Read with Caution - Good Book though!
on November 16, 2009
I think the book gave me a new perspective on Dissociative Identity Disorder, however it can be a little tough to read and follow as it is written by Truddi Chase herself. In all honesty, I would have much preferred a professional writer to handle this, but I understand the reasoning behind Ms. Chase writing it herself. It can just be a bit confusing to read as it is written from the third-person objective and many passages are written about scenes that occurred when Truddi was not present, making one wonder how much input or writing her psychologist would have had to do himself.
Also, it can be a bit triggering for anyone who has had abuse. The passages and content discussed are very intimate and honest and those who have endured what Truddi has might struggle after reading it. I would definitely recommend reading it as there is still so much stigma and skepticism surrounding D.I.D. and it's worth taking the time to see it from the perspective of someone who has lived with it.
