    Hearing the story of Kim Noble was so inspiring and eye opening I have some sort of dissociative disorder and this taught me a lot about not only myself, but those close to me Hearing Patricia s side of the story was fascinating and makes me want to read the same book from all of her identities It was horrific and terrible the things she went through, but I was enthralled How could all these people not see it sooner Obviously, because I knew the ending to this tale I saw the Oprah document Hearing the story of Kim Noble was so inspiring and eye opening I have some sort of dissociative disorder and this taught me a lot about not only myself, but those close to me Hearing Patricia s side of the story was fascinating and makes me want to read the same book from all of her identities It was horrific and terrible the things she went through, but I was enthralled How could all these people not see it sooner Obviously, because I knew the ending to this tale I saw the Oprah documentary, which is referenced frequently I knew that Patricia would step up as the main personality, I knew Aimee was going to be fine, I knew that the art helps the identities cope.I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn what it s like growing up with DID and the effects it can have on yourself and others

    What a baffling nightmare of a life Her or should I say their story ends on a hopeful note, though Accepting the diagnosis has led to arewarding and less frightening life for all the fragments that make up Kim Noble.

    It was good but not has profound as I expected I was curious about Kim s past and exactly had created the DID but she never got to it It is still a good biography of a person dealing with this illness.

    There isn t a way to say this without sounding weird, but mental health is my element it interests me to no end, and books surrounding its various topics always manage to make it to my TBR list Ever since I discovered that some people close to me suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder, I wanted to learnabout it, and a friend suggested that I check out All of Me by Kim Noble, a book written by a DID sufferer who is at the extreme end of the scale.For those who don t know what it is There isn t a way to say this without sounding weird, but mental health is my element it interests me to no end, and books surrounding its various topics always manage to make it to my TBR list Ever since I discovered that some people close to me suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder, I wanted to learnabout it, and a friend suggested that I check out All of Me by Kim Noble, a book written by a DID sufferer who is at the extreme end of the scale.For those who don t know what it is, DID is the official name for multiple personality disorder Usually occurring when a child is frequently abused during their childhood, the mind fractures into separate personalities, protecting itself from the harsh realities of the abuse It iseasily understood if you think about it as there is only one body, but different minds go through stages of dominating it Each new personality is as real as you and me for example, the woman who wrote this book is not actually Kim Noble Kim is merely the name for the body, but she doesn t really exist anyThe woman who wrote this is called Patricia, the most dominant personality in Kim s body The majority of this is her memories of life ever since she was young the earliest memory being probably one of the first times she was out after being created.I d never measure up one mental disorder against another, as they are all horrible to suffer from However, I must admit that DID seems terrifying Imagine what it would be like to find out that there were other people sharing your body That you just switch out, and a different person comes and takes your place And that, perhaps worst of all, to the rest of the world you don t actually exist Imagine being told that It s hard to believe, but it s true The mind works in complicated ways.I m inspired by Patricia s story impressed by Kim s body s story as a whole From the beginning, I knew she had DID but to read along as Patricia was accused time and time again for things she didn t do, and to watch at her desperate attempts at getting people to believe her It was heartbreaking really but fascinating For example, the body gave birth to a girl called Aimee, but Patricia was oblivious to it throughout the pregnancy and for four months afterwards How can you not realize that you have a growing bump on your stomach Easy the body protects the personalities from realizing anything that could harm them further Certain personalities were aware of the pregnancy Bonny and Dawn especially but the others were oblivious Just like Ken, the gay man, doesn t realize that he is in a woman s body to him, he has no female features, just likes men.Now I m sure you will be wondering, well, with all those different personalities, is it safe to bring up a child Actually, yes, it is, and I genuinely believe that.Yes, there are some personalities who would not be able to look after Aimee for example, Judy, a fifteen year old herself However, the body seems to realize when it or the ones it cares about are in potential danger, and it does everything it can to stop it For example, one personality repeatedly attempted suicide but immediately after whatever was done, another personality kicked in and got the help the body needed to survive As I said earlier, the mind is a curious thing.Overall, I adored this book It was a bit repetitive, but then again, I suppose Patricia felt like parts of her life were just on an endless repeat of her telling people that she didn t do something, but never being believed Although this has taken me about two weeks to read due to the quite depressing content, it was actually a smooth read Patricia s language just flowed along, and I found myself wanting to knowabout these different personalities within Kim s body I think that if you like books about mental health and are interested in learningabout them, then this definitely should be added to your TBR list Kim Noble and all her different personalities are brave and inspiringpeople need to hear her story

