Mon, Jul 1 11:42am · dissociative identity disorder (DID): anyone with this diagnosis? in Mental Health

Hi everyone, I do think that DID can be cured. But I think that only happens when you grow old enough and strong enough to absorb all the pain and trauma that you pushed out of awareness when you were little. Basically, you have to reparent yourself. You also have to be able to accept everything that happened and allow yourself to feel the emotions. It's very hard but doable. Then you need to forgive. Forgiveness is very important. I think then you can move on with your life as a whole person.

Mon, Jun 17 8:08am · Seeking advice for first time Mayo Clinic visit with toddler (patient) in Visiting Mayo Clinic

Hi I have 25 years experience taking my son to mayo clinic. He still goes back for follow-ups. He had two or three procedure in St. Marys. Personally I think its more convenient to have a rental car because Rochester is small and convenient to drive around. I have used Priceline to research hotels. But it's also good to call to see if there's a mayo rate. That's usually about what Priceline costs but you don't need to prepay. You can get a 5 day pass for $25 for unlimited parking. That's probably the best deal. Parking is not expensive at mayo clinic.

Hi Rosemary, my last 5k was the women run the Twin Cities 5k. So I am still doing them when I can. I don't know though about the summer heat. One thing I got involved with recently is salvation army emergency disaster services. I am going on deployment this summer. I'm in good enough shape so the running really helped.

Hi everyone, I finished my hot dash 5k this morning and got my serving of Minnesota hot dish. I did my race a little under one hour. That's not fast at all. But my goal is to get outside and stay active. I got another medal to add to my collection. I've gotten six 5k medals since I started jogging last year.

Hi my son is doing well. He goes to a day program for people with disabilities. I finished my 5k today. I just try to stay under one hour. I don't go fast. Just steady. Can you do cardio work in a gym? I did that for a long time before I ever tried to run outside.

Hi everyone, I do have a 5k race scheduled tomorrow. It's called Hot Dash. When you finish you get a serving of Minnesota hot dish. I didn't have a race in February but I did Polar Plunge for Special Olympics. I'm hoping to just finish tomorrow.
