Over-The-Top Spoonies/Munchausen By Internet Attention Whores General #4
Previous Thread: >>>/snow/237479
Discuss people who feign or exaggerate chronic illnesses and medical crises for attention and asspats online. Previous topic focused primarily on Instagram accounts, but posts from blogs and other social media sites are admissible.
Some of the more notable cows from the previous threads:
LifeUndiagnosedd, aka Hypermobilegeek on IG (and a shit ton more accounts). Robyn Brown is the milkiest munchiechan we've ever seen ("Kadeelyn on steroids" as another anon put it) and has her own threads now (original: >>197138

What Is A "Spoonie"?
People who identify as 'Spoonies' are referencing 'The Spoon Theory,' written by a woman with lupus to explain the chronic illness experience to a healthy friend who asked her what it really feels like to live with her medical problems.https://butyoudontlooksick.com/articles/written-by-christine/the-spoon-theory/
The 'Spoonie' Community is, in general, a legitimate supportive network for people dealing with chronic illness. In recent years, however, it has become polluted with SJW types and has attracted a new breed of attention-seeking catfish: people who lie about, fake having, and/or exaggerate existing medical problems and crises for no benefit other than to garner attention.
What Is Munchausen By Internet (MBI)?
From Dr. Marc Feldman, an expert in factitious disorders including Munchausen Syndrome, 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. 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."

Was waiting for someone else to make a new thread, but it's been three days and I obtained update screenshots concerning Eli, and couldn't wait any longer.
So far, seems he has a new kitten (What happened to all those different dogs he claimed to have?)
File: 1493412611704.jpg (29.99 KB, 360x640, 18197957_651548051716834_20058…)
Also, surgery? Seems he's keeping up with the bullshit of surgery and whatnot on his Facebook, but never mentions it on his Instagram. Seems fishy, honestly.
File: 1493412713129.jpg (27.02 KB, 360x640, 18191573_651704421701197_17327…)
An "update" on his "surgery".
Looks too clean, what the hell is that on his chest too?
Plus, from what I know of hospitals, at least in the UK, is that they have lights on at all times, even during the day. The lighting in his photo is off if he was in hospital, since it's a natural light, not an artificial one. He could very easily be at home pretending again, like the old days.
the thing on his shoulder is called tegaderm, but you can get that in every drug store. what is he claiming the surgery is about?
what is weirder to me is the oxygen tube. why would he need oxygen tube? that's only for people with heart or lung conditions, not regularely after usualy surgeries. And… every kind of piercings as well as ear rings are removed before a surgery. no matter what kind of surgery it is. He is flat out lying.
It's ridiculous. Just imagine how long it took him to prepare that shit at home and then making that facial expression for a picture. i wonder how many similar looking selfies he has on his phone right now.
I had day surgery at the alleged hospital to remove an ovarian growth and was made to take out every last piercing including facial ones before I arrived at the hospital to save time before surgery. The last thing on my mind was getting to put them back in as soon as I woke up.
The metal can cause interference with surgical equipment such as electrical burns from the equipment used to cauterize wounds.
Sage for blogging
My bf had an oxygen tube after a non dramatic op on his throat for around 5 hours after surgery (I'm in the UK). He had to take his piercings out and I doubt it he'd been in so much pain as on this munchies face he wouldn't be arsed to locate where the jewellery was, let alone put it back in. Also, the bf was on morphine drip for a while and zonked off his tits for half a day. He wouldn't have been able to take a selfie (if phone cameras had existed then). I say bullshit.
Sage for another kinda personal blog, but further evidence of lies.
He's claimed to have heart surgery in the past so the oxygen tube may be to do with that. Then again there were those old screenshots of him wearing a breathing tube and it being visibly taped to his arm in the photo, so it's proven he at least owns and has misused one before.
However, yeah, the piercings give him away. Might explain why he cropped it out in his Instagram post regarding it. That or he's just cropping the identifiable part of his face out as usual,
What is his IG?
Also, his mother and his aunt are both in his friend list on Facebook. Do they comment under those posts? How would be be able to post that stuff if it was fake without them getting on to it?
You can have settings on Facebook that make your posts visible to all but the people you decide can't see it.
Although it's evident his mother is in on it in some way, judging from the fact she insisted it was just his account getting hacked, and her statement to the newspapers that covered the story two months ago.
He has two Instagrams, one is private and inactive, seemingly (thepunkinthemonk), and the other is folie_a_you

