Our Goal

OUR GOAL

To provide a unique environment where folks who have experienced trauma can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, and learn from each other.

ACHIEVING OUR GOAL

Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and staff. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Terms of Service are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the forums. Staff regularly monitor posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment of learning for everyone.

As a friendly and kind community, we validate each other as equally special and significant.

These forums are active and the community not too large or too small - about 400 post per day. There are many forums on different topics. The topics range in subject matter also. You are welcome to interact as you feel comfortable.

This is a safe place for members. We encourage building coping skills, learning from each other and material shared. We discourage sharing explicit memories of past abuse. We feel that processing memories be done with professionals. There are no practicing therapists on these forums. Therefore, topics that call for therapist type responses are discouraged.

Feel free to look around. Realize that, as a guest, your view of the forums is minimal. These forums are otherwise private to the public view and/or search engines.

We have literally hundreds of articles and provide workshops for everyone. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions. I am also providing a tutorial that should help with navigating our site.

The very best to you,

Jenny's Statement - Twenty-Two Faces

Post by felicity on 1/15/2013, 8:26 am

The book "Twenty-Faces" by Judy Byington tells the story of Jenny Hill and her experiences with Satanic Ritual Abuse, Mind Control, and living with Dissociative Identity Disorder. This book is being attacked right now by skeptics.

Jenny Hill has come forward and released a statement to clarify the erroneous information that has been put out to the public.

Here is her statement:

Open Letter From Jenny
Twenty-Faces

Judy and I have been close friends for 20 years. She has been my confidant and dearest friend.  She and her husband have adopted me as part of their family and I feel they are my family.  I trust Judy completely.  She listens to me when I hurt and need consolation.  Judy has given me her time, love, acceptance, money, food, bought me glasses, clothing and on occasion even provided me a place to live.

At no time has she ever tried to take advantage of me.  Without Judy's love and concern over the years I might not be alive today.

Judy has not been my therapist as they said on the Dr. Phil show.  I have a therapist at Wasatch Mental Health.  My other therapist was Dr. Weston Whatcott at the Utah State Psychiatric Hospital who was one of tha team of mental health professioanls who diagnosed me with Multiple Personality Disorder now known as Dissociative Identity Disorder.  That was ten years before I met Judy.

Early in my life I decided I wanted to have my biography written to help other victims of the horrible abuse I suffered as a child.  I asked some of my parts forward so Judy could meet them.  Last August at the request of producers at the Dr. Phil show, Judy and I taped my alters taking over.

I understand that after the Dr. Phil show aired some people may have the impression that I would not receive anything from the sale of my biography, "Twenty-Two Faces."  That is not true.

I am fully capable of making my own decisions and if I wanted to set up a bank account for monies received from the sales of my book I could and would do so.  It has been my decision not to set up an account at this time.  Judy and I haven't talked much about profits from the book because it has yet to make a profit.  I have told Judy I don't want to make money off "Twenty-Two Faces" but wish any monies I might receive to go toward helping victims of ritual abuse.  That has been the goal of both Judy and myself since we started writing the book twenty years ago.  It's not about the money.  It's about being able to help ritual abuse survivors.

Another concern has the contract I signed with Judy giving her copyright to my story.  I agreed to sign the contract knowing this was because our literary agent required Judy's and mine literary, electronic and film rights to the story in order to present the book to publishers.  I made this decision myself, knowing exactly what I was doing.  I took my time to think and pray about this and when I signed the agreement I did so of my own volition and was not manipulated into doing it.

I also want to make it clear that I have multiple personalities or DID.  Most of the time I am in complete control of myself but occationally one of my alters will take over and do something which I am not aware of.  I can't remember doing it and I can't help that.  I am moving forward with my life on day at a time and making progress.

I understand the following is a statement about me written by my sister Susan.  It is taken from my son Robert's blog on the internet:

"She has confided in me on numerous occasions that Judy Byington has manipulated and used her.  I have a recently recorded phone message from Jenny stating that she does not condone what Judy has done with her life story.  She has been repeatedly lied to and has been harassed so much by Judy that her caseworker at Wasatch Mental put a restraining order against her (Judy).  Jenny complained that she wants some help to get away from Judy so that she might tell her own version, but Judy hold the copyright to her life story, and she (Jenny) legally can't speak out...."

I cannot remember calling Susan and saying these things, nor would I even think of saying something like this.

It is common for me to get depressed.  In December I  checked myself into inpatient care and told my caseworker that no one was to know where I was including the only two people who I have regular contact with, my son Robert and Judy. 

I do not believe Judy has manipulated and used me.  I do not believe Judy has ever lied to me.  Judy has never harassed me.  I did not ask my caseworker to file a restraining order against Judy.  I do not want any help to get away from Judy.  I certainly do not want to write another version of my story.  It took Judy and myself 20 years to write "Twenty-Two Faces".  I don't want to do that again.  Judy has never said I can't speak out about my life story.  In fact, Judy encourages me to speak about it and has given me opportunities to do so.

I asked Judy to write my biography.  We wrote it together.  We outlined what was to be in each chapter and then I wrote out the the chapters.  Sometimes my alters would take over and write their feelings in the chapters.  The book was taken from those writing, those in my diaries and my writings at the Utah State Hospital.

I completely agree with my life history as it is written by Judy in the "Twenty-Two Faces."

I stated on the Dr. Phil show that it was hard for me to read the book.  And it is.  I read a little bit and then have to put it down because my childhood is very traumatic and reading about it brings back bad memories.  That doesn't mean that I don't know what's in my biography because I do. I lived it.  I helped write it.

Because of the time restraints of a TV show like Dr. Phil I didn't have the opportunity to say everything I wanted to say.

This is my statement and is made of my own free will and no one else's.

Please comment - and, if you would like - lend some supportive words for Jenny - she will receive any comments -

Speaking out is difficult for all survivors - she is so very brave - I can't imagine being in her shoes right now. She speaks for me - as one - and I admire her so.

Jenny - we are here for you, supporting you, caring, and sending you our best. Hang in there - you are speaking for us all.

I have a comment and a question.

The Comment. Felicity, thank you for finding this, I have not yet been able to finish the book, nor watch the Dr. Phil show. I have seen bits and pieces of the fight on amazon, and it made things feel really... distorted. So, thank you for finding her offical statement, I wish people would stop putting words in everyone mouths and just focus on full contexted words that DO come out of said mouth.

The Question. It said in that statement that she wanted the money to go to help support SRA/MC victims.... Is there a place out there in the world that supports survivors? If so, where can I get that information. Please and thank you.

We do here - and SMART does - as well as other organizations.

ISSTD does a lot of work - and could always use contributions. If I were going to contribute anywhere - well...here first - because, we are always so broke - lol, but ISSTD also puts their funds toward research - you could check them out.
