I have experienced a condition similar to Dissociative identity disorder/multiple personality disorder before I was 15 ( especially between 6-12). I was like 2 distinct people/children. I was both my past self and my current self who was brainwashed by education. I was both living in the past and the present, both in Europe and in Asia, both a boy and a girl. My past self is a European boy who found himself in a strange and scary world. I was afraid of modern technology and did not like to waste anything. My current self was influenced by my education and the environment around me. I believed everyone only lives once and when we die we disappear forever. And I was very wasteful and loved science and new technology just like everyone around me. I was switching between my past and my present. When I was past self. I was frightened. I had gender dysphoria. I saved lots of plastic trash which I believed can turn into useful things. I wanted old-styled toys, clothing and household objects from Europe. I was also partly convinced that I was still my old self and still living my last life. When I was my present self. I seemed perfectly normal and happy. I had friends. I liked toys that all the other children liked. I watched tv shows just like the ones viewed by my classmates. But in a way I wasn’t myself, I was convinced by others about who I was and what I liked. I lived as everyone around me expected. Now the two personalities have combined into one which is similar to my past self. When I first realised this, I thought it was bad or useless. Later, I discovered it actually protected me. I am certain that in the place I was born, the people would not treat a person with gender dysphoria, or claim to have past life memories or have huge interest in European culture kindly even if it’s a child. By switching my personalities, I appeared normal to others and also to myself. I am not sure if all children who remember their past lives have similar experiences. From what I read about children with past life memories, they seem to remember and behave like their past self and realise they have changed in certain periods of time, and in other times, they behave just like a normal child. This is kind of similar for me. I seem to have forgotten about my past life when I was in my current self personality, and unaware of my current self or sometimes even the environment when I changed to my past self. I don't know if my experience was Dissociative identity disorder or not. When I first realised I had a problem, Dissociative identity disorder was what I thought of. This is usually caused by abuse or trauma which I do not seem to have, unless being born into a frightening and unfamiliar place or my death in last life that I have no memory of count as trauma. When I started senior high school, a teacher and some classmates asked me if something happened to me. I might have behaved like someone who experienced abuse or traumatic events. I have also thought that I was a ghost of my past self possessing/taking over someone else’s body. That was before I knew about reincarnation, and I tried to find applicable explanations. Based on my experience, I think Dissociative identity disorder might be caused by past life memories and might be cured or reduced by remembering past lives, and the same goes for gender dysphoria.