Does anyone follow this chick? I just found her today but holy hell is she obsessed with medical paraphernalia. The caption says she had to take this shit before takeoff so my question is why?? Why on a fucking plane. And why are you taking a photo of it and possibly blocking the narrow plane aisle. If you take away all the EDS WARRIOR bullshit items it'd look like the drug addict sampler platter
How is she even allowed all that shit on a plane? Did they just let her take it on as hand luggage?
Did she even say what it was?
I thought it could possibly be self harm scars or scratches or something. But now that you point it out, it looks less like that and more like his cat or dog has accidentally got in the frame. I know he got a new kitten, and they crawl about everywhere. Probably his kitten.>>300616
The lighting is absolutely a dead giveaway.
And… do you usually wake up naked after a surgery? Surely he would have some sort of gown on?
I think the black stuff might be a tattoo? He has that many, it's a possibility. Although it could also be the new kitten, it is the right colour for it.
It's true though, the lighting and the lack of gown are a giveaway that it's a bunch of bullshit. Everyone I've ever visited in a public hospital, unless brought clothes by their families, are in gowns of some sorts. He certainly wouldn't be topless after an operation, anyway.

Used to be frequent ER flyer. Bitches about getting really bad Tn flares, but refuses to avoid triggers. And it seems like she has no clue how triage in an ER works: Chronic nerve pain is no emergency, so of course you can wait several hours! Especially when you're able to play with your phone and take pictures of other people with it while having unreal nerve pain.
She has no problem with publishing photos or full names of doctors, nurses, friends or other people on social media in order to defame them. Sometimes people even ask her to take certain photos down, because of this reason. Especially when they show the name(here her oh-so-bitchy doctor) of somebody.
File: 1493471424086.png (472.88 KB, 800x1280, Screenshot_20170429-090634.png)
She actually thinks she should be able to tell her doctors what to give her.
Or sooner. And usually quality of life is low in terms of getting out and about, especially if you enjoy sports. Like lacrosse. Or karate.
With all of his supposed conditions I'm not saying that it's impossible for him to be alive, i'm just saying i rather fucking doubt he'd be such a beacon of shining hope and love etc. etc.
And just…ugh. Everything about him pisses me off.
In mild cases, they can have a near to normal life expectancy. Though, with this kid, everything is ~super extreme seriousness~. He posted on his blog (now deleted, a shame, it was a great source of milk) that they'd tried every antibiotic possible for his recurrent infections and he was now resistant to them all.
It's funny when you think that, having admitted himself his life expectancy is 20ish, he had a "heart transplant".
They don't give transplants to people that will die anyway in less than three years.

Apparently she's on Adriamycin and has been for 23 weeks. A chemo drug which causes near total hair loss…
Lol guessing youre a similar sceptic who has had almost identical convos with this particular cow
'Im so sick omg dying #beatcancer #dissociativeidentitydisorder #schizophrenia #beatana' whilst simultaneously asking for money to go to college and being super sketchy and evasive about any and all details pertaining to her 'cancer' and treatment
File: 1493523367118.png (54.59 KB, 600x570, joke.png)
ugh whatever. she actually had cancer though. im pretty certain anons post was sarcasm.
Yeah, she actually had cancer and the only reason she looked "well enough" to model was a shitload of makeup to make her look less like a chemo corpse and she had no hair. This chick is claiming she's having chemo, still has hair which is evidently growing quickly, conveniently "forgets" some of the drugs she's on and even claimed she's on a 3 drug combination when the treatment for Ewings sarcoma is a 5 drug combo. >>301256
LOL no doctor would ever do that. Do you have caps of her saying this?
File: 1493644237829.png (182.91 KB, 750x951, IMG_0515.PNG)
Because this reply doesn't make you look crazy at all… also why would she email her doctor before she's even seen the neurologist? Couldn't she just tell the neurologist?
she seems to see someone at the pain clinic, so I don't think her GP or her neurologist are even allowed to give her stronger stuff for a weekend? And as far as I can tell it's kinda odd, that she always end up at the ER. Guess 2 weeks ago she went to the ER, because one of her roommates stole her painmeds.
And she was able to apply make-up and do her hair without having to cancel the trip. She often writes that this triggers
her TN, epecially when people critize her behaviour

"I'm sooper sick, nobody is sicker than me!" Also amazing how the DID has taken forefront and the cancer has conveniently vanished… She's also claiming that no inpatient facility will take her because she's "too complicated." That's not how it works, if she was that sick she would be sectioned, end of.

