    That's actually likely very accurate. Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (c-ptsd) is common among women who experience prolonged exposure to emotional trauma.

    Hi all. I'm still days behind you but just popped in for the latest... I so wish the marriage counselor they'd gone to had advised Allison to leave. :( I'm not a mental health expert, but there are (to me) so many red flags that Gerard was emotionally abusive.

    I know full well no one can convince an abuse victim to leave a relationship - but especially in cases of emotional abuse (where mistreatment isn't overt) it can be extremely difficult for someone to see how toxic their relationship actually is.

    Instead, it seems Allison was just given a bandaid to slap on a gangrenous wound.

    3:51pm: Mr Byrne: "Were you giving much thought to your face at that time?"

    Mr Baden-Clay: "No not at all, just cross with myself for having cut myself, that's all."

    "It was probably around that time ... that I started to get concerned that she wasn't home yet, because she had that conference that she needed to go to. When I left the bathroom, I put her hot rollers on."

    Mr Byrne: "Is that something you often did?"

    Mr Baden-Clay: "Yeah ... I would often put the rollers on for her yes."

    Mr Baden-Clay said his second daughter had woken by that time and dressed for school.

    "I started getting the children ready for school and I think I texted Al," he said.

    "Actually, I think I texted her before I had all the children up. And I tried calling more than I texted."

    Mr Byrne: "What happened when you called the phone?"

    Mr Baden-Clay: "It went through to her voice mail."

    They sounded a bit panicked, Gerard says, so he tried to call a police officer he knew, but it went to an automated system so he hung up.

    My goodness, GBC makes me sick to the core..
    Why can't the Prosecution call some Gillette expert to stand as a technical consultant? There is plenty of demos showing that it is impossible to cut oneself with a modern razor. By the same token, can't they invite some professor of physics to explain why the body inquestion could in fact drift from the camp down to the Kholo bridge on a 2m tide?

    Obviously as this was his only razor, he had conveniently shaved the rest of his face before this area. Surely after cutting himself 3 times he wouldn't have continued, and it doesn't say he did, but yet he was clean shaven?

    3:54pm: The court has been shown a text message Mr Baden-Clay sent to his wife at 6.41am on April 20, 2012.

    The text message read: "Al ,getting concerned. Where are you? The app doesn't say either? H and S up now. I'm dressed and about to make lunches. Please just text me back or call! Love, G."

    Mr Baden-Clay said he tried to remain "as calm and as normal as possible" for the sake of his children.

    "I didn't give them any indication there was anything untoward at that stage," he said.

    And that is how someone like him works - manipulates people into believing his furfies.....

    His story sounds believable BECAUSE HE ACTUALLY BELIEVES IT HIMSELF.......

    Gerard says he pulled over and called his sister to ask if it was too early to call police. She said it wasn't. #badenclay


    Gerard: I still didn't want to panic. He says he tried the police 13 number. It went to a recorded message. He called 000. #badenclay

    Asking permission outside the controlled alternate nights which allowed scheduled 15minutes (only) of questions?

    Was this marriage also blessed with a Charter? Terms and Conditions?

    All seems a bit unAustralian to me. Bit beyond my understandings of the vows, (even beyond : 'obey') and ONE piece of paperwork: the Marriage Certificate.

    Hardly an organic/natural relationship (or usual response to a series of affairs discovered after many years occurrence - even with religion and a counsellor in one's back pockets)

    Is this scenario typical of the usual ebbs and flows of two reasonable married people as GBC would (at times) have us think he and Allison were as a couple?


    Requesting permission to speak to one's husband and permission to question him.... Really?

    These snippets speak volumes to me about how their marriage worked behind closed doors.

    He raised his palm to silence the three girls I recall from previous posts.

    It doesn't scream murder or suicide but it must say much to someone more experienced and learned than myself and hopefully goes some way to helping everyone who cares to know and understand what happened to Allison. And why.

    Gerard asked his sister: do you think it's too early to call the police? #badenclay
