Books: Switching Time

Switching Time: A Doctor’s Harrowing Story of Treating a Woman with 17 Personalities by: Richard Baer

Switching Time was an amazing story of a woman with Multiple Personality Disorder who had not just one altar, but 17 accumulated over the years. Each altar had a specific job and some even stopped aging at certain times, while others aged throughout the years. Karen finally went to Dr. Baer for therapy and it took a few years before Baer even realized what exactly was wrong. Once he did, it was an even longer journey to get all the altars to trust him and merge within Karen so that they would become one whole person.
The book contains many details about the abuse that Karen survived her whole life, and a lot of the reason her altars formed, so please read with caution: Mature readers!
