Kim Noble is an accomplished artist and a mother of a 14-year-old girl. She is bubbly and vivacious. To meet her you wouldn't think anything was wrong. There's just one problem. To all extents and purposes, Kim Noble does not exist. . .
At some point before her third birthday, as a result of repeated and horrific abuse, Kim Noble's mind shattered. Her body now plays host to many different personalities. Suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) her body is occupied by a little boy who only speaks Latin, a gay man and an anorexic teenager. Some age with her body; others are stuck in time.
All of Me is a courageous memoir of a woman's quest to make sense of her life and to win back the child that she loves. It is by turns, shocking, sometimes funny and inspiring.
There has been extensive media coverage on Kim's story. Here are a few links to her appearance on This Morning with Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby as well as two articles from the Guardian.
Through therapy and in particular her art some of Kim's personalities have started to come to terms with who they are and why they have appeared. From 9th November – 2nd December Kim Noble will be in an exhibition at the Bethlem Gallery in Kent where a range of paintings by her different personalities will be displayed.
