my second cousin just had a funeral on Saturday and I’ve been sitting here shutting people out and I know I shouldn’t be but I’m just really depressed and upset and I’ve had a flare of dissociative identity disorder we keep switching and we’ve also had a major system crisis so everybody is new trying to figure out who everybody is and what their role is if any of you have any suggestions or would sit there and just talk me through it that would be helpful
