* The assumption that she’s acting up “for attention” is a modern one. A woman in Mrs. Bennet’s circumstances could very much have been plunged into outright destitution in her circumstances, and every one of Austen’s early readers would have known that. She is ''legitimately'' afraid.

[[WMG: Mrs. Bennet has an anxiety/panic disorder.]]

I'm only putting this here because I believe I'll be laughed out of FridgeLogic, but Mrs. Bennet's descriptions of her symptoms sound an awful lot like a panic/anxiety attack, and she is demonstrably anxious about the idea of 'starving in the hedgerows'. Add to that that she just might be overwhelmed by the fact that she's gone from 'merchant class' to 'gentry', and not know what the heck to do in such a situation, and it seems reasonable to me.

School (that is, if they lived in the 20th century United States instead of Regency England).
