First off, I want to break free to admit that I, too, have multiple personality disorder. I’ve struggled with this disorder all of my life. So when news broke that Herschel Walker admits in his new book “Breaking Free” that he suffers with the disorder, I felt an immediate connection to the all-star running back.
But there’s one key distinction: Everyone knows I have this disorder. No one knew Walker had it. It makes you wonder if Walker is making this crap up. You can read the story here about his book and how no one knew he has it.
“I’m probably one of his closest friends and that’s news to me,” said Frank Ros, who was captain of Georgia’s 1980 national championship team. “I knew he was working on a book but I just thought it was about football. He does 100 things at once and always has projects going on, but that blows me away.”
Now, if you were to ask one of my closest friends the same question, here is an educated guess of what he would say:
“Yeah he’s crazy. I mean, he talks to animals. He makes animal noises. But when he’s working, he’s just snarky, sarcastic and boisterous. Don’t get me wrong, he can act like a typical person, but he’s got a few people in him. Yes, it’s obvious he’s quacked.”
So how can Walker have this disorder and no one detects it, but I have it and could basically be the spokesman for the disorder? It makes no sense. If you have multiple personalities, people are going to know! I will read the book. Maybe the publisher Shida Carr, a publicist at Simon & Schuster, should send me a free copy. But Walker better have some damn medical doctor in that book or I am calling him out on The Landry Hat.
