Learning more about multiple personality disorder, now referred to as dissociative identity disorder, is the first step in assisting a friend or partner with this condition. It can be frustrating, isolating, and devastating to live with a dissociative identity disorder. Frequently, media depictions of the condition are stigmatizing, making individuals with the disorder appear unpredictable or dangerous. This stigma, coupled with the fact that only two percent of the population suffers from dissociative identity disorder, might make many individuals with the condition unwilling to seek professional care or to confide in their loved ones.
When you first find that a friend has multiple personality disorder, you may feel afraid or wonder if they are the individual you thought they were. However, these concerns and anxieties are unfounded. Trauma is the core cause of dissociative identity disorder as a mental health problem. People with the condition are not inherently dangerous and deserve and are capable of love, kindness, and compassion just as much as anyone else.
Learning further about how to act towards someone with multiple personality disorder will help you in improving your relationship with them by comprehending what your friend or loved one is experiencing and educating you on how to provide support. By informing yourself, you can prevent adding to the trauma your buddy is likely already enduring and enhance the possibility that they will seek professional therapy and counseling.
