Multiple Personalities Support Group

Dissociative identity disorder is a diagnosis described as the existence in an individual of two or more distinct identities or personalities, each with its own pattern of perceiving and interacting with the environment. At least two of these personalities are considered to routinely take control of the individual's behavior, and there is also some associated memory loss, which is beyond normal forgetfulness. This memory loss is often referred to as "losing time". These symptoms must occur independently of substance abuse or a general medical condition. Dissociative identity disorder was initially named multiple personality disorder, and, as referenced above, that name remains in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and...

  • My son and I are not seeing eye to eye on this subject. He doesn't understand DID or PTSD and I'm having a devil of a time trying to explain it to him. He's almost 14 but he has the mind of a 7 or 8 year old. Now I know most very young kids wouldn't even begin to understand DID but how do you know when the right time to talk to them is?And yes, before anyone suggests that I take him to see a...

    Who Do I Believe?

    I'm middle-aged, and only this year recognized that I've had DID my whole life. My psychiatrist and therapist are both working with me now, but I've been given advice that seems strange and possibly wrong. Wanted to run it by everyone here and see what you think...The recognition of DID came with an especially bad episode of major depression with a string of triggering events I hadn't tried to...

    Hi, I just thought i would try this out, there isnt really anyone i would feel comfortable talking to about this stuff.
  • Today I'm me but most of the time when I come in here it's one of my Littles that has something to say. I have 7 little girls. They are 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, 17. I don't know much about any of them but apparently they've all been pulled out and questioned except the 17 year old. My therapist is going to try and pull her out in the morning. I wish her luck. I wouldn't even mess with it if I were...
  • My boyfriend and I have been together two years now, but it was only recently that I had any direct contact with his alters -or "voices" he calls them.At first it was just general things, talking, getting to know them as one by one all five showed themselves. But about a month ago things got much more serious when a voice with a history for being violent came out, and to our surprise, actually...

  • I'm the oldest alter out of the six of us. I don't know how it works for most cases but we are very well aware of each other and of the Host. Right now the Host is in bad shape and is R&R and I'm taking her place for a while. It's a sticky mess and I don't know how to fix it except do what I'm doing. I'm turning to the support group because I think we as a group of individuals may need a little...
  • This is my first post. I have made an account my parents cannot track me on so I can find answers. They do not know I have it.Where do I begin. When my body was about 3 the first personality was formed. It stayed in control until the age of 15 when without knowing it, lost control of the body and I became the main personality. I have no idea how I formed. I have access to every memory of his and...

    Confused

    I am here. There are a few new posts. If I click on old posts, the computer takes me to the profile of the person who wrote the postand even says that they are my friend, but they are not on my friends list. I think they have not "re-joined" DS. It makes me feel sad. As multiples, we must choose when and where we reveal ourselves because others do not understand. I very much would like...
  • Hi, everybody. I am new to this board and I hope my post doesn't offend anyone. I do not have DID, but I have a parent who does. This has been a source of conflict in our relationship because they refuse to seek treatment, and they are both an alcoholic and a drug addict (depending on which alter they are though sometimes it's both). I have always just "dealt with it" which included my...
  • I think I(we) am struggling because collectively we do not express negative emotions (probably for a variety of reason: It is not nice, It might be dangerous, It is scary....). If something is annoying or causes anger, the signal is given to not express it. If the event deserves anger, after thought, aggression can be expressed. There is no way to act assertively, which would usually be a better...
  • i'm switching like crazy. My memory is shot. This whole weekend is gone. I finally got grounded by the loud fireworks. Which are freaking me out. George came out. He is the bad guy inside. He wants to hurt me. I'm so scared. My little 4 yr old Rayleigh has been out too. She drew me a picture I just found. I'm scared guys. I don't know what else to do? I'm thinking bad things.

    So many questions!

    Still trying to wrap my head around everything. I'm alone in this and have no one to talk to or ask questions, so I'm hoping someone will be willing to talk about some of my biggest questions. I apologize if I don't know all the correct terminology, but here goes...Can trying to live with chronic pain cause dissociation, or would it just be a trigger? In pain management, they teach you to...
