 What kind of disease is DID that shows multiple personalities in one person?

Most of the people must have heard at one point or another that 'many souls reside in one body'. In some places, things like tantra mantras are also used to get rid of the superstition of ghosts or divine power residing in the body.

But it is not a ghost but a mental illness. Due to a problem in the mind for some reason, such a problem appears in people. This is called 'Dissociative Identity Disorder' (DID).

Earlier it was also called 'multiple personality disorder'. But now the name has been changed and called Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).

What is DID?

Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is a mental disorder. In which one person has two or more personalities. The problem in this is called 'dissociation'. It means that the mind is hyper-aware of mental processes, separating itself from perception and memory.

Cause of DID

There can be many reasons for the problem of DID. But the biggest reason for this is trauma. It means any kind of physical or mental shock. Especially it can be due to physical, mental or sexual abuse during childhood.

A study found that nearly 90 percent of people with ADHD in the United States, Canada, and Europe had been abused (physically, sexually, or emotionally) as children. Some were not abused, but they appeared to have experienced severe trauma such as a major loss (such as the untimely death of a father or mother).

Various sensations, memories of bad events and feelings are rooted in such abused children. Which gradually becomes dominant and shows different behavior (laughing, crying, shouting, being violent) in them.

This problem will not become complicated in the future if the children who are facing such problems are identified in time and given protection and treatment.

Incident 1

Rishiv (name changed) was beaten by his parents since childhood. He was quiet and lived quietly. When he turned 18, his mind could not control it and a different personality developed in him. This personality used to face when his father beat him. When the father beat him slowly, he would also raise his hand, which the father would be surprised to see.

 Incident 2

Shahnaz (name changed) is a member of a staunch Muslim family. Her marriage was arranged with a relative in her childhood. Due to this problem, Shahnaz developed a second personality. When she stepped out of the house, Shahnaz used to behave violently. He and his family members said that for some time the ghost came into the body. After a medical examination, Shahnaz was diagnosed with DID.

Incident 3

Daniel (name changed) is a resident of UK. He was teased and teased a lot in school. She can never stand in front of other children. Because of this, two new personalities gradually developed in him, which protected him from the bullying of his friends. Another personality taught how to live like an old man.

Are DID portrayed correctly in the film?

As this subject is very interesting, this disorder is shown in an exaggerated manner in the film. In the films, the personality of DID is presented as a 'monster'. But in reality it does not happen.

What does their personality do to those who have such problems in this disease? There is an opinion that it is not known. But not like that, they remember everything.

 What is the treatment?

Deep psychotherapy is needed in the treatment of DID. Among which methods such as mental therapy, family therapy (understanding the feelings of the target person, creating a comfortable environment), relaxation techniques and meditation are adopted. Medicines are also used depending on the condition of the person. In addition, the patient is trained not to be triggered by trauma.

The problem is difficult to identify

DID patients are seen as crazy in the society. Most of the DID patients are from rural areas and are suffering from some kind of trauma. But ironically, due to lack of awareness, such patients never come forward. As a result, there is no access to such mental health services.
