Previously known as multiple personality disorder or simply split personality disorder, dissociative identity disorder is a very serious and unpleasant form of dissociation. It is based on the lack of connection, or rather a discontinuity in thought, action, feeling, memory or even a misplaced sense of identity. It is usually considered to be a result of severe traumatic experiences in early childhood, varying from extremely physical to repeated emotional or sexual abuse. It is thought to be a self-defense mechanism where the person dissociates himself from any such experience or situation that would deem to be harmful to his or her conscious self. It is, however, not to be confused with schizophrenia.
There are innumerable indicators that point towards dissociative identity disorder. Some of them include:
- Severe depression
- Sleeping problems such as insomnia or sleep apnea
- Alcohol or drug abuse
- Anxiety attacks and phobias
- Suicidal tendencies
- Abnormal rituals and compulsions
- Visual or auditory hallucinations
- Self-persecution and self-sabotage tendencies
- Time-loss and amnesia
- Mood swings
- Headaches and migraines
- Inability to remember important personal information
- 'Switching' of identities
The main causes of split personality disorder are unfortunately still unclear and vague, although 99% of persons who suffer from this disorder have a severe traumatic history or background. The causes need not be physical or sexual abuse. It could also stem from emotional abuse like insistent neglect. Studies have also showed that children may become dissociative, if their parents are either too strict or unpredictable. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.
Sir, I have problem of nervousness. I get very much nervous particularly any problem occur related to health specially related to my child. Always the worst thing comes in my mind and that thought captures my entire mind. I get so nervous that I become shivering and useless. Always some negative thought only about illness of my children moves in my mind more when I remain out of my House. Always I keep thinking about welfare of them. I don't want to go on tour because of this suspicion and this fear has become so serious that my daily life has total disturbed. My mind and thinking is totally captured with the fear of diseases. My total life is disturbed because of the same. Sir, Please advice is there any treatment of this mental problem which I have been facing from my childhood. Regards.
This friend of mine lost her father in 2014. Currently she's facing the problems as follows: 1. Feeling terribly uneasy while being alone. 2. Hypertension. 3. Can't sleep at night. Some kind of fear keeps her awake and refrained from putting the lights out. Feels comfortable to sleep when sunlight arrives. 4. Dreams of someone dying, of the snakes etc. 5. Unable to close the eyes. What can possibly be the issue? What is to be done now? Will be of great help if your kindness shed some fruitful advice. Waiting for response.
Childhood depression is a condition marked by persistent sadness. It causes the child to feel lonely, hopeless, helpless and worthless. If this type of a sadness persists, it can disrupt his/her childhood and may have lasting effects even into adulthood. If neglected, childhood depression can lead to suicide.
What are the causes?
The exact cause of childhood depression is not known but a combination of other factors can lead to such. Some of them are:
- Physical health
- Family and external environment
- Mental health
- Genetic vulnerability and
- Biochemical disturbance
Children who suffer from such depression can behave and misbehave erratically. Yet, some children may continue to behave reasonably well in structured environments. Some young children may impulsively attempt suicide due to anger and frustration. Studies show that girls are more likely to commit suicide than boys.
What are the symptoms?
Children who suffer from such depression exhibit certain symptoms. Some of them are:
- Increased or decreased appetite
- Changes in sleeping patterns
- Difficulty in concentration
- Sadness and hopelessness
- Vocal outbursts
- Irritability and anger
- Increased sensitivity to rejection
- uicidal thoughts
Some children start to use drugs or pick up detrimental habits like smoking and drinking to evade their depression. Children with a family history of physical or sexual abuse are at a greater risk of experiencing depression. Consulting a therapist or a counselor in this case is duly advised.
