This is where an individual purposely makes a person, he or she is taking care of sick, whether it be physically or mentally. The critical care nurse journals says quote in 1977 physician Roy meadow coined the term Munchausen Syndrome by proxy or as is abbreviated m s B p when he described two cases in which the appearance symptoms of mood chosen syndrome were projected onto dependent children by mothers who fabricated signs of nonexistent illness.

The MSB parent, usually a birth or foster mother seeks health care for her child because she is somehow personally compelled to relate to the medical care system. The abusers underlying psychiatric problems obliged her to gain positive attention from medical personnel and she derives its attention by having a child with health problems. Thus compelled perpetrators will do whatever it takes to satisfy their need. M S B P and it's mildest form consist of simple fabrication of symptoms. However, if this fabrication does not garner sufficient interest from medical providers, abusers are driven to increase the stakes. Moderate MSBP is manifested by tampering with laboratory specimens, falsifying medical records and so on.

Gypsy was born in 1991 to Dee Dee Blanchard and Rod Blanchard. Her parents separated before she was born. When she was eight days old, dd ran with her to the hospital saying that the baby has sleep apnea. The doctors determined that she didn't, but DB became convinced that something was wrong with gypsy. After that, Dee Dee would always have a watchful eye on gypsy. When Gypsy was eight she fell off her grandfather's motorcycle. Dd ran her to the hospital where the girl was treated for minor scrapes. However, this resulted in Gypsy rose having to use a wheelchair until an adult in diagnosis from her mother who had previously worked as a nurse's aide of having leukemia, muscular dystrophy and seizures. She would also need to wear glasses and get a feeding tube in her stomach. Deedee also told everyone that Gypsy had cancer and shaved her head. Bald Didi was able to coerce medical practitioners to prescribed gypsy numerous medications and a breathing machine to help her sleep. Gypsy also underwent surgeries. Some of the surgeries for getting her saliva glands removed, multiple eyes, surgeries and muscle biopsy is still shocks me that doctors were able to do these surgeries without actual proof that Gypsy actually needed them.

Gypsy rose might not have been DDS only victim deedee's family speculates that she started her own mother to death. She also was killing her step mother Laura Petri. Slowly by poisoning her Dee Dee and Gypsy moved in with her father and stepmother and all of a sudden Laura started getting sick. Family members say that Dee Dee was feeding her stepmother weed killer and that the woman was bedridden for seven months. When Dee Dee and Gypsy rose moved out, her stepmother miraculously got better. In 2018 Laura passed away and the family suspects that the weed killer cut her life short. Deedee was also arrested several times for petty theft, including stealing from her own family members.

After Hurricane Katrina, dd showed up with Gypsy at a shelter and claim that all of their medical records had been destroyed due to the natural disaster. She was able to use this to get a birth certificate for Gypsy that dropped her age from 14 to 10 gypsy had no idea how old she really was until she was an adult. Media picked up the story in charities and people showed their support. Free trips, including the Disney, the car customize to support a wheelchair money and more habitat for humanity built them a pink house with the wheelchair ramp in Springfield, Missouri and Dee Dee and Gypsy mood from the Louisiana dd barely spoke to her family. Also, Dee Dee would tell Gypsies, dad ride that he could not handle their daughter due to her issues, so she kept him away. The distance also helped her keep gypsy more in her grasped all of Gypsies teeth would eventually be pulled out because they were riding away.

It is theorized that it was because of the medicine she was taking. The doctors did with Didi wanted. If they didn't or started asking too many questions, Didi would quickly stop seeing them. In 2007 Dr Bernardo flats or steam suspected DB and even wrote in Gypsy's filed that quote, there is a strong possibility of mood Charles and did proxy unquote. Nothing was pursued further. Child protective services was anonymously modified that there were no medical reason for the suppose it elements Gypsy had, but as with everyone else, db was also able to make them believe that Gypsy was really sick.

