Dec 17, 2011 · dissociative identity disorder (DID): anyone with this diagnosis? in Mental Health

Dissociative Identity Disorder. Usually caused by trauma/abuse; means person has suffered things that a person isn’t built to endure and so the person dissociates to stay alive. Dissociation can mean spacing out, forgetting, and even coming up with new personalities so that there is part of you that is not affected by the abuse. It’s a controversial diagnosis, some think it can’t really happen. It includes the old category of Multiple Personality Disorder. That’s the short version. If you have other questions, I’ll answer to the best of my ability.

We adopted a couple of kids with RAD. And yes, it hurt terribly some of the time. But one of ours came around at age 25 and is now seeking professional help for his issues. I can now say that I admire him. Sorry you are suffering.

Nancy, being DID is hard. But I’ve learned (since my diagnosis) that although treatment is hard to endure, DID is one of the few mental illnesses that can be cured. I pray you are getting the treatment you need.

I have DID and some parts are suicidal. I’m not sure how the parts could make your blood sugar so low, but it would be entirely possible for one to make you not eat or eat the wrong thing.
