Hey hello !
How are you?! I hope you are doing well after such a busy holiday season.
I’ve got some fantastic news for you.
I’m so pleased to say that we are heading into some very exciting times for Discussing Dissociation. This New Year will be bringing lots of new opportunities for healing and support for folks with DID. I’ve got some uniquely cool things planned!
First …. I’ll be introducing the Bears of Hiddenton Point, starting with the Saddest Little Bear.
The Saddest Little Bear, an original story by Distance Ness, will be available very soon, hopefully by February 2018. This is the first book in the series, as there are several stories about Hiddenton Point Bears.
The Saddest Little Bear is written specifically for people with Dissociative Identity Disorder by someone who exactly understands living life with DID. I didn’t write the story, but I’ve added pictures, some helpful therapeutic applications, and of course, created a big ol‘ list of Dissoci-ACTION questions. Plus, I’ve made a few videos about the Saddest Little Bear.
Yep, you saw that right. Videos!
The Saddest Little Bear Story Pack has all kinds of good stuff to enhance your understanding of the principles taught in the story. It’s full of helpful hints teaching you how work with your own DID system. I am very sure that if you apply what you learn, you’ll be much better equipped to work with some of your insiders.
What do you think you could learn from the Saddest Little Bear?
Why are you feeling so sad, little bear?
Do you think you’ll relate to how he is feeling?
And there’s more, of course.
(What’s next, Kathy, what’s next ?!!)
I’ve noticed this busy busy busy and WONDERFUL the thread:
That thread already has 400 comments in it, from y’all, the readers here at Discussing Dissociation !!
How fantastic is that?!!
What that says to me — PLUS with the numerous requests I’ve received via email and blog comments — is that y’all are very very interested in having safe, supervised, support areas where you can talk together about the struggles and the joys you feel while living with DID.
I understand that, of course. It makes total sense to me. I completely agree that it’s important to safely surround yourself with people who understand what you’re going through. That’s good for healing, good for morale, and good for your health.
Remember Laura the Email Consultant lady???
Well…. we’ve been talking.
We know exactly how important support options are for folks with DID, and we understand the difficulties when there is a LACK of private, safe support. So…..
We are looking into the possibilities of opening a DID Support Forum here at Discussing Dissociation.
It’s very very early days, so I don’t have any details to share about that yet, as I am still exploring possibilities myself. However, I will soon have an Information Page where I’ll describe more what Laura and I are considering, re: Support Options. You will be able to add your thoughts and opinions, and voice your interest at that time.
Look soon for that Info Page coming soon as well.
And ANOTHER thing……
Do you remember back when I mentioned this:
And then you didn’t hear much more about it….. (oooopsie, my bad!)
Well… I didn’t forget, but I am slow! Really sorry about that.
The Kids Time with Kathy Email Course has become something else, because as it turns out, this Course is much, much MUCH bigger than an email course. So…. Kids Time with Kathy is gonna have a slightly new name because it is a much more thorough resource than originally planned. Turns out, I just had so much to say to kids…. !
And I have to say…. this new format is just so cool! Like SUPER cool! I really love it.
It will most definitely be worth the wait.
So SOON….. you’ll soon see a new Information Page about Kids Time with Kathy.
I’ll tell you lots more about it then.
Just know…. it’s still on the way!
That’s LOTS to look forward to !!!
I’ll be working on the Information Pages as quickly as I can, so you can get more information as soon as possible.
In the meantime, I hope you are doing well, I hope you had a safe and happy holiday season, and please know that I am thinking about you every single day.
Pop by and say hello whenever you can.
I wish you the best in your healing journey.
