Multiple Personalities Support Group

    So I've been having a rough go of it for a few months. My sister/roommate and I went to see our mom a few months back. And she told me she thought it would "be better for me" if we didn't see each other for a while. Doesn't that sound like a dear john letter? It made me crazy. I mean, I seriously haven't functioned the same since. But this is the woman who sent me away to live with godparents...
