She revealed that she hopes to find love one day, but Jaycee Dugard is still very much adapting to her to new life.
Held captive for 18 years, Dugard says her self-esteem was impacted.
In an except of her memoir, Freedom: My Book of Firsts, published in People Magazine, Dugard says she remembers a night when her kidnapper Philip Garrido dressed her up as doll.
‘I told him I felt ugly,' she wrote.
‘I remember he looked at me and said, “You look beautiful. Here, I will show you. Look into the mirror.”
‘When a psycho grown-up man that has kidnapped you and taken you away from everything you have known and loved forces you to “dress up” and put on makeup for his personal fantasies ... your viewpoint can change.
‘I don’t doubt that he thought I was pretty that night,’ she continued.
‘His creation. The girl he took from the bus stop. A girl he controlled and could be anything he wanted … all I saw was a very frightened girl who I didn’t even recognise with mascara running down her cheeks and the saddest face I had ever glimpsed staring back at me.’
