Hi guys, this is Julia. I just wanted to write a post to commemorate our first online troll.
Unfortunately it wasn’t on THIS blog, but it was in response to a comment Andi made on someone else’s blog. That blogger then accused us of faking DID, said Andi “stalked” Zooey and only “whines about therapy”. She further claimed that Andi “stole” two of her blog posts and “twisted” them into her own. She also specifically put my name in quotations to suggest I am not real. She called me a liar, but when I asked her to explain how she thought I was lying, she suddenly acquired a migraine headache.
She also insulted Andi for doing research on DID despite thinking that many of the mental health professionals she worked with were are “narcissistic douchebags with a savior complex” (I will assume she doesn’t yet understand the concept of living in the dialectic). She also said something about someone named Sam (the hobbit?) and something about an online stalker. None of us have any clue what she’s talking about.
Also, did she like memorize our blog? What a weirdo.
I knew this moment would come. I knew we’d be called a liar (nothing new). I knew people would say cruel things. But I’m proud of Andi, River, and I. We’ve made a large enough ripple to start pissing people off!
ETA: In all seriousness though, this is another blogger with DID. These comments appear to be made by a single part, so I’m not sure if the main author feels the same way, or just this part. I know I have several parts that share very different opinions from my own. Regardless, none of us should be policing each other’s diagnoses or accusing people of faking their illness. That’s just cruel and also contributes to the stigma that poisons our lives. Be kind to each other, fellow bloggers! Love, Andi
