About Me. Okay . . . Us.

Hi.

I’m Jeffery, a childhood abuse survivor with DID*. I grew up in a violent army family devoid of love and affection.  I am from everywhere and nowhere; having moved a LOT as a young kid. I have many “people” inside.  They were created by a abused young mind in a creative attempt to survive what I’ve been told was ‘horrendous abuse” and deal with the cultures I lived in over time.

I have had about 24 years of traditional schooling and am a compulsive learner, really quite OCD about it sometimes.  I was trained by the US Army to ‘do things’ as a young child. I’m still trying to figure out what went on with that.  I have 3 blogs here: The Little Shop of Horrors (tales from my childhood mostly), this one (Current events and for my more adult alters / hosts to be posting on) – and another one, one for my Teenager Alter.  His name is Matthew.  We have quite a Crowd.

There is Little Michael who gave birth to Little Mikie, the boy he wanted to ‘be’.
There’s the Soldier Michael created to please his dad.
There is “13”, a personality left over from the Old Days (should say ‘daze’) when we came back to the ‘hood.
There’s 21, a “split” from a part of myself, when “I” began to reform. (I quite remember that day and time: a ‘new person’ was ‘born’ in a matter of minutes . . . on a ride at a fair.)
There’s “Jeffery”, my mediator ‘half’ or part, which ensures peace between my parts and pieces if things get a little bit wild.  He came about last year. I think he was sent by the child or the Core.
There’s “the Marine”, the Recorder (he’s been here since I was a small child), the “Beast” who used to be really bad (but who is ‘asleep’ and okay and kind to US now – but look out.  He can bite.  Quite literally.)
There are the “Science Guys” – 3’s a crowd, but I soak up information and knowledge like a sponge.  About everything technical I see and read or hear ‘sticks’ with me for a VERY long time.  I can still ‘see’ books from first grade; my notes in high school – lots of things.

Those are just a few.  I am a dynamic system.  Think “Tinkertoys”.  Parts that fit together to form one – with a few rules.  (Like the “3 on Top” one.)

I am a renaissance man.  I have several curio cabinets (ancient and old) chock full of natural wonders, specimens, collections from my travels and the like.  And about a half dozen shadow boxes full as well.  (The grandchildren love them.)

I have learned a lot of stuff, but none of it made me wise” ~ an old man once said to me.  I took that grain of wisdom and tucked it under my belt – along with many other ones.

One day I think I’ll build me a mountain out of it.  Then climb up on top and see who comes around.

(not that I’m wise but I’m learning . . . and everyone keeps telling me I’m the smartest one they know . . . poor them.  They could do so much better than me . . .)

      Thank you very much! The Group (crowd) has accepted you input. Would you care to help us decide which format we should be using? The so-called (by the Author) “Freelancing” style (free-flow conscious stream), or a more formal output? (On behalf of the Group: The Scientist)
