The cause for this is known to be a very traumatic experience that the person had gone through previously and fails to cope with it, thus they dissociate themselves from the memory in order to keep their mental state in one piece. All these results from the disorder do not begin to tell of the rest of the horrors that gnaw away at the affected human. Not only will various personalities show themselves over time, symptoms become very evident through the actions of the individual. At any point, the person could experience depression, suicidal thoughts, mood swings, rituals, compulsions, headaches, amnesia, and become lost in a trance. The affected one may also steer their life in an unhealthy direction; developing eating disorders and abusing their bodies through the use of drugs and alcohol.
