I was surprised when I read the character, I said, “My goodness, this is so human. This is so me”… what caused her to split personalities was her childhood trauma, and that’s just so true to a lot of us who are dealing with mental health issues. That she uses those personalities, and that they came to her defense as a way of survival, it just reminds me every day that we’re all surviving. We have multiple selves that come to the rescue when we need them.
