Default I need a Life coach

Any ideas how, who or yes?

Does or will it work (knowing about the DID)?

We thrive in controlled environments like institutions.

Or at like a job almost.

I think you would probably be better off finding a therapist rather than a life coach.Besides,where I live a therapist would cost less.

I don't know if insurance would pay for a life coach, but they usually do pay for therapists

When I graduated from the University of Central Florida, I truly needed a mentor to manage my career. I know that the University had mentors for their scholarship students. But for most of us we had no one. I needed someone to help me plan and manage my career!!!! If I had that type of support, even with the dissociative disorder I would have been successful.


I also would have been okay if I had had someone, like you say, to help me manage my life. My parents never talked to me about anything important. I did not know how to pick a spouse. I did not know how to manage my friendships. I did not know how to pick a career. I chose engineering and it was a mistake.


In an ideal world, your parents are your mentors, life coaches, confidants, etc. etc.

Right. I grew up hearing ‘figure it out for yourself’.

I got crappy insurance. Therapist would have to be out of pocket, but need to look into different insurance.

Why we need a life coach no idea thinking about it. I guess another part was wanting one.

((((AlwaysChanging2)))) I'm sorry you're struggling. If you can, try to change insurance and see if there's one that allows you to see a therapist. I think that might be helpful. I'm sorry

I don't know much when it comes to life coaches. It could definitely be a benefit, as long as they're experienced with DID. I do agree that you should look into better insurance to get a therapist.
