    Discovering That My Sad Self Is Only 15

    Discovering That My Sad Self Is Only 15

    I switched during therapy and my therapist asked me what age I was. I felt the urge to say 15. Something significant must have happened when I was 15, but as my Funny self, I have limited memories when it comes to my childhood.

    My partner feels weird about one of my dominant identities being so young.

    My therapist and my Sad Self discussed talking about the trauma.
