After looking at different reborn dolls for some time, I decided that I wanted a Skya asleep model this past week. I ended up finding one that I really liked, and we went ahead and ordered it! She came over the weekend and is beautiful, and very realistic. Here are some pictures:
As you can see, she is very adorable and is newborn sized. She wears newborn sized clothes. Luckily, there is a sale going on with Carter’s right now, so I was able to afford to buy her some baby clothes.
It’s great to hold her. She is weighted like a real baby, and her head is floppy like an actual newborn. I feel like I could hold her all day. She’s a little hard to dress, though, because of the shape of her arms and legs. Plus, I’m probably more careful than I need to be when I dress her. I just don’t want to break her or anything because she’s so fragile!
I was going to have my boyfriend buy me a reborn for Christmas, but decided to buy one early so that I could pick her out and make sure that it was one that I really wanted. I’m glad that I did. David told me that I was going to end up with five different dolls from different people because there were so many dolls on my Wishlist. I’m glad that I narrowed my search down and found one!
I also saw my counselor on Saturday. He wants to start system-mapping next week. I’m kind of excited about this, but some of the parts aren’t sure that they want to do it. Not all of my parts get along well with each other, especially the littles. They’re not sure if they want to get to know each other. My counselor said that no one needs to be named or mapped though if they don’t want to.
David and my five year anniversary is on Thursday. We’re going out to the Olive Garden. This means that I’ll have to cheat on my diet a little and eat some milk, which I have an IgG allergy too. Even though I’m allergic, every once in awhile I will eat some, and I’ll eat wheat with a glutenease pill, which is similar to a Lactaid pill for those who are lactose intolerant. It seems to work pretty well, but it’s also not something that I’d want to do on a regular basis. My biggest worry about eating food at the Olive Garden is actually that it likely contains eggs, which I’m pretty allergic too. It’s too bad that I am, though, because eggs are one of my favorite foods.
My Psychiatrist still wants me to try new stimulants for ADHD, but after my psychosis due to Ritalin last Spring, I’m definitely not going to. I’ve decided that I’m going to get a second opinion from a DID informed psychiatrist. Sometimes I wonder if I really have all of these diagnoses or if they are all a result of severe early childhood trauma. This is why I need to find an expert in this area.
