Who do you mean by “we?”


We mean us, one or more of our alternate identities.
Sometimes we are more comfortable using first person plural language,
other times one of us is speaking and we use first person singular language.



How should I address you?

We are fine with you using singular pronouns to speak with us.

“you, your’s”

If you would like, you can also address us with plural language, like

“you all, y’all”

Mina is our manager, and has given her name for us all to use.

“Mina”

means “everyone” in Japanese (皆).



Isn’t this incredibly rare?

Up to

2%

of people live with dissociative identity disorder.
Up to

18.3%

of people live with any dissociative disorder.


Is this dangerous?


We assure you we are lucid and not a threat to ourselves or others.
Believing persons with DID are dangerous is bigotted and harmful.



Shouldn’t you keep this to yourself?


We are proud of being a system.

We think of our system as a unique neurodivergence and an outcome of our survival through immense trauma in our childhood.
We advocate for the inclusion of persons with disabilities in the professional environment.

Resources for Systems

We have found that the apps on the Apple App Store by Shigenori Kumagai

SelfTalking
StickyTalking
Mystagram

are easily navigatable and especially helpful in system conversation.
We are grateful to the 

Rings System

for helping us realize we are an OSDD-1b system.
