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).

More info on MBI:
From Dr. Marc Feldman, who first described Munchausen By Internet in 2000:
"…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 or psychological problems that defy comprehension to misuse the groups.[1] Communication forums specializing in medical or psychological recovery were established to give lay users support in navigating often confusing and frustrating medical processes and bureaucracy. Communities often formed on those forums, with the goal of sharing information to help other members. Medical websites also became common, giving lay users access to literature in a way that was accessible to those without specific medical training. As Internet communication grew in popularity, users began to forgo the doctors and hospitals often consulted for medical advice. Frequenting virtual communities that have experience with a medical problem, Feldman notes, is easier than going through the physical pain or illness that would be necessary before visiting a doctor to get the attention sought. By pretending to be gravely ill, Internet users can gain sympathy from a group whose sole reason for existence is support. Health care professionals, with their limited time, greater medical knowledge, and tendency to be more skeptical in their diagnoses, may be less likely to provide that support."

What are those ribbons on her arm for? I'm a nurse and I honestly judge when patients come in with attention-seeking tattoos (semi colon, etc). It's ALWAYS the drug seekers/malingerers. It's VERY rare for someone to come in with a tattoo like that who DOESN'T crave drugs/attention/our time.

Welcome to Robyn. The Munchiest of all Munchies. She will do blatant attention grabs and skip accounts when someone calls her on it. Any malingerer you've met that you feel is awful, I assure you Robyn is likely much, much worse. She's the prime example of Munchausen by Internet. Dr. Feldman should take her as a case study.

Her Tramadol is ER, not IR. She holds up the box in her third introduction video here. >>197196

Besides, the easiest and legal way to obtain it is through a doctor, they hand the shit out like candy. No point in risking jail time to rob her for one script that they can legally get elsewhere like she did. If she was advertising Oxy or something similar, then yes robbing is a real risk. Otherwise yeah someone would likely just swipe the bag and try their luck if it's a complete stranger on the street.

Interestingly, she also admits to taking two a day. That's one of those meds you're only ever supposed to take one of in 24 hours. Doubling ER meds increases the risk of OD (and seizures in this case) since it has a longer half-life and therefore stays in your system longer. Wonder if she's actually doing it or if she's lying. If she is doubling up, she needs to either tell her doctor or her doctor needs to be fired.

She's probably basing it off the general price it'd be if she wasn't getting them for free.

Why do you think she is getting them for free? I had to pay for my prescriptions when I lived in the UK; they're not provided by the NHS unless you're unemployed/on disability etc. Is there a reason she would be getting them without having to pay?

No. 215228

>>215226
she did a post on one of her many tumblr accounts about her meds costing almost £1000 a year then a brag post on IG about how she gets meds free now because of the epilepsy she doesn't even have.

No. 215239

>>215235
It's been a while since her fishing for an epilepsy diagnosis started. It's possible that she's conned people into giving her one by now, especially since they'd likely need some kind of proof to give her access to free scripts. The UK disability system is well known for being god awful and denying or providing the bare minimum of benefits to people with genuine conditions, so them demanding proof would make sense in that context. Between then and now she'll have had plenty of exposure to the NHS system from the inside to know what would work.

No. 215255

She commented on one of her backlogging instagrams when someone questioned her, that she got an 'official diagnosis' by now.
Even though every test always comes up 'normal'. But wait – the seizures are getting worse the more medication she takes, how strange?! Oh, sweet sweet #spoonielife

No. 215546

I'm assuming it's in case they fall and get a concussion from smacking their head on the seats or floor. It's a pretty confined space and injuries are a higher risk in confined spaces versus, say, going to the store.

don't get me wrong, i understand the risk she's getting at. i've had seizures on buses myself and even though i was sat down, i ended up falling into the aisle and getting hurt. but it's just one of those risks, not something to whine about. i'm surprised she doesn't wear a helmet…

His was going on around the time I first followed her. The cut to her hand was a straight line, very like a self inflicted razor cut.

On this trip to A&E they suggested her wound wasn't serious enough for them and sent her to the walk in centre / minor injuries unit (which working in the NHS she should have had the sense to do herself.) It was the minor injuries unit that was evacuated.
If I'm right, she wrote a letter of complaint to A&E complaining about being treated so poorly.

No. 219903

This annoyed me so much, how can she claim that injury was an emergency. It was a superficial incision which she clearly done herself if you ask me. "Something unknown" bollocks you could easily identify the item which cut you so specifically. To claim as well, tell me how that is life threatening in anyway!

No. 219911

>>219903
She kept whinging about how because she has epilepsy she should have arrived by ambulance because she had injured herself during a seizure but she did the NHS a favour by getting her dad to drive her.

All she really needed to do was clean the wound, put a dressing on it and maybe see her GP or a nurse at her GP surgery the following morning. Her trip to A&E was a waste of time because they didn't even stitch it. Of course, she fucked with it for days, stretching it open with those grimy sausage fingers.

No. 219912

>>218190
Seriously! "Sprain" and "dislocation" are mutually exclusive terms. As soon as something dislocates, it's not a sprain, period.

I don't even get why she'd mention the real diagnosis. Obviously she wanted it to be a dislocation, so instead of trying to claim a sprain and dislocation are the same thing, why not just say it was dislocated, period? Did she knock herself stupid during her definitely not fake I swear seizure?

My best friend died from SUDEP, so watching Robyn milk this epilepsy dx now really burns my beans more than anything tbh.

>>219911
This is another epilepsy thing I remember from my friend. If he had a seizure he didn't want an ambulance called unless it was BAD, and if he was injured, he wanted to just be driven to hospital like normal. Ambulances are expensive yo. I've heard this from other epileptics too, to not call ambulance unless it's really really bad, because so many ambulance rides add up rather quickly. We're America tho. Since Robyn's got her healthcare probably paid for by the government since NHS, she probably doesn't care and feels no qualms about wasting resources and money.

Yeah my friends and family all know that unless I'm seriously injured (as in head injury or broken bones) or the seizure hasn't stopped after five minutes / I've had multiple seizures without regaining consciousness then there is absolutely no need to call an ambulance. All that will result in is me being pissed off and a wasted call out for the ambulance.

yeah, i gave my work instructions on what to do if i had a seizure and i specified "do not call an ambulance unless i ask for one, or if I am severely injured, turning blue, or not coming out of the seizure within approx 90 seconds"
like the hospital isn't going to really do anything if i have a regular seizure, there's no point in even going. the only time i went to the hospital after a seizure was after my first one at 4 years old, and after another at 18 when i just did not feel good after and it turned out i had an infection which triggered the seizure. they almost sent me home that time too until i vomited everywhere.

literally going to a&e for a seizure as a diagnosed epileptic is pointless as fuck unless you're still seizing/have an injury they can actually deal with.

