AnnaLynne McCord Recalls 'Upping the Ante' with BDSM Behavior: 'I Couldn't Feel Anything' (Exclusive)

“If I died doing that, I used to joke that that’d be a way to go.”

AnnaLynne McCord revealed how using BDSM to cope with her childhood abuse ended up having dire consequences on her dissociative identity disorder, the disease formerly known as multiple personality disorder.

In a sneak peek at Thursday’s episode of “The Doctors,” the former “90210” actress explained how she experimented with bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism to counter her numbness to pain, which she had previously said developed from past trauma and abuse.

“I think [BDSM] actually was all to do with pain because when I was self-harming and I could cut and feel something, finally. I discovered very early on with a partner who was quite aggressive, that my body responded chemically very well to that,” she said. “And I wanted to explore that and I went all the way down the rabbit hole with that, and I couldn’t feel anything.”

“It was like a thrill seeking thing at a certain point to up the ante to see how far I could take it,” she continued. “I always wanted to die, so if I died doing that, I used to joke that that’d be a way to go.”

Back in August, McCord detailed her dissociative identity disorder during the “Call Me Daddy” podcast, saying “You are not multiple personalities when you experience DID — you are fragmented versions of yourself. The reason that the brain splits in this regard, it’s always a protective mechanism.”

And one of the versions of herself, which she refers to as “alters,” was called “Little Anna.”

McCord said on Wednesday’s program that she was so “unkind” to her body that she had to start treatment to do “inner child work” to get “Little Anna” to trust her.

“One of my alters, she didn’t want anything to do with me because I had harmed her body. I had harmed the house she lived in for so long. How could I be the one that was going to help her? I was scary. I was a monster.”
