      WHO was talking with WHOM? It’s obvious that you’ve been pretending to be someone else you are not when you wrote the letter or you are suffering from Dissociative identity Disorder (multiple personality)

      Go see a doctor.

      Dissociative identity disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder) is an effect of severe trauma during early childhood, usually extreme, repetitive physical, sexual, or emotional abuse.

      What Is Dissociative Identity Disorder?

      Most of us have experienced mild dissociation, which is like daydreaming or getting lost in the moment while working on a project. However, dissociative identity disorder is a severe form of dissociation, a mental process, which produces a lack of connection in a person’s thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of identity. Dissociative identity disorder is thought to stem from trauma experienced by the person with the disorder. The dissociative aspect is thought to be a coping mechanism — the person literally dissociates himself from a situation or experience that’s too violent, traumatic, or painful to assimilate with his conscious self.

      Is Dissociative Identity Disorder Real?

      You may wonder if dissociative identity disorder is real. After all, understanding the development of multiple personalities is difficult, even for highly trained experts. But dissociative identity disorder does exist. It is the most severe and chronic manifestation of the dissociative disorders that cause multiple personalities.

      Other types of dissociative disorders defined in the DSM-IV, the main psychiatry manual used to classify mental illnesses, include dissociative amnesia, dissociative fugue, and depersonalization disorder.

      What Are the Symptoms of Dissociative Identity Disorder?

      Dissociative identity disorder is characterized by the presence of two or more distinct or split identities or personality states that continually have power over the person’s behavior. With dissociative identity disorder, there’s also an inability to recall key personal information that is too far-reaching to be explained as mere forgetfulness. With dissociative identity disorder, there are also highly distinct memory variations, which fluctuate with the person’s split personality.

      The “alters” or different identities have their own age, sex, or race. Each has his or her own postures, gestures, and distinct way of talking. Sometimes the alters are imaginary people; sometimes they are animals. As each personality reveals itself and controls the individuals’ behavior and thoughts, it’s called “switching.” Switching can take seconds to minutes to days. When under hypnosis, the person’s different “alters” or identities may be very responsive to the therapist’s requests.

      Along with the dissociation and multiple or split personalities, people with dissociative disorders may experience any of the following symptoms:
      Mood swings
      Suicidal tendencies
      Sleep disorders (insomnia, night terrors, and sleep walking)
      Anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias (flashbacks, reactions to stimuli or “triggers”)
      Alcohol and drug abuse
      Compulsions and rituals
      Psychotic-like symptoms (including auditory and visual hallucinations)
      Eating disorders

      Other symptoms of dissociative identity disorder may include headache, amnesia, time loss, trances, and “out of body experiences.” Some people with dissociative disorders have a tendency toward self-persecution, self-sabotage, and even violence (both self-inflicted and outwardly directed). As an example, someone with dissociative identity disorder may find themselves doing things they wouldn’t normally do such as speeding, reckless driving, or stealing money from their employer or friend, yet they feel they are being compelled to do it. Some describe this feeling as being a passenger in their body rather than the driver. In other words, they truly believe they have no choice

      You are the one with the problems. Diagnosing people from fragmented venting thoughts is a saddistic and controlling behavior associated with people with grandiose self importance issues.

      I’m not the Author, but, when I read this I understood it to mean that the author spoke with their person by the  “after speaking with me” line.  
      So you all have a lot of nerve rushing into your false diagnosis and assumptions. Don’t be calling others crazy when you yourselves are here dissecting every letter hoping its for you.
      You really do have a lot of nerve considering what you all do; now you’re diagnosing strangers you don’t know on an anonymous website, now that’s some real craziness!!

      Funny how some people jump on a word or sentence and come up with such delusional sh!t! Who’s crazy? Really.
      Apply your own advice to your own life that should help you to rid yourself of that all knowing Psychic within you that obviously is tormenting you to talk craziness about people you don’t know. 5 posts in a row from the same person on 1 letter and they say the author needs to get their head checked.
      The audacity of some people is unbelievable.

      for those diagnosing others on this site. It is unethical and not to mention completely ridiculous. How do you even get to DID from this letter? My take on this letter is that the authors person was not sure how the author felt, however, after a conversation was had, the author thought they made it very clear how they felt. They arw the authors weakness.

      there’s a whole lot of weird in the comments here. My goodness… I’m not sure how all of that came from 3 -4 sentences. Not concerned for the author, I’m sure they got a laugh out of it, because that’s really all you can do, isn’t it?

      @@author or should I say Shoshona Shoenbaum from untitled stars of Tara (I loved that show ) thank you for your comments about DID. I thought it particularly kind that you allowed your alters to have a go at commenting too. I did notice they are a little confused, in 1994 the condition MPD was officially replaced by DID. So maybe get them to stick with the current recognised designation of the disorder. I guess webmd didn’t go into so much detail for you all. FYI there are more credible resources out there, for next time you want to offer advice, because right now I give you as much credit as Gimme the poncho goblin, let alone Shoshona Shoenbaum.
      I admit freely and proudly all my posts on here are nonsensical. I don’t come here to make sense to anyone. So to clear it up for those affected: I speak “with” my person not “to” them that’s how much I care and respect them. So after I had spoken “with” them if they had any doubt about how I still felt they would now know. Too funny. :-)))))
      In all seriousness because it is not really something to joke about. For those who want more info on DID, my fav guys, Josh and Chuck from the “stuff you should know” podcast just posted an awesome podcast episode on the subject on April 16 th. That is all.