    Fascinating This book is broken into two parts Part one contains a lot of details and reflections of what it was like for the author to grow up and function with this disorder before she was diagnosed I couldn t help but struggle watching the lack of understanding on the part of her parents, teachers and even trained doctors It took what seemed like forever for the author to be diagnosed and ultimately, supported Her journey through the mental health system was heart wrenching At times i Fascinating This book is broken into two parts Part one contains a lot of details and reflections of what it was like for the author to grow up and function with this disorder before she was diagnosed I couldn t help but struggle watching the lack of understanding on the part of her parents, teachers and even trained doctors It took what seemed like forever for the author to be diagnosed and ultimately, supported Her journey through the mental health system was heart wrenching At times it felt like there was no end in sight and this got to be a bit redundant Part two summarizes life for the author after diagnoses, including examples of artwork created by the author and the other individuals who share her physical body Overall, it was an interesting read

    Good but Unnecessarily Lengthy This book was fascinating for the first several chapters It was incredible to get an idea of what it s like to have DID However, I found it to be unnecessarily lengthy It was slightly frustrating to have to plow through several chapters that were essentially the same part of the story over and over with slight variations It could ve been communicatedsuccinctly That being said, I think the repetition did add a level of understanding of the author s person Good but Unnecessarily Lengthy This book was fascinating for the first several chapters It was incredible to get an idea of what it s like to have DID However, I found it to be unnecessarily lengthy It was slightly frustrating to have to plow through several chapters that were essentially the same part of the story over and over with slight variations It could ve been communicatedsuccinctly That being said, I think the repetition did add a level of understanding of the author s personal frustration I think it worth reading if DID itself is something you re curious about

    It was an interesting book written in a non writers way I found the story interesting but found it repeated some of the same things overage over where it could have referenced the previous events and reactions but it rehashed them I cannot imagine living a life like this and it s very sad that this is brought onto anyone This is one of those things that would beinteresting in a documentary format on tv or in a movie.

    This book was so eye opening for me that it s left me mostly speechless I do not believe D.I.D is common, and so I ve probably had no experience with anyone involved with something this invasive However, as a teacher, I think I may have taught a student who disassociated If anything, Kim Patricia s experience with teachers has lead me to be aempathetic teacher I do not believe I ve ever accused a student of lying and now I do not believe I ever will Reading about all of the personali This book was so eye opening for me that it s left me mostly speechless I do not believe D.I.D is common, and so I ve probably had no experience with anyone involved with something this invasive However, as a teacher, I think I may have taught a student who disassociated If anything, Kim Patricia s experience with teachers has lead me to be aempathetic teacher I do not believe I ve ever accused a student of lying and now I do not believe I ever will Reading about all of the personalities that inhabit the body of Kim Noble was fascinating I want to see their interview and viewof their artwork This book was simply fascinating and I am amazed with Patricia s ability to cope and piece together all the bits to the puzzle that is her life She s inspiring

    This was a good book It was written with a ghost writer I also have DID, but my experience has been different Patricia, the author of the book, never experiences co consciousness or hears the voices of her alters This has not been what I have gone through Reading it made me frustrated by how repetitive it was for her to have no idea what is going on I understand this is what she experienced and I too have many periods of amnesia when the other alters front, but the book was frustrating in This was a good book It was written with a ghost writer I also have DID, but my experience has been different Patricia, the author of the book, never experiences co consciousness or hears the voices of her alters This has not been what I have gone through Reading it made me frustrated by how repetitive it was for her to have no idea what is going on I understand this is what she experienced and I too have many periods of amnesia when the other alters front, but the book was frustrating in that regard Also Patricia did not experience the abuse that made her body have DID, and so the abuse was only mentioned in passing, but I feel like this is a huge important part of the story, that was just glossed over Overall it was a good memoir

    This was truly an incredible story I was first introduced to Kim Noble s story on Oprah and I was completely fascinated that she was living with over one hundred different personalities that were unaware of each other I wanted to read this book so badly that I waited three weeks to have it shipped to Australia The story follows the now dominate personality Patricia and her life story from childhood to adulthood and how she begins to acknowledge that she has DID This book is very intense and This was truly an incredible story I was first introduced to Kim Noble s story on Oprah and I was completely fascinated that she was living with over one hundred different personalities that were unaware of each other I wanted to read this book so badly that I waited three weeks to have it shipped to Australia The story follows the now dominate personality Patricia and her life story from childhood to adulthood and how she begins to acknowledge that she has DID This book is very intense and you often feel very sorry for all of the personalities of Kim Noble but I promise you that there are funny moments and you will finish the book feeling happy
