The Crisses

When we were 16 we discovered that we weren't alone in our head. And we decided to live as an intentional family. Since, we've been diagnosed, asked whether we wanted to integrate, embarked on a journey of wrestling with PTSD and triggers, unloaded a boatload of baggage, and decided that we enjoy our shared life. This podcast covers many issues about being multiple, about living together in harmony, and more. We are the main contributor to and admin for Kinhost.org, Crisses.org and our newest website TheCrissingLink.com.

    012 - Panic Reactions: 8 Important F-Words

    00:0000:00

    Panic Reactions: 8 Important F-Words (012)

    We've all heard of "fight or flight" reactions. In this episode we outline 8 different panic reactions and how they play out in multiplicity.

    Why are there predictable roles in a multiple system? We outline 8 "F-Word" panic reactions: Fight, Flight, Freeze, Fawn, Follow, Fortify, Fabricate and Facilitate, and then tie them into roles we play in our multiple system and why it's important to helping build system trust.

    This is part of a series of podcasts leading up to a capstone on System Trust Issues.

    Trigger warning: A few mentions of panic-worthy situations, internal prosecutors, and as usual we could always trigger something. It's always possible others in your head are interested, so a little tip: Listen with the intent for everyone in your system to be able to hear it too: put it on an internal loudspeaker, so that they don't need to front to hear.

    003 - A Multiple’s View of the DSM-V Criteria

    00:0000:00

    When a person is newly-diagnosed, the criteria they're diagnosed under can be a mystery. The Crisses tackles what the DSM-V criteria (the standards by which diagnoses are given) mean from a layperson's point of view, with examples of how each criteria may be applied.

    Trigger warning: We can't remember if there was anything triggering about this episode. There probably is. The world is a trigger-happy unsafe place. Unfortunately. Please attend to your own safety. We go into state-dependent memory, memory gaps, a variety of styles of dissociation, childhood play, drugs & alcohol use, mentioning possession (it's in the criteria), channeling, religion, etc. It covers a lot of ground, and mentions many things in passing. Warning: Mentions book When Rabbit Howls by Truddi Chase and our reactions to it. Does not mention any specific contents of book.

    002 - Two Heads Are Better than One - Remastered

    00:0000:00

    Originally Published April 30, 2005.

    This is a remastered version (2017) of the second podcast for Many Minds on the Issue (2005).

    The Crisses come to you from the NYC streets, with a discussion of how some people believe they become multiple.  This episode takes a multiple-eye view of the phenomenon.

    This episode gives an idea of the range of subjective experience and sleuthed-together origin stories within the community.  Note that psychology cannot identify subjective experience, and we go a little into objectivity in psychology in the next episode. 

    Trigger warning: This episode goes into a variety of ways people believe they became multiple.  This is a rough consolidation of The Crisses' experience in the multiple community and mentions situations such as Walk-Ins.  Also note, The Crisses are from Brooklyn, and episodes may contain what you consider to be cursewords.
