it was amazing

Sometimes, our minds can't even begin to comprehend what is happening, and so to protect ourselves, a darker place is created where we can hide. But when these dark places are too deep – the damage is so severe – we can’t always find our way back out, so alternate realities take over. I can certainly see how the mind of a child so young could split (even multiple times), and how her true self left entirely. Think about recent news: Young kids being raped at 11, 12 by couches and clergymen; how most never told a soul because they were so destroyed inside from guilt. Truddi Chase was two…a toddler…and when most toddlers her age were still learning to walk and talk, she was being repeatedly raped…and the abuse didn’t end until she was 16. Yeah, I think it’s very possible to leave your mind, as I believe happened with Truddi Chase.
