PostSubject: Multiple personality disorder (MPD) or Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)   Sat Jan 10, 2009 11:49 am

What is MPD or DID?

MPD or DID is defined as a condition in which "two or more distinct identities or personality states" alternate in controlling the patient's consciousness and behavior. Note: "Split personality" is not an accurate term for DID and should not be used as a synonym for schizophrenia.

What are the causes of MPD or DID?

  • An innate ability to dissociate easily
  • Repeated episodes of severe physical or sexual abuse in childhood
  • The lack of a supportive or comforting person to counteract abusive relative(s)
  • The influence of other relatives with dissociative symptoms or disorders


What are the symptoms of MPD or DID?

  • Amnesia - Gaps in the patient's memory for long periods of their past, in some cases, their entire childhood.
  • Depersonalization - the patient feels that his or her body is unreal, is changing, or is dissolving.
  • Derealization - the patient perceives the external environment as unreal. Patients may see walls, buildings, or other objects as changing in shape, size, or color.



I got interested in MPD because of a book I am currently reading. It's title is The Minds of Billy Milligan and it is by Daniel Keyes. It's a about a man with 23 personalities. woohooo xD
