DID Exists

I collect these. Basically, proof, in my opinion, that DID is a real condition. Sometimes, when I'm feeling sad and alone, I go through my bookmarks and read about the other people who have DID too.

Physical Differences Between Alters
Neurological Differences Between Alters
Structural Brain Differences in Those with DID
Arguments Against the Sociocognitive Model of DID
Places in Which DID has been Studied
India (Chiku et al., 1989) (Chaturvedi et al., 2009) (Gupta, 2005), Switzerland (Modestin, 1992), Turkey (Tukun et a.l, 1998), the Netherlands (Draijer et al., 1993) (Van der Hart et al., 2008), China (Xiao et al., 2006), the United Kingdom (Silberman et al., 1985) (Shelley, 2006) (Putnam et al., 1995), New Zealand (Barker-Collo, 2008), Norway (Knudsen et al., 1995), Israel (Somer et al., 2006) (Ginzburg et al., 2010), and Canada (Ross et al., 1991) (Horen et al., 1995). Dissociative symptoms have also been recorded in Sweden (Svedin, 2006), though Dissociative Identity Disorder was mentioned, not specified.
Here’s research that specifically compares rates of DID in Canada and China. The idea is that since the Chinese public has very little information on DID, they shouldn’t have as many people who fit the criteria and can be diagnosed with the disorder if DID follows the sociocognitive model.

Evidence for Tenant of DID: Repressed Memories (Confirmation of Abuse)
The PDF “One Brains, Two Selves" is wonderful. The PDF can’t be linked to, but the study is very much so a worthwhile read.
