I disagree that treatment for this illness is simple. I would venture to say that DID is one of the most complex mental health issues due to its deeply rooted trauma, memory loss, etc. I do not think saying it is simple is the way to go. (I dont mean any disrespect)
involves memory loss/ amnesia.

Once the significant others understand this main fact, the communication problems, that DID/MPD or any other type of dissociative disorder cause, can be resolved immediately! Then the patient will not have to worry about the weirdness of this.

This one issue could have made me feel safe!
Resolved immediately? I am not saying that someone with DID can't be happy or have a fulfilling life but I will say that the difficulties experienced could be considered "chronic or life-long". I am not an expert on this but as far as I know there are no cures available for most mental illnesses, especially DID.
