Ruth Dee. Imagine what it would be like if your thoughts weren’t the only ones in your head.

At first, it appeared as if it were empty, but after looking at it more closely, I saw an arm resting out of the opened driver’s window. My heart rate increased. Act like you don’t see him.

The book gives guidelines to the reader first observation and then translating them into paper. You know that manga faces are different from those of regular, American-style comic book characters.

Ruth Dee is one of the most extraordinary people you will ever meet. She is 50 years old, and was for 30 years a respected teacher and educational manager. She is married with three grown children. But ever since she was four years old, Ruth has lived with other people in her head. Ruth isn't certain when the sexual abuse started but her first memories are of being assualted by her grandfather, so it was certainly happening by the time she was four. Her response to the massive trauma was to detach herself from it completely. Unconsciously, she invented an alter ego to take her place and take her pain. The technique was so successful that she continued to invent personalities to deal with anything stressful that happened to her. And a lot of awful things happened. Her father abused her too; her mother was severely mentally ill, and for years, as the personalities inside her mind multiplied, Ruth was terrifed that she too was mad. On the outside, Ruth grew up to be a successful adult, but inside, all was chaos. Eventually she could no longer cope and she suffered a breakdown. Since then she has learned how to manage her condition and these days she works with research psychologists to increase the understanding and treatment of Multiple Personality Disorder.

An in depth, realistic view of what it's like to live with MPD. Well written and presented. A voice for all abused children. Very thought provoking.

The horrible abuse this woman suffered was incredible. The strength it took to live her life is inspiring. Good read.

This book was an amazing read. Ruth manages to suppress all her mental health issues, and her past of horrific abuse until it finally all gets too much when she is around 50.

She describes well her many coping mechanisms at work, and at home, and the shock of her colleagues and staff when she tells them she is taking sick leave from work to be admitted to a mental health unit as an inpatient... to me this shows just how effective dissociation is in allowing someone to 'keep up a front' for short periods of time whilst privately falling apart... dissociation is a true defense mechanisms.

The book is intelligently written and well explained, and quite unlike most accounts of mental health issues which I have read. I plan to read it again soon.
