Inside Multiple Minds

Jennifer Silvernights

My goal in sharing my stories and life experiences is to highlight mental health issues. I want to offer hope and support for people who suffer from mental illness. I would like to help family members, loved ones and survivors by offering insights about what those that live with a diagnosis experience and need from you. Together we can be stronger, healthier, and happier.

I am certain at some point during my thirty-year journey toward recovery, a mental health professional spoke to me about the importance of routines. I am equally certain, that one of the only things I practiced routinely, was reject that idea. I had what I felt were go...

It never ceases to amaze me how insensitively and inaccurately the media portrays Dissociative Identity Disorder. The plots tend to go something like this: someone has committed a heinous crime! Mild mannered Miss Jennifer is so sweet that butter wouldn’t melt in her m...

At the beginning of my epic journey of self discovery four years ago I was terrified of how people would view me if I shared my diagnosis. I spent the majority of my life pretending to be “normal.”  Occasionally I would admit to what I considered my less controversial...

One of the hardest things to navigate as a person living with a mental health condition, is how and when to tell the people in your life about your illness. Who do you tell? Why do you tell them? What do you tell them? How soon is too soon to talk with a new romantic p...

There is no mental health topic considered more unspeakable than suicide. It is the taboo of all taboos. There is a deep shame associated with suicide that lingers like a black, toxic, persistent cloud. This taboo is so ingrained in us that people often speak of it onl...

Anxiety plays with your emotions in a host of conflicting ways. Your self esteem takes a major hit repeatedly as self doubt, and in my case some of my alternate personalities start chatting in my head. Their constant chatter is basically a laundry list of everything I...

When you live with mental illness some days are better than others. Days, weeks, or months may go by where I feel ok. I may not be killing it everyday but, things are going alright. I feel like I have a good handle on my life. Then right out of the blue one of the bad...

I have read that the core parts of a person's personality are set in early childhood. It is made up of both our DNA and our life experiences. That core identity forms mental models that we follow as we grow up. It influences our decisions as we mature. What does that r...
