DID Series Post 1: What is D.I.D.?

D.I.D. Is the acronym for Dissociative Identity Disorder, formerly known as MPD, or Multiple personality disorder.

NAMI- National Association on Mental Illness- has a great two page brief on this particular illness. Please see the following link- https://www.nami.org/NAMI/media/NAMI-Media/Images/FactSheets/Dissociative-Disorders-FS.pdf

Dissociative identity disorder is a disorder marked by amnesia, 2 or more district personalities, loss of time, out of body experiences, and detachment. Also a lack of self-identity is a characteristic. With all that going on I feel like there are enough battles for these folx to face. We do not need them to face a system stacked against them.

I will be doing a series on this disorder as advocation, psycho education, and just trying to do my part to fight the stigma! Next up will be a journal review.
