Uh, guys, I think this.. thing, idk, anyway, she's kinda well-known.
I mean she has her own Wikipedia page for supposed work on autism.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanda_Baggs
I think she's kind of sweet.
It's pretty amazing what she's capable of despite having low-functioning autism. Especially considering what others can be like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4PTf7LgsIE
File: 1448017769787.png (667.63 KB, 704x665, sdisdii.png)
damn, I wonder who wrote that page
I agree. What strikes me as strange is the fact that she uses a voice synthesiser instead of speaking, even though she is more than capable of speech, and that she claims to have a plethora of illnesses.
Can you just get pcos? Cuz in the video >>207425
She doesn't have any facial hair
This thread seems to be focused on her hideous appearance, which is understandable, but that's actually not the worst thing about her.
She is faking autism. Not the high functioning "I'm socially awkward and obsessed with anime" kind of autism, but the full retard, can barely speak or wipe their own ass, kind of autism. She claims to have an IQ of 85 even though she writes more intelligently than the average person, and has produced videos where she appears to be severely disabled: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnylM1hI2jc
However… she does not have autism or mental retardation. Accounts from former acquaintances here http://abaggs.blogspot.ca/
reveal that she attended a high school for gifted kids and went to college. She appeared intelligent and socially normal during this time.
Sometime during college she started doing a lot of acid and went nuts. She was given a diagnosis of schizophrenia. This is the only one of her diagnoses that seems legitimate. While schizophrenia can be disabling it would not produce any of the autism-like symptoms that she claims to suffer from. It is impossible to develop autism in adulthood, by definition it is a developmental condition.
She has claimed to have other disorders before, such as multiple personality disorder and manic depression, but later retracted those claims.
It's fucked up. She is pretending to be retarded and literally shitting in diapers to get attention/money. She's selling false hope to the parents of actual autistic children. She's more of a horrorcow than a lolcow.
tl;dr Amanda Baggs is a relatively normal person pretending to be a low-functioning autistic.
wtf this is Amanda Baggs? lol, I had no fucking idea she was so ugly. I think I saw pictures of her earlier where she wasn't so ugly. What the fuck happened? I mean, plenty of people get to be obese but did she purposely develop PCOS too? I have no fucking idea!
Anyways fuck her and thanks for bringing this to light.
Another one: http://autismfraud.blogspot.com/2008/02/letter-about-amanda-baggs-fraud.html?m=1
Seems like the height of her "fame" was in 2008 and she's still getting away with it. She's even added new disabilities.

and maybe she used to shave/care for her appearance?
also she looked less fat before too and obesity aggrevates PCOS

perhaps a face like that is hiding under all that fat and bad hygiene
we will never know, because she won't change
Fair enough, but I think she could still try and manage her weight. I think the family/doctors are trying to, maybe that's why the feedbag is there.
Also, she doesn't strike me as schizo. No offence, but they tend to write like asha.
The group posts from after she'd been off of LSD for a while read like a creative writing project. One even had a poem in it that she supposedly heard from the elves. Given her later history, it wouldn't surprise me at all if she no longer had honest schizo symptoms at that point but kept it up for attention/to look hardcore. The different psychologists she went to afterwards might have trusted that the earlier diagnosis and didn't question it. Her experiences on LSD plus her interactions with patients online would have made her good at faking.
Also, I don't know much about schizophrenia but do the delusions usually relate so strongly to your interests? She was a sci-fi / fantasy nerd even before any of this started and the whole "I'm really an elf named Nightsong" thing reminds me of otherkin and 11 year old Lord of the Rings fans. Like, my great-aunt was schizophrenic and she just heard crying babies and thought God told her to give all her money to some crazy church.
the feedbag is for her gastropariesis, where the stomach muscles don't contract or something to aid digestion
so it's kind of amazing how she's so fucking fat
seriously why does this fat bitch need a feeding tube?
so she can have some vitamins or fruits/vegetables in her diet while she scarfs down McDonalds 24/7?
I was curious about why she'd have a feeding tube when she's so fat so I googled "feeding tube but fat" and the first result was this: https://ballastexistenz.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/fat-people-and-feeding-tubes/

hey anon don't know how much you dislike the hair but I thought I would tip in
if you thread away the hair, after several threading sessions it won't grow back. if you tweeze, wax or shave then it will
but again that's if you don't mind the hair or your current methods
sorry for being OT
Holy shit it is her. I love that not where she admits she lost weight by eating less, but then claims she gained it all back by eating 'like the average person' because 'thats human physiology ' bull fucking shit

Turns out she's a hypochondriac and that doctors hate her (im reading her wordpress)
Every now and then she likes to come up with a new disease and balks when a doctor says nope I'm not putting you on meds for this.
That shit looks so dirty.
Isn't that a huge risk having something like that get grimy?
she claims that she had to fight the doctors for it: http://withasmoothroundstone.tumblr.com/post/46772164821/so-i-get-woken-up-at-seven-someting-innthenmorning
also in this post she's saying that her problem is that aspirating food. if that's the case, she shouldn't be eating anything at all, because it could go into her lungs and cause life-threatening infections. but if you search for food on her blog she talks about compulsive eating and eating candy… http://withasmoothroundstone.tumblr.com/post/92609441030/yesterday-you-posted-about-food-coincidentally-i
- also here she's claiming that she has gastroparesis as well…
>>207482>For what it’s worth, right now I weigh 178 pounds.
lol bitch is lying like a motherfucker. One of those blogs exposing her puts her height at around 5'2" and if she were that height and weight she'd look sort of like this; http://www.mybodygallery.com/search.html?gender=female&height=157&age=any&weight=82&pantSize=any&shirtSize=any&bodytype=
this mountainous creature has got to be at least 280lb+
literally shaking rn
I trawled through her blog at least a year ago, I don't want to search for the things I found, but I know she eats candy and then removes it from her stomach via the peg tube, into what she has labelled as the "burp cup"
She also uses this burp cup for removing excess stomach acid. Also I seem to recall at some point she threw up and shit all over her friends apartment.

Not that Anon but there's no way that's true. Worth trying though, I suppose.
I have the same problem and the only thing that's helped is laser hair removal. I haven't been able to afford more sessions to completion, sadly. If threading several times would've saved me I'd have been all over it, way cheaper.
Lol tbh i sorta agree
some people just have that smelly look
It's probably because they're sick of the sight of this bitch. Pisses me off these types of fat cripples who always try the sympathy card. I get she's got a shit bag stuck to her and I get that it can't be helped (I've seen attractive people with them too and I understand they need it) but fuck sake.
I get the feeling she's one of those who turn up at the doctors office almost every monday morning, probably for a general conversation more than anything before leading it down the path of "i also have ____ btw" and the doctor just sat there sighing not daring to roll their eyes.
Shame they can't attach rockets to her wheel chair, send her somewhere else. Then she really will shit herself!
Her response to the controversy. Okay, sure, she's weird enough to have autism, but that's only one of her many diagnoses. How was someone who is mute, severely disorganized, lacks control of their bowels, has several caretaker visits per day and needs close access to machines to keep them alive accepted to an early college program? How does someone like that even attend school? Even if she dropped out, someone
thought she was capable. She and her parents thought so or else she wouldn't have gone. How did she go from being "normal" enough to attend school to being physically incapable of leaving her house or washing her own ass?
I wonder that too you know. Reckon she didn't just get a poo bag after an operation and then blagged to the government about some other "illnesses" in exchange of benefits tho? That's what the majority would and do here in the UK. Abuse the system like crazy.
I remember this girl from my high school, she was a bit like this minger tbh. Fat, short, manly, glasses, didn't speak and sounded like a man with a deep voice. Very anti-social and a complete cunt when everyone had finished feeling sorry for her.
From the first year of high school, she didn't make friends she would just sit on her own and she was one of those where people felt sorry for her so they were automatically nice to her.
She was a bit of a possessive cling-on to a friend of mine and wanted her all to herself. We'd all comment on this and she would get defensive, but walk away crying, pretend she had panic attacks and tell us all about her "illnesses" kek.
Then one day, I was walking to my class on the stairs when it was quiet and she was there at the top. She said after I had passed her… "You know, I've always been a pretty good actor."
I remember turning around and saying "What?"
and she goes "Yeah, that's right. They fell for it, that gag I pulled. You did too, ha."
I just nodded like really slowly.
Then she walks closer to me twiddling her umbrella. "You guys really think I have autism don't you? Well, you're wrong. I'm just a good actress, my mother always told me so. I think I'm a pretty good too."
Then she walks away with this cunt smirk on her face.
God, I still hate the bitch even after six years of not seeing her troll face.
Good find. Her acquaintances have stated that in college, she started doing huge amounts of psychedelic drugs and had a psychotic episode. I don't doubt that her mental health severely deteriorated at that time. However, she seems to be recovered now. Her writing is logical and even eloquent, and she doesn't seem to have any psychotic thought patterns (well.. besides pretending to be a low-functioning autistic). Definitely not what you'd expect from someone with a catastrophic case of schizophrenia.
It's definitely not autism - adult onset autism is simply not a thing. It is a developmental disorder by definition.
The impression I've gotten from reading her blog and her friends' accounts is something like this:
Amanda starts out as an intelligent and developmentally normal young woman. She has some emotional issues and is a bit socially awkward. In college she starts doing way too much acid and shrooms. She has a psychotic episode, gets committed and is diagnosed with schizophrenia. She finds out that she enjoys the attention she gets for being "sick". When her psychosis is under control, she begins faking various illnesses online (this is documented on the blogspot). She takes an interest in a low functioning autistic girl (also documented) and begins to pretend to have autism herself, even though her claims make no fucking sense. She's getting off on pity and her own helplessness.
Sorry for the long post, I just find this freak interesting. It's all so fucked up.
Kek, this is the only real disorder she hashttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munchausen_syndrome
>Munchausen syndrome is a psychiatric factitious disorder wherein those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to themselves. It is also known as hospital addiction syndrome, thick chart syndrome, or hospital hopper syndrome.
>In Munchausen syndrome, the affected person exaggerates or creates symptoms of illnesses in themselves to gain examination, treatment, attention, sympathy, and/or comfort from medical personnel. In some extreme cases, people suffering from Munchausen's syndrome are highly knowledgeable about the practice of medicine and are able to produce symptoms that result in lengthy and costly medical analysis, prolonged hospital stay and unnecessary operations.
What I think is crazy is the multiple accounts saying she was extremely gifted.
Like it might not have been the greatest school, but she goes to college at 15? That's definitely some higher intelligence there.
Honestly I agree with you I think that she enjoyed the pity and attention she got so much from her psychotic episodes that she decided to alter her entire lifestyle to that.

