Episode 6: Mental Health, Diagnosis, and Being Human

In This Episode:

  • Lae and I discuss her journey to diagnosis with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) from being a peer support specialist on Discord, to seeing a professional.

  • We talk about the need for people to show up for one another and how it is cool that we can do that in online group spaces now.

  • Lae talks about what things led her to seeking diagnosis as well as how her life has changed since.

  • Lae tells us a little bit about some of her alters and how they coincide with one another through life.

More About Lae:
