She had previously explained that she had staged a repetition of Anna having become psychotic 10 years earlier. All was just to carry out a project. Anna described how she had spoken with various persons and informed that she wanted to pretend to be psychotic for 24 hours and see what happened then. Anna left "To reconstruct a psychosis" by Anna Odell Konstfack 2008, in which pat’s entire reasoning regarding events of the past day are described.
