  • I really don't think so. . . but ask me on a day when my girls are really acting up. I might change my mind.

  • No, but one or more of the personalities can be evil or mean.

  • I suppose so, but I don't believe they are. I'm sure there are people that believe that, though.

  • Meh, I rarely put anything outside the realm of possibility... But I was in school with a guy who suffered with DID, and no, he was not possessed... I've been fascinated with DID for years, and have a basic working knowledge of what it is and how it works. So, no, I can say without any question that while it's always POSSIBLE that someone who is possessed could be mistaken for someone with DID, DID is not a spiritual issue, but a mental one...

    However, I have come across the idea that persons with DID have more than one soul/spirit. But I don't generally buy in to that either.

  • Yes, it's possible but MPD now falls under the umbrella of Schizophrenia. It is no longer considered a separate disease.

  • Uhhh, no. We've come a loooong way in the way of scientific understanding of the human brain and how things can be wired wrong. AND how it can be treated with meds and therapy.
