People with DID have great difficulty remembering personal information. Each of their personalities may be experienced as if it has a personal history, a self-image, and an identity. This book offers practical strategies for coping with the condition.

Review:

"This book will be a valuable tool not only for those working at living with DID/MPD but also for family, friends, therapists and others seeking to understand and support these interesting and complex people. Tracy Alderman and Karen Marshall have delivered not only a practical guide full of useful exercises and activities, but also a refreshing and delightful look at the healing process through the eyes and voices of the 'little ones.' The perspective of the 'dissociated identities' brings the experience alive and may change the way DID is viewed by many." --Pamela M. Badger, M.S., M.F.C.C., therapist and member of the International Society for the Study of Dissociation

From the Author:

Learning to live as a person with DID presents challenges.
When I first realized that I had MPD I was embarrased and ashamed. I knew that if anyone found out I would lose my job and friends. I withdrew from friends for a long time because I didn't know what to tell them. I spent years in therapy trying to learn how to live with the impact of my abuse. After several years with one therapist I realized that I was not helping myself I was hurting myself. The therapist understood how to work with people healing from child-abuse but not those who were MPD. I read everything around on MPD to try and understand what would help me live my life better. There were many books but none that talked about day to day issues. I did find a therapist that helped me grow and heal. She was a fantastic guide who helped me gain the skills I needed to live and enjoy life. I also realized that I didn't need to be ashamed of being myself. It has surprised people around me to know that I live with DID/MPD - but only when they first find out.:) My partner Tracy and I wrote this book so that people who have DID/MPD can realize that there are ways to heal. Also to educate those who know people with DID/MPD about what it is like to live with DID/MPD so that they can understand a little bit better. It is amazing how much sense someone makes if you realize that he or she is a person with DID/MPD. It is not an easy journey for anyone involved, family members, friends, partners etc. We know that everyone has a different healing path. Our hope is that this book will make it a little easier. For those who have DID/MPD remember you survived the worst, now you get learn how to live. It is a hard journey, and remember it is also fun. Living with DID is also entertaining if you allow yourself to laugh and enjoy life.
