I probably don’t have DID, but there is something I have that reminds me of it. I think I’m “personifying my emotions.” And it’s not a mental illness/condition. That’s what I’m thinking. Is anyone here also “personifying their emotions?” It is to the point you believe that they are real. They are actual people living in your body and controlling you. They are you, but also not you. Like they are part of you, in some way. I don’t have depression, but I know they are trying to get to me. Let me know if you are experiencing this, thanks!

      It could be a case of many fragments. A fragment in a system is an alter that is meant to have one specific role. They may or may not have a name, and typically they represent one or two emotions, or are there only to do one specific job (like a fragment whose only role is to do chores or something).

        @royalty Maybe but I’m unsure

      Try the app called Antar. It will help you give these sides some form.

      We have an alter, L, who embodies happiness. It isn't uncommon for alters to embody emotions or mainly act within the realms of one emotion. Have you tried to reach out to the emotions controlling your body, to see if you can communicate?

        @cheese.wedge yeah I can sometimes communicate with the one that wants total control over my body. I call them “sides/selfs” as it’s more easy and reasonable for me to say (as alters mean your a system and I’m not). I have a lot of info on my sides, and I am continuously learning more about them.

          @Starfruit7 why don't you think you're a system?
