Living and Thriving with Dissociative Identity Disorder

March 20, 2011 Holly Gray

pilgrim"There is no shame in having DID," says one woman living with Dissociative Identity Disorder. Using the pseudonym Pilgrim to protect her family, she says she initially felt shame about her disorder. But with the help of her therapist, she now feels there's nothing wrong with having a Dissociative Identity Disorder diagnosis and wants to pass that message on to others.

The author of a blog about living with Dissociative Identity Disorder, Pilgrim says she wants others to know that "... you can not only survive with DID, but also thrive with it." On this week's HealthyPlace Mental Health Radio Show, she shares her story of living and thriving with Dissociative Identity Disorder.
