I'm trying to find an inpatient hospital in CA that specializes with dealing with people with dissociative identity disorder (also known as multiple personality)



Does anyone know how I can do this?
I tried google, but I'm really getting no luck.

It is not going to be easy to find an inpatient hospital that deals with one specific mental disorder. Maybe you could try searching for a psychiatrist that specializes in DID and ask him/her if they could recommend a treatment center for you?

Well I'm not looking for one that specializes in just that one, but has it to deal with.
I was in an inpatient hospital but they more so focused on depression, anxiety, bi polar, and stuff like that.



I feel like I need hypnosis to find out what happened to me as a child, memories are coming back to me, so I haven't taken my medication so my personalities have been getting worse, but at the same time, I want to remember. So I need to find a way to take my medication AND find out what happened to me.

I was told hypnosis doesn't work. I have the same problem. I want to know but I can only remember fractured memories.

Yeah, i've been trying to write down all the flashbacks I've been having, but it just makes another personality come out. Lol.

You can actually remember your other personality? I am shocked because most people that have this don't know they have another personality until it gets diagnosed.
I don't like writing down my flashbacks because I don't want DH to know everything I have been through and I just know he would "stumble" across them if I wrote them down.

I knew I had an angry side of me, but i didn't know it was a personality. I would lose time and next thing I know I was bleeding from cutting myself or something.
But I went into an inpatient hospital and they met other people, There was Sunny (which was my nickname as a little girl), she's a little girl that sits in the corner crying. There's D, who takes care of everyone apparently I went behind the nurses station and tried bringing people their meds and shit, lol. There's Daisy, who's some hippy chick that sits around and does art all day. There's T, who is just angry at the world and will hurt me and other people. And then me, a sex addict with an eating disorder who can't get these other people in check.



I don't remember what they do, I only know of what other people tell me, but I always just figured I was sleep walking or something, never really wanted to come to terms with there being something wrong, yenno?



But lately since being on these meds I've been actually seeing and hearing these other people, as if they're actually there. I've been seeing some of the things that has happened to me as i was young. So it's just weird. Idk what is going on with me, but these personalities are coming out in other ways instead of just being internal.

I've been looking and I can't find anything else for you.



I hope you get the help you are seeking though!
