Eek! Dont arm chair them into a different mental illness. They're just bad actors who want attention lol.
sage and sorry to blogpost but yeah, i have experience with DID and memories/innerworld is an actual phenomenon but its similar to delusions/psychosis. obviously its not real, its just something that a mentally ill/traumatized brain comes up with, although i am extra skeptical of people who claim they have an extremely elaborate innerworld like she does. most commonly its more like a house or dinner table, as opposed to these huge worlds these snowflakes try to make it seem like.
the most unbelievable things/redflags in these attention-seeking videos are the "nooo i dont wanna switch!" and "i feel like a switch is happening" and "oh i see a switch happened" bullshit that takes place in >>663557
I'm gonna be like last anon and blogpost a bit, but I've had moments of complete dissociation during extremely stressful times while I was trying to cope with my newly developed PTSD a few years ago and the alter shit is BS. I don't think these people realize your mood is constantly changing ever so slightly and they just chalk it up to "I'm switching." lmao
there are some people calling themselves plural systems and genderfluid that fit the criteria for these as well. i can't find the video anymore but the one with Doug McDonald / VanguardVivian / incantatricks driving in his car and basically just flips his hair to the side and suddenly has a lisp. Then there was a later video of him at home and he was back to normal saying he's a boy now.
maybe OT mostly because they aren't a YTer but seeing this thread reminded me of FreyasSpirit, someone with 104 headmates and counting https://archive.fo/o/962og/https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18mRSv23gzFcxfF8h0qEb95ibZU3r6AG7EJUEuRXv5OU/edit%23gid=0
Thanks for the thread, anon!>>663560
I used to watch her videos routinely for a bit while I did stuff around the house. She basically eventually made a video about "was I talking my DID?" And she says the answer is "yes in addition to no". She took the route instead now of being holier than thou, very angelic holistic type, basically what she was trying to pass "iris" off as in her introduction video. She then went on to make videos under the channel name elle stone, in a very deliberately-trying-to-look-casual blog style.
I found her autumn asphodel channel video about her mother one of the most interesting tbh. I don't buy the DID train at all but I bet she has some legit issues obviously. She will always be pioneer cow of this shit for me.
Is anyone familiar with multiplicityandme? I have watched a decent few of her videos and a tv appearance and she seems like a nice woman but I'm not as familiar with her as with the others.
First of all, oh gosh this thread, I've been waiting for this. I try not to blogpost too much.
I'm diagnosed with DID and the first time I heard of an 'inner world' was in therapy as part of an exercise to calm down that inner world, as part of the very essence of how it's like living with DID is that your mind is constantly in turmoil of different opinions and moods. You have to figure yourself out, and it's a painful and long process.
The "I don't wanna switch" thing is total bullcrap. Switching most often does not feel like anything, and it's not like some magical posession moment out of a fantasy novel. These people are bringing dissociative disorders to the mud even more. This pains me because there's already so many doctors out there who doubt dissociation's excistence. There are so many people who struggle to get the kind of treatment they need and just hang on somehow and not make everyone's business to know they have a dissociated personality.
I'd also say 99% of people with DID would not call their dissociative parts different personalities or DID a multiple personality disorder. These are not correct terms in the medical world or correct terms to describe the disorder's mechanism.
The final thing that makes me doubt every single person who has filmed their alters, is that it's impossible to do so. Also the 'alters' itself seem pretty fake. The most common type of dissociative parts is a child part who might or might not remember traumatic events. I'd say in most cases child 'alters' are a crucial part of living with this disorder. Some people might be able to trigger
a switch on purpose, however you can't choose which personality is active like that. It's not acting, it's automatic. And dehabiliting. Some people are, or have learned to be very aware of their alters, and can describe them better than others but they can't just choose them yet alone film them. Most likely your parts or alters wouldn't even be aware that the camera is on and just do whatever they like, some might strongly disagree with being filmed. But most importantly you can't just catch your switches on camera unless you film yourself 24/7 in different situations. If they have such strongly different personality parts they would most likely be in a bad state, anxiety, depression and suffer from amnesia quite often. That's how DID feels. Not "oh no I feel a switch is coming".
I hope these disrespectful kids just stop utilizing other people's disorders for views or sympathy. Guess it's easy to pick up DID from a sea of disorders because it sounds oh so cool and edgy. Too bad you can't act it.
I'm so excited for this thread tbh. I've been watching the videos of some of these people for a while and they're absolutely ridiculous.>>664160
Oh man multiplicityandme is one of the worst, imo. All of her "alters" are sexy emo boys and iirc two are married to each other…? The idea that these "alters" interact with each other is totally ludicrous to me, it's more like all these chicks have OCs and no one to roleplay them with.
