That is only if Nick lived in an abusive environment. Unless Dena re-writes that his childhood sucked ass then he wouldn't.

You guys do realize D.I.D is not hereditary, right?
But the tendency towards mental illness and dealing with stress and traumatic events probably are. I don't think anyone is saying Nick has DID, just that there could be a consideration.
And according to WebMD
, the drug/alcohol use could be a contributing factor. Or, that use could be a coping mechanism.
"research indicates that a combination of environmental and biological factors work together to cause it. As many as 98% to 99% of individuals who develop dissociative disorders have recognized personal histories of recurring, overpowering, and often life-threatening disturbances at a sensitive developmental stage of childhood (usually before age 9). Dissociation may also happen when there has been insistent neglect or emotional abuse, even when there has been no overt physical or sexual abuse. Findings show that in families where parents are frightening and unpredictable, the children may become dissociative."
Damn, I'm doing the wrong research! I need to be working on my lesson plans, LOL
