We got diagnosed

Postby men0tme » Fri May 15, 2020 8:09 am

Yesterday we talked to our new therapist and she validated us. It's such a incredible feeling, even though terrifying (The host is going to go burry herself in call of duty for days to think about something else ^^) but we feel valid, our system is valid this is such a relief. Now we know we are going to heal. I know there will still be denial, and (very) difficult steps, but we're so grateful for this right now!

So today, we start working on better communication and dissociating less and healing in the future. It felt really good to be heart by this new T who addressed alters directly instead of saying "so.... let's try to remember your traumas and why sometimes you behave like that. Yeah, I know about your "parts" but that's also something every human feel" like the other one :D (also one of us is really happy about being able to openly identify with memes ^^)

Congrats on being Dx'd and being able to start making a legit plan on how to proceed. For us, it was incredibly scary, but also very validating, to like know things were gonna be ok, cuz we had a name to it, a real bonafide like understandable situation... even if most ppl _don't_ understand it. WE could, and we could begin to work on making ourselves and situation better.

I am happy for you, we all are. :)

Hi, thank you for all your answers ! (I should I've come sooner but idk who wrote this here cause I didn't remember it until this morning xD) Yes it is both an incredible relief - finally we know and we were heard, like REALLY listened to by a professional with whom we think we can make progress, and after 8 years seeking for the right specialist, it feels GOOD!^^) but it is also scary, and the T said we'll have to work on my "alter phobia", because I (the host) tend to get scared by them and fail to really communicate with them, which makes switching and dissociation worse. This opens a very scary door, but also this leads to healing, finally! We feel incredibly lucky that we found her!
