One time my counselor, Ken, told me that he thinks I sleep walk and sleep talk because of my “Other Courtney.” She needs to have an outlet, a way to connect with the world, he said. She feels she cannot always be her true self during the day so she must embark on nightly adventures in her sleep.
Great, I thought. It’s finally happening. I am being diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Fortunately, Ken informed me that I was getting ahead of myself. He simply felt that the more I wrote down my feelings, thoughts, and experiences, the less I would sleepwalk. He was right. What started out as simply a sleepwalking blog has turned into a random ramblings, recipe saving, photo sharing, opinion slinging, emotion releasing, and an occasional sleepwalking story blog.
Through blogging and keeping a journal, I have found a love of writing that I never knew existed. So here it is, The Other Courtney.
