DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder)

Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)

Going back to what has been in my life. There have always been 3 different personalities or 3 characters that I’m  aware have helped me overcome some of the life challenges, as well as being the cause of my downfall of some of my relationships and at some point priceless friendships to end. I have never thought that being a problem or thought it was a challenge or anything like that. After all, we are told to behave different according to where we are. We cannot have the same behavior at home as we do at school, sometimes even our believes need to stay at home also… Or so is what I’ve experienced, but what exactly am I talking about?

Called Multiple Personality Disorder until 1994, Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is a severe condition in which at least two distinct identities, or personality states, are present in—and alternately take control of—an individual (OMG, I knew people get possessed. This is proof the Illuminati exist… lol). The person also experiences memory loss that is too extensive to be explained by ordinary forgetfulness.

I don’t think is so much as memory loss, but rather memories misplacement, after all those memories are still somewhere stored there, just you will find them with whatever character is the one to have experienced them.

Explaining how the mind works is never easy, but as one can best explain what is happening. When I sat down daily to write down or record what is happening with me emotionally, is when I got to the conclusion or realization that I didn’t have a tendency to change my pastime and what activity I loved the most, but instead I was dealing with personas showing their own self-image, behaviors,  and even name.

Although, I do not have everything figured out, and maybe I never get to have it all down, I think is important to finally recognized couple things in my life. First of all since the transition or transformation from one identity to another are often triggered by psychosocial stress, there might be ways to minimize how often it happens if  good strategies to deal with stress are implemented. And second, now I know I have never been talking alone all this time… lol, more like my alters have been having conversations with themselves. Lastly, is true sometimes you might get more than you bargained for, in this instance I like to think is more of you get X amount for the price of 1. LOL
