Never The Same - March 31st 2011, 10:27 PM

I don't know what to think of this but...
I've never had friends and never been good with people but when I'm with a different group of people I'm a totally different person than I am with another group. I feel like I'm more than one person stuck in one body. Its as if I'm an actress but my life is that act and I play multiple roles.
And that is one separate issue from the things that can bother me. Between words and how they are written to people just pissing me off by there presence. It has gone on for quite a while now but I never seem to realize it until I look back on my day or week.

hmmmm...have you been through any serious trauma..especially during early childhood? multiple personality disorder also known as dissociative identity disorder a VAST majority of the time only comes when a person has suffered tremendous abuse, neglect, or sexual assualt as early as 4-5 and as late as 7. How many roles do you think you play and how different are those roles? Some people may have personalities that are different in their temperance (extroversion/introversion) confidence, and strength. They can be different in their ages, accents, backgrounds, and names. DID/MPD is very very uncommon but if you have it you are typically aware on some level that you have different roles in you and not all the personalities you display always get along with eachother.
You could have dissociate disorder or depersonalization disorder which is where you feel like life is a dream and dreams are occasionally real....you often see your motions and actions as if you are watching them from a third person perspective and observe yourself from afar walking around town..it's like watching a movie where you are the star but you are outside watching yourself walk around...sometimes even your voice can sound like it is coming from another place or like it's not your own voice even though it is...that is typicaly triggered from severe anxiety or depression and some type of trauma can cause this..the trauma doesn't have to start at any point and this disorder comes at any time..idk if those helped but i hope so... pm me and keep us posted on what's up...

DID is incredibly uncommon and many doctors won't diagnose you with that because they don't think it's an actual disorder but is a sign there may be a different disorder. Myself, I agree DID is not a mental disorder but is a set of symptoms due to other disorders. I say this in part because of the history of DID and the fact research on it hasn't shown much of anything, usually it shows it could be a different disorder for people, such as depersonalization or derealization. For example, it could be issues with trust, fear that you'll confide in others but they'll just leave you, etc... . With new people, many of those issues aren't relevant as much. It's not an issue with social skills because clearly you say you do have social skills nor is it a fear of being judged by others, which are some common reasons. For example, if it is an issue with fear of being abandoned, such a disorder could be separation anxiety disorder.

I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.
