Detailed, intense DID System Work done during the most emotional and difficult times of the year can lead to incredible steps in your healing. Use those painful triggers to your advantage — let them help guide you to the internal system areas where your insiders need help and healing. Yes, you are hurting, right now.

Thank you for addressing this side of DID. I have found your articles very helpful. The only other input I’ve had is a great Trauma Therapist who has been helping us to become whole. This is a hard holiday. Most people I’ve run across that understand DID don’t know how to relate when I bring up the SRA side of it. My trauma included everyone of the caretakers in my world. So feeling safe has been very hard. The body memories make it so hard. And all the input from all my parts get overwhelming. It seems like we get triggers coming from everywhere. I thank you for reminding me that this will get better.
