DID vs BP vs Schiz vs ADhD

There is a difference.

People have called me schizo and asked if I have different personalities and doctors have diagnosed me with ADHD. I have BiPolar Disorder 1.

But I thought I should share some symptoms of each to show our commonalities and differences. Along with my cycle of mania and depression I share some traits with my fellow mentally ill (see italics for my symptoms). I’m sure I had more commonalities when I was younger but I was unmedicated.

Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID, formally known as multiple personality disorder)

 – 2 or more personalities with their own unique traits, name and characteristics.

 – Behavioural – impulsivity, self-destructive behaviour, self harm

 – Mood – anxiety, feeling detached from self, mood swings

 – Psychological – Altered consciousness, depression, flashbacks

 – Also common is amnesia or black outs.

Schizophrenia

 – hallucinations (hearing or seeing things that aren’t there ) and delusions (beliefs in things that aren’t true)

 – Social isolation

 Moodiness

 – Lack of feelings

 – Bizarre behaviour

 – Too much or too little sleep

  • violent outbursts
  • Cutting
  • Hypersensitivity to touch, smell, taste and sounds.

 

ADHD

  • Impulsivity
  • Over activity
  • Moodiness
  • Impatience
  • Restlessness
  • Talkativeness 
  • Inattention
  • Distractibility
  • Physical restlessness

 

What do you have? What do people think you have?
