Mmmm I have a system as well and it's very interesting to hear about others like us. We're currently a system of about 31 I think ?? >.< I just want to know like um... have you told your parents? Cos I'm struggling with even knowing where to start ;;
ye my mom knows quite a bit and my dad officially knows as of today but has unofficially known for awhile. the entire past uhhh15 months has been us trying to be taken seriously by mum and dad and they finally are gettin it so. yea
theres not an easy way to do it. honestly opening up about DID was a million times harder than opening up about my gender or sexuality.
the best thing you can do is teach them using academic and verified sources about what you experience. dont worry about teaching them about individual alters yet they cant wrap their heads around it at first. i had to start PTSD and then explain CPTSD and then from there explain structural dissociation and then confess trauma for half an hour and THEN finally concluded with explaining DID so like. it was a trip man idk.
