Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is, for all intents and purposes, "multiple personality disorder" re-branded. Shockingly enough (note the sarcasm), it turns out that people who have multiple personalities, or alters, can't all be thrown into the same box.
We're still people. We're just different.
Unfortunately, as far as the general population is concerned, if you hear voices, see things that aren't there, and sometimes lose track of what's real and what's considered fantasy, you're crazy and should be either medicated or institutionalized.
Whatever the event which connected nine souls and just as many versions of our shared life, this is who we are and how we have always been. At first we thought it was normal, but when the people around us started throwing around labels like "disturbed" and "possessed," life became a much scarier place where the only option available was to hide. Then puberty hit.
The nearly 20 years which followed have been anything but easy, but as with any group of people stuck in an elevator for long periods of time, eventually a sort of synergy was found, and writing became our catalyst for harmony. Now we - yes, all nine of us - use our talents to show others how they can do the same, because when you're not allowed time to yourself, you realize how unnecessary it truly is, how unnecessary self is.
"I Am the Walrus," by John Lenon and Paul McCartney, says it best: I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
Let us prove it.
Meet the System
Having hidden our true self away for three decades, several of us are still too shy to readily identify as individuals,
but in time, we hope to show our parts in every form and manifestation as proud and beautiful
members of something greater than any one of us can be alone.
Please be patient with us. (:
