    Excellent and quite creepy!

    I once met a boy who wasn’t caught.He deceived every doctor he talked to. Guess there was somebody standing by his side like this. He on the streets now, he is 16, still managing to escape.

    Have you watched Shutter Island?

    Thanks for sharing. :*

    Thanks for posting that short film. Strange as it may seem, I have had a real experience with someone with a very similar experience and ailment to the one portrayed in the film. Over about a ten year period, I had a close “virtual” (on line only) relationship with a person with a similar disorder. I knew my friend only as a person whose name started with “D” (similar name to the character in the movie), a person of considerable intelligence, wit, and charisma, who lived (unknown to me) not that far from where I lived. After ten years of communication and some bond (I may have – maybe – played some role in helping “D” decide not to commit suicide). As I am getting older, and kind of crossing stuff off my “bucket list,” I finally said to D, “I’d like to meet you in person.”

    D is rather elusive and highly values his privacy, but finally he agreed. With the help of some good counseling by a specialist in multiple personality disorder (now more commonly called “Dissociative Identity Disorder” or “DID” for short), D’s personality is now mostly integrated into one personality. Before we actually met, D sent me a picture to alert me that “he” is a woman, basically a “transgender person” a male personality in a woman’s body, whom I will call “J.” Although some friends of mine warned me against meeting “D/J” in person (fearing the he/she might be some kind of mentally ill killer or some such) I trusted my instincts and met her/him at a pleasant restaurant for dinner.

    Some things seem too strange to believe, but actually turn out to be true. Fortunately, “D/J” seems to be living a constructive, integrated, relatively happy life. So I just wanted to let anyone else who might be viewing this film and thinking it complete fiction; no, this kind of experience and personality really does happen.

        Your welcome. Sorry for the long delay in replying. I suffer from ADD/HD and probably senile.
