Oh my god, I seriously think you've just saved me. I'm not even kidding.
I'd never heard of DID before, except maybe once in passing. I didn't know what it was. I'd heard of Schizophrenia, but I thought, "No way, I don't have that, these people are real, I'm not crazy." I've had 'room-mates' as I call them, ever since I was five, and I thought I was the only one. I'm seriously sitting here crying at the thought that I'm not the only one. So many of these things are so true for me, especially the working out one! Alan ALWAYS wants to work out. I'm laughing and crying at the same time here. There's fifteen of us here (one of them has his own account on dA and another of them is planning on getting one) and I absolutely adore every single one of them. God, please tell me there's someplace on dA where people like us can talk about this?
I'm now going to tackle you in a hug for saving me from despair. (Or maybe more than one hug lol.)
Er, sorry for the enthusiasm. I'm sure you understand. THANK YOU!
