Child Abuse From The Perspective Of The Victim - KMG Baughman Releases New Novel, 'I've Had Enough'
'I've Had Enough' is one such story. It is a true story. But this case is unlike any other true
story of abuse. The victim in this story suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder as the result of the abuse.
Thirty-four and a half years of physical, mental, verbal, sexual abuse, and even incest, beginning before age 2, caused the victim to split her mind – to create other personalities without her own knowledge - in the attempt to hide from the perpetrators who were her own family members.
"My goal in releasing this book," Baughman stated, "is to bring about awareness of mental illness and the consequences of mental illness when it goes undiagnosed and/or untreated. I want to provide an example. This book shows the victims point of view - not knowing what is happening - and the fear and anger that builds in the meantime."
In the story, Alyssa Schaeffer suffers from a lifetime of abuse. She is afraid of men in particular and becomes afraid of her own shadow. ‘I’ve Had Enough!’ will show how Alyssa lives her life in fear, as the abuse continues well into her adult life, leading up to a point where she has a mental breakdown. The book details how Alyssa is forced to commit herself to counseling to protect herself from her perpetrators and to get the answers she seeks.
This story is written in an attempt to keep not only Schaeffer's true identity, but also the identities of the perpetrators out of the public eye. It is written as it happened. It is raw. It is shocking. It is beyond belief and lies outside the boundaries of human decency.
What happens when the mind of an abused child breaks and can take no more? 'I've Had Enough!' answers that question.
"There is," Baughman continued, "a bit of everything in this book; mystery, suspense, horror, humor, romance, seduction, psychology, sadness, unpredictability and adventure. It is a roller coaster ride. There is more to come."
KMG Baughman is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at email@example.com. 'I've Had Enough!' is available at Amazon and at her website. More information is available at her website.
