What's on her chin? I don't remember seeing anything there before. Also, is that a faint bruise on her lower-right jaw?

Janessa has a fast food bag on her head so I'm guessing that mess on her face is food.  Jill just wants to show the world that she is not starving her kids.

As far as the rings, Jill just wants to show off her jewelry.

There's been a lot of that since Timmybot's desperate post explaining how the kids are given more food at home than they can possibly eat. As if. 

The kids are apt to come back from Florida heavier since other people are providing the food. Jill and David don't mind if the kids eat; they just don't want to spend their own money on the servants.

Nice fried hair picture of Jill’s oldest slaves. How about the young ladies go to the coffee shop and Jill takes care of the herd she and Shrek insisted having with no income? Asking for two fried haired friends.

This picture is so sad to me because this really is their lives. Sing in church, perform in church and sit in church. Churches filled with strangers. If they're lucky a family or two (who they don't know) will show them a good time in between. I can't imagine a less fulfilling life than the lives of the JRod kids.

The Maxwells have more money than Jill, so do the Mallys. (Sarah Mally is the woman who wrote Before You Meet Prince Charming.)

Being single doesn't make your life less fulfilling even if you're fundie. Sarah Mally seemed happy enough as a single woman, and now she's getting married (May 2nd) and she still seems happy.  Plenty of women aren't fulfilled even when they are married and have children and are fundies.

 All the money in the world doesn’t mean anything if you have to live their lifestyle. I am however happy that Sarah is getting married.  I’m sure she’ll become a marriage expert and write a sequel book.

I don't their lifestyle is that bad. I think being a fundie is hard and not great, no matter what.  But these women have enough for their basic needs and they don't have twenty plus years of pregnancy to go through. Of course there's a prejudice against single women even in the secular world.

Speaking of the Maxwells, Anna Marie apparently went somewhere in the vicinity of Lady Liberty to get her surgery. There are several legit places to get laser removal of breast cancer so who knows where she went.

She was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer. It is a severe diagnosis, but it could be worse.  She also is meeting with her oncologist on Monday, which is great. I'm glad she has an ocologist and isn't just meeting with random doctors.

When she had the surgery, they ended up taking out a larger area than they had anticipated. 

"Surgery went very well, though due to the continued growth and location of the tumor, the surgeon recommended a more extensive surgery than we were originally hoping for. Christopher and I understood the necessity and agreed that it was best the approach at this point."

I'm confused as to how they don't know whether all the cancer is removed. Here is the end of Duggar Data's post about it:

"Anna Marie also shared more detail about her laser surgery. Apparently, they aren’t sure that the entire tumor was successfully removed. She explained—

“ ‘Margins’ refers to how much clean tissue surrounded the tumor when the surgeon removed it. Because of its size and location, mine had a very small margin—but we don’t yet know if that means there were cancer cells left.”

Sounds like maybe she will have to undergo another surgery."

It seems the Lord has a long history of hanging out as odd places.  Think of the people who have found the Lord in jail or prison. Some claim to have found him at the bottom of a bottle of Johnny Walker. Now he’s gallivanting around Walmart. No wonder the world is falling apart. Lord, find a church and help us with this corona virus mess. Also, there’s a lot of kids held in cages, worse than what the Rod kids are experiencing.

The Lord may have been stocking up on supplies. He's worried the JRods will get sick and infect the entire east coast.

No. Jill R is a complete control freak. I grew up with some of those. They will not leave anyone alone. They must be meddling at all times. They will hunt you down and pry into what you're doing as fast as they can get there if you ever manage to sneak away into another room, even briefly.

And preventing you from having any friends outside the family or any contrary influences at all, such as in books, is a big part of the control -- which is one of the purposes served by both the Rods' homeschooling and their endless traveling. The way the Rods' mother treats them is normalized for the kids because they have only the most minimal knowledge of anybody who isn't treated in exactly the same way. 

They don't even conceive of a situation in which they aren't constantly tracked and nagged. In my family, if you shifted your weight from one side to the other when you were sitting in a chair, you'd hear "What's the matter with you? Quit your fidgeting!"

Imagine even noticing someone in the room with you shifting their weight to their other leg, let alone barking at them about it. And yet....That's the life of those girls.

One or more of them may at least have a suspicion by now that the way they live is uncomfortable and infuriating.

