Now if ONLY we could make people realize not all multiple systems have D.I.D. My existence isn't a disorder, even if I wasn't originally meant to be born into this body. We suffered from vanishing twin's syndrome in the womb, boo hoo. Non-D.I.D./M.P.D. Multiple System and proud.

Notice the bolded part where I said "interrupt a person's quality of life". If it's not bothering you at all, it's not a disorder. But right now it's hard enough to get people to accept multiplicity as something that happens at all. I think any positive awareness is better than none at all or, worse, perpetuating Hollywood stereotypes.

Well spoken. I didn't mean to imply that the battle was won--simply hoping.
