Karen answers Lorrie & Dan

My God Karen?

You are full of fascinating stories! I read your answer about the hand accident and how you got you driverʼs license. I barely got my license just being me. What a way to go? I bet Holdon took the whole class. How do you think you passed the test? Do you recall any part of the drivers ed class? I think its great how you just did it, took the test and all. Did you buy a dress that day for the wedding you were going to? Was it Holdon who picked out your dress or did he just drive you to the mall? If I knew you I would kiss the ground you walk on. Sweet Jesus you are awesome! Donʼt get insulted but you really had me and my husband laughing.

Dear Lorrie & Dan,

Thank you for your interest in the daily life stories of my alters.  There are hundreds of such stories, because with seventeen alters there was always something going on!

Regarding who took the driver education classes, that would be Karen 3 with Holdon and a few of the alters “watching”.  The knowledge about driving I acquired would come through one alter, and once known, would become known to most of the other alters as well, as long as the information didn’t need to be walled off.  It’s kind of hard to know how involved any one part was because after integration, I received all these memories and now I experience them as my own.

Yes, I did buy a dress that day, and loved it!  It was dark red and very feminine, and special to me.  Holdon, being a male alter, had no interest in shopping, however the choice was not mine alone.  I had alter help.  Remembering that day brings a smile to my face. As a matter of fact, I have a picture of my husband and me when I was wearing that dress.

I’m glad about the laughter you shared with your husband.  I laugh at many of the things my alters have done, too! As I look back and recall these stories I find a sense of calm and appreciation for each and every alter that was born. Laughter really is the best medicine.

Thank you for all your compliments.