I've ended up in A&E a few times due to clusters of Tonic Clonic seizures and a couple of lengthy seizures that were triggered by infections and I still felt like I didn't need to be there. Sometimes, if you're out in public or with someone who doesn't know your medical info or whatever, an ambulance is probably gonna be called. I think anyone with seizures has dealt with the irritation of waking up to a paramedic prodding and poking and asking questions at some point. I bet Robyn would love that and would happily get rushed to hospital rather than say "you know what guys, I'm fine. I just want to go home and sleep". And even if she did sign the refusal of transfer form I bet she'd keep it and glue it to a special area in her hallway to pose in front of for instagram pics.

I have a munchausen friend in real life and she straight up doesn't care about how much debt she's in because of medical bills. She mooches off other people and is hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt (she's only 24). It doesn't matter to her becasue the thirst for attention is greater than the fear of losing everything.

Of fucking course. I live in a state that accepted mean ole' "obummers" medicaid expansion and it's the reason why my mother treated her breast cancer. Otherwise she'd lose the house and she specifically refused medical care because my Dad had just lost his job. We dragged her to the hospital where they said they'd help financially. She's alive today because of expanded financial assistance.

And to get on topic - I'm pretty convinced my former roommate fakes her "disorder" Claimed to have MS, short term paralysis and a variety of other imaginary disorders that have costs thousands. She does it for attention and I've noticed her faking symptoms. She's married and her husband is pretty much bankrupt trying to pay for care for imaginary symptoms.

It's complicated and something I've been reading up on since discovering Robyn. From what I can tell, their hands are tied. They have to treat the presenting symptoms regardless just in case.

In my experience, some paramedics get pissed off with dealing with a seizure from a known epileptic who didn't need an ambulance but in comparison, the last time my friends witnessed one of my seizures, panicked and called an ambulance, the three paramedics (one rapid response and two from the actual ambulance) were more than happy to have a simple call that didn't require a transfer to A&E. In fact, one of them had some fun flirting with a traffic warden while the others did my obs. I guess it depends on the time of day and the individual paramedics.

The NHS isn't free. We pay for it through taxes,so people like her are wasting taxpayers money. They're also draining the NHS to the point that certain cancer drugs won't be prescribed to some people in certain areas of the UK.

sage for ot but one of my parents is a gp here in uk and they has lots of munchies. here tho due to shared med records you can refuse referrals pretty easily. the gp surgery my parent works at locks referrals for munchies except for 2 week rule (suspected cancer). but it doesn't work cos munchies seek out attention anywhere and everywhere. if they don't get attention from gp they'll call out ambulances etc. ambulance service do have houses they do not send ambulances to though under any circumstances due to misuse. you can also be prosecuted for having too much police/ambulance use here too bizarrely.

People don't bitch about Obamacare, they bitch about having to pay for insurance, which keeps getting more expensive. So the thought is, "I have to pay a hefty insurance bill every month, but insurance won't cover anything until I've already spent $X within a year, and I never manage to spend that much, so why the fuck do I even have insurance? Oh, right, because I'm forced to."

Now if you get really sick of have an accident, Obamacare's awesome, because you're not going to go bankrupt. But the average person isn't worried about that. That's why so few people had insurance before they were legally obliged to.

Obamacare is absolutely a step in the right direction, but without a public option, the average person gets nothing out of it other than a smaller bank account balance.

And that's why Trump, who kept claiming Obamacare was "an absolute disaster," is now pivoting and saying his magical replacement for Obamacare will cover everybody (though he's failed to elucidate how). But buying insurance won't be mandatory. He'll get rid of the part that's face-fucking people, but won't have a public option (muh taxes!), but it'll cover everybody. Somehow. Trust me.

Well she did get that cut on her hand as a result from the seizure, but unless her GP's surgery was closed for the day, isn't that something her GP could've dealt with? I mean to me as Amerifat "cut on hand" seems more like a "go to doctor/immediate care" problem than a "rush to emergency room" one.

>>219973
I'm a bit jealous, and maybe when I was studying there I should've actually used it more, but my biggest issues at the time were occassional random heart flutters and asthma attacks (and since I'm white trash who never went to doctor as a kid except on shot day, i don't even know when's the right time to go tbh and am frightened). Figured better to not waste doctor's time over stuff like that. But I liked the system of just being registered at a surgery based on where I lived. Here my insurance company wants me to pick a GP based on what's in their plan and I'm kind of lost at that tbh. Also here you MUST have insurance or you pay a penalty, but thankfully I work for a huge company so I get insurance thru work. I feel so terribly for people stuck on the healthcare marketplace in the US because I've had to deal with that before and it's a clusterfuck and usually very expensive.
I've heard some bad things about the NHS tho too like when my BF's brother needed gallbladder surgery, instead of getting the surgery right away they just let him stay sick and in pain and blissed out on morphine for months instead of getting him surgery. Their mum had to threaten to take him to a different hospital to get him what he needed.
I also worry about your nurse situation there, because it seems like a lot of nurses are from outside the EU and are going to be in trouble with all the newer, tougher visa guidelines that your government puts through, but that's a different story for a different time. It's just scary the idea of possibly losing so many nurses because they're just as integral in saving peoples lives tbh.

THE EPILEPSY SAGA: In research for this case, I found it interesting to learn that while people do fake seizures (there are even medical slang terms for these illustrious patients' exploits: "feizures" for fake seizures and "status dramaticus" for fake status epilepticus), there is a big gray area in the 'pseudoseizure' category and a lot of cautionary tales among medical professionals regarding calling out a faker. Medically, the term 'pseudoseizure' has been used to describe convulsions which do not originate via electrical disturbances in the brain. They may or may not be indicative of fakery. Most are not. Due to negative emotions and implications resulting from factitious incidents, this term has come to be viewed derogatorily, and for this reason, clinicians consider Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizure (PNES) as a more apt term for seizures not due to pathological electrical activity in the brain. There are organic (physical) causes and psychological ones of PNES, but only a small number are manufactured consciously. The definitive diagnostic criterion for epilepsy requires a positive EEG, and in Robyn's case of course this has never happened. It is possible that treatment be initiated for suspected epilepsy, but in Robyn's case I just can't believe that her psychological differential would come back unremarkable. As readers, we do not know whether Robyn's doctors have diagnosed her with PNES, and she could very well be converting the term to 'epilepsy' for her self-supposed legitimacy. Do to the diversity of causes and presentation of PNES, this is an area in which a patient with factitious disorder has latitude when it comes to believability. For people like Robyn, this characteristic is obviously appealing.
See the following article for more information on epilepsy, pseudoseizures and a cautionary tale from a physician to other clinicians: http://www.jailmedicine.com/pseudoseizures-the-right-approach/
Two things he points out regarding factitious disorder patients and those with genuine pseudoseizures are 1. these patients are often relieved to not have been diagnosed with epilepsy, and 2. confronting factitious patients often has negative results; they will just try harder to 'prove' their symptoms are real.
This article discusses differential diagnosis and profiles of PNES patients:
http://www.mdedge.com/currentpsychiatry/article/59842/neurology/psychogenic-or-epileptic-seizures-how-clinch-diagnosis
There is this overall message in the literature, as well: when in doubt, treat as if the episodes are real. Very appealing to Munchies.

