How well do you accept yourself and your story? Or the stories of your alters/parts?
How do you tell people about your alters, especially if the alter is of another gender?
Do you have issues related to the various genders of your alters/parts, or with your body’s gender?
How comfortable are you with your DID? Do you hide this reality from the world? Do you share it with everyone? Talk about your feelings with regard to hiding or exposing your DID to others.
Where do your alters/parts reside? In your body? Brain? Anywhere else? In the group we also talked about body memory and how that might relate.
