No Shame in a DID Diagnosis

I (Caroline) was on blog talk radio the other night talking about the fact that there is (or shouldn't be) any shame if you've been diagnosed with DID. You haven't done something wrong-- there isn't anything wrong with you--it doesn't make you bad. If you have DID, it means that your mind, your brilliant mind, came up with a creative coping technique to help you deal with unbearable circumstances. That's all. There's no shame in that. If you have DID, there can be and IS healing and hope for you. There truly is. You're not alone, and you don't have to suffer. You can make healthy, good choices. You have hope. You can find help. You can work through the confusion, sadness, and fears. There's no reason that a diagnosis of DID has to hold you back, or bring you shame, or make you have to hide. You can still be the person you were made to be. You can still have a good, positive, and happy life.
