so i asked mom if she’d like to come to our did reassessment which will be happening on december 8th. she said no. she said she would not be abel to cope. and i have to respect that. as hard as it is for me to hear. as hard as it is that she would rather not know too much about our did diagnosis. i think its more about her being in a room full of professionals and not knowing what to say. they’ll be discussing my treatment going forward. she did not say this but i think she might feel she would not have any input into it. so she’s not coming. i am sad about that. i really did want her to be part of it. i reached out and i offered, its all i can do. she has to take the next step and she simply isnt ready for that yet.

  1. I’ve heard of mothers refusing to get involved in DID situations and I think it has a lot to do with their deep-down feeling somehow responsible for their child’s problem. It’s irrational reasoning, but some moms are like that. Perhaps one day she’ll face up to the idea that there is more than just Shirley floating around inside you. there are still a lot of people who don’t even believe in Did at all.

  2. Oh, I feel how it must hurt you. I’m really sorry that she said no. That’s sad. But it’s her decision so no one can force her. It’s a pity she doesn’t want to get to know your diagnosis better to be able to help you more. But anyway, it’s good that you asked her.


      1. I wish she could be there to be a part of it and listen and try to understand but yes, i suppose she cannot handle it. And yet you can. Which i guess is the part that makes me sad is when someone else cannot handle what we go through daily.
