At the age of 30, I was diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder. The diagnosis was actually a blessing, as well as a curse. The blessing? It clarified, identified, and explained bewildering behaviors, irrational fears, and confounding symptoms that I'd experienced my entire life. It set things in order. Now things made sense.
