Conculision

DID is a very serious disorder. It can be as small as from 2 personalities to many more. Many people believe it so be like watching a movie of themselves. Most people are unable to control when this happens. There are many different types of personalities ranging from happy to pissed. It is common for the person affected to create completely different people. By this I mean your angry side could be named Molly when your name is Anna. They are often unaware of what one personality does. So Molly could hit and hate you where as Anna has no memory of this. Having such an abnormality at a young age could cause some very hard times for a child especially when in school for they won't understand the difficulties of this disorder.
