Where'd you get your degree in psychology, my dudeHonestly the whole concept of DID is just so fucking stupid. It’s not real. I’m usually pretty accepting of mental illnesses but this one is 100% bullshit.
I will accept any other mental illness. Depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, what the fuck ever, those all make some kind of sense, but DID is 100% bullshit. Mood swings make sense, so do hallucinations, especially since drugs can make those things occur too. Which shows it can be influenced by what chemicals are going off in your noggin.
But how the fuck do you suddenly “become a 7 year old girl with a totally different outlook on life and different likes and dislikes”. It doesn’t happen, or if it does it’s some kind of psychosis thing? I guess? Like you’re deluded that you are a 7 year old? Or maybe you pretend to be a 7 year old to cope with trauma. But there’s not actually an entire other being stored up inside someone’s head??? They’re still the same person. So when these people try to get mad about how you have to respect all the “people” in their “system” it just makes me roll my eyes. It’s them playing pretend behind a computer screen. These are not separate people, this is a game for attention and I will never accept this disorder or take it seriously.
The whole thing has no fucking evidence that’s substantial. In fact, I heard somewhere that it only occurs in western nations, which screams fake to me. The fact it’s occurances/frequency at which people are diagnosed with it spikes when movies with it come out is very suspect too.
It’s a load of bullshit and none of it is real.
