Dissociative Identity Disorder: Partnering up with The Crimson Union

Have you ever daydreamed? Or perhaps your mind wandered off during a conversation? You have? Congratulations, you have experienced a dissociative episode. Dissociation is common but for those with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), the experience is amplified ten-fold.


 

 

 

Today, I decided to get back to basics. I’ve realized that I did not explain what Dissociative Identity Disorder is. So I thought it would be a good idea to offer you an explanation. I am by no means a professional and if you do suspect you have this condition, please seek help from a mental health professional.

Have you ever daydreamed? Or perhaps your mind wandered off during a conversation? You have? Congratulations, you have experienced a dissociative episode. Dissociation is common but for those with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), the experience is amplified ten-fold.

Dissociative disorders are disorders in which conscious awareness becomes separated (dissociated) from previous memories, thoughts and feelings. This could result in a sudden loss of memory or even change in identity.

DID is diagnosed when a person exhibits more than one distinct and alternating personality resulting in amnesia that is not explained by the physiological effects of a substance (e.g. alcohol intoxication) or other medical condition (e.g. head trauma). The symptoms must cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

I hope I did a decent job in giving you a slight glimpse into what DID is about.

Cheers!
