So basically sometimes I feel like I have another person in my head and I let her take over and control my behaviors and it’s like I switch between two different mindsets, I don’t know what it is but several people think I have DID, what is it like?

      For me personally it will often feel like I'm dreaming and I'm watching somebody else control my body as it's happening. But that's now that I've built up good communication with my alters. When I first started becoming aware of it switching resembled more of something like road hypnosis, where you remember getting in the car, but the next moment you're at your destination and are panicked because you don't remember how you got there. I'd really stress that there are a LOT of different dissociative disorders and derealization disorders so you should definitely check-in with a professional and talk with them about it first. With DID it's more like living with fully functioning, thinking, living people just in the same body. Which from your post I don't think that's what you're experiencing but I could be wrong, please correct me if I am. To me it sounds like you're abruptly shifting to a different mindset which definitely could still be a derealization or dissociative disorder, but probably not DID. But once again, definitely try and talk to a professional about it if it's causing you difficulties in everyday life. Feel free to DM me as well with more questions if you have any. I'm always happy to help ❤️
