What is dissociative identity disorder (DID)? Dissociative identity disorder (DID) was formerly called multiple personality disorder. People with DID develop one or more alternate personalities that function with or without the awareness of the person"s usual personality. DID is one of a group of conditions called dissociative disorders. Dissociative disorders are mental illnesses that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, consciousness or awareness, identity and/or perception mental functions that normally work smoothly. When one or more of these functions is disrupted, dissociative symptoms can result.

Relieve stress with these powerful breathing exercises

One of the most helpful pieces of knowledge I have learned so far in my career was from a gentleman named Eric Gentry. He is a licensed psychotherapist and a PhD of Psychology. He specializes in working with people who have experienced trauma among many other things. He presented at a seminar I attended several years ago and opened my eyes to the wonderful world of the Vagus Nerve. No, not Vegas as in dancers and sunshine and party time. Vagus as in, one of the most important parts of our body that can either make us feel really good or make us feel really bad. Imagine this beauty running close to parallel to the spine, from the base of your skull down down down to your tailbone. Believe me, you want to be BFF's with your Vagus nerve because it can help you calm your body, regulate your emotions and aid in your digestive system. Are you feeling anxious right now? That's because your body is holding very tight all around your Vagus nerve. It probably feels uncomfortable, right???

COVID-19 vaccine How to access COVID-19 vaccine

Those included in Phase 1a and Phase 1b Tier 1 (B1) are now eligible to be vaccinated (see "How vaccine will be prioritized" section below). If you confirmed your eligibility using the state's Phase Finder tool, you must still schedule an appointment with a vaccination site or submit a request form on the Public Health website to be referred to a facility with vaccine. Phase Finder only determines eligibility; it does not schedule you an appointment or add you to a waiting list. There are multiple options for seeking COVID-19 vaccination appointments. Each option includes different processes for scheduling appointments. However, vaccine supply is very limited across the state. Appointments may be limited or unavailable.