I can imagine. I was in a gifted class. Most gifted class kids are pretty well insufferable and just don't know or care how to deal with other people. So then imagine taking a bunch of gifted class kids and putting them in some boarding school in the woods somewhere, which is actually a college so they feel really smart and important. You get all that weird insufferable gifted kid bullshit, but in an echo chamber with far less outside influence than normal gifted classes would have.>>207383
Ew. I feel like if she spoke her voice would sound like she was talking through mucus. That's the impression I get form her photos. Like an always tired sort of sighing talking through boogers sort of voice. Thank god she just uses a spoopy computer to speak for her.
I was almost put into a gifted school, but my parents wanted me to stay in public school because it cost less. I'm still pretty happy it ended up that way.

All bullshit. She LOVES being sick and having medical devices and tons of medications and multiple hospital visits… She has Munchausen's.
She is literally addicted to hospitals and being sick all the time!! All y'all keep picking at her looks and weight? She's like the craziest bitch who is faking medical disorders who goes on and on about how NECESSARY and CRUCIAL her tube is to hide the fact she faked and exageratted (possibly hurt herself on purpose to show symptoms) the disorder to get the tube so she can go online and gloat in her rather eloquent and intelligent typing style about how SICK she is and how she has about 30 different physical, internal, mental, developmental disorders.
No one is this sick. She's like the most insane cow ever and y'all bitch about her weight?
Stop sucking on that dry teat and drink the real milk.
She had a bf??
>drink the real milk.
Sounds pretty nasty in this case
schizophrenic here, can confirm delusions will occasionally relate to interests. not always, though. i've had delusions relating to my interests before, but usually they're things relating to paranoia or grandeur because that's pretty much standard.>>207467
some of us legitimate schizos on this hellhole called the internet do go back and edit what we type. The only reason my writing doent look like it's from a brain-damaged 7 year old is because i try to fix most of the typos i make. though if i didnt go back and fix things i can guarantee my writing would be nearly illegible .
I still can't wrap my head around that someone inserted a g/j tube for no good reason if she really doesn't have gastroperesis.
Also the PCOS, sleep apnea and the aspiration is most likely due to the weight. I do not believe she has brochiestasis at all. She doesn't mention respiratory therapy and CPT.
Probably PCOS. Other anons have said if she lost weight it would go away, but I've seen fitter gals with PCOS who still were dealing with facial hair.
Of course if she wasn't so hellbent on being a special snowflake she could get rid of it, but there's that too.>>207688>someone who is mute, severely disorganized, lacks control of their bowels, has several caretaker visits per day and needs close access to machines to keep them alive
but also>still manages to be an activist
Yeah I don't get how people around her aren't seeing major red flags with that. If she has it together enough to be a disability rights activist and to advocate for herself, then she's not nearly as delayed as she's playing it off to be. When you see kids that bad off being advocated for, it's always the parents who are doing it, but no, somehow she's managing on her own? I don't believe it.>>207570
Lol I had a friend like yours too. "fit for work" when it was convenient for her, but "unfit for work" (and would brag about it and actually go out and celebrate whenever she got that decision from ATOS) when it wasn't. She said she had panic attacks and PTSD, and would talk about it all the time, but never actually show symptoms (probably did to the ATOS people though when she needed to) and could go for nights out and shows and shit like that just fine. Because I guess it was work that triggered
her? I dunno. I actually deal with PTSD, anxiety, and panic attacks, and tbh most of us dealing with this shit just want to go to work and live a normal life like anyone else. It's really shite too to see people like her and your high school acquaintance work so hard to milk the system when there are actual disabled people who need the money and are having trouble getting it, again because ATOS says they can work. ATOS seems incompetent and there are too many malingerers, and people dealing with actual challenges get fucked over because of this. I'd probably report mine to DWP tbh, but I'm no longer in contact with her, and that's really for the best.
Same anon, but wanted to add how easy it can be to get certain diagnoses if the family is onboard, like her mom was. Munchausen's syndrome by proxy highlights this.
Here's a good example of how far it can go: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1245241/Lisa-Hayden-Johnson-Mother-sent-healthy-son-school-wheelchair-year-scam-prove-sickest-boy-Britain-facing-jail.html
Oh I know anon, I agree and I haven't even seen her from school since either you know. Good and I'm glad. But in the workplace it's different, you can holla "i gots depresshon" and they can't touch you.
bloody ridiculous it is
I love you too anon. But seriously, she is insane. She probably has some stomach issues but has in typical Munchausen's form she would have exaggerated her symptoms. She wrote a huge blog all about it and how sick she was and how everything is wrong with her.
She's not this sick. She doesn't have autism. She takes swlfiea looking vacant and covered in facial hair because it's all "evidence" of how she's super disabled and sick and special.
No low functioning autistic person has such a good grasp of medical terminology and eloquent speech. It's all Munchausen's.

I'm like nearly spoopy skeleton sized but my really average america's best frames dig into my skull, and I can't imagine that ppl who are grotesquely obese like her wouldn't complain about how oppressive that is.>>207417

She even has dem crazy eyes
A lot of women do this, to the extent of even killing their kids. There was one that kept having babies and making them look ill with arsenic and then killing them, after 4 died people grew suspicious. Exhumation showed arsenic in their tiny bodies. Oldest kid was like 3 or something. 3 years of being poisoned. Can you imagine?
He didn't develop much speech, but he would show a lot of unexplained frustration esp when the mother was aaround and especially when she tried to be affectionate. The poor kid knew something was up.
I said a lot of women, i dont mean it loterally but in the sense that more than you'd think
There was also that pediatric nurse too who killed babies/kids with insulin
I have gastroparesis. It's nasty. You literally cannot overeat without puking or ending up in bed wishing you were dead.
But it looks like she's got other things wrong that contribute to her weight. But if she's eating so much with gastroparesis then she must be eating through the pain or has become used to it. Prescription medication like Ultram really helps. It's possible she's on something for stomach pains and nausea and just ignores the other symptoms.
I see a post about a feeding tube. I don't think you can get fat on those. Not unless you are eating as well or have some other problems. But I do believe she's got real conditions and not fake ones.
It's really unfortunate that she looks like this. But even ugly people can do things to make themselves more attractive. If she got her hair styld and fixed up the unibrow and facial hair she'd look a little better. Plus her wardrobe is bad. It reminds me of when kids put on their grandparents clothes.

Watch with sound. She sounds like a fucking goat lmao
So you're a pants-shitting retard who squeals like an animal, but you can write several coherent paragraphs about your medical conditions? And film yourself while having a tard fit? OK, Amanda.
… because when you're having a meltdown, you actually like think about turning on your camera and recording it. Sure, Jan.
This and the tumblrtots who type while they're triggered
into panic attacks really bugs me because like… I've had meltdowns before. It's part of having disability ass. I've never thought whilst having one that "hey, I should record this and put it on tumblr!" That's really not something you even think abut when you're that worn down and overloaded tbh. But I dunno, I've not got tumblr disease so maybe those afflicted with tumblr disease do actually think about filming when they have a meltdown or a ppaelkjanic atejltatvack.
I'm loving her tumblr tagline too… "as small as a world and as large as alone". She certainly is as small as a world alright. Like Jupiter or smth. OMG.
Does she not have caretakers though since she's this retarded? Isn't that part of their job? And where are this girl's parents if she's really that bad off? How can she "live independently"? I've never seen anyone as bad as she's playing at just living on their own like it was no big deal, it was always forever with parents or in a home or with lots of in-home caretakers. I guess more evidence that she's faking.
Wound care is super important and if she's going to be that much of a retard about it then I really do hope her stank ass catches flesh eating disease.
maybe i should just start shitting myself and making various noises instead of going to college, its working for Amanda after all.
(This fucking sound is going to be in my nightmares)
I'm going to start making that sound every time I want something.
From what I read it looks like her dad died. That's why she wears his clothes. She also says that people tell her that his clothes look good on her. Either she's lying or they're just being polite.
Not sure about the mom. I'm wondering what she thinks of her daughter playing a poopy diaper retard for attention.

