Dear Karen.

Thank you for inspiring me to live well. After I finished reading your book I grew up in sorts. I was demanding, childish and saw myself in your story. Thank you for helping me. I had a very hard time putting your book down. Do you ever wonder what it would be like today if your alters were spared?


Dear Nancy,

Thank you for choosing to live!  I am happy to hear from you. Sometimes reading about someone else’s journey changes your own perspective on life. What was once so important turns out to be not so important after all. In truth, we all learn something new about ourselves after each experience we encounter. That is growth and maturity. I know that when I read an inspirational story, good thoughts fill me with knowledge and understanding of something other than myself. I awaken a part in me that gains nourishment, hope, and the ability to move forward.

I can’t imagine what would happen if my alters were still present as they once were. I have grown to accept that I am one woman and no longer need alter help. When my alters were a necessary part of my life, there was much confusion and alter chaos. I was depressed, suicidal, and could never envision any happiness in my future. Multiplicity is a sad life.

Since my alters are me and I am my alters, their individual parts are no longer required to come to my rescue.

Thank you for your compliments.
