I haven’t been so good about keeping up with posts on my own blog, but wanted to add something here.
Just a recap…
Elle and family have been dealing with a lot this last week. Since everything that went down with their last therapist, F, there’s been some discussion regarding the willingness to consider another therapist. One of the discussions led to the topic of two new personalities that have developed since the blow up with F. There’s been talk about who is active, who is dormant, etc.
Quinn discovered that there are a couple people in the family that think her role is no longer needed and there was a suggestion that she be “kept” somewhere. This is what made Quinn decide to contact her father, their main abuser (HIM). To Quinn, though, HE is not an abuser, but instead her loving father, the cop hero. As many of you know, not all of the insiders within a DID family experience their life as being traumatic. For Quinn, she has no recollection of abuse. Those that think she hasn’t an important role don’t understand that her role is one of the most important – she can function when those overwhelmed with PTSD cannot.
Since the call last week, things have been in chaos inside and out. Precautions have been put in place and no one will be responding to any contact he attempts to make. Needless to say it’s been a very frightening few days. When they are ready, they will begin posting again. Thanks to those of you who have checked in. We appreciate your patience and understanding and concern.