Human hair lockets aren't so weird. They used to be trendy in Victorian times. But wearing all her dad's clothes is strange.
It looks like she was saying he was autistic here.>>207465
This makes me wonder if her fake autism is based on some sort of obsessive devotion to her father.
But the way she writes/vs. what she claims she's diagnosed with is really jarring and you'd think that she would notice it doesn't add up.
So far it looks like she isn't begging for donations. Although she reblogs a lot of begging posts. It's possible I missed hers while sorting through the pile. But this whole tumblr begging thing is really pathetic. I've seen people claiming they urgently need money for electrolysis because "muh dysphoria". Really sad.

Nice to hear an autistic's perspective on this. If anyone else reading this thread has autism, what are your thoughts about Amanda?
Another autistic person here. I also didn't get diagnosed until 19, but that's because my parents were god fearing, ain't nothing wrong with MY child type. She doesn't move or act like anyone with autism I've noticed and she seems to grasp social nuances far too well. The shit she posted about facial expressions is what really puts the nail in the coffin on her fake autism to me. One of the things they test you on is your ability to interpret facial expressions and put them to emotions because that, understanding sarcasm out of context, and turns of phrase are all things that are particularly difficult for people with autism.
Something she has no problem with.
she looks like she's about to sneeze or shit herself.>>208581
If she was ~actually autistic~ she wouldn't even understand her own facial expressions. How is anyone convinced she's autistic at all? She's waay too intelligent for the autism she's faking.
I've been around these types since i was a child, i had to help one of them wash his own face in the bathroom.
A low functioning autist wouldn't be able to put together such coherent sentences at all. She wouldn't have the mental power to reflect deeply. Hell, doctors wouldnt even tell her
what's wrong with her. She wouldn't live on her own, she'd been in some group home, constantly monitored. She posted a video of herself wandering in a kitchen alone, an autistic person who is as lown functioning as she claims she is wouldn't even be allowed to be in the kitchen alone.
If she decided to go the "i love trains" autist route, then I'd maybe
believe her. The only people who'd believe this sre people who have never actually seen a low functioning autistic person in action.
Because sucking and fucking to get diagnoses is a thing.
I don't know anything about this chick but it isn't in the realm of impossibility to have very many diagnosed disorders.
She looks like she'd taint your dick if you had sex with her.
Like make it change colors or leave some sort of ring or produce strange, itchy bumps

i'm going to barf imagining this.
Exactly, she's well and truly fake.
She shits upon a throne of lies.
i've followed her for a long time. i thought she was fascinating. she lives independently and has caretakers that visit her daily to wash her and do chores. she chooses to keep her body hair because of an autism thing and can't remember her face unless she has a beard.
but now that i think of it, her laundry list of disorders/illnesses seems really bizarrely long and improbable. she has gastroparesis and if she eats anything she aspirates into her lungs and gets bronchitis, trigeminal neuralgia (considered to be the worst pain a human can ever experience, really terrifying shit) and gets painful nerve blockers to stop it, severe adrenal deficiency, severe autism, regularly gets meningitis, "something like mysanthia gravis," that one disorder where your cartilidge is too bendy that causes severe pain and deforms your hands and fingers, and in passing mentioned she has trouble peeing and has some kind of electric node in her bladder and needs an oxygen tank like those were least of her problems. i really couldn't fathom how someone can have so many problems but is still alive, still coherent and not in a home and i thought she was admirable. it was because of the way she looks that i believed she was severely disabled, like someone in so much pain probably can't take care of themselves properly. but now reading all of this stuff on her in the past, i don't know. i'm just floored. how can someone fake the severity of life threatening illnesses.
File: 1448765944578.png (471.4 KB, 522x749, Untitled.png)
she has one of those life alert things and a ton of medical bracelets.
but still, her house is very cluttered. she said one of her biggest problems with autism is executive dysfunction and can't even put on deodorant or brush her teeth unless a caretaker puts them in her hands and tells her to do it. if someone who can't make their brain tell their body to put deodorant, what would happen if there was a fire or things fell on top of her?
Things I learned from this:
- She should be a retard. She almost can't remember to breathe.
- She regularly forgets how to read.
- She can't recognize emergency situations or call an ambulance, yet institutionalization isn't an option.
- She has autism. The severity is still questionable.
- She had a brain abnormality at 13, but we don't know what caused it, what became of it or what kinds of problems it caused.
- She has PTSD because of doctors' adherence to "autism stereotypes." She mentioned abuse at 14 but not 10 years later, so this can be assumed to be the primary cause.
- She had schizoid symptoms at 14.
- She seems to know what conditions she has (despite not being able to express herself or say where she feels pain?) and has had many past encounters with "bad doctors" who disagreed with her because they didn't know her and believed autism stereotypes.
- Caretakers must do what she tells them and have to provide a typed explanatory statement if they disagree with any of her directions. She is triggered
by caretakers and doctors doing things she doesn't want.
- There's still a large number of diagnoses unaccounted for.
I haven't seen many people online that talk about gastroparesis. I've been aspirating food over the past few months. I certainly don't want a tube going into my stomach. But reading up on her it seems that some doctors tried to talk her out of the tube surgeries. I remember asking if that or a liquid diet was an option and the doctors told me it was a last ditch solution and it wasn't something I'd be happy with.
So I have a hard time believing someone would actually want this after professionals tried to talk her out of it. Maybe they just gave her what she wanted so she'd stop bothering them.
I too find it amazing that she could have so many conditions and not be in a home. You'd think that it would be extremely dangerous if she had an accident or there was a fire.>>208791
That is really strange. You'd think that there would be a maid keeping it clean because of the danger. She can't wipe her ass or brush her teeth without help. Yet her typing is so literate. I'm sure she'd explain that as a quirk of her autism. But really her autism comes off as something out of a movie.
I don't doubt that she has health problems. But I wouldn't doubt that she's exacerbated them with unnecessary surgeries and procedures. She may have doctor shopped until she got the diagnosis she wanted. Or she complained so much that they just wanted to placate her.
I wonder if she's the kind of person who poisons themselves or purposely eats foods she can' digest just to look sicker? Since she's eating candies and pumping them out of the tube I've got to wonder what isn't getting pumped out. She's posted about eating ice cream. Dairy and gastroparesis don't really mix well. If she's eating ice cream she's going to feel sick. And after she pumps out the evidence she can complain about stomach pains to her doctors.
Yes. Yes, it does.
Next time you forget a word, feel free to lash out at the nearest ableist.
Damn, read it all.
Think I prefer her "I'm an elf" years.
I don't want to defend this woman, not for a second. But I see a lot of people in this thread using pretty shitty logic as to why she's "Not really autistic"
The "functioning" part of an autism diagnosis refers to social development, because that's what autism primarily manifests as, it doesn't necessarily dictate the person's ability to function in other ways. For example, I knew someone with a diagnosis of "High functioning" asperger's and whilst he appeared mostly socially normal, pleasant even, he couldn't wash; feed himself properly; manage his finances at all or look after a house well enough to to stop himself from living in squalor. He needs slightly less care than this woman (Because he doesn't have a feeding tube or any other physical problem) but if you were to look at anything he'd written or his SNS or whatever you'd assume he was just a normal guy.
Not all low functioning autistic people are so bad they need 24/7 assistance - which is another thing. The highest level of care you can get outside of being institutionalised is usually a nurse visiting once a day. This is pretty standard, and it's really rare for people to actually need that amount of care. Remember these people don't have to work or have any real responsibilities, most are fine to potter about their houses doing whatever they do all day.
Again, I don't want to defend this woman, but remember that part of the reason fakes hurt real disabled people is because people start using this logic against actual disabled people. They make it harder for them to be believed about their conditions. It's a combination of all her stupid shit that makes it likely she's faking, not just "Autistic people always need to be exactly like X Y or Z or they're faking."
sorry for tl;dr I just worry some poor sperg is one day gonna have to deal with a witch hunt calling them a fake because of people like this cunt.
Her boobs make me sad.
And OMG this bitch hasn't got executive reasoning to brush her teeth or use soap or buy a better fitting bra but she's allowed near the stove?
Yes, but she's obviously faking, and we can all tell this. Its ridiculous to think that a woman so autistic that she shits her self and cannot properly boil a pot of water in a reasonable time has the ability to sit down at a keyboard and type the way she does.
Its ridiculous to think that someone who can't keep her feeding tube clean is capable of introspective thought. She's selling false hope to parents of severely autistic children with her actions, and she should be called out as such.
Anons are just poking holes in her story, as they should.
If you read through the truth blogs written about her, her friends say that she was a pretty normal girl. A little bit geeky, but normal. The drugs she started doing later is what fucked her up.
I'd believe her if she would just say she has something like drug induced schizophrenia.
I didn't once state that I believed her, or that I think anyone else should. but shit like this: >Its ridiculous to think that a woman so autistic that she shits her self and cannot properly boil a pot of water in a reasonable time has the ability to sit down at a keyboard and type the way she does.
Is exactly what I'm arguing against. Yes, it seems ridiculous, but unless you're a healthcare professional you have absolutely nothing to base that on other than intuition. I know people who've failed ATOS assessments because of people like you, who don't understand that the ability to do one thing is not linked to the ability to do others. Disabled people often struggle in very specific areas. It's like saying rainman was faking because how could he be incapable of looking after himself if he was that good at math. It's a non sequitur though. They're not related to one another.>>209211
This makes a lot more sense as an argument and doesn't have nearly as many holes. You can't just say "She's not really autistic because she can do this" because it just doesn't work like that, and that attitude genuinely hurts real disabled people. Which is why she's shit, remember? Don't be the vehicle her shittyness spreads into the world in.
Yeah, it's pretty obvious that the schizophrenia symptoms were directly related to LSD, especially because there was no mention of them a year earlier. I don't know if a brief period of drug abuse could be to blame for her overall regression over 10 years, though. But then I've never done LSD so idk. There has to have been something else that happened between 14 and 24 that nobody knows about. Meeting that autistic girl (who must have been worse off than her) is one possibility, but what made her come to crave all that medical attention?
I have a theory that she was deeply affected by being away at college at a young age - something that was mentioned in her records as a reason why she couldn't be institutionalized. She couldn't handle the idea of growing up and having real responsibilities, so she convinced herself that she was much worse than she was. She longed for the days where she was cared for and had nothing to worry about. All the attention and sympathy she got from schizophrenia may have given her a taste of what kinds of benefits she could expect if she took on the identity of a patient.
Yes,a brief period of extreme drug use (her case, check the testimonials from her friends) can do that to you. She even got her fairy tree friends delusions after doing a shitload of LSD. (Notice she doesn't talk about those things any more?)
There was a blog linked her that had emails from her former friends, and they all have said her problems arised after her extreme use of LSD. It will do that to you.
How long does it take to fucking type pages of introspective, medically intelligent inner monologues? If she has to find her muscles to stand, how long does it take to find the muscles and bodily connections for her mega blogs?
She's a faker for attention. She probably had drug abuse schizoid issues that dissapated when she stopped drugs and had medical treatment.
She loves being "sick" it's all she talks about, all her videos are about it and she writes mountains of crap defending her illnesses and "proving" how real they are. No one proves their disease to this extent. She's only going that far because she knows it's all fake. She's probably normal and can verbal at home, but fakes when it come to her videos and when people visit her.
She is mentally I'll with Munchausen's disorder, and the only cure is for doctors and the people in her life to bring that to light and tell her they know she's faking.
I would normally agree with you, but people with autism are known for their lack of writing/communication abilities. Its part of the diagnosis. Math os a different ballgame, because there are rules to math, there's a formula and pattern that they can grab on to. Even art would be better. She claims to be such a low functioning autistic person that she can't do anything, but sit down and write elegantly? When one of the first things they'll test you on is written and verbal communication skills? She chooses not to verbally communicate, but autism not only affect motor skills (in the severe form she fakes) but the parts of your brain that allow you to make, and follow a logical train of thought.
It's not really right to discount people for these reasons, but clear lines have to be drawn. I'm not a medical expert (yet) but from what i learned, her writing "voice" is too clear. Her non verbal communication is too natural, it's not forced and formal.
But yeah, this is the last I'll say about it.
Her communication skills being too good is a standalone issue though. If they're too good for an autistic person, then they're too good full stop. They're not too good compared to level of proficiency she displays in other areas, you get me? The problem I have is with people saying "Well, she can clearly do this so why can't she do this other, unrelated thing she says she can't?" That kind of reasoning is shitty.
Anyway, again, I don't doubt she's faking. Anon's theory about her developing a taste for being a patient after having a drug induced breakdown seems the most fitting to me. Also seems like the one most likely to have fooled all of the medical professionals she's dealing with.
Maybe I'm a cunt but here's my feeling about it.
If I were as disgusting I'd go all the way. She has no hope of finding love or doing traditionnally "fun" things like regular people. If that were me I'd go "fuck it, I'm disabled, I'm a huge retard that's why I'm like this" and then have some mental rest over the disgusting body I'd have.
Kind of like the HAES bullshit "Diets don't work, my genetics means I can't lose weight so it's not like being fit is even something I can achieve" and if you don't hope for anything, at least your dreams can't be crushed.
Yes there is. A lot of times random RCs are sold as acid that actually aren't LSD. Saying information like this is pretty harmful.>>209309
There is such a thing as fake acid though. >>209309
It is but if you do a lot of it in a short amount of time, you're going to get mentality fucked. Therr is such a thing as overdosing, and this is what she did.
OOOHHHHH GODDDDDD She looks so much like ForeverKailyn in that one photo like I'm just hearing "Hayyyyyyyyy guiiiiiths!" in my head even just looking at it.
Ya maybe the whole retard act is for the best for her then.
Had to stop after a few minutes because I couldn't take watching her gigantic unrestrained tits flop around at waist level>>209166
This is what I seriously don't understand. What kind of person is completely incapable of doing everyday tasks like boiling water, but TOTALLY has the presence of mind to film themselves doing it and edit it and explain what they're doing? She can't boil water but she can set up the camera and use video editing software and upload it to youtube?

