    I am having a really bad night... week really. I did an online search for a support chat for self injurers.. I found you.

    I pretty much just pushed away the only friend I have to talk to when I have the urge to injure myself, because I'm so tired of hurting him with my issues.

    I was hoping to be able to sit and chat with people who might understand, and distract myself from how I feel right now...

    Surviving on hugs and kind words.
    I person with DID on YouTube recommended this site in one of her videos, and so I checked it out and here I am. I don't think I would have found it otherwise and I'm really glad I did. Here I can talk to people who understands things that no one else does, people just gets me here.

    I was lost

    It is Christmas Day, I have no family, my abuser got out of jail on Friday, and I am scared. I just did not want to be alone, so I searched yahoo.

    Virtual hugs are good, but terms of endearment tend to make me queasy. lol
    I actually found the Fort quite on accident! I had just been diagnosed with DID and had NO idea what that meant. So, being the good 21st century child that I am. I GOOGLED. I stumbled across a photo collage that someone had done depicting themself as they look/feel when different alters are out. (You can see the picture, done by Samantha, in the Fort Library here: http://www.fortrefuge.com/survivors-art.php ) I found this fascinating and courageous. It helped me feel like maybe I could still have a life and be multiple. And I wanted to know how that could be achieved.... at first I was too nervous to actually sign up for forums. I wanted to chat, somewhere I didn't feel any commitment or loyalty, just test the waters and have the freedom to leave without my name being on any sort of "members" list. And back in the day, the chat was separate from the forums so I could do that. But I got hooked And about a month later I signed up for forums. I actually have found the most release and freedom in being able to post in forums, though chat is an excellent way to build and reinforce some amazing friendships I have developed here and get some immediate feedback. I seriously don't know how I would have survived this healing journey I'm on had it not been for the Fort. My Fort Family has been one of the most frequently used tools in my survival toolbox!!
