Format: Paperback
"Fire and Water" is the story of the journey of Anna F. Thomas as she faced the trauma and torment of Multiple Personality Disorder resulting from childhood and sexual abuse. Anna tells of her anguish, horror, anger, and self hatred as a victim of childhood ritual abuse. Thomas relates how she came to realize her need to face these painful feelings to discover the truth of her past.

Thomas writes this account from a religious viewpoint and relates how a conversion experience in her childhood made it possible for her to maintain faith for healing from the ordeal of her exploitation.

After twenty years of battling despair, and loneliness Anna could no longer curb her emotions. An upsetting incident while on her job forced her to seek professional help. Suicidal thoughts and hospitalization confirmed her need for psychiatric help. Pastoral counseling and a supportive husband also helped Anna face the years of panic as she faced the reality of Dissociative Identity Disorder and multiple personalities.

Anna has drawn from the writing of her journals from the time she was diagnosed on through her years of treatment. I valued Anna's candidness and frankness in communicating her frustrations as well as the highs and lows of her illness. It is Anna's prayer that this book will be of help and encouragement to many who have experienced or are experiencing these same stages: the realization, recognition, and recovery of their disorder.

"Fire and Water" is inspirational and informational. Anna Thomas writes for the victims of childhood ritual sexual abuse, their caregivers, family, and their counselors. Her writing is clear and passionate as she offers a positive note of encouragement and hope to her readers.

There are many books on DID or Multiple Personality Disorder that are easier to follow than this one. I did finish it, I felt for the author but I never felt that she took the time to explain her story to us. I think she used the book as a means of chronicling her life to herself and that's fine. It's just not going to help either the mentally ill or anyone else understand DID or it's root causes any better and that's sad.
