More about me

Take a look at my Treatment Team!

My name is Carol anne.  I am part of a did system. Did stands for dissociative identity disorder.  I also have PTSD posttraumatic stress disorder. I was diagnosed with did in December 2010.
I have been blind since birth. I am 35 years old.
This is a blog about my life, it will mainly focus on therapy and the process of going through psychotherapy, but I will also post some stuff about my life.
I am in college studying IT.  It has its challenges but overall I love it.
You can feel free to contact me or find me on social media.
Thanks for reading.

      1. Anytime I know from first hand experience how relentless, unforgiving the Roller Coaster is Carol Anne.

        I am learning to cope and evolved from my level of understanding in what I have. How its a night stalker like a thief robbing you from your true self.

        I take it Day by Day when I am able to lay to rest I do because I know what awaits me.

        Peace&Love&Strength&Honour always be with you in your good journey.



      2. Thank you Carol Anne it still a lot to absorb never in million yrs I thought what was going on would be this.

        But you know its okay to say no I’m not fine

        I’m surviving at times its relenting tormenting ride that is so surreal.

        But there is no fucking way I will ever surrender to the Storm I will fight until my last breath.

        I rather fighting through brimstone wrath then bow down and be shattered to my knees in disgrace.

        Thank you for the words of inspiration Carol Ann

  3. Hello. My name is Ginny. I am so pleased to have found your blog. Thank you for writing. I think you are really brave to share your life and your therapy.
    I have Borderline Personality Disorder, with periods of psychosis, Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and depression, anxiety and OCD.
    I’m afraid that I don’t know very much at all about dissociative identity disorder. I’m worried I might accidentally say something unhelpful or wrong when I write here in comments because I don’t know a lot about what you’re going through. If I do I’m sorry and please tell me and I’ll try not to do it again!
    I am not diagnosed with an identity disorder. I have periods where I dissociate (this is the word I and my therapists use but it isn’t necessarily the same at all as what you experience and I hope that is not offensive). I lose memory of periods of time and in those periods I can be very cut off, angry and out of control, or impulsive and doing things I would never normally do. I feel like as well as the me that’s what I’m meant to be there’s a very dangerous ‘me’ that’s angry and out of control and paranoid, and a very childish me, screaming and crying and hurting about the abuse and wanting to be cared for. When I was a child I had imaginary people around me who became far too real and in my hallucinations now I have a child with me a lot of the time and I slip away into the imaginary world but it’s no longer voluntary now.
    I didn’t mean to write all that. I’m sorry. Thank you again for sharing your experiences. I’ll enjoy following your blog. I blog too at

    1. hi ginny. it is very nice to meet you. don’t worry, you wont offend me. just be yourself. comment to whatever you feel like commenting to. i’m always happy to have new blog followers. again thank you for commenting. XX


  4. Heya, lady! I followed you for a while and then you moved and I got busy/distracted/crazy, and I lost you! But now I’ve found you again and I’m so glad! (Oh and I’m on a new blog, myself! Come see, please?!) 🙂


  5. At the age of almost 74, I find this interesting. I also think it’s courageous of you to post about this part of your life. We all go through trials and tribulations throughout life. Many of the elderly feel left behind as the world moves faster into the future, yet we have so much to offer. Seeking help is a good thing and being able to vent and not be afraid to inform others what it’s like to suffer from your condition shows you are on the road to taking control. Bless you and others that have posted comments, it proves you are not alone. I will keep all of you in my daily prayers. You sound like a wonderful group of people. Thank you for sharing. ☺☺