Regarding Robyn, her euphoric ejaculations about her diagnosis and medications are, frankly, suspect-as-it-gets. Let us begin a review of her fucktardery.

Epilepsy Saga PART 3: August 22, 2014. Success! She is always so happy when she sets out for an appointment with a specific objective and the clinician says whatever she hopes to hear. In this case, she wanted to begin the 'diagnosis journey' and scored some prescriptions for diagnostic tests.
It is interesting to note that she mentions her doc saying her migraines are related to her seizures. I researched her migraine history and it is entirely plausible that she took the headaches as far as she could for #spoonie attenshun points, got bored of it and escalated her symptoms to seizures. Over the course of her years of known social media presence, she has consistently followed this MO: She has spurts of very active, intense attention-seeking drama, then as it wanes, emphasis and escalation of posts regarding a new symptom or exacerbation of a previous issue begins. I find it interesting that she used to blame her headaches on her sooper seereeus allurgeez, but the desired diagnosis and blame factor this time was epilepsy. I have researched her allergy saga as well but will not include it here because this bitch is long enough already!
Because she has correlated her migraines to her alleged epilepsy, however, I have included some of her migraine drama in this saga.

They are just boring ol' common illnesses though, so it's doubtful that either would bring her any munchie pleasure.

I'll never understand why "spoonies" want to make their illness define what they are. I'm not epileptic, but have two friends who are and known others in the workplace. They've always "warned" other they're epileptic and what to do if they have a seizure. They've had seizures and get on with it. Only one had a grand mal in college and was sent to hospital, but he's got shit loads of other disabilites.

None of them bang on about it. I fear having epilepsy because I used to fear having a plain ol' anxiety attack in public, let alone a seizure when I'm by myself, so no way am I undermining the condition. These people like Robyn though. Why do they think they're so fascinating? Same with other conditions. They're not exactly raising awareness or giving any reassurance that the problem's manageable for someone recently diagnosed.

The Allergy Saga, highlighted by the surgical mask schtick, was a relatively quick-flame drama for Robyn.

The masks appear for the first time with an accompanying poor-me #spoonielife rant. All of the sudden, they are absolutely critical in preventing very seeryus allergic reactions. She is already setting us up for her needing to wear them all the time. This gets more pronounced as time goes on, but I am sure they were uncomfortable because it didn't last.
Note the 'bedridden every other day' part of her poor-me baaawww session. Really?

"I can't even go 2 hours without my #surgicalmask." She is also implicating her pets as a major allergen. Really? That's why all your snuggly pet pics never mention it before now, nor do you appear symptomatic in any of them? But, munch on, munchie kween.

This super poor-me baaaawwww post which has been shared on lolcowchan previously for it's OTT cringe and Robyn's admission of not wanting to treat her injury because ~*baaawwww why should I care if the medikul ppl didn't*~. She did a hospital run the day before for a soft tissue injury and they gave her a high-arm sling but she felt she was somehow neglected. That event precipitated this meltdown.
I am sharing it now because it is notable in light of the previous post's claims. Wait Robyn, don't your pets cause you such brutal allergy attacks that you can't be without your mask and will have an attack within 2 hours from ambient allergenic material in your home, never mind with them right in your face? B-but…when you're baaawwwwing on about dat awful #spoonielife, crying for an hour, you can absolutely cuddle your dog to your face the whole time! Makes totez sense.

Robyn discusses ~*muh #chronicmigraines.*~ She states that crying can bring one on. If, in fact, she has migraines and seizures, and if the two are in fact related, this would support the PNES theory. But that's assuming anything Robyn says is legit, and that in and of itself is reaching.

Finally, we get to where she again correlates her #chronicmigraines to her #seizures. She also ideates for us the desire to attempt to rush her tests. Shit takes too long when you need your attenshun fix, yo! Just focusing on super-serious chronic allergies wasn't doing it for her. Not enough asspats. She's still got her precious masks for now, though she phases them out soon. Once she ramps up her migraine complaints in an effort to get epilepsy testing moved up, that becomes her primary medical fixation.

I'd much rather be at home in my own bed than sat in hospital where the lights are always too bright, you're getting podded and poked every ten minutes and have to listen to freaks like Robyn sobbing on the phone to Sane Line because a surgeon told her to stop playing with her surgical scar instead of enabling her.

>"I am currently seeing a neurologist…"
No Robyn. You have an appointment for your very first consult with a neuro. Every drug has warnings of some sort, and no one has yet cross-evaluated her treatments for her other conditions yet. She just needed something to baaawww about. This is classic Munchie behavior. When they don't get their way, they get upset and may try harder to make their condition seem worse or more real, and/or malign the 'offending' physician as much as possible.

Robyn has a migraine. Again, she is counting down to her ~*glorious neurology appointment uwu*~ and also discusses her seizure symptoms and history in the comments. She says that the only reason her doc took her seriously about the seizures is because she had a witness (Mr. Doormat, of course). She also recounts that her docs blew her off about her migraines and told her to just take paracetamol (Tylenol). Somewhere along the Munchie line she did end up getting put on Imitrex for them, but it is interesting to see her track record of diagnosis shopping and fails along the way.

Do you know what really irks me, the fact she's saying things like >>seeing neurologist about my epilepsy.
You had some "seizures" Robyn, chill out. It take months to get a diagnosis. Also, her doormat has no medical training. I'm inclined to think that she may be fainting rather than seizing as fainting can cause mild jerking of the limbs which a worried partner might interpret as a seizure.
I mean, we know she was probably faking but that's my differential dx.

This just reminded me… Epilepsy Saga PART 2.2 (didn't want to interfere).
Not even a month after her seizure in August 2014 when she was still in testing - see above: CT not done, neurologist not yet seen, she got _heavily_ drunk at a friend's wedding on 12/09/14.
>Even threw up in the bathroom cupboard because I was convinced it was the toilet. So #embarrassed.
pic related.

That's not something you do when you're waiting for a diagnosis. As an epileptic alcohol is one of the biggest triggers and if it's not you may enjoy a glass here or there but this is munchie in your face behaviour.

That's right. My neuro asks me every appointment if I plan to have children. There are other meds AND you would take smaller doses troughout the day - although you might start with the latter only after having conceived successfully.

