I have also figured out that if the people in my life would communicate with me knowing that I was having memory loss, I might could recall some of the forgotten stuff! Unfortunately for me I never had any close loved ones who understood the memory problem and most did not give a s--t anyway.

But this is why I believe that focusing on the memory problem is more important than focusing on how different the personalities are or how many different personalities there are. I know that I can act different every time I switch into this hypnotic or semi-hypnotic state.
The amnesia is hidden to those affected because it is a lifelong condition perceived as normal. Go figure.
