Back when I was a kid a miniseries I watched on TV about a little girl left me unable to sleep for weeks. The child was so abused by her mother that 15 other personalities emerged as a survival mechanism. She was not aware of the other personalities. and they appeared as blackouts to her where she experienced lost of time.
Recently I read the book and it was just as horrifying, years later. The fact that it is a true story of survival, will break your heart and make you so angry that such cruel parents exist. It was a story based on Shirley Ardell Mason. Her’s was the first case of multiple personality to be analysed.
Sally Field was so talented and she did a brilliant job in this and many other roles.
