Dissociative Identity Disorder

#9 Dissociative Identity Disorder

Despite having several depictions in pop culture, it is best not to jump to conclusions about this disorder based on movies.

Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is when the person has multiple identities. That is why it was earlier known as Multiple Personality Disorder.

The afflicted person is constantly experiencing a switch in their personality. What’s worse, there is no telling when the identity will switch.

So, the identity can remain for a period anywhere between hours and years!

Sometimes the identities may not be aware of each other so it is not easy for a person to realize they have DID.

With so many dangerous risks, it often becomes necessary for these sufferers to be institutionalized.