Also what is this white people bullshit? "you don't need fancy oils or fragrances, they don't do anything for you." Has she looked in mirror lately, because if anyone needs to moisturise their hair and put some argan oil on it, it's her. Not everyone has basic white girl hair. Sage because I'm salty as fuck/blogpost
Why would you take propanolol the beta blocker for temporary pain? At most it'll be for migraines, but really it's a heart medication?
Like wtf? Also outer ear infections don't even need antibiotics they go on their own??? Why's she such a massive baby? It's people like her why we're all gonna die from mrsa.
A year ago> I have hypermobile syndrome
Now>I have vascular eds
But she's Dutch so "its different over there!" Which is basically her excuse for all the blatantly falsified shit she tries to pass off as the truth. Like the time she tried to pass of being sectioned in Holland whilst studying in the UK. >>303241
Yeah I've done varying inpatient stays and I don't remember one time staff treats were stared. We didn't even have glasses, they were all plastic tumblers…

"I'm sectioned but living abroad!" Yeah right.
wtf… that makes zero sense
nowhere does a foreign exchange for goddamn sectioning exist
She's not in a hospital or unit or anything I don't believe. She never said she was on Any of her recent posts. So please find some better milk! If she was a cow she'd be posting constantly about her being in hospital. And she's not.
Can we dig up more milk on eli instead. He's more interesting.
Really? Can you not find anything recent rather than something over a year ago?
We want to see recent milk.
Tumblr is shit anyway.
Doesn't mean she was tipped, maybe she just couldn't be bothered with tumblr.
I've had tumblr accounts, Instagram account and I've deleted them because I couldn't be bothered with them or I wanted a fresh start…
No im not whiteknighting.
I just know from personal experience that she may have just been out with friends or something and one of them could be a nurse. Doesn't instantly imply she's in hospital… she didn't say she was in hospital.
Anyway I went to one of the weddings of a nurse who looked after my sister. And I ate CAKE there!
So if I made a post with a picture of a cake saying "having a piece of the nurses cake" does that mean I'm in hospital too?
I have a lot of friends and relatives who are doctors, nurses, social workers etc.
Anyway as a kid my CAMHS worker use to take me out to cafes for our appointments and she'd buy me cake and a drink.
They do stuff like that a lot. All my MH workers have done that over the years.
Jesus. Stop jumping to conclusions there's no milk there.
Find someone who's an actual cow. I'm tired of hearing about her on hear.
I want you to talk about actual cows.
Like Eli, endlessvoices… people like them.
You're just trying to come up with conclusions because you can't find any milk. It's obvious.
Not trying to whiteknight anyone I just hate it when these threads are filled with boring people.
where is she claiming to be sectioned?
I just merely have scanned her Instagram after seeing her posted on here
Yeah because someone calling someone out on jumping to conclusions is whiteknighting for sure.
You're misunderstood what whiteknighting is.
Her Instagram is private, she's pretending to be given things like cake by nurses indicating being in a facility, >>303388
Here she claims to be sectioned AND not in hospital which isn't possible, but please, keep defending this lying creep by desperately reaching for anecdotes about seeing a case manager (entirely different to a nurse) and butchering English to attempt to make a point.
Read the date on that. How long ago was that?
It's not recent therefore it's not relevant.
And butchering English?
Fuck off, you're getting on my tits now.
I followed these threads for ages.
The people writing in these threads lately seem to be digging up old milk not new milk. I'm here to post about cows, RECENT cows, I've seen her Instagram and tumblr. There's no recent milk there.
Seems like you all are running out of cows to post about
Too bad friendo, the thread isn't here to cater to you. Bring some new milk if you don't like what's here.
And yes butchering the language. The fuck around you reached for about having some nurses cake was terrible. Bitching about current content is more boring than old milk. Bring something new to the table or find something else to do.
Wow is this bizarre. Makes me think you might be. ..Hannah?
So my mom is the charge nurse in 3rd Ward (psych unit) at a hospital in the U.S. I was even briefly hospitalized there (my mom had to move units while i was housed there due to the potential for favoritism, favors, and conflict of interest).
Which brings me to my point. Now, I don't know about Europe, but in America, to sit and share staff cake would be a huge breach in professionalism, and potentially be seen as a break in code of conduct due it being seen as favoritism (did everyone in Hannah's unit get cream cake? Or was it just the sooper-special-sick princess)? Singling one patient out for asspats and favors is very untowards in appearance (is there an inappropriate relationship going on, etc.) and would never fly in a psych unit in the US, ever. I need to ask my mom, but i am confident such conduct would warrant disciplinary action.
Don't even get me started on the glass plate. Hell's bells it was thick plastic sporks for you on Third Ward when n I stayed there.
Oh, and stfo about who is, and who isn't worthy to be in this thread. Scout out a new cow who is more milky or GTFO……Hannah.
Yeah the writing style of >>303735
is super similar to Hannah's. Especially the bit about the wedding, it reads exactly like the replies to her self-sent asks.
In the UK Nurses would not be allowed to share food with patients, staff could buy food for all the patients to share as a treat, eg on holidays, but to give one patient food is a MASSIVE breach of professionalism like you say, and would warrant disciplinary action. The plate is also a fucking massive nope. We had catering plates on the ward I was on which were hard (nigh on impossible) to break and plastic cups. I mean the water didn't even run hotter than like 60c.. >>303735
Jog on, Hannah.
RE chemo and getting out and about;
My step mum was flying interstate every week (or second week?) to teach at uni after having a double mastectomy and lymph node removal and then chemo.
She'd have her chemo, wait the 3 days til the worst symptoms abated, fly up, work for 4 days, come back down etc
And now my sister, who has a terminal brain tumour, is going back to work part time (she can drive again for now- no seizures for 6 months) even though she's also having multiple courses of chemo- I think she has a full week on then 2 weeks off for the next 12 months? IDK exactly.
But she basically experiences the same thing as my step mum, a few days of feeling like shit followed by feeling ok.
OBV it's down to what type of chemo meds you're having too (my step mum's was IV, my sister's is in tablet form) and how frequently you're having it, but they act pretty aggressively when managing a glioblastoma multiforme in someone as young as my sister just to extend her time and they don't fuck around with grade 2/stage 2 breast cancer either (my step mum's).
I mean, lots of people work while undergoing chemo, lots of people just have a few off days and then go back to work, rinse and repeat.
So it is possible to have some nice photos taken on a good day.
Mind you, both of my family members experienced hair loss, so that does make this chick's cancer claims seem shady as fuck.