Multiplicityandme is probably legit. I found her off a BBC documentary that basically followed people that had been sectioned or were coping with mental health issues a few years ago, she evens had the trailer on her channel I think.
I do generally agree that her alters basically seem like a bunch of emos but I find it unlikely she could fake the medical screenings and shit so ehhh.
You've made a few German-to-English errors.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
They literally did brain scans with her and analysed them, I think she may actually have a video on it. The fact that she is also being picked up for documentaries would suggest that you know… there is something going on there. It's one thing to fake/over exaggerate part of it and another to do the entire thing fully.
I do think that she is partially playing up the entire thing but at the same time since you know… that's exactly what YouTube is lmao.

Oh my god, this thread has reminded me of a horrifying cow that I have stumbled upon tumblr. Pic very much related.
It's a 20 years old MTF that claims to have multiple personalities, each with retarded animu chibi character, own mental illnesses and even catchprases.

thanks for giving your opinions anons,
This video here is also complete bullshit I already know.
Is it even fucking possible to have your alters behave like this and all go to the journal and follow the rules and write to eachother?? also how does one just "discover" a new alter and end up with like 30 ???
Harsh truth but when someone is trans and
DID, then they're probably not both.
Those are like the two most popular, ~cool~ attention-seeking "disorders" (quotation marks not because I don't believe in them, but I don't believe people on dumblr) on tumblr so that's usually a critical hit to the story
Oooh yes I remember now. Her two older alters are husbands and her kid alter is their child. And she has a random cringe alter who is like an American celebrity dream boy with an American accent. I can't watch her videos much to be honest because all of her acts except the cockney guy make my physically cringe. Her husband has also pointed out that they still have sex when she is one of the guys because he is bi himself so he has a "lovely relationship" with the guys.>>664213
I remember this doc. Definitely a very ill woman, it made me sad how much of her life she had just… lost. There was a hot minute in the doc where they introduced some satanic panic if I remember correctly?? But other than that it's a decent watch.
It does seem like it could be rfake. I am from Europe so our therapy system and my experience' might vary slightly. However there is NO way this girl would be in such a good touch with her personality parts without therapy. And the goal of therapy for a person with DID is ALWAYS to get in touch with your alters so you can integrate them. What this community is doing is just focusing on how different their alters are and how they wanna live as a multiple. It's kinda like Pro-Ana for Dissociative personalities, snowflakey, possibly fake and first of disrespectful to people who are fighting for years to get an integrated personality, to live safe and solid life. Some people might find out about their alters from something they've written to a diary, and letters, e-mails or messages they've sent. This can provide a good chance to have a written down discussion with your alter. It's important to recognize and keep in touch with your alters in any way you can. But it does seem near impossible to me the alters would all know about the diaries, recognize their names and be willing to write to them. DID is a whole lot more random than that, and most likely many alters will not agree with the idea of co-operation so easily. Also it puts me off when people call themselves hosts. I'm not a fucking hostel, I am a SINGLE person living with a fragmented sense of self and trying to cope with it.
>>664497>I’m a cisgender male>feel free to hate me for some reason>but I’m gay as fuck
This a fakeboi lol@whut, when will they learn that no “cisgender male” whose born a male would ever refer to themselves as a “cisgender male”…. they just say “male” or don’t even mention male bc it should be obvious. What’s the purpose of this?
This is by far the cringiest “meet my alters” vid, thank you anon.
Multplicityandme is the worst out of the lot imo and encoured others to make those stupid fake videos.
I found this girl named Katie McDonald who has 24 different alters. One of the alter's name is Null, described as a databank kek. Another is named Glitch, who has a stutter. 5 of them are "littles" basically stereotypical toddlers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tbz2YwK2OMw
Here's a video of some of the littles opening their Christmas gifts.
She's fooled her mom and girlfriend into believing her or at least play along since most other videos where she's around more people she's always the host, Katie. The only time she switches away from home on vacation is in her parents' car or around her younger siblings.
She started off her YouTube channel pretending to be some British guy and quickly realized it wasn't ~unique~ enough.
The "Eve Black" personality seems like the personification of a Lana Del Rey song or something. Even the narrator describes her in a weirdly poetic, cinematic way:>"Lovable, lying, scampish, little harlot. Shrewdly deceitful, but without real malice. She forever carries disaster, lightly in each hand"
What the fuck is this? Lolita? Lmao. What a clinical, scientific evaluation. /s
All these "DID Switch Caught on Camera" videos have the same formula. Normally talk, "disassociate" (AKA thinking about what they're going to say next so there's a slight delay in the flow of speech,) then put on their little DID act.
