Not so; wrong on both counts. DID develop greater awareness and integration of parts. For anyone that says they cannot be helped or cured or whatever you want to call it, that person is dead wrong. With DID, a person can be well aware of the parts, and at first, maybe not so.

DDNOS can be just like DID but with fewer parts, maybe two. DDNOS have dissociative episodes.

Everyone has dissociaive episdodes. There is the thing called normal dissociation. For example one is driving the same route they drive every day, and they space out thinking about something, and then all of a sudden the person says to self, Oh I am almost there. Did I stop at that stop sign 2 miles back? Likely the person did and just doesn't remember. Research backs this up.

Sometimes people confuse what is actually going on. Some folks are both Borderline Personality Disorder and DID. Some are just BPD with psychotic episodes and fancy themselves as DID. Some are just DID and get misdiagnosed as BPD. Or with the new fad diagnosis, some BPD get diagnosed as bipolar, etc. etc. etc. Just my PROFESSIONAL opinion.

Best for you and therapist to decide what is going on with you. The tendency to give misinformation on dissociative disorders can be damaging to others especially as I saw her later, someone said that DID is untreatable or something to that effect. That is just NOT SO.
