That would be like saying if you went to a 2 hour dinner banquet, that it consist solely of constantly shoving food in your mouth for the entire 2 hour duration, start to finish. There are steps involved, often very complex rituals.
Interesting they both wear occult symbol jewelry on their bodies. "Our bodies felt hijacked". People flock to Harry Potter and other movies showing the power that stuff can have but scoff at the concept of spiritual forces tormenting people.
I'm just so blown away by a lot of these comments. Are you guys doctors? Why, just because you don't understand something, do you find it okay to disregard it? I'm going to assume that most of you don't have a degree. I don't either so that's why I would never in a million years call these girls names, or shame the mother. The existence of these girls sounded like pure hell and in other interviews that I've seen, It looked as if the single mother did the best she could do. I pray that these girls are resting in peace and that their mom does what she spoke of doing when they were alive and advocating for mental illness. What a truly sad story.
May they finally Rest In Peace. Earlier this week they were found dead. It was either a double suicide or a murder/suicide. Their mother lost both her parents in the last year and now her daughters. Praying for their mothers peace. 😔
Sara and Amanda Eldritch had long-term, severe obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD. The twin sisters died on March 30, in what police say was either a double suicide or murder-suicide. ( article from buzzfeed) they died on March 30th
Someone needs to tell them that a bar of soap is not sterilized, and that the air is always dirty. The only way to get clean is to jump into a ball of fire for 5 minutes to kill all microorganisms. It's not good to be to clean, because it will hinder your immune system response, which will make you get sick. The oil on your body is there for a reason to help keep pathogen from entering your body. They need to take a special class on this. Then they will realize that they are doing more damage than good.
There is some truth to what you said, like in ERP, (Exposure Response Prevention) therapy. Don't enable by not contributing to the behavior. It is more complex than this though and you may want to look ERP therapy up.
This story's so sad bc they just committed suicide together.. My OCD was starting to get severe when I was a child and I made myself get over it. It's a unique feeling that you have to work to get past. Not to trivialize it, though. This is a very very extreme case. And instead of helping each other it seems like they enabled each other. There comes a point when you have to force yourself to stop. You have to create the willpower and strength. I feel bad they didn't get the proper help before it was too late.. an entire lifetime of this
I think the mother was another idiot/poc parent. She should have been attempting to change their behavior when it took 45 minutes to put shoes on. Or allowing them to just stay in the shower and scrub the hell out of their skin. She’s a nut job herself. Enabled their behavior to get attention from others.
the girls have apparently been found dead in what may have been a suicide pact.
rest easy girls, i'm sorry this life was as unbearable as it was :( and i hope you both experienced some happiness while you were here. <3
People with OCD must understand that their fears are *irrational* and do not have scientific validity. Proper parenting, education and psychotherapy are the keys to overcoming it, not just the "quick fixes" like popping pills. Their deaths could have been prevented.
Amanda Sumner In the past, it was estimated it took nine years before someone sought help. Ocd can creep up on you gradually and you either don't realize it until it's well established or too ashamed to admit it. Hopefully, with more awareness today, sufferers seek treatment earlier.
lifestraight my thing is mom enabled it from a very young age with them. Allowing them to ruminate on the ‘perfection’ of socks and shoes, allowing them to start a pattern of going to the extreme with it, allowing the long ass showers and scrubbing the hell out of their skin. She should have been teaching coping mechanisms and distractions when they were little instead of just letting them fixate.
If they had just eaten mushrooms 6 days a week for about a year they would have been just fine for a fraction of the price. Even better than they are now, I'm sure. Followed up by some molly and cocaine for a few months... these bitches would have come out just fine.
Amanda Sumner No, parents give in to their children's odd demands to keep the peace. But, this is not to cater to some spoiled child. Their children are suffering and they don't know how to respond. Family therapy is the appropriate intervention when the family is pulled into this debilitating illness. Nobody wants ocd.
Jake Beasley I ABSOLUTELY AGREE. That stupid mother of theirs just fed into the behavior when she should have been helping them set up ways to deal with the ocd. I think she fed into it to receive attention from others. Munchausen
I feel more sorry for the people that are imprisoned by these kinds of people; speaking from first hand experience. Their compulsions come before anybody else. Totally self-serving people that will wreck your life along with theirs if allowed to do so.
Sound like a long time live-in experience with an OCD afflicted individual. I will agree, it must be difficult, however selfishness is often a coping mechanism forged out of helplessness and desperation. I can say that with certainty.
These twins succumbed to a murder-suicide. What torture they experienced all their lives. So unfortunate the treatment didn't help well enough. Hopefully Deep Brain Stimulation will help others. On a side note, most the comments here are vapid.
I wonder how she dealt with getting her cheeks pierced, I have mine pierced but a lot lower and when I first got them done they were leaking pus and got infected a lot. I’ve had them for over a year and they still get infected every once in a while, shits nasty idk how she put up with it
How about this, if we were able to we would gladly trade our afflictions and limitations resulting in allowing us to do what many others take for granted for your desire to stay home and not "have to " do anything. It will quickly learned though by the person who wanted their "liberation from responsibility" that the question will be not so much, "what do I not have to do?", but will be instead, "what (little) can I do.

When I was a kid, I had very mild OCD like if I itch my right leg, I had the urge to itch my left leg in the exact same spot even if it wasn't itching and that's just one of the examples ... also like if I had 2 pencils and I put one facing directly infront of me and the other one wasn't, I'd make that one face directly Infront of me because it felt uncomfortable.. but it went away when I was about 8-9
