How do I help a friend, my best friend, who is suffering greatly from past abuse. She changed so much it is my concern she has mpd. Most lately she is not herself. I am frightened to confront her. When your alters were active would they attack a concerned friend who suggests therapy? I feel lost. Shes been like this for three months now. Any advice?
Dear Nadirah,
Thank you for your question! It’s my hope that you are no longer afraid. Please remember not to be afraid or show fear because those actions will simply cause any aggressive alters to be aggressive. Trust me when I say multiples are attuned to your fears and can tell when someone is lying or false. I know you feel lost, but there is hope in being consistent. Be cautious and take care of yourself first. If you need to step away to do that, then do so.  Relationships go both ways, be a friend and hopefully she will understand your concern and turn around and respect you for caring.
My alters never attacked anyone for suggesting therapy, my alters may have attacked when they were attacked or threatened by someone. An alter’s reason for being is to protect, not harm.
Wishing you all my best.
