NOTHING shown on Days of our lives in terms of Abby's mental issues is close to anything in real life. Her DID and I use that term lightly is a joke. Doctors and other mental health care workers who have assessed this story all agree on one thing, it's not REAL. Trying to make fans feel guilty because they don't like Abby and buy into the excuses her family and associates make for her is not fair. I don't believe anyone here would make fun of or heavily criticize a real person dealing with a real mental issue. My opinions of Abby are based on what I see on my television and not what is happening to a real person.
AMEN! Preach! I hate Abby. I have always and will alway hate Abby and I refuse to allow anyone to guilt me into changing my mind! Her alters aren't responsible and aren't real when it comes to certain things, yet, they're real when it comes to making immunity deals.
I'm confused when was she Abby and when was she an alter? Was she Abby or an alter, when she badgered and harassed Gabi in the D'Mera's living room and demanded her to confess to killing Andre and threw killing Nick in her face? Was she Abby or an alter, when she told SPD, Chad and everyone w/in ear range of her suspicions and used killing Nick to support her spews? Was she Abby or an alter, when she told Gabi in her Gabi Chic office that she was extremely envious of her and wished she was like her? Was she Abby or an alter, when she became so furious with Stefan for asking Gabi on a date, instead of her? Was she Abby or Gabi, when she witnessed Chabi in a friendly embrace? We know for a fact that she murdered Andre in cold blood and killing him is why she split! Well, if that's true, then she was an alter when the above happened, yet, had everyone including viewers believing she was Abby. Therefore, remind me again, why should I believe she was an alter and wasn't Abby when she tried to kill elderly women by bashing their heads in with blunt objects. Remind me again why am I supposed to believe she was an alter and not Abby when she was making passionate love to Stefan? Remind me again, that wasn't Abby making an arse of herself in Hong Kong jumping up and down on the bed? Remind me again, why that wasn't Abby that followed Gabi to the restroom, went to Trask and begged to be recalled to the stand and while still under oath, mumbled, "Sorry Gabi" then lied through her teeth that Gabi confessed to her in the restroom that she killed Andre? Remind me again that wasn't Abby that made an immunity deal with Trask? Remind me again that was Abby that Chad made her alters vanished and she's now Abby?
Abby created alters that made brand new meaning of psychopaths, which means, since they are fragments of her, she is far worse then a psychopath! All I want to see is Abby permanently locked up in a mental institution for the criminally insane! She won't have to worry about which Gabi Chic dresses to wear bc she'd only wear a straight jacket!
