With all due respect, online spiritual communities haven’t been doing enough for people with schizoaffective and dissociative disorders.
⚠️Below this, I talk about things that may be triggering to those suffering from dissociative or schizoaffective disorders! Read safely⚠️
Obviously there is a difference between spiritual beliefs/practices and mental illness. Not everyone in those communities is someone with a mental illness that’s in danger, and the majority of them are kind well-intentioned people as is the case with most communities.
I also feel like a lot of criticism of those communities comes from cringe culture, and not genuine concern for anyone.
That being said!
I was a young teenager with undiagnosed OSDD-1B, and got heavily involved in the plural and otherkin community. Things like thoughtformed headmates, dimension hopping, and spiritual shifting led me to believe my dissociative symptoms were normal, and caused me to get worse.
I am glad to say I am now being professionally treated, but I would not be where I am now if I were still involved in those communities. Please be careful about the things you post, and how they may be affecting people with schizoaffective and/or dissociative disorders.
If you relate to my experience, I suggest talking to a mental health professional! Here is a link to a website that may help you find someone covered by insurance
The intention of this post is to help people with dissociative and schizoaffective disorders! Please do not be rude to me or anyone else on this post! You will be blocked.

Fuck it I’m mentally ill here’s some Jotakak headcanons + rambles
• Kakyoin isn’t some omnipotent god at video games. He’s pretty good at best, but he beats Jotaro constantly at... everything because Joot is somehow horrible at every single video game in existence. The bastard is really smug about it too
• Don’t worry though, Jotaro gets back at him by calling him short every two seconds
• “I’m not short, Jojo, you’re just freakishly tall.”
• “Same thing.”
• Kakyoin messes with his hair noodle thingie when he’s anxious or to stim with
• Kakyoin mentions liking cherries a few times (he’s not obsessed with them like the fandom insists that he is) and Jotaro starts buying him cherry related memorabilia for months. Kakyoin wants to tell him that he definitely doesn’t need cherry scented shampoo and conditioner but he’s so happy that Jotaro thought to buy it for him that he doesn’t say anything
• Kakyoin doesn’t really know that he has feelings for Jotaro for a while. Not because he’s denying his feelings or anything like that but because it’s been so long since he’s had a friend that he just thinks all of this is normal. It’s only when he gets closer to the rest of the Crusaders that he realizes that he feels different for Jotaro than everyone else (or when Polnareff slaps him in the face with the truth. Either one works tbh)
• Kakyoin wants to ask someone for help with this whole feelings thing but Joseph is Joseph and Polnareff is Polnareff so he either winds up going to Avdol or waits until the giant ball of homosexual building up in his stomach makes him ask Pol out of desperation
• This one’s more shitposty but I feel like Polnareff would give Kakyoin French phrases to say as “flirting.”
• The phrases in question are the worst profanities you’ll ever hear
• Which is why Kakyoin doesn’t trust Polnareff enough to use them
• Jotaro meanwhile just has an ‘oh fuck’ moment when they share a hotel room together
• He refuses to tell anyone about this ever
• Somehow Joseph finds out
• He screams
• The rest of the Crusaders are in the room
• You can imagine how this goes
• Star Platinum is an absolute dork that will not let go of Kakyoin and Hierophant Green once Jotaro has his oh fuck i like men moment
• Sometimes pre-relationship Kakyoin will wake up in the middle of the night feeling warm/uncomfortable and Star Platinum is just.. there. Holding his waist.
• The lil oras that Star makes to Hierophant is the single cutest thing you’ll ever hear
• Kakyoin is the only person allowed to wear Jotaro’s hat other than Joot himself. Joseph tried once, it did not end well.

So, yesterday we got another eventful night :'D
While I was talking/texting a very nice person and getting into games again and having a great time, a smell of burning started to creep in our house, we thought it was the neighbors again, so we didn't pay much attention to it
Its wasn't very noticeable at first, but it got to a point where it was almost unbearable
I had stop my conversation (sadly, cause I was really enjoying it ;-;) and headed out to see what the hell was going on
We got out and OH MY GOD THE HOUSE IS ON FIRE!!!
They live reasonably far from us but we still can see the ceiling of their house from afar
And even from where we were standing WE COULD SEE FIRE
Not just smoke!!! FIRE PEOPLE!!! FIRE!!!
We got on the car and headed there to help them out and also help them not burn the whole mother fucking forest
When we got there, we saw a dog and a little girl hugging it tightly, a Man, the father in this case, in panic, and a woman and a child screaming from the inside
Apparently, the other kid, a little boy, got his arm stuck on a wash machine and the mother was desperately trying to get him out, to no avail
I was going to get inside to help him but roommate decided to YEET ME BACKWARDS!!!!
Before I could get up, they ducked down and kissed me
AND WHEN I WAS ABOUT TO ASK WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT FOR!!!???
They softly said "I love you" and proceed to sprint to the house
I stayed staring for what it seemed eternity... It was as if the time has slowed down so much it almost stopped completely...
The only thing I could hear or feel was my increasing heartbeat
But, everything got back when Miss oh honey FAITED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
I luckly was able to catch her
I stayed holding her for the rest of the time
When Roommate got back they were holding the kid, but they also managed to burn both of their arms as well
They passed the kid to his parents and shortly after the firefighters were finally there
They checked Roommate and said that even if the burns are big, they are not severe, so they would be better in some time if they applied a lotion for burns (that we have thankfully)
When we finally got home I applied the lotion on their arms and we all sat in the sofa to sleep since roommate couldn't lay in bed without going crazy with the itching on their arms
I sleeped for at least 5 hours until I heard light steps on the hallway
I slowly got up so not to wake up Roommate and followed the noises to our room were I saw Miss oh honey kneeling on the floor and pulling a tiny box from underneath our bed
She gestured me to not make sound and to sit beside her, I did just that
Inside of the box was a cute little octopus with big shiny eyes, tiny tentacles and purple fur all over, but, the tiny octopus was also guarding a tiny brown box with painted flowers, that inside had three rings, one with my name, another with Miss oh honeys name and the other with Roommates name
I was a little surpriesed with it, and when I turned to Miss oh honey she was sobbing!!!
I panicked a little but then she spoke
"This is so unfair" (she was sobbing and hicuping a lot, so I'm just gonna write it without all that, so please, read her lines like I wrote all the sobbing details please)
"Roommate is getting hurt a lot!!! Like, first I almost rejected them and then made them wait, and then, if that wasn't enought, they get their armes burned in FUCKING FIRE OF SOMEONE ELSES MISTAKE!!!! I WAS SOOOO SCARED I DIDN'T JUST NOT HELP!!! NO! I MANAGED TO BE EVEN MORE OF A BURDEN!!!"
"Woah woah woah, thats not true"
"IT FUCKING IS!!! THEY ARE SUFFERING GREM"
"Easy there sweety, thats not true at all, you know they understand that marige is a big deal and are willing to wait for us to come to them! And about the fire, we could do nothing bout it! They would never let us go there even if we tried!!! So please, don't blame yourself for this baby" (at this point I started giving her little kisses on the cheeks to take the tears from droping)
She looked at me for a moment, I kissed her forehead and then she said
"I wanna give my anwser to Roommate, I wanna tell them Yes"
"Go ahead sweetheart, but please, wait until they are awake"
"Alright but... Don't you wanna give them your anwser?..."
"I do, and I will... I will tell them yes"
After that we waited for Roommate to wake up, but they sleeped all day long ;-;
Me and Miss oh honey are waithing for them to wake up now
Hope y'all having a great day/afternoon/evening/night :3
