Emily and Dr. Barry

hi everyone

its emily. i just got back from our apt with dr. barry. i got to talk to her today. that was nice. i really love talking to her.

i told her how difficult the last few days have been for me and my insiders. i told her about lisa, and how last week she’d been so suicidal and how eileen helped us through that.

we talked about symptoms and therapy in general. we also talked a little about our memories. and about how some insiders cant accept that people would love them and how they find it difficult to accept that they are more than their trauma.

Dr. Barry was very sympathetic. She said its difficult for the insiders. They have a lot to cope with every day. They go through a lot of ver conflicting feelings about so many things.

It was a good conversation. I felt that Dr. Barry really understood us. She does anyway, but today I just felt she was really getting it, really getting how hard things can be for us.

She said despite all that we’re doing amazingly well. She told me she’s proud of us for continuing to cope despite all the difficulties we are having.

I’m glad I got to talk to her today. It felt so good to just be able to tell her things. I felt understood and validated.

butterfly hugs,
Loves you,

Emily
