This might be a weird question, but those of you who have DID, do you often find yourselves not thinking? Like, you are so caught up in listening to your alters thoughts or conversations that you don't have a thought that is your own?

My therapist asked me the other day what I think about when I go running in the mornings. I sat there for a minute or two, really trying to remember, and that's when I realized that I wasn't thinking about anything. I was listening to my splits talking and what they were thinking about. Then I started to realize that I do that a lot... My therapist acted a little worried, like that wasn't normal. But how would she know if it was normal for someone with DID or not? Has anybody actually done research on that? Or done a study on that?

Just something to think about...


  1. I "don't think" a lot. I am only co conscience with a couple of alters. It is frustrating not to know what goes on when the others are out - I feel like I'm being left out, but it stops some of the confusion.

    Hope you don't mind, I clicked on your back link from my blog!

  2. It is frustrating not to know what goes on while you're not out! It has been better lately, but it's still frustrating all the same...

    I don't mind! I found your blog a couple of days ago and I have been reading it faithfully ever since. I'm glad you found mine.
