While Kim may exhibit two or three other personalities in a given day, her body is most often inhabited by "Patricia." "I'm the main personality that's around," she says. "I'm the one that keeps the house running, pays the bills and looks after Aimee, our daughter."

"Patricia" explains that she believes whoever Kim used to be is gone forever. "Things got too much for her, so she just disappeared and we have to take over the running of the body," she says. "I believe that we were protecting her. She disappeared and she's gone to sleep."

Living with DID means sharing a household—there are different clothes, closets and toothbrushes for each personality. "I mean, I suppose I don't blame them," "Patricia" says. "They don't want to use somebody else's toothbrushes."
