Sarah tries to blow up a computer factory but gets shot and arrested.
She tells the story about a human-looking machine sent from the future to kill her and about the father of her son being a soldier sent from the year 2029 to protect her. She is diagnosed with an acute schizo-affective disorder and is sent to Pescadero State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Dr. Silberman, who has met Sarah back in 1984, diagnoses her with depression, anxiety, violent acting-out and delusions of persecution.
↑Information given by John in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. There is no specific date given for Sarah attempt to blow up the building and getting caught in the film. She has been at the Pescadero State Hospital for at least six months in June 1995, placing her hospitalization in 1994 or earlier.
↑John says: They only gave her (Sarah) six months. But she fought for three years. Long enough to make sure (...) that the world didn't end (in 1997). T3 It seems odd that Sarah was diagnosed before the events of Terminator 2: Judgement Day because her medical condition is never mentioned in the film.
