Huh: Herschel Walker Had Dissociative Identity Disorder; Had a Dozen Different Personalities

None of those personalities, alas, were that of Professional Footballer Living Up to His Heismann Hype.

Okay that was uncalled for, but then, I had to fucking watch the New Jersey Generals, so I'm owed.

Anyway:

In a "Nightline" interview that will air Monday on ABC, the 46-year-old Walker said he has been in treatment for eight years and believes the disorder is under control, adding that writing the book was therapeutic for him.ot clear at what point in his life Walker believes he had the disorder.

...

After his retirement from football in 1997, Walker said the disorder began to overwhelm him. At one point, while sitting in his kitchen, he said he played Russian roulette with a loaded pistol.

"To challenge death like I was doing, you start saying, there's a problem here," Walker told Woodruff.

...

Walker and his ex-wife, Cindy Grossman, were married for 16 years before she knew about his illness, she said.

"Well, now it makes perfect sense, because each personality has a different interest," Grossman told "Nightline". "This one has an interest in ballet, this one has an interest in the Marines, this one had an interest [in the] FBI, this one had an interest in sports.

"There was also a very sweet, lovable [personality]. That's the one he told me I married. He told me I didn't marry Herschel," said Grossman, who later in the interview recalled a conversation with Walker, "and the next thing I knew, he just kind of raged and he got a gun and put it to my temple."

That was the personality with an interest in Sandwich and Shut-Up.

Thanks to blacksheep.
