With memories coming back and alters being more active, I miss my physical book collection. Many of the books I kept are about DID and dissociation. They helped fill in the information gaps between visits to my therapist. The books also helped me be able to explain some issues to people at work so that I could get accommodation and assistance with communication problems.
But I had to leave them with family last summer. My apartment was too small, and I didn’t plan in advance – needed more boxes to ship the books – well enough. No one in the system thought it would be too big an issue. We felt safe and stable enough to not have those resources at hand. And there are many more bookstores where I live now than where I lived before.
Should have been easy to borrow from the library or find a book to read at a bookstore, correct? Well, not so much when the topic is Dissociative Identity Disorder. I found some books from the library.
But now I’m having trouble reading them.
Not sure what’s holding me back.
But maybe (I hope) this weekend I will get to one of them.
Thanks for reading.