How can somene cry about being the victim of cyberbullying and act like this? Why are cows always telling people, that other people are just trying to get attention and that they are sick in their head?
When I first came across Nicole I thought she was genuine, but these days I just find myself wanting to bash my head on a wall every time I read her posts.
For example in this post if you have severe nausea and have been having for a long time you do not think oh not only do I need a massive main for lunch but soup too! I'm sorry no just no when you have had long term nausea for a good while you try easy stuff not eat masses in one go that's clearly going to end badly are you a freaking tardhttps://www.instagram.com/p/BTOcRqqDhmS/
Damn, your family are metal as fuck. Sorry about your sister fam.
Hannah is claiming she's on adriamycin IV, which is like the no1 hair-loss causing chemo drug, yet her hair is quite clearly not falling out. Plus treatment for Ewings Sarcoma uses a 5 drug combo and she only listed 3.

Well you can put it into place if you know what you're doing. Most people with EDS relocate joints themselves.
Planned appointments for joint relocations however are something I've never heard of. That makes zero sense.
ha, thanks, they're pretty determined.
Watching a brain tumour take my sister is pretty hard negl (and our mum died a few years ago from cancer too)
Fuck cancer, for real

Definitely a munchie. All those tubes hanging out her cleavage, and half of them don't connect to anything. Draws the eyes away from the shaved eyebrows I suppose
Her stoma as in an incision made to direct the flow of faeces and urine? She'd want tubes related to that hanging out of her shirt? Sounds legit, anon.

