During my leave of absence over the past few months I organized the kitchen and most of the garage, gained 8 pounds, got unnaturally good at Words with Friends, and stared into space a lot. Impressive, no? But wait! There’s more … I also came up with some new features I want to create here at Don’t Call Me Sybil this year.
New Features for DCMS 2012
- DCMS Bookshelf
Every month I’ll feature a book from my personal library – nonfiction, fiction, whatever – that means something to me as someone with Dissociative Identity Disorder. Not every book will be specific to dissociative disorders. Still, all of them are books I want to share with you.
- On Our Dissociative Minds
Okay, so technically it’s not a new feature. But I’ve decided to make it a monthly thing. On the last day of each month I’ll post an overview of discussion highlights from the DCMS blog, Facebook, and/or Twitter.
- Dissociation Glossary
I’m pretty sure I could happily spend every day just talking semantics. But seeing as how I’m the only one that actually enjoys that I’m limiting myself to once a month.
- Blogger Highlight
There are so many excellent writers contributing their unique voices and insight to the blogosphere. Every month I’ll introduce you to one of them. Assuming, that is, you haven’t already discovered these gems.
- Dissociative Diary
My published work is written specifically for public consumption. My personal journals and therapy workbooks are not. And while Don’t Call Me Sybil will never be an intimate online diary – there are already lots of brave souls sailing those particular waters – I would like to offer a slightly broader picture of who I am and what living with Dissociative Identity Disorder is like for me. I’m not good at vulnerability but I did some diary style posts for Dissociative Living that people seemed to appreciate so I thought I’d at least try it here and see how it goes.
- Tracy Talks Dissociation
I cried, begged, pleaded, and pulled at my hair a lot and Tracy finally agreed to let me publish her thoughts as a partner of someone with DID on a monthly basis. (And by cried, begged, pleaded, and pulled at my hair a lot I mean I said, “Will you?” and she responded, “Yes.” But that doesn’t sound as good.) If you have a question for her, or something you’d like a partner’s perspective on, send me an email with ‘Tracy Talks Dissociation’ in the subject line. If you want to remain anonymous, here’s how.
