By the way, to anyone who has heard that this isn't a real disorder: while it's true that some incompetent therapists influenced some patients to believe they had multiple personalities when they really didn't, that in no way means that there aren't people really suffering from this. Skepticism is healthy and valuable, but it must be balanced with open mindedness.
Also wondering why there was little mention of his family; his previous wife and children. I would imagine that this would be tremendous source of objectivity of this condition. I realize this book was written to understand "inside" the mind on MPD however, I would think that the family who had to endure the range of emotions and "switches" would be just as painful, confusing & difficult. There was very little acknowlegment to the family left in the wake of all these personalities. As if they were dicarded so he could begin his "healing" journey, become "well" and meet and marry someone else who accepts him!?!
Who was the father to his children? Who was the husband to his wife? where are they? How are they?
I would be very interested in reading their story.
