Who are the K’s?
We are the K’s, and “we” are actually a “she”. I have been diagnosed with a dissociative disorder, more than likely Dissociative Identity Disorder/Multiple Personality Disorder, but my doctor doesn’t want to stick a label on me. I’ve struggled with mental illness since I was a little girl, but this DID/MPD diagnosis is something we’ve only just begun to seriously explore since January of 2012. At this point in time, it is unclear how many of “us” there are. I’m still learning to recognize and listen to the different K’s inside me. I also suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and a handful of other disorders just for added fun. I dissociate. I hallucinate. I hear voices. I self-medicate. I self-harm. I take a ton of medication. We’re eccentric, sometimes manic, and always neurotic.
This blog is written by different K’s at different times. Be warned: not all of us are polite.
