There aren't many public figures who have come out about their diagnoses of Dissociative Identity Disorder, but I'm considering starting a series here about those who have. Our first subject is Hershel Walker. Mr. Walker is a person in Georgia running for a political office who is a former football player. Hershel Walker authored a... Continue Reading →
