Do moms with multiple personalities or bipolar have more than one CM page? Or does your other personality hate CM?

I'm serious..not trying to make fun of these disorters. I even studied psych so I'm really curious. That is so interesting to me.

  • Like others said BPD's "ups" and "downs" are all within the same personality so one person would have the same account. As for multiple personalities, that's very possible. In many cases, someone with multiple personalities does not even realise that they have them because the other personalities opperate without consciousness from the primary person. I suppose if a mom had additional personalities, they could have CM accounts that she wouldn't even know about :-)

    We reviewed a case study when I was in school where a mother brought her daughter in to a therapists office claiming the daughter had multiple personalities because she "didn't even know her own daughter half the time." It turned out the mom had multiple personalities and would only bring her daughter to therapy when she was acting as "Kate" but never herself as "Katherine." Interesting!

  • People with bipolar disorder only have one "personality" and would have no reason to have more than one page.

  • what would even make you think the "other" personality (s) would have an interest in CM? it/they might like myspace or facebook. bluefrogmama is right about bipolar, too. so it's just the multiple personality folks you have to concentrate on. I wonder if all of someone's personalities were on here if they would all respond or have the dominant personality reply and speak for them all?

  • I'm bipolar and there is only one me. As for a dissociative friend I have she had 1 myspace alone, and all personalities except 1 or 2 would blog on it.

  • I'm bi-polar. And I have just one. A bi-polar person has sever mood swings but NOT 2 personallities. Multi-personalitiy moms could easily have more than one CM account but most likely wouldn't know it. Most multi-personality people have no knowledge of what the other personalities are doing. It's like one personality hibernates and another takes over...
