Most everywhere we post, we do so openly, as a DID system. We strongly dislike hiding.
There is one exception and this is with our cross-stitching. In our cross-stitching groups we all post under patches, or Sierra, We spend a lot of time trying to come across as one.
We wanted, needed a place where our DID didn’t matter, where we didn’t feel it could be an issue, or made us different. We want/wanted? to be just like everyone else.
This has caused a problem though. There are stitching people who have a multiply account and we are now wondering do we invite them or not? It’s such a difficult decision for us.
We belong to a few cross-stitch groups and we enjoy them. We found one that is owned by someone in one of our groups that is for stitchers with mental or phsyical problems. We want to join but are afraid. We are afraid of being ostracized and of who knows what else. We just don’t know what to do.
For now we continue to keep it separate, perhaps some day that will change.
