Tonight's special guest is Eva from the High Desset in California, a child abuse survivor who's dealt a lot with DID, dissociative identity disorder. The main cause of DID is believed to be severe and prolonged trauma experienced during childhood, including emotional, physical or sexual abuse. Eva, now 38, was born in Japan, and has since become an American citizen. After her grandfather passed away in 2001 things started to change in her life. Grief counceling eventually led her to understand how little she knew of herself! As she says, "I always had a vague sense of something wasn't quite right with me, and I had never felt happy for all of my life, as long as I could remember." She learned she was suffering from PTDS .. but there was more to it than that. "In 2002, I was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder, more commonly known as Multiple Personality Disorder." She was scared and confused. "I think any child would be very scared if she was lost in an unfamiliar place with no one she knew around her. When I lost time, that's what if felt like - being a lost child." She's been healing since then, and now helps others. "I truly suffered alone. It was a long and lonely road to go through all by myself. And I don't want others who are living with DID to go through what I had to go through. That's why I started SoCal DID Meetup." Eva also offers her email address to anyone who wants help with these issues: AliveLovelyWhole@gmail.com
