Will I ever be stable?

this is a question going around in my head today. i keep wondering. will i ever be stable? will i get better as time passes, or will i just get worse? its a tough question to answer, I guess no one can really tell me what will happen as regards my mental illnesses. but i worry. did and complex ptsd are severe mental illness, i worry in time to come what might become of us? right now we are doing everything we can to make a life for ourselves. i know that. i dunno guess im just being introspective today. thinking too much. not like i dont do that often.

  1. I know that others with MPD have assimilated all (or most) of their personas into a single through a lot of therapy. I think wanting o do so is probably the biggest determinate of whether you accomplish it or not. Do what is healthy for YOU. Talk to your therapist or counselors about it.


  2. This is a tough question and I suppose many of us would like to know the answer for ourselves. I guess, looking at how you’re ding now and how much you’re doing for your well-being, that you’re only going to get better, however as you said no one can know it for sure, and there are better and worse times for everyone.


  3. Yes I know those thoughts too because life with DID and PTSD is a constant struggle. Sometimes I even dont know if my therapist thinks that we will make it and this sometimes fills me with a terrible fear. What if our struggle is in vain? Then I try to concentrate on the next step and one day after the other. Dont think too far ahead as we cannot know what it will be like. I like the bible verse that EACH DAY has enough of its struggles so we should NOT WORRY.


  4. Stay in today. That is all we have. Are you stable today? Are y’all in agreement, today? Remain present and work on today. Daily growth adds up so quickly we tend to not realize our progress.
    I often wonder myself but I have to remind myself to stay in the now and it generally helps me focus on my progress rather than my future.
