*Trigger Warning* 

Since this is about a (unfortunate) case, I thought I would definitely throw a trigger warning up there.

"Gypsy Rose Blanchard grew up with her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, making claims about her health that resulted in a series of dire diagnoses and medical interventions. However, Gypsy wasn't actually unwell — her mother had been lying about her symptoms. Experts believe Dee Dee's behavior stemmed from the mental di*ord*r Munchausen syndrome by proxy; because Dee Dee wanted to be a caretaker, she feigned and induced illness in her daughter. The truth about Gypsy and her mother only came out after Gypsy arranged for an online boyfriend to m**der Dee Dee in 2015."

For those of you who know of this case, or have seen the numerous documentaries on it, or have even seen the show based on it - The Act - what are your thoughts?

Do you believe Gypsy Rose should be free?

I, personally, do. Fortunately enough, she will be eligible for parole in 2024. 

I am simply fascinated in this case and wanted to know if anyone else has any opinions or thoughts on it. Do you think that Gypsy should've been as punished for the crime she conspired to take place?

I don't see why not. 

Why do I say that? Well. She was an unfortunate v****m in all of this. Her mother was slowly killing her with all of the surgeries and med*cations that she did not need.  Not to mention she was mentally ab**ive & emotionally ab**ive. Gypsy was just her mother's puppet. 

Do I agree that Gypsy's mentally ill and autistic boyfriend should have m**dered her mother? No. Absolutely not. I think there were other ways to end this. But, looking at it from Gypsy and Nick's limited thinking skills with mental illness & ab**e playing a key factor. I honestly believe they felt this was the only way that they could be free of her mother, Claudine. 

It's just not good anyway you look at it.

This is exactly how I feel about it too 👍

Ah we went over this in medical ethics class. Such a sad case. And unfortunately more common than you’d think. I think Gypsy needs to be put on a mental health plan if they do plan on giving her parole. It would help her a lot to adjust since she never had a normal life.

Apparently, she is thriving more than ever in p*****n. 

She is more free than she ever has been in her life, truly. She has said this herself.

She can finally have friends, relationships, but unfortunately - she is more susceptible to getting her mother's syndrome being gone through it (studies say), and her perception of ANY reality is seriously distorted (how could it not).

So I would say yes, proper counseling and possibly med*cation, if needed.

But she has been thoroughly checked by the p*****n's medical staff, I am sure.

She was going to get married to some guy. But she broke up with him.

Yes, I remember this. 

I did further research - they are on talking terms again, engagement on hold, but he has not given up on Gypsy. 

(This case is one I’ve done far more than extensive research on, lol)

That's good that she has a guy sticking with her through thick and thin while she sits it out in p*****n. I have to give him credit for his restraint not to move on to another woman whom is more available.

@Mr.Dawn According to “sources” that write to Gypsy in p*****n, that was the reasoning for the first initial break-up. But they are on speaking terms again. It made me happy. 

 

Gypsy is someone I wholeheartedly root for.

I can imagine how difficult it would be to want someone and not be able to be around them because of p;rison. Writing and calling someone up on the phone just simply isn't enough somtimes. This has to be just as hard on her than it is on him. I'm glad they're both working through this together.

I felt the same way about the West Memphis 3 because I didn't believe they ki**ed those little k***s. It felt more like witch hunt.

Yeah, they arrested and convicted 3 teenage boys for the m**ders of those 3 little boys WITHOUT EVIDENCE of any kind. No physical or DNA evidence. They didn't even know the little boys that were m**dered. The cops dragged them into interrogation & basically put words in their mouths and went off of unevidenced claims and rumors. It was a sh;it storm. The whole thing.

      Everyone has one about literally anything, right?  Keep in mind, this is just opinions. Serious, supported by facts, funny, whatever your opinion is on whatever. Just be cool with each other if you have a different opinion, and enjoy.
      I'll start.
      In my opinion, the best sensation a body can have is just to sneeze. Now, I know what many of you think, "Yeah well what about that one sweet sensation of release though". Yeah, sure but that's just my opinion. Ah, endorphins.

