When switching is constantly going on and you can't keep up with consistency needed to maintain course loads or work it is of no surprise these things cannot be balanced for many systems.

As far as Shima and Head mates are concerned their lives are relatively mundane. There isn't a set routine to maintain structure and balance at this time, but Shima is hoping that once a doctor is found and formal diagnoses are given they can begin to heal together and maintain a life.
Shima created these.
I guess for one's that like to believe this doesn't exist... I don't know. I'd say there's weirder things in nature that can happen to people, far more than having different beings within us. Some Lizards for example, can change their sex whenever they want in order to reproduce. So, weirder things can happen...Try to actually listen to people. They give their opinions without knowing or understanding fully what's up.
To me this was a crucial point for Shima to bring up as nearly every system we've spoken to at this point has had a negative encounter with doctors...and yet, we still--as a community-- continue to go. There can be many reasons for this and I'm certainly not stating all, but people know more often than not, what they need and how to gain that. Despite struggles time and again people need help and healing within the DID community, unfortunately this isn't something you can stroll into any Psychologists office with and state, "Hey, I need your help. Here is what's been happening for me and from what I can tell, have read or have heard from the people in my life, I'm living with DID. Sometimes I'm not "myself" they say, and then the long discussion of those instances...
Which is unfortunately not the case and we would very much like to change that. I can walk into any office and state, this is what's happening, this is why, I think my arm is broken. The doctors will give me an x-ray and proceed from there... I don't understand why this doesn't occur with DID. If my arm isn't broken after viewing the x-ray but merely fractured then the doctor would proceed from there and give me the answers and help I need for what is wrong, in my mind the same should be true for DID. Utilize the criteria and discuss the options. I am aware not everyone has DID, but for those that do life could begin so much sooner if walking into an office was deemed a safer endeavor than it currently is.
- DID is defense mechanism-not made to be obvious
- Helps get us by
