The main cause of DID is believed to be severe and prolonged trauma experienced during childhood, including emotional, physical or sexual abuse.
Keeping this in consideration, does a person with multiple personality disorder know they have it?
In practice, the vast majority of people with dissociative identity disorder do not obviously present as if they have 'multiple personalities'. But many symptoms may appear to be non-trauma-related, such as depression, substance abuse, eating disorders and anxiety.
Additionally, can dissociative identity disorder go away?
Can dissociative disorders go away without treatment? They can, but they usually do not. Typically those with dissociative identity disorder experience symptoms for six years or more before being correctly diagnosed and treated.
Can alters talk to each other?
✘ Myth: Communication with alters happens by seeing them outside of you and talking with them just like regular people -- a hallucination. But, in DID, these voices and conversations are not actual auditory hallucinations.
What kind of trauma causes did?
The trauma often involves severe emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse. It might also be linked to accidents, natural disasters, and war. Episodes of DID can be triggered by a variety of real and symbolic traumas, including mild events such as being involved in a minor traffic accident, adult illness, or stress.