Her "disassociate pause" was so hesitant and the emergence of her "alter" was so forced. The only change was more influxion in her speech and talking fast.

Huh, you're apparently right
her baby is all over her tumblr and instagram. she even made a q&a on her youtube recently where she talks about being a mother.
i genuinely believe that she has DID tho. she's not nearly as theatrical as other cows on this thread and her story consistently holds up. she's not a cow.
You didn't post the best one. Peep the badly drawn oc art for her little rp character at 4:05. That fucking lowered voice and style of talking is hilarious.>>716326
this was cringe from start to finish and is known for self diagnosing.
this creature also has it's own thread on here.
I actually know this girl, ( as does a close friend of mine) does anyone want me to discuss her? or is this old news? she was in a docu on the BBC and was on goodmorning britain ( popular TV show in the UK), what is worrrying is that she is training to be a psychotherpist ( she has a BSC hons in psychology) and was post grad in 2015/16 so I expect she will be let loose on patients, she was no dx by the NHS, she was dx by a specalist miles away from her hometown and he obviously had ulterior motives. what is worrying is one youtube vid she was switching alters when she was driving ( one of her alters is 8 years old), when people mentioned the dVLA as 8 years old cannot drive , she pulled it, if anyone is interested I will spill some tea.
basically she is full of BS loves the atten her husband is nearly as crazy as she is and loves the facts that one of alters is a horny males as he Bisexual and looks like a twink, she changes clothes and make up for each alter. she does have a talent for faking accents tho and is a good singer. The most worrying part is that she will be soon be treating people with mental health issues ( she got sacked from being a basic carer and tried to sue them) I have interacted in with this cow and she acts normal, it is only on youtube and interviews she pulls this crap. her docu was full of lies. anyone interested?
sorry for non sage and spelling I have a cluster headache what pisses me off is that I know someone who was on track to be a lawyer, had therapy for DID which unstabled her and now she is unemployed and did thigs like strip naked, urinate in the street, sleep with random men and got sectioned, this girl was gang raped and her mother blamed her for her baby sister death ( she was about 3 years old at the time). she went from being a trained lawyer and is now stuck in the NHS system which seems to have made her worse, so it annoys me as she is someone that does deserve therapy and she had no name for her alter, she wakes up in prison cell or hospital and NO she is not a drinker or abuses drugs sorry for not saging usually just read here. and forgot to sage.I also have a cluster headache so cannot concentrate but I will spill some tea when I am better. Jess would make a great actress and she was good in drama at school and was often chosen, she lives in an affluent area which I happen to live in, and everyone knows each other, the local comp is rated very highly due to the area, If she wants fame and attention she could go on the x factor or pursue acting. her husband knew her since she was a child and she slipped up in the doc, saying she was scared of men and spurned them ( they are childhood sweethearts) so was she spurning MEN in at age 11 when they met and dated at around 13 and been together ever since?) Some people found it a laugh, but since In a way I lost a close ' friend' to this illness it infuriates me.
yes please keep going, ignore >>729706
as we are CLEARLY a place for drama.>>729638
just… don't post? don't blog about your headaches, at any rate.
I’m a mate of the husband. Knew him at school and met his missus a few times. That’s why I know what you’re saying is bullshit.
Firstly dipshit the program was called This Morning. She and her sides still hang out with uni friends since they lived together. One of her uni mates even lodged with them both until last year.
She’s two miles up the road from her parents and they weren’t the ones to abuse her so that’s all your made up bullshit. And her and the Mr didn’t get together until he was 18. I remember it.
And you mean Llantarnam comp is highly recommended and known to the area? It was knocked down to built houses on several years ago you cretin and if it taught you it’s clear now why it got smashed to rubble. And what part of this shit hole of a town is affluent? If you call their terraced house living it up I’d hate to see your shoe box mate.
