This is a remarkable true story. This author, a single woman, resigns from her nursing career and adopts a severely abused child with uncontrolled behaviors. She finalizes the complicated adoption. The child and mother adopt each other as it becomes a match made in hell. They learn in this process they need to change their response with each different behavior. Many things seem backwards as the mother pushes forward. Nothing is normal. She's changing now too. Everything she's ever learned is now all backwards to her. Thus the name of this book, Me Other The, with is The Other Me backwards. The behaviors are specific personalities that later are diagnosed as Disassociative Identity Disorder, and therapy begins. The story takes you up and down the mother-daughter roller coaster ride with inspirational twists and turns. Physical evidence proves court intervention and specialized counseling is a very important tool.
