YouTuber with multiple personalities disorders sets to commit suicide
A French YouTuber who suffers from multiple personality disorder is trying to end her life at a euthanasia clinic.
The content creator suffers from dissociative identity disorder, a condition formed by trauma.
“I am already in contact with the doctors.”
She added: “It’s not a debate. It’s my life. It’s a decision that I made which was difficult to take.”
She said that these included sexual abuse and moving between various foster homes.

However, Belgian doctor Yves de Locht, who Olympe approached for euthanasia, said clinics were not “euthanasia dispensers”, and that the process can last many months or years before someone can access assisted suicide services.
He dismissed the claims that talks had progressed in an interview with Le Parisien. He said that the process could take months or years, and said that Belgium was tired of being coloured as a “death ward” for France, where assisted suicide is illegal.
Doctor Yves de Locht said: “I haven’t seen her medical dossier but I’ve read her emails. She wants to meet me.
“We do not refuse to meet (people like her) but we explain to them that the process can last months or even years.
Euthanasia – withdrawing or with-holding life-preserving treatments – is legal in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany and Spain.
While Switzerland permits assisted suicide, active euthanasia is not legal.
Shanti De Corte, also 23, chose to end her life in Belgium last year, citing unbearable mental distress.
After pursuing psychiatric treatment and medication, she chose to end her life in May 2022.
