I have been facinated with MPD/DID for some time. My father used to work at Millcreek Psychiatric Center in Hamilton Ohio as well as Pauline Warfield Lewis Center also in Hamilton Ohio. I,ve seen a young lady in group therapy and she was the only one in the group. Now I help care for a friend who has MPD. It's a bit tough but i've learned to identify which personality is out. I treat them all as equals. She has 18 personalities that I know of at this point. Tomy is the only male and he is 11 yrs old. He was the first one created and is smart and strong. There are 6 children total and 12 adults. My friend has had a terrible childhood. Noone deserves what she has gone through. Nobody! I now have her going to doctors that understand MPD..if they have no clue about it, I have no use for them. This is about my friend and her only. I have nothing to gain from this but a good friend. I've kept up with Billy Milligan for quite sometime now. It facinates me how the mind works and what it can do to protect us in its own way. I have Billy's book, Minds of Billy Milligan and ive been trying to find The Crowded Room. From what i understand from some of the doctors is that they don't fuse them together anymore. I realized each and everyone are ceated for a reason. Thanks Vicki

I attandend Lancaster High school with Billy. Billy is a great artist and conman. Alway looking for an edge. As far as different personalities i'm skeptical. I think he's a good actor.

Yeah everyone is created for a reason. Some are specially created to commit sly, clever and horrible crimes against the good people.

While taking a graduate course in abnormal psychology, I had the chance to watched a filmed treatment session of Billy Milligan. At the beginning, I wasn't sure wat I thought of the dx of multiple personality. After watching him for a half hour during which time he presented three personalities, I found myself convinced of the dx. At this point in his treatment, it was able for the pschologist to call out a personality by name. It was the Russian, and he seemed unsured of where he was or who those in the room were and anxiously scanned the room. Facial expressions chanced as did body language. He actually looked bigger. Later in like I became an adjudicator for social security, researced and judged DD claims. It was seeing Billy though only on film that firmly convinced me of the existance of this disorder..Most of the claims I allowed were based on the anxiety it produces and the inability to work with others and to keep a acceptable schedule.

He grew up in cville, has,I believe, 35 personalities. Some are small children, some adults that have raped woman, one is a contortionist. It is a very interesting book. I too would love to see this video.
