    why is there no discussion of the controversy surrounding the diagnosis? especially recovered memories… doc too old or merely biased? the understanding of the basis of personality and memory and diagnosis is more interesting than this, albeit far less sensational.

    Two of the people I’m closest to in the world have DID (the now correct term for MPD) and this documentary does a really good job of showing how it can be fantastic but also incredibly scary for both the people living with it, and those around them.
