About this book

What is it like to live with dissociative identity disorder? In this first volume of her collected essays, Carolyn Spring writes candidly from a number of perspectives about her experiences of living with trauma-related dissociation. 'Memories of Mummy' is an evocative piece told mainly through the eyes of a child; 'Rediscovering Eden' is raw and disturbing; 'Dissociative Moments' is a profound insight into the experience of dissociation. This volume covers topics such as shame, child sexual abuse, and the complex meanings of 'madness', but finishes with a determined vision of recovery and the journey towards it.

A second volume will be published in February 2016 along with a combined paperback edition.
