A Cause.

OUR MISSION IS: Destigmatize. Spread hope.

To tell a story which exposes the damaging stigma against those living with D.I.D. – survivors of immense trauma – by showing what it feels like to live with D.I.D.

 

To culturally bring a human face to those survivors who have been demonized, sensationalized, and exploited in media.

 

To give a message of hope to those living with D.I.D., survivors of abuse, and those living with other mental health issues.

Continuum of Dissociation

Dissociative Identity Disorder falls along on a continuum of dissociation. That continuum ranges all the way from the dissociation of common everyday experience to the dissociative disorders.

Everyday Dissociation

Everyday forms of dissociation are very useful and nonpathological.

  • Dissociation is a very valuable skill that we all have to a greater or lesser extent. We couldn’t navigate in the world without it because if we didn’t have it, we would have to take in all the data that impinges on us all at once.” – David Calof; Psychologist and leading voice on D.I.D.

Our language reflects this everyday dissociation:

  • “I wasn't myself today."

  • "I was beside myself."

  • "I gave myself a good talking to."

Examples of everyday dissociation:

  • Daydreaming/ getting "lost in thought"

  • Getting "lost" in a book

  • "Zoning out" on the usual drive home from work, realizing you don't remember the last several miles.
