> Does anyone have dissociative identity disorder(mpd). What meds have helped you??

I had that diagnosis some years back. I say "had" because I think now it was b.s. Like other people, I only started getting better when I was no longer seeing my therapist. Not that I blame her as she was well intentioned and that was the conventional wisdom at the time, but what therapy and that diagnosis did was perpetuate the problem primarily. In accepting this diagnosis and treatment for it, I thought as my life disintegrated that I was "breaking eggs to make an omelet", but what I was left with after years invested was simply the breakage of dysfunction and debilitating depression.

My thinking now about DID is that our minds have a tremendous need and capability to "make sense" of things. Given certain kinds of information and experience, recalled or only suspected, it will attempt to fill in any blanks and create an explanation that fits the whole.

If past trauma is part of your experience, I recommend the book "Coping with Trauma: A Guide to Self-Understanding"
by Jon G. Allen, Ph.D. I particularly found helpful his explanation of memory and states of consciousness during trauma.

No meds helped me.

Good luck. If you continue down this path, you're going to need it.
