Many observations , postings, opinions of caseys reactions by well respected experts. Then we have our OWN amazing posters here who sometimes CAN PUT THE SO CALLED EXPERTS TO SHAME WITH WHAT THEY RESEARCH AND POST. Variety of backgrounds, educations, thoughts on threads. I have been in the courtroom hearings, have read the blogs, and the most chilling feeling I have is to sit in the actual courtroom and see casey in front of me looking like a young teen with no reactions of sobbing, crying, shock or grief. yes , sometimes one can see anger, or eyebrows twitching, a smile a giggle . scribbling on a legal pad, folding the paper, passing notes and not seeing a reaction as to the words spoken of decomp, plant life growing thru bones and other things that make one cringe . Everyone can play doctor and give it a name. I have seen no indication of her turning into a multiple personality in front of my eyes - can she dissociate so well she is in another reality as I sit in courtroom and try and catch one flinch of omg- thats my baby they are talking about - DECOMP!! FOUND THIS ON DISSOCIATION . Some may say a lot worst title than this however she shocks me over and over again. If innocent or guilty why not reactions of grief? I heard Ashton in court and I gasped when he told his statements way back. did she???? People with dissociative disorders chronically escape their reality in involuntary, unhealthy ways ranging from suppressing memories to assuming alternate identities. The patterns of dissociative disorders usually develop as a reaction to trauma and function to keep difficult memories at bay. Up to 7 percent of the U.S. population may experience a dissociative disorder in their lifetime. Treatment for dissociative disorders may include psychotherapy, hypnosis and medication. Although the course of therapy can be difficult, many people with dissociative disorders are able to learn new ways of coping and lead healthy, productive lives. Symptoms common to all types of dissociative disorders include: * Memory loss (amnesia) of certain time periods, events and people * Mental health problems, including depression and anxiety * A sense of being detached from yourself (depersonalization) * A perception of the people and things around you as distorted and unreal (derealization) * A blurred sense of identity Each of the four major dissociative disorders is characterized by a distinct mode of dissociation. Dissociative disorder symptoms may include: * Dissociative amnesia. Memory loss that's more extensive than normal forgetfulness and can't be explained by a physical or neurological condition is the hallmark of this condition. Sudden-onset amnesia following a traumatic event, such as a car accident, happens infrequently. More commonly, conscious recall of traumatic periods, events or people in your life — especially from childhood — is simply absent from your memory.
