Melissa aims to demonstrate that Dissociative Identity Disorder isn’t all a tragedy and there can be a fondness for Headmates.
What was once known as Multiple Personality Disorder is the most controversial mental health diagnosis, with even some of those within the field of psychology finding the concept of its existence to be laughable. This stigmatized condition that has been viewed with an air of psychopathy, tragedy, or fascination, though, we fight for mental health equality and respect.
While alternate identities may sound like science-fiction, perhaps, just like the skin we wear, the vulnerability for the mind to break is merely human and relatable. Though, Melissa C. Water prefers to see this, not as the mind breaking, but rather, bending, with more of us now to help each other mend.
Our System name comes from what started as a whimsical joke, “I’m dissociating into a bag of Skittles; taste the rainbow.”
Near the beginning of each episode, we play an Intro reel where you can hear the genuine speech of a few Headmates. Skittle laughs and talks with emphasis, or SpitFire bursts out angrily at seeing my reflection during a video call. This can be heard in this 18 second audio clip.
Some know Dissociative Identity Disorder as Multiple Personality Disorder. Regardless of the term, related searches indicate interest in stories about DID, or on the psychology of it. Others seek to find tests for diagnosing dissociation, or they hope for treatment.
Whatever you were looking for when you found this website, we hope to offer an educational standpoint, as well as sharing our evolving perspective on living with Headmates.
