Symptoms and Causes of Split Personality Disorder

Symptoms and Causes of Split Personality Disorder

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:

  1. Severe depression
  2. Sleeping problems such as insomnia or sleep apnea
  3. Alcohol or drug abuse
  4. Anxiety attacks and phobias
  5. Suicidal tendencies
  6. Abnormal rituals and compulsions
  7. Visual or auditory hallucinations
  8. Self-persecution and self-sabotage tendencies
  9. Time-loss and amnesia
  10. Mood swings
  11. Headaches and migraines
  12. Inability to remember important personal information
  13. '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.

Am 42 year old female with bipolar disorder and under going treatment for that. As of now my craving for sweet has increased tremendously and eating disorder also can be noticed. My body weight has always been towards the heavier side but recently it has increased and irregular periods also have started. What can the doctor suggest?

irregular periods may be due to increase in body weight and also due to effects of medicines. I would advice you to do the following tests- serum FSH,LH,PROLACTIN,TSH ,Hb and a Transvaginal USG first.

I am 19 years old male. I want to have sex some times. I was doing good in all other works. Of course I have tried to control by watching porn some times but I was not at all OK with it. Can I go to a girl (prostitute) for satisfying my desire by taking some protective aids. What was wrong about to have sex with someone who is OK to it. Is prostitution illegal in INDIA. I have checked some sites, that saying prostitution is legal in INDIA expect pimps and brothels. What should I do?

Dear Santhosh. Welcome to lybrate. Sexual desire is purely psychological and you can easily live without fulfilling sexual desire. There is no need to go to a prostitute to fulfill your sexual desire. Masturbation should do the trick. In my opinion, you should restrict yourself from using a prostitute. Take care.

What to do to boost my memory. Whn m forgetting every thng that I m tryng to study, whn my brain is not available to capture any word or any thng elz!?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You need to look at what is disturbing you emotionally. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, If your anxiety interferes with your life, you need treatment. If you consult a psychiatrist, she/he may prescribe an anxiolytic for a short term. You can also request for relaxation or cognitive therapy in addition. Please keep a watch against substance use/abuse for relief from anxiety.

I am a regular student and my weight has been a topic of stress for me since a few days. Since a very long time i'm trying to put on some weight. Tried a lot of things but nothing seems to work. Need some advice.

To gain weight you should eat more calories than you burn. Plus not only you have to eat calorie dense food but you have to keep in mind that what you are eating is healthy too. In the process of weight gain you do not want to put weight in an uneven manner and look unhealthy rather than looking bright and healthy. 1. Start with changing your lifestly. Start working out if you are not active. The biggest myth that prevails now a days is that thin people do not need to work out. This is wrong. When you challenge your body, it is forced to grow. But this growth can only be possible if you are eating enough food to let the body absorb and grow in size and muscles. 2. Eat Healthy – Stop drinking and smoking too much if you are indulged in it. Limit your intake of junk food, pepsi, sugary stuff etc. Do not at all starve yourself. Make it a habit to eat something healthy every 3 hours. This means you have to eat 6 small meals in a day. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. b. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. c. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. d. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. e. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. f. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. g. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow the regimen of weight gain religiously and you will soon start seeing the results.

Sir I use to forget things frequently and sometimes I forget the work I have gone for.Please suggest some solution

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This type of forgetfulness is not normal and is definitely stress induced. It is referred to as discounting: which is really a loss of awareness though we wrongly describe it as forgetting, for want of a better word. You are discounting almost like that of an aged person. You need to identify the stress and do some work with a counselor to sort it out. You may be aware of the stress but have not done anything substantial to deal with it and so the extent of discounting. It has to do with an emotion, normally. Are you sad, scared, or angry, and are you not expressing the same? There are other reasons for discounting but I will not go into that to avoid confusing you. If you are not able to relate to he emotional factor, let me know and we can explore the other contributing factors.

Hello doctor, Am 9 month pregnant. Its my 2nd marriage. Still last month I don’t have any family support. Somehow I managed and now my parents accepted me. My husband took care of me very well. When my 7th month started I found some changes in his activities. I found that he is having affair with his old college mate. She is a person who unsatisfied with her family life. She is having 2 female kids. After 15 years back she came back to my husband life. My husband mind get distracted. He totally become mad. When she enter he is not at all speaking to me. She knows well that am pregnant. But as her wish she is dragging my husband. She is living in abroad. She came india to meet my husband. Luckily, there is no physical relationship between them. She went again to her place. Now problem is he forget my things. He is thinking her as his wife. He is not at all spending any money for my pregnancy. 2 time I warned her to stop her illegal things. She used to speak with my husband night times. She clearly mentioning she can not come out from her family life. She is very rich. Manytimes she sent money to my husband. I hate all this unwanted things. Am totally depressed. I could’t take this as simple. She is seducing him very cheap manner. They both are sharing their nude pictures. My husband always forcing her to send her photos before sleep. My husband thinking that I don’t know anything much. Just 4 days back he told, I could’t forget her. Am speaking to her as a friend. There is nothing between us more than this. But yesterday my husband sent his lower nude picture to her. Am crying very badly. He is taking some steps to moving to her place. He told me that, he will not go. I guess he is playing double game with me and her. Still now he wants her in his life. He don’t care about me and my delivery. He is saying “you were wanted baby from me. I gave you. Live with that. Don’t call me for delivery and other functions. I done what you want. Don’t bother me anymore”. Doctor, I just keeping my feelings inside me. I did’t ask anything to him. Because its my life. I know he is crossing moral ethics. I elly need him to come for my delivery. This is my last hope. I hope that, once he see our baby there is a chance to change in his mind. Doctor please advice me to handle him. Still this second they both are keep chatting. He is going extreme crazy which spoiling my family life. I want him back in my life. Is there is any possible after child birth his mind will change? Please say best suggestion to me.

Homeopath, Pune
Hello don't worry he will come back to u.after delivery he will realize. Don't take any stress. Now you care urself and your baby. Pregnancy can lead to greater intimacy, but it also can trigger less pleasant changes in a relationship, including infidelity. “It’s very important for women to be aware that this is a critical time and to be vigilant, unexplained absences, strange phone calls, spending more time “at work,” less interest in sex and a greater focus on his appearance. At the same time, you have to be aware that hormones may be affecting your thoughts and emotions, Rather than jumping to conclusions alone, process your feelings with a trusted confidante outside the family. If a certain behavior seems suspect, ask questions rather than accuse when broaching the subject. “Your first approach may be to ask your partner if he can explain. Despite the challenges pregnancy brings to a relationship, infidelity is not inevitable. One thing you can do is sit down with your partner as early as possible in the pregnancy to discuss what your plans might be if your sexual interest drops. “If you say, ‘I really want to talk about our options if I don’t feeling like having sex,’ believe me, he’s going to pay attention, And sex doesn’t have to involve intercourse. “Experiencing sexual release through touch, mouth or massage speaks very powerfully to men,“Encourage him by telling him he’s going to be a great father.” And get him involved in the pregnancy and planning for a baby, focusing on his skills. While he may not want to discuss nursery colors, he may want to build a crib. Difficult as it may feel, actively preventing or addressing the issue can strengthen a relationship. “Infidelity is not a death knell; it’s often just a wake-up call,” so everything will be fine after your delivery. Take care.
