Wow. Just a quick comment about hypnosis - which I would like to keep open as an option. Since you are so adamant about being forced to do anything, it seems you would be a perfect hypnosis candidate, since you can't be forced to do anything in hypnosis you wouldn't normally allow yourself to do, anyway.
The diagnosis is still in the works. I don't have any of the "typical" DID symptoms like amnesia. I like your comment about the psychiatric camps on the issue, they do seem rather split themselves (!) about it.
So what about 1978-1980 (MPD dx)? And to what degree do you dissociate? Is it just the extent of feeling like you're floating out of your body when you're driving, or do you dissociate into "parts"? Do you always know where you are and what you're doing, do you always feel in control or like you're there but you are acting different than normally? (No, I'm not trying to diagnosis you into DID, just trying to find out where different people fall on the dissociation continuum, as I've heard it called.)

P.S. This isn't a closed discussion - anyone else care to respond to my original question (or anything else said along the way)?