So no, no one wants your bullshit tea. It’s a strange show aye, but she’s a genuine lass and there are plenty of other cows to pick apart here.
it's almost like
might be lurking
i'm not any of these anons and don't know her irl but if you've followed her on social media and actually watched her vids you'd know most of this is fake.
the kid alter is not allowed to drive, she pulls over when she feels a switch coming on and if it's the kid she doesn't drive.
also she did work as a therapist for a while, she's on maternity leave right now. seems that she was a good therapist. i don't see why it's "dangerous" for her to be one? she's got a routine set up with her alters and it's not like they're the ones doing the therapy?
idk it's just frustrating that jess would be discussed here as she seems to be genuine and not a cow. there are plenty of did fakers out there that we could talk about
This is what DID really looks like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2atzoaA2NI
Some of these youtube DID even have a pateron FFS.
when was she supposedly called out and subsequently deleted her vids? i've been following her for about 2 years now on youtube, tumblr and insta and haven't seen that happen. i'll admit it. i like her content and i think did is a really interesting disorder.
i'd like to see some proof of what you're saying because from where i stand jess seems legit. also you seem to think alters are evil or something? they all love the baby and take good care of her which you would know if you had looked at her social media recently. her baby and thoughts about parenting with did is all over it
I'm not quite convinced DID even exists yet? The only people I've ever known or seen that claim to have it are drama feeding, attention seeking cunts. Seems to me like they just convince themselves they have a problem that makes them "better" than other people struggling with mental illness. Like multiple personalities? I don't know, something is wrong with these people and they deserve help as much as anyone else but I'm not sure it's what they say it is? I admit I am basing my opinions solely on those that I have known and seen on youtube or social media but bloody hell… I want to be open-minded but this DID business is so strange to me.>>737510
She seems sort of genuine but I feel like people who say they have DID are also just really well-trained manipulators much like narcissists. They know exactly what to say and how to carry themselves to benefit them the most.
The “we’re back” video goes over some stuff about her job and getting fired. I remember her posting on her tumblr years ago about the Sun article only saying “receptionist” because she felt they downplayed her work on purpose. She was working 7 days a week and the receptionist position was only on weekends. She was fired after the sun article was published despite them never mentioning her other role. I’ll try and dig up the old post on her page although she did delete that too after her first YouTube channel smh so I’m not sure if it’s still there.
She’s also a manager at her support job now so she can’t be all that bad at what she does.
If someone is under the CMHT and they fall pregnant a ' Child in Need. conference is held. This is to see if the mother needs extra support etc. These conferences can turn into a ' Child at risk' whereby her child and her parenting skills would be under scrutiny. Jess is no dummy, her alters behaviours have changed and matured and rather convenient she has new / split alters who ALL LOVE THE BABY. The area where Jess lives has reduced care due to NHS slashing the funding. Instead of 2 MHT in a small area, there is now only one. They are trying to make it as close to Community recovery Teams. Only people in crisis gets help, then gets discharged. There is a specialist therapy place for patients with severe BPD. These people are only sent there because they cannot functional in life. By that I mean In and out of hospitals, no job, self harming, no close friends, interpersonal difficulties, stress on the family etc. It is a last resort, It is extremely unlikely like one anon said jess has therapy for her CSA, while according to the same anon, she is able to hold down a responsible job, graduate and lives a good functional life. Why would G*
*A Therapy service that only accepts patients that are non functioning accept Jess? makes 0 sense. I have met Jess and she comes across as completely normal, The only time anyone has seen her switch is on YouTube Vids. She had a great interest in Drama/singing when she was younger. I find her switches on you tube cringy, but she does have a good singing voice/ good at accents and comes across as very likeable. She should have stuck to Drama Now that she is married with a child, I just hope she concentrates on that. There is no way she will risk her child for fake DID persona. With regards to her father, she talked about 'suing him' but never went into detail. Her father had no idea until about a year later this caused some fall out with her parents. Lots of vids got deleted and now she is all friendly with her father again. Her 'Husband' is a bit off and rumours are he is bisexual. TBH I find her tedious and I predict she will drop this you tube nonsense.
you're misinformed… jess doesn't have any new alters, she's had the same 4 ones forever - Jake, Jamie, Ed and Ollie. They haven't changed overnight when she got the baby. They've all stayed the same except for ed, who has been calmer since a long time before she even got pregnant. Even when he was acting out he loved children tho.
It's not a rumour that her husband is bi, he is very open about it and i don't see how it's relevant to anything.
youre allowed to not believe that shes sincere but at least get your facts straight if you're going to scream it from the top of your soap box.
I found this website/ thread after watching someone of those youtubers, to see if there was any info online about how obviously fake they are. The comments under those videos are sickening too. Not only do you have misinformation spread, but people are believing it, which is just making this diagnosis even more misunderstood.
I’m not diagnosed with it, but I do have a history of child abuse/ trauma, so that I understand. And do have a friend who was diagnosed with it (and a couple of people who I have known long term, and suspect this might be the case for them too).
