Has anyone ever discussed Patsy having this disease? There was clearly something going on with Burke and Jonbenet outside of the murder.

Hello!
I have pondered this thought before when factoring in the immense 27 visits to the doctor in a span of 3 years. I gave the idea of PR having the disease some intense thought, and I don't believe she has this disorder. However, I do believe she craves an enormous amount of attention and she would do anything to gain it. Such as exaggerating JB's illnesses in an effort to gain attention from medical experts. Their was an obvious power struggle in that house. When BR drew the picture of the family and left out JB compleat lay, it struck me as odd. It seems as though he was belittling his dead sister, but I don't think he was responsible for her death. He had to have learned that belittling attitude from somewhere and I believe the parents regularly demonstrated it. PR and her family were shown to have very animated personalities.

Of course MBP has been mentioned. I don’t see it though, Jonbenet did indeed have serious health issues, they weren’t fabricated symptoms. She suffered chronic sinus problems from exposure to chemicals used to bleach her hair along with genito-urinary issues from being sexually molested. Plus Patsy already had plenty of medical attention coming her way from ovarian cancer. She’d probably rather have the opposite in that regard.

ALSO

There is an obvious similar ‘psychiatric’ disorder in today’s society where parents seek accolades and attention through the accomplishments of their children. Patsy definitely had that going on with Jonbenet and the pageants. True prodigies have talents unrelated to endeavors of their parents. Whatever that disorder is, we’ve all seen it in children that work - athletes and actors - it has no legal definition in the mental health field, yet...

BUT

The medical visits and health records of Burke Ramsey were given an island of privacy preventing the truth about this family from surfacing. Jonbenet's case will never be closed unless the entire Burke situation is addressed. This 9 year old boy was not using the toilet, his feces were found in the victim’s bedroom. THAT’S AS BIG A SYMPTOM HE WAS SEXUALLY ABUSED AS IF HE HAD RECTAL HEMORRHAGING. Jonbenet’s autopsy showed she had been the victim of repeat sexual molestation with changes to the anatomy. Burke appears to also have been a victim of sexual abuse, most likely incest. That is the type of child angry and mad enough to strike out in rage. Anyway you look at it Jonbenet's head trauma was caused by a person full of hate, anger, and rage.

I don't know if it could be called a psychiatric disorder or not, but it's known as "living vicariously through one's children". No new thought here, it's been pointed out before. But there is an interesting article on some of the bad things that can happen when it is out of control (not to suggest that was the case with Patsy/JonBenet) here:
