Yep, you heard it right!
Our DID Community FORUM is ready!
The Community Friendship FORUM is ready!
To be clear, the first half of the Discussing Dissociation Community Forum is ready — the Community Friendship Area.
The Community Friendship Forum is the place that DID survivors have to mingle and talk and share and listen and support and help each other. This is a private, not-visible-in-public forum, where you and your system can talk with other dissociative survivors in the privacy of a membership site that is not visible to the pubic or to search engines.
You will not have to use your legal name for posting, and frankly, I would prefer that you didn’t!
The Community Friendship Forum is a version of peer support. This side of the Forum is a place to build friendly relationships with other DID systems who deeply understand the complexities of your journey through the dissociative healing process. Peers supporting peers, survivors hearing survivors. This level of support is helpful because other DID Systems know what you go through, feel, and experience better than anyone else!
At the same time, the Community Friendship Forum is managed, monitored, and moderated by myself, Laura, and the Client Care Team. There is a whole group of us who will be paying attention to what happens in the Forum, and we will be available to step in should there be any kind of difficulty. It’s important that you know this Forum is a safe area for you and your insiders, and we have done our very best to help with that as well. And of course, if we discover additional and necessary safety adjustments, I will be happy to incorporate those as need be.
The second half of the Discussing Dissociation Forum will be available soon, hopefully later in 2019. The second side of the Forum will be structured differently, more educational, more guided, more specialized. Laura and I will be much more involved on that side of the Forum, and be contributing on a regular basis. The “Premium Forum” is different from the Friendship Forum, but both are important.
But you know… most of the hard work of putting all the bits and pieces together has been already been completed, so it shouldn’t be tooooo complicated adding in the second half. (At least that’s what I think now! 😉 Ask me again in a few weeks, lol. 🙄 😉 )
Anyway, let’s get back to what is ready now, now, NOW!
The Community Friendship FORUM is ready!
It is! It really is!
First, take time to read the MASSIVE Forum Information Page that answers a lot of the questions you have been wanting to know.
It’s a giant page, with all kinds of information — probably more than you cared to think about! From that page, if you are still interested in joining the Forum Community, you may click on the “Get Started Here” buttons and meander your way through the signup process.
You’ll go through a bunch of steps, and click through a lot of different pages, but stick with the process, keep your browser open. Don’t close your browser window!
After you answer all kinds of questions, you’ll eventually end up at the Forum.
Please remember — for right now, the Forum is new. It’s already busy, averaging about 1000 new posts per week! Laura and I have posted a few things as well, but this is the Friendship Forum, so most of the content will come from you. I know how excited you have been about the Forum getting started, and I’m quite sure that it will stay busy for a long time!
UPDATE: The Forum has been open for a few weeks now, and WOW! The response has been incredible! There are already hundreds of posts written by the Forum Members each week and lots of active conversations on more than 175 topics. You are welcome to join in and talk with others who can truly relate to you.
The Community Friendship Forum has:
An active posting community who writes approximately 1000 new posts each week
A quiet, calm, soft visual appearance
Open availability 24/7, every day of the year
Friendly supportive conversations between DID survivors
Helpful information and genuine understanding
Fun, giggles, pleasant, cheerful exchanges
Challenging questions and motivational topics
The ability to offer support between your therapy sessions
Hundreds of topics of conversation at this point in time – with many more to come!
Professional Mental Health management and Client Care Team support
And because the Forum is new, the CHARTER MEMBER price — the price offered to the brand new members of the brand new Forum — will be the lowest price ever offered for this Forum.
For the first few weeks of opening, the earliest Forum Members were able to sign up for the Charter Member price of $29 USD per month, or $299 USD per year.
Unfortunately, the 25% discount period for Charter Members** in the Community Forum has ended.
The price has now increased to $39 USD per month, or $399 USD per year.
** You may still catch the Charter Member pricing for second part of the Forum, the “Premium side”, which will be opening soon.
Pricing Info is explained HERE.
Click any “Get Started Now” button to read additional information needed, prior to pricing is offered. Keep clicking, and follow the process. I promise — you will eventually see the pricing options before needing to make a purchase. If you need time to think about whether that price is suitable for you, you can come back to the pricing options at a late time.
The Premium Forum will have a separate pricing structure from the Community Friendship Forum, but we’ll get to more of those details another day.
Yes, of course, you will be able to easily upgrade your membership to the Premium Forum when it is ready. And anyone who joins the Premium Forum will be able to see and interact with all areas of the Friendship Forum.
So be watching your email!
And be ready to join!
This could be the perfect gift for your DID system.
This daily support with dissociative peers who truly understand could become invaluable to you and your insiders.
I know that you have been asking me for a new DID Forum for a very very long time, and I am genuinely happy to offer this newly created resource for you.
It’s finally done, and it’s finally ready….. whew!
Speak with you again soon!
