I found this book to be quite an interesting read. It is interesting because I am amazed at how this condition, DID, fares. I mean, to have all those different persons living within one body is something that sounds like it only should be the stuff of horror or thriller movies but it exists and there are individuals in this world who have it. Now as I was reading through this book, I got the sense that people with DID are just like other people with other mental disorders. They are not monsters, they are not criminals, but that they are just persons who are “cursed” or “blessed” as some others look at it, and need our love, care, and understanding. I believe that this person(s) that wrote this book wrote it and chose to publish it to be read by all as a cry for support. I can see that she wants the world to know where she is coming from and that she is to be respected and understood as do all mentally disabled persons.
After reading this book, I urge you the reader who is reading this review of mine to make an effort to buy it for your reading list this year to support mental illness. As with all mental illnesses, this lady (who has alters of both sexes) had a rough childhood. The title character “Mouse” is their most beloved alter because she was hurt the most and was the victim of childhood abuse. If you are curious and an advocate of the mentally ill, do consider buying this book. I just got educated about DID because of it and I want to tell you it is not an easy or desirable condition. This author and her alters go through constant changing in order to get by on a normal day. They leave each other emails to help each other keep track of their daily activities. Take it from me, buy this book because it makes you understand and have compassion for those who suffer from a disease that the media seems to bad-name in their portrayals of it, making these innocent people look like criminals and monsters but not actually helping them in their personal quests to live productive, normal, and independent lives. The same can be said for all other sufferers of other mental illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar, etc. Have a great day!
I found Alternatives To A Frozen Mouse whilst browsing the Psychology and Psychiatry section on Amazon. Having read a few books by Jon Ronson, I have become really interested in brain 'abnormalities'. This memoir really appealed to me as I have not read anything about Multiple Personality Disorders, only knowing what is shown in psychological thriller like 'Split'. This great little book from A.J. Mouse (a pseudonym made up of three of ten separate identities), was a real eye opener. I was expecting her life to be a real struggle, full of constant confusion and frustration. However, although there were difficulties, she did have a fulfilling like, with good friends, a loving family and a successful career. This truthful and motivating novel, shows that there shouldn't continue to be prejudice against those with mental illness – they have the strength and capacity to do anything they choose. Very inspiring and moving.
It was beautifully written with honesty and heart. It must be so difficult and exhausting to be constantly checking your actions and behaviour to make sure it is 'normal'. Hopefully, on day we will be living in an accepting enough world that she wont have to.
