New To This!!
I am in a new relationship (just 5 months) and within the first two months I had already fallen in love with this man. At around the 2-1/2 month mark of our relationship, his ex informed me that he had DID (thinking it would scare me off), which it didn't. Yes, I was confused and scared but as soon as he started explaining everything to me and I started researching DID, I embraced him even more. I don't think he has ever had someone in his life that just excepts him for who is and loves him unconditionally like I do. Every single one of his alters likes me and I have learned to interact with them as individuals. Here is my question to anyone that may have or is experiencing this. My relationship started with one of the alters because he was interested in me. The core personality knows who I am but we have never interacted and knows he loves me, but is confused by it at the same time. His alter I'm involved in says it's bcos he lets the core see and feel what he feels for me. I try to explain this to my friends but sometimes they look at me like I'm crazy for continuing this relationship. My answer to them is this. If I fell in love and found out he had cancer, I wouldnt leave him so why would I turn my back on him bcos of a disorder he has that was ultimately caused by abuse he didn't ask for. I'm sorry this is so long, it just felt good talking about it and knowing there are others out there who understand what I'm talking about. Thanks for listening.
