From Associated Content: Comparing Herschel Walker's Mental Disorders, Suicide Attempts with Mine

By Autism-Dad-1

Herschel Walker has announced he has dissociative identity disorder (D.I.D.), formally known as multiple personality disorder. According to ABC news, he has just released a book, "Breaking Free". Walker explains that he has suffered for a long time and, at one point, was playing Russian roulette with a loaded gun. He has contributed some of his success to the disorder. It is a controversial disorder; some believe it is made up, just to get away with one's mistakes. Others have seen the disassociation in patients like Walker.

I have to give Walker credit for coming out and publicly sharing his story. It shows that even with a successful life of fame and fortune, mental illness can rear its ugly head. Mental Illness knows no boundaries and doesn't care who you are or what you have done in life. It is an equal opportunity disorder.
