    WASHINGTON - Herschel Walker doesn't sleep.

    There is too much noise in his brain. There are too many thoughts.....

    Re: Herschel Walker reveals he suffers from multiple personality disorder

    I thought DIA (multiple personalities) was debunked years ago.

    To my knowledge, people who at one time were diagnosed with MPD or DIA actually had schizophrenia, bipolar, or a combination of both.

    This may have changed recently, as I haven't been in a psychology class for about 2 years now, but as far as I know, MPD is a false diagnosis.

    I believe they call it Bi-polar now.

    Actually it is a proper diagnoses called DID (Disassociative Identity Disorder)...they say its a real diagnoses now and that there is signifigant reaearch involved in diagnosing it. Bi-polar is more mood problems where DID the person suffering from trauma will split into persoanlities that can handle the trauma.

    Don't blame Walker, he didn't make the trade. Th Cowboys & the Vikings (Mike Lynn) did.

    He was just a pawn in the trade.

    I just laugh when people call him a bust.

    Well not only that, but it wasn't Walker's fault we didn't use him to his full ability.
