Hi all,
explain to me please, how should I interpret the sentence (some words are replaced to make the text more neutral):
"This can lead her into alternating between something1 and something2; If there is no resolution, as she may go back to something3."
I totally can't understand what "as" means in this case.
Is it "she may also go back to something3, if she can't decide between something1 and something2" or something different?
OR: "when she goes back to something3, it can lead her into alternating between something1 and something2"?

Welcome to the forum.

I'm afraid it doesn't make any sense to me. Did you change a word to "something" throughout this, or is that how it was written in the first place?

Yes, I replaced some words. I can show the original, I hope that this will make it clear, though I doubt it:

She spent most of her early life being a victim and being rescued, occasionally, by her mother or grand-mother. She probably still feels herself to be a victim of her daughter. This can lead her, briefly, into alternating between a persecutor and rescuing role; if there is no resolution, as she may go back to feeling victimized.