When people doubt her or try to help her, she either blocks them or deletes their comments. And when followers point this out she gets all defensive, because she clearly is the victim here sarcasm off
Sadly there are still enough people who believe her lies and praise her for her braveness.
According to her the sinusitis only lasts some hours or a day, but how can a sinusitis frontalis only hurt for such a short time? Something is clearly wrong with her researching technique
I'm thinking cluster headaches may be next. I've noticed a lot of people suddenly have it, but don't take anything for it because it's not "that bad".
If you say cluster headaches are not that bad you clearly don't have cluster headaches lmfao
She's clearly still very eating disordered and she could be lying but she claims she has classical EDS which a blood test cnfirmed.
I reckon her problems are 98% due to her eating disorder.

He used to claim he had lennox gastaut syndrome, which is severe epilepsy you're stuck with forever, or so he claimed.
There's that much red tape around that alone, can't have had a seizure within 12 months, has to be controllable through medication, among other things.

Yeah - when picking out which diagnosis you want on the internet you should probably not claim Lennox Gastaut Syndrome - the very rare and very severe type of epilepsy which is by definition not controlled through medication.
Just one of the many fake diagnoses that would make getting a driver's license impossible.

She's seen this and put it on IG, but if she's seen it, it means she's been lurking here and more than likely posting about people. I mean she's constantly side-posting about people on IG.

Nice manipulating/guilt tripping of other people for your actions, Lauren. "may as well doing it right" - stop claiming self-injurious intent to make other people feel guilty. Just call them out and be done with it. Manipulating will get you nowhere.
I wonder if she was the one who posted about rebuilding.gem on here despite Gemma actually being really unwell. Every time Gemma is feeling unstable you can guarantee Lauren will post a cryptic "thanks for triggering
me" post or say about how unstable she is (which is far more than whoever posted about it first, naturally.) Stop being toxic Lauren, and if you are going to be, at least don't deny you're a farmer.

Yeah but he accompanied the picture of the post with text saying he was told he wouldn't get one until he was fit enough to drive and is trying to make it seem like all the sudden he has improved so much (despite claiming to have several severe and irreversible conditions which make driving unsafe and impossible).
And I don't know the procedure there but it seems fishy that he would apply for a driving license when he knew it wouldn't be approved because he was too sick and then they would just send it to him and let him know when someone finally signed off on it (you would think that whoever it was would have to discuss it with him first and then sign off).

Not an entire munchie as its clear she does have some medical issues going on but she should be fun to discuss.
Claims to have 101 conditions going on at the same time, all causing different things, yet still manages to travel across the country mid crisis. Surely if you were that poorly you would delay holidays.
Also she pulls some horrible faces for a pretty girl, is super dramatic on instagram and during her last trip to Bali was taken home early due to medical problems to be rushed into ICU back in England, no evidence of that happening just some apparent plane drama.
Disclaimer- she obviously has some kind of medical problem that I don't deny but she's dramatic as fuck with it.
When posting new cows please provide screencaps of something milky.>>310056
For the most part, this. It's sad.
I'm always wondering how she is able to afford all the trips? Does the NHS cover all the trips to the hospital in a foreign country? And why did she even fly to Bali in the first place?
And why on earth did a doctor gave her an okay for Bali or all the other places she's been to the last year? And how can you have so much energy and be so sick at the same time?

Ugh, why the hell is POTS so trendy now? you have to go to a cardiologist/electrophysiologist first and make sure you have no deficiences or other explanations. Anemia and thyroid issue can mimic tachycardia seen in POTS. THEN, you need to have a tilt table test and only after that, are you actually diagnosed with POTS.
Also, most people can pinpoint exactly when they started getting sick and the cause, because POTS almost always stems from a viral or bacterial infection months prior to the onset of symptoms. Sometimes it's triggered
by puberty or pregnancy, but that kind usually goes away.
Sorry, just irks me because I have it and I've been living with it for almost a decade. And of course it's always the one accompanied by hypotension, it's never the hypertensive kind because I guess it's not cool enough or whatever.
Do these assholes even realize how truly RARE multiple personality disorder is?! Psychiatry is still debating whether or not this is a real thing. What utter nonsense.
And completely nitpicky of me, I know, but i hate when people reiterate the same expressions time and again like ~~ugh~~. Try something else to express your disdain ya dumb broad.
I called it multiple personality disorder paradoxicalperfection labled herself that, dumbass, and she added DID for good measure and spoonie points. Read the damn post next time before being so triggered
Also, I will stand behind the statement that the condition is very rare, and to quote Psychology Today (and yes I know it's not a scholerly publication), "Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is a diagnosis that is not without controversy. Experts in the fields of psychiatry and psychology publicly dispute whether or not the disorder even exists."
Bitch if you were a regular poster here you would know we took a survey and most posters here are 20-25.
I wouldn't say it's common, however, it isn't rare. From the articles I've read, it's about as common as schizophrenia or slightly more so.
It's also massively underdiagnosed.
Sorry cupcake. DID is a very real.
How exactly do you think that a person who can survive years of horrific sexual, physical, and mental abuse is a snowflake?
Tell you what cupcake, you go get raped & beaten for a decade & then get back to me if your not in a heap in the corner screaming jibberish(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
Survived that, didn't develop DID. Worst thing is the people who abused me, despite being reported to the police, repeatedly, are still out there.

