Hi. My name is Kat. I'm a 42 year old woman who lives with a man who has Dissociative Identity Disorder (7 personalities that he knows of), PTSD, depression, anxiety. We met on a website for mentally ill people. I've been in and out of treatment for 34 years and have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, major depression, anxiety. I have my moments, but I take my meds and am in therapy Randy takes meds too, but hasn't been in therapy for years. I thought this relationship with Randy would be good for us, as we're both mentally ill, and so would understand each other. I couldn't have been more wrong. I foolishly let him move in with me last November and it's been a living Hell ever since.

Hi Kat. Sorry to hear that things aren't working out for you. What is the biggest clash between the two of you? How were things going before the move-in? How long did you know one another before that? What do you two have in common besides mental illness (what attracted you two)? Most importantly, what do you think would it take for you two to make it work? Is there anything we can do (specifically) to help you out?
