Default Introduction

I thought maybe I should introduce myself.I posted in the Dissociative Disorders Check in thread a few days ago so I will just copy it here.

Quote:
It's been a long time since I've posted on this site.I think it's been since early 2012.Things have really changed since then.I didn't think it would ever happen and it wasn't the plan but full integration occurred.It was a slow and gradual process. I'm glad I stayed in therapy and trusted my therapist.

It's good to be back here
Nice to meet you.

Hi Betty thanks for all your input.

So you have no issues at all? You do not get triggered or anything? I am still not convinced I have OSDID. I think my complex PTSD gives more trouble than anything else.

Of course I still have issues.I still have PTSD and I still get triggered.I just don't have dissociative problems anymore really and that's why I wanted to ask if it was ok if I post here.

Of course it's okay that you post here. In fact, if you wouldn't mind explaining your integration process a bit, I'd appreciate it. We have two alters that want to integrate and I haven't a flippin' clue how to proceed.
