Certainly not. I am thankful that you were able to become a multiple because it helped you to stay alive. It allowed you to protect yourself and remain sane in the face of severe abuse. It allowed you to endure the bad times and to keep your heart and soul safe from the abusers.

Being a multiple may no longer be necessary for you as a way to stay safe. It may even be creating very serious problems for you. It may be interfering with making or keeping friends. Only you know for sure.

The reality is that the alters have stored some of the feelings you felt were not OK. The alters have probably also stored and protected tender feelings that you didn?t feel safe enough to have.

And all those feelings whatever they are, are definitely OK. If you acknowledge and accept your feelings, you will feel more whole. Doing this may also help you get to know yourself better. You have choices now. You have power over your present and your future."

I copied this from a book by an "expert" on MPD/DID. Unfortunatly she failed to mention that some never do heal and never lead a "normal" life.
