My name is Monica and am hoping to share my own personal experiences with DID, Bipolar and PTSD. I would like to finish school and become a Psychologist. If you should read my Hub's about DID and other mental or emotional illnesses regarding a loved one. Especially trying to understand the vicious stigma's toward the mentally ill. My goal is to help educate families and friends and counsel people. Encouraging, as many as I can of the possibilities and alternatives. Giving a ray of hope and of faith for those, who's loved ones struggle on a daily basis with these illnesses, just as I do. It is not easy to live with this condition and takes a great deal of patience, love, and concern for both the mentally ill (patient) and the (family) who cares for them. It takes a great amount of work, lots and lots of work, (therapy).
