Quote dairymaid: I have to admit that actress, Sharon Case who plays Sharon Newman is really an awesome actress! She knows how to look crazy! Lately, I believe that this storyline is going to show that she is indeed losing her "marbles" and will need to be hospitalized in a mental institution.
Nooooo...in my opinion, she is not doing anything that a lot of women that has been through what she has...sad but true. Lost her only daughter(God forbid),at the same time her husband pulls away and end up leaving her for a psychopath, another daughter is presumed dead; but kidnapped by the man she falls in love with, persecuted in public, thrown in jail for crime she didn't commit...and that for starters.
these are huge. if more posts come in, we can predict they will point about how she has left town more than once, that kind of thing. what she has endured is always crossed out by some kind of bad choices she's made, as if this somehow erases the suffering she's endured. she's been through the worst traumas. yes, phyl has had two miscarriages (the second one bothered her for all of part of a day and then she pulled herself up by her bootstraps and moved on and all focus went to ricky and daisy) but she's not been raped, beaten, had her teenage child die, and made to think she'd lost another child. these are things that would make anyone crack, and we know that on yr no one gets the help they need and no one who supposedly cares for a person sees to it that he or she gets the help needed.
i'm not seeing how sharon can be ceo and do it successfully when it really does seem something's off and been off for months. at any other time i'd have faith in sharon's ability to succeed, but there's too much that's strange and not her going on. it's too bad. she'll have a breakdown or the tumor will be discovered or some other physical reason for how she's been behaving, and all that some in gc will focus on is that she burned bridges and put ne in jeopardy. i just don't see how she can be sick in some way and also be made to succeed at holding down the ne position. but the writing has been so up-and-down for so long, so who knows. i'm still not over how they had sharon and nicky have that poignant shared moment in jail and then things immediately returned to snarky nikki acting like they'd not talked and treating sharon like dirt again. that in-jail moment seemed like it was going to actually mean something, but it was dropped. i thought then that maybe someone would finally be unselfish enough to realize that sharon was in need of help.
