OUIJA – For the Record

by D. Lynn Cain

 I have not fallen off the face of the earth for the past two years.  I have been thinking (and not blogging, apparently).

After I published "Ouija for the Record", my sister had a psychotic break with reality (according to her).  She went into treatment and has struggled to understand "why" it happened.  For years, she said she didn’t remember anything. That she had blocked it all out.  I believed that it was possible for that to happen.  I guess after reading my story, it all came back to her - and more.  

About a year ago, she decided to write our story from her perspective (although her book reads suspiciously like mine).  She admitted in it that she knew what she was doing all along.  That she moved the indicator on the Ouija Board intentionally.  In trying to explain why she pretended to be God for nearly two years, she says that she was sexually abused.  I don’t know if that’s true or not and I don’t know if it would cause someone to pretend to be God and then lead a family into many dangerous situations.  

It’s been more than 40 years since we returned from Afghanistan.  

I guess I’m really tired of thinking—and talking—about it.

A Lot Can Happen in Two Years
