re: Multiple Personality Disorder- Real or Fake?
As far as I can tell, real, but some using it may be fake.

I think the one they made "Three Faces of Eve" was real but the movie version was dramatized. Scrooster may want to weigh in as she was from SC if my memory is not too far gone.

I know the one they made "Sybil" from was quite real. She spent part of her life in CKY and was well known around the area. CKY pre 1980's was a "collector" of personalities as it was very accepting of the odd and eccentric. 1 or 2 degrees of separation exist between Shirley and myself and I can say clearly there were different personalities. This was not the first or last person I had seen with this issue but all exhibited diagnosed or undiagnosed schizophrenia. Not sure if one followed the other but there seemed to be a connection. This is why I added the "may be fake" to my first sentence.

If underlying schizophrenia existed then probably real
If no underlying schizophrenia existed then probably not real

There is still so much we do not know and so many things many of you never heard of or experienced in your personal life (like polio or scarlett fever) affected many other things beside just their effect on the bodies they damaged. If you are old enough you grew up with friends who were "changed" after such an illness.

Yes but as with anything people take advantage.

Which sums it up.

Its a very rare mental disorder and is the result, from what I understand, of some very serious mental issues that contribute to the condition.

Some people cannot function in the world. Maybe they did something because another personality said they should, maybe their cat told them to do something, maybe they are so far gone they don't really know why they did something.

That having been said, you will always have people try to abuse mental illness as a defense for their crimes.

My stepmother has worked in Mental Health for nearly 40 years, she said she has never encountered a single legitimate case.

Where did she work?

We no longer have long term locked facilities like we did before 1980. If she was only in 40 years she would have missed that generation before. Was she a social worker, nurse, attendant, or doctor at a mental health facility or was she in private practice as a psychologist or psychiatrist?

Fake, Fake, Fake, and Fake.

People can have dissociative events when experiencing severe traumas, but this nonsense about having multiple people with different names living inside you is just fiction.

The usual people diagnosed with it in the past are individuals who were seeking a psychological symptom to identify with and assume the sick role. Those individuals (in 2019) are now more likely to report gender identity symptoms.

These types of diagnoses change with the culture and the decade we live in.

Interesting and sense making.

This got me to thinking- would it be kind of fun to be crazy for a day (heck why not a week)? Like crazy crazy- would definitely be an experience.

Where's your sense of adventure?

But yeah, I would imagine it would be a pretty scary place but then again maybe you don't realize you're crazy... who knows.

In the realm of mental health issues, probabilities are nearly limitless. My attempt at levity in an earlier post was ( as I think we all enjoy on this OT board ) an escape.

The discussion of a serious matter with humor can be a calming factor. It was not meant in disrespect.

re: Multiple Personality Disorder- Real or Fake?
I've been around legitimately "crazy" people before. They can't take care of themselves, they hurt themselves and others, they alienate themselves from everything, and they can have no idea they're doing it. That's not even getting in to the emotions they experience while it's going on. That doesn't sound like fun, it sounds like hell.

I don't mean to be a buzzkill, I know you're playing.