I'm watching a handful of these now (the one explaining how she can so SOMETHINGS sometimes and not others ugh.) this is from her video talking about what it's like to be considered ~retarded.
ok i don't believe she's autistic/retarded/disabled anymore. why is she filming herself? why is she trying to rub her 'disability' in everyone's faces? How could a truly disabled person film theirselves and write out text explaining what they're doing/thinking?
i'm so confused

Another one of my favorite quotes. Do you think she tells herself that shame can be unlearned while she shits herself?
Lol yup. God her house looks like a tip though.>>209748>It took me 25 years to figure out how to blow my nose.
Ya know what? This one I actually believe. I bet this is the one true thing she's said in her life, like, ever. Not because she's actually retarded or anything, but just because she's gross and probably had her parents do everything for her for a very long time anyway.
you might like ASMR then anon

There was a whole lot of misinformation spread with that study. I'd take it with a truck load of salt.http://www.csicop.org/specialarticles/show/dont_burn_your_bra_for_science_just_yet/
Also there was some Halle Berry article about her keeping her boobs perky by wearing a bra to bed which i can't verify works either. I like wearing a bra to bed because I feel weird without a bra and wear one without underwire.
She's not faking autism from the looks of her medical records, but the severity and the other conditions she claims to have are awfully suspicious.
Seriously, y'all. She's probably got at least Assburgers. Some of the autism-like symptoms aren't faked. Some probably are, but not all.
No they aren't. DOM and LSD-like designer drugs have been around since the 60s. By the time she would have been experimenting with acid there would have been a massive amount of similar drugs being sold to stupid college kids as LSD.
That said, some people just can't handle their trips, and other people overdo it by taking too much or tripping too frequently.

PCOS in mothers is POSSIBLY linked to autism in their children. That's not the same as what you're emplying.
Also that hormone shit is pure pseudoscience. Let me guess, you think autism is the "extreme male brain" too? Baron Cohen's theories are panned by most psychologists. The only research that has ever found a link between male hormones and autism has been his research.
The following 2014 post on her blog could have/should have been shortened to simply read "If the doctors would just take my word for it because I read about the diagnosis I wanted and just give me the meds, this wouldn't have happened."https://ballastexistenz.wordpress.com/2014/08/26/almost-alike-a-medical-cautionary-tale/
Seriously, I think Amanda is probably a nightmare to have as a patient. She seems to think Googling symptoms is the same as a doctor's diagnosis. Then she gets irritated when they don't automatically believe her and just start writing a prescription or perform the procedure. I have a feeling that when she does get the medicine or procedure she demands (and says she has to fight for because doctors don't "value her life"), it's because the doctor just wants to get this wacko off his or her back until the next visit when she complains that more shit is wrong with her.

Found hir list of oppressions
Exactly. Dementia patients can live on their own and just need help with medications. Some need constant care, some cannot make any decisions themselves.
I have taken care of people that went from living in their own feces, to coming to a facility and getting assistance with everyday choices.
It* should be reading about care for people such as themselves, not a disease that has nothing to do with them.
During one of my last visits with her, she was at an assisted living facility and my dad went to say hi to her. She asked him who he was and she said: "I'm your son."
Not only that but she'd talking about being visited by dead relatives, it was kind of creepy.
Uh excuse me, sie is genderless or agender but sometimes identifies as a woman when societal conventions allow.
Check your ignorance privilege
Some of Amanda's posts on her ballastexistenz blog are priceless! I'm going to post some of my favorites here. Here's one about a caregiver who is reportedly abusive to her and other clients. But when Amanda dons her detective hat and "asks around", she finds a huge red flag that tells her that this caregiver is not to be trusted!https://ballastexistenz.wordpress.com/2012/08/27/im-the-only-one-who-can-take-care-of-you-properly/
P.S.: Does anyone think it's suspicious that Amanda seems to like talking about things like defecating and feminine hygiene in blog posts and then redacts portions of her medical history saying "It's private"? Bitch, nobody wants to hear about your nasty pussy and the cleaning thereof!

