Important things to know about Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)
- It is not schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or borderline personality disorder.
- It is the result of severe childhood trauma.
- The identities of someone with DID are called different things. Alters, parts and others to name a few.
- There can be as few as 2 alters or into the hundreds with the average number being in the teens.
- Alters are not hallucinations or characters and ignoring them or telling the person to “snap out of it” will not make them go away.
- Although for some with DID the goal of treatment is to integrate alters into one whole identity many with DID feel this is not the right path for them and rather work on cooperation between alters to live as a team. Both of these are acceptable forms of recovery and it is up to the person with DID what path they want to take.
- DID is found in 1-3% of the population (possibly even more) making it more common than schizophrenia and not as extremely rare as many people believe.
- People with DID (or any mental illness) are statistically no more likely to commit any type of crime, violent or not. They are however more likely to be the victim of a crime.
- The “evil alter” trope seen in fiction is not accurate and alters that hold trauma or anger are much more likely to hurt themselves than anyone else.
- Most people with DID don’t have to live their lives in inpatient facilities and can still live good lives despite experiencing different types of struggles than people without DID.
I love seeing those “dont make fun of people for showing symptoms of x disorder”
But you never see one about psychosis. Because y'all think it’s fun to make fun of the person talking to the space next to them on the train. Or think it’s so entertaining to make fun of the person who’s clearly showing a delusion. Why’s it okay to make fun of the person who doesn’t really show emotion? If you’re going to stand up for some disorders but make fun of others then you’re not a good disability ally.
i’m going to continue to be an uwu feral baby XD that says fjdijfjd and fieokfkenendj and x3 and :333 and i’m going to obsess over naruto and like scenecore and kidcore and wear clothes that don’t match and put my hair in pigtails and wear hair clips and wear a shirt with kakashi hatake on it because life is SHORT and i just realized that other people’s opinions of me DON’T MATTER!!!! i don’t have many years on this planet and even if i don’t make some great impact or whatever i’ll know that i had a satisfying life living it how i want…. i’ll die happy knowing i made 26 homestuck playlists and i drew ugly anime fanart and i loved unapologetically and once made rice with lemon juice instead of chicken stock and STILL laughed it off!!! if you spend your life trying to impress people well then u r a loser at your very core…. get real, silly goose!!! -__-

Here is a master post from this blog!
Please reblog to spread it!

reading the tags and replies on this post really just hammers in the point that we need to be kinder to people with acne and really be supportive of them, just as much as we’re supportive of people who are fat. acne + skin disorder positivity is just as important as fat positivity and other types of body positivity. i’ve suffered from severe cystic acne for probably 7 years now, and i’m only 16.. i have acne and acne scars all over my body, and seeing any positivity for people with acne at all would’ve turned my world upside down. please… be kinder, be supportive. really, just reblogging a positivity post can make someones day.
with as much positivity for every other thing i see on this site, it’s amazing how i never see anything for people with acne.
so, here’s to the people with acne. the people with regular acne and cystic acne. the people with acne on their back and acne on their chest/breasts. to all those with acne on their arms and shoulders and legs and everywhere else nobody wants to acknowledge. i know it’s difficult to live with, and it can make you feel dirty and gross and ugly, but no matter what, you will always be beautiful. not despite your acne, but with your acne. nobody notices your acne as much as you do, trust me. you’ve got this.
this post is specifically for people with acne, so please don’t derail.
