orzimpotent asked:

What do you think of Dissociative Identity Disorder re: the physical differentiations between alters? Like, one alter might have allergies that the other alters don't, or glasses prescriptions that change depending on which alter is present. I've seen some accounts where one alter had some kind of heart condition that needed medication, but the other personalities didn't.

OH. HER? Answer:


A lot of researchers don’t take it seriously. I read an entire book dedicated on how most scientists dismiss it. 

There is virtually no funding towards it. 

I’ve read cases where one personality will need glasses but the other doesn’t, or how one personality will be allergic to peanuts and will literally break out into red bumps if given peanuts while the other personality could eat a whole bucket of peanuts and nothing will happen to them.

I wish it was taken seriously!
