Having which I believe are DID symptoms.

Would I be able to call someone to help advise on this?

I know very little about DID I'm afraid, but there are others on here who are much more understanding. I think Midnight is right, get them to talk on here with us.

Why do you think they are having DID symptoms?

I know a few people with diagnosed DID/MPD and have put the jigsaw pieces together.

Can explain more in time, I guess I am just looking for general advise on handling it a bit better.

Mental health illnesses are so complicated.
Some have very similar symptoms and are easily
mistaken as to what the problem is.

We cannot diagnose on the forum.
This needs to be done by a professional.

There are several threads about DID.
Have a look around.

Try not to self diagnose.
It could lead you in the wrong direction.

If you're talking about helping others that have DID,it's not something a nonprofessional should be trying to diagnose or trying to fix. That can actually cause way worse problems in the long run.

It's good that you want to help but also,quite honestly, it's just not a good idea at all. Not only that but what you may think are symptoms of DID may not even be at all.
