Her little mind split into multiple personalities so as to be able to protect her from the trauma as it was happening. A daily ritual for her.
It is also fascinating how our brain works to try to help protect us either by fragmenting into multiple personalities, or other ways such as repressed memories, dissociation.
Unfortunately, this kind of extreme abuse is still happening, but to a greater degree. Now, there are services available to help and support those who have been, and those who are continuing to be, viciously traumatized.
Be warned this book is extremely explicate, not for children.
How sad to know that her suffering resulted in the many
Selves " Sybil " had to become to survive
