Dr. Michelle Stevens talks about surviving a childhood of sexual abuse, the mental illness that resulted, and how common abuse is (up to 40% of women and 14% of men have been sexually abused during their childhood). She also discusses why her brain developed multiple personalities, why we cannot expect victims to come forward after abuse, and what’s it like to finally reveal this to the people in her life. Dr. Stevens also tells the story of how she met her wife on — spoiler! — a blind date 23 years ago.
