Multiple Personality Stories

The story isn't only the story but who is allowed to tell it. - Howard Bryant

We have dropped most mainstream media accounts of multiplicity due to the overwhelming amount of negative portrayals. Some of these are very patronizing and must seem insulting even to people who have classic, Sybil-like MPD/DID. Instead, this section is now devoted to accounts of personal experience. We need to tell our own stories, not have our words sliced, diced and served up on a psychiatric platter by some third-rate hack of a so-called journalist who thinks "verification" means "see what the other newspapers are reporting."

If you want to read and hear some of the early accounts of multiple personality disorder/ dissociative identity disorder as they appeared in newspapers, magazines and on television and radio, you can find them on Early Accounts.

This is not a place for abuse histories or narratives. (The best support sites we know are Many Voices, Rainn and Survivors of Incest Anonymous: if you were abused by clergy, go to Snap.) We are calling for accounts of your personal experiences as multiples, as persons who share a physical body. What do you see, hear, smell, taste? Do you co-run? Do you have a "peanut gallery"? Where do you go when you're not up front? What is your own world like? Can you describe it? Everyone has something different. Some people have no subjective world at all. What must that be like? Please send us your stories by filling out our email form. HTML not required, and you can be anonymous. Just send your text.

Amorpha's Coming Out Plural Amorpha invite you to use their anonymous mail form to tell your stories about coming out, or wanting to. Break the silence and speak your truth! Help out both singlets and other plurals by telling us your experiences, tips, and suggestions for coming out.

And we've been working on this off and on with various groups for about ten years...
