FUGUE “WHAT HAPPENED TO HANNAH UPP?

FUGUE                    “WHAT HAPPENED TO HANNAH UPP?

OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY IS “FUGUE”.   I WANT TO SHARE THE MEANING OF FUGUE FROM THE WEBSTER DICTIONARY WHICH IS A PARTIAL DEFINITION THAT APPLIES TO THIS POST AND THE DAILY WISDOM WORD MEANING BEFORE GOING FURTHER. 

WEBSTER DICTIONARY MEANING OF FUGUE-1.  A STATE OR PERIOD OF LOSS OF AWARENESS OF ONE’S IDENTITY, OFTEN COUPLED WITH FLIGHT FROM ONE’S ENVIRONMENT ASSOCIATED WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES INCLUDING DISASSOCIATIVE PERSONALITY DISORDER KNOW AS D.I. D. 

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION-A STATE OF LOSS OF ONE’S SELF WHEN AN ALTERNATE PERSONALITY TAKES CONTROL IN AN INDIVIDUAL AND THIS ALTERNATE REALITY TAKES OVER ONE’S LIFE FOR TEMPORARY PERIODS OF TIME.  THE INDIVIDUAL AFTER COMING OUT OF A FUGUE HAS NO MEMORY OR RECOGNITION OF THE TIME THAT HAS ELAPSED DURING THIS FUGUE STATE WHEN SWITCHING BACK. 

AFTER A FUGUE, THERE IS USUALLY NO MEMORY OF THE PLACES GONE OR THE TIME PERIOD WHICH CAN BE MONTHS OR YEARS IN THAT INDIVIDUALS MEMORY DURING THEIR DISAPPEARANCE. 

A FUGUE IS USUALLY ASSOCIATED WITH PAST TRAUMA THAT HAS NOT BEEN DEALT WITH.  THE BEST WAY TO EXPLAIN A FUGUE IS FROM SHARING THE STORY OF HANNAH UP. UPP LIVED IN THE VIRGIN ISLANDS, USA AND WENT MISSING IN SEPTEMBER 2017.  A HURRICANE, CATEGORY 5, HAD JUST HIT THE ISLAND A FEW DAYS BEFORE HANNAH WENT MISSING ANOTHER HURRICANE HIT THE ISLAND, ALSO A CATEGORY 5,  JUST A FEW DAYS AFTER HANNAH UPP’S DISAPPEARANCE. HANNAH TO SET UP HER CLASSROOM FOR THE UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR ABOUT TO START. SHE WOKE UP THE DAY AFTER THIS, AND WAS LAST SEEN AT APPROXIMATELY 8:00 AM THAT MORNING LEAVING IN HER CAR.  SHE HAS NOT BEEN SEEN SINCE. 

A SEARCH WENT ON FOR TWO DAYS COMBING THE ISLAND LOOKING FOR HANNAH AND THEN HURRICANE MARIA, ANOTHER CATEGORY 5 HIT.  MANY PEOPLE WERE REPORTED MISSING AFTER THE HURRICANE, AND THE PRIORITY OF FINDING HANNAH WAS TEMPORARILY PUT ASIDE DURING THIS CHAOS. 

HER FRIENDS, BEGAN SEARCHING FOR HER AGAIN AND FOUND HER CAR WITH HER WALLET AND HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS STILL IN IT ALONG WITH HER CREDIT CARDS AND IDENTIFICATION.  THE KEYS ALONG WITH GARMENTS WERE FOUND ALONG THE BEACH AFTER HANNAH LEFT A NOTE SAYING SHE HAD GONE FOR A SWIM. 

WHAT BEGAN AS A MISSING PERSONS CASE, WAS REEXAMINED AFTER RESCUERS FOUND THAT HANNAH UPP HAD DISAPPEARED PRIOR TO THIS IN NEW YORK CITY FIVE YEARS EARLIER FOR ALMOST A MONTH AND  APPROXIMATELY A YEAR LATER AGAIN, DISAPPEARED FOR EIGHT DAYS, AFTER RESCUERS FOUND HER, BARELY SAVING HER LIFE.  UPP WAS LOCATED  IN STATEN ISLAND WATERS WHERE A FERRY FOUND HER FACE DOWN IN WATER AFTER SEEING WHAT LOOKED LIKE A HUMAN HEAD JUST ABOVE THE WATER, INVESTIGATING FURTHER.  

