Jessica had always been haunted by the fear that the unthinkable had happened when she had been a€œmade-up.a€ For as far back as she could remember, she had no sense of a Self. Her mother thought of her as the a€œperfect infanta€ because a€œshe never wanted anything and she never needed anything.a€ As a child, just thinking of saying a€œI needa€ or a€œI wanta€ left her feeling like an empty shell and that her mind was about to spin out of control. Terrified of whoa€“a€“or whata€“a€“she was, she lived in constant dread over being found guilty of impersonating a human being. Jeffrey Von Glahn, Ph.D., an experienced therapist with an unshakable belief in the healing powers of the human spirit, and Jessica blaze a trail into this unexplored territory. As if she has, in fact, become an infant again, Jessica remembers in extraordinary detail events from the earliest days of her lifea€“a€“events that threatened to twist her embryonic humanness from its natural course of development. Her recollections are like listening to an infant who could talk describe every psychologically dramatic moment of its life as it was happening. When Dr. Von Glahn met Jessica, she was 23. Everyone regarded her as a responsible, caring person a€“ except that she never drove and she stayed at her mothera€™s when her husband worked nights. For many months, Jessicaa€™s therapy was stuck in an impasse. Dr. Von Glahn had absolutely no idea that she was so terrified over simply talking about herself. In hopes of breakthrough, she boldly asked for four hours of therapy a day, for three days a week, for six weeks. The mystery that was Jessica cracked open in dramatic fashion, and in a way that Dr. Von Glahn could never have imagined. Then she asked for four days a week a€“ and for however long it took. In the following months, her electrifying journey into her mystifying past brought her ever closer to a final confrontation with the events that had threatened to forever strip her of her basic humanness.Once seated in my car, I gently nudged the recorder under the front seat. ...
