Like many people, they were distressed about their financial circumstances; but, of course, they had real financial difficulties, so these worries were not unfounded. Little Edie did show significant distress in other ways, though. She was angry and resentful about having to be a full-time caretaker for her mother, and the film Grey Gardens clearly portrays this: When Big Edie yells for Little Edie to return to her side, Little Edie says in front of the camera, “I’ve been a subterranean prisoner here for 20 years” (Maysles & Maysles, 1976).

The converse is also true: The absence of distress doesn’t necessarily indicate the absence of a psychological disorder. A person can have a psychological disorder without experiencing distress, although it is uncommon. For instance, someone who chronically abuses stimulant medication, such as amphetamines, may not feel distress about misusing the drug but that person nonetheless has a psychological disorder (specifically, a type of substance use disorder). Did either Big Edie or Little Edie exhibit distress?

I could not begin to follow the material presented in my classes. . It was very frightening . . [my mind] no longer found anything interesting or enjoyable or worthwhile. It was incapable of concentrated thought and turned time and time again to the subject of death: I was going to die, what difference did anything make? Life’s run was only a short and meaningless one, why live? I was totally exhausted and could scarcely pull myself out of bed in the mornings. . I wore the same clothes over and over again, as it was otherwise too much of an effort to make a decision about what to put on.
