Actually, people who have Disassociative Identity
Disorder (DID -- which is a more recent and far more
appropriate name for MPD) also have certain advantages
over the single-personality rest of us (or
'singletons' in their jokes on the matter).
And some of them refer to it as 'empowerment' ; at any
rate, the word 'sickness' is not appropriate, as it is
a most intriguing way for a human mind to cope with
something it can't comprehend.
Schizophrenia is a disease, DID is not. Just thought
I'd clear that up.
