Actress AnnaLynne McCord recently revealed that she has been diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (DID), formerly referred to as multiple personality disorder. She explains how the disorder has affected her behavior.
“The alter that I lived most in was this hard, tough – I would wear a black wig because I was trying to put off this tough exterior to the world,” McCord says.
