When Rabbit Howls
About this deal
The Buffer: A Troop who stands between the others and the world to absorb and blunt stimulus that might cause pain. From the introduction on, my desire to keep an open mind was at war with skepticism. On the one hand, multiple personality is an unusual topic, to say the least, and even stranger than Sybil, this book was written by the personalities themselves--the "Troops for Truddi Chase" as they call themselves. Naturally one would not expect it to read like any ordinary book. On the other hand, a label that says "NF" with some official-looking numbers after it on the spine does not make the contents necessarily true. Sixteen: A manifestation of adolescent sexuality, created to deal with normal sexual feelings in an appropriate manner. She also looks out for the other children.
Rabbit: A voiceless child who can only scream in pain, the other Troops describe her as having "no skin." It's hinted that her name came from an incident in which the Stepfather stomped the family's pet rabbit to death in front of his children. Twelve: A twelve-year-old genius capable of explaining the Troop's mechanisms and other ponderous philosophies in plain language.Split-Personality Team: Many of the Troops have specific responsibilities. Some, such as the real estate "team", have been cooperating without knowing it. Through the course of the book they learn to communicate and work together. The Troops also describe having more than one self "up front" (operating the body) at once, and about selves who hang around and watch what's going on from "inside" while someone else is front.
I know you're comfortable telling the woman that she lives in two separate worlds, ours and reality, the latter of which I assume is your reality, too. But have you ever wondered how real your world actually is? As you sit there, you perceive things in a certain way and assume all of it is real. That's only natural; it's your frame of reference. But how can you be sure that somewhere another world doesn't truly exist wherein your reality, as you perceive it, is just as ridiculous, or at least as strange, as you perceive ours to be?" Chase chose not to integrate her identities into one integrated whole, and instead chose to welcome her parts into a cooperating team. In her book, she describes giving talks to convicted child molesters to explain her abuse history and to warn them of the psychology devastation that child abuse inflicts upon its victims.  Voices Within: The Lives Of Truddi Chase". Turner Classic Movies. 1990. Archived from the original on January 19, 2021 . Retrieved January 24, 2023.There seems to be some unwritten rule that stories about obscure illnesses, true crime and cults have to be made into really bad tv movies. I think this is a real shame. Stories such as these would make great 'real' movies, especially if they were put into competent hands. Miss Wonderful: An innocent Pollyanna young woman under the especial protection of Mean Joe, she has no knowledge of anything sexual and believes that everything is always "just lovely." She takes her name from a joke by one of Truddi's friends who teased her about behaving like a professional hostess.

Cooperation" is a term I hadn't heard before in this context. Thank you! If there is a second edition of our book, we'll certainly make note. It seems the terminology keeps changing. It's so hard to keep up. The Ingenue: Twelve is a savvy twelve-year-old genius who is able to comprehend and explain the Troops' internal mechanisms and other ponderous subjects in plain language, as well as being artistically and socially gifted. I hope this book encourages people to think about how magnificent and mysterious the human mind and spirit are, and the help people to realize what abuse and violence can truly do to a child.
