Once the characters have been created, do they remain within you? Do they come out again later and have the same set of consistent feelings and behaviours that they had before? That then when that character goes away again, you can't really remember how it felt to be that character?ALOQ wrote:they always end up focusing on a specific set of personality problems, and when those problems suddenly disappear (because I've become a different character)

This will help you if you decide to go back to a professional at some stage because you will have more idea about how to talk about the problem so that they are able to understand enough to be able to help you.

I think in DID it can seem a bit not-clearly defined once you are no longer "in" the different personality, but instead viewing it from your normal state. I reckon you could come to the DID forum and ask about this if you want to, I think there will be different opinions from everyone on how clearly defined everyone perceives their personalities once those personalities are not "out". Even if DID isn't the forum where you ultimately belong, at least you will have some people to talk to who might be able to relate to you a little better than here.ALOQ wrote:I used to think it might be DID, Bipolar or Borderline. None of them seem to fit, though. Although DID is about different personalities, I was always under the impression that it concerned multiple clear-defined ones (I might be wrong here).
