Are there any moms here with MPD? (multiple personality disorder)

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.")


Thanks!

  • There are plenty of sites with info on symptoms, but generally, you may become aware that you've done/said things you do not remember (ppl may tell you things you've done/said that you do not remember), you may become aware that you have gaps of "missing time" or years of your past/childhood you do not remember, maybe you hear "voices" inside your head (thinkings) that have differering opinions ....find things you do not remember purchasing, etc.

  • There is also a site with a test that can help you/someone assess their symptoms ...it is called the "dissociative experiences scale."

    Here is the site URL:

  • 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!
