    Very, very sad :(
    So she's been diagnosed with DID - also known as Multiple Personality Disorder. A controversial diagnosis in itself, never mind in a 12 year old! Is this Laughing Jack supposed to be one of her other identities, I wonder.

    People with these disorders plus PTSD are generally victims of terrible abuse. She's a gd child. The family should be under investigation. She begged her father to get help and he did nothing? Freaking neglect, which likely could have prevented this from happening. Ffs

    Sorry. I'm angry.

    Don't be sorry. I'm with the girl's lawyer who said everyone failed her.
