Multiple Personality: A shameful, nonexistent dx?

Posted by tinydancer on April 8, 2004, at 12:04:15

I feel like I'm jumping out of the airplane without a parachute here, but I see a lot of discussion about hearing voices and dissassociating and yet few people coming forward and discussing the MPD or Dissassociative disorder.
Is this looked upon as a shameful disorder to have? Disbelieved and basically very controversial?
I know a lot of individuals here have a lot of fear about divulging their dx's which I'm comfortable with and understand, but I feel like I'm ashamed of myself and the dx I have, and I don't want to be! I am constantly questioning myself and wondering how this could happen. Wondering how my mind could do this and how I could actually have this dx MPD-which to me is actually outrageous. It seems so unreal that it could even be a dx in the first place, since I spent so many years thinking that everyone heard voices and had people living inside them.
A lot of people are doubtful about the logistics of the dx, not to mention the ungodly innaccuracies depicted in the media about a person who has MPD. I feel like I'm opening a can of worms here, but would anyone else like to share their views about MPD? I would really be interested in hearing opinions and thoughts about the dx itself, as well as current treatment methods, and even questions that maybe need clearing up...So fire away...
