If there was a pill to get rid of DID/OSDD, would you take it?
Would I like to get rid of the flashbacks? Oh, hell yeah. Would I like to get rid of the amnesia, partial or full? Again, absolutely. Would I want to get rid of my headmates? Nope! I don’t want to make them sleep or bury them. Well, ok, honestly *sometimes* I do. 😆 But after decades of being a known system, I wouldn’t take that pill. That isn’t to say I’m against fusions – if they happen, they happen – but I don’t want to live my life without my system.
Am I still very covert and slightly ashamed of our disorder? Yes. We’re not “out” to everyone, although we’re becoming more open over time. But I think I’ve finally accepted that being multiple is OK, and no, I don’t think it in itself needs to change.
