To me being multiple means a gift. Don’t get me wrong being multiple is not easy and is most of the time a lot more confusing that being a “singleton”… But it is a gift in that sense that I truly believe that Gabriel would not have survived with out it.
There are many people out there that thing of multiples as crazy people or that we are just making the whole thing up for attention…. Oh I wish it was only in my imagination….I wish nothing of what happened to us was true… but it is true and as to survive DID was developed.
We are not crazy and we are not lying when we describe our world at the “inside”. Maybe that inside world is all in my imagination but it is real to me and it helps with the confusion and it feels safe for most of us. That is the most important part of all this…. to feel safe.
We do not need to justify our selves to anyone…. we are “we” and we want to be “we”. That is how we feel safe.
