I hated all holidays, they were all sad for me. But this year my friend wanted to change that for me so we made a weird and wonderful mix of Christmas and Hanukkah. It was two days long and full of Christmukkah miracles and food and silly music, we made paper decorations and we burnt a round of candles on the menorah for every bottle of wine we finished. I bet the neighbors thought we'd gone nuts. So that's my favorite holiday, whatever it was. We will do it again. It was my first really happy holiday.

How do you pronounce "species?" Speeshees or speesees or something else?

I don't have any parts of me that are not human. I don't think. I have dreams about animals that seem almost human.

Have you ever experienced the "feeling" of truly feeling safe? Do you have a memory of feeling safe and are you able to feel it now?

I just answered this on another thread, but yes, I have felt safe. I didn't when I started treatment, but I do now. It started with feeling safe at t's. Then I imagined a place and used EMDR to strengthen it. Now, I feel safe sometimes. Not all the time, not yet. But that is one area where I have had a huge improvement.

What kind of therapy have you tried?

As a child I felt safest when I was alone and in nature. We had these trails in a forest that we rode minibikes on. They were so peaceful and beautiful.

Since an answer was given with no question, I'd like to restore balance to the universe and post a question without giving an answer:

Have you ever found yourself in a funny situation or pickle because of switching/dissociating? What was it?
