Duggar fans think Anna is struggling, issuing a “secret cry for help” on Twitter amid husband Josh Duggar’s imprisonment.
The Counting On alum has stuck by her man’s side, even after he was found guilty on child pornography charges.
While Anna has been quiet on social media in the wake of the scandal involving her husband, fans still spot “clues” in the few things she does post.
Recently, Duggar fans spotted something telling in the mom of seven’s Twitter likes.
She “liked” a post from Tucker Carlson about anti-depressants, which fans think is her way of showing that she’s struggling.
The tweet on Anna’s page was grabbed and shared on Reddit, where fans theorized about its meaning.
More on Anna
Noting that her bio states that she’s “happily married,” one user wrote: “At this point, she’s not happily anything. Certainly not happily raising 7 children alone. Oh, well maybe happily not being joyfully available for Pest.”
Another commented: “I’m reading this as a projection really. She’s depressed and was thinking of the options.
“But come hell or high water, she’s not taking pills. So rail against the one thing that could be offered, aside from, you know, leaving her pervert husband.”
Anna hasn’t said that she is struggling, but things certainly haven’t been easy for her in the wake of her husband’s arrest.

The former 19 Kids and Counting star is currently serving his sentence at FCI Seagoville in Texas.
The Sun can exclusively reveal the former 19 Kids and Counting star has been slapped with a $50,100 lien for restitution by the state in his child pornography case.
When Josh was sentenced in May, he was ordered to pay a lump sum of $50,100 due “immediately.”
According to the judgment, if the payment is not paid immediately, “any unpaid financial penalty shall be paid by the defendant during his term of imprisonment at a rate of up to 50% of the defendant’s available funds, in accordance with the Inmate Financial Responsibility Program.”
Many of the Duggars have been outspoken about Josh’s crimes and more on social media.
Anna has largely been silent.
She did, however, speak out by way of a letter to Judge Timothy L. Brooks, who was in charge of Josh’s sentencing.
In the letter obtained by The Sun, Anna wrote: “Joshua has worked hard to provide for me and our (now) seven children.
“My children and I rely on Joshua for financial, emotional, and physical support. Many others depend on Joshua, too.”
The Duggar family pastor’s widow Denise Wilson also described Anna’s distress in a recent phone call while pleading with the judge for leniency in Josh’s case.
Denise told the judge in her own letter that Josh had helped support her and her nine children financially after the death of her husband.
She said that support was cut off following Anna’s emotional phone call.
In the letter to the judge which was filed on Tuesday, Denise wrote: “Recently, Anna called crying saying they’re not able to do this now because of their situation, despite how much they wanted to continue to support me.

“Josh told me he and Anna were going to support me and my family monthly to keep up my finances. When he told me how much it would be. I was shocked. It was a gracious amount.
“Josh acted as if it was just a natural thing to do. He told me ‘We’re just doing what the Bible says… to have pure religion is to visit the Fatherless and Widows in their affliction.'”
You’re not alone
SUICIDE is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Leading Causes of Death Report from 2018.
There were “more than two and half times as many suicides” in the US than there were homicides, according to the report.
For people ages 10 and 34, suicide was the “second leading cause of death” and the fourth for individuals ages 35 to 54.
Suicide is a vital health concern in the U.S. It affects all genders, races and ages.
