Does anybody else share their body with another being?

Hi iv just joined this is my first post. As part of my personality disorder I share my body with a wolf-like creature. He takes control of my body when I feel threatened or really anxious. Does anybody else share a similar experience? I feel so alienated and lonely and misunderstood and I find it incredibly hard to manage. Hoping maybe people who suffer the same could offer some advice? It would be nice to know I'm not alone
Thankyou

Thankyou so much for replying and I'm so sorry to hear how your mental health affects you.

I'm not currently getting any help because my last case worker was really horrible to me and it's put me off getting help.

His names Khan and his soul is inside my body, and I'm always scared about having an episode because he physically takes control of my body, I feel like I'm dreaming while hes out and he literally uses my body! So strangers would see my body on all fours growling and snarling -_- it's so embarrassing when I finally come back. It makes me so ashamed of who I am. He mainly wants to protect me but sometimes he gets it wrong and physically bites people:( because of this I barely ever leave the house:( I literally feel like I'm living in a cage.

I just don't know how much longer I can go on like this, hence why I joined this site hoping to get some support. Thankyou for making me feel welcome:)

that sounds so scary ,you are really brave getting this far with no support
if you are in the UK you could go to your gp and ask for a referral to a mental health team

maybe medication or therapy could help with this

you deserve help ,i am glad you joined here ,i hope you won't feel so alone now
lots of love

I'm on 3 different meds for this at the moment. I know I'd be a lot worse without them but I do need some help, I just don't want history to repeat itself cos it's a waste of time yet incredibly painful if I don't get the right person to talk to.

Thanks for your support xx

Hello. I'm glad you will. You are welcome.

One last thing, when this splitting occurs is the reactions only towards people you feel are bad or people you feel are good too?

Hi bethkhanh

Hiya I’ve just been reading your post and it’s made me feel in some way
Kind of normal that someone else feels that way. Do you get episodes x

Hiya I feel the same I used to joke about it years ago but the older I got it seemed to become worse I have a person in me not an animal it’s a man though im a tiny 5ft2 8stone woman and when I change I’m like the hulk I’m just angry crazy unpredictable strong reckless it’s scary I also change within the click of a finger daily I’m constantly up and down I have no control over anything. However I can get episodes where I’m stuck like that I’ve just come out of a 2 month one it was the hardest longest episode I’ve ever had I would love to talk about your episodes and things it might help us understand what’s going on because if I’m honest I’m totally sick now and I feel so alone like no one understands me or they don’t
Believe what I’m saying I’m stuck in my own world in my head that I can’t seem to escape x
