Grace....That particular pathology does not fit Michele in the least. I think I understand what prompted your question but she is certainly not Textbook in terms of that specific diagnosis.
Think about this Grace, any woman who sees herself as a Human Baby Factory (at best) or a slave to her reproductive system (at worst) cannot and does not have an ounce of self-respect, self-awareness, self worth or rights whatsoever. The individual "person" she is, was or could have ever been, was completely lost long ago.....perhaps after baby # 10 (?)
The "Duggars" IMHO are an enigma. The most learned experts in the world (in the field of mental health) could merely provide "educated speculation" on this mysterious couple.
Their belief system, lifestyle and true motives are extremely off the charts and if you've listened carefully to them.....even THEY have no valid, rational nor acceptable standards 98% of the human race is able to understand or sanction.
The "rest" of us can see what we believe to be these rare, strange and off the wall behaviors, but to THEM, it's all just fine and in fact, the "way it should be." The TV shows depicting all of these rarities may expose them to the public, but they do nothing more than open it all to controversy, speculation and criticism. Look at "Sister Wives"...another BIZARRE lifestyle/belief system....to mainstream public. One man with 4 (alleged) wives, 18 kids and having the conviction and audacity to demand they be considered perfectly normal, rational, intelligent & viewed as any other family in America.
So Grace, I can only believe that we are not to wonder, question nor comment? I can see what I see, know what I know, shake my head and move on. The only consolation (WE) might have in what we see as PATHOLOGY is that we ourselves are not afflicted!! We have our very own issues! LOL........."Happy New Year," Peace, Paula
