Hi, I'm an author! and I need help with writing a character with a mental condition, similar to D.I.D. The only character I know, that has a similar condition to what I want to write is Diavolo/Diablo from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. I need the help of people that have D.I.D to make this character possible. He is only supposed to have two different personalities tho... Please help if you have any writing experience or can share anything useful to me.

      Hello! Feel free to reach out to me, we're a system of 30+ and have dreams of being a sensitivity reader for this kind of stuff! I will warn you, "only" two personalities can actually be quite rare with how the brain learns to split in response to stress in DID/OSDD, and it can very easily fall into a harmful Jekyll/Hyde stereotype.. But if necessary to your story there are ways to portray it correctly without greeting a good/bad dynamic.

        @ryce what's a sensitivity reader? Oh, and sure I'll reach out to you.

          @darkstarrynight It's someone that reads over works of media (books, TV shows, movies) to ensure that marginalized groups are being represented properly! They're also often parts of the writing process themselves when main characters are heavily marginalized or often misunderstood in some way

      I'm an individual that needs to be properly diagnosed. Because every doctor I go to gives me a different diagnosis. It's like I know I have mental disabilities but I have no clue on what. So how I try to combat my illnesses is just by staying busy. If you can help me find a doctor that can properly diagnose me and not hide who I really am so I can find my place in life then I don't have an issues being in a book. Hell make a movie if it turns out well

        @crash101 How am I supposed to help with that? I'm sure there are websites to help you. (But don't use Betterhelp).

      If you need help with a character then I can help. If you can help me get the necessary help as a person I can help you make a story. Do we have a deal

      Hey! My name is Day and I'm from a system of 6 and enjoy recreational writing so I have quite a bit of experience writing/character building. I'd love to help you out by answering any questions you have about DID and recommend resources on it for the questions I can't answer! I'm currently out for the day, but if you shoot me a DM I can answer you there, or give you my Discord tag if you have Discord. Whatever works best for you 😁

        @damon ok thank you. I will reply later as I have to sleep now but I'll DM you the basics about the character.
