I am also DID. It is like a shameful dx. I never have felt that what I have was so wonderful. It has been an hinderance. What is very easy for others is very difficult for me. I feel more like a freak show in hidding. I don't allow people to get to near me. I am just now really opening up to exposing some of myself(s) to only 3 people.

I find that when someone hears that someone is DID they want to see proof. That is abusive in my view. They are wanting to see rapid switching. I don't share my dx with many, because I know they will look for it. For now, they can just view me as extremely unpredictable and moody. I think DID people share some similiarities, but each person is different and so is their level of functioning.

For the most part, I just tell people I have complex PTSD. That is a true statement that people readily accept.
