Welcome to the Discussing Dissociation blog. I’m glad you’ve made it here.
Thanks for coming!
One of the best features of this blog platform is having the free eBook available for anyone that would like a copy of it.
Awhile back, you asked me why I thought it was so easy to see DID. I decided that was a fantastic question, and decided to answer it. Turns out…. it was a much more complicated answer than I could say quickly, so into an eBook it went!
Have you been able to find your copy of 101+ Ways to See DID — Dissociative Identity Disorder Described ?
A few people have had a little trouble finding their way to the PDF download so let me give you a few tips about how to find it.
1. To get the free eBook, you’ll need to sign up for it on the email list.
As you look around the Discussing Dissociation website, you’ll see numerous places to sign up for it. Look at the top right corner of the page, look at the bottom of every post. You probably also saw an exit pop-up that gives you the opportunity again, in case you forgot. (Not that dissociative folks would ever forget…. lol).
After you include your email, and click submit, you’ll see a page saying Thank You for your Interest – Please Confirm Your Request. The first two paragraphs of that page says this:
I’m absolutely delighted you decided to join me. I think it’s fantastic that you are interested in learning more about Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). Thank you. 🙂
I have received your request for information, but Aweber, (my email service provider), asks that each request be confirmed by email.
2. Check your inbox for an email from Discussing Dissociation.
Look for an email that says: Confirm your request for information.
Check your inbox first, but remember, especially if this is the first time you’ve received an email from you, you may need to look in your Promotions tab, or your Spam folder, or any other of the other weird places that new emails may go.
You could try searching your email for Discussing Dissociation to find it if you don’t see it easily.
This particular email is boring. It’s required by Aweber, my email service provider, and right now it starts with these paragraphs:
Hi! I received your request for information but before I can send you my free report, I need you to confirm your request. Click the link below to confirm.
CONFIRM BY VISITING THE LINK BELOW:
*** If you previously signed up for the Discussing Dissociation email list back on the original site, even if that was years ago, you should have received an email this week starting at this point in the sequence. I’m sorry to see that you didn’t get the first more friendly letter (not sure how that happened), but I wanted to reach out to each one of you. This email would have been sent to you as the former Discussing Dissociation WordPress email list was imported this week into my new email server, Aweber.
In case you weren’t aware that the new site was up, I wanted you to receive your own invitation for the free eBook as well.
However, some of those emails have been there for years, and it was high time to confirm who was still interested in receiving ongoing information from DiscussingDissociation.com .
If you were quicker than me, and if you had already signed up again on this new site, you would not have received an additional “new confirmation” email as your would have already been confirmed via Aweber. Thanks for that. 🙂
3. You’ll see a link in your email. Click on that.
Click the link above to give us permission to send you information. It’s fast and easy! If you cannot click the full URL above, please copy and paste it into your web browser
It’s very important to click on that link, because it takes you to the next page where you will get your free download of the ebook.
So yes….. !
Confirm your email, please and thank you!!
4. You’ll see a new page, “Thank You — Your Email Confirmation was Successful”
This is a very important page to get to because it confirms to me that you are you, and that you aren’t a spammer or a bot. 🙂 See, it’s all good, because this very important information is meant for YOU, not for spammer land.
Don’t click out of this page!
Read on down the page, and there will be helpful information about how to get the Discussing Dissociation emails into a visible place in your email inbox. You won’t have to keep searching for my emails if you follow the instructions provided. You can teach my emails how to find your inbox.
5. Find the image at the bottom of the Email Confirmation page.
Getting to the email with the image is enormously important.
Because…. when you click on the image that looks like this….
THAT is where you’ll get your download for the free eBook,
101+ Ways to See DID — Dissociative Identity Disorder Described
Click on the picture.
Don’t exit the page — click on the picture.
Be sure sure sure you click on the picture before you close this page.
Did I remember to tell you to click on the picture on the Email Confirmation page?
Please click on the picture in the Email Confirmation page.
You’ve seen this picture scattered around this blog, on Facebook, on Twitter…. It’s because this is the image that represents the eBook itself.
When you click on the picture in the email you got from me, the download for the 20 page PDF will automatically start. Yay!
6. Check the area of your computer where downloads go to find your eBook.
Open it up, and voila! There you go!
Your PDF eBook has 20 pages of information, graphics, and visual metaphors showing what life looks like for folks who have Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Look through it, have some time to read and think.
It may look simple, in some ways, but every single item listed is actually quite a complex situation, all on its own. There is really nothing very simple about being DID.
ALSO — PLEASE NOTE:
If you are using a phone / mobile device — you will likely need to download a PDF-reader app for your phone in order for the download of the 101+ Ways to See DID to work properly.
7. Be sure to save your eBook to your computer!
You might want to look back again, and again at this material.
Keep it for a reference.
Remind yourself that you are very very normal for feeling what you feel when you struggle with these things.
8. Be sure to COMMENT here on the Discussing Dissociation blog.
