I’ve been reading more on DID and came across an interesting term I had never seen before: system mapping.
“Mapping your system will help you better understand the relationships between all of your alters. Knowing the relationships between your alters can help you increase internal communication and enable everyone to work together more cooperatively. Understanding these relationships can also help you learn more about each alter’s function or role in the system. If you are working with a therapist, make sure to share your system map with him or her. Your therapist might be able to help you make sense of your map or at least share their interpretation of it.” http://www.therapyinphiladelphia.com
Seems daunting. Each person is so complex. Each relationship is so intricate, detailed. I wouldn’t even know where to begin.
So, fellow bloggers and bloggees who deal with DID- how? what? who? why? when? where? Have you created a map? Is it helpful? Were any of you upset, or your alters upset by doing this? What kind of medium did you use?
Thanks in advance for any insight, personal experiences, etc.
