DID + Stress = worse: It is highly likely that the state you live in with did is rather stable and you do your best to keep things known, quiet, and "comfortable." illness/trauma or other unpredictable intrusions into this will tend to worsen your symptoms as it unbalances your world. Will likely stay that way unless you get professional psychological help during the crisis while you address the 'new' issue. Good luck!