Wow, the old matchmaker from mulan really let herself go.
Well, if this creature is living in a assisted living, caregivers (lacking a certified nursing assistant credentials) are not authorized to give suppositories.
But yes, it is bullshit that this thing can't wipe it's own ass.
I would be pissed if I were it's caregiver, that is just pure laziness.
Sie says that sie has LANs and other some sort of certified home caregivers come in and take care of them.
It just makes me infuriated because there are people who actually need care and this person just takes up time and theyre probably just bullshitting everything
I think Amanda would get along with Jeroen Jeffry, an infamous shit/humiliation fetishist.
Don't look him up if you value your sanity (or stomach contents)
He goes by Jeroen Elswijk, too. You won't get much googling him since he shares a name with a violinmaker in Amsterdam but his stuff is out there. Won't link it here since its OT and he really deserves his own thread.

If a bunch of people on the internet are acting as your medical advice you're going to die or be seriously injured
A woman "accosted her" as she was waiting a bus.https://ballastexistenz.wordpress.com/2012/05/15/to-the-woman-who-accosted-me-on-my-way-to-the-para-transit-van-tonight/
And a communication board Amanda made that was inspired by this incident. Actually kind of funny.https://ballastexistenz.wordpress.com/2012/06/25/communication-page-i-used-to-handle-that-invasive-woman-i-met/
I notice that Amanda doesn't mention a staff member being with her at the time. If she's as disabled as she says, how and why was she left (I'm guessing outside) unattended? And if this woman did in fact harass her, it sounds like the woman, unlike Amanda, may have actually mentally disabled or ill in some way. But I guess that never occurred to Amanda. As usual, she's the victim.
There was speculation about how this person may not be as disabled as it lets on.
Not really a cow, but the long blog posts juxtaposed with these images or herself are very interesting to say the least.
If this person is really disabled, well, good for her/hir/xir I guess. You can type novels but not boil water.
Oh man, I found the video after all. Jesus, Anon. How did you even hear of this guy? Anyway, I'm thinking >>>/snow/82015
could join Amanda and Jeroen in their posterior proceedings.

The pictures of her as a child reminded me instantly of this girl.
Possibly, you never know with the ~spoonie~ trend on tumblr.
But seriously, how could someone looking like this NOT be severely disabled, at least mentally?
>>232849>That feeling of being a bully? That's your frigging conscience trying to say something. Don't let yourself be trained into ignoring that feeling. Wow. I'm just shocked this book is coming out and talking about ways to manipulate disabled people into doing what you want us to do.
A. Fuck her for putting herself in the same category as people with dementia.
B. She obviously knows jack shit about dementia, period.
C. Failing to "bully" someone in the short term can have extremely disastrous consequences in the long term. Grandpa is covered in his own bodily waste, won't leave his bedroom, and refuses to eat? Oh, I guess it's okay, because clearly that's what he wants. The fact that he's got dementia and is incapable of taking care of himself at this point is irrelevant. Wait, I feel guilty for this… But if I pressure him to do something and he resists, I also feel guilt… OH GOD WHAT DO I DO??!
>I told them I'd use the bedpan until my body was good and ready to get up
>I shit the bed
>their worry was "If sie thinks she can get away with shitting the bed, sie will never use a toilet again."
This bitch think enabling negative behavior is A-OK, has zero personal grooming, and is a special snowflake, and she wonders why hospital staff don't trust her when she claims she is literally incapable of using the commode. Ugh.
I'm assuming that's why Amanda has a caregivers, if it were up to them to care for their own feeding tube it would probably be infected.
I can just see them playing around with it with their shit finger.
Oh gawd. The germs, the nasty germs.
>>235044>Being ugly isn't a disability
not the same anon
sure those are not the same, would you employ her though (provided that otherwise she was normal)? she's not simply ugly, she's monstrous unfortunately. what is there for a similar looking person to do, 'cause i wouldn't be too optimistic.
Two different threads in the Straight Dope message boards discussing Amanda. She herself actually joins the discussion. The first thread isn't all that interesting after the first few pages because it becomes about the vaccine and autism debate. The second thread is more about people calling Amanda out and Amanda providing excuses.
First thread: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=437925
Second thread: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=438331
It's just an incredibly scummy thing to do. Why do they think it's a good idea? Are they that narcissistic? But why does Amanda keep the act up after being called out numerous times?
You're really sweet anon, but no.
I commend you for your kindness,but no.
But she is still very obese and autistic in that picture lol….
She'd look so much better without those stupid glasses, hair/clothes and double chin, like I said. I'm now even more certain after seeing this picture.>>235253
If she doesnt have autism then no one has autism.
And ok, maybe its not an official symptom or whatever to have weird looking eyes when you have a mentall illness but lets be honest that crazy people often have crazy eyes. When I used to be an obese greasy neet I had those same eyes lel.
>If she doesnt have autism then no one has autism.
Are you parroting her?. She doesn't have an official diagnosis, and it's not like she's been avoiding doctors.
She probably just fucked herself up from the too much LSD she did. She was fairly normal before that, only afterwards she started acting schizophrenic.
But actually developmentally disabled? No, she would have way more symptoms when she was younger, to look like that now. The only symptom she had was being a little bit awkward, which obviously doesn't qualify for an autism diagnosis.
So mental illness, YES, developmentally disabled, NO. She's obviously crazy, but actually disabled, no. She's acting disabled for attention.
Also the only autistic person (and I've seen 200+) I know who had weird eyes like her, was born with them and had no relation to his autism. Didn't help his case, but it wasn't related. So it isn't even an unofficial symptom of autism. I think it would rather be caused by her 'LSD' abuse.
Amanda was just a smart girl who went to college way too early, so she was dropped in an adult world, while she was still emotionally developing. She started mimicking diseases to flee from reality, to give up responsibility. Eventually she did a ton of LSD and other psychedelics, started hallucinating about fairies, trying to commit suicide and and being aggressive towards others. And she kept doing it, just switching from disease, to disease and even took up a fucking disability.
>>232858>has a cognitive disability>but can recite complex disability rights papers in hir head>and also wrote these blog posts
Yeah but if you were its caregiver, you'd be a bully for calling her lazy for being unable to wiper her own ass but being able to put in its own suppositories, as per her post in >>232849
. Sie just wants to be able to do what she wants lol and don't you dare tell her otherwise.>>234809
I agree with everything you've just said. Thank you, anon.>>235383
It's not even the LSD tho at this point. Might have been when she had major psychotic breaks in college, but it's just literally all her having Munchausen's and being a big fat faking attention whore now. And maybe it is because she saw the attention she got being cray from bad trips, and wanted to find other ways to get attention, but yeah.>>235480
Kind of makes it obvious that she's faking tbh. The wanting us to all shower her with gifts is too.
I was mostly talking about what might have caused the whole eye thing. You need to fuck your brain up somehow to get your eyes stuck like that, because in childhood pictures her eyes seem fine.
And for some reason I doubt she actually took LSD, I'd rather guess it was something more unsafe.
And I also doubt that she could force her eyes to stay like that all the time. So it would have to be something other than Munchhausen's.
One eye points forwards, the other is off to the side. If you genuinely can't see anything then you may need to have your own eyes tested.

she would look like a young mila kunis with better eyebrows if she fixed herself
Here is the transcript of the second half of the CNN story that led to people calling out Amanda as not having been autistic all her life. They follow her to an autism convention in Canada where she has a little episode when things don't go her way.http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0804/02/acd.02.html
I think it's kind of obvious what that tantrum was really about. She talked about living independently, but parents of REAL autistic kids for whom this is not a viable solution began asking REAL questions about things like guardianship. Uh-oh! They're not buying Amanda's bullshit as she's presented it to them! And as such, she's not the center of attention. So she has a prima donna tantrum under the guise of an autistic meltdown.
I've got a slight lazy eye too, but with the right glasses prescription I'm doing ok now.
She's got dozens of pairs of tumblr glasses, that she probably got online somewhere, and she could be using an older prescription or something to get them instead of getting assessed every year. I dunno tho since she's p. much addicted to being at doctors', but eye doctor is a different ballgame than gps or er docs, so maybe she prioritises her doctor visits that way and skips the eye doctor.
In one of her videos, she shows ankle restraints on her legs, the kind she says were used on her when she was younger and institutionalized.
I guess she dropped that part of the story at some point. God she's such a skeevy creepo medical fetishist.
She's fairly attractive, in that you wouldn't turn her down based on her looks. She doesn't seem very smart or nice, but maybe that's just my image of her from the way she has been cast.
This girl is always going to be uggo.
See the fact that it's 'oh so obvious', tells you that she's over-exaggerating. Also, if she was indeed autistic, she would've had these issues during childhood already, which she didn't. You can't catch the autizmz. And if she indeed had the specific form of autism called aspergers, she wouldn't need someone to wipe her fucking ass and she would be able to boil some fucking water.
Look up Munchhausen's, anon. Those people can go very fucking far.

