Hey, welcome, and thank you for checking out our blog! Here we want to show who we are, what we do, and why we started this blog!
You will notice that we use both plural and singular pronouns when we write. This is due to various factors, but mainly because we are a medically diagnosed Dissociative Identity Disorder system. There are a lot of us in here, so we prefer to be inclusive of ourselves. Don't worry, we will have a blog dedicated to this topic later on. If you’re interested in joining our community subscribe below for notifications and leave a comment! We would love to hear your thoughts!
We are members of the disability community with developmental, mental health, and physical disabilities. You could say we are the trifecta or triad of disabilities. In this blog, we will focus on equal access, advocacy, and providing resources for developmental and mental health disabilities.
Please note that we are NOT medical professionals. Anything that we discuss in this blog are our experiences, opinions, and suggestions. All sources will be cited and we encourage you to research for yourself on any of the topics we present. We will provide trigger warnings when applicable especially when we are discussing trauma-related disorders.
What are our diagnoses?
We are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
Because of this, we will focus a lot of this blog on situations, advocacy, and barriers in the community that are related to these disorders.
Our Educational Background
Academically, we are creative writers currently in school to earn our Bachelors in Arts in English Literature/Creative Writing. We earned our Associate of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and earned our American Sign Language Communication certificate. We are volunteer advocates with Autism Speaks and work to spread disability awareness in our community.
We welcome you to our little corner of the netverse and hope you will stay tuned for helpful insights into the disability community from the perspective of an autistic DID system...We are The Alias System.
