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

Irritable and Scared

I have said for years that I had multiple personalities, and those who know me best could agree; that is, I have tendencies to do things for no reason, and I don’t know why I’m acting the way I am, so I playfully accused it on the “other me”.

I am no longer that little girl, I am now an adult with real personality issues, and I’m struggling to stay the one in charge.

I turned 31 recently, and with it came the onset of major personality conflicts: I don’t want to cooperate in life, I find myself sabotaging my goals and I’ve even gotten into 3 fistfights with myself this year!

I have been aware of the others, how they killed me and took over my body, and how when I was nearly incarcerated 5 years later, when they realized how important a leader is, I was freed from the closet in my mind; only recently my “other me” has been challenging for “equal time”.

I promised her that I would let her make more choices; it was a decision based upon fear that she would gang up on me and take over again; so in attempts to stay in control, I’ve allowed her equal reign.

Only, she wants to do things that are not a priority to our goals. I graduate with my AA and transfer this year, she wants to become a vender and sew for a living. I am in a long-term relationship, she wants to run away and become a call-girl. I want to show my children what it means to be a responsible civil adult, she wants to hit them and hurt them. I don’t know what to do.
And I feel like I’m losing control.

I told the doctor about it today, and now I feel so unclean. I want to scrub my insides out with a bristle brush. I want to make it go away, but I know it won’t.

I’ve said for years that there is another me, and the more I delve, the more I meet. I think I have six, and two of them don’t get along. Their bickering is driving me mad, it is so hard to focus on anything but staying calm, and often that means staying disconnected from life, from my family, and from myself.

Please help me by suggesting how you manage. I need energy, and focus, and love.

it takes time but co-operation is what is needed. Idealy one strong alter who can look after the system, not necessarly the host. It is harder for the host to handle the others but if no one else will do it I guess you have to try.

Thank you, I have a main alter, and she is a warrior of sorts. I have been trying to manage myself, and I feel more overwhelmed then usual. Would you suggest that I just check in to see what is happening with her, rather then keep track of all of it myself?

Yes that is a very good idea, she might be able to get your system under control for you, or at least make it more bearable.
