Besides her alleged non- tearing crying behavior, which appeared to me to manipulative and will not work in her favor with regard to the jury pool, Casey has now drawn even more attention to herself by claiming illness.
Yesterday she was lead away by deputies after she was seen showing one of her female attorneys, Ms. Simms, what was wrong with her hands.
Casey kept opening and closing her hands and looking at them. Ms. Simms appeared to be very concerned as she leaned over to Casey and tried to give her some helpful hints and comfort her as we can see in the photo above.
Her illness even garnered her some additional physical contact with another attorney in Baez’s office Ms. Ruiz as she placed her hand on Casey’s shoulder to comfort her.
This is obviously the only physical contact Casey received throughout the day. She certainly did not receive any of her usual touches from Baez or Mason as she has received in the past.
Not only were Baez and Mason focused on the very important jury selection process, there appeared to be some tension between Casey and Baez in my view. Baez appered very disturbed about her crying in front of the jury pool and allegedly according to the press told her to not act like a two year old .
The withdrawal of his affections may have possibly affected her greatly and added to her anxiety levels. Casey has never before seen Jose so serious faced towards her and so unresponsive. This may no doubt be upsetting her internally and having an affect on her motionally and physically.
Previously we have seen Cheney Mason continuously touch her and place his hand on her back and give her lots of attention. There has been a lot of back and forth whispering going on as he addressed her every question and concern. But in the jury selection process he has been ignoring her. He is preoccupied and completely focused on picking the right jurors for her trial.
There is no doubt that she misses the physical attention from her two male lawyers. Thus, she may have acted out in hopes that they would come to her rescue and comfort her with a physical touch. Instead, they essentially ignored her.
The only physical touch she received was when the two officers gave her physical assistance to lead her into the back room.
We can see in the above photo that Casey does look a bit pale and she is blowing out large puffs of air as she exhales through her mouth. She does this in order to oxygenate herself.
The furrowed forehead leads me to believe that Casey may very well be in some sort of physical discomfort. But that physical discomfort may have been brought about by the emotional discomfort she is feeling because of her alienation of attention from Baez and the lack of focus on her by Mason.
While Casey may very well have been crying out for attention, I believe that she may have also been having a genuine anxiety attack. With Baez and Mason focused on other things, there is no longer anyone there to coddle her emotionally. From Casey’s perspective , it may have been a huge mistake to turn away the only person who has continually shown her emotional support her own mother.
After rejecting her mother’s Mother Day visit, the one person who could now help her cope with her high anxiety levels. It is very possible that we may be seeing more of this physial manifetion of her emotional state as she has no one to turn to for attention and support. We may be seeing more and more of her physical manifestations brought about by her emotional state. There may very well be continued numbness in her hands and trouble breathing. She may very well feel light-headed and dizzy with a rapid heart beat with sharp pains in her heart as her levels of anxiety skyrocket throughout the trial. www.drlillianglass.com
