Any woman who has been sexually assaulted will not be doing well mentally for a long time.
''- her home not being kept up. It was described as dirty by the daughter. This really stood out to the daughter as not normal. Was something happening with Echo's mental well being and she started to let things go such as cleaning her home?''
Did you read #327? He would take her car, he had keys to her house, and just walked in like he lived there. Echo told Kelsey she was afraid of him, so Kelsey decided to confront him. Kelsey told the neighbor to give the keys back to her mom's house, and don't come over unless he is invited.
Everything @gsleuth said is spot ON. But I do think he was making the mess--it seemed limited to when she came in AFTER her mom disappeared--and less like it was something Echo was doing?
This rape survivor was trapped in a dance with fear and being retraumatized by this neighbor. All the unresolved trauma comes back and changes how well you can handle aggressive, needy men. For many rape survivors, aggressive, needy men are actually paralyzing. It's hard to think when a man's needs are constant, preeminent, verbalized, and disorienting.
