I see people say things like:
Anyone who says they have D.I.D. without trauma/existential dread/dysphoria/losing time is someone id be wary of. (http://phineaslightfoot.tumblr.com/post/90960265714/so-now-that-im-a-bit-more-calm)
basically saying that without those things you probably don't have DID….
I’m not saying I do because again I don’t have a diagnosis! but it’s the only damn thing that makes sense.
I have no remarkable trauma…emotional abuse yes… but unless I’m completely missing something from my memory there is nothing I would call trauma.
I also don’t have missing time…Any bad memory lapses I blame on my ADHD (which is diagnosed)
Dysphoria? I don’t know how to categorize that in with dissociation. I’m always uncomfortable in my body. It’s just become normal. I’m not sure if that’s even what they mean.
And what’s existential dread..?
I just read things where people are like “if someone doesn’t have X then they are faking” and In my head I’m just b-b-b-but…
I don’t *want* to have DID I just want a fucking explanation for what’s been going on in my head forever.
diagnosis only helps if it helps you get better just gotta remember that Autumn… doesn’t matter if other people don’t believe you or whatever. as long as you’re getting better. <3
