Let me just make something clear

If you want to go see Split for whatever reason I am not mad at you. I’m not thrilled but I’m not going to yell at you about it or call you a horrible person. All I ask is that you remember this is a work of fiction and not an accurate representation of DID. and that you ask questions if you have them to help you understand what DID really is. I would be happy to answer questions. Traumadissociation.com is a great site for info on DID. I personally am not going to see it because I don’t agree with how it represents people with DID and feel like it would probably upset me but if you really really want to see it I won’t blame you…I blame the people who made the movie and even then I tried to work with them rather than against with the PSA petition but they are ignoring us so time for a different approach I suppose…I just want to be understood and not feared. Of course I wish people wouldn’t see it but I know some people will no matter what and I respect their choice. So go see the movie if you really want to see it but don’t let it effect your opinion of us. ~Amelia

DID facts

I have been seeing a lot of misinfo about DID lately. Just some facts:

-People with DID can have as little as 1 other alter and as many as hundreds.

-DID effects 1-3% of the population (about the same as people with naturally red hair)

-people with DID are statistically more likely to be victims of a crime and no more likely to commit one

-DID is the result of severe childhood trauma

-DID is different for each person who has it

-many people with DID do know about and can communicate with their alters (especially after being diagnosed and working in therapy)