The doc's notes here are fucking bizarre. Either the doc believes she has extremely mild epilepsy, or no epilepsy at all.

Levetiracetam is one of the mildest anti-epileptics available– as in it doesn't have such a drastic, immediate effect on seizures as do some of the others like idk Dilantin or Lamictal. It's considered so mild that it's only been extremely recently approved for monotherapy, wheras it used to be given to supplement another stronger drug.

When I started Levetiracetam, my first prescription was 500 mg twice a day, and I had really only started to have seizures the previous year. 1000 mg is like the very lowest dose they'll initially put someone on, even when the idea is to gradually up their dose to better control seizures.

For the amount of "grand mals" she's had, especially over what she's claimed as an 8-year period, you'd think the doctors would give her something a littler higher potency or dosage. 1000 mg wouldn't do shit for the frequency of seizures she's claiming to have.

And I think the docs are on to her too. If you're going to play it safe and give a possible faker an antiepileptic, Levetiracetam is the safest one to give them. It doesn't get processed through the liver, so there's no danger of damage, and the major side effects are mostly being angry or moody. (Which, for Robyn, being a huge cunt isn't that big a deal anyway.)

500 mg my ass. Either she fucking faked the bagged script itself, or her doctors figure she's a histrionic shitheel.

Also, and I've said it before, why didn't Robyn mention her "crippling" migraines at her super important neuro appointment especially after whinging about how she needed her MRI asap because of migraines. The neurologist would have prescribed an antiepileptic with a dual purpose such as topiramate or sodium valproate which are both used in migraine prevention.

Oh I agree. She obviously doesn't have it. But the person she claims to have gotten her EDS diagnosis from, and thus the referral for genetic testing, is a rheumatologist. Not a geneticist. So they would have less specific expertise to realize that she obviously doesn't have vascular type and that she's just stringing them along. The rheumatologist also focused on her ear lobes and claimed it was suggestive of EDS, and the Munchie Queen probably didn't let on that this symptom is likely connected to her microtia since she was getting what she wanted. So a combination of inadequate knowledge and a munchie patient leaving out important information leading to wasted resources.. again.

oh poor girl, a low dose for 'suspected' epilepsy and some OTC vitamin supplements. a lot of kids and teens have to get shit-tier orphan drugs, icds, and heavy heart medication for vasc and classic. there aren't even any studies as of yet showing links between hypermobile and epilepsy so that's just a spankin' choice on her part. how any practicing physician took her seriously is beyond me, hypermobile self diagnosis is already a fucked up running joke.

i remember one of the younger pediatric patients had vascular and did IG for some make up artsy-type stuff since his parents pulled him out of school. never once told anyone about having it and instead just self regulated away from social media when he'd get really severe. most genuine patients don't want people to know they have a condition let alone use it for internet brownie points and virtual asspats.

i feel pretty po'd knowing he's gone at 12 and she's around using hypermobility and glamour shots at medical institutes of all things to troll for attention because she's not interesting enough on her own. illnesses, conditions and prescriptions aren't fucking fashion statements to boost your follower count. learn a skill or at least learn to treadmill instead.

I know that some/if not most antiepileptic medication raises a woman's chance for birth defects, ranging from a few extra fingers/cleft lip to a messed up spine, a hole in a heart, lower intelligence and autism. Would she really rather keep up with her hobby of collecting pill marchendise instead?

She might become like the mother of the hooligans. if she can't prove she isn't disabled herself, why not give birth to your own poor suffering ~disabled~ child? or maybe if she shows everyone that she is a spoonie with a spoonie kid she would be the ultimate spoonie on the internet?

I wonder if Doormat has attempted to dump her yet and she's done something crazy to force him to stay with her, or if he's resigned himself to his fate and is doing the bare minimum in the relationship as a result.

And fuuuck that ring is ugly. Is it really the best she could come up with? "This could have been paid for by Zak working one shift." Okay, so money isn't the issue (unless they're shit with money and barely scraping by). Why buy that fugly thing instead of waiting a little while longer and saving up?

I wouldn't be surprised if forcing him to stay (amongst other things?) was a silent byproduct of the chemical burn saga. That one was quite intense and disturbing.
Another theory may be, that Zak himself would have feelings of guilt leaving her. She doesn't seem to have any friends, does she? She may not have to play the victim card, he’s just too caught up in it already.
And last but not least: they have bought a house together.

Yeah, you ought to be fucking happy you're not sick. But given that you probably have a pervasive personality disorder, you're probably enjoying all of this negative attention you're getting.

What's the matter, sweets? Your family and friends finally not buying that you're awwww so super srs sick??? Just go ahead and bust out the old regulars– jam a few fingers down your throat and pray to the porcelain god.

Here's the thing, you moron: I see asshole like you regularly at the specialists I need to go see. And it's clear the types of people you are, even from behind a closed door. Listening to someone verbally abuse the medical staff for something not going their way, watching someone being a snippy dickhead to the receptionist, is vastly, vastly different from actually sick people.

And what you morons can't quite seem to figure out that this shit is taxing. On many fucking levels. Actually sick people don't have the energy to be the level of raging crazy cuntiness that you pathological attention seeking whores manage to sustain.

So hey: go ahead. Harp on us for getting sick of your constant drain on the medical resources we truly need. How dare we be frustrated with someone who's physically healthy but just mentally ill?? Isn't that just as valid? Don't you need medical attention too, even if you aren't "that" kind of sick?

And as someone with a diagnosis of bpd, it really pisses me off when it gets thrown around as an insult or as a way to explain away behaviours we don't agree with or understand. I'm pretty sure Nicole doesn't have bpd but even if she dis, who cares? Borderline patients aren't all the way they're portrayed in the movies. Some of us actually have a sense of right and wrong and accept the treatment offered to us and try to fix ourselves.

I have somatic vomiting, that's my diagnosis. I've never once lied about that or tried to make out it's something it's not. I've been completely open and honest about my diagnosis.

As for sticking my fingers down my throat, I think by now if I were doing it then medical staff would have caught onto it.

I hate this kind of stereotyping of mental illness. And yes, before you say it isn't, personality disorders are a mental illness or at least they are considered that way and therefore treated that way in the UK. I've been through treatment, I've worked hard to change the pervasive issues. I am and never have been abusive. BPD manifests in many ways. For me it was impulsivity, self injury, suicide attempts. And one of the things I hate about a lot of other people with BPD is their insistence that they have a serious mental illness that will never go away. Because that's bullshit. If you want to recover, you can. I did and no longer considered to have a personality disorder.

Hahahahaha, and having had to live with a person like you, I can safely say that the people closest to you put up a veneer of support, because otherwise your whining, sulking, brooding, and tantrums are so stressful that they prefer you pacified that everyone "believes" you, than to constantly fight you to see reality.

