The mind is a very intricate and very fragile part of the human body and it doesn't take very much to make the mind break or fracture into pieces. This is what happened to Joseph Wheeler, his mind fractured into several different pieces and those pieces in turn changed into several different personalities. We will examine Mr. Wheeler and see if we can't put his mind back together before it is to late...
The first time I met Joseph Wheeler he had been committed to the psychiatric ward at the Domino Hospital and he was in an almost catatonic state. He couldn't talk or wouldn't talk to me and so I had to try to figure out what was happening to him.
The only thing I had to go on was that he had been arrested for trying to beat a man to death with his bear hands and when he was confronted by the Police he was very combative and had to be physically restrained and that is what caused him to snap and he just went down and now he is in the condition he is in now.
The first thing I had to do was to try to find out if he had any relatives that I could talk to along with any friends. I started by talking to the Police and I found out where his father lived but when I went to talk to him I found out that he had moved suddenly, but I also found out where some of Joseph's friends lived and after I talked to them well I got a better picture as to what happened to make him go off the deep end.
I talked to most of his friends and as they told me about what they had observed it made me think that this young man might be suffering from Schizophrenia which caused him to split off from reality and that caused him to have multiple personality syndrome. If it isn't caught then the person can be lost in the middle of all the chaos caused from this medical condition.
Everyday I would go and sit and wait for him to talk to me and after what seemed to be a life time he opened his eyes and looked at me and he asked "Where am I and who are you?"
I got up and walked over to the bed and I asked him "What do you remember last?"
Joseph closed his eyes and he said "The last thing I remember is my dad hitting me with his belt as he yelled that I was a no good piece of shit that should of died when I was born."
I asked him "How old were you then?"
He gave me this weird look and he said "Hell I was only thirteen, why do you want to know that for?"
I then said "Joseph you're now seventeen and for some reason you've lost almost four years of your life and we have to try to discover what happened to you those years you've lost."
Joseph then started to cry and then all of a sudden he stopped crying and he sat up and he said "Why can't you leave him alone, hasn't he been through enough hell."
I knew that this was one of his personalities and I said "What's your name?"
"My name is Shawn, who the hell are you?" He said.
I told him "My name is Dr. Phillip Chester and I'm here to try to help Joseph get better and try to figure out what happened that caused his mind to fracture and he needs to find out how to get his life back."
Then all of a sudden a different voice said "Why, why can't you just leave him alone?"
I then said "Because I know that he'd want to find his way back to reality and to regain his life."
Then all of a sudden Joseph's voice came out and he said "What's happening to me and why don't I remember what happened. Please help me."
I told him "The first thing that I have to do is figure out how many personalities are inside you and then I have to talk to each of them one by one and get them to understand that you want to have your life back, and it won't be easy but if you're willing to give it a try then I'll be here to help you along the way."
Joseph then reached out his hand to me and he said "Please help me, I want to be me again."
I told him that the first thing that he had to understand is that I would have to hypnotize him and that way I could get in touch with all the people that are inside his mind and that this could be dangerous because if one of the people didn't want to cooperate that could put a halt to me discovering what really happened and then it would be the end of everything."
Joseph looked at me and then he said "Can I think about this, because it really scares the hell out of me."
I told him "You can have all the time you need, but if you do decide to go along with this then let me know."
I then left the room and as I walked back to my Office I wondered if this was going to be productive or would it all be a waste of time.
Back inside the room, Joseph must be so terrified and if I were him I'd be scared too. I pray that if he does decide to let me help him that I could help him get back his life. I just had to wait and see.
