D.I.D. can be explained as the idea of having fragmented identities. It occurs as a self defense mechanism to ensure the system (the physical body) can survive. Within a system there are multiple alters. An alter can range from being fully autonomous to being a 'shard'. The age of alters can be the age of the body or younger or older. Another important thing about D.I.D. is the trauma holder(s), these alters hold onto the extremely painful memories that caused or contributed to the split. D.I.D. isn't something that can be cured but managed. We're aiming to work as team.
