Hi, hi hi — how are you today?
I’m feeling a bit silly, as you can see in the picture, and I’m trying out something new today.
I’ve made a new little contact form with a few questions, and I’d like to use that, so I can hear more from you! You don’t have to use this form, but hey — I’m proud of it, so I’m putting it right here at the top of the page. 🙂
How is this blog about Dissociative Identity Disorder working for you?
Even my life gets far too crazy sometimes. I’m sure most of you can relate to that feeling.
Sometimes I think I should be writing for soap operas instead of writing for a blog! It seems I have more than enough weird life material to submit to “Days of Our Lives”! Feel free to check out some of the stories and links on my About Me Page if you don’t know what I’m referring to.
Maybe I could get a job on a soap opera’s creative writing team….
But no, no, no. Wait. Wait. I’m supposed to be a blogger.
A mental health blogger.
More specifically, I’m a clinically-trained, mental health professional blogger who writes about Dissociative Identity Disorder, trauma, abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, mind control, and all sorts of life issues and treatment issues relative to Dissociative Disorders.
And I blog about these topics because as a Clinical Social Worker, I started working with people with DID (then called MPD – Multiple Personality Disorder) in the 1980’s. That’s a very long time ago! I’ve met hundreds of dissociative trauma survivors, and learned a whole lot from each and every one of you. (Thank you for that.)
So here’s the thing.
I’ve had to make some major life changes in order to shift a whole list of things around in my life. Don’t really want to go into all that right now, but needless to say, the part of my life-plan that matters to you is that I will be busy on updating this blog in the upcoming months.
I have been thinking about this for quite some time, and I have a zillion new ideas, and lots of hopes and plans to implement some very much needed changes. I want to improve the educational options for all DID survivors, and to make this blog more of an active resource in lots of ways.
So that’s a lot of talk without many specifics.
Because I’m not quite ready to spill the beans yet. 🙂
Needless to say, I’ve already been working on e-books, and more videos, and revamping my approach to this blog.
Because Discussing Dissociation has had well over a million views, and it is high time to recognize it as the valuable resource that it is.
Because hundreds — sometimes thousands — of you come here every single day to read, whether I’m writing or not, and that kind of loyalty deserves respect and consideration.
Because there is oodles and gobs to say about Dissociative Identity Disorder, how to recognize it, how to treat it, how to help the people who suffer with it, and how to live with it in an effective, manageable way.
Because you all have asked me, repeatedly, over and over, again and again, to present more, to write more, to provide community support, to cover more topics, to explain this, to expand on that, etc, etc, etc.
I hear you.
You’re here, and reading. And you want or need a little more than articles to read.
I can do that.
And here’s the plan.
To expand Discussing Dissociation in such a way that it is even more informative, helpful, interesting, challenging, encouraging, fun, supportive….
So here’s my commitment to you, and all DID trauma survivors, their loved ones, and their mental health professionals:
Yes, I’m willing to put the time into developing this resource.
Yes, I’ve got the information many of you are looking for.
So okay. Let’s do this thing.
And my Dissoci-ACTION Questions for you are:
What would you like to see here at Discussing Dissociation?
Would you be willing to join an email newsletter and receive emails from me?
Would you be interested in having videos and podcasts covering a multitude of topics?
Would you be interested in workbooks, e-books, and other “you CAN do this at home” materials?
Would you be interested, as a clinical therapist, to learn more about how to work in the field of Dissociative Disorders?
Would any of you be willing to pay for some of the specialized resources I can provide, and to contribute financially to the costs of building such an expansive resource?
Would you be interested in developing a greater sense of community around this blog, in some way or fashion? (I’m still thinking on the “how-to” specifics about that one).
Does any of that interest you?
Because it definitely interests me. And I’m hoping the sounds of that interests many of you.
SO…. if you have thoughts and comments, or ideas and suggestions, I’d be happy to hear from you.
Feel free to write a comment in the normal way at the bottom of the page, or use the contact form inserted at the top of the page.
The first place to start is my hearing from you.
Please let me know what you think — how could this blog work for you???
As always, I wish you the best in your healing journey.
