We've been monitoring our blood pressure off and on again b/c our family is predisposed to heart disease, and we're slightly overweight, so we want to make sure that we're still relatively healthy and not in danger of anything while we're losing the weight that we need to. In February, I broke our leg. Fell down an escalator for those curious! I waited a day to go to the hospital b/c I thought it was a sprain. While there, I had to be the fronter b/c it was "too much pain" for Maxim and Cloud was pissy.
Despite this "horrible horrible" pain, my BP was 110/70, which is a little high but still well within the normal range.
Last Monday, we had another issue b/c we're a medical wonder, or just get sick a lot, and my BP was the same.
Later that same day, Maxim went to get a fitness test done. At the beginning of it, he got his BP taken and it was 125/85. A full 15 points higher, and putting us boarderline for hypertension.
Today, Maxim went to the doctor for the same medical wonderland reason and his BP was a whopping 130/90.
WTF? Has anyone else noticed a drastic change like this when system mates change out?
-When you wake up in the morning, how does that work? Do you all wake at once, or one by one?
-Are any of your system members bilingual, or speak a language other than English and no English at all?
-How often do new members show up, or make themselves known?
-When one member is sick, or the body is sick, does everyone else get sick too?
If even a few people would care to satisfy my curiosity, I'd appreciate it. ^_^
We've had a displaced-neck-pain headache for the past couple days (when the chiropractor's closed for a long weekend, worse luck). Kat has just eaten a fair bit of chocolate. But, now that I'm out, I find that I'm affected way more by the bodies' sugar rush than its discomfort. For Kat, it's the other way around. Do any of you experience this kind of difference? Have any ideas as to what might cause it? Etc.
This is Tiea. I woke up today after having a fever 3 days and wanted enough water to fill a Ocean. Along with the Ocean I ordered Wanton and Eggdrop Soup and Mui Fun vegitable. I swear I've been sick and I think the whole system forgot to go shopping or eat, till I woke up. This has never happened before . I think everyone was afraid to go into the money without me knowing . Usially we all communicate so well , I guess I was too knocked out . Feel like Ive been living in a mixed up dream where I was paralized under anestisia or something , but I do remember it was posted we should look for a symbol to wear like a button or badge to identify us .
I woke up thinking of caterpillers and Butterflys and then Kaliedoscopes . I dont know if those were suggested. How is everyone out there tonight doin? Hi To all. Peace And Perusual with Chineese I am Hungrey yet still full. So glad no work tommorrow.
So which is it starve a fever or feed one ? I think I can safely say I did both
Peace to all Tiea
I have a silly question, and forgive me if it is awkward or scattered, but I am curious. I am part of Raziel system and only recently have had cause to front, to begin my own spiritual path. When I do front, however, I find it is sometimes difficult to manage the body. I myself am very poised and upright, but this body has been subjected to horrible posture for the longest time. Also, I find I lose balance on occassion. I was just wondering if any other's have had such or similliar experiences, and if so is it possible to mold the body into my mannerisms? I do hope I'm not being a bother, or posting inadequate questions. Thank you.

one of my inners claimed to know that the baby was there, before i lost it, and teased me about it, through one of my friends relaying stuff back. i think she (inner, not my friend... all my friends seem to be male, for some reason >_o) was amused when i lost it. i don't know why it bothers me so much that she claimed to be able to be around it... particularly because i DID lose it. inners couldn't affect a baby like that, right?
i didn't mind all so much having that happen to me a first time, but if she's feeling cruel and does it again... :/ i dunno. this is weighing on my mind a lot lately, as a lot of friends keep poking at me, thinking i'm pregnant again (blood test said no, but mistakes happen... argh)
so i guess... to anyone who is/has been pregnant, have any of your inners been able to notice it there, even before you did? or... anything like that? sorry if i'm not making sense, i'm typing as fast as i can, before i forget what i wanted to ask.
thanks for anything anyone can tell me. :)
For the last fifteen minutes my right arm and hand have behaved like something out of the movie "idle hands". Have you seen that movie? I swear my right arm is fucking possessed or something. It's like someone is co-fronting with me and they've got VERY strong control over ONLY one part of the body. It feels like someone is trying to front, but basically unable to. I feel really, REALLY stupid posting this, because it sounds so dumb and contrived, but it really isn't.
I've tried communicating with it(/him?) but it's being belligerent. I keep catching snatches of a name, which I think is Grant, but it won't do anything but be difficult.
OKAY. There! I've got my arm+hand back! Sweet. I can type with two hands again.
Anyway, it kept grabbing hold of things and trying to get me to stay put, which might have been really comical to someone outside the situation, but which was fucking scary to me. It felt SO weird, like someone had spliced part of their living, active body onto mine; their arm in place of my arm. I picked up an older male presence, there, who I think is named "Grant". Maybe it's connected, maybe it's someone who's trying to front... I've just never had anything so WEIRD happen before.
Has anyone experienced anything like this? Does anyone have any advice? I tried to talk to/reason with it, but it would just flip me off and go back to being someone else's arm.
This sort of thing has never happened to me. I've heard of visual and audio hallucinations. But, not...what would you call it? Textile hallucinations? Is that even a term? I don't know. It could be the left overs of an illness I just got over (not cool). Or it could be a new develpment for me. Either way I'm not too happy with it and could really use some info.
Sorry for the cross post...but I really want to figure this out. Thanks.
EDIT: Someone mentioned that it could be that my electrolytes are low. Since I'm getting over a stomach bug and am still a little dehydrated this is totally possible. Actually, it's probably all it is. Thank you everyone who responded!
Welcome to this fucked up world.

How should I feel about this? She never asked anyone in the system, and she nearly poisoned us! It's not that it didn't work out in the long run, but it's the point that I did miscarriage and yeah...
I feel lost...
( describing the situation here.. )
Do you think that anxiety disorders/manifestations have any correlation to dissociation/multiplicity? Can inner conflict or something of the sort between system members result in physical manifestations like pain or dizziness? Or are the two entirely separate/unrelated? How many people have problems with anxiety, as well as being multiple/plural?
Sorry if that's too many questions.. :) Just curious.

The body is worn out from being sick. So I'm the only one who can front. Though Katz seems able to co-front with me for short periods of time on occasion. I was wondering. Does anyone else have problems similar to this? That is, difficulty communicating within your system, or changing fronts when your body is pushed to its limits?
Would post about our system. But too tired right now.
Ember for the collective
That's when everyone decides "Hey, let's ignore the Earth/3d/Whatever body and just let it rot and suffer" and usually Fihel or Ruby or Ice end up having to tool along with the infection until it clears up. Enter Tanston. "Whoa girl, where'd you come from?" Yeah, my point exactly.
What I need, basically, is some suggestions. Here is the given though- There are no "host(s)" per se. It's usually someone likes to front a lot, and then someone else wants to, etc. But if you were to ask for the main person, you'd hear crickets chirping.
Actually, I just wanted to whine where people would see it and say "Oh, you poor thing, I hope you feel better soon" XD
But yes, suggestions are welcome, aside from kicking other people up front and saying "You deal with it" which seems to work... sort of.
Why yes, I am terribly doped up on Benadryl. Can you tell?
P.S.- I am well aware this is abnormally lighthearted... but why not, I say? There has to be some laughter as well as tears in any community! Also note that I am under the influence of Benadryl. I blame it on that.
