I really wish someone would sit her down and tell her what so many women and girls need to be told (and I needed to be told): you are not his mommy, you are not his therapist, you cannot change him. O

AND smile and keep sweet and be patient and nurturing etc. etc. etc. to a slimeball of sleeze. we talk a lot here about how fundamentalists are programmed to think a certain way, but i don't thin

If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me. ;-)

I can't wait to see the first photo of Josh. I hope he looks like crap. Yeah, I'm mean. I don't care.

I'll bet Josh has lost weight and some hair. Maybe he's even grown a beard.

I have a feeling he'll be very, very thin. So thin that we look at him and feel sorry for him, because he's clearly been suffering.

And all they need is one tiny gleam of sympathy to trickle through the mainstream media and blogs and before you know it we're getting a VSE named 'Joshly's Story'....

The previous discussion about how Anna wants to repair their relationship.  There is still the missing factor, does Josh?  It's all speculation till he actually says (or doesn't say), Anna I want to come home and work it out with you guys. It's always been about her asking Jesus to be strong, walking through this and that, never about Josh doing his part, as if Anna can just do it all on her own.  She must really think it was all her fault in the first place.

I don't think the beard-growing capabilities are strong with the Duggar boys.

I doubt this. Plus, even if he's thin/thinner, nobody compares to Derick!

For a family that posts every thought on social media - happy birthday from every sibling to every other sibling  I love you so much so glad you are out of rehab, etc etc - you'd think he'd actually have something to say.  Anna I missed you so much, I can't wait to get back home...  Anything at all. Such a wide open forum for him to try to get back in the good graces of the "audience."  So weird that there has not been one peep from him.

The family may not be giving him much access to the internet at all. Wasn't Mr. Smithson following a bunch of large breasted, MILF-y porn stars on social media?

They're probably telling him to keep his yap shut until/unless it's something approved by "The Collective"

It was the "evil Internet" that got him into the joshgate 2.0 mess to begin with, maybe he's scared to death of doing anything online at this point. Or Boob & DQ will beat him with a spoon if he gets off his blanket and logs on.

I seem to remember that after the visit with him back in November (?) Anna said something about how it had been the best three days of her life and they had talked and prayed together. So she has received some sign from him that he is going to work at things. 

I don't believe it is as simple as "she thinks it is all her fault."  There is no question that everyone in her community thinks it is Josh who transgressed and Josh on whom the greatest blame lies.  However, their cult does make her jointly responsible.  She "should have known" that something was troubling him, that Satan was tempting him, etc.  She feels that she failed to help him overcome temptation.  The sins of cheating and porn are on him, but if she had been the perfect wife the power of her supportive influence might have kept him from sin.  

Nuts, I agree,

She must be absolutely exhausted. Poor woman. She can't win - she must be alluring enough to keep him on the straight and narrow, but she must also be almost perpetually pregnant, and therefore tired by caring for a newborn, coping with pregnancy symptoms (nausea etc) and meanwhile run a home, provide meals, do laundry, homeschool older kids and look after preschoolers and toddlers.  This is beyond multitasking - it requires superhuman powers!

I would like to see Josh handle any three of the bolded. I foresee a giant fail.

and who wants to place bets now we see a pregnancy announcement very soon?

I am beginning to think that bets and guesses about Duggar pregnancies is a little like making  bets and guesses about the weather.  (And about equally exciting.) :kitty-wink:

I truly hope note. I'd prefer to see a castration announcement instead.

Definitely by this fall. That's how it usually goes with Anna anyways, but I imagine they will try to have more sex as a way of "helping" Josh. Plus, now that she's near the TTH, I imagine Anna will get more help with the kids from her poor unmarried sisters-in-law. JB and Michelle will likely want to encourage Josh and Anna to go out on dates fairly regularly as a means of keeping Josh in line.

No, no, no. Their marriage is a trainwreck. They don't need another baby! They've got four. Do you guys think Josh will abstain from sex a little bit or just jump right into it with Anna? After everything the two have gone through, does Josh even really want another kid to feed?

I don't think Josh wants another child, but Jesus Rehab and his parents no doubt told him he should want more children, so I expect at least one more before he slips again. This isn't something I'm hoping for, but given the situation, it's what's likely to happen.

Anna JUST had a baby. Why does she think another one will fix things when it didn't this time around?

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