The hardest thing to try to engage with is someone who clings to a false diagnosis when they aren't clinically delusional. Delusions, at least the actual traditional kind suffered from by those with psychotic disorders, can be treated with medication and therapy.

You are your ilk just have a pathological need for the attention of your preference. And your insane stamina for that incessant crave outlasts any normal person's desire to try to correct that pathological urge.

See, you can't even be medicated, because it's a personality disorder and not a traditional mental illness. You can't even treated unless you're actually interested in recovering from the disgusting behavior you enjoy in engaging.

http://www.merckmanuals.com/professional/psychiatric-disorders/somatic-symptom-and-related-disorders/factitious-disorder-imposed-on-self

"Factitious Disorders imposed on self." Which is a somatoform disorder, just as Nicole keeps blubbering about.

>>>Factitious disorder is falsification of physical or psychologic symptoms without an obvious external incentive; the motivation for this behavior is to assume the sick role. Symptoms can be acute, dramatic, and convincing. Patients often wander from one physician or hospital to another for treatment. The cause is unknown, although stress and a severe personality disorder, most often borderline personality disorder, are often implicated. Diagnosis is clinical. There are no clearly effective treatments.

Someone pointed out to her yesterday that fictitious disorder is a somatic illness and she kept saying they're not the same.

I don't know if you're illiterate, lazy, or just too fucking stupid to comprehend the link previously posted, so look at the little picture in this post.

The Merck Manuals consider "factitious" (not fictitious) disorder is a somatoform illness.

And if you bother to check out the grand total of five different subpages in that menu, none of the diagnoses section seem to specify that you need some bizarre hodge-podge of expressed symptoms.

Basically all you have to have is no actual physical problems, and a high rate of expressed concern for your perceived, but clinically unfounded, problems. You fucking dunce.

Psych and MBI anon here.

For the record, there's a couple of points you're confused or misinformed about. In the DSM 5, the diagnostic manual for the US, factitious disorder is listed under "somatic symptom and related disorders", but is not actually called a somatic disorder. It would be classified under the "related" section because of the fact that there is either no medical cause for the symptoms or because they are deliberately exaggerated to an unrealistic degree for attention. For somatoform disorder (now called somatic symptom disorder), the symptoms are not caused deliberately but rather an unconscious reaction of the mind to anxiety. When diagnosing factitious disorder, somatic symptom disorder is considered a differential diagnosis - the professional has to make sure that the symptoms are deliberately induced or exaggerated, not a consequence of anxiety resulting in attention seeking behavior. It is technically possible to have both from my understanding, but they are not the same thing. JBN is right about that specific detail.

However. To be clear, I don't like JBN. I argued with her the first time she wked Robyn, and just last night when I helped reveal she was wking herself. I do believe she's attention seeking and purposefully derailing threads or tipping cows in order to lavish in attention if she isn't getting enough on her own. But attention seeking behavior like that can be a component of somatic symptom disorder, as is the obsession with the severity of her symptoms or attempting to emphasize that they are genuine instead of somatic (yet still managing to argue that they're somatic…). That behavior lines up with the current diagnosis.

Either way, the best way to respond to her is to ignore her. Don't take the bait. She needs to deal with her issues with her actual professionals, and all we're doing by continuing to respond to her is feeding her need for attention. It reinforces the behavior. Let the thread go back to Robyn's bullshit. Continuing to argue this point will further derail the thread, which is exactly what JBN wants. Don't give it to her. Let it go after this and let's go back to bitching about Robyn. I'll even work on the EDS saga some more if that helps bring the topic back to its original point.

I'll definitely agree to this.

(To be clear, my harping on the factitious illness stuff was mostly to shut Nicole and her wking up. I do realize somatic and factitious illnesses are clinically different, but it's very helpful that they are considered broadly under the same umbrella.)

Okay! So for the EDS saga, we left off on part 64 from the last thread.
>>201344

With Robyn wiping most of her old IG accounts, she's gone and made my job a bit harder. Not impossible, I still have stuff to work with, but it does mean that I'll likely have to start referencing other sagas for the missing data such as the Appy Saga. There's actually a fair bit of relevant data in that one. For now though, let's continue!

Pt 65. January 26 2015. She’s at the doctor’s office to get a referral for her diagnosis, notes in hand. Note that only four people have liked the post. This becomes relevant later, when she jumps accounts and basks in the attention she craves. Comments that she’s so nervous her hands are shaking, but seems calm enough to be ranting on IG. Image quality is the same as usual too, suggesting that she wasn’t struggling to focus the image because of her shaking hands. Hm.

Pt 66. January 26 2015. She gets blood work done to rule out rheumatoid arthritis, and a possible referral to an orthopedic specialist regarding EDS. Says the doctor knew about EDS/HMS, but doesn’t want to send her to a rheumatologist. Rheumatologists are hit or miss here in the US, but my understanding of the UK system is that they’re pretty much the ones to go to for an EDS diagnosis since there are so few geneticists and the wait times to see them are ridiculously long. There are three important things to note here: the number of likes, the date she mentioned (February 4th) and the fact that she’s seeing an orthopedic specialist. Why? Because she goes prop shopping again, this time for a wheelchair, and makes sure to order shipping fast enough for it to arrive before the appointment. The specialist doesn’t bite. Buying a wheelchair as a prop to see an orthopedic specialist of all people was a really, really stupid move.

Pt 67. January 30 2015. Another intro post in the middle of the account. Strange to be doing it there when she’s going to jump accounts soon. Starts counting off the number of hospitals she has gone to, number of surgeries, number of dislocations, how many of each specific test she’s had, and a plethora of hashtag abuse. Is careful not to include certain things she’s already dropped like her chronic migraines, the allergies, or microtia. Claims it’s because she has more followers. I find this unlikely. Between parts 65 and 66, the more hashtags she adds, the more likes she gets. Now with all of these, she is up to 27. Needs to fish for that attention yo. It starts going down again later when she focuses on her super special EDS again.

Pt 68. February 1 2015. Split into multiple posts due to the length of the comments. Just a few days to go before the appointment, so quick, she needs another medical crisis to be taken seriously! Is back in the hospital claiming to be tachycardic and is attempting to blame it on EDS or epilepsy. Considering the appointment she’s gearing up for, she’s probably angling for EDS due to its correlations with dysautonomia.

For the record, there’s a lot of things that can cause an increased heart rate. Some easy to induce ones include low blood sugar and popping a cocktail of her plethora of pills. Her post just two days ago (pt 67, >>239291
) suggests that she’s on a “weight loss journey”, so she may have skipped meals for once and induced it that way considering her body wouldn’t be used to it. Sadly we’ll likely never know what she did specifically. Either way, the timing of this and the wheelchair purchase is incredibly suspect.

