Mental health issues expand quickly and information is available on the Internet 24/7. Keeping up with the constant stream of news reports and peer-reviewed articles is a daunting task so I’m starting a list of links and titles of news reports that you may find interesting or useful in an evolving ticker-tape sort of delivery.*

Just want to put this in print, for future reference, and be done with it.
Many times people have come here & stated that I was kicked off a group site, or that I’ve been banned, etc. This is an effort to discredit me and prove I am disrespectful to others.
It’s worth publishing the truth.
Below is a copy of the notice received from Psych Forums, a series of chat boards for people discussing mental health issues.
Sorry, I don’t know the date.
You have been permanently banned from this board.
Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.
Reason given for ban: Being very disrespectful to people with DID by saying it does not exist
A ban has been issued on your username.*
Bottom line? If you want to participate at PsychForums, don’t be honest.

I have never made a disparaging remark on a “survivors” blog.
