English term or phrase: take on a life of their own of sorts
Disconnection does not just refer to a victim's orientation to the outside world but also to their intrapsychic or mental organization. Symptoms can become disconnected from the original stimulus or event and can become fragmented, leading to a sense of chaos and disorganization. They can take on a life of their own of sorts, and the purposeful action and responses of everyday living are disrupted and break down. Perception becomes untrustworthy, false, and fear-based despite no evidence of danger. Judgment and decision making fail as a consequence of bad data. The nervous system is reconditioned, resulting in a perpetual state of alert with no or very little habituation.
