So, I find Multiple Personlity Disorder, which I believe is now known as DID – Dissociative Identity Disorder – utterly fascinating. Numerous personalities, totally different people all within the core host, handling life for the person when they cannot. Usually, that’s due to trauma of some sort.
When I think of my Bipolar experience, I feel like I have a few people knocking around inside of me. I don’t lose time and blackout, though, which I believe those with DID do sometimes. (If you suffer with DID or know someone who does, and you have better or more accurate info, please do share. I would love to hear.)
Point is, there are at least three of me, and truthfully, probably more. Depressed Jen is apathetic and cannot move. That usually leads to Anxious Jen because important things are not getting done, who in turn brings out Paranoid Jen. Good times! 👍
Manic Jen – she, nor anyone unfortunate enough to be in her lethal path, stand a chance. That’s definitely another personality, another person. You can’t convince me it’s not. (Not all mania is giddy and euphoric, by the way.)
Again, I aim for Stable Jen to conquer Depressive Jen and Manic Jen. That proves mighty difficult, though. The quest to tame these moody gals is utterly exhausting.
