Multiple Personality Disorder

dessagirl disorder 2005-004: MULTIPLE PERSNALITY DISORDER
halur! may kilala ba kayong weirdo? ito siguro ang pinaka weird na tao kasi iba-iba sha. parang monstur! read along my krung-krung research here:

Multiple personality disorder (MPD) is a psychiatric disorder characterized by having at least one "alter" personality that controls behavior. The "alters" are said to occur spontaneously and involuntarily, and function more or less independently of each other. The unity of consciousness, by which we identify our selves, is said to be absent in MPD. Another symptom of MPD is significant amnesia which can't be explained by ordinary forgetfulness. In 1994, the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-IV replaced the designation of MPD with DID: dissociative identity disorder. The label may have changed, but the list of symptoms remained essentially the same.


Memory and other aspects of consciousness are said to be divided up among "alters" in the MPD. The number of "alters" identified by various therapists ranges from several to tens to hundreds. There are even some reports of several thousand identities dwelling in one person. There does not seem to be any consensus among therapists as to what an "alter" is. Yet, there is general agreement that the cause of MPD is repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse. The evidence for this claim
has been challenged, however, and there are very few reported cases of MPD afflicting children. (lifted from: http://skepdic.com/mpd.html)

so there... weird no? these people usually wake up in a different place and can't remember what happened. sila yata yung mukang napopossess.. there are times when an adult becomes a kid, a girl becomes a guy, a shy person becomes a killer.. stuff like that. so there. sa office yata namin maraming ganito eh. harharharhar! isa na ako dun!!! hala!!! dessa girl by day and _____by night! back in college, i leanred that there was this person who had hundreds of alters (yun yung iba-ibang personalities sa loob niya) that he doesn't know hus dominant anymore. so do you know anyone with possible MPD?

this is my sister and i doing our version of having a different alter:

ate dessa, i've got this book by mary higgins clark about a woman with MPD. tapos yung fingerprints nya nakita sa isang crime scene. unknowingly,yung alter nya nagpunta dun sa crime scene na yun at in defense, ginalaw nya yung scene kasi akala nya pagbibintangan yung babae. anyway, chika lang. hehe...
