She actually had Pernicious Anemia. Trama La película comienza con Sybil Dorsett Sally Field como profesora suplente trabajando con un grupo de niños en un parque. Eventually 16 identities varying in age and personal traits begin to emerge. Abruptamente aparece Sybil en el agua de un pequeño lago interior del parque, con el agua hasta las rodillas y anonadada, y los niños mirándola inquietos. The ingredients were obvious - a disturbed and suggestible young woman, a grossly inadequate fame-seeking psychiatrist, and an unethical journalist. The first chapter was the immature child who tried too hard for affection using stupid, nonsensical, flowery phrases in a medical true story, pseudo or not, doesn't endear the reading public , but from the second chapter on where Schreiber begins to detail Sybil's experience with Dr Wilbur from the beginning we've been reading from a much more assured and confident writer. Rearing a family is hard work and kids never know what their parents will be like.
As such, I went in with preconceived skepticism which, according to goodreads trolls, is a mortal sin and means I have no moral right to review this book. Wilbur for analysis, there wasn't a lot of material on multiple personalities now called dissociative identity disorder. I probably would have given it 4 stars, but I made the mistake of looking up details about this woman online prior to finishing the book which really changed my feelings about the actual author and doctor involved. If this book were better written and a little quicker paced I think it could easily become one of my favourites. It's amazing that despite its exposure as a fraud e. Now I hear that it has been challenged like so many similar books , but that does not take away from its fascination.
The description of the cold water enema was very disturbing. Every time I imagine her I see her eyes with dollar signs spinning in them, like in the cartoons. These lapses were what eventually made her seek out psychiatric help. At about half the book I made the mistake of asking a professor about it and he I read this at 17, doing work training at aa psychiatric hospital and imagining that I had found out what I wanted to do.

She was unable to escape from her mother who physically, sexually, and verbally abused her — telling her she was a bad girl and making her believe that this sort of treatment was normal and happened to everyone. I know it is not in fashion to call any person evil these days, there are so many better sounding words but to me they were Evil persons torturing a small defenseless child I read this book in the mid 70s and I reread it a few times throughout the next decade or so.
Small town girl full of close-minded religion with a mother who abuses her in the most perverse ways for reasons that remained her own and a father who basically plugged his fingers in his ears to everything. It is an actor's dream and potential nightmare, a role that calls upon the player to shift voice, tone and personality on a dime. However, I had no concept of the extent or the perversity of Sybil's mother's abuse which had been the prime instigation for Sybil's dissociations. A little too clinical in the language, and a little lacking in the dramatic elements. Parece una mujer feliz con su trabajo pero pronto comienza una música y un sonido a perturbarla. I have heard some say this isn't a true story, but even if it isn't, it is still frightening.
The saddest thing about this Sybil is its place in the schedule. It's people, and all the terrible things that they can do to each other. A good book to inspire a good nature vs nurture discussion. It's amazing that despite its exposure as a fraud e. She gets an A, but the viewer's investment in the story suffers.

This book is a true story, but it reads like a science-fiction at times just because it is so so sad and horrible. I have never seen the movie but, of course, knew what I was in for when I got the book. Certainly worth a close look! But it is always battling that earlier Sybil.
