Dear Karen,

What would you say to someone you think is a multiple but denies it? My friend is so forgetful. I hate that she tells me five different versions of the same story and never takes the blame when she’s wrong. My friend accuses everyone around her because she can’t recall what she’s done or says. There’s no explanation, she’s got to be a multiple. I hear her talk in different tones and styles. I watch her when she moves about a crowd and acts if I don’t exist. Shes got to be dissociating. What else could it be? Can you tell me how to check for sure? What can I do to confirm that she is a multiple like you?

Dear Bradley P,

I can empathize with your concerns regarding your friend, however you have not shared enough for me to give an opinion.  I am not a professional therapist and can’t give advice, but your friend may be suffering from multiplicity, or something other than multiplicity.

It’s true she may be suffering some type of dissociation problem.  What you had shared are some of the signs. But it’s best not to try to diagnose this yourself. Instead, talk with her about seeking professional help.  

It’s best to seek help as soon as possible.

Karen
