In August of 2020, I discovered through traumatic means that I very likely have had Dissociative Identity Disorder. In these blogs, I attempt to piece together what might have caused it, or signs that I should have picked up early on. I wasn’t there for much of my childhood.
I remember sharing it with Neb from early on, then sleeping through ages 12-19. Then, in 2013, I woke up. These blogs take place between 1998 and 2005.
1993: The body was born on August 25th at 12:54pm in Chillicothe, Ohio.
1999: We were transferred from the school’s latchkey program to “Kim’s House.” The bullying and abuse were horrific.
2001: The body’s parents divorced. We were told by Mom taking us to a two-bedroom apartment and saying, “Mommy lives here now.”
2001: Mom married Bruce Evans. The sexual abuse began. https://living-fiction.com/2021/05/07/tracing-it-back/
2002: We met a 12 year old friend who went by Shadow, who introduced us into the ‘Children of Chaos’ religion. https://living-fiction.com/2020/08/30/inworld-mythos-and-how-it-developed/
August of 2004: Shadow commits suicide.
2005: Shadow’s friend, Jay, comes back looking different and going by the name “Illusion.” Despite being close friends with Neb, no one else is able to see him.
