Newly Diagnosed With Dissociative Identity Disorder

My name is kashley, i am 22 and live in the uk.

3 years ago, when i was away at college, i met "frank" who was my partner at the time.

I suffered 3 long weeks of physicall, emotional, sexual, and mental abuse. I got so depressed, i couldn't handle it anymore, so i began to dissociate, and the alters began to develop.

It was only in february this year when i went back to see my psychiatric nurse, that i was diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder, paranoid personality disorder, bipolar, anxiety, and PTSD.

Hi Kashley,<br />
So sorry to hear you went through such a horrible experience.<br />
It is very important that you find a threapist who has experience with DID in order to get the help you need. There is also help here at ep and I myself have had 13 yrs of experience in dealing with this condition. It is important to eventually when you ready get to know how many alters you have and also their names and ages. Useing a journal is helpfull where everyone can write and it helps to fill in the gaps in your life too. Please feel free to friend me I am willing to answer any question u may have to the best of my knowledge. Have a good day.

I know that this can be a very difficult thing to understand and cope with, and so I offer what help I can give with my scant two years of dealing with my own alters...
