Moon Knight triggered TF out of me (trigger/spoiler free)

Postby FinneganThePup » Thu Apr 28, 2022 6:35 pm

I know the DID community has a spectrum of thought when it comes to Moon Knight. There was a lot of people that felt like the show wasn't accurately representing DID well enough, which I totally understand. Personally, me and several of my headmates were really enjoying the show because it was just enough representation to honor some of the positive aspects of this disorder in a somewhat safe and entertaining way, so we didn't really mind too much the sensational/Hollywood flavor to it.

But episode 5....holy $#%^.

I won't go into any triggers or spoilers, but it hit waaaaaaaaaay too close to home in a few different ways. On one hand, I'm really grateful that they portrayed it the way they did. After watching it, my wife turned to me and was just speechless. It really helped her understand a lot of how I feel most days. But on the other hand, it was almost too much representation. It was really, really triggering to see a story that echoed mine in a lot of ways play out on TV. Having myself as well as several alters have a simultaneous meltdown is never fun.

I dunno, I'm still really grateful for this show, and I really want to keep watching it because I freaking love it, but I'm not sure I'll be able to anymore. Anyone have any thoughts or feelings about the latest episode?

If you are watching the show but haven't seen episode five yet, may I suggest treading carefully. Make sure you're in a good headspace or consider watching it with a safe person.

It's on Disney+. At first, I had no idea where the show was going, but later it became clear how deep into the subject material it was going

I've seen a TV ad (briefly shows it amongst other stuff also on the channel) but thought it was a superhero kind of thing like Batman as I don't have Disney +


Is it about DID then?
Host - Yuna-Lee

Yuna is a fusion of Teen/Adult S, Juno and SG (Incan Spirit guide)
Lee is Bobby & Kit fused, seperate 'self' from 'Yuna' but co-hosting.

i started it, but only like ten minutes in. so am not far enough in to say. but i am watching it slowly. maybe I'm being cautious around it. i don't know. but otherwise I think I will be watching it. it looks interesting.

that is an unique issue. i like it when i see a show that mirrors my issues sometimes. But can also totally get the -it feels too close/real feeling.

Be careful. Episode 5 is heavily traumatizing.

Ashe [co-cons with someone not sure been a rough day]

Our parents watched the first two episodes while we were in the room, but I don't remember much because we were writing at the time. My family said it was too confusing and I think it triggered my mom (she has PTSD and I believe she mentioned a therapist diagnosing her with DID but she doesn't talk about it so I'm not sure) I've thought of watching it, but I'm a little apprehensive and yet really want to give it a try. I've seen tiktoks with people with DID going off on it saying its harmful to encourage 'violent main character' as DID individuals, but others saying they liked it. I'll probably give it a try. My understanding from the minimal research I did and the glimpses of the first episode that I remember, is that the violence of the main character isn't because he has DID, but because one of his alters made a deal with the Moon God for something, and he's essentially a superhero or something like that. ( I may be wrong, but that's the impression I got). I'm more likely to give it a try because I love Marvel movies so much. Iron Man 3 helped me understand my mother's PTSD symptoms. (Because my parents never really talk about the side effects and stuff)

What I know about it (because my mother loved comic books) was that Moon Knight is a superhero that was originally back in the day thought to have schizophrenia but later shifted and debated in to DID. Whether this was intentional or just based on the fact that data on mental health in the 80s and 90s was limited and usually wrong or under researched I'm not sure). I never read the comics, but my mom remembers reading them when she was younger (not sure of the age).

We watched moon knight episode on last night and it was really scary. We are going to try to watch episode 2 and see how it goes. I hope it is not as scary. We turned on a cartoon to calm down. We also watched Simons top ten favorite auditions on you tube. it was really beautiful if you havent seen it. It brought tears to our eyes. Cherylann and D.
