Sybil Lifetime Movie 2009
Posted by Ivory at 7:15 PM
I watched the original movie, Sybil, and Saturday, I watched the remake. Okay, I recorded it, too, to watch again later. It was difficult to watch the first one but curiosity pushed me on. Even though I knew what to expect with this latest one, there were times I wanted to scream, a few times I needed to break something, and a few times I lost time.
The most remarkable thing about this remake is how much I can identify with Sybil's fears, reactions, and desperation. I could have been on the set, telling the director what I would do next.
The most disturbing reality for me, though, is Sybil's worry of being institutionalized. It is a constant issue, even though I have reassurances from my therapist he would never do that to me. He has also promised emphatically he will not allow anyone else to have me committed, either. My daughter assures me the same. I know I shouldn't worry...
Gettin' thru the day,
