full confession: It really bothers me when people insult Carol for being “weak” and stuff. Honestly it’s really unfair. She has been through hell: an abusive marriage, the death of her only child, and god knows what else. Just because she is quite, reserved, timid, and non-violent does NOT make her weak and useless. People grieve in many ways, and sometimes when you have lost your whole world you can’t find the motivation to get out of bed. She probably spent many years being called pathetic and useless by her husband and now doesn't know how to act any differently. I think people should have more respect for her, I think she is an amazingly strong woman for being able to hold it together this long in a world gone to shit.