Gypsy started getting interested in dating. Gypsy always wore costumes when she attended science fiction and fantasy conventions. At one of those conventions, she met a man and ran away with him. Her mother found her that same night and threatened the man that she would call the police for him being with an underage girl, even though Gypsy rose was really an adult when they got home, dd smashed Gypsies Laptop and handcuffed her to the bed for about two weeks. She would feed live such gypsy so gypsy wouldn't try and leave again. Deedee became more abusive because she started realizing that she was losing her power over gypsy. Gypsy would wait til her mother would go to sleep and sneak and use her laptop at night. She joined an online dating site and that is where she met Nicholas. Good. John Nicholas and Gypsy dated for two and a half years. She would take pictures in different costumes and the two practice BDSM. They met at a movie theater to watch Cinderella Dee Dee instantly disliked Nicholas and thought he was creepy even so, Nicholas in Gypsy snuck into the movie theater, bathroom and had sex. Dee became angry and Gypsy said that her mother screened insulted her and through things because she felt that Gypsy was paying too much intention to Nicholas.
Speaker 2:
10:55
Nicholas and Gypsy started to plan to kill Dee Dee when they felt they had perfected the plan. Nicholas was let into the house by Gypsy. She gave him duct tape, gloves and a knife. She hid in the bathroom while Nicholas Stab Dee Dee multiple times while she screamed out for gypsy. All of a sudden things would go quiet. Bd Slash words to gypsy were don't hurt me. After she died, Nicholas and Gypsy would have sex in Gypsy's bedroom right next to the room where Dee Dee's body laid. They would mail the knife to his house before departing. After taking $4,000 they went to a motel room and stayed there for a few days before heading to Nicholas Parents' house. In the video cameras, you can see Gypsy in the motel with Nicholas with a dark wig.
Speaker 2:
12:05
The pair headed to Nicholas Parents' house. From there, they went on Facebook and posted the following quote. That bitch is dead unquote and quote I f and slashed that fat pig and raped her sweet innocent daughter. Her scream was so effing loud, l lol, l unquote. This alarm, friends and family who called the police on Sunday, June 14th, 2015 deedee was discovered in her home brutally murdered police chase, the Ip address of the Facebook posts back to Nicholas Parent's home. Gypsy and Nicholas were arrested and charged with murder in Hulu, Siri fee act. It was shown that the two broke those posts so that someone would find Gypsies, mother's body. This was something Gypsy has said so that her mother Dee Dee would receive the proper burial. Family and friends were shocked when they saw Gypsy walking and with the head of hair into court. Gypsy was given 10 years in jail and Nicholas was given a life sentence. They both admit that Gypsy was the mastermind. Gypsy rose told ABC News from prison quote, the prison that I was living in before with my mom. It's like I couldn't walk. I couldn't eat. I couldn't have friends. I couldn't go outside, you know, and play with friends or anything. Over here. I feel like I'm fear in prison then with living with my mom because now I'm allowed to just live like a normal woman.
Speaker 2:
14:04
Well, what did you think? I'm torn between the sentences of both the Gypsy and Nicholas. I do believe db would have eventually killed her, but that still isn't enough to murder. Her. Gypsy could have walked away, but when you had been brainwashed since a little girl and threatened and that person is your mother, I can see why it was hard for her. It would have been better if she did though. I do think that if both of them were sentenced, the sentences should have been a little bit more equal. Being that she was the one who was the mastermind in her mother's murder, it's been said that Nicholas is mentally challenged and easily manipulated. However, it's like female serial killer, Patricia Martinez. He still participated in the murder of Dee Dee Blanchard. It's also been indicated that he wanted to rate Dee Dee. I do wonder if he hadn't said that.
Speaker 2:
15:08
If his sentence would have been shorter. Gypsy was already in prison for 19 years before she murdered her mother. I just hope that both of them are getting mental health services. It was said that Gypsy is now engaged to a man who had been writing her in prison. Gypsy one sat in a documentary quote that she learned a woman's role is to be submissive in a man's is to be dominant unquote. It is concerning and I just hope that she doesn't end up being someone's victim when she gets out of jail. My daughter and I watch Hulu is the act with Patricia. Our cat and Joey king and we thought they did a great job acting as well as Kalem worthy. I do recommend it if you haven't seen it already. I read an article a couple of weeks ago that Gypsy Rose Blanchard is planning to sue Hulu because of the show due to them making money off of her, so we'll see how that turns out.
Speaker 2:
16:15
I'll admit to everyone that I was a bit worried on doing a podcast on Gypsy Rose Blanchard because due to the WHO lose act, many people have been doing documentaries, news reports, even Dr Phil did one. Even though I didn't like that, he made us seem like Nicholas was 100% the reason Dee Dee is dead. I felt it was both Nicholas and gypsy. Even with all of the popularity surrounding this case, I still decided to do the podcast because I have been fascinated by this crime for a couple of years and my daughter made me promise her that I would. However, I hope you learned a little bit more about Gypsy rose, and that also wish that when Gypsy gets out of jail, she's able to live a normal life, which is something that she's never been able to do.
