Thank you so much for posting this. It can be really hard to describe DID to someone when they ask what exactly it is. I remember when I fist learned I had it (at that point I had developed five different personalities), I told a friend. We would often play and joke, and one day she mentioned it to another girl. The girl immediately said "So she has schizophrenia?" and I had no clue how to tell her what DID was.
