I Share My Body With 20 Personalities

Fourteen of whom are highly successful artists with distinct styles. It was — difficult — to accept….
And finally I could get going with my weekly meetings with Valerie
Sinason and monthly appointments with Dr. Hale at the Portman Clinic.
I was raped at 13 by Jimmy Savile in satanist ritual
A VICTIM of Jimmy Savile’s satanic abuse told yesterday of her sheer
terror as she was tied to an altar and raped by the depraved star during
a black mass.
Jimmy Savile was part of satanic ring
JIMMY SAVILE beat and raped a 12-year-old girl during a secret satanic ritual in a hospital.
The perverted star wore a hooded robe and mask as he abused the terrifi ed victim in a candle-lit basement.
He also chanted “Hail Satan” in Latin as other paedophile devil
worshippers joined in and assaulted the girl at Stoke Mandeville
Hospital in Buckinghamshire. The attack, which happened in 1975, shines a
sinister new light on the former DJ’s 54-year reign of terror.
Savile, who died aged 84 in October 2011, is now Britain’s worst sex
offender after police revealed he preyed on at least 450 victims aged
eight to 47.
The girl kept her torment hidden for nearly 20 years before finally opening up to therapist Valerie Sinason.
Dr Sinason told the Sunday Express she first spoke to the victim in
1992. “She had been a patient at Stoke Mandeville in 1975 when Savile
was a regular visitor. Dr Sinason told the Sunday Express she first
