2017 Patreon Introduction: Redoing It Now 12/25/18!


💠•••🔹•••💠

I envision a world where differences are celebrated rather than shunned, where the unknown is explored rather than feared, & where vulnerability is considered a strength rather than a weakness. "Be the change you wish to see in the world." Creating substantial world-change begins with a personal transformation. I must heal myself from the inside out.

💠•••🔹•••💠

Why is this mission so important? Millions of people worldwide suffer from this all-consuming disorder that completely affects how the brain & body function on a day to day basis. There is no cure. There is barely even treatment available. Change begins with awareness. Healing is possible, but we can't do it alone. I am organizing the Dissociative Identity Movement. Presenting, we have a Facebook group with representatives from England, Nigeria, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada, & over a dozen states across the US. Every day, we discuss aspects about dissociative disorders & brainstorm creative ways to share our insights with the world. {https://kristinkarina.wixsite.com/kristinchronicles/single-post/dissociativeidentitymovement2} Someday, the public will know what it means to exist as a multi-conscious mind. Someday, effective standardized treatment will exist for DID. Someday, people struggling with a dissociative disorder will no longer need to suffer to the extent we do now. It all begins here & now, along this healing journey. Let's change history.

What am I up against? Why is this healing journey such a big deal & huge challenge? I am currently recovering from, both mentally & physically:

  1. severe hip displacement (both sides fully twisted) of 10 years (2008-2018)

  2. repeated ankle injuries, especially right ankle (~2005-2015, sprains & twists)

  3. eleven years of chronic self-harm (2007-2018)

  4. a variety of on & off substance abuse (used to cope with the voices, depression, anxiety, insomnia, dissociation, & variety of PTSD symptoms)

  5. sexual assault April 2011 in California

  6. sexual assault May 2015 in Colorado

  7. apartment fire January 2016 (in Colorado)

  8. abuse & neglect from mental health “professionals” (2015-2017)

  9. emotional & mental abuse from dozens of people I once considered friends (due to how my dissociative identity was distorting my sense of reality & I lacked the support, tools, & awareness to properly combat it during that time)

  10. malnutrition from homelessness & being disabled

  • weigh 15 pounds less now than healthy weight in 2013 (last time I was stable)

  • weigh 35 pounds less than high school

  • weigh similar to childhood (before teenage years)

  1. displaced knees, etc. from improper pole dancing (2015-2017) & from hip displacement (2008-2018)

  2. 1 full year of head trauma (2017-2018) that severely shifted an important butterfly-shaped bone in my skull (that we've been treating through nasal-cranial ther

  3. accepting diagnosis of DID, dissociative identity disorder (& the reality of having suppressed childhood trauma of some kind)

  4. physical assault August 2017 (causing both mental & physical trauma that I am still working through, including 7 broken bones in my wrist & elbow)

  5. physical assault February 2018 (that also caused both mental & physical trauma that I am still working through, including severe chronic feet pain; it still hurts to stand & walk)

To fully embrace this healing journey, I have created a Healing Journey Homeschool that I hold myself accountable to every single day. It's a combination between an in-patient mental health treatment program, & a creative writing course. I follow a strict daily coping routine, from the moment I wake up until the time I get ready for bed. Every day, I am working on multiple projects that allow me to move forward in understanding my mind's madness & in communicating it in an effectively useful manner, such as through thoroughly-edited blog articles.
