Many people confuse or mix multiple personality disorder with Schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. But they are not nearly the same. Schizophrenia is a condition wherein patients experience hallucinations and delusions while bipolar is when people experience intense mood swings and manic depression.
Most importantly, properly diagnosed Schizophrenia and bipolar patients won’t have multiple identities, however, a patient with DID may suffer from Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and many other disorders at once.