Is this your 6 year old "alter" typing, "cupcake"? If you'd been so badly abused would you really be telling someone to "go get raped and beaten for a decade"?

>>313580>There has to be evidence that he is receiving treatment for a medical condition that has been fabricated.
I'm pretty sure whether he's committing fraud does not hinge on whether he's managed to trick medical professionals as well as those he's taken money from. The fact he's falsely claiming to have cancer is enough. Social media in the UK comes under the same kind of stipulations that any written publication does, hence people being arrested over tweets. Soliciting people's time and money under false pretences or by deception is totally illegal.
>And there has to be proof that he is receiving funding for said treatment under false pretenses.
He's from Scotland. We have free healthcare in the UK. No one has even claimed this is the type of fraud he committed. He defrauded a charity for kids similar to Make a Wish, it's nothing to do with his "treatment"

I get my news of the latest fashionable #spoonie illness with this one:https://www.instagram.com/ninajean/
I've known of her for years and she's always jumped on the bandwagon of whatever was THE illness to have at the time.
She's now become a full fledged spoonie with EDS, POS, chronic fatigue, hypermania, dysautomania, "cardiac problems" and a bunch of other mostly self diagnosed crap.
Her family are loaded yet she claims poverty. Had a gofuckme for a normal wheelchair then decided an electric one would give her extra spoonie points so did a gofuckme for that. She's made loads of them.
Spends all her benefits on make up and plastic crap. Recently went on holiday to the States and around Europe.
It's Mental Health Awareness week, so she's started dragging up old illnesses to appear relevant.
She has a blog where someone pulled her up on how she wastes her money and expects others to pay for her spoonie paraphernalia. Still, it's her money to waste: "What I spend my money on is my business and no one else’s. People who aren’t on benefits don’t have to put up with this money policing crap and neither should we".
Oh, and she does ballet.
>>313554>under a fake name
I was thinking about that bit, the fact he has the same name on his provisional drivers license makes me think it's not a fake name, rather he has legally changed it? Although he has fully changed it, and the provisional could be a fake.
I had a thought that his name was maybe changed because of something along the lines of witness protection, but then his whole family would've had their names changed, he'd have had to have moved, he wouldn't be allowed contact with his old friends, etc…
Still seems fishy

>>314497>The way his left trouser leg looks
uhm. isnt the prosthetic for the right leg?
at least it looks like a shoe for a right foot, or am I seeing that wrong?
I think they mean our left, not his left? Which would be his right. It does look like a right shoe.
They do have a point about it looking like a cup of sorts being wrapped in a support bandage though. And cups that would look like that certainly do exist
It also looks too short, if you compare it to where the support bandage is on his leg in the other picture.
And the only reason I can think that he'd have his leg amputated is to do with the "cancer in his knee", which means it would definitely be too short.
Not to mention this is only a recent thing? All his photos from a few weeks back on instagram, where you can see his legs, he's mainly wearing tight fitted jeans and it's obvious that he doesn't have a prosthetic limb?

