Dr. Phil re-airs: “My Husband, My Kids, and My Multiple Personalities”
Follow the live discussion on Psych Forums
Last year a person or persons with multiple personalities complained to wordpress about a post of mine that said multiple personalities don’t exist and I think I also put a link to her blog.
Therefore, I am permanently banned from PsychForums. This is what Psych Forums posts when I try to sign-in:
You have been permanently banned from this board..
Reason given for ban: Being very disrespectful to people with DID by saying it does not exist
Seems to me that Psych Forums should have said I was censored from speaking on their website because I don’t agree with them.
Dr. Phil’s website advertizement for people to be on the show. The quote below is from the Dr. Phil website.
Living with Multiple Personalities?
Are you or someone you know struggling with multiple personality disorder, otherwise known as dissociative identity disorder? Does your family not understand? Or maybe you haven’t told them about it? Are you comfortable switching between your different personalities?
Although I think multiple personalities are fabrications and a dance between therapist and client rendering them a product of therapy, to exploit patients is not OK. The show has not yet aired where I live so I wait before making further comments.
After viewing: Dr. Phil did a good job bringing reality into the show by pointing out inconsistencies in statements made by alter personalities, by showing the long, long list of medications Tracy has been on and by educating her that there are usually more than one diagnosis for a mental illness, thus suggestion and encouraging her to seek other avenues of treatment. Hopefully she will take advantage of the treatment center he offered.
