I have some fantastic fabulous fun facts to pass along today.
Did you know…..
10,000 Comments have been Posted on Discussing Dissociation
Last week, we did it. We reached 10,000 comments on this blog! Isn’t that amazing?!! I think it’s incredible, and it’s a genuine accomplishment for us all.
This shows the beautiful community that we have grown here together. It shows how kind and supportive you have been with each other. It shows how much interest there is in Dissociative Disorders, and how much need the world has for solid information about Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). Together, we’ve done that. We’ve created an abundantly helpful DID resource!
I think the comments are the gold on this blog. The wealth of information you have shared with each other, the kindness and support offered, the encouragement and understanding ….. all that is completely amazing and THANK YOU for your active participation. This blog would not be the same without all the Community Comments. You’ve been GREAT! You’re amazing, and thank you for sharing!
How many of those 10,000 comments belong to you and your system?
Or… wait … Have YOU made a comment here?
Are you one of the readers who hasn’t yet made a comment? There are plenty of readers who read, but don’t comment. This is okay — I’m glad you’re here in whatever way you are comfortable. I do hope you read lots of the comments, because many of them are stellar!
Please know — you are invited to comment on ANY blog article — no matter how new or old it is. Any new comment brings those additional topics and issues back to the surface, and allows new discussions to begin with whoever is reading the blog that week. Besides, most all the articles written here discuss topics that are relevant to DID survivors ANY time they read them!
Remember, when you comment here on Discussing Dissociation, you can use a nickname, your system name, a made-up name, a non-name. Your privacy is important, so please select a name that protects you. I genuinely prefer folks to NOT use their legal name, especially not your full name. A first name is less worrisome. But even still… you can use whatever name you want, so it’s up to you, but I do hope you choose a nickname to use for posting comments.
And maybe some of you are waiting to comment in the soon-to-be-open Discussing Dissociation Community Forum. In our 10-question survey, having added privacy was an important motivator for joining the Forum, so maybe just maybe, we’ll get to know more of you when those Forum doors swing open wide. And YES! That’s happening SOON!
400 Articles have been Posted on Discussing Dissociation
Well…. I have more articles I need to write, and so yes, of course, there are more to come, but it’s exciting to announce to you that also, as of last week, there are now 400 articles available on this site.
Have you read them all?
If you are interested in seeing what all has been written through the years, the List of All Articles has the titles / links listed in chronological order.
If you want information about a certain topic, use the search feature in the right hand column. Or try mousing over or clicking on any of the 15 tabs found around the teal-colored “Discussing Dissociation” header at the top of every page. Click on the various words (aka the tabs) to see an additional 50+ drop down tabs organized into topics and categories.
I certainly haven’t written about everything, but between the 10,000 comments and those 400 articles, we’ve definitely covered a lot of territory around here!
Maybe someday I’ll turn these articles into a book but for now, please enjoy them and learn from them as the free resource that they are.
The 10-year Anniversary for Discussing Dissociation is in December 2018
Did you know that Discussing Dissociation will be having it’s 10-year anniversary next month, in December 2018? YEP — almost 10 years! WOW WOW WOW ten times over!!
What are we going to do to celebrate? Because of course, we have to do something fun and special…. What should we do?
I have some ideas — what thoughts do you have?
One of my ideas is doing a series another artwork series, showing 10 DID Survivor Artworks. What do you think about that?
I have some other ideas as well — to be discussed later! 😀 I’m interested in hearing what ideas you might come up with.
And how many of you have been reading here since the first year? The blog started in 2008, but you know… those last days of December barely count as a full “year”. So…. to be fair, let’s say since the year 2009.
Has anyone been reading at Discussing Dissociation since December 2008 or anywhere in 2009??? Anyone who has been reading here that long is automatically AWESOME in my eyes!
I’m glad you are here TODAY!
TODAY is the best day to be here, because TODAY is the closest to all the exciting new things about to happen…. So much more is coming to Discussing Dissociation. Never a dull moment around here.
The DD Community Forum is happening ….
The second Bear Story, about ElleBear, is on it’s way …
And even more ideas are developing too. I have more ideas each and every year, so there’s no running out of new stuff here!
Most of all, thanks for reading, and I so very deeply appreciate your interest.
How about another 10 years — will you still be around??!!
I hope so! Let’s keep on this road together!!
Wishing you the very best in your next 10 years of healing,
