I just got diagnosed with DID. I read a book by Martha Stout called "The Myth of Sanity" there is a wide range to this disorder. It can range from simple day dreaming to multiple personalities. There is still a lot I don't understand about it. I guess I am on the lower end of the spectrum, I have an "alter" but it is not separate from me. It is more of an "out of character" situation that causes a lot of confusion and heartache. I also experience lost time, and forgetfulness. I want to learn how to control this, techniques on how to keep myself integrated and how to recognize when I am not. I see that this board doesn’t get much traffic but I am willing to learn alongside anyone that is interested. DID is very common as I am finding out, and seems to go hand in hand with PTSD. I am surprised I had so much trouble finding support groups and discussions.