Pint glasses like that are pretty easy to come by too.
On another note, I'm unsure whether he's actually legally changed his name from Elliott to Hunter or not, since the Electoral Roll still lists him as Elliott (and another listing for the same address with his deadname too…)

It's been pretty much proven he's lying about having a prosthetic, look how shit that fake scar is! Fucking dreadful
Especially since he just posted about choosing a silicone exterior for cosmetic appearances - why would you cover it in white if you wanted it to look more realistic. And while I am sure it exists, I haven't seen too many prosthetics without a visible ankle joint.
Additionally, it looks really short for a below the knee prosthetic. There doesn't appear to be enough room for a functional socket and the ankle/foot hardware. I believe an amputation at that height would actually be fairly difficult to deal with if only one leg was involved because it hard to accommodate for the space needed for the foot/ankle/socket hardware and not have the prosthetic longer than the other real leg.
I call baloney on this one.
That looks so fake it hurts.
The blood would have turned dark, it wouldn't all be the same color down the entire thing. You can clearly see it was a legit line painted up the leg and then they used a sponge or paper towel to dab the "blood". They used like liquid latex to build up the skin to look raised.
Found Eli's new twitter. Claims his last chemo treatment was on the 27th April, which contradicts his post on Tumblr saying he'd been in remission for 4 years.
Also he wouldn't have been allowed certain surgery if he was still having chemo treatments. Not to mention his doctors would have strictly advised against him getting tattoos.
It just never adds up with this boy.
Plus, if his post about being in remission on tumblr was true, I'd have expected him to make a huge song and dance about his cancer being back if it did come back.
UK fag, the provisional looks legitimate, and it's actually the new design which looks a bit different to the older ones. I'd have called it fake if I hadn't recently ordered a new provisional to take my driving test, but it looks exactly like mine; it could be an expensive and clever fake though because in a picture you can't see if there's a holograph or not.
What I think is more likely and explains his name on the electoral register is that he has legally changed his name - it's pretty easy and relatively inexpensive to do - but this scummy NEET hasn't bothered to re-register to vote since changing his name, meaning that he's not intending to vote on June 8th as you can't vote if you've changed your name and not re-registered.

So Eli posted this and whilst the calf does look weird, I'm not convinced it is weird enough to be a prosthetic leg? Looks more like a few support bandages on there. Or a good photoshop.
Not an expert on it, but I'd assume if he actually had a prosthetic leg, there would be some form of seam between it and the stump showing through his jeans.
I'm probably not going to be convinced until I see the lower leg with him wearing shorts, though.
Anyone else got any ideas on it though?
Looks like a biologically female's shapely calf with a sock under her jeans and pressing it against the seat to make it look bigger (more like a prosthetic leg).
I used to work with a bloke who had a prosthetic leg and he only ever wore baggy pants. He had loads of problems where the leg used to rub on his stump (ulcers, infected blisters) and anything tight around where the leg was would've be painful. Idk if the false leg was ill fitting and that's why he had all those problems, but if this Eli's was a false leg then wouldn't s/he want to complain about blisters etc. being a munchie and all that?
It still looks too low on his leg for me to believe it. I think that every below the knee prosthetic I have seen has come up to the knee, regardless of how much residual lower limb there is. I am not an expert, but I assume that it has something to do with ensuring that the socket fits properly. His only seems to come up to mid-calf, which I would assume would be a very hard fit. In the event that was somehow possible, I would guess an outer sleeve would be necessary to hold it in place, and that would likely go above the knee and I see no lines above his knee. His prosthetic pictures always seem to indicate that it has a straight/flat top, which isn't what I have seen for any prosthetic.
It looks more like he either has squeeze a boot or a bandage under his pants.
Also, for someone who has a history of having no problem showing off his "scars" (or at least the ones he stole from someone and photoshopped on himself or the ones he painted on himself), I find it odd that he would be trying to bring attention to his "amputation" but not showing an uncovered picture of it. Given his history with pictures and photoshop, if it was real he would have posted a picture of it.
thank you for this i had no idea.
makes perfect sense though. what a fucking car crash.
Eli is FtM, yes. Doesn't mean you should stop using the correct pronouns. I don't know whether he's actually taking T or not though.
Pretty sure the fact he has a deadname was mentioned in >>314657
HypermobileGuy is also FtM iirc.>>316858
Newfag, please stop namefagging.
yeahhh I work in an environment where I see a LOT of amputees, and none of them would ever wear skinny jeans cos it fucking rubs, especially if the prosthetic is new. you're given a list of things that are recommended and skinny jeans are not advised.
also as >>317073
pointed out, they wouldn't have a prosthetic by now anyway, an above the knee amputation would need at least 6 months to settle down in my experience, and then you've got to be fitted for your prosthetic, before which you'd be on crutches. amputation stays are normally 2- 3 weeks in hospital - did they post during that time? they're definitely just fucking lying lmao trying to fake an AMPUTATION is wild, one of my colleague's granddaughters died from what eli's claiming to have and it fucking sucked watching her lose her leg and still not make it.
Some of the photos show him with a real leg as early as 12 weeks ago, which further proves your point because if 5 months is too short, 3 months is even shorter.
Everything he posts always contradicts previous things he has posted. Drivers license? If you had Lennox Gastaut, that'd be a no. Terminal cancer that had also somehow been in remission for 4 years. Prosthetic leg but no real photos to prove it and his previous claims of illness would have made getting one impossible.
He needs to do better research on things, and get his story straight. Possibly also admit to the lying but that'll never happen.
Anon from >>317073
here. I learned more about prosthetics in 30 seconds via the nhs website than any research he's done!
Don't actually know why he "had his leg amputated", he's never specifically mentioned it being due to the osteosarcoma he also claimed to have. However speculating that is what he'd claim it'd be from since it's the only leg related thing he's ever claimed to have.
But yeah, he claimed the osteosarcoma was in his knee, so one would assume they would have amputated mid thigh if anywhere, not mid calf.
You can actually be fitted for a prosthetic as soon as the wound is healed and your surgeon gives the okay. I have know individuals who begin the initial fitting within six weeks. However given all of his other "illnesses", it is unlikely that he would be healthy enough for such a fast recovery. I have also heard that the NHS does have a shortage of people who can fit/make the prosthetics so there is a longer waiting list (I haven't heard of this being a problem in the US). Additionally, the first year of having a prosthetic can be tough as you have to learn to use it and getting the proper fit can be difficult initially due to the residual stump changing.
That being said, with no reasonable explanation for the amputation other than the cancer, it would be unlikely that he would have the kind of amputation he claims to have. His "amputation" looks really low and if they are going to have to resort to amputation to ensure the cancer is gone they aren't going leave so much residual limb, particularly when it wouldn't be super advantageous for that type of amputation.
Now if he wanted to get real special snowflake points and fake amputation, he should have gone with a rotationplasty!
Wonderful news, Eli has been charged with fraud for lying about his cancer to a charity!http://www.glasgowlive.co.uk/news/glasgow-news/teen-charged-fraud-after-misleading-13066991

