Last March I returned to school after a two-year break, and when I say, “break” I truly mean it. I spent almost two years in between inpatient and day programs almost constantly. I was on numerous different medications at a trial and error basis.
Which I think just made my symptoms worse.
After about a year in a half my psychiatrist flaked out and moved out of the country. I decided that I was just going to stop the meds.
I did no tapering measures, which was the worst thing I probably could have done. I had influenza-ish symptoms for about 3 months because of the withdrawal. I totally do not recommend doing that ever.
So that was almost year ago. I am living life today “all natural”. I know that I do feel different without any type of psychotropic drugs, not better or worse just different.
My birth part (what I refer to as I guess the host part? I do not necessarily have a specific host part because it varies) has not really been in the outside world a whole lot in the past year.
Therefore, when we decided to return to school it was as we were just starting school from the very beginning. This also means that we did not know how to study as well as the birth part.
Everything had to be re-learned. I learn very different from my other parts but currently I am the one attending school.
However, taking tests is one thing we cannot all compromise to do yet, everyone likes to help and they think that they always know the answers. When in all actuality they do not. They just like circling things or coloring in the bubbles. Then we barely pass the test.
Nevertheless, on tests in essay form we always can work together to combine ideas and come out with an awesomely written essay with many different perspectives. I guess this is a pro of being multiple and taking essay tests.
So in conclusion: Multiple-choice tests are not the choice for this multiple.
