Thanks guys. I booked a full assessment and a first zoom type appointment.

I cried at one point after being happy. Partially relief and then partially sad that I have to do this...you know like why do I have to be happy about finally getting therapy I wouldn't need if horrible stuff didn't happen. But I didn't let myself stay in that mindset for too long and went to the beach to chill out and appreciate that at least I can afford therapy now.

That is wonderful news! Congratulations!

I can totally relate to your mixed feelings about it. But adjust the zoom focus and look at the bigger picture: you can experience mixed feelings! All at once! And that means you can compare them and also see all the pros and cons of the situation and identify the overlaps. There isn't so much internal splitting going on. You're really moving forward!

Since I've been taking 7.5mg of Aripirozole I have mixed feelings. I used to be "in two minds" or "see at least 3 possible options" now it's mixed feelings no options. It makes life simpler I guess.

I jusr think it's a lot of money to be paying out. That it won't help us and the NHS may refuse to recognise a private assessment so I'm asking them today before this money is spent on something that could be a waste of time.

The NHS is not a fan of DID. You say voices they say schizophrenia. You say you feel differently about the same stuff they say BPD. You say you have sad days and days where nothing bothers you they say Bipolar. You say trauma they say go to trauma therapy. They cptsd and you get less help. It's a really bad joke. Cptsd is as serious as any other just for starters on that lot. So I don't think a specialist DID assessment from a private clinic will hold weight with those egotistical psychiatrists who think they are God.

That's my gripe with it. We could do other stuff with that money.

Also I don't want to be fixed. I think the piece of paper is fine but I don't want to go to therapy. There's enough struggles in life without dredging up the past. We can live happily without it. We know we can. We did it for years. Getting in a close relationship which we hadn't been in for 20 years brought up a lot of stuff, still is. I jusr don't think therapy is the way forward but the piece of paper is ok.

Regarding Batchos book. It's his craziness, his creative process so if he has to watch a film before continuing with chapter 4 then that's his creative process and he has to watch the film (seen in another thread) Karen
