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...

    How to learn about my alters

    2
    I am new to all of this. My therapist tried to diagnose me last year but I refused to accept it. A couple months ago she tried again and I am starting to realize she’s right.  I’m at a point where I am trying to figure out who my alters are the purposes they serve. How do I talk to them and learn who they are?

    No amnesia

    Hi! I’m new here. I was wondering if anyone else is aware when an alter is out. I feel like I’m watching them when I switch. I can normally tell which ones are watching me as well. I kept thinking it wasn’t possible for me to have DID since I don’t have amnesia with it. I remember what happens, I’m just not the one in control at the time. I have not been diagnosed as of yet. I’m...

    So, I just joined and thought I'd make a post. I was diagnosed DID in 2003 0or 2004 after checking into a hospital that strictly deals with trauma and abuse.At that point, I had no idea what was wrong with me, but dissociative episodes were becoming prevelant and happening too often.I was in that hospital 4 months, and once diagnosed, I was angry... at first...  As time passed I was able to see...

    Do you see a pattern?

    7
    Does anybody else see the pattern in their lives like this?...When ever I am stressed I switch. I have been mostly integrated, but one of my stronger personalities comes out when I can no longer deal with the stress in my life. She manages everything and with no emotion. She is wise and intuitive and funny. My therapist likes her, because she gives her insight to what is going on in me.I think I...

    Triggers

    1
    Hot and Cold trigger me/us becuase it reminds us of the ritual abuse.Stranger things on Netflix recently triggered me badly because they cut her baby out and electric shock her and it has mind control stuff in it. this was severely triggering and similar to my past.Its hard to deal with triggers and I find switches scary.

    Sorry to be gone so long. And a question.

    4
    Hi everyone!Sorry to disappear like that. I have a stalker and was triggered, personalities flashing back and forth too quickly, so I took some time and regrouped. Question: Do any of you have alters that you do not know their names? I have a 12 yr old that comes out when I get overwhelmed, but I do not know her name and she is not telling anyone.

    My husband has known about my DID since we met because in an attempt to quell the fears of mistrusting parts I told him everything in order to say this iz what you're getting into and this is your opportunity to run. We've been married for 2 years now and together for 3 but recently my switching has gotten worse and one of my alters slept with someone else. We are trying to work it out but he is...
