D.I.D +

Have been d.i.d now almost 20 years but suddenly having more changes, Trauma+1 and a lost relationship after 33yrs. Don’t know where we fit in. Can Trauma increase the amount of parts? We got freaked out and someone did something that put us in front of police but we don’t know what we did? It wasn’t illegal just one of those things that diders end up with. Doing things you don’t remember when for the most part you were ok. Now we are t as we were….

  1. Once your brain has “the gift” of being able to make parts, new trauma can make new parts over your entire life. It’s the gift that keeps on giving? 😛

    Sorry to hear you’ve been having such a rough time.

  2. Trauma definitely can increase the number of alters in a system! Every system varies on how easily “splits” happen. Sometimes it takes a LOT to make it happen, and then there’s systems (like ours) who split very easily in stressful situations.

    I’m sorry to hear that y’all have been dealing with such stress and trauma stuff, though

  3. I am so sorry to hear that you lost a relationship after so long. No matter where you are now, that is a huge and difficult change.

    Like everyone else has said, trauma can definitely increase the number of parts. I know that can be scary to think about; I hope that you are able to rest with everything that you are going through right now.
