Ask about DID

35


35 per unit Virtual OK

I have DID, dissociative identity disorder, which used to be called multiple personality disorder. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be someone with multiple "personalities", or to know someone who switches between selves— girls, boys, adults,— with different sets of memories and perspectives? I/we feel comfortable talking about our experiences. We are committed to being open about how we are, to help dispel myths and misunderstandings which are out there in the media. We asked some friends what it is like having us as a friend, and they said it is like having lots of friends! If you are a kind person, one of our Littles would probably be happy to talk with you. I can answer your questions or we can just chat. (One unit is for a half-hour telephone conversation .)

Training & Qualifications


I have Dissociative Identity Disorder, and I've spoken to groups and educated friends and professionals about DID. I've been on a healing journey with an excellent trauma therapist for 12 years now. I've read a fair amount of the professional literature about DID and have knowledge and experience with complex PTSD and EMDR. I was an administrator on an online DID support group for many years. I'm also writing a memoir giving an inside view of what it is like living with DID. I believe that it is important to talk openly about DID in order to increase understanding.

Availability & Preferences


We can chat here on Simbi or talk on the phone.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Carole Stedronsky

I am an artist and writer. I am 63 years old, although I have lots of playful inner children. My friends say I have taught them how to play.... I've taught improvisational creative process to childre...n and adults, informally, and in classes, with drawing, painting, quilting, and writing. I have a masters in English with an emphasis in creative writing, and I've been in a writing critique group that has been meeting weekly for 25 years. We meet at noon, have lunch together and chat for a half hour, then read, edit and and critique each others' current work. I have published poetry in literary magazines, my chapbook Wolfdream won the Anibiosis Press chapbook contest and I've been nominated as a Pushcart Poet. I'm at a place in my life where I'm working on book projects.... I'm finishing a memoir and book proposal this month (ten years work), and then I will be working on finishing the illustrations for my picture book titled You Are The Artist, to be published by Reflection Press. I play the bodhran (Irish frame drum). After a bad fall from a horse, I have nerve damage and chronic pain and have a purple electric wheelchair (zoom) and a wonderful Golden Retriever service dog named Hazel. I've figured out how to do my creative work (writing, drawing, painting watercolors, creative consulting) from my recliner where I spend most of my time at home (for pain management). Through necessity, I've become quite knowledgeable about pain management through a multi-faceted approach, and that will be another book project. This year I got an outdoor recliner, which is wonderful, because I can sit outdoors and write or read or draw and occasionally throw tennis balls for Hazel. I'm sitting in my outdoor recliner as I write this, under the wisteria, dog, cat, and Japanese maple trees beside me, enjoying the cool summer morning. I'm married to a retired firefighter captain. Our 29-year-old son (who teaches high school physics) and his wife (who is an archeologist) and two Italian greyhounds live three blocks away, and we go on dog walks together in the afternoon or evening. show more
