    sometimes I'm really glad my protector (one of

    I been feeling really weird lately.

    .. I think I might have MPD because I switch moods and sometimes when I wake up I can't decide between good clothes or bad clothes it's really weird I just need help from anyone if they think I might have MPD.

    I hate it when I can feel the suppression of

    certain parts of me. I can feel them just below the surface; there is a fullness in my brain, pressure behind my eyes, tightness in my lungs, and this feeling just under my skin as though I'm a balloon about to explode. I want to grab myself and shake myself violently until...

    Yes, I am who I am partly

    because of them, I hate that they cause drama for me sometimes, I hate that I can never get any peace, always hearing them complain in my head, especially certain ones. But there is nothing I can do...I've learned how to cope with it, and my husband has become close with a few...

    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...

    I was raped by my brother of 8-9 years my age;

    who was beaten and raped by my half brother of 10-11 years my age who was raped by his mother and beaten by our father. Fun family dynamics out of the way now, I learned at an early age to split my conscious and sub-conscious mind. And to create many personalities in my sub...

    How can I keep from coming out

    when I shouldn't? Is it possible that just being around a certain person can trigger my switching? It's an in law and I don't want to ruin things. Being around her I always slip out and idk why. I'm struggling so bad today :(

    Multiple Personalities Or Great Imagination?

    I'm in my 30's and the idea of having multiple personality disorder is not something new to me.  I've always believed there was something just a little different about me as I've grown up, other than having a great imagination.  I've read up on the topic, discussed it...

    I realized something today,

    I front a lot less than my alters. Maybe I am an alter myself. I always guessed that I am the real me but than I wonder who I am? Am I me? Was I a lie? Just feeling a bit lost

    I'm always scared that one day I won't be able

    to hold back an alter from fronting, and then possibly found out that the alter hurt someone I love. I've heard it happen and I'm petrified of it happening to me

    Sadira

    I  forgot about her. I don't have alters that come out. But they're still there. They seem to feed off my attention? Sadira breaks things down to the sum of their parts, viciously. I can't think of an example but it's very depressing. She is pure depression and cynicism...

    Does anyone have any experience with fictional

    introjects? We've recently felt someone new and for a while were unsure who they were. They finally let us know and well, they're currently presenting and identifying as a character from a television show. I've never had an alter like this before. :x

    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...

    I am one of many alters,

    Usually one of the forgotten ones. I am neglected by what's supposed to be my family. The don't care and they never will. I try to front and I usually succeed, but once they notice it's me, they push me away. I am a person, not just an alter. I have feelings too and it hurts to...

    My alter ego is called Erik.

    As soon as he takes over, I stop being the 22 year old girl I am and turn into a 16 year old boy. I have no control over him. He is a troublemaker, gets into fights with everyone and is very rude- and my friends and family tell me that Erik dislikes me a lot. He thinks he should...
