Someone else in the mirror November 16, 2012

I know it’s not unusual for peoole with DID to feel disconnected from their reflection, but this is different.

Tonight when I look in the mirror, I keep seeing my sister. I mean, on some level I know it’s me, but I keep seeing my sister. We don’t even look that much alike.

I don’t understand why it’s happening. It’s really freaking me out.

    I don’t know how to help but to say that I know you are most definitely not your sister. You are my friend and I wouldn’t mistake her for anyone else. Xxx thinking of you Sara.

    Yes. Happens to me every once in awhile… not very often, anymore, but it always makes me jump. It took me a long time to understand that I see an innard who’s got a very strong history that’s part of a hidden side of me. I don’t think I look like the person in the mirror, but there’s usually something important about the person that I connected to and stayed with, unconsciously.
