Robyn Laura Brown (currently @bujospoonie on Instagram) is the epitome of an attention-seeking, sick role-obsessed person with Munchausen By Internet (see below for more info). People with MBI either fake illnesses or exaggerate/deliberately worsen existing illnesses for attention. She has a laundry list of alleged mental and physical illnesses and conditions which may or may not be legit, and has been caught in countless examples of lies and inconsistencies. She is a frequenter of chronic illness/spoonie communities online for nearly every vague, questionable disorder, especially the "trendy" ones. She sees doctors constantly and blows the tiniest of issues into mountainous "crises." Virtually everything she shares is related in some way to her illness and suffering.
Some of her hobbies include: taking selfies that showcase her alleged illnesses, disabilities and medical paraphernalia; making "pill art' (spelling her screen names out in meds); taking pictures of random people on the bus and ranting about how they are glaring at her for sitting in a disabled seat or how much they trigger
her, how much she loves work, collecting braces and finger splints, making her illnesses worse, creating more drama than Lifetime, collecting medical alert necklaces, bracelets, wallet cards and used EKG stickers, fucking with her wounds to keep them from healing (she kept a laparoscopic appendectomy wound open for MONTHS) while claiming her body is shutting down, and ranting about social injustices toward young people with disabilities.
Robyn has a litany of social media accounts with multiple aliases and profiles on Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter, going back years. All are sickness-oriented, and she seems to change them whenever she has some sort of "crisis" or people catch onto her bullshit. She lives in the UK and works for the NHS as a ward clerk in the maternity dept. She's in her late 20's and engaged to her fiance, Zak (who seems to avoid mentioning her on his Facebook account).

"…the advent of online support groups, combined with access to vast stores of medical information, enabled individuals seeking to gain sympathy by relating a series of harrowing medical orPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
