With the heels of my feet on Netflix's, 'THE ACT'. A docudrama tightly based on both an psychological condition, and the reapercussions found in its wake. As well, the insight INTO the disease that effects and affects meeting on the side lines. It's so spooky to hear such similarities from this case in relation to Gypsy Rose's.

Torcherous to listen to does the moderater have the educational background to talk this mother ? Her questions and comments Are so accusatory to this woman it was obvious she was trying to make a miraculous recovery for this woman who just got more guarded and emotional and full of regret for the way she feels as the interview went on. she was relentless with this is how you should feel and do with bad advice. Just interview her not try to fix her you have no idea how obnoxious and superior you come off

Virginia Harkin it's therapy... the job of the therapist is to help you learn to address the issue in question, to emapthetically challenge you to grow, not just be a non speaking wall. I disagree that the therapist was trying to miraculously paint over things, rather she was helping her unpack by stating truths the woman can hold onto rather than walking her further down the despair she is feeling which is a self defeating emotion

Shannon Candido Just don't start feeling guilty for being white. That is a slippery slope. Cheers from Belgium.
