If so, wondering what your challenges are, or how you deal/cope ...do you seek counseling/therapy? And would you consider joining a group (not sure if there are any) here @ CM specifically for moms with MPD?
Please answer kindly and sincerely! (And yes, I am "multiple.")

Good question... I have several informative links on my CM page if you or anyone are interested.

BTW... the voices associated with MPD/DID (dissociative identity disorder) are much dif than those associated with schizzophrenia, and MPD is not a "mental illness." There are no medications specifically for MPD, because there is no chemical imbalance or physical cause. The cause is not a medical one, but a result of the need to survive severe, extreme, and ongoing trauma beginning in early childhood. Meds may be helpful for other co-existing conditions, such as depression or PTSD. MPD is 100% treatable... all it takes is a great support system (caring friends, therapist, counselor, church, etc) and a desire to resolve the issues that caused the splitting.
I hope this helps!
