So I’ve been seeing a bunch of these humans are weird space orcs from space Australia stories touching on different mental illnesses but haven’t seen any on DID so I thought I’d take a crack at it:
Zu'lak: Human Tera!
*seconds go bye*
Zu'lak: *starts moving closer* Human Tera!
Me *whispery scratchy voice*: Oh hey, uh Tera isn’t around at the moment, whaddya need?
Zu'lak: What do you mean Human Tera is not here? I can clearly see you standing in front of me. And what is wrong with your voice? Are you ill?
Me: *sighs* In a way yes. We have this disorder, dissociative identity disorder, it’s something our brain did as a coping mechanism as a result of trauma as a child. In layman’s terms we essentially have multiple people sharing a body.
Zu'lak: I do not understand. You have multiple sentient life forms all inhabiting one body? And you are still able to function? How many of you are there?
Me: More or less yeah, there are a LOT of other stuff that come along with it. And the amount of people can vary from system to system, some have just a few, some have dozens.
Zu'lak: Dozens?? *writes all this down in a notebook* So if you are not Human Tera what are you referred to as?
Zu'lak: Very well Human Dawn–
Me: Just Dawn is fine.
Zu'lak: Very well Dawn. Come with me you must inform me of all you know of this disorder you have so we may accommodate you accordingly.
