    I know of someone on the road who has D.I.D. or Multiple Personality Disorder. Is there any way of making it safe for them if they are alone? Or should they be with someone at all times (if posssble)?

    As a recovering D.I.D.er myself, id say its not up to you...depending on the nature of the other personalities, it could be hard to keep anyone around, maybe even dangerous. not bashin yer friend of course but don't drag yerself down...iunno. care but don't risk yourself. all the love in the world won't fix it. its something inside fighting to align..

    If you don't mind me asking, how did you find a way to deal with this disorder? I remember taking a psychology class, and DID always intrigued me. Of course, if it's too personal, you don't have to answer.

    My wife has it and yes.. even with the tits-in-the-dirt meds, she is required to have a "caregiver" (me) with her just in case. Her eye color changes on a switch. I know, i know. I didnt believe it until i saw it myself.
