Background information and notes

  • Based on the case of Mary Jane Boot, who suffered Munchausen by Proxy syndrome. As a child, Mary's mother abused her in order to gain attention and approval from others. When she was 10 years old, she finally confronted her mother and demanded the abuse to end. To her surprise, it did, but the emotional scars remained until she sought counseling several years later.
