Split personality disorder

split personality disorder Split personality disorderSuffering from split personality disorder can be a very confusing and frustrating experience for those that have been diagnosed with the disorder. A loss of identity is often the first indicator of the disorder and can leave the patient unable to realize who they are as well as what is happening within their mind.

There are many probable causes that have been thought to be associated with split personality disorder. These include a trauma that is being withheld from the subconscious and therefore the individual creates a personality as a coping method to be able to forget about the trauma. Others believe that certain disorders within the brain can cause the disorder to form and the individual to create other personalities within the mind.

Signs of a split personality disorder may include a complete loss of identity and may even include the patient being unable to remember activities and events that have occurred while the person was under the control of the alter personality. Some experts believe that the individual may exhibit uncharacteristic changes in behavior, even in the base or the original personality and may recluse themselves from family members and friends – shutting out the support system. Other signs may include a gap in memories of certain events or the onset of depression and mood disorders.