      This is a bit of a rant, but for those who want to listen, are painfully bored, or are strictly here for educational purposes, welcome..
      This is a commonly discussed topic I guess, but it is one of those topics that consumes my mind... Once again, only due to the mass affect it has on others and what it did to me, someone who usually is not easily manipulated.
      Now, if you are apart of an MLM, or this is how you make your income - this is absolutely no shame to you. This is about my personal opinion, my personal experience with MLMs, people who have communicated with me in them, and my most recent experience with a 'hun'.
      On Tuesday, I randomly received a message from a man whom I have never met, is not from my state, we had no mutual friends, and I truly had no idea how he could possibly come across me on Facebook at all. He acted kind to me at first, and then randomly asked me what I do for a job, and if I would like to make extra income.
      Now, these are easy 'buzzwords' for those who don't know - when an MLMer is about to try and prospect you. I know this - because well, I have used them on many. Especially when cold-messaging. I of course looked on his profile and saw he was apart of the scammy 'PHP Agency'. I gave him a lengthy message, because when do I not?
      My response: I am an Operations Controller. I want to let you know upfront, I highly do not support MLMs, being that I was in one for 2 years and know all about them. I actually do know a lot about the company you're about to pitch me, 'PHP Agency', and I know it's an outright pyramid scheme. This company targets young and impressionable people to recruit them and make money off of them to benefit the few at the top. Now, I do not know your rank, but you also found me out of nowhere. They will recruit anyone and everyone and use "selling insurance" as the cover for this scam. LinkedIn is a common method of contacting their v****ms, this time you found me on Facebook. I know what it's like it be told "you have to invest in any business to own a business". You do not own this business. You are not the CEO, you are not the founder, you are an 1099 Employee while the "company" you're under sees you as a dollar sign, which you also do me. Hey, my name is Dollar Sign, what's yours? Don't tell me about opportunities, making me pay $200 to start, how my life will change, time freedom, not your typical 9-5, oh and do you know the statistics by the FTC of who actually makes a profit in an MLM? Less than 1%. Don't b'ulls'hit a former b'ullshi'tter. Don't want to embarrass myself and ruin my career. Wrong person to message. 
      Apparently, that response got him heated. He asked me what a pyramid scheme was, you know another common tactic for getting mad that you aren't able to recruit someone, or the plain old fact that someone is blatantly calling you a fraud, can't pick which one. Starts going off on me saying I probably don't know what a 401k is. Asking me different questions regarding Life Insurance, specific terms, etc. And then starts to insult me and says I don't even know what a real job is because I probably have never had one.
      It's funny, because in my original response I told him my actual position in the job I work for. It is actually the first thing I state and you can easily google it. I am at an executive position. So this string of questioning, was downright laughable, considering I know very well how a business works. IT'S MY JOB. He then went off on me, telling me to do my research, so on and so forth.... After I stopped responding. So he is now talking to an empty space in Facebook Messenger before I can effectively block him. 
      The entire day after this exchange, I started thinking about my prior experience, and it wouldn't leave my mind.
      I was in MONAT for over two years, did not succeed, and I'm not ashamed - most don't. I was swindled by one of my BEST FRIENDS (whom we are no longer friends anymore, we lost each other to an MLM), and I was instantly put into WhatsApp group messages, Facebook groups, had mandatory Zoom meetings and calls claiming we all weren't working hard enough, and my upline's (my former friend) UPLINE sent me an extremely nasty voice note that ended my time in MONAT. She berated me, said I should be working 24/7 around the clock, that's how 'real' entrepreneurs do it, and gave me some severely 'tough love' (as she calls it) in order to 'motivate me'. My friend who got me into this saw no issue with this and defended her upline. Btw, I make more than this girl who berated me in this voice message (at my REAL job), but THAT IS NEITHER HERE NOR THERE.
       I left the company.
      Herbalife, IM Academy, PHP Agency....
      OPTAVIA ~ In my opinion, please do not even consider...
      These are tox*c companies and don't get me started on the unhealthy weight loss practices; they are making me downright sick. Especially seeing them all over my timeline. Optavia likes to promote this "gentle fat burn state" to lose weight by diet alone. However, I can't find anything on "fat burn state" unless it is ketosis. I found an article from an actual registered dietitian and she mentioned a percentage of their diet doesn't equal a true ketosis so they are essentially losing weight by STARVATION. Fantastic way to end up with seriously di*ord*red thinking about food or make those worse.
      Also, if they're a "health coach" and can't even tell you the name of the company or the diet you're overpaying for just to starve yourself. It is truly paying $400+ a month for an eating di*ord*r. 
      And well, pushing a diet on anybody is downright insulting and disgusting if you ask me. 
      I speak of Optavia because after my mother passed away, a few of her friends decided to join. They had a lot to lose (they were clinically obese, so when the instant results started coming in, of course they were instantly able to recruit more and more others). Attempted with me, and if you knew me -  I am pretty damn tiny.
      (THIS DIET IS A 800-1000 KCAL A DAT STARVATION DIET FULL OF PROCESSED CRAP THAT COSTS AROUND $400 A MONTH)
      *Once again, these are all my opinions at the end of the day with a mix of facts. If you disagree with me, I welcome it completely.
      Have you, or someone you know ever been influenced or had any bad experiences regarding an MLM?
      Have you had any GOOD experiences regarding an MLM?
      So curious because this is by far one of my favorite topics.

      Yes I am suffering from another one. If you've had at least 1 in your life you are at risk for more. It's common for one side of my family to get them. 
       
      So, let's name my little demon. I'll name the winner after I pass this beast.

      Ever find some thing that was sort of interesting looking that you wanted to take a picture of? Maybe it's a rock shaped like a heart, maybe a glitch in a game, maybe you see a face on some toast.
      Or maybe you have a thought you'd like to express that isn't quite common, but hey, interesting.

      I did watch him in the beginning. 
      Reason I watched him was because I played amnesia with friends. I never saw a video from pewds. When I played they tough I watched him did same stuff he did in amnesia (in dutch) when they showed me was really weird watch someone playing a horror game with same jokes😅 only thing what was different i wasn't scared at all 😂 my friends found joke funny but I was boring because I wasn't scared never screamed. 
      I did watch him for horror games and the fun with pewds but after a year or 2 he became boring for me. I started watch call me kevin instead.
