Allen,
Here's food for thought. When you say her face is different on each side as if that were abnormal I keyed on that. First because my upper body is lopsided due to the abuse of my foster mother.
then I remember women I have been with over the years, all of whom are not symetrical. And in general discussions it is a truism that nearly none of us is symetrical in any of our parts, that is why perfect symetry is so appealing.

My thought is that you may be reading something into a natural difference that is not there. I may be wrong but I thought it might be interesting to you to hear that perspective.

Thanks for your input on this question.

I think her face does reflect bilateral emotional assymetry. I know there is such a thing. I have it myself. That's why I was able to pick it out of the faces I have included in this thread.

Dissociative disorder sometimes affects the use of the eyes. I have that problem and I know of others who have it. There is another condition called amblyopia which a bunch of people have and it is not necessarily at all connected with dissociation. But when the eyes are involved it makes the eye problem much more difficult to treat. And when the eyes are involved it apparently results in the bilaterality of the face. Beyond that I don't know what other conditions cause it to affect the eyes. I don't think any opthalmologists or optometrists in my area understand these things at all.

What about this guy?


This guy had an injury at birth and has worked very hard on his eyes.

He worked on hard on his eyes because he is vain "into-himself" because he has had to "promote himself", to pay his bills, like any actor or promoter would have to.

That doesn't mean he and or everyone that has a "crooked" look about them determines that they have dissociative identity disorder.

My 2 cents worth.

I have been doing my eye exercises since this thread was active. As a result, I went through some tremendous eye strain and pain for maybe a week. Then the strain and pain started to subside. I think I have been making real progress in doing this.

Doing this has made me aware in a new way how my eye problem was caused by abuse.

If this offends anybody I'll gladly take it down.
