How do I stop switching? I rapid switch and it’s really hard to control and concentrate when I’m switching so much. Any Advice?

      I just got diagnosed with multiple personality disorder and I'm having trouble dealing with it. I don't understand the symptoms and how to cope with them

      Communicate with each other. Work out an agreement on who can come out and when. Ask to be left alone when you need to focus on something.

      I find that it happens less when I am eating right and sleeping an appropriate amount (which is sometimes next to impossible with DID!) Grounding techniques and journaling also help.

      Finding something that helps ground you we find to be pretty important. For us we use music a lot of times to keep from accidentally switching out. Other times we'll use clothing like favourite jacket or pair of shoes to help stay grounded. I've heard of other systems using jewelry as well. Staying caffeinated and getting lots of rest (8 hours) the night before are also great for staying in a solid state.

      For us grounding helps and trying to figure it what triggers the switches can help :)) sometomes we get very swichy and blurry and have huge migrans sfter ir find it hard to differentiate-Payton

      For me, I find giving myself space during rapid switching is the most helpful. This gives my body time to get out of it's neurological response as well as giving time for us all to communicate. I'm not always the one in front at the end of this, but it usually leads to a consistent fronter (for a time at least).

      its been helpful for me to understand what role they play and what triggers the desire for them to front, getting to a place where i can manage my anxiety and soothe myself in high stress situations so my brain doesn't want to default to switching instead of having me problem solve has been really helpful
