    Dissociative Identity Disorder/DID/formally

    known as MPD or multiple personality disorder. A lot of people have no idea what it means so I decided to write something about it and get some things out of the way. First of all I will answer the questions people ask me most:-So, you are schizophrenic?*No! Absolutely not, that...

    My Experiences With Did...

    I don't really know what to say. I have wanted to connect with other people like me for a very long time. I was really nervous about opening up about living with this 'condition'. My alters saved my life while I was a child and now they can be a challenge. Other people don't...

    Flashbacks...

    You've gotta love them...they just creep up on you when you least expect it and freak you right out. It is as though they seem to know you're at a moment of peace and then, BAMM--- you remember a flash of your past that is very unpleasant. I have a hard time dealing with them...

    Hello. I suspect I have multiple personality

    disorder but I'm not really sure and I need another opinion but I'm scared to ask anyone I know (no offense, I'm sorry). I have periods of time where I don't have memories. I walk into a room and forget why I did. And sometimes I feel deja vu, like from once a few weeks to 13...

    terms with my alters. There's three of us. I am Santi, and the other two are Meza and Sopa. We're all very confused of how we came to be like this. They are named after my two most common usernames, which I always find interesting because they innately chose those names before...

    It Wasn'T Me

    I have undiagnosed MPD. I know of 3 other personalities and what I like to call the "occasional tourist". All of them have names, distinct looks, and personalities that make them stick out. My pictures even look like different people. People that know me well know the names of...

    There are seven of us: Ria,

    Rose, Ally, Delilah, Alex, Lexi, and Pearl. We are able to change who is the main person, and have done so in the past. Each of us are our own people: we all have different mannerisms, tastes, goals, and past. When we blackout, we share our memories to the others to avoid...

    the only two friends I have aren't talking to me. I hold them so dearly and I feel like they're dead... I don't know why this happens. I'm close to just breaking down and crying, why was I made fragile and attached to anything that notices me?

    So my alters and I came up with this idea,

    which is when an alter appears during school hours they have to right down their marking on my left arm (why my left arm? I don't know). And by their marking I mean: Σ Δ Θ Κ Ζ Ε Ω Γ Η Ι So far today, I switch to Sigma, Epsilon, Delta, and Kappa.
