D.i.d? Mild d.i.d? Trauma reaction? Cptsd? Confused 🙁 : Dissociative Identity Disorder Forum
star dust wrote:I have different personalities that I’m now aware of. They are very very different. They have extremely different ideas about themselves. They have and see the world and their experiences from incredibly different perspectives. They have completely different emotions in regards to ‘our’ past. They have completely different ideas of what happened.
Some of ‘us’ have different memories that the others can’t access.
There’s no such thing as “mild DID,” but there is OSDD 1b which is having very differentiated identities without much amnesia, and OSDD 1a which has less elaborated identities. But it’s not important in terms of treatment to make those distinctions. The treatment is the same, and they are all major dissociative disorders that occur from early childhood trauma. People often aren’t aware that they have different parts until they are adults–that’s not unusual at all.
DID is often misdiagnosed as BPD, since it can look the same from the outside, but BPD doesn’t have separate identities. I’ve seen people say that you can have both, but I think of them as being on the same spectrum. And if someone had early childhood trauma and has different identities, then DID is more descriptive then just saying cPTSD. Just my opinion, for what it’s worth.
You can find a lot of useful information on this forum, but it’s important to find a good T who is experienced in treating this sort of thing and can help you figure out what’s going on.
