Welcome to IGDID


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 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.

The very best to you,
Felicity Lee

hi, everybody i posted this a while ago, months i know, and i still wasn't totally satisfied with it. one day felicity suggested something and off i went. so here's the new poem. i think it's better, i hope you like it.

           2,4,6,8,we don't want to integrate

We are
            This knot that’s all tangled And jumbled inside
            Unraveling's what’s needed, not running to hide
                We’ve become Interwoven
 And yet we are separate
 And share of one mind.
 As we gently untangle and reveal each link
 We find each one precious
 With it’s own way to think.
 But as we acknowledge each has it’s own way
 We find that it comes with it’s own price to pay      
 We know some who wear glasses
 Different prescriptions at that
 They find it chaotic and that is a fact
 Some of us speak
 Some have nothing to say
 Others just feel and long for the day
 When the knot is untangled,
      Each link’s it’s own shine
      Each link that is separate in a circular line
  A chain made of silver
  And coupled with gold
 A chain all unraveled
 A chain that is whole

 Each link lending it’s strength
 Plus it’s own love and fear
 Yet connected together, we’re present, we’re here
 Each link has it’s value
 Each link is quite fine
       And when joined together-an intricate design
        We do not desire to be reduced down to one
        We believe that our value comes with the sum
        Of part upon part with each job to be done-
        Working together devaluing none.
So yes, we are many
And yet we are one.

Written by some of us, for all of us

We find each one precious
With it’s own way to think.

I like your poem but this jumped out at me. This sounds so hopeful to us, that the work we are doing is slowly untangling each link. Each part is a link and therefore precious.

Thank you for sharing your poem!
