There have been many books written by and about people who have undergone horrible experiences in life. My purpose in writing this account is not to describe the atrocities that I experienced. It is to chronicle the recovery process and explain how I coped as a child, and how I am coping now, with Dissociative Identity Disorder. There are other personalities in my body. DID is very confusing and very scary. If by recording my strategies in book form, I can help even one person to deal with their own distress and either remain, or become, a functional member of society, I will consider this account a success. When I first began to put my account in book form, I thought I would group the verses together according to the feelings expressed in them. I did a few verses that way before I discovered that most of the verses portrayed a number of different feelings. As I continued compiling the manuscript I decided to include them in the order that seemed to fit them. I tried to keep them in the order they were written, but as I had already mixed them up that proved to be impossible. I tried very hard not to include any verses more than once. Please excuse me for any duplicates.
