                          speculation IMO. but she might benefit from speech therapy - it's true that if she were speaking really fluently, Elena would definitely have videos of it.

                        that this is what being raised in a cult can do to you. Now people are angry that she is on welfare and talking as if she can obviously work and take care of herself - can't they see that her screaming mental health issues would prevent that? She may be choosing to hippie around the world but often peopel who make those choices can't really do much else.