Some interesting things to note:

• She starts bitching about the overnight staff again. Somehow I doubt she was left sitting around for 3 hours without so much as her vitals being taken. We also have no way of knowing if the staff was extremely busy that night dealing with actual medical crises.
• She starts mentioning her dad’s BPM and ECG results. Attempting to tie in family history and could be where she gets some of her knowledge about how ECGs work. Could also explain some of the drive she has for being a munchie – the combination of her experience with microtia plus the attention her dad gets and craving it for herself. Either of those are part of the typical histories for munchies, let alone combined.
• More games of “who can have it worse” with the sole commenter. One mentions something about their experience, the other escalates. Rinse and repeat.
• Both the commenter and Robyn insist that the tachycardia must be related to EDS/HMS. Points toward her using this new hospitalization to “prove” to the orthopedic specialist that she has EDS. More fabricating of targeted proof in order to achieve a specific diagnosis in classic munchie style.
• Blames the staff for a blown vein. Even though they can’t help the fact that she has tiny veins and have to use something else. Switching to a vein that’s easier to access is SOP and saves the patient a ton of needle sticks.
• “Think I’ll try and avoid the emergency department as much as possible” For how long? Because the Appy saga seems to prove this fact wrong, considering that happened just a couple months later.

Pt 69.1, February 2 2015, broken up into multiple parts again. Two days to go before the appointment with the orthopedic specialist. So how can she prove that she has EDS? By buying a wheelchair. Let us recall pt 44, where she tells a commenter (who is a wheelchair user and makes an appearance here too, they’re the black censored commenter) “I need to be more like you”.
>>200533

Something really, really important to note: if she actually needed a chair, the orthopedic specialist would refer her to an occupational therapist or rehabilitation engineer and she could get one that is properly fitted. It would have been covered by the NHS as a medically necessary assistive device, either provided by them or given a voucher to purchase it. She would not need to buy it from Amazon days before the appointment. Instead of waiting to see if it was truly necessary, she ordered one just days before her appointment and got it shipped priority mail. After the appointment, it mysteriously disappears for daily use except for when she needs a dramatic picture, such as here >>187056

Purchase and use of props that are discarded when no longer needed, or that are only used in certain situations, is evidence of Munchausen’s or active malingering. It’s a major problem because it impacts how specialists perceive other patients that use those same assistive devices. When someone comes in with a medical device they obviously don’t need, it can further contribute to the professional’s perception of other patients that they think do not genuinely need the devices. This in turn makes it harder for people to get diagnosed and gain access to crutches or wheelchairs when they need them to function in society. As such, people that are legitimately ill and who use assistive devices frequently have to weigh the pros and cons of using them during critical appointments, since they don’t want to run the risk of being perceived as using it as a prop. On the other hand, not using them can also be used as evidence that they don’t actually need it. It’s a lose-lose situation and people like Robyn is exactly why it’s a problem. Thankfully, the orthopedic specialist appears to have seen through her ruse since she had to go fishing for a diagnosis elsewhere, but who knows how it’s impacted their perception of other patients.

I got my time line mixed up slightly when I was originally doing this. Pt 59, where she bitches about the snow, is actually best placed here.

February 2nd again. In her notes, she tries to claim that she experiences panic attacks when faced with slippery floors. She's also complained in the past about the hazards of walking around outdoors, whether because of mud or because people are parked in the wrong place. But instead of getting a ride or taking the bus to work, so as to avoid the risk of slipping in the snow, she walks there with the same stupid grin. While complaining about the danger of the snow. Doesn't even bother waiting for her chair. If it's that necessary to prevent dislocations and if slippery floors give her panic attacks, how the hell can she walk to work in the snow with no visible sign of distress whatsoever?

In this situation it's unlikely. Or at least that wouldn't be the reason for that specific visit. She attempted to reference both epilepsy and EDS in the comments, but focused entirely on EDS by the end of them. If she was faking seizures for that visit, she'd make a bigger deal about the epilepsy and wouldn't drop it halfway through on the one post. Plus she needed targeted proof of comorbid conditions to bolster her EDS claims. I don't know about any other visits around that time frame though, those could be connected to it like you say.

No worries. Her use of so many different accounts, including multiple accounts at the same time, makes sorting out the timeline of events a pain in the ass. It's no wonder people get confused and I wound up getting confused in some areas too. For example, her wording in the recent parts suggested that the upcoming appointment was the orthopedic specialist appointment and that she already had the bloodwork done on Jan 26 2015. Turns out the upcoming appointment is for the bloodwork. The orthopedic specialist appointment date is unclear - I'm not sure if it was ever actually discussed directly.

Pt 70. February 4 2015. Day before her appointment. Her wheelchair has arrived, she acts surprised and claims it arrived sooner than she expected. I guarantee you she dropped money for priority mail. The appointment she’s been gearing up for is the blood work appointment, the one with the orthopedic specialist comes later. Makes some comment about how it's bigger than she is. Kind of a useless thing to get impressed by… wheels tend to be big.

Pt 71. Same day. She takes the chair out for a test drive, realizes that it’s more hassle than she anticipated. Much like the super necessary knee braces she stopped using shortly after purchasing. What, did she think being a wheelchair user was going to be easy? Obvious prop is obvious. When the larger props are too much of a hassle and it outweighs the benefits, she moves on to smaller props that are easier to manage like the finger splints.

Pt 73. February 9 2015, youdontlookthatdisabled account. Talks about pursuing a diagnosis for EDS on it, but the account is primarily about her burn saga. Which she literally calls her burn saga. Note the increased like count as well as using old photos that make her look more sick than she actually is. Other interesting things include the fact that her number of reported dislocations has changed (she’s now emphasizing a much lower number of “major” dislocations instead of the 100s), the claim of being a 9/9 on the Beighton scale (yet not using any of this as proof of her hypermobility in pt 14 >>199521 ), and that people have been calling her a liar.

Pt 74. Same day. Talks about how she’s been ill since 13, and how she made the account to document her journey and bitch about her friends not taking her seriously. Something to note: now that she has jumped accounts and she is spamming hashtags, the number of likes on the posts have gone up dramatically. Before, she was only getting a handful. These two posts have over 40. Here she claims that she moved accounts because people in real life were doubting her. Good for them, honestly. I hope they were able to get away from her. Gives advice to a new commenter about how to get financial assistance with a comment about PIP being easier to obtain than disability (probably because she knows her claims wouldn’t stand up under scrutiny), and how it’s easier to access than in the US. I guess as a malingerer, she'd certainly know wouldn't she? After this point, the account focuses on her burn saga, which she was posting at the same time as another medical crisis. So milking attention from two entirely different crises at the same time. She abandons this account after the burn saga concludes.

