I was recently interviewed by Urska Rubin on her podcast Captainese. Prepare for a journey into the powerful resilience of the human psyche. On this episode, we delve into the often misunderstood world of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) and how trauma can lead to the development of multiple personalities. This isn’t your everyday discussion. This episode explores the incredible phenomenon of dissociation and the manifestation of distinct personalities, each with their own tastes, likes and dislikes, that surface as a protective mechanism against pain. It’s about understanding how our minds shield us from the unimaginable.
But we’re not stopping there. We’re also looking at the blurred line between mental health and the supernatural, and I assure you, it’s not as Hollywood portrays it. We’re talking about demonic possession, the compulsion and instability caused by trauma, and even the role psychedelics can play in mental health/demon possession. We’re breaking down the myths and misconceptions, using real stories, like that of a woman who switches between 15-20 personalities a day, to illustrate the reality of living with DID.
Finally, in true Blind Exorcist tradition, we’re challenging the sensationalized portrayal of exorcisms and exploring their real-life implications. Prepare to have your perspective shifted, your knowledge deepened, and your empathy expanded. This is more than just a deep dive into DID and trauma – it’s an exploration of the extraordinary strength of the human spirit. Don’t miss it.
