Oh, they captured that just fine. It's the "why" that they've failed dismally on. Unless you've got a degree in psychology or the drive to spend a few hours digging on WebMD just for fun, you're left with the choice of her just being generically fucked up or a complete bitch. Neither of which is good for the character, the show, or your desires for education.
Actually, I'd argue that you just need some basic understanding of human psychology.

If someone behaves in an extreme way - it's usually really bad writing - or there's a very good reason for it.

It's never about "just being a bitch" or "just being fucked up".

But again, it requires the viewer to actually care about human psychology

Certainly a possibility. Subtle wouldn't be considered a trait of my carefully constructed online persona.
It would not, no
