At current prices it costs me $4.10/day to run my A/C all day & night (Upstate NY). $2.74 running it only the hottest parts of the day (my usual unless nighttime temperatures or humidity necessitates running it all night). $127 max to run it all month.
We have a very unstable income; on level billing we'll pay for unpredicted overages over the winter so Today Crisses is setting Later Crisses up for ouch bills this winter. We use fans as much as possible.
Our spreadsheet translating Watts (or amps * 120 volts for US outlets) times minutes divided by 60 = KWH so we can figure out costs. We update current charges, it spits out costs. A 84W fan is costing $0.41/day for comparison. #ActuallyAutistic Spreadsheet in Apple Numbers showing 3 tables: 1 for various
(We made the spreadsheet due to an argument with our landlord that our chest freezer was blowing circuits, which is laughable. At the time the electric space heaters cost $6/day per heater, taking up nearly the whole circuit.)

You know how we're told that Kellogg invented corn flakes to control lust etc. etc. Actually, he invented grape-nuts, to do that. Post stole grape-nuts, added sweetener & salt, and sold it as a health supplement out from under the Kellogg brothers.
But wait there's more. Kellogg the doctor thought these things shouldn't have sugar or salt (maybe ahead of his time, eh?), and refused to mass-produce him and his brother bought the recipes from him, changed them, and sold the products — as breakfast.
So, now Kellogg the doctor sees the product doing well and tries to make his own "no, really THIS is Kellogg's cereal" product (without the salt & sugar) — you can guess how well that did. His brother sued him — and won the trademark battle.

@AWonderBall @LilyRoseMills There's basically 3 types of shame. Only one is the one we probably need to retain. “Normal” or adaptive shame is an internal monitor for threats to belongingness. “I did something wrong, and if people find out I may be rejected.”
@AWonderBall @LilyRoseMills Toxic shame as we call it are verbal messages of rejection, usually based on something we cannot change or our existence itself. We internalize these messages, and have a hard time letting them go.
@AWonderBall @LilyRoseMills We sang with an agemate; one day she told us we couldn't sing, that we had a bad singing voice. We were young (why it happened is complicated) — we stopped singing in front of people for 10 years. If people compliment our singing, that shame message comes up.

What do Jung's Archetypes, illuminated manuscripts, passing notes in class, and Abe Lincoln have to do with young plural & DID systems making videos on TikTok? Stick around, and try to laugh along with us…

#pluralgang #dissociadid #DIDchat #DIDOSDD
Jung was a very interesting fellow. He was heavily influenced by classical scholarship, read many languages, was interested in spiritism (seances, mediumship, channeling), studied mythology, the Bible, etc. These are the things he followed avidly.
Then he went on these inner world journeys. An idea he picked up from the spiritist movement where they would autowrite and go journeying and make elaborate accounts of their experiences. Thus The Red Book. But Jung didn't just write an account.

We want to talk about role models. Break that idea down and think about it…role models aren't meant to be perfect people. There are no perfect people. Investing too much in role models is a sign of issues on the raving fan end of the equation.
Encouraging raving fans is a problem on a potential role model's end of the equation. Having a need for adoration. Both ends have issues of a sense of lack and a need to fill, and potentially broken boundaries between them.
It becomes a toxic energy exchange between the adorers and the adored.

As both ends are flawed people, the chances these stories end tragically is very real. The adored, raised up on their pedestal, has enormous performance pressure.

Analyzing Brand et al 2012 more deeply, and we're so frustrated with this study. I hope they re-do a similar study for current practices and use it to help inform the ISST-D guidelines because this is *headdesk*.
The DID experts surveyed weren't recommending doing trauma work, for the most part. Barely used EMDR. Used CBT during the middle phases of therapy. There's good info in this document, but it's so out of date it's painful.
It looks like the majority of the experts surveyed recommend spending significant time repairing the therapeutic relationship. What EXACTLY is going on during therapy sessions that this becomes one of the major focuses of therapy?
