Memories can be lost through the passage of time, in old age. Sometimes, however, these can be repressed as a way of coping with unfortunate circumstances. In fact, medical doctors, psychologists, and psychiatrists have treated patients who have experienced many types of lost memories due to multiple abuses.

Such is the case of author Cassie Parker, whose fourteen personalities were born from “A Need To Survive.” This book is based on her memories that were suppressed over fifty two years due to sexual, mental and physical abuse. At age fifty-nine, she was finally diagnosed with a rare form of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) after being hospitalized with severe depression and anxiety. She is aware of the personalities and calls on them to this day to deal with any stress, hurt, disappointments and drama. To her, this was a normal way to live her life.

An enlightening book, “A Need To Survive” gives readers insight into the life of a person with multiple personalities—and how author holds on to these personalities because of her need to survive the life she has been dealt. This book only covers the first half of her life. Parker is currently working on the final chapters that show her growth and knowledge God has been with her through it all. She hopes to inspire readers with her true story of faith and survival.
