Physical symptoms are a big part of life for me with DID. Yes, I have ‘multiple personalities’, but I would say that physical symptoms such as chronic, unexplained pain, headaches and nausea have been and still remain far more distressing and life-impacting for me than the presence of parts.
I hate my body. It was there, always there, during the abuse. My mind went away but my body could not. My mind could forget.
