The symptoms include:
So how will this play out in Sandusky's child sex-abuse trial?

Will Sandusky testify? Defense says 'stay tuned'
Jerry Sandusky's attorney told reporters Tuesday to "stay tuned" to see if his client will testify in a child rape case that has upended Penn State University and its football program.
"You have to wait," attorney Joe Amendola said just before entering the Pennsylvania courthouse and calling witnesses for a second day.
Sandusky, 68, is on trial on 51 counts related to accusations of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year span. The former Penn State defensive coordinator has denied the charges.
His wife, Dottie, also entered the Centre County Courthouse on Tuesday, though it is not clear if she will testify on her husband's behalf. Her arrival marks the first time she's appeared at the trial.
Jerry Sandusky would be his own worst enemy on the stand. He is already mentally disturbed and does not believe that he did anything wrong. That would definitely come through if he testified.
