9781438904719: Finding Me: Dissociative Identity Disorder from Creation To Integration

This was not meant to be a book. When I was a child I knew there was something different about me, but I didn?t know what it was. I knew it had to be a secret because if anyone found out about it, I would be trouble. I thought of it as different ?levels? of myself. I got into therapy to help my teenaged daughter. Who knew I would get help too! My therapist understood immediately when I told her that I had ?levels.? I was diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder (now known as Dissociative Identity Disorder), and learned they are called ?alters? rather than ?levels.? There are four alters: the ?Infant Center of the Universe? was a tiny baby; a ?Little Girl? who was the keeper of the secrets; ?andrew,? a preschooler who lives in the moment without thought of consequences; and the ?Shadow.? I was terrified of the ?Shadow? because I thought it wanted to kill me. My therapist suggested I get a journal to work in while we dealt with this disorder. After each session I thought hard about living with this disorder so I could convey it in a way my therapist could understand. Working on the journal was difficult and painful at times, but it became a journey to peace, understanding, and healing for me. I never intended for anyone other than my therapist to see the journal. The alters are integrated now, and we are all working together. I recently showed my journal to several doctors who were working with me, and they all told me that I needed to publish the journal as a book. They said it would be a great teaching tool, because there is nothing like it available now. So?this book is that journal, unedited and unaltered.

About the Author:

Phoenix grew up in the Midwest in the mid 20th century. While the idealized vision of that time in history is of smiling moms and happy children, this was far from the reality that Phoenix experienced. Not one adult in her young life could be trusted to treat her with love and respect, and she was abused in every way imaginable by nearly everyone in her large extended family. Phoenix was able to survive through the creation of alternate ?personalities? which shielded her from the abuse. She was vaguely aware that something was different for her than it was for others, but not until she was an adult did she come to understand the amazing power of her mind which enabled her to endure the horrors of her childhood. This book represents years of work in therapy to understand how the alternate ?personalities? functioned and to integrate them back into one unified whole. Phoenix did not intend to write a book nor does she consider herself a writer. However during a stay at the hospital she shared this work with one of the doctors. Who in turn showed it to colleagues, all of them encouraged Phoenix to publish it as a book. Phoenix eventually came to believe that, through access to her experience of the healing , others might be helped. She agreed to pursue publication. It is her hope that this book will assist those entering the mental health field in gaining an understanding of the very complex nature of Dissociative Identity Dissorder and thus be better equipped to help those they serve.
