Resources for Family and Friends

Friday, June 15th, 2012

Maybe you or someone in your family has recently been diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder commonly known as multiple personalities.  Or maybe you have been wondering what could explain your partner’s apparent ability to completely change into someone totally different.  It might seem that this person suddenly becomes childish to get out of their responsibilities or they just won’t focus long enough to finish a task.  Just when you figure them out there is a change and the person in front of you has no recollection of what you are complaining about.

In fact a person with DID is often hard working, talented and successful in their career but in some strange ways not always. He or she often has a complex inner life and works hard to keep the rest of the world from knowing anything but the successful self.  It takes so much energy to deal with the chatter in their head; to keep alters from blurting out embarrassing comments and to cover-up their own confusing disorientation. There is a constant worry that they might switch, lose time or do something inappropriate in front of their families or colleagues. As a result exhaustion and anxiety are prevalent.

Whenever I have a client whose family members are willing to support their loved one through the healing journey I know my job will be easier.  My clients need a safe home surrounded by people who understand and accept the diagnosis.  Acceptance is not easy for either the client or the family member but the journey includes educating yourself, nurturing a support system and a great big dose of humor.

A diagnosis of DID is just a model for understanding unexpected changes in behavior, thoughts and emotions.  It is really a survival skill, honed in childhood trauma that continues in strange ways for the grown adult.  As wild as multiple personalities may seem it is actually full of potential for change and recovery.  Keep your sense of humor and go with the flow!

Lifestyle Family Fitness

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

If you are a parent, not only do you need to think about how you will maintain your own health and fitness, but you must worry about your children’s as well. Raising children is no easy task, but one of the most important jobs on the planet. Taking care of your sons and daughters means that you must provide them with a safe environment in which to live and play, plenty to eat, and a healthy lifestyle. In doing so, lifestyle family fitness comes into play. As a parent, you must lead by example, so it is important that you engage in physical fitness activities along with your children.

The lifestyle family fitness refers to a family that engages in different activities together in an effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Not only does this allow you and your family to spend quality time together, it does benefit the health and well-being of every family member, maybe even the pets, too! Families that eat meals together, play games together, and exercise together usually are much happier than those families who do not. It makes communication and relationships stronger which translates to happier times at home. Living a lifestyle in which family fitness is a key element takes plenty of parental commitment, imagination, patience, and leadership.

The lifestyle family fitness is affected by several factors which can include cost, family friendly environments, fun, convenience, and success. While you may be thinking that getting your entire family to participate in a fitness program may be expensive or cost prohibitive, it does not need to be. Yes, it is true you may spend a few hundred dollars on a trip to the ski slopes, but you don’t have to in order to maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle with your family. There are plenty of activities that cost very little or may even be free that can contribute to your family’s fitness which include a hike on a local park trail, bicycling together, or hitting the swimming pool.

Making fitness a way of life for your family will take some time and effort for everyone. It’s up to you, the parent, to take charge and lead by example. Do it with enthusiasm and show the rest of your family how you’re making it fun.
