Hi. So quick backstory uh I’m officially diagnosed with BPD but not DID but I’m starting to have stronger evidence it might in fact be the latter, or possibly both? Not sure. So i just want y’all’s thoughts on the latest odd behavior that I’m now realizing I’ve done all my life, but also suspecting why as well…. Anywho….. I’ve always avoided scrolling very far back in my own posts on ANY type of social media site, including this one. Never really noticed. Well, I’ve been a bit extra introspective as of late, and noticed sometimes old comments i made that come across my feed for whatever reason make me deeply uncomfortable, for two reasons. 1: i simply have no memory of making them at all and 2: i would never under any circumstances ever ever even say that thing. Well today it happened again, except this time said disturbing comment was on MY old post…. Which was equally bothersome. Something clicked in my head and, risking worse a bit of discomfort, scrolled back in my own posts pretty far. Some of them i remembered. Some i did not. And a lot of the ‘not’ ones were things i would never say. I realized without looking (thereby avoiding the most extreme discomfort yet) that i do the same thing (not scrolling back) in the most extreme form with messages. Yikes. Imo there are vastly compounding issues as to why this is problematic. Please think this thru before replying…. I don’t want to list all the symptoms I’ve come up with that fit the DID requirements perfectly or this post would be 5x this long haha. Also pardon me for not describing better… there’s still a lot of terminology i don’t know. TL;DR: Please tell me if this is something a DID individual would experience. TIA 💜

      Dissociation is a symptom of more than one condition and the disorientation can make you say or do some things you wouldnt have otherwise. However realizing upper done things you don't remember and might not like is a common experience and lately for us has felt like a kind of overly repetitive experience. If you have any other questions about it I'm open to talking

      Hi, we're diagnosed with both of these, and I'm going to be as honest as possible with this. Symptoms and such can easily overlap and it can be very difficult to tell the difference between the two as you experience them. I highly recommend that you do a lot of research into DID as you write down the symptoms you have, the ones you don't have, and any changes in symptoms you notice over time as a beginning step. It's a small but important thing to do, it'll help to have that much information and you can compare the symptoms to BPD symptoms to better understand it. I know a lot of people would just say go to a professional, which I agree with, but that's not always possible in everyone's case. If it is in yours then I recommend it, but if this is not a possibility then this is my advice. I'm so sorry if this is messily written as it's very early for us. Please message if you need me to explain further or if you need me to reword what I've said

        @SweetSleep I want to add that, yes, this is something a DID individual would experience, but can also be caused by other things, which is why I left my original message to help figure out if it is DID or not

Based on the context provided, it's not possible to definitively say whether this is something a person with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) would experience. However, one of the symptoms of DID can be memory loss or gaps in memory, which could potentially explain not remembering certain posts or comments. It's important to consult with a mental health professional for an accurate diagnosis and treatment options.
