Stephanie says her younger brother, Dillon, claims to have multiple personalities but that she believes he is faking his behavior to manipulate their mother to get what he wants.
“Growing up, Dillon never had any signs of mental illness,” Stephanie says. “I think my brother is selfish and lazy. I’ve never seen his tantrums, his screaming fits. I think Dillon is faking it.”

Dillon, however, says he has heard voices in his head since he was a kid. “I didn’t tell people because I didn’t think they would understand or I thought that they would be scared of me,” says Dillon, adding that he has about 20 different personalities.
Stephanie says that her brother lived with her for a year and never exhibited multiple personalities, but once he moved back with their mother, he was “suddenly mentally ill.”