None of these people are on social media. They’ve had life long struggles with relationships, employment, substance abuse, memory problems, stability. Even with my friend who was officially diagnosed, I never heard her refer to “alters”, or ever heard her refer to any kind of an official “switch”. She had therapy and said she was integrated, but sometimes I wondered, because mid conversation she’d suddenly present differently. It wasn’t some kind of official “switch”, which is why when that girl on Medcircle “brought out” her “alter” Minnie, it raised a red flag for me.
Honestly, I’ve never seen this diagnosis accurately portrayed on tv or movies, or YouTube. Those fake videos just make me sad and angry. The people who actually have this disorder are struggling in real life with complex PTSD, depression, anxiety, identity confusion, memory problems, relationship problems. The people living with this, particularly if they aren’t in therapy or haven’t found a therapist who understands, are just regular people, struggling day to day. You probably wouldn’t even know it, unless you were familiar with someone is real life who has this, it’s really not theatrical like you see on YouTube; these phonies parading a cast of characters for attention. It’s just not like that in real life.(blog)
Between those being like: >X girl is totes legit guys! I'm not X girl by the way, I'm just one of her many white knight alters, tee hee!
And those seeking validation with their awful blogs…that thread is a mess and not a entertaining one. Autosage when?
Well 1% is 1 of every 100 people in the general population, so that makes it over 3 million in the US. And it’s 11% among people who were severely abused. Considering that child emotional, sexual and physical abuse spans all socioeconomic & ethnic groups, chances are, we all probably either know, or have common across, people who have this disorder. And boys are victims of abuse too. Let’s not forget, men aren’t as likely to seek help for mental health issues. They oftentimes struggle on their own, fall into substance abuse, get incarcerated, etc. But there are men with this too.
But at any rate, if we know someone, they probably are more like Lilian Nattel (the woman who wrote Web of Angels), and not these youtube actor-scammers.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
oh wow a Betty Cooper from Riverdale alter "fictional introject"
this weirdo has a thread of their own too >>>/snow/412346
I know exactly who you're talking about, i saved the meet the alters video she made.
I thought i was going crazy, i couldn't find the channel or anything, i remember the channel name was something like nixie or something like that. Caitlyn (i dont know how she spells it)
The last video i remember seeing before the channel vanished was titled how to change your own diaper as a little, relating to ddlg.

Somehow didn't see this thread earlier. I've been going down the DID rabbit hole which seemed to pick up some traction again on YouTube ever since that Autumn Asphodel chick.
I've been lurking the DID subreddit and some other forums and am getting more of an impression that those forums have a lot of teenagers posting and faking DID.
>>*Void will likely only be quoted.
I don't know how some of those posters expect to be taken seriously when they claim to have Mary Sue Alters that came straight out of Tumblr.
File: 1557097443653.png (115.85 KB, 1920x1080, Screenshot_20190505-190135.png)
Some of the sigs are full of cringe. Here is one poster which had MLP type alters in his siggy.
I used to be massively interested in DID before tumblrinas because of the MK Ultra thing, SRA, etc but can't watch these youtube people be all like OMG WATCH ME SWITCH 100 TIMES ON CAMERA!!!1
Anyway, for those who DO follow this shit on YT or elsewhere, do any of them talk about how other DID people glamorise DID on the internet (kinda like how EDs can be glamorised)?
I was listening to a true crime podcast and the hosts mentioned how there's been a rise in people claiming DID since it's been featured more in films and on tv.
Youtube link related. New film Rupert, Rupert & Rupert, a COMEDY about a guy with DID. Looks like a fun mental illness to have.>>802521
The way they describe their ~alters~ reminds me of Pokemon cards or Top Trumps. It's really weird watching docus of people who're elderly or middle aged who claim DID. It's so different from these kids who have a wardrobe for every ~alter~
There is this person who has a channel and who talks about the experience of dissociative identity disorder. They made a video reminding viewers that the disorder comes from trauma and seems aware that people are glamorizing it.
I think this YouTuber in particular seems genuine because at one point he even vlogs his experiences while being admitted to some kind of psychiatric facility. I think it's this very same YouTuber that seems to be in some sort of relationship now with Disociadid, the girl who is featured in the OP and one of the ~OMG switches caught on camera~ YouTubers. I'm really not sure about her, not sure if she's for real or faking for views.
Everyone's entitled to their opinions, however personally I am inclined to believe it exists. It's in the DSM-5. I am a nurse and I've seen it only one time. Interesting like this anon >>802526
says, the only time I've seen it was an old person. Just like this anon said, she didn't have special clothes or whatever.
NTA but the existence of munchies doesn't mean fibromyalgia/cystic fibrosis/etc are fake, it's way more likely that they're ripping off a real disease like spoonies do than inventing a whole new one from scratch.
They're not that clever.