For pt 75, I’m going to do something a little different. Instead of reposting the images from the burn saga, I’m going to link to the previous relevant posts and point out what aspect of them are relevant to the EDS saga. This is a trial run for formatting, so I can feel out how to handle references to the Appy Saga. The relevant areas are primarily surrounding her claims of poor healing and the attention seeking behavior that lines up with MBI. Because of the level of detail, I'll wait a bit before moving on to analyzing the appy saga so people can discuss it first.

>TL;DR version: Robyn posts information that proves she did not start as an MBI case, but rather a real life Munchausen case that escalated to the internet the longer she was on Instagram. This is rare for MBI. She jumps from diagnosis to diagnosis in her tags, ignoring key symptoms that would have been relevant, only to add them again in a later saga. The burn saga was a repost with notable behavior differences between the original posting and the new account, giving us a unique glimpse into the insanity of her escalations.


Interesting thing to note: the start date of the chemical burn saga is a couple days before the intro post on the hypermobilegeek account, where we started the EDS saga. The chemical burn saga starts on June 26 2014 ( >>201905 ). The EDS saga starts on June 29 2014 ( >>199468 ). She had been cataloging a dated timeline of photos for the burn saga even before escalating into the Munchie Queen we all know well, suggesting that her MBI attention seeking behavior dates back further than any of us anticipated.

• In part 4 of the burn saga ( >>202129 ), she starts tagging POTS. This supports the theory that the medical crisis in pt 68 ( >>239297 ) was an attempt to “confirm” a comorbid disorder that supports an EDS diagnosis. She also avoids tagging a large number of the conditions she’s claiming, focusing instead on POTS, chronic migraines and colitis.

• In later posts such as parts 8 and 9 of the burn saga ( >>202550 ), she starts tagging fibromyalgia, migraine and tachycardia. EDS isn’t mentioned in the tags at all. This despite the fact that EDS would actually be relevant because of the impact on healing, a claim she has made before in pt 27 ( >>199846 ).

• In part 13 of the burn saga ( >>203416 ), the anon helpfully shows us the two accounts side by side. You can see how the wording is very different between the two, suggesting that the description for the burn saga was written long after the incident. It’s even more obvious in part 14 ( >>203748 ). She didn’t get enough attention the first time around when she was posting about it and revised her game, instead creating her own sagas. Considering the descriptions would have been written /after/ she started claiming poor wound healing due to EDS, I wonder why she left that detail off so frequently. This would have been an excellent time to make use of it. She eventually figures that out when she starts going on about it in the Appy saga a few months later.

• In part 15 of the burn saga ( >>203765 ), she hints at poor wound healing due to EDS but doesn’t state it directly. In actuality, as the anon stated, that is definitely self-inflicted. I have dermatillomania and have dealt with burns, that’s exactly how it looks.

• The only reasons she ever had to see a specialist was because it was a chemical burn and it was on her dominant hand. That’s it. Like people pointed out during the burn saga, she had a superficial burn that in any other situation could have been treated at home. Many first aid sites will tell you this, and that certain burns have to be seen because of their location, the cause of the burn, or the size. So the munchie queen made sure to choose a method that had to be seen by a professional and by default would have been seen as significant. This is important because it means my original assessment of her starting as a somewhat “sane” Spoonie Warrior Luls and escalating to MBI was wrong. She’s been a Munchie for years and it started offline. She’s one of those rare instances where a Munchausen case starts offline and then escalates online in social media, instead of being isolated to social media and support groups. Typically in MBI the behavior is fairly isolated to the internet and their stomping grounds of choice. Then they may escalate and move offline. Robyn, in contrast, started offline and moved to specific support groups online for who knows what reason. This is one of the few things about her case that does not fit the typical MBI profile.

• Personal nitpick: It drives me nuts how often she posts “food porn” with a thumbs up sign showing off her bandage, with the burned hand so close in proximity to greasy, goopy food that would dirty the bandage. Including food that is supposed to be eaten by hand. For someone proclaiming she ~just wants it to heal~, that’s a shit way to do it. Of course shit will get infected if you stuff your hand in your greasy takeout all the time. It has nothing to do with poor wound healing and everything to do with how she handles it.

I really want to know if Robyn paid to see a private rheumatologist to get an EDS diagnosis. I cannot believe she barefaced lied about her small ears. To then post about it on IG is weird. She's not very bright. Aren't munchies meant to be better at hiding their lies?

No. 240927

>>240908
I'm not sure if she paid or not. But the way things were worded, it sounds like she may have benefited from a major problem that a lot of specialists face - seeing the disease they specialize in every possibility.

It's one of the things that anyone looking to specialize in a medical field has to check on a regular basis, especially if they're specializing in a specific collection of diseases. It's kind of like those people that see the Virgin Mary in peeling paint or on toast. They see a collection of symptoms that correlate with the disease of their specialty and zero in on that while ignoring other possibilities. This is both a pro and a con. On the one hand, it means that they're more likely to pick up on the subtle things that other doctors will miss for that condition, making it easier for genuine cases to get diagnosed if they manage to get to the office. On the other hand, it means that they can get fooled by munchies that tailor their cases to suit a particular profile.

Though we don't know if Robyn is really telling the truth about the professional's reaction. Like with the epilepsy saga, it may have started as a tentative diagnosis and she rolled with it online. So said professional could very well be keeping that tendency in check, but she's managed to twist it for asspats online yet again. With her tendency to lie it's impossible to call at this point.

I think it was an NHS referral to the rheumatologist but I'm not sure about the EDS specialist she was seeing in London. That one seemed like it could have been a Private consultation. Although I'm not sure whether she could afford to go private what with all the money she spends on braces, ring splints and junk food.

No. 240940

>>240935
The ring splints she has are the cheap plastic ones. The whole budget munchie thing. She can get a pack of 5 for ~£50. The silver variety, which a lot of people with EDS invest in because of the durability, being better fitting and looking less tacky, cost significantly more for just one splint. Considering she would only need them for photos and not daily use (the latter of which runs the risk of losing them if they fall off), a full set can last her a long time for a fraction of the cost.

http://www.silverringsplint.com/our-splints/siris-swan-neck-splint/

And that's not even going into her talking about seeing an occupational therapist to get fitted, so they may have been funded by the NHS anyway if she talked them into it around the same time as the purple splint. They're more likely to pay for the plastic ones than the silver variety.

