Rona Lee's insight:

Dissociative identity disorder (DID), known previously as multiple personality disorder, is not a real disorder.
At least, that’s what you might’ve heard in the media, and even from some mental health professionals.
DID is arguably one of the most misunderstood and controversial diagnoses in the current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
But it is a real and debilitating disorder that makes it difficult for people to function.
This article shows 7 common DID Myths.
Regardless of the controversy, dissociative identity disorder is a real disorder that disrupts people’s lives. But there is hope and help.
I chose this article because that I think its very important to show people the truth about DID.

How to recognize danger in the workplace and at school

How to recognize danger in the workplace and at school | Multiple Personality Disorder | Scoop.it
Shocking acts of public violence continue to dominate the news: Shootings at Fort Hood and the Washington Navy Yard – considered workplace incidents, a stabbing at a Pennsylvania high school.
Rona Lee's insight:

I chose to share this article because I didnt know that a common denominator of workplace violence is untreated mental illness.
The book "“It’s Just My Opinion", has been written by retired physician Mohinder Goomar.
Goomar, who has personally suffered the destabilizing affects of dissociative identity disorder (DID), reviews indicators of mental illness, which may lead to violence.
Goomar's book details his experience with DID.
Goomar said “Because diagnosis and treatment of mental illness hasn’t progressed much in recent decades, we need to encourage lay people to be vigilant toward those expressing tendencies that indicate the potential for violence due to mental illness.”
And I agree with his saying.

A History of Dissociative Identity Disorder

Rona Lee's insight:

I always thought that DID is a new mental illness.
This article shows that multiple personality is not a new development of the twentieth century.
In the begining of the eighteenth century, lots of detailed accounts in terms of multiple personality being a mental condition began appearing.
Although, Eberhardt Gmelin is sometimes credited as being the first to report a case of multiple personality.
There are reports of an earlier account by Paracelsus who wrote of a woman who had amnesia about an alter personality who stole her money in 1646.
Amazing!

Dʀ. Jᴇᴋʏʟʟ ᴀɴᴅ Mʀ. Hʏᴅᴇ (2008) - YouTube

Rona Lee's insight:

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, or simply Jekyll & Hyde.
The movie has been published in 2008.
It is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde.
I chose to share this movie because I can not make a research about "multiple personality disorder", without mention it.
The movie is commonly associated with the rare mental condition often spuriously called "split personality", referred to in psychiatry as dissociative identity disorder, where within the same body there exists more than one distinct personality.
In this case, there are two personalities within Dr Jekyll, one apparently good and the other evil; completely opposite levels of morality.
The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the very phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next.'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr.Hyde' is a thrilling Gothic horror novel.
I really recomend watching the movie!

Sybil 2007 remake part 1 of 8 - YouTube

Rona Lee's insight:

I read the book "Sybil" a few years ago.
The book is a record of a woman who has DID.
Sybil had 16 alter egos and did a long way to become one.
Until now, I didnt know that there is a movie about the book.
I recomend to watch it or even better - read the book!
It's so outstanding and incredible!
I wanted to publish a link to the movie, because I know that this days, not so many people have time or want to read books.

I was very surprised to read about the key finding - that genes are so influential in the development of personality disorders.

Summary and Review: The Three Faces of Eve

The Three Faces of Eve was a movie released in 1957 about a young woman with multiple personality disorder. It chronicles her diagnosis and treatment over a five year time span.
Rona Lee's insight:

This is a review of a movie called - "The Three Faces of Eve."
The movie was released in 1957 and is based on a book of the same title by Corbett H. Thigpen, MD and Hervey M. Cleckley, M.D. The book is a biography of a woman suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD). Nunnally Johnson wrote the screenplay, as well as produced and directed the movie.

The insight that I have gained from this content is that I really wanna watch this movie!
