How to deal with split personality disorder

Split personality disorder, also known as Schizophrenia or dissociative identity disorder, is one of the major types of mental disorder that typically occurs during childhood. This mental disorder is actually characterized by the disintegration of thinking as well as responding in an emotional manner. Many scientists define split personality disorder as a severe mental illness. According to the recent statistical reports, a lot of people suffer from split personality disorder. The main tools that are used for diagnosing the split personality disorder are one’s behavior and experiences. There are many different factors that are responsible for the occurrence of split personality disorder and they are environment, social matters, genetics, neurobiology, psychology, prenatal, substance abuse, prescriptions and recreational drugs.

What is split personality disorder?

Split personality disorder actually refers to the adaptive response of an individual towards a maladaptive environment. This kind of mental disorder also leads to the development of mental splitting and thus, brings a drastic change in the behavior and experiences of an individual. People who suffer from such kind of mental disorders force themselves to handle such traumatic situations and they also try to dissociate themselves from their occurrence on earth. Split personality disorder also causes an individual to compartmentalize their behavior as well as experiences. If you are suffering from split mental disorder, then you will be forced to participate into several intolerable activities but you will try to maintain a separate sense of yourself in mind that you are safely secluded away from danger. This kind of mental illness generally occurs during childhood when small children are forced to severe and sadistic abusive activities.

Symptoms of split personality disorder    

There are certain symptoms of split personality disorder or dissociative identity disorder. Some of the major symptoms of this kind of mental illness include amnesia, distorted perception and anxiety. Amnesia is one of the major symptoms of split personality disorder. It is a fact that multiple personalities cannot talk to each other. In case of amnesia, an individual develops multiple personalities and this leads to a drastic change in this behavior. If a person is suffering from Schizophrenia, then one personality tries to go for sleep whereas the other personality tries to cope up with stress and danger. This mental illness may also lead to instant memory loss. If any person complains about memory loss during high stress times, then it is possible that he might be suffering from split personality disorder.

Anxiety is also a major symptom of dissociative disorder. If an individual is suffering from such kind of mental illness, then he is likely to face situations like anxiety, depression or detachment. He might also develop a thinking that something is not functioning properly in his mind. They start feeling that they are having a partial control over their actions. These types of feelings or senses can cause them to get detached from lives.

Distorted perception is another important symptom of split personality disorder. A person who is suffering from split personality disorder may start to feel detached from life as well as surroundings. Such type of feelings can cause them to live in an imaginary world. Distorted perception can change the behavior as well as experiences of an individual. People with split personality disorder also start questioning to themselves about what is real and what isn’t.

According to the psychotherapists and medical heath care professionals, the overall treatment process of split personality disorder is long and complex.

Treatment of split personality disorder        

Treatment of dissociative mental disorder is pretty difficult due to a number of reasons.

I can’t sleep with that honking big light over me since Alvin says texting at night without adequate light is bad for his eyes…. YEA RIGHT! Lack of SLEEP is bad for your daily function as well! Ellie and Theo are done preparing the MEAL as they call it. Can’t wait to try it… XD

    A good article. The loss of loved ones is a great blow. It takes much time for some people to come out of it. But you should express your grief by some reactions to over come it more easily. When express your grief, your heart will feel some lightness and will not affect your health conditions deep. If you do not express your grief, then it will remain stuck in your heart and make you sick both mentally and physically. People close and near to the grief stricken should also try to console them so that they out cry and feel themselves light with the feeling and satisfaction that there are others who care for him/her in bad times. This gives the grieved person security and confidence and slowly helps to recover himself/herselp.

    A good article on how to deal with inferiority complex. Inferiority arises when you compare with others. Added to that, the lack of self confidence and stage fear make it more difficult to deal with. This problem of inferiority arises when you constantly fail in your assignments, whenever your parents and friends make discouraging comments like ” you are not fit for anything” or “your friends and class mates are more better than you”, etc. and many more reasons. So, first thing you should do is to stop comparing yourself with others. Then, you develop some boldness. Let others say what they say. ignore their comments. Try to understand the weaknesses in you and their reasons. Slowly develop over coming those weaknesses one by one. One more thing is you should not get bewildered at failures. You must see some positive aspects in your failures. Every failure is a step to your success. So go on making effort again and again.

    A very good post. Very useful tips to over come inferiority complex. Basically this complex arises out of stage fear and lack of confidence. This may be due to recurring failures. When a person fails in some attempt, he gets discouraged. When discouraged, he lacks inspiration to make another attempt because of the fear of failing again. He is afraid of the others surrounding him who may comment with disrespect for him. In such circumstances, he needs people who can boost his spirit. He needs the support of encouraging words building some confidence in him. Parents, siblings and friends can give support in such circumstances as they are closely related to him. But, more often, the problem is that they may not be having any hint of his problem as the victim keeps himself aloof from them and don’t let them know his problem. Even in such circumstances, they should come to know that he is having some problem due to which he is keeping aloof from them. So, that way, they can be able to know about his having problem and try to make him more inter-active with them by giving company to him and try to solve his problem.

    A very good and healthy article. “Let Go” and “Let it Be”. Very well said. We must learn to let it go. Only then, one could be happy. If you cling on to it, it will keep on torturing you. One day will come when you end broke-out. So, better let it go and enjoy your present life peacefully. What happens, let it happen and don’t fight if it does not happen your way. You simply keep up your work neat and clean which is in your hands. Enjoy the life smiling away.

    I will suggest you, you could try using cold milk mix with almond oil…gently dab it around your face to reduce facial redness…or a cold tea bag would also be nice, the “tanin” would act as natural astringent and moisturizer for the skin… Drink lots of water and stay away from the sun.

    Aloe vera is a miracle plant. Massage you face with aloe vera gel for 2-3 minutes and leave it for 15 minutes, than rinse off. It will make your skin glowing and you easily get rid of facial redness from your face.