In case anyone was wondering why…..
Pic is only a small part of her response. Full response linked here: http://withasmoothroundstone.tumblr.com/post/104316586155/why-are-you-so-gross
Apparently at a mental healthcare camp, she buddied up with an autistic girl and became very interested in the disorder, going so far to ask questions from the family.
She also collects books written by autistic people, it would be extremely easy to pick up information from them about living with Autism.
Low functioning autists with a hygiene problem, don't want to be unhygienic. If they could choose to, they'd love to be able to either be able to bathe themselves, or be able to notice when they become gross.
She knows when she's gross, she could bathe herself, but she chooses not to. She REVELS in being gross. That's not autism.
She's trying to emulate combinations that just don't happen with autism. To a person who doesn't know many autists or hasn't read up on it, she looks like the real deal. And that's what she's going for.
Actual parents of autists, actual autists, and actual professionals have said that she isn't really autistic or at least doubt her.
She's also experiencing weird delusions/synesthesia, and blaming it on 'autism', while those things aren't part of autism at all.>>237233
anon is spot on, a combination of Munchausen's Syndrome and paranoid schizophrenia is the likely culprit.
Depends on the autist. Some literally can't recognize when they need a bath, they could be stinking like a corpse and they'd still not recognize it, completely oblivious. Some have a sensory issue regarding bathing. And some are SO low functioning that they can't operate a faucet.
But it doesn't happen often at all that autists have hygiene issues, but they are the ones that stand out. I know more autists who compulsively wash their hands or are obsessed with taking long baths, than autists that are unhygienic.
Usually the stoma hole is reddish too. In >>207508
it kind of looks like she just stuck it in her bellybutton. I think its fake.

I'm the anon who posted some of Amanda's Wordpress posts, including the one where she was allegedly accosted by a crazy woman and her rant about doctors. Here is one where she made a list of some of the different stereotypes she violates. Take that, societal norms!https://ballastexistenz.wordpress.com/2007/12/16/please-violate-only-one-stereotype-at-a-time/
Again, notice the theme in this post as with many other things she posts. If you question Amanda or her behavior, it's because of YOUR prejudices and the fact that YOU'VE been brainwashed by able-bodied society into having certain opinions and attitudes. It's never because Amanda herself is purposely engaging in desperate attention-seeking behaviors in attempt to make herself a target. According to her, WE are the problem!
Good theory anon! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks she's faking the whole tube thing. It could be something minor also, since she says she aspirates food and she's fat enough for me to belief that, she sperged out on her doctors enough for them to stick a tube in her so she would shut up. Because she obviously feeds herself without the tube as well.
Dear christ she is fucking huge. She looks like she's pushing 400+ pounds.
What the fuck is this. I think it's ridiculous all this shit about her being oppressed for being oh so different. It's a weird pity party. Sadly, it also seems a bit like something I would type out when of be high as fuck.
And that feeding tube shit? What does she have that for again? Because I've had several horrible digestive issues with multiple surgeries, and the only feeding tube I got was a temp. tube through my nose.
According to the CNN piece on her, she uses it because it takes up "too much of her energy" to maintain her balance while walking.
Speaking of CNN, Amanda claims they "edited" her a certain way that doesn't tell the whole truth about her life. Even when she manages to get attention, this bitch still finds some kind of fault with it!https://ballastexistenz.wordpress.com/2007/06/24/editing/
Amanda's mother Anna "defended" her daughter via video. Despite her gentle tone of voice and pleasant expression, I get a very cold vibe from this woman. She apparently posts on her daughter's blogs under the name "mom".https://ballastexistenz.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/from-my-mother/
I've long suspected that mother and daughter were/are working together in this whole thing. Notice in those medical forms that Amanda put on her blogs that when she was brought to these specialists at 13 and 14, it says it was her mother who always brought her; her father (whose clothes she now wears every day) is barely mentioned other than to say the she lives with both parents. But I've never been able to decide how it got started. Did/does Anna have Munchausen by proxy and took Amanda to all these specialists and convinced her of her illnesses so well that this is all she knows? Or did Amanda start faking things because of the stresses of being in a college world at 14 and mom went along with it happily?
>>234791>You can type novels but not boil water.
Hate to play devil's advocate, but that's just how stuff works for some autistic people. It can be pretty damn easy to sit and type at a computer, but not as much so to actually get up and do shit for yourself. A lot of autistic people also can't talk very well but can communicate better through typing. Not being able to speak doesn't make you some shit-flinging retard like a lot of people think.
I still feel like this woman is faking most of her problems because her accounts of everything are inconsistent as fuck, but you have to understand how the different things she's claiming to have work before you criticize them.
The issue isn't the 'not speaking, but able to type novels' stuff. That is actually a fucking stereotype of autism, everyone knows that one.
That's actually exactly the point, she is miss-matching autism stereotypes from several functioning levels. She's taking the worst from every functioning level and combining it.
She is portraying classical autism stereotypes, classical PDD NOS stereotypes and aspergers stereotypes. It doesn't happen that someone has ALL the types and functioning levels, AT ONCE.
It clearly shows that she's going off a list of autism symptoms and trying to emulate every single one of them to seem real, while in reality NO autistic person has ALL the symptoms from ALL the variations.
She's trying way too hard, and if she can't emulate a symptom, she'll just miss-attribute stuff to autism.
Exactly. And notice that when people call her on those glaring inconsistencies, she responds with her usual "stock" answers of how everything we know about autism comes from our own prejudices, how functioning levels serve no purpose other than to oppress people with disabilities, how no one takes her seriously because abelism, etc.
I wish I could find it, but on a WrongPlanet (she used to post there under the name "anbuend") post where someone asked something about autism and schizophrenia, she actually stated that schizophrenia doesn't even exist and gave a long list of reasons why the whole concept of that disease is rooted in outdated concepts and biases!
Sage for OT/coolstorysis but in my case, a big part of it is a difficulty with transition combined with sensory issues. It's the same reason I take relatively long to leave the house in the morning and why I regularly hang around work longer than I need even though I'd much rather be at home; once I've gotten used to a certain condition (like filthy pajamas) I don't want to leave it. Showering requires me to go into the cold bathroom, get out of my comfy pjs, get wet and get used to the water temperature. Once I get my ass in there I tend to take very long showers because afterwards I have to do the same thing in reverse; turn off the warm water and be exposed to cold air, towel off and get dressed which requires me to get used to the feel of clothing again, etc. plus I have a whole skincare routine which takes a while. It's hard to explain to someone who doesn't experience this but for some reason, change (no matter how minor) is very stressful to me so it's easier to sit around in a familiar condition, no matter how uncomfortable, than get off my ass and do do something. It took my psychologist forever to convince me it's not just me being a lazy fuck (although tbh I'm still very much a lazy fuck).
TL;DR showering is complicated when you're an autist
Please note that I do, in fact, shower every day. It takes me more willpower than the average person but that's no excuse to sit around being gross all the time. Learning to deal with this sort of thing is part of growing up.
But I guess if you're craving attention as much as this creature is, rolling around in your own filth until other people feel obliged to wipe your ass for you is a pretty good way to get it.
Thanks for explaining.
I know autism is a spectrum so there's low, normal and high functioning autists. But like someone upthread said, it seems Amanda is taking all the autism disorders and displaying symptoms from each one.
Mean to add >>237770
comes off Amanda's blog, where she talks about why she's still fat with gastroparesis.
Her mother doesn't have MbP, it's Amanda who demonstrates everything to do with Munchausen's Syndrome.
The blog site against her autism diagnoses says that her mother had a breakdown when she first heard her daughter had Paranoid Schizophrenia, she even thoroughly denied her daughter had it regardless of what the doctors said. Then Amanda was "institutionalised" by her parents and her treatments were paid for, one hospital stay cost 8K for 8 weeks… but she's never been state institutionalised, just private hospitals.
Her mom is also a gung-ho Christian who doesn't believe in mental health problems, and that God can cure anything.
Her mother's crazy, sure… but she doesn't have MbP, the blog also said that her mom eventually got worn down by Amanda's constant need to find something wrong with herself and eventually she just gave up and went along with anything Amanda said.
There's so many things here that check with her on having Munchausen's Syndrome…http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/291304-overview#a1
It's actually quite scary.
I read the part about her mother having a breakdown about the schizophrenia diagnosis, but where did you see the part about Amanda wearing her down to the point of giving in?
I have a somewhat similar theory about her "problems" starting around the time she went to college. I wonder if part of her special snowflake mentality stems from the fact that when she was in a regular school, her high intelligence and academic achievements (malingering and lack of hygiene aside, there's no doubt that this is an extremely intelligent woman) made her something of a star. However, at the gifted college, she was surrounded by OTHER gifted teens for the first time in her life. She no longer stood out, she just sort of blended in. And what's more, being surrounded by other gifted kids may have meant that for the first time, she had some real competition. She burned out. When she started exaggerating the extent of her illness, it may have because she felt she could no longer stand out as a gifted student, but she now had to stand out in a different way. Either way, I think at least part of this comes from being thrust into a college world at such a young age and being made to live a more young adult type life before she was emotionally mature enough.

