An alter this whole time (10 years)

When I think back to my dissociative episode/whatever the hell it was, sometimes I wonder if that was an alter created. If I am that alter, and the original personality went into hiding or extinguished itself way back then. But as an alter...I pretty much had no personality at first. I was blank. It was like I was just born. I dunno. I’m sorry and I know it sounds crazy, atypical. I have the memories of the original, a lot...more every day, but some things are obscure. I recognize who my family was, and friends, but every inside joke, banter, whatever, that I had with them or even in my own head was just gone. Is still gone. I hate dissociative disorder NOS which is likely what this is ultimately....I guess I just really want some input. I wish there was a definitive answer for all of this, for all of our experiences. It’s so dispiriting.

It feels like the original me, vessel, host, only comes out when I’m dreaming. There’s feelings sometimes with the memories but I feel like I have no creative, individual thoughts. When I was “born”, split, there was this voice in my head that tried to rationalize what I was perceiving, how odd I was first I was acting on adrenaline, then modeling others, pretending everything was ok, even though I didn’t know what I was doing, was just lost. Then I had these false flashbacks. I don’t know. It was freaky and I isolated myself, shut down.
