You know how I’ve been going through this 5 Stages of Grief stuff right? To just put the past where it belongs… behind me. And then up pops another altar who has fresh memories from a point in that timeline. So we go over the stages and have a talk using grounding techniques. Get that one over whatever hump they are stuck on and go on from there.
It really sucks that I have to do the same thing over and over until I run out of affected alters. The good thing is that I think they are (or most anyway) in between stages 4 and 5. So it’s like we’re bouncing around like a damn ping-pong ball. Today, right now… I can say I feel as if I have my life back. It’s a new life, a different life but it’s my life.
The fact that I never thought about my alters not all going through the stages together… ugh it annoys me. I want to be done. Move on to the next thing. Well, there is a good thing – sort of – Kiki may not think so but it gave me some relief that someone else has a reaction to something like I do. We were having a conversation and just something she said made me feel much better. I felt less alone… yes, even a multiple can feel alone.
Until next time… Blessed Be… Missy
