A physician’s story of dissociative identity disorder

“I had no recollection of this, but as I processed what Yael said, my response was the opposite of what one might expect—I felt tremendous relief! I was happy. My pain had a name and hopefully that meant that I could get well. I was a doctor, and I knew well that the first step toward treatment is a diagnosis. I was determined to approach DID the way I had most things in my life—medical school, marriage, mothering, and advocating for women’s health care—with passion and an intensity of purpose.”

Shelley Kolton is an obstetrician-gynecologist and author of Brain Storm: A Life in Pieces.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “A physician’s story of dissociative identity disorder.”
