    According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), It's estimated that 2% of people experience dissociative disorders, with women being more likely than men to be diagnosed. Because of the way Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is portrayed in the media, most people don't understand what the disorder actually entails, or how common it actually is. In this Patient Spotlight video, you'll meet Encina, who sheds light on her experience living with DID. You'll also meet Minnie, the three-year-old girl living inside Encina's body.

    49:21 For some reason that transition looks kind of inauthentic and simulated. I'm very familiar with the acting environment and it looks fraudulent to me. Sorry!

    It does look like people are acting when they have this disorder but they arent and its crazy to think about, they have many different people inside them pretty much and i wish more people knew about all of this and how real it actually is. Also big hand to her, letting everyone see her alter seemed a bit hard for her but she did it, i absolutely love this video.

    Wow. I believe that since Evil caused this condition, she is possessed. The devil rapes his children. Things like this are inflicted on children before they are able to know God. Thats why Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones, is so true.

    I kinda wish I had DID, my life is uninteresting. I have no personality, I just copy off others so they like me. These disorders always seem so interesting I tend to do a “monkey see, monkey do” sort of thing sometimes. Like I act like I have that disorder when I don’t, maybe to get a better understanding of it? I don’t know, but I love researching these sorts of things.

    I feel like as somebody who has Synesthesia, a condition that so many people call fake, I can better understand how she feels. You’re a hero and so is Minnie. Thank you so much for sharing your stories ❤️

    to explain it further, the hope aka Bruce banner has DID. he's traumas were his dad abusing and killing his mom and then he had to leave with an angry persona which became the hulk after the gamma radiation explosion that happened to him. the hulk persona was meant to help him if he ever saw any of his loved ones are abused or if he is mad. I hope this allows you to understand better!

    This video makes me realized sth about my mom. In my culture, we believe in ‘spirit possession’ but for my mom she has a belief and a child figure which is believed that a ghost child will help you with business. The figure is a place for possessing, so I can see sometimes that ghost child possessed my mom to say something or eat sth she loves to eat herself. Then I see this video I realize that this could happen to my mom as DID, but I haven’t seen her for years... idk what mom has been through but I wish I could understand her more in terms of science but not spiritual thing.

    You are so lucky, I envy you because my other is a tough Street thug, I guess he has a wicked sense of humour to atone for his sins, otherwise he drives people away for why I don't know

    I agree that once you're aware it gets easier to control.

    I digress, I found Jack to help me when I was having to fight someone every day when I was 12. I used him a lot, now he appears whenever he wants. He worked with me in a car yard when I had to do the bosses scamming of customers etc, etc. Now I think he's jealous cos he drives everyone I am close to away.
