Our did reassessment

so yesterday friday we had our did reassessment with the did specialists from the pottergate centre for trauma and dissociation in the UK. it went great. it was not really a reassessment as such but a sort of chat meeting to discuss ways that dr. barry and eileen could help us going forward.
the specialist remy decided that he is going to make a report and then he will sent it on to all 3 of us me, dr. barry and eileen to get our in put, befroe making any recommendations. he said it would be a partnership. i like that idea.
so i got there early yesterday. i was first there. eileen came a little while after i did and we sat together chatting in the waiting room.
then dr. barry and remy came up and remy introduced himself to us. he said he remembered us well which triggered liz because the last time he was here liz was a real bitch to him and so when he said he remembered us very well she was like oh no he remembers me and that sorta triggered her but eileen was able to reassure her.
dr. barry spoke to remy by herself first. he wanted to get a catch up as to how things are now. and have been for the past few years since dr. barry took over our treatment.
then eileen went and spoke with him and dr. barry while we waited in the waiting room. after that eileen came to get us and we went and had an hour and a half long meeting with remy.
that went really well. we talked about the system being active by night, the kids not sleeping, and being up late switching by night etc. remy said its important to allow insiders to have time in the evenings, so that their not active in the middle of the night because they’ve had no time by day that day.
he asked me if we are able to write in a diary, a physical diary, to which i said no, but that we do email one another, and leave each other notes via email.
he said thats a good idea and encouraged us to continue to do that.
we talked about meds and how taking them and complying is hard for us, some of us want to take them, others dont, and in the talking about it it came out that drugs were used during our abuse in other words we were drugged, and so that is why now for us it is hard to be in that position again, and taking some meds reminds certain insiders of being drugged.
dr. barry said that she felt some insiders try to sabbotage thinge things because they are afraid to get well. this upset emily a lot.
eileen said she felt she needed to work more with emily, since emily is the centre of our system, and holds a lot of info regarding other insiders, memories, etc.
so yeah. overall it was good. we got to discuss a lot. and it went well. and we are happy with how it all went.
