OK, for those of you who have been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know a few things about it and me:
1. I have Multiple Personality Disorder
2. I have been saying I would post up pictures and details about this interesting condition for a while now
3. I haven’t done that yet.
Well, I moved in May, and since the move I have not been able to find the cord to my scanner that I need to upload pictures. So I’m going to have to either be creative and come up with something different for that, or really comb the boxes (or stores) for what I need. In the meantime, I’m creating a new page called “The Girls”, where I will be keeping information about this conglomeration of quacks known as me. In “The Girls” I will be posting said pictures and information about the various different personalities I deal with and walk among.
*disclosure* There are some psychiatrists who do not believe in Multiple Personality Disorder as a diagnosis. I’m not sure how many this totals up to, but there it is. It IS a weird situation; because what you have on the outside is someone you see at work everyday (or church, or home) who looks like the person you know. But on their end, they might not be the same person you dealt with yesterday. Or even an hour ago.
I myself have gone upstairs to use the bathroom, come back downstairs and been completely dumbfounded by a conversation my sister is having with me. “I don’t have any farking idea what you are talking about”, is my response. But in her reality, we just had a forty-five minute talk about something, and a short pee in the middle shouldn’t normally cause someone to forget the previous discussion of almost an hour. Unless that body that came down the stairs is now holding a different personality.
See? It’s weird. It’s like a SciFi movie. It’s like the body snatchers have taken the person away and replaced it with this OTHER thing.
And that’s true! That’s kind of what happens. For whatever reason, the person that has this disorder will at times become frightened, feel threatened, or have a memory that causes the current personality to “make way” for a new or existing personality to step forward and be in control. It’s very similar to “Chinese Fire-Drill” driving. You are all still in the car together, but at some point you stop the car and change places.
More on this in a later post; this much to say, it’s fine if it is weird, crazy or bizarre sounding to you. It is to me too, and I live with it. And for those doctors that don’t believe in the condition; well, they have that show “Wife Swap”…you could always try a swap and live with someone who “claims” to have the disorder and see what it’s like for a while.
OK, so keep you posted on the coming additions, and the page will be live just EMPTY for now! 😦
except for this 😀