Facial hair and weight gain can be indicative of PCOS or Cushing's syndrome. Cushing's in particular is known for causing "moon face." As for her eyes, I have no idea.
Could just be an unfortunate constellations of genes. The existence of 2 hairy, walleyed, round-faced women isn't indicative of a trend.
Here are links to some pics from her Flickr account. To anyone else, they look like very normal photos of a perfectly normal child. But notice Amanda's captions. It seems extremely important to Amanda that people view her as having always been severely disabled.https://www.flickr.com/photos/silentmiaow/922070334/in/album-72157594485552455/https://www.flickr.com/photos/silentmiaow/921725772/in/album-72157601044625294/https://www.flickr.com/photos/silentmiaow/921621506/in/album-72157601044625294/https://www.flickr.com/photos/silentmiaow/921862548/in/album-72157601044625294/https://www.flickr.com/photos/silentmiaow/921862602/in/album-72157601044625294/https://www.flickr.com/photos/silentmiaow/919464452/in/album-72157601046237447/
I can't be the only one who believes she intentionally made up stories years later to go with some of these otherwise mundane photos. And notice there are NO pictures from her stint at Simon's Rock College. Probably because it doesn't fit her narrative.

>>239316>to learn to walk properly
and honestly if it was anyone else, I'd think dance class was recommended to help address gait issues. That's not terribly uncommon, to enrol a kid who has trouble with gross motor skills into a sport or dance class to help them develop, even today.
But since it's her and she's just making shit up… yeah no.
An old video of Amanda discussing her "three months in a regular high school" and the problems she faced. According to her, her ending up in college was a serious miscommunication.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-hW-ZLcejk
Compare that to her Straight Dope message board posts here. http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=438331
Whichever story she tells (and she tells several), they never add up. If she was as severely disabled as she says in the first video, what "serious miscommunication" could ever have possessed school officials to put her in a gifted college? And what's more, why would her PARENTS go along with such an arrangement? They would had to have approved of sending her there. As far as her posts on the message board where she says that she simply raised her hand in college because she was mimicking what her classmates were doing and not because she knew what was going on, would a teacher have called on her at some point? Wouldn't the teacher have seen her behavior in class and known there was a serious problem? Especially a PSYCHOLOGY TEACHER of all things?!?
And then in her blog post about fat people and feeding tubes, she mention "a period of starvation in my early 20s". Here a pics from her Flickr page from about age 19 to 24. She's thin at 19, but notice by 2001 when she was 21, she's built pretty much like she is now. So when the hell was she starving?https://www.flickr.com/photos/silentmiaow/albums/72157601049104805https://www.flickr.com/photos/silentmiaow/albums/72157601047589100
I was also thinking about her wishlists for medical supplies and everyone, including me, wondered why she needed all those things if she lives in a special need apartment building and has multiple caregivers coming in every day. I had a theory. Is it possible that this apartment complex is just a regular complex and she's just lying about it being one of those communities for the disabled because it fits her story? Perhaps there aren't all these caregivers and staff that work there, but she needs all those medical supplies from Amazon so she can pretend she's getting round-the-clock treatment.

I had an acquaintance who never had anyone encourage her to get over her dislike of the change of sensation in bathing. She would go six weeks without it, and then have a bath. She had long, filthy nails and messy, frizzy, greasy hair, and the couch seat she sat on had big gashes from it from… I don't know? Maybe skin bacteria? Her ass ate the couch, and there was oil staining on it.
It was so awkward when everyone used to bring food for the nights spent in the house she shared as a group, because she'd stick her fucking disgusting hands into a bowl of chips, chocolates, sweets etc and no one would touch them for the rest of the night.
you are a good person.
If she really has gastroparesis that bad she wouldn't be that big. If it's as bad as she says she'd be puking up everything. She wouldn't even be able to eat normal sized meals and her diet would be heavily restricted. And the feeding tube would be total restriction.
I'm surprised at how quickly she went from normal looking to balloon with special needs haircut.
It's really bizarre. I wouldn't doubt there's something actually wrong with her. But it's probably not anywhere near as bad as she claims. The rest is just attention whoring.>>243585
The first thing I thought when I saw that pic was "bad Slash cosplay".
I meant to add something to this when I wrote it the first time. She has repeatedly referred to her cat Fey as a service animal who helps her when her muscles "freeze up". I don't think Fey is anything other than a regular pet. If she were really a service animal, wouldn't she be with Amanda at all times out in public? From what I've seen, Amanda is out in public a lot a doctor's appointments, therapy, etc., and that cat never appears to be present.
Speaking of Amanda being in public all the time, she never appears to have any type of aide with her. How could someone as severely impaired as she claims to be go out in public alone? She also mentions that she likes crocheting and often takes her yarn and hooks out in public with her and does it while waiting for buses and things. She says people are often fascinated by her knitting and start conversations with her about it, saying something like "It's nice that knitting gives me such readily-available social interaction with others". Well, I'd like to know how she communicates with these people. Does she use her device? Does she just sit there? Does she start making that stupid "ee-ee-ee" noise from that video where she claims to be overloaded? Nothing about her personal anecdotes ever makes sense.
Also, do they have a disability bus thing in her state like pic related?
Is that what she means when she takes the bus?
Vermont doesn't have access a ride. They just use local companies to transport disabled people.
Some insurance companies like Medicaid will also pay for transportation.
Here's an article from a blog about Droopy (the weirdo who says Amanda copied her life) vs. Amanda. The article itself talks about how vaccines are causing autism, so that's not too interesting. But look at the fifth and sixth user comments. Someone is trying to say that Amanda was bullied at college by people who "tried to convince her she was crazy". Again, Amanda is the victim.http://axinar.blogspot.com/2007/12/drooooopy-vs-amanda-baggs.html
FWIW, I think Droopy is pretty out there herself and I don't necessarily believe that Amanda appropriated her life story, but I still think Amanda is largely full of it.
>>244855>putting your actual email in the email field

This is the biggest indicator that she's lying about her conditions. No nursing agency would leave the responsibility of purchasing medical supplies up to someone who is supposedly incapable of using a stove or wiping their own ass.

Maybe if he started out light, he got progressively more and more resistant? Am more interested in how the natural repulse reaction doesn't kick in. I've heard some people with Huntington's disease don't show reactions to disgust.
Oh geez. :( This is so horrible but I can't stop looking

Raja, please stay away from public toilets.
It's not like she's incapable of removing her excess facial hair, losing weight, or dressing well. Just doing those 3 things would make a world of difference. She could also wear makeup, which is basically magic.
She's going to be walleyed no matter what, but that's really her only issue that she can't fix. Sure, her personality is shit, but she obviously revels in it, so I don't think we can blame her genes for it. She goes out of her way to exacerbate it.

What a beautiful creature, truly we are blessed to live on a planet where such beings exist. I worry that they can't breathe properly, though, a bit like pugs.

This is mostly TL;DR, but holy shit she actually talks about "playing crazy" in this interview as well as trying to fit autistic stereotypes. It's about halfway through the other bullshit. http://blog.donnawilliams.net/2007/07/03/putting-autism-on-trial-an-interview-with-amanda-baggs/
Her hair isn't even that thick. I have a birds nest mane as thick and frizzy as hers but more wavy and simple fucking shampoo, conditioner, and a brush while it's wet is the answer.
I'm pretty sure you have to TRY to get parts that stick out like in >>207388
Oh my god. JUST DON'T EAT THE CANDY IT'S NOT WORTH IT.
I'd give up sweets forever before I'd ever relegate myself to something called a "burp cup" in order to eat it.
said, it's not good for your hair.
The real answer is correct shampoo\conditioner + mask and softened water. It's very important to use softened water to wash hair.
Sorry I'm derailing but what the fuck is 'softened water'? I've never heard of that.>>252686
And is using a wide-toothed comb in the shower okay? I usually do that and skip the brushing when I get out of the shower because it fucks up my curls.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if everything is made specifically for wheelchair users, why isn't the door wider?
Why does she have her feeding tube hanging out of her clothes so often? I'm sure those can easily be covered up by most clothes.
Does it help her feel more like a special snowflake if it's hanging out for everyone to see? I feel like that's just really unsanitary.
There is absolutely no reason to have a feeding tube visible when dressed and you are correct in it is very unsanitary and is at an increased risk for microorganisms entering that thing causing a nasty infection. This beast doesn't seem to mind though and probably creams itself with all the extra attention from having that crusty thing hanging out.>>253027
Kek. Yer a wizard harry.
The consensus is she doesn't actually have a cognitive disability, right? Just another acid-burnout kid?
Because I really wonder if she tries to look this deformed, if she enjoys looking like the worst of the worst kind of mountain hag.
She's at risk for serious staff infection. I guarantee she messes with it for tumblr photos, her dirty fingers fiddling it.
I wouldn't be surprised if she's had a few bouts with fucking MRSA.
OT but a while ago, I went through like every post on her blog and there was a story about her going into a forest and fucking a half-decomposed deer carcass and kissing it's rotted out eye socket.
But she also said that her parents were making her get help and she hasn't been since like 2013/2014 so I really hope she did get better.
Why did I read that. Why.

