In this episode, what Dr. E expected to be a delightful book review becomes a charming love story of a survivor and her husband, and their journey discovering DID. With her consent, he tells the story of growing up with her in high school and witnessing some of her family dynamics, disclosures, and medical related struggles due to abuse. He shares their story of going to college together and her ever growing memory gaps with sudden headaches. He tells the story of her breakdown-breakthrough that ultimately led to an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment for DID. Then married with three children, the couple wanted a way to talk about DID with their outside children. That’s how “The Patchwork Quilt” was born. This episode contains the above mentioned triggers, including references to child abuse, sexual abuse, and retraumatizing in hospital situations. No graphic or detailed descriptions or disclosures are shared.
