What is Dissociative Identity Disorder?

what is multiple personality disorder

Someone with a dissociative disorder escapes reality in ways that are involuntary and unhealthy.

The person with a dissociative disorder experiences a disconnection and lack of continuity between thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions and identity.

The symptoms of dissociative disorders — ranging from amnesia to alternate identities — depend in part on the type you have. Symptoms usually develop as a reaction to trauma and help keep difficult memories at bay. Times of stress can temporarily worsen symptoms, making them more obvious. Dissociative disorders cause problems with functioning in everyday life.

Treatment for dissociative disorders may include talk therapy (psychotherapy) and medication. Although treating dissociative disorders can be difficult, many people learn new ways of coping and lead healthy, productive lives.

    I really enjoyed the fear of intimacy video and it was free to know I am not alone with it. Will you be doing anymore videos regarding this topic?

    Also curious about memory issues and mental issues. My Dr tells me that the meds don’t cause memory problems and I do t feel it is accurate.

    I have been watching your videos for the last few years. I can’t recall seeing a video about bpd/bp or anything else and coping with school and or work. If there is one can you let me know.

    Thanks
