Why Dissociated 'Parts' Are Not Always 'Alters'

Just last month alone I received requests for therapy from four people who came with the diagnosis of DID (dissociative identity disorder). “Who gave you the diagnosis?” I asked. “The internet,” three of them responded; the fourth person said that her previous therapist had told her.

A few years back, nobody talked openly about being in therapy, while today, the stigma of being in therapy has shifted, and being in therapy is not equated with insanity; it has stopped being a tool for shaming.

Now it means the individual is progressive, open-minded and working on their growth. But like with everything, mental issues are now mentioned so lightly that we could be going in the opposite direction.
