Good Times

I've been watching Sybil with Brooke. Creepy but fascinating. Can't wait for the second half of it tonight.

Fascinating, creepy, tragic, and horrifying. I wanted to cry about it after you had left, but didn't Should we watch The Elephant Man next?

It certainly got more horrifying during that second installment. Those were some brutal visuals.

I had an opportunity to meet Chris Sizemore - the "real life" person the book & movie "Three Faces of Eve" was based on at a professional conference about multiple personality many years ago when I was working in the mental health field. She was a gracious lady who spoke eloquently of her experience dealing with this complex disassociative disorder. So much of the media focuses on the more bizarre aspects of the illness, but the truth is while some people spend years in and out of psych wards with this illness, there are some very successful people in high power professions who deal with multiplicity without ever letting on to any but a few trusted family & friends. It's not all like the movie.