Imagine walking down the street and running into this.
It's strange how no one comes forward after 1998 saying they know her at all. Did she just disappear into solitary confinement and convince herself sick?
The abuse allegation to her brother might have something to do with the excessive drug use as a teen though, and most likely where the PTSD has come from. The death of her father won't have helped, either. I don't know why people don't just say they're fucked up instead of making things up for attention, like anyone wouldn't be sympathetic to her if she'd been raped by her brother?

>>253397My post contains spoilers from the link
Honestly, as depraved as it may sound in writing, I sipped a Mountain Dew while reading that with an eyebrow raised.
This entire thing sounds entirely fake. I'm unsurprised by the things humans are capable of. However, I am not buying that the kind of story this "person" (a humiliation fetishist) wrote would have ended with her "waking up in the hospital." It just sounds like a lazy storyteller who got tired of the character and didn't know where to go with the story.
*EDIT: There is a post in the comments claiming to post the other part of her story about when she was in the hospital. Apparently she wants us the readers to believe she was in a "coma" for but three days. And was never confronted by doctors as to why there were traces of meat and hundreds of maggots crawling in her vagoo. Sounds like OP just googled symptoms of TSS on Wiki and wrote the rest of it around that.
So this writer is going to get off on thinking her pussy is ruined, soiling her own sleeping space, and essentially dumpster diving for the pleasure. Yet she's not gonna spill the juicy, equally humiliating deets that surely would have happened in the hospital? She's not going to say how she "came" with humiliating embarrassment after she made her mother upset and lost her job? She can write anonymously on the internet about stuffing maggots and feces in her pussy but can't reveal the discussion between her mother while she was in the hospital for…reasons? Secrets? And her mother magically "understands" this kind of self-destructive fetish? Haha what?
Nope. This story is a big fat fake. If you're into shock stories, I could write one better and with more details.
I refuse to look at the pics but are we sure it's not just rice and not maggots? maybe even cut up noodles if any of them are curved. theres lots of ways to fake maggots and rotting meat for pictures (worked in an adult haunted house for a few years) so it could easily be faked several ways (i.e. rice and tenderized meat with food coloring)
The chances of her doing that to herself, going to the hospital and then still being allowed to live outside of a psych ward is extremely low since thats blatant and totally calculated self harm and theres a million reasons why she wouldnt still be around on th internet if she pulled it off
I know I've proven I'm a desensitized sickfuck already, but I have actually seen videos of maggots infesting vaginas and penises online before. But usually the cause of that is due to someone being homeless, drug addicted, or a combination of both in addition to being attacked by shit like bot flies.
Like I understand how people like that find themselves in those kinds of circumstances because they're in a delirious state, mentally ill, or can't seek help. But I would have to see time-stamped evidence of some first world dumbbitch essentially killing herself with maggots and not rushing to the hospital at the first sign of serious infection.
If anyone, not just autistics, walks into traffic, you should try to stop them. Not only the person who walks into traffic could get hurt, but obviously also the other people participating in traffic. Isn't this common sense? She really does her best to seem retarded.
What I do find annoying, is when people baby autistics. Just because an autistic seems
distracted in your eyes while walking on the pavement, doesn't mean you should force them to hold your hand or anything like that. But if
they actually walk into traffic, yeah you have to stop them.
I don't think people can just get locked up in psych wards anymore
If they don't want treatment they're not forced to get it
She isn't normal, but she doesn't have the conditions she claims to have.
She almost certainly has Munchhausen.
You're correct. Autism IS a spectrum but there must be certain criteria present, usually the following:
-lack of eye contact [mild children/adults may make eye contact and smile]
-repetitve behaviors like opening and closing a door, flipping light switches, etc
-usually speech delays
and so on.
You HAVE to have some of these criteria in order to be diagnosed with autism. There used to be something called PPD but that does not exist anymore in the DSM.

Service animals can only be dogs or miniature horses. Cat can be an emotional support animal but that designation has no public access rights, only housing rights.
So a cat cannot be a service animal.
Depends on where you live, anon.
Not every country, state, county, etc even have any laws about service animals.
Which woman in what picture?
Had a classmate with Cushing in HS, it makes you weird chubby (skinny legs, barrel body), but it doesn't turn you into a flaming retard or an immobile death fat blob.
I've never heard of psychedelics causing or worsening autism or negatively impacting intelligence/IQ. The worst psychedelics can do is worsen mental illness or bring out latent mental illness, like schizophrenia or other psychosis-related disorders.
If anyone has any evidence against this, I'd actually like to see it because I've never read anything like that.
don't think this is what anon was talking about but interesting and related;
There's a bit of literature out there about schizoid personality disorder or early schizophrenia being misdiagnosed as high functioning autism at an appreciable rate. I imagine though the diagnosis is changed if the person then starts to deteriorate or exhibit worse symptoms, due to drug use or not.
I don't think that's what happened to this… thing. But it's hard to tell, everything she says is lies and she obviously has some sort of medical professional believing her version of events.>>357403>>357412
Yeah, the second anon is right. The pattern of use you're talking about does exist and cause psychosis though, just with with stimulants. It was really common back when doctors were prescribing housewives tons of "pep pills". Drug induced psychosis can occur after one trip on very strong hallucinogens, I think the type of trip is more important in the case of hallucinogens, because as the other anon said; your tolerance becomes so high they no longer work for a substantial time period.
People who are more susceptible to paranoid, grandiose thoughts are likely to have a "Bad trip" that leads to them exhibiting psychosis like symptoms. Instead of feeling like they're one with the universe or something nice and spiritual like that, they think they're at the center of a grand conspiracy. and just like the people who felt great are influenced by it when they're sober, so are the people who had a bad time.
It can literally tip people right over the edge into insanity, not that it's hopeless they can't recover though.
It is more frequent in people who multi-drug use though, and chronic pot users.
I think the only way she could've got fucked on hallucinogens every day; is if she had access to an actual bottle of LSD (to increase the dosage higher and higher on a daily basis) and the chances of an average joe getting their hands on something like that is extremely unlikely… she wouldn't be able to increase the dosages with regular tab acid, the tolerance would kick in after a couple of days, she would have to be a chemist to produce anything more than 250 mics of LSD, (and that was the dosage the creator of it made himself)
It sounds like a case of dumbass college peers making up stories to explain her psychosis, or as you mentioned - she was mixing regular tab acid with uppers on a daily basis, hallucinogens are very unlikely to be the sole cause and source of her problems though.
Samefag here >>358010
I just forgot to mention that what her college peers seemed to be describing is something that gives the effects of schizophrenia… for all we know, it was more than likely she was taking dissociatives like DXM (which is commonly found in cough syrups)… I bet you anything she was hitting up the pharmacies and stocking up on over-the-counter shit like Robitussin or Benylin for a cheap dissociative trip.
It makes sense, especially considering it's a common drug abused by teenagers and fits in with the fact that students are usually short of money a lot of the time. It's cheap, legal and easy to get ahold of and taking enough of it gives a dissociative effect similar to the symptoms of schizophrenia.
I think it's like a car accident.. you just have to… I think in her uglyness she looks… cartoon-esque. or caricature-esque.
a living caricature…
She's one of my abiding fascinations in terms of lolcows. I first saw her famous video as part of a presentation about alternative and augmentative communication, and it just looked… off. Then I read her blog, where she really can't keep it straight why she needs a feeding tube (at times it's dysphagia and avoiding aspiration, at other times it's gastroparesis, then something about textures), and generally plays up the whole 'poor autistic flower in a fascist world that treats her like a burden' angle (the very title of the blog, Ballastexistenz, is so fishing for someone to tell her that no, you're a wonderful precious flower and we don't want to herd you into a camp of course!). Based on her former friends' statements (many of whom, tbh, are cows in their own right), I used to think she fried her brain with LSD and other hallucinogens but I'm starting to think she is a garden variety munchie who got into things before hypermobility, EDS, POTS and the rest were trendy, and latched on to this autism spiel. There are some very rare etiologies of acquired autism (for example, a rare autoimmune encephalitis called anti NMDA receptor autoimmune encephalitis can cause psychosis as well as symptoms that are pretty damn close to an acquired form of autism), but short of those very rare conditions and instances of very evident brain damage, this kind of adult onset autism just doesn't happen.

early autism shows first solid signs around 3, usually motor function and in severe cases prolonged language acquisition or nearly none at all. With the severity in adulthood it must have been noticeable quite early.
If that's the case, she actually looks really young for her age given her weight. Weird.
Looking at all of these pictures is pretty depressing, given how she turned out. It seems on the surface like she had a comfy life. Not gonna make an armchair diagnosis, but given her attention-seeking and illness-faking, she probably ran into some sort of problem as a kid, despite how nice her childhood looks in pictures. Behavior like this usually doesn't spring out of nowhere.
