Hi all,

Just finished watching a very good documentary on someone's personal experience of DID on youtube. The last ten minutes is especially interesting, talking about integration.

Here is the link:

I've seen that one before. It's really fascinating. Have you seen the one where they did an EEG on her to see if there would be a difference between alters? It seemed to point toward their being one.

We watched that doco but also another doco called "The women with 7 personalities" it wasn't as modern but it was very authentic and not dramatised, based in Britain.
we fell in love with her child person "Adam" he was so cute and when he fell off on the monkey bars all our kids went ohhhhhh poor Adam :(
It was interesting in "The women with 15 personalities" how DR. Colin Ross who is a specialist in D.I.D conducted his therapy session it seemed quiet direct and our people would have not been as comfortable in being called out to switch like that .
It seemed a little OTT with the dramatizational music and mirror themes but I know everyone is different and it is still good to see how other people experience D.I.D
We were laughing to think if we had a camera on us for 24/7 during a week and made a youtube doco how hilarious it would be I am sure many can relate :lol:

YEah I've watched the woman with 7 personalities too, a couple of times.

The linked one is quite dramatic with the music and glass breaking I agree AND I also could not to the "appearance on demand" thing she can do with her alters.

All in all though it was good, especially the discussion on integration.

It was definitely a little over dramatic, sure, but we liked the talk about integration. Most documentaries seem to just gloss over that part.

The 7 personalities one is good, two.

Like most documentaries I dislike the one posted first, and have not watched the other. They want to find something dramatic to report, something that rivals the movie Sybil. It's like they are reaching.

All my 40 plus alters come on demand, which surprised me when I first tried to call them since I had always just let them come out when they wanted. Now if I even think about them ... bang! They are there!

The woman seemed genuine, but the interviewers did not, they seemed to be looking for something to dramatize the story and get a rise out of the audience. What more does one need than to be an abused child who had to resort to fantasy to survive their relationship with their tormentors and attempt to form an attachment?

I'm reading Kim Noble's book at the moment. Very interesting. My only quipp is that the doctors have labelled her with the "gold standard of DID" as if it was some sort of competition and anyone who doesn't have TOTAL amnesia does not win? That's the way parts of me took it, but it doesn't necessarily mean they meant it that way I know.

Tylas, I think the psychiatrist or whatever he was in the documentary was very cold and clinical. I can see why you think they are trying to dramatise the story, I guess programmes aired on TV will always have that element. Still, from someone who has never met (Facetoface) anyone with DID so has never seen someone in the flesh be troubled by the things I'm troubled with, it was somewhat comforting to see.
