False Memory Syndrome

Many argue that there is no such thing as False Memory Syndrome. It doesn't appear in the DSM IV - the Diagnostic Manual for Psychological and Psychiatric Disorders. This is a fallacious argument. Once upon a time MPD/DID (Multiple Personality Disorder/Dissociative Identity Disorder) did not appear in the DSM. It is there now. One day False Memory Syndrome will appear in the DSM, albeit maybe under a better name. Meanwhile, people do develop "memories" of events they have never experienced and they do truly believe they have experienced these events.

Call it false memories; call it delusions, call it confabulations - it exists. A rose by any other name ....is still a rose
