Change South African law on DID

Hi there,

We are in the process of working with the best Criminologists, Psychiatrists and other professionals in our country to firstly prove that DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) exists and then to get the courts to recognize it. This will also help to change the DM5 so that DID is no longer classified as a disorder, but as a coping mechanism and that there is a normal life and even a cure.

We need your help however to do this! We need to gather all information on studies done around the world, as well as court manuscripts from all over regarding DID. There are not many such cases (court wise) in South Africa as the courts do not recognize DID at all.

We have decided to make it our personal issue to change this, and even if it takes us years, we will let the world know that having DID is not a dis-functional sickness, but that we have normal lives, jobs, responsibilities and can function in 'normal' society.

So please if there is any person out there, weather you have DID/MPD, if you are a professional on DID, if you are a lawyer, please help us to help others understand that we are also people, just like the so called 'normal' ones out there.

This will help those with DID/MPD to get justice too! When they are sexually abused, verbally abused, physically abused that they can stand up and speak out! Let's be the voice for the voiceless, for the children who are abused as we are typing this blog, lets stop the abuse and prevent them from having to develop DID/MPD and to help those having DID/MPD to heal, to stand tall, to speak out and to live life to the fullest.
