Ivan Returns

March 22, 2008

Hey….this is Ivan…..I’m back after a couple of days of being mostly inactive……Athena and The Integral held down the fort. Something is irritating one or more of us in our system. We’re not sure what that irritant is yet; at least I’m not sure what it is. It’s not uncommon for us to have a lot of trouble figuring out who is upset and about what (the “about what” can be an even greater challenge to identify) I can tell that someone is upset because the body hasn’t been getting enough to eat lately. Whoever is in charge has on occasion forgotten to eat, or eaten very late. Our sleeping pattern is off too. The body sleeps very late at night and doesn’t wake up on time in the morning, and then we’re very unproductive. Failure to remember to eat enough and on time is a result of someone being upset. It’s not a “vindictive” thing that one or more of us does to one another; we’re way beyond trying to get revenge on each other. It’s triggered more by anxiety and overload than anything else.

Other than that….not much else is new right now. I’m keeping the body up too late as usual….I need to put some fuel in, because Athena forgot to eat breakfast, The Integral took over at some point during the day, and then either a)forgot that Athena hadn’t eaten breakfast, or b) got very engrossed into playing Spider Solitaire on the computer, and didn’t eat lunch/dinner until 5 in the afternoon!

Our life can be “interesting” to say the least……




  1. I think you’ve described yourselves as an autistic multiple. If not, then sorry for being mistaken.
    Autistic people often have trouble eating and sleeping regularly, especially when overloaded. Add multiplicity into the mix, and regulating that becomes more difficult. I’m a single autistic, and it takes either external cues or extra effort to make sure I eat, and overload and hunger makes eating even more difficult.

  2. Ettina:
    Yes, you are correct.

    Multiplicity doesn’t ALWAYS make eating more difficult, but it certainly can. Each one of us reacts to overload differently.

    One of us will respond in much more depth when we’re not at school…..
