  1. Psychologist: "What's unusual about this example is that his different personalities seem to be talking to each other"
    Us, who talk out loud to each other all the time and know plenty of other systems who do so as well: "Huh?"

    Also, there have been sayings of teachers who have shown movies like Split is classes to educate when it's really not something you should be using. We really need more positive representation in the media, not just for DID/OSDD, but all mental health issues
    -Nico

  2. After seeing the DID community on youtube I feel horrible for loving the movie Split. It's a great movie with great acting but it hurts the real life people living with the disease. It confirms the general public's ignorance about DID by making the character dangerous
