Author(s): Christine Peters
As a multiple personality, my body was sometimes controlled by Linda, a violent woman filled with hate and capable of murder. At other times Charlene took over. She was long-suffering and capable of during great pain without complaint. Marie, another personality, was capable of loving others, being a mother, and working as a nurse. And so it went, each personality having a limited range of emotions quite different from the others.’Today I am Christina, a whole individual in my early thirties, with a normal range of emotions, whose life, though far from perfect, is totally within my control. Yet just a few months ago I was five years old – the same age as I was when I disappeared into the room inside my mind to hide while my alter-personalities ruled my body for almost thirty years. How I disappeared and was later reborn is the subject of this book.