AFTER THOSE TWO PRIOR INCIDENTS, SHE HAD NO MEMORY OF HER WHEREABOUTS OR TIME ELAPSED DURING THESE EPISODES.  SHORTLY AFTER HER FIRST DISAPPEARANCE, SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH THE RARE MENTAL HEALTH CONDITION OF “FUGUE DISORDER”.  

 IT UPSET ME ENOUGH AFTER READING A FOX NEWS ARTICLE AND SEEING FLIPPANT COMMENTS FROM THOSE WHO BELIEVE SHE DISAPPEARED AND DID NOT WANT TO BE FOUND, WITH NO CONSIDERATION OR KNOWLEDGE OF THIS CONDITION.  SOMEWHERE AFTER BEING DIAGNOSED BY PSYCHIATRISTS, WITH A CONDITION, A “FUGUE DISORDER.”   MANY COMMENTS SUGGEST SHE WANTED TO DISAPPEAR OR MAKE LIGHT OF THIS DUE TO A LACK OF UNDERSTANDING OF THIS CONDITION.

THIS IS A VERY REAL MENTAL HEALTH ILLNESS, AND COMMENTS POSTED UNDER HER NEWS STORY SEEM TO BE FLIPPANT AND UNACCEPTABLE.  I FELT IT NECESSARY TO EXPLAIN THIS TO ENLIGHTEN OTHERS. 

THIS IS A CONDITION WHERE THE PERSON IN A FUGUE GOES ON AUTO-PILOT AND HAS NO MEMORY OF THE TIME LAPSE OR ACTIONS THEY EXPERIENCED IN THIS ALTERNATE STATE.  THIS CONDITION AFFECTS APPROXIMATELY 2 IN EVERY THOUSAND INDIVIDUALS AND OFTEN IS ASSOCIATED WITH DISSOCIATIVE PERSONALITY DISORDER BUT NOT EXCLUSIVE TO THIS ILLNESS AS IT CAN HAPPEN AS A CONDITION OF ITS OWN. 

HANNAH UPP HAS NOT BEEN SEEN UP TO THE DATE OF THIS POST AFTER DISAPPEARING IN THE VIRGIN ISLANDS IS EARLY SEPTEMBER, 2017. 

ALL THREE INCIDENTS TOOK PLACE IN EARLY FALL AND ALL THREE INCIDENTS WERE NEAR WATER.  HOWEVER IT NOW HAS BEEN ALMOST FOUR YEARS SINCE HANNAH DISAPPEARED.  HER MOTHER HOLDS OUT HOPE THAT SHE IS IN A FUGUE STATE NOW AND STILL WRITES TO HER DAUGHTER BECAUSE OF THIS INCIDENT BEING SO EERILY FAMILIAR FROM THE TWO PRIOR DISAPPEARANCES HOLDING ONTO HOPE HER DAUGHTER IS STILL ALIVE.

DISAPPEARING FOR A MONTH OR A LITTLE OVER A WEEK IS MUCH DIFFERENT THAN THIS TIME FRAME OF CLOSE TO FOUR YEARS. 

WHAT HAPPENED TO HANNAH UPP?    WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR INSIGHTFUL, THOUGHTFUL COMMENTS WITH YOUR OPINIONS AND OR THOUGHTS.  SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL PERSON AND HER FRIENDS NOTE SHE WAS SUCH AN INSPIRATION TO OTHERS AND SUCH A BRIGHT SPOT IN THEIR LIVES.  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/29/nyregion/missing-teacher-virgin-islands.html

PLEASE POST YOUR THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS ON OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD, FUGUE AND INTEGRATE THE STORY WITH  ITS DEFINITION.  PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS RESPECTFUL AND EMPATHETIC.   HER MOTHER AND LOVED ONES SHOULD BE CONSIDERED, AS WELL OF HER MENTAL HEALTH DISORDER, A FUGUE PERSONALITY DISORDER. 

THANKS SO MUCH, SAMANTHA LEBOEUF
