well, my name is Shae and I have the honor of welcoming you to our pages.
They were set up to allow all of us to dabble in our own creativity, letting
you get to know a little bit about us, while hopefully passing on a little
I keep saying "we" and "our"
because although we share the same body, all of us are very unique women,
with different ideas, values, and personalities. You see we were
diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder/Dissociation Identity Disorder
approximately 5 yrs ago. This means, because of severe abuse at a
young age, we have 'split' into several different people, each having their
own roles to perform, each 'created' to cope with various situations that
we were forced to be in. That is the simplest definition I could
come up with, it is actually much more complicated, and every system
has their own methods of dealing with their own circumstances.
Many people believe that
people who are MPD, are just faking it to seek attention. To those
I always ask, why? Why would anyone voluntarily wish to lose time,
suffer flashbacks, emotional distress, severe headaches, guilt, and all
the other things that come with MPD? As a matter of fact, many
of those who suffer from MPD refuse to believe it, we would much rather
be diagnosed with some other mental disease, something familiar and easily
cured, something more easily accepted than MPD. Many feel like burdens
on their loved ones, and like they never will fully fit into 'society'.
As you will see, each of
us have our own different likes/dislikes, quirks, and roles. Some
of us feel love, others pain. Heck, one of us even likcs peanut butter
and pickle sandwiches, she knows who she is, while the rest of us think
that they are disgusting. And as I said above this site is to allow
us all to show the 'world' just who we are. We all hope you enjoy
these pages and the links we have provided.
