everyones entitled to their own opinions, like “mario kart isnt good” or “i do not favor the color green”, but youre not entitled to thinking im undeserving of basic human rights, and youre not entitled to the belief that because of someones identity (whether it be sexual, racial, cultural, gender, or anything else) they deserve to be harmed. you are not entitled to be oppressive. this isnt something you can disagree with, because it isnt an opinion, i am merely stating facts
Thank you so much! =]
You defintaly made our night! I hope you are doing well!
I know I am very, very lucky to have the system I do. I love them with all of my heart and don’t know what I would do without any of them.
I am also super lucky to have such amazing people, like you, that support me so much. I really have no-way to repay such kindness.
Thank you so, so,so much!
Thank you so very much for watching!
Actually, I don’t think it was. As I was young I think that they thought it was just normal as far as parents and relatives go. My mother and I were talking the other day about how Kiki & I have different eye prescriptions. The doctors thought that I was lying on my tests when I was little because they were so different.
Co-conscious is when more than one alter can see what is going on. They are both aware. I like the analogy of the body being a car- for co-con then both people are in the front of the car, in the divers and passenger seat. They can both see what is going on but only the driver can control what is going on.
For our inner-world I personally cannot go into it. It is a place just for the others. It does depend on each system though. =]
Awwee! I know he’ll be really excited to see this tonight.
Thank you so much you guys!!! You are so awesome! <3
We hope you guys are doing well!
Hello! Thank you for watching!
That’s correct, when my alters are out I don’t remember what they have done unless we’re co-con. My husband-to-be helps us all out a lot by telling us what everyone has been up to. =]
That is a really, really good question that I wish I had the answer to myself.
With my nephew, Mason, he sort-of caught on himself that I sometimes wasn’t me, but someone completely different. He just took that as is, and since then has been happy to know and spend time with everyone differently. He likes some of us more than others but it works well. When he is old enough to understand I will explain in in detail and I think that is the same way that it will work for Hachi. =]
A subscriber mentioned that even if I didn’t tell Hachi, he would still notice and I think that is right on the nail. When the time is right, we’ll explain to him what DID means and what it is. =]
Hello! I apologize so deeply for the delay in response. I’ve been up for a while and have been just out in spurts! =]
- Kyokyo is doing pretty well with the pregnancy I think. I know that he loves Hachi and that means a lot. I know he just pretends that Hachi movements are gas to deal with fetal movement. He wears his big clothes and will typically just sit or lay down in the bed with a bunch of blankets over him. He has been finding ways to cope.
- No, I didn’t. Finding out what I had, what it was called, and getting diagnosed was huge for me because I finally started to understand what I had. What made me different, after believing for so long that everyone had others like I did. Finding out that not everyone has what I have was a shock but now I am doing so much better. =]
- If we are co-conscious than more than one person can see what is going on, but we are not very skilled in that department. Kiki seems to be the one who can be co-con the easiest.
- I go into this space that is just me. It feels like I’m floating in bubble. Sometimes it can feel like sleeping to me =].
- Sometimes I’ll feel really rested but then if the body is tired than I will right way get super tired and pass out.
- She has before when I was in middle school, I believe and maybe a few times in high school. To me, it’s super embarrassing when people tell me about it because I know that they have to watch over her like she young girl that she is- which I’m sure can be a hassle to others. Arora has a terrible case of Agoraphobia so she tends to not come out much if she has to interact with outside. Our room is her safe-spot and she stays there. Aaron, and family, are trying to work with her on it, to help her, because we want her to be able to go out and experience life outside of four walls.
- He was happy for me. =] He was scared on what it may mean for him when it came to coming out, being intimate, along with other things, but he was so supportive. I am very lucky to have such an amazing guy in my life.
Thank you again for the wait! I hope I answered all of your questions. =]
It’s pretty common for people to use disability metaphors like “That guy is crazy!” or “This weather is so bipolar” without giving it a second thought. It’s important to realize how these words and metaphors can affect people with disabilities and perpetuate stigmas surrounding mental health. If you’ve never thought about the impact these words can have, you’re in luck because this chart provides some common disability metaphors and easy alternatives!
ps. Special thanks to m-arkiplier for inspiring me to create this graphic! (and for his permission to use his post) For more info on why it’s important to be conscious of the metaphors we use, check out this HuffPost article ”10 Reasons to Give Up Ableist Language.”
