On The Young and the Restless, Abby Newman Abbott Chancellor owes Mariah Copeland the greatest debt of her life. Mariah did not just carry Abby’s son for her, but she also took care of him during weeks of kidnapped captivity, and then gave birth with no medical intervention and only Nate Hastings on Skype to guide Abby and Devon Hamilton.
The Young and the Restless’s Mariah Is Suffering From PTSD
Now, not for nothing, Mariah (Camryn Grimes) is suffering from a severe case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) noticed. Sharon Rosales (Sharon Case) noticed. Wouldn’t it be nice if Abby (Melissa Ordway) noticed? And did something about it. Here’s what almost 5,000 voters would like to see happen:
Help, I Need Somebody
Exactly half of you, 50%, are endorsing the obvious: Mariah needs therapy and she needs it sooner rather than later. Kidnapping alone is a trauma. Premature birth is a trauma. Giving up the child you carried is a trauma. Mariah has the hat trick. Abby was oh, so, so worried about Mariah’s health while she was little Dominic’s incubator. Now it’s time to show she still cares by making sure Mariah gets the mental health help she needs.
Drawing the Line on The Young and the Restless
And after Mariah gets therapy, then 45% of the audience would like to see Abby get on establishing boundaries. Mariah should certainly be allowed to visit the baby, but Abby needs to make it clear that she’s Mommy, and Mariah is the fun aunt who plays him funky music, calls him Bowie…and says bye-bye at the end of the visit.
Young and the Restless: Cut the Cord
Why peel the Band-Aid off slowly, 5% wonder. That only makes matters worse. Tell Mariah, “Thank you for your service, but get lost now, I need bonding time with my baby.” Mariah signed a contract. She isn’t biologically related to the child. Tessa and Sharon can take care of her. Abby has other stuff going on.
