hearing voices: a sane reaction to insane circumstances

vwoop vwoop

I want to share here this TED talk by a woman who hears voices and was incorrectly diagnosed with schizophrenia for many years. I found her story fascinating (and familiar), and though she did not mention DID, I have an internal siren going off telling me that she has it. However, since she did not want to define her experience as such, I won’t claim to define her that way (the inner siren is pretty certain but hey, labels are something we choose, not something other people get to put on us).

She talks unemotionally about her experience, some of which might warrant a ***trigger warning**** if you’re feeling particularly sensitive (she briefly mentions self harm and a lot of fear).
