I'm extremely dubious about this whole DID thing. I know it is a legitimate syndrome but it seems to me that it is not as common as Jim may be touting.

It was previously referred to as Multiple Personality Disorder which was doubted by many specialists to be an existing complaint.

I'm sure DID exists but it seems to me it is an very extreme outcome due to repeated and SERIOUS childhood abuse usually before the age of nine.

Now we all know that there have been serious child abuse in the Family but that doesn't mean that every kid that was in the Family now suffers from DID which is what Jim would have us believe.

Don't get me wrong, some SG's may be suffering from DID and other problems such as (I think more commonly) PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder but lets leave diagnoses to the professionals.

Also I would like to publicly say that losing a member of your family to suicide or accidental overdose is not something to be laying blame about. That poor family needs all the love and support possible. To bury your child is one of the saddest things a parent can do so leave aside the judgements Jim and let these poor people grieve in peace!
