but now the funniest thing is I was just diagnosed with it. I still dont believe it but i saw myself on camera that the dr insisted I take because i argued with him. and I just dont even understand what is wrong with me...SO i went to get 4 "second opinions" and they still same the same thing. Its so annoying because I just dont understand how its possible or why I have to have this. It makes me so angry.

It would make sense for you not to realize it. Typically the personalities are unaware of each other, and the shift goes unnoticed by the person (how can one personality be aware that it wasn't functioning a moment ago? As far as the personality knows, its the only one). It typically takes a lot of therapy to not only find the "main" personality but to get the "main" personality to become aware of the other ones. having only a few extra is common (even though the diagnosis itself fairly rare) and having many is even rarer. Once the "main" personality starts to become more aware of the "triggers" that shift the personalities, it will be at least slightly easier to control. the end goal is typically to integrate the personalities. they usually become separated as a result of severe trauma in which the unconscious splits to protect the personality from experiencing the trauma. So working on the source of trauma is also imperative.
Not meaning to make assumptions, just what i remember from my psych classes *hugs*
The controversies tend to revolve around repressed memories, amnesiac barriers, and the supposed dodging of responsibilities by the client showing dissociative amnesia and blaming alters for their actions.
You aren't aware of not functioning when another part is in control, unless you are co-hosting (which is like being a passenger in your own body). However, you can suddenly be aware that you are someplace and have no memory of how you got there or what you're doing. That's a pretty good indication that you just switched.
The ability to disassociate is not always a symptom of DID.

People have been doing it since they lived in caves. It is a natural mechanism of the mind.
Most often used as a defense to trauma. But not always.
Shamans and monks for example go into a trances.Channelers and those that speak in tongues do this in a way too.
There is a lot to this subject. Many subtopics and opinions about them as well.
I found this article this week for example..
https://www.hiddenmysteries.org/conspira ... ildren.pdf
Towards the beginning they talk about how fragmenting the mind may be done on purpose to folks who have a natural ability to disassociate. There's a million opinions about the why and how of these things. But here is as good a starting point to begin the discussion and how it could relate to indigos as any I suppose. It only talks about it in part of that article unfortunately.
Of course...I want to warn that this may end up being like opening a can of worms trying to discuss this.
And that I have not experienced any of the wilder theories out there about this. I just have a few personal experiences with going into trance, meditation and so on. Have seen some strange stuff happen with other people dissociating in my life time as well.
So this topic is a very interesting one to me.
