Stewart & Nicola CSA Survivors
This episode comes with a trigger warning. Abuse is discussed but we will warn you with a TW during the more descriptive sections of the episode. As many of you probably know we had the pleasure of speaking at an event up in Barrie, Ontario October of this year (2018). While there we met Stewart and Nicola, both CSA survivors, advocates and Gatehouse volunteers. In this episode they share their own individual stories, what they're up to now and some amazing resources.

The We in Me - Chapter 1 #13
PLEASE READ BELOW FOR THIS EPISODE: This episode is very personal and dear to us... It is also quite an anxiety inducing episode to release. "The trauma after the trauma." As stated in the beginning we explain some about where the name "The We in Me," originated, as well as sharing far more about our life years ago, via the very first chapter of the book one of us has been writing for over 15 years. Yes, it's been that long (longer), but she's very private and self conscious. I am stunned we were allowed to share this with you here on The We in Me Podcast... We do so hope it's enjoyed. This was a time in life where I (Erika) was hardly ever present, constantly dissociating and very "switchy." It was around this time when I was beginning to lean towards giving up on finding help. My parts on the other hand had very different plans... PLEASE NOTE: There is adult content explicit language in this episode because you'll be hearing some from Anger (capital A) and Jynx. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into our lives, my life before my diagnosis, and Bob's writing. We find her beyond good at what she does and how she explains us without giving away too much is pretty neat. In some of our own opinions she is one of my most talented parts. Oh and to our Canadian friends, you'll hear a bit about that too. We are Planning something special for the holiday season as we know it's a difficult time of year for so many, so stay tuned if you've been enjoying the "We Read,' episodes! Please send your comments questions and suggestions to theweinmeblog@gmail.com Find us on Twitter: @TheWeinMe Blog: theweinme.com Want to help support our work and The We in Me Podcast?

Terminology & Dissociative Disorders #8
In today's episode I'll be discussing various terms you may come across in the DID community as well as different Dissociative Diagnoses. It's just me today, so we hope you enjoy and bare with my wandering thought processes. As always, please practice self care when listening and know your own limits, if you need a break take one. Thank you to Versus the Awake for allowing us to use their music. "The Truth Is," quickly became one of our favorite songs last year. His voice is so powerful, we hope you are all enjoying the music on our episodes!

There is a clear list of rules for participation and safety of all involved. It is not a child alter/part group, but that is left up to system's to decide whether or not under 18's participate. For us, The We in Me, we go based on ourselves not specifically age, BUT young/younger minded system members for us are not allowed to use the internet without the assistance of Jynx or another system member. This is what works for us. #DIDChat Twitter: @HashtagDIDChat For those who enjoyed our "We Reads" episode, don't worry we do have a few more of those planned; the next one is scheduled for the 25th of this month, so stay tuned!

Happy Halloween - The We Reads #6
Greetings everyone and welcome to a special little episode of The We in Me, Podcast. As many of you know some of my parts, one in particular, enjoys reading aloud to people. She has been doing this for sometime and has done some voice acting work over the years- with the assistance of Jynx. We decided to use the podcast to also help some of my parts. This is something she enjoys as several of you know she started up again in recent years reading stories to littles in a few private DID Groups we're apart of. :) We decided to break up some of our episodes as trauma can be a heavy overwhelming topic with some enjoyable self care episodes. Please note! This episode may not be suitable for children or littles alike, please use discretion when listening.

Spilling Rice all Over the Cat's Kimono...Wait? #5
Welcome to an episode of, "The We in Me," Reads. We (my parts & I) will be taking posts from our own blog as well as, guest posts and other things we've written but never published and reading to you... This suggestion came months ago from a few friends of ours that enjoyed one of my parts story telling style. We are apart of a few smaller DID groups online and a few artistic communities, and as a part of that there have been opportunities for us to read other peoples work; which we enjoyed doing. One part in particular loves narrating various pieces of written word for people to enjoy; so much so in fact that Jynx and I have begun looking into finding authors who are seeking voice actors for their own work to be published on audible and other audio book platforms. We wanted to share our words with you in our own voice(s). (This Episode comes with EXPLICIT LANGUAGE WARNING) We hope you enjoy these episodes and thank you, again, to those who have been suggesting it to us. We appreciate everyone who listens and continues to support us.
