    Hello @Jan16, welcome to the community. Sorry to read you're finding your condition lonely. Our members are all very friendly and I'm sure you'll find some support here :)

    Our Coffee Lounge is a great place to start if you're looking to get to know people and play some games. 

    Do you have any supportive friends and family to talk things through with?

    I do have a very supportive family in a lot of ways, it's just that they haven't been made aware of the horrendous abuse I suffered as a child (I don't believe telling ur children)..so although they know I have DID, they don't want to see or understand when one of my alters fronts..but thank u for ur lovely greeting and message..it is greatly appreciated 😊

    That's understandable @Jan16, it will always be up to you how much information you want to disclose to the people around you. But it's lovely to read that your family are usually supportive :)
