> My wife suffers from what appears to me as split personalities. My dad seems to think that she may have some "easily cured" chemical imbalance. We are both twenty-two years of age now. From age 15 to about age 18, she suffered from severe depression (clinically diagnosed) and anorexia/bulimia. She received many counseling sessions during those years, as well as medications that did not help.

James here....

It depende on what you mean by "split personalities". If you are saying she has muliple
distinct personalities this is always caused by
extream abuse.

split personalities can mean many things..I think
a consult with an excellent pdoc to get a firm dx
and course of treatment both medical and counseling is in order. What ever was done in the past did not work but this by no means indicates with the propper treatment she cannot get better.

Eating disorders (and the other things you mentioned) do not go away by taking "just" a pill
nor are they caused by "just" a Chemical imbalance.
