Do I Believe Her?

No, I think that Kim is faking the multiple personalities. They seem too over exaggerated and forced for me to believe that they are real. While she was Patricia and about to eat dinner, she was waiting for Judy to appear. She knew Judy would come out. I feel like if a person is aware of their personalities they would begin to heal because not knowing about them is what makes them dissociative.
