a cranky re-run from January 2012
I watched a TV show today on multiple personalities,or “Dissociative Identity Disorder” (DID). The guest was a woman who claimed to have 20 different personalities. She was perfectly happy with that condition, and was promoting a book about her situation, not for the “money,” but so people could get greater “understanding” about this disorder (it was the money.)Personally I think the whole idea about a person having multiple personalities is crap.
“Crap? Wadda ya mean crap?You sayin I don’t exist in here?”
“Shut up Bruno, nothing good ever happens when you show up.”
Like I was saying, I think this idea is total crap.The movie, “Sybil” made the idea of multiple personalities popular many years ago.It turns out Sybil made up all those personalities to gain attention from her psychiatrist.
“That is not true.All those different people actually lived in her head.”
“No they didn’t, Josephine, Google it; she admitted later it was all just a ruse.Now go away and play with your dolls!”
Excuse me, they interrupt all the time.
This whole idea of one person, alternating back and forth between different personalities from a truck driver, to a toddler to a girly-girl is just ridiculous.
“Hey, can I get something to eat?I’m starving.You know I can’t get anything without your help.”
“Watch your manners Billy; I’ll get some food when I am good and ready.You are such a spoiled brat.Leave me alone, I’m busy here.”
“Will you two please keep it down, I’m trying to get some sleep!”
“Look Lola, if you were not out partying all night you might get up early like the rest of us, you little slut.”
“Slut!If it were not for me you would never have any fun!”
“Just go back to sleep.I’m trying to make a point here.All your noise, you are going to wake the baby!”
Anyway, I don’t buy this “DID” crap.Some people will just do anything for attention, and psychiatrists will gladly promote the latest disorder just to make a name for themselves.
“Frig you, you dumb ass, what the hell do you know about psychiatry?”
“I know more than you, Sigmund.”
“Well maybe if you let me go to school like I wanted to I would know plenty!”
“School? Sure, you want to go to college, Lola wants to go to beauty school, Bruno wants to go to Vo Tech and drive the big rigs, Josephine and Billy will never grow up, the baby just cries all day and the rest of them have no idea what they want to do! Now all of you just LEAVE ME ALONE!
Dissociative Identity Disorder…What a load of crap!
