Here’s the deal: my boyfriend is having a hard time wrapping his head around DDNOS/DID, and we have talked about this and he is willing to really make an effort and research it. However, he is pretty busy with uni work at the moment, so I had this idea that we could watch United States of Tara together, and save the DID-books until his course is over. Now, I do realize that United States of Tara is not really meant to be educational, and I know that it will probably be a bit overdramatic at times, so my question to those of you who have seen it; how good/bad is it? Is it sort of accurate, or is it totally overdramatic? Does it give a bit of insight into what it’s like to live with this condition, or would watching it just add to my boyfriend’s confusion?
I was also wondering, for my own sake, is it triggering?
Any input would be appreciated! Oh, and if there are other resources (books, shows, movies, documentaries and so on) for people living with someone who struggles with DDNOS/DID you can recommend, it would mean the world to me!