Given that they've had only the most superficial exposure to other people, though, I think it's unlikely they can actually envision a daily life different in any way from theirs. It's also quite possible that none even allow themselves to recognize any negative feelings they have about their lives......The guilt that's drummed into them and those horrible painted-on rictus smiles they're programmed to repeatedly assume may effectively blot out any recognition of their own feelings, I think. 

It's a horror movie.

It’s my belief that Jill genuinely is mentally ill. From the Cleveland Clinic’s description of histrionic personality disorder:

“Most commonly noted symptoms are:

The person seeks attention

Talks dramatically with strong opinions

Is influenced easily

Thinks relationships are closer than they are

Rapid shifts in emotion

No thinking before acting

Inappropriately seductive or flirtatious behavior

Self-centered.”

I would throw in a generous helping of narcissism as well, as long as I’m armchair diagnosing.

IMO, JimBob and Michelle are just your garden-variety utterly self-absorbed control freaks. It’s my belief JimBob knows exactly what he’s doing.

But Jill is on a whole other level.

I also feel pretty strongly that Jill has some type of personality disorder. Histronic is probably most accurate.

It was probably some kid who was working there and thus couldn't tell Jill to fuck off. If Jill or someone like her approached me while I was shopping and wouldn't take a polite 'not interested' and back off, I'd tell them to get out of my way and leave me alone. And I wouldn't be polite about it either.

Jill may indeed have a personality disorder. If you know what to look for, it doesn't take too much time with a disordered person to spot it. Unfortunately (or fortunately!), we don't spend time with Jill to know exactly what's going on.

It may be that Jill just feels inherently inferior, so she "ups" her value by controlling people, relishing other people's faults, successfully soliciting vanity gifts, and throwing herself into activity that she believes will bring her god's favor. This is equally sad because she's raising her children to feel unworthy too by not educating them, making the girls cake on makeup to feel desirable, physically abusing them (likely), and creating a narrative that they live in a dangerous world controlled by a judgmental god. 

My mother's mother was likely a full-blown borderline. My mother was not, but she was severely damaged by the way she was raised and passed on the problems. In any case, it stinks. 

I used to be rude to people who tried to convert me, but I realized that just feeds into their expectations of being persecuted for their beliefs. Now, I just ignore them or respond with a puzzled or blank look on my face as if I don't speak English or have no capacity to comprehend what they're rambling on about. That frustrates the hell out of them.

Right now, Jill is beside herself with joy over Nathan and all she thinks he represents. But her feelings may change when she realizes that this marriage is NOT going to be the golden ticket to the Duggar inner circle that she thinks it is. She sees Nurie becoming BFFs with Anna, Jessa,  Jana, Joy, etc. and using that to worm her own way into the TTH. But there's no indication that Anna is at all close to her brother, Nathan (they may not even see each other more than once or twice a year) or will make any effort to take his new bride under her wing. And the Duggars have never had any interest in befriending anyone from Anna's family (they often seem to barely tolerate Anna herself), except for her sister, Priscilla, whom they embrace because she's married to a high-ranking IBLP official. The Duggars are snobs and opportunists; they only care about people who can be useful to them or whose association will reflect well on them. They're never going to allow Jill Rod or any of her family anywhere near their citadel, especially when the cameras are rolling. 

She may also be in for another disappointment. Right now, the Kellers are being generous and hospitable, but eventually the Rods are going to wear out their welcome.  Once Nurie is married to Nathan, the Kellers may draw her into their family circle and firmly close the door in her mother's face.

Okay, so it had slipped my mind that Nathan is Anna’s brother, not least because I could pick random two strangers off the street with more resemblance to each other.

So... I didn’t even know the Rods existed until recently (life was better not knowing). Has Jill always been such a shameless climber or is this relatively new?

If she thinks all her sucking up and fictional random grocery aisle conversions are going to win her way into Blessed Duggardom, she’s in for a huge disappointment. She should ask Derick just how real that “ministry” is....

I almost feel sorry for her. 

Then I look at all those poor skinny ignorant kids and I’m over it.

Jill's always been like this. It's just worse now that she has more social media (she used to just blog with photo dumps). She's been in the Duggars' doghouse ever since she posted Jinger's wedding invitation online. That's how the paps got there.
