Hello lovelies! 😀 You made it! It’s Friday! 😀 See, we knew you would make it through the week. Katy Mae, where are you!?!?! Katy is nowhere to be found – She posted one meme last night, that’s it. We tried taking her shooting this morning, nothing. We played some of her music. Nothing. She is reacting very badly badly to something really awful.
We know, that she is a sharpshooter, who’s first persona fragmentation is Tania, from Enemy At The Gates. We think Katy chose Tania as a fragment after our kidnapping.
This was the first time Katy chose to arm herself with a weapon of any kind, that requires marksmanship and precision. She has been visualized before, protecting all of us, with a bolt action weapon (This is of course, all metaphorical):
She could be lying in wait, in metaphorical terms as opposed to hiding. Who knows. We are in uncharted territory. We collectively have never seen her this upset.
Since we are on the subject of Katy, do you think you know someone who may have DiD? Maybe even you (Your secret is safe with us!)? There is an awesome website out there with tons and tons of information on DiD, we think we posted it once but why not post it again? We have a pretty cool song for you to enjoy, as well.
Here are some of the basic warning signs that you or someone you know may be suffering from DiD, formerly known as “Multiple Personality disorder”:
Symptoms of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)
The official symptoms of dissociative identity disorder have been most recently defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition. The following are the diagnostic symptoms of DID:
- Two or more distinct personalities exist in one individual; one personality is always present (Understanding Dissociative Identity Disorder Alters)
- Dissociative amnesia including gaps in the recall of important personal information and everyday events
- Severe distress and impairment in functioning because of the disorder
- The disturbance is not part of normal cultural or religious practices
- The disturbance can’t be explained but substance use or another medical condition
You can read these real dissociative identity disorder stories and watch videos to understand the effect of DID symptoms.
Signs of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)
While the official DID symptom list is short, the signs of DID are numerous. Dissociative behavior is divided into two categories: detachment and compartmentalization. Detachment is “a voluntary or involuntary feeling or emotion that accompanies a sense of separation from normal associations or environment” while compartmentalization is “solation” or splitting off of part of the personality or mind with lack of communication and consistency between the parts.”
People with DID often also suffer from borderline personality disorder characteristics, somatization disorder (physical symptoms without cause), major depression, posttraumatic stress disorder and suicide attempts.
The signs of dissociative identity disorder include a number of characteristics regarding the multiple personalities including:
- Personalities are discrepant (disagreeing) and often opposite.
- Each personality is well-ingrained with its own memories, behavioral patterns and social relationships that govern its behavior.
- Transition from one personality to another is often sudden and brought on by stress.
Other signs of DID include:
- Amnesia or blackouts (in the absence of substance use)
- The person referring to him or herself as “we”
- The person being told that they did certain things to don’t recall. The person may find unfamiliar objects or samples of strange handwriting.
- Sleepwalking and automatic writing (such as those in fugue states)
- Auditory hallucinations
- Phobias; fear, often undifferentiated
- Difficulty in parenting and responding to own children
- Problems trusting others
- Hostility and anger
- A sense of betrayal
- Problems with sexual adjustment
- Increased levels of sexual behavior
- Substance abuse
Just another beautiful song. We aren’t endorsing Jesus.
For those of you lovelies that like to binge watch: We have a weekend suggestion. Deadwood. It’s one of the most impressive mainstream shows we have ever seen. We have spent or entire lives studying acting and actors and this is an impressive show of acting skills.
We have chosen many persona fragmentations from this show. It’s worth every second of your precious time. We warn you, the show is a bit wordy but that’s part of the beauty of the show. The engaging language. Truly an art form. There is excessive vices of every kind and fair warning, if you’re recovery from addiction, this show WILL be a trigger.
What a frickin’ week. The arrow rest we attached to our bow created vibration on the frame, rattling out the really crappy, unsupported sight mount. An arrow went through the rest and the entire sight mount literally FELL out and off of the bow. There was excess vibration from arrow rest contacting with the vanes of the arrow and it rattled cheaply mounted sight right off the bow .
This was a beautiful gift given to us, so we wanted to get it mounted, CORRECTLY! So, back to the drawing board we went.
LOOK at that. The old mount (Larger holes) weren’t even
securely bolted! Wow, what a cheap ass design.
It’s taken days and days of modifications to get the thing to shoot relatively straight. We have rebuilt this bow 5 times now but learning a lot in the process. We have had to bore new holes for the mounts, ect. Eesh. Here’s what it looks like now. Many cardboard boxes have died painful deaths, too, to get this thing shootin’ straight.
Check out these plants. LOL! We just dumped a bunch of seeds into a bucket of dirt and look what we have! These little guys are having a lot of trouble growing with all the dark skies as of late. We are going to take these and plant them outside.
Japetteo the squirrel and his buddies have decided our plants are their property, for them to chew on, whenever.
The whole planting thing is relatively new and of course suggests that Cooper has been chosen by Mike/Mark from Interstellar. The characters in that movie were farmers.
Well, that’s all we have for you lovelies! Thank you for taking time out of your day and spending it here with us. That means so much, to all of us, more than you might ever think. Keep your eyes peeled for Katy Mae, she’s around here somewhere!
Happy Friday and stay lovely!
