Jennifer has been feeling glum and sad for several months. She has missed important functions at school and has resorted to asking her ex-husband to look after the children for longer periods of time. In addition, she has been obsessive about getting everything right at work. This behavior is completely out of character for her, who is a hard worker and used to balancing work and family stresses.
She has three daughters. The eldest is very independent and does not need her mother’s constant attention. Jennifer never hugged her daughter or acknowledged her accomplishments. But her other three daughters were raised by her ex-husband. Now, she is trying to raise the youngest three daughters, which have been causing her stress. It is not easy raising four children, but she has tried her best to balance work and home life.
The mother-to-be has suffered the worst from the depression. Jennifer feared having a miscarriage, so she often went to the bathroom to check on the bleeding. She avoided chemicals and perfumes at work and in public, and even shifted seats on a bus when someone was wearing a perfume. She changed her beauty regime at home, and even brought some of her personal items to her parents’ house.
Jennifer is a single mother of four, who works as a registered nurse at a large hospital in Indiana. She describes herself as a high-achieving employee who is happy with her salary. But, when her new boss started her new job, she found it difficult to cope with his new ideas. She misses her old boss and prefers the way she did things. The new boss is strict and stern.
While working in a hospital, Jennifer tended to sleepwalk, and she became petrified of being awakened by the sound of a knife. This triggered sleepwalking and woke her up. Her husband even offered to check on the baby but Jennifer refused. She feared that if she did, she would hurt Maya in real life. If the situation were to turn out to be true, Jennifer would feel depressed and unable to function properly.
According to her friends, Jennifer was healthy and happy, had a new promotion at work and just returned from a romantic island getaway with her boyfriend. When she didn’t show up for work on January 24, her friends immediately recognized something was wrong. She had never missed a day of work and had never missed a call for help. She did not abuse alcohol or drugs. The mystery surrounding her disappearance was not an easy one to solve.
