Karen answers Dennison

admin on Mar 23rd 2015

I read multiple personality disorder is the same as dissociative identity disorder and that it is a form of schizophrenia. Are you schizophrenic? Is there a difference? Can Richard Baer define the differences? Does being labeled schizophrenic offend you? I don’t believe the two are the same. You are amazing.

Dear Dennison,

Yes, multiple personality disorder is the same and has been renamed dissociative identity disorder. It is not a form of schizophrenia. I am not nor ever have been diagnosed schizophrenic. No, I am not offended, by no means. I have come to terms with my diagnosis and have healed. I’m not perfect, for no one is, but there are differences in the two in which I am not qualified to share.

Thank you for thinking I am amazing! Love your compliment.

Karen
