Dissociative identity disorder, previously called multiple personality disorder, is a condition characterized by the presence of two or more distinct personality states, or "alters." The disorder arises as a response to childhood trauma — each alter may have a unique name, personal history, and characteristics. To learn more about DID, we're joined by Ella, who lives with over 30 alters. They tell Eileen about their diagnosis, life with alternate personalities, and how they've used Instagram to debunk myths around DID. 
Ella is also the author of a non-fiction guide book to DID and Other Specified Dissociative Disorder (OSDD), which will be released this May through Jessica Kingsley Publishers. You can follow them on Instagram at @dissociation.info.
