I am 16 years old, my mother has been diagnosed With DID since early teen years, but just more recently decided to open up about it with me. Having a rather bad childhood with stressful trauma I experience bad anxiety as well as my mother. My mother’s system contains alters that can be, well angery and violent. She experiences sudden rage, change in accent, facial expression, and dissociation. Growing up in my mind around age 13 I told myself my mother has bipolar disorder because to me (not knowing about DID) it made sense. Now knowing about my mom’s diagnosis I want to be there for her, but it’s been a lot worse lately as our family is going through a stressfull time. she has become more angry and just scary with sudden switches it’s hard to know who she is anymore. I know it is not my mother fault but it is so hard to deal with at times and I just don’t know how to support her.
