I spoke to a family member, whom is a Psychiatrist with a Doctorate Degree, and had him analyze some of her writings. He suggested that Ms. Birchard exhibits strong signs of Paranoid Schizophrenia. Out of the 10 symptoms listed for the disease below, Katie has publicly exhibited 8 on a regular basis.
- Auditory hallucinations, such as hearing voices
- Delusions, such as believing a co-worker wants to poison you
- Verbal confrontations
- Patronizing manner
- Suicidal thoughts and behavior
- Positive symptoms that indicate the presence of unusual thoughts and perceptions that often involve a loss of contact with reality.
The delusional content (the beliefs) of the person with paranoid schizophrenia is marked by grandiosity, or persecution, or both. Onset can be fairly rapid but may be difficult for others to recognize it for what it is. Anger, irritation or argumentative behavior may be the most prominent features, as is extreme jealousy.
They may see or hear things that don’t exist, speak in strange or confusing ways, believe that others are trying to harm them, or feel like they’re being constantly watched. With such a blurred line between the real and the imaginary, they usually lash out, without cause and thus have many enemies. They also pose a physical risk to both themselves and others that they perceive to be a threat to them.
In light of her recent rant, we'd like to present a few of our own things that go without saying:
*Katie Lynn Birchard is indeed being sued for $100,000 plus any punitive damages determined to be appropriate by the court. She has attempted to file a motion to lift default judgment against her. The said motion will be heard in Burbank, California on September 16th. Other lawsuits are pending and will come to light in the coming days and weeks.
"I think when you... talk about his obsessive behavior, it seems that you should turn the mirror around and look in it yourself... With respect to the remaining orders, there is absolutely no basis for granting any of those orders. NO STAYAWAY ORDERS ARE APPROPRIATE; NONE OF THE PERSONAL CONTACT ORDERS, with the exception of the one involving contact between the two of you."
*Katie Lynn Birchard has not been physically or otherwise harassed at any public event, and according to many witnesses, physically assaulted a female movie-goer at a recent Theda Bara screening in Hollywood.
*Katie Lynn Birchard claims to fear the threat of violence and death from multiple persons, yet consistently shows up to events, without any escort whatsoever, and provokes the persons she claims to fear, knowing that said people will also be in attendance. She waves and snickers to those persons allegedly conspiring to kill her, in public settings, yet she claims to sleep with pepper spray under her pillow and an axe at her bedside. She is either mighty foolish or full of shit. Which do you think it is?
*No one has shown up to any public court preceding with an intent to harass Katie Lynn Birchard; nor to report back to any website or organization. Ms. Birchard has created a circus of epic proportions, and the entire Silent Film Community is turning out to watch the spectacle. The only way to separate fact from fiction, is to attend such hearings so they can be accurately reported, and not falsified through one of Ms. Birchard's websites or blogs.
*As far as we know, Katie Lynn Birchard is not a psychic and has no way of legally knowing what is being searched via Google, unless she has hacked into the computer of said individuals.
*Someone, claiming to be Kevin Birchard and insinuating that he was Katie's father, sent homophobic and harassing emails and comments to several people in recent days. We felt that it was alarming enough to warrant a mention here.
*A temporary restraining order is not a "full-blown" restraining order. Such temporary orders are granted when a person claims to have experienced physical violence and are standard to protect the general public. The burden of proof now lies in Katie's hands, and she must now prove such accusations on September 10th in Burbank, California.
*According to Katie Lynn Birchard, her career list has been at one time, or is currently the following:
- Silent Film Authority
- Record Label Owner
- Publishing Company Owner
She claims to be doing very well with her endeavors, but in the same sentence, claims to be totally broke, with no car, and also asking the court to waive all of her legal fees, due to inability to pay.
We will let everyone make their own conclusions on the preceding. Enough has been said.
Until next time,
