Sexual Abuse (SA) and Self-Injury (SI) Infomation, Insights, and Resources
|Welcome to "Seeing Through Multiple Eyes: TygerWolf Crew's Den". TygerWolf Crew, or TWCrew, is the collective name for our multiple personality system. We created this site to cover multiplicity, survivorship, and a personal view into both. We are survivors of childhood abuse, and in order to survive we had to create many people inside one body. This is called Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD), which in 1994 was renamed Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) by the American Psychological Association.
We're trying to make this site a balance between the information we needed and the chaos we experienced in our early years of recovery with the clinical knowledge and more peaceful life we have now. We hope you find this site useful, no matter where you are in your journey.
|Here is an overview of this site:
|We created our first website in 1996 when we were 21 years old. At the time we were struggling with severe depression, frequent self-injury, and confusing dissociation. We were officially diagnosed with MPD is the summer of 1996. Having a name for what was going on in our lives was a relief and it was also very frightening. Our first websites were more like on-line journals where we could keep track of what we were learning about this disorder and about ourselves.
Over time the site has made many changes and moved several times. We also have made many changes and moved several times! As we passed the 10th year anniversary of our first webpage, we started over with a new layout and better organization (just like inside, too!). We've survived the toughest years of our lives. We've lived longer than we ever expected (we made it past 30!). We've also accomplished goals we never thought possible.
We completed a BA in Psychology, ended our years of struggling with self-injury, married another survivor and Multiple named Glen, completed a MS in Rehabilitation Counseling Psychology, and reached our life-long goal of being a full-time counselor. I am now in the awesome place of helping others enter and travel through the journey of recovery.
Chaos is temporary,
