Emerging Blogger Series: Reaveree

The emerging blogger series is aimed at community building through giving mental health bloggers who are early in their blogging evolution the opportunity to have their work seen by a wider audience.  It’s also a way to introduce you as a reader to some newer members of our community.

A New Take on Mental Health @ Home

 

Perhaps my interpretation of that site name is different; let me explain.  Those who struggle have to, maintain acceptable visage when in public, as best they can, and present their “best self” to strangers and co-workers.  It’s at home, when alone, that life’s past, days past and event past come home to rest. It’s at home where we experience our condition the strongest.  Blogs and support groups are for the functional while mental health professionals, and yes, sadly, the courts are for the non-functional. Hi Ashley.

Now to Personality Dissociative Disorder and describing how it works.

Drugs don’t help.  Antipsychotics, antidepressants and the whole gambit of medications available don’t mitigate the symptoms but can help depression that is a result of the frustration of coping with the disorder.  Pentathlon has been used, but just to enable the personalities to erupt for the purpose of psychological analysis. When diagnosed and it was determined by the state mental health system and the Veterans Administration that I “really” had it, they pushed drugs to the point I was found to be dangerously overdosed.  It did not help.

Different personalities do different things but can’t do others.  One will cook but others don’t. So; if your present personality doesn’t bath, you have to wait for one that does to rescue you.  Good for deodorant sales, not good for social situations, so you wait, @ Home for the rescue.

Gender is often an issue.  Genetics: in the womb we’re all female in the beginning, enough said.  Males have a feminine side and females have a masculine side. Both genders have estrogen and testosterone, just in different levels.  Now for the real reason personality fragments divide, in part, by gender. A girl is being catastrophically sexually or physically, or both, abused.  “If I was a man I’d…” or “If I was stronger…” and “he couldn’t away with it if …” so her hatred and rage fragments into a man that, in her point of view, can deal with it physically and because men don’t manifest emotions: she’s ashamed and probably has to deal with the S.O.B on a daily basis.

When those fragments show up again @ Home she’s left to deal with him alone.

For the sake of modesty and embarrassed and to protect the young and those sensitive to questionable language, images or descriptions, the gory details are password protected.  Stories need to be told for cathartic reasons if for no other.

    Interesting take on what “mental health at home” means to you, I hadn’t thought about it that way but it really makes sense! Who we present to the world is not necessarily who we are at home. Thanks for sharing.

    “Males have a feminine side and females have a masculine side” We have been saying this for ages. Every human on Earth is transgender, to one degree or another. Very interesting blog piece.

    I do experience most of my mental health struggles at home. When I am at work, I become numb and am unable to show how I am really feeling inside.

    I agree that both sexes are somewhat the same. We both feel and have similar features in dress and how we live life
