Four and Twenty is maintained and organized by a plural

Four and Twenty is not a support site. It is not intended to promote
FMS, or MPD/DID standards. Do not email us regarding plurality

graduated from college with a BA and honors, and do not see a therapist.
As a multiple group, we are the type for whom medication doesn't
work well, who don't get drunk easily, and who have a pretty good
We also participate in Pavilion
as well as being Lancer
members. We have signed In
Essence and abide by its principles. Have a nice day.
