My partner is very educated in the mental health field but I feel at times she just does not get it. I tried to explain to her that she does have the capacity to determine what she says and does but I have not learned how to get my alters to work with me all the time. So there will be things we say or do that are totally out of character for me - because it is not me. I told her that yes I was accountable for what they did but told hold it against me would not help. Example: Some of my adult alters wrote a letter in which they talked about how much they hated my partner and how much of a hypochondriac my parter was. Well some of what they said was true but not all of it. I tried to explain to my partner that I loved her and did not share similar views as them or I wouldn't be in the relationship. She is hurt and feels like this is the way I feel. How to I get her to understand that just because they say or do something does not mean it is fact?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
