Welcome to Astridetal’s blog. My name is Astrid and I am the host of a multiple system, ie. I suffer from dissocitive identity disorder (DID). DID is a trauma-based condition where a person gets too overwhelmed by experiences to cope and splits as a result. We do believe in other forms of multiplicity, but for us personally, it is a mental health condition. In additiont o DID, we have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and have a number of issues that don’t carry their own label but which are related to complex trauma or stress.
There are about fifteen to twenty alters in our system, all female as far as we know. In an earlier blog that we had on this URL, I introduced the alters on this page. I won’t do this now, since I can’t speak for the alters and don’t know much about some anyway. We can all use this blog to write.
