Marital and parental responsibilities can be enough of a challenge for two working adults. Add in one spouse who has intensifying bouts of amnesia and you have a recipe for disaster. But disaster is not an option for Annora. She grew up in an orphanage and so the preservation of her precious family is her number one commitment. But that commitment is threatened when, during marital counseling, Annora's therapist begins to recognize even more unusual and abnormal behaviors in her.
Annora was subsequently diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder, also known as Multiple Personality Disorder. But that wouldn’t stop Annora from declaring her sanity to her husband and begging him to find them a new therapist.
Go with Annora on a journey of fear and hope, love and hate, sanity and at times complete incognizance. We Are Annora is a story about the human will to survive amidst the darkness which lies deep within despondency and mental disorders
Annora reveals the complex issues of her experience in this easy-to-read story that begins with a car accident and travels through a world of horrifying challenges laced with enough hope and vision to pull her through. It seems that survival is in Annora's genes and she is anything but a coward, though she accuses herself of just that. "Maybe having alters is just a coward's way of putting my memories and emotions some place outside of me so that I don't have to feel their pain."
Perhaps, in some way, she was right.
