I've heard that people who have DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) are unaware of their multiple personalities. However, I'm fairly sure that I do. This isn't something minimal like mood swings, or even bipolar disorder - she's a completely different person. She views the world in a completely different way, and sometimes her thoughts scare me.
I'm aware of her existance, and I don't black out when she comes through, but...I feel like a different person when I'm her, and when I look back on her thoughts, I feel terrified.
Which brings me to another issue: I researched on the internet for a long time, looking up how I feel when I'm her, and...I'm fairly certain that she's a psychopath. The way she thinks coincides with the symptoms, though I myself don't fall into any of those categories.
When she's thinking, she just accepts the fact that her thinking is skewed, even feels proud of her warped mind.
Do I have DID? Am I insane? I'm really confused, I don't know how to bring this up with any psychologist. When I'm me, I'm scared that I'll be wrong and won't be helped properly. When I'm her, she doesn't want help. What do I do? What's wrong with me?
