I did ask this in the thread yesterday and Brooke was kind enough to say recommend trying this thread, so if anyone has had experience with DID I'd love to hear your input:
Has anyone worked with a patient with Dissociative Identity Disorder and do you think complete integration has to happen to heal? I've had successful integrations as I've gone through therapy but it's still hard to think about being a "whole" person if that makes sense.

And there's one in particular who still holds anger towards me so it's really hard to think of integrating.)
