    1. HAHA! Hi! Thank you for stopping by….That’s so lovely of you. Thank you for the wonderful comment, that’s really a sweet thing to say. Just being us! 😀 Feel free to jump in anywhere you see fit! You have a really awesome looking blog! -M

          1. You guys are the best. On bench, my highest was 125 lbs. On deadlift I got up to 200 lbs and squat 175 lbs. That was about 6 months ago when I was lifting several times a week. But lately I’ve been having a lot of gym anxiety so I’ve been inconsistent…

          1. Sorry for the super vague question :-/ I meant Ash, but I’ve spent the last little while on your site learning about it so I’m getting to know the main players’ names 🙂

          2. We are open books. If you ever have a question about DiD or something you see on our blog, don’t hesitate to ask. There is a lot of disinformation about there about DID. You’re always welcome here. 🙂

          3. Thank you! It’s nice to know that it’s okay to comment/ask questions without accidentally sounding super ignorant (it may be the case, but it won’t be willful or mean-spirited ignorance).

          4. Not only that, bloggers and Youtubers are just as bad, if not worse. It’s not just the mainstream news, you know? Forget the movies. It’s these people causing the real stigma they claim they are trying to erase. When you live with something this life changing you can spot people lying about living with DID, or acting like an active alter, 10 miles away, if not further. It’s just like a lifelong smoker watching someone who doesn’t smoke, try and act like they are a smoker.

            It’s people either lying to garner unearned sympathy or to receive State/Govt benefits. DiD is extremely, extremely extremely, uncommonly rare (Did we mention “extremely”). Some of these people have turned their stories (Or potential misdiagnosis) into careers on Youtube. It’s absolutely ridiculous. “Meet my alter day..” with the cheesy, 9 year old bubble gum pop music playing in the background….Are you fucking kidding us?

            Be VERY careful when it comes to ingesting information from ANYONE claiming to live with DiD – ESPECIALLY anyone in the mainstream.

          5. WOW. I had no idea this was such an issue or that there was so much misinformation. Could DiD possibly have the unfortunate distinction of being the LEAST understood yet MOST glamourized mental health diagnosis?

          6. Our friend, we will say this just having met you. Ask Ashley, she’s been following us for years. The REASON why this is, in your words,

            “Could DiD possibly have the unfortunate distinction of being the LEAST understood yet MOST glamourized mental health diagnosis?”

            That’s actually quite a simple answer and that is, it has to do with our family, us – The people you’re talking to. Keep following us for a bit, you’ll see exactly what we are talking about. Don’t trust us or take our word for it, we wouldn’t want that. Just watch and see for yourself.

            Just remember, take everything you hear about DiD with a giant grain of salt. Not telling you not to taste all the information out there, just be carefully swallowing it.
            You might end up with food poisoning. Great blog post today (Well, yesterday), by the way. 🙂