Epilepsy Saga Part 50: December 13, 2014.
Success! Robyn receives an appointment summary letter from her neuro consult regarding a possible epilepsy diagnosis. The letter indicates the fervor with which she insisted on some form of treatment, typical of munchies:
>she was very keen for something to be done
>I have therefore given her a prescription
Treatment = totez lejit illnus!
Of course, she interprets this letter to be as good as a definitive diagnosis:
>It feels good to have a diagnosis.
The problem with this is that the consultant has only subjective (patient-and-doormat-provided) information. The alleged febrile seizures she references from infancy have not caused any cerebral pathology whatsoever, as is revealed later via her clinical workup (scans, etc.), but it is the consultation itself that matters most to Munchies. If you see a specialist about a given illness, BOOM! You can prove you went, and then claim you were diagnosed. For MBI, of course, you can just outright claim "I saw a specialist! I have [insert sought-after diagnosis here!]. I suspect that she did this with EDS, as have a litany of other IG accounts who have jumped on the ~*en vogue*~ EDS III bandwagon, posting merely that "genetic testing proved I really do have EDS!" We never see receipts from that alleged diagnosis and we all know damn well, if Robyn had that shit in writing, she would have spammed pics ad nauseum all over her social media accounts.

I'm sorry to disappoint, but the EDS saga will not be returning. Kadee's death made me realize some things and I'm not sure I want to be here. It's been a rough winter for me and I've been struggling with some anger issues, and I feel like focusing on the EDS saga is not the best use of my time. Its a major time sink.

Oh anon, I am sorry but do you know how many MBI's fake their online persona's death in an attempt to escape scrutiny? I don't buy it. She is such a drama queen and I'd bet with high probability this is just another attention grab move. If you feel like not finishing the EDS Saga and not post anymore that is your prerogative and I respect that but please do keep in mind that Kadee is a huge liar and faker and has nearly "died" countless times. Faking death is pretty common in MBI land unfortunately. They kill off their character and then move on to a new identity. If you are leaving, though, I hope you have a good life, too.(read the thread)

We have a few medications in common, and I cannot believe that she would intentionally do that to herself. What an infuriating, resource-leeching butthole.

Robyn, if you're reading this, and I believe you are, add magnesium to your pill horde. You're at serious risk of actual seizures and cardiac arrest, and no, there's no way to orchestrate or plan for that, once you're gone you're gone. I had to be revived twice and I'm still trying to learn what parts of my brain got all retardeded, I can't use a smartphone or write by hand, and I had to relearn simple tasks such as fucking swallowing. If, by some freak miracle, you had this random event occur while around a defibulator and someone who knows how to use it, that means no more social media, no more attention, no more #spoonielife, no more access to pills and doctors who don't know what you're doing. Believe you me, they will see right through it and at the first sign of intentional medical self-harm, they will force you into getting clean from pain pills and probably have you committed for having obviously caused yourself to go through such an idiot endeavor. The chances your ridiculous malingering compell you to take are not in your favor.

Jesus, watch her walk around with a defib now. ~*cardiac patient medical bracelets y'all*~

Reading through this thread there are a few things about the nhs / EDS that have been somewhat miss understood.


The number of points given on a Brighton score simply measures how many joints may hyper extend. 9/9 with a 5° over extension is not more serious than a 6/9 with 25°.

Secondly, most of those points are made from useless limbs, you get extra points for being able to touch thumb with atm, which some normies can do. Same with having your finger go back 45°. That'd also for both hands, that's 4 points of the bat. The Brighton sorting isn't a severity score, actually it's just a thing to see if someone is worth testing. If someone is boasting this number they are an idiot.

A lot of people are hypermobile without the syndrome. The syndrome only occurs if you have pain with it. Just cause someone is flexy doesn't mean they're ill.

Hypermobile syndrome is the same as EDS3.

Manual wheel chairs are not given to those with EDS patience who have chronic dislocations, but electric wheel chairs are only given to those who are fully paralyzed or are not part time users. Most EDS patients are part time chair users. The nhs refers you to your local council who refers you too an occupational therapist who puts you on the council's list. EDS because they are part time are offered scooters and will be put on that list.

Genealogists don't work with EDS patients unless you show signs of the deadlier types. Most EDS patients will have been dx'd by a rheumatologist. EDS3/hms is not something you can actually test for via skin or blood.

Will answer nhs / EDS questions to help clarify as to why this woman is mental. Hope this is insightful to her madness.

As a wheelchair user,
I was provided a manual wheelchair by the NHS, provideded through my occupational therapists, I was told that it'd take 12 weeks for the wheelchair to arrive, they measured me up there and then in the office and put in the order in front of me.

I was then later told by the Occupational Therapy dept, that if I wanted an electric wheelchair, since I can't push myself without my shoulders dislocating, (I'm and EDS sufferer) I'd have to wait for 3 years to get the wheelchair through the social services, providing I met their strict criteria.

it was then, and only then, my parents took the decision of buying an electric wheelchair, second hand, for the time being, because I felt degraded being pushed around, with my father being my registered full time carer, it was his decision to get me an electric wheelchair.

This girl actually makes me feel sick to my stomach.


No. 280945

You're partially wrong there, my occupational therapist ordered a wheelchair as soon as she saw my hips when I was walking, every step I take they come in and out of their sockets and my crutches weren't helping, they were actually doing more long term damage to my shoulders.

They won't provide you with an electric wheelchair unless you meet the strict criteria and even if you do get onto said waiting list, it's a 3 year wait.

Yo my apologies for necroing this, but I didn't see anyone in the replies call this particular shit out. Btw fantastic job on the chronicles, Saga anons!

In this post she says a few things that made me giggle.
>1) I've not been diagnosed witg EDS but trying to get a diagnosis
(Sorry, how many fucking times has she said definitively or acted like she for sure has EDS?)
>2) I've had 8 grand mal and 8 partial since 2009
(Up until now she's never mentioned "grand mal" or "partial" just that she'd had 9 (?) seizures since 2009, now it's 16 and she can differentiate the types magically?)
>3) 3 seizures recently - one in front of dad, one in front of doormat, and the last one (????) after which she went to hospital
(But this story has changed heaps of times, she said before that the first seizure was at dinner with her dad and doormat iirc, and how would she know she had a third if she had no witness? She hasn't even been confirmed for seizures yet so wtf)

Loling at the tool in her comments too. In their first comment they say "had my first seizure in September!" then two comments later "I had my first seizure in February then didn't have no more until September"

Are all these people as fucking spoonie and ridiculous as each other??

I actually found an old account that hasn't been posted here and she hadn't purged yet, mostly it's full of cringe Sherlock roleplays and pictures of her cats, but it does showcase a beautiful time when all she had to complain about was her microtia (no mention of literally any other health problems) - a far cry from the Robyn we came to know. I almost feel sorry for her, it seems that not long after she realised that medical shit could get her attention - re: her appearance in a magazine for her microtia circa 2013, she wanted to reclaim that attention. Perhaps hoping to get more features in magazines or newspapers, if only she was super speshul and spoonie enough.

Anyway, here's the cringey tumblr.
