Getting to Know Multiple Personality Disorder
Date:9/19/2013

Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

Author Marlene Cheng writes what’s been called an “intelligent and poetic” story of multiple personality disorder. Meaning “abandoned by God,” “The Tuareg Ladies” is an honest, emotional look at what some psychiatrists still consider a questionable diagnosis.

“The Tuareg Ladies” follows the main character Tess, through a tumultuous life of multiple personality disorder. Struggling to keep her mental illness a secret from her professional life during a time when the best solution for sufferers was an institution, Tess begins to unravel. As she strives to live her life as ordinarily (on the outside) as possible, Tess teaches readers that though she navigates her world much differently than what people perceive as normal, her world in nonetheless real.

In an era when some mental health professionals still question the validity of multiple personality disorder, Cheng thought it increasingly important to raise awareness to the disease and help dispel the myths.

“The media is making a great effort to bring awareness to mental illness. To know Tess and how she faces life day-to-day gives a face and an intimacy that can’t help but bring compassion and empathy towards people with any mental illness. People want to know,” says Cheng.

Although author Marlene Cheng doesn’t suffer from multiple personality disorder, she spent years researching and working closely with a psychiatrist to fully tell Tess’ story. “The Tuareg Ladies” started as a memoir about Cheng’s own life slowly turned into an awareness piece to pull multiple personality disorder to the forefront of media’s discussion about mental health.
