Is it normal amongst DID/OSDD systems to not remember a majority of childhood but also have small snapshots where you vividly remember these tiny things, like they're completely random tidbits, but you remember them clearly?
Yes, that is very common in those with DID/OSDD.
Using myself as an example, my first memory was around 10 years old, there is nothing before that and still big chunks after that too.
Despite this I have extremely detailed memories of random things. I could, for example, tell you exactly what my partner was wearing, what she drinking, who she was with etc when I first met her and that was 9 years ago. Yet I can’t remember much more recent events.
That’s just one example but there are also more mundane things that for whatever reason I remember well.
Last night I was talking to my therapist about how I don’t like saying the actual word therapist, rather I refer to her as “my person” when talking to other people. I told her I don’t know why, I just seriously get very uncomfortable saying the word. Other people can, I just can’t.
I also told her that I don’t like thinking of myself as her patient, or being referred to as a patient, because I don’t believe I am sick. I said that it’s weird to think of her as a doctor, because I associate doctors with other things, not emotions. But I can refer to a psychiatrist as a doctor. Just not her, or any other psychologist who legitimately has a doctorate.

Many people already know about this channel but I thought I would mention it just in case anyone was looking for something different (and perhaps a bit more interactive) to look at: Leornende Eald Englisc!
Cefin posts regular videos on grammar, vocabulary or random tidbits about Old English, I definitely recommend checking him out!
hello world - my name is EJ, and i’m super hyped to be here at idolkrp for the first time ever! i have lots of muse just about to spill over, and i look forward to writing and getting to know you all soon. you can check out “about lee taehyun 101″below the cut (or for more specifics, here and here), and hit this post with a like (if i don’t get to you on my own anyway lol) for some good ole plotting fun. i apologize that i don’t have any plot lines written down on paper, but i promise you they’re alive and floating around in my head. k thx fam!
So what I think I’m gonna do with Alex is turn this purely into a character development blog. That means no more RPs are to be done here.It’ll be more me gathering resources for him, posting art of him, and dumping random tidbits of information here and there.
It’s always been really hard for me to write replies for RPs for him anyway, and I’ve grown tired trying to generate enough interest in him for interactions, so I’m foregoing interactions entirely.
He’ll still have what relationships he does have with other characters (ok, like… the one character lol) because those relationships have all been pretty developed outside of tumblr, but that’s kind of it.
So. I make art sometimes and occasionally show it here. I’ve decided to make an Instagram just for my art, with insight into my creative process and a bunch of random tidbits about working in science (since that is a major one of my inspirations for subject matter.)
So if you’re interested, check out @special.k.arts
