My thoughts on everything, at this point, are pretty up in the air. At first, I had no doubt her mental illness was more severe than they were putting out (anxiety and OCD). It was obvious she had some sort of eating disorder, whether it was only a temporary issue or ongoing issue, but they never directly indicated that she even had an eating disorder. I also didn't believe she would/could stay at an inpatient mental facility for 10 days for anxiety and OCD, even the most extreme form. Outpatient care/counseling, yes, but 10 days inside a mental facility, no. I've always suspected there were much deeper issues... I just had a strange feeling about the entire thing. How does a girl in the picture perfect like HER PARENTS are portraying, go from that to where she's at now? It just doesn't make sense.
And obviously, the parents are very religious... the entire group is very religious, and the idea that someone is not religious does not cross their mind. I've never been asked if I wanted to pray, it was just assumed I did. They have bible versus printed out on computer paper and hung on the walls. That sort of put it over the top for me. I don't know.
Another thing I felt was a bit off... everyday they've been starting at 5am because that's "when she's most active." Well yesterday, out of the blue, they just decided not to start until 6am. I guess it's not a huge deal, but I just felt that was weird because just one day before they said she could have been taken to Oakland for human trafficking, so it didn't seem like the best day to lose an hour, and 2) I don't think I'd want to lose an hour, no matter what, if it was my daughter.
Lastly, they seem adament in finding her themselves. When I've gone out, it's always been told that if we see her, we are to call the tip line, and even once, I was told to call a specific family members' phone directly. That was strange to me.
