Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
thank you for choosing just answer. I might clarify what it is that you concerned about. Let me know if any this information is incorrect. You had contact with the woman over the Internet. In talking with you she convinced you that she has a multiple personality disorder. You may alter cell phone that you say"she has explained somehow that can only text when she sneaks away for a moment." Does this mean that she cannot use this as a telephone?
you say that you can no longer reach her on the Internet but you found out she's moved from Arizona to Ohio where according to you," I am but also is with the family where the abuse and control is." I'm having trouble understanding this sentence. Do you mean that you are also in Ohio and she is with a family that is abusive and controlling? you also say that you have had experience with other multiple personalities. You then describe the situation that she is living in which is never left alone but yet attempted suicide. How is that possible?
you mentioned that she has to see a military psychiatrist who"only prescribes drugs that he just sells" this is mean that he is a drug dealer?does this mean that he will be prescribing drugs for her?
you then say that he will not allow her to see a therapist. Why is that?does he just intend to medicate her?
She cannot use it openly no. She is never alone and we mainly communicate now thru texting when she can get a moment of seclusion. She lives in fear. I don't know exactly how she is passing it off at the moment, but it is all we have right now. This story goes so very deep. I cannot even begin to explain most of the history leading up to it but right now it is simply getting authoritative help to her. She doesn't trust anyone to protect her if she runs. This would be her 5th suicide attempt since age 9 if all is true. Her father was the first culprit. He is supposedly a policeman in AZ.
lastly you say she sleeps on the basement floor and"this story only scratches the surface" what are you leaving out?is she being abused? Is she being imprisoned against her will?
why can't you go to the police?
I have tried but she has not given me her real identity but i have been doing my own PI work and used a PI to do some further searches and i know where they live so I might be able to find out now
I have tried my county sherrif
if she is being kidnapped, held against her will and being tortured this sounds like something the FBI would handle
I tried them
I dont have enough concrete info
I just dont know what my course of action should be
I also had considerable experience working with dissociative disorders and as you well know they frequently did not tell the truth and often embellish the situation particularly if a more sociopathic personality has dominated the host body
I am aware she might not be tellng me the whole truth but it has been very consistent up to now
you have very little to go on and don't even know her name. It is not surprising that with that much lack of information you're not being taken seriously by government agencies
Im working on it
assuming i find her identity
who do I go to
if you had as much experience with dissociative disorders then you know full well that there are personalities that love to embellish and get other people involved in rescues
I know about 4 different gasl all way different
you need to use your common sense and look at it from the perspective of a law suit listening to your presentation. You never met this woman you have found out her identity indirectly and you're not sure if she's telling the truth aside from the text messages you've received. It will be hard for law officer to take you seriously
I'm sorry that's not lawsuit its law officer
Im not at the point i want to call anyone yet but I need to know what direction i should take once i have sufficient info to make any allegations
especially if she is asking for me to do something
I understand your plight and wish I could help you more but I have to be realistic and explains you why you're not getting the proper attention from the authorities that could make a difference. With more solid evidence the FBI would be the agency that would handle an interstate kidnapping of an adult with mental illness.
If she has been abducted by someone in the police force you may try the police in Ohio however since this is an interstate kidnapping they may not have jurisdiction. That is why it would make more sense to talk to the feds.
Anyone in mental health is in no position to treat this person since she isn't there, she has given consent and you would look more mentally unstable if you presented this information to them
It would not be a kidnapping. She has been with him for at least 3 years.
I have to do more detective work or see if she is ready to tell me more
the ppl she sees most assuredly do not have any idea she is MPD
that is always kept secret
I have yet to see someone with a multiple personality able to keep their mental disorders secret. And I've been practicing for 30 years
I lived with my GF for 11 years and only after experiencing it first hand with others was I able to see it after 15 years. She is now in counseling here with a psychiatrist and i am helping her to understand it.
I think you're right though you need more information before you can act . I would be glad to help you when you get more information that I think this is as far as you can go at this point. There is still a small possibility that some of his created this hoax just to see how far they can get you going. You must be aware that there is considerable public backlash towards even the concept of a multiple personality disorder and that includes the mental health professionals.
tell me about it
I will seek more info and I will be back
I have always found it fascinating that in cases of dissociative disorder all of my clients has said the original personality is dead. There are some practitioners who uses the criteria to determine whether or not someone is faking it
if you want to the question directed to me simply attach my name to it and I'll be glad to respond
