Just a minor point - I have never heard of a case of MPD in which one of the
personalities was an alien or an animal or a demon etc. (maybe I've just
been lucky enough to miss them???) however I have seen plenty of accounts
of people who thought they were possessed or thought they were Christ or
an alien or an animal or whatever - so my question is - what do these people
suffer from? I would assume that it *is* some form of schizophrenia - no?
If so, it could account for the confusion.....
