Gypsy Rose Blanchard-Anderson has shared a baby photo, which was taken before she went through years of abuse from her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard.

As you may know, Gypsy Rose Blanchard-Anderson is believed to have been a victim of Munchausen by proxy, a physiological disorder that investigators claim Dee Dee had.

Throughout many years of Gypsy's life, Dee Dee had convinced her daughter, family members, friends, and even medical personnel, that Gypsy Rose had many illnesses, disorders, and diseases, including asthma, epilepsy, vision impairments, and more.

Dee Dee went as far as claiming Gypsy was paralyzed from the waist down, which resulted in her "needing a wheelchair" for mobility, and that she "needed a feeding tube" -- which they later found out was not true.

At one point, Dee Dee's abuse became physical, as she chained Gypsy Rose to a bed for two weeks as a punishment for sneaking out of the house.

Gypsy Rose felt there was no way out besides killing her mother, so she and her then-boyfriend came up with a plan, which they carried out in 2015. Gypsy ended up going to prison for her involvement in her mother's murder. Her then-boyfriend is serving life in prison.

Last month, she was released on parole and has been posting on social media ever since.
