3-Year-Old Has Identity Confusion

My 3 year old daughter is called two different names depending on who in the family is talking to her. Some people call her by her real name and some by her self appointed nickname. She also refers to herself by both at different times. Recently she asked for a snack, but the way she stated it was ‘(nickname) gets one type of treat and (her real name) gets another type of treat. Basically...

Is My Girlfriend Disassociating?

I have been with my partner for over 6 years. In times of high stress, she will “go to her box” as she calls it, and another personality will take her place in the world for a while. She says she “goes to her box” to get away from the stress and that there is a faceless young girl in the box with her each time. This is NOT the person who takes over...

Extreme Emotional Detachment

I’ve been diagnosed with ED, BPD (borderline pers), & OCD among others that I’ve requested not be revealed to me. I dissociate often, have years of my childhood that I cannot remember, self-harm (since a toddler by using finger nails & teeth), cannot identify or connect with my own emotions let alone...

Is Creating a World in Your Head Really a Problem?

I guess as long as I can remember I have created worlds with characters that seem to have cameras following them everywhere in my head. but it would always seem as if the characters were real. they had personalities, pet peeves and even conversations with me. but their is always a camera watching. their is always a audience. the audience doesn’t interact, they just watch. I tend to get involved with this world that...

I have no recollection of why I left my house, I didnt have my cell phone, purse anything. The key I had to my vehicle was a spare key, not the usual one that I use in a...

Pain of Childhood Sexual Abuse

I am in so much pain. I look at my life and noticed that I’ve lost. I have 27 distinct personalities. Mom and Dad decided to have people rape me over and over. I came here from another country and we were poor, so it was ok for Mom to sell us to men who wanted to rape little kids. I was 6 months old and I remember this old man hurting me. I...

No One Believes Me

I think I have suffered long-term sexual abuse, but am not sure. I was laying down for a nap one day and all of a sudden a memory of miscarrying a baby popped in my head. I remembered everything so clearly, but the idea just came out of nowhere. It was so out of the blue. Later, I was doing homework for a psychology class and I got this image in my head of...

Am I Borderline?

I might be suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder, but I don’t know. It might be Bipolar Disorder as well. I have a lot of mood swings, that can last a week at least, and sometimes a month. My moods varies between depression/anxiety with extreme suicidal thoughts and self-harm tendencies and “normal” episodes when I’m mildly happy and enthusiastic, but some other days I can be normal, not really depressed nor euphoric or something, but...
