Kim was then repeatedly overdosing, under suicide watch over a dozen times, each time she was released she attempted suicide. She then developed anorexia and bulimia. In her late 20s, she saw a stable life, had a job, and one day a switch happened and landed her to another hospitalization and schizophrenia diagnosis.

Excerpts from her book

"At some point before her third birthday, Kim Nobles mind shattered, like a glass dropped on the hard floor. Shards, splinters, fragments, some tiny, some larger. No two pieces the same, as individual as snowflakes. Ten, twenty, a hundred, two hundred pieces where there was just one. And each of them a new mind, a new life to take Kim's place in the world. To protect her. At last, Kim Noble was happy. No one could hurt her now"
