What does it mean to be living with Dissociative Identity Disorder?
How does one navigate such a path?
What of the perceptions that other’s may have?
And where does one find community, and even acceptance?
This is the story of Eva Eakins, a woman who was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder, and how she found acceptance and inspiration in my membership community, Trauma Therapist | 2.0.
In this interview, a continuation of my series with members of Trauma Therapist | 2.0, Eva shares in a detailed and intimate way, the experiences of her life and what it means–and feels like–to live with this disorder.
Eva also talks about why, as someone with DID, she initially (and incorrectly!) thought that Trauma Therapist | 2.0 might not accept her. (Well we certainly did!)
The individuals that decide to come on this podcast never cease to amaze me with their daringness, compassion, and willingness to share the details of their backgrounds and struggles.
Eva Eakins is certainly no exception.
