About Us & Our Forum
To provide a unique environment where folks who have experienced trauma can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, and learn from each other.
ACHIEVING OUR GOAL
Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and staff. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Terms of Service are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the forums. Staff regularly monitor posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment of learning for everyone.
As a friendly and kind community, we validate each other as equally special and significant.
These forums are active and the community not too large or too small - about 400 posts per day. There are many forums on different topics. The topics range in subject matter also. You are welcome to interact as you feel comfortable.
This is a safe place for members. We encourage building coping skills, learning from each other and material shared. We discourage sharing explicit memories of past abuse. We feel that processing memories be done with professionals. There are no practicing therapists on these forums. Therefore, topics that call for therapist type responses are discouraged.
Feel free to look around. Realize that, as a guest, your view of the forums is minimal. These forums are otherwise private to the public view and/or search engines.
We have literally hundreds of articles and provide workshops for everyone. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions. I am also providing a tutorial that should help with navigating our site.
Fall is here! It is alternately raining and sunning and never a predictable temperature !

There are a few of us, sometimes we all look in on as one and other times we separate out so much we lose ourselves
Posts: 4,215 A Bit About Me: I was dx'd with DID in 9/2016. I consider this my 2nd birthday! Before I was misused by the pdocs who gave me too many drugs, more than 75 ECT treatments and more hospitalizations that I literally remember.
Since my correct dx. I have discovered many internal loving and varied family members whom I cherish. I have returned to my first love, piano playing and am having some success in the 'singletons' world playing at different venues. I love this site!!