It's kinda sad that munchies are allowed to interact with other people on social media, because in her case a long break from instagram and facebook would help a lot. She is so obsessed with everything health related and even when she is just posting stuff in groups(not related to any illnesses) her introduction includes all of her illnesses.

File: 1495461544567.png (694.34 KB, 934x600, 1324234321686.png)
Honestly I just want to know when the trial is to go along and attend, to see what bullshit excuses he tries to come up with, and to see first hand what his punishment will be.
The fraudster is biologically female and in the UK would get sent to a female prison if you haven't got a gender recognition certificate.http://www.equality-network.org/your-rights/gender-recognition/
Maybe this one's got one if that provisional license is real.
Considering how serious what he's done is, maybe not. Defrauding a charity is serious, and the distress he caused many people, including the family of the girl whose scar/injury he photoshopped onto himself.
He's certainly not remorseful about his actions, considering he kept lying about various illnesses even after the first report about him being investigated was made. Probably more sorry he got caught than anything else. A fine would just allow him to go back to doing it all over again under his "new name".
I'd love to see him get the maximum sentence, honestly. And his mum, for essentially being an accomplice in it.
Defrauding a charity is serious. I don't know all the details of the charges but it seems like he is mainly being charged with getting a $1000 guitar from the charity after claiming to have cancer. He may have taken other things, but ultimately in the grand scheme of criminals $1000 isn't a lot. He definitely hurt the family of the girl who's scar he took, but I don't think he targeted the family so I am not sure there would be much of a case their either.
Faking diseases online is a scummy thing to do, but I don't think its actually a crime (unless you do it to get people to send you stuff, which is why what he did with the charity is illegal).
If he ever admits to faking cancer, he will probably blame it on a mental illness (hasn't he already?).
The fact that being transgender would likely make putting him in jail more complicated and the low value of the things he stole, I would doubt he would get prison time.
