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.
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.[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."

Since we were on the topic of Eli in the previous thread…

The time this is posted is pretty suspect, considering the timing of whoever was spamming the end of the old thread. Seems likely it was Eli trying to cover his own tracks again.

Someone found a (Spanish or Italian) YouTube news clip about Eli Stewart, under it a great big defensive comment from (obviously) Eli himself with yet another version of events, this time saying he did have cancer and ALL his other illnesses. Saying he was cleared of all charges etc.

Then "someone" spammed the thread about 100 times or more in a row with just a "." until it locked due to over limit. Shame for him they don't vanish when they are locked. We just need more to load up on here about him now.

122/73 is a little high for a younger person at rest but it's not like "emergency intervention" high. Certainly not nearly high enough to be worried.

There is no such thing as 10/10 chronic pain (medfag/chronicpainfag here). Managed chronic pain can't be 10/10, you'd be constantly losing consciousness from it. There is such a thing as breakthrough pain but anyone whose condition has breakthrough phenomena (I don't know enough about EDS pain management to know whether it does or doesn't, but as far as I'm aware, breakthrough pain is typical only for malignancies) has a breakthrough pain plan with PRN pain meds that are designed to act fast and hit the spot (I have fentanyl lollipops that are just wonderful! Of course, I'm no use for a few hours afterwards but at least I'm not passing out from the pain).

10/10 pain, in the rare instances that it happens, does not look like you're leaning back all comfy. It looks like clenched teeth, face distorted in a grimace of pain, tears streaming, flushed, sternocleidomastoid protruding and tense. Super bullshit, never mind the part about having multiple types of EDS.

No. 345157

I am also a hyper pots patient. I would kill for readings like she has. My readings are that bad just from standing. I still manage to get through a day. My docs encourage me to walk, exercise, and keep moving. I avoid the ER at all costs, due to the cost!(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

No. 345159

kek. You MUST be right, I don't think she's reading it properly. Is she really that dumb? 93 bpm is ok. Her systolic/diastolic is a tiny bit high but it's not something that requires immediate medical attention.

Okay. If you are going to try to score pity points with a medical graphic of your super awful "EDS complication" at least make sure it's the right disorder. TN is one of the most painful nerve-related disorders and is actually called "the suicide disease" because up to 25% of sufferers commit suicide because of the intractable pain. Legit has nothing to do with EDS or TMJ. Learn to fucking read. Sage for rage and being a medfag

Let me put a possibly more sympathetic spin on this. Consider the attached image, from Nicole's groundme started by her mother Tina.

Mom is a self-described medical research junkie (meaning she reads shit about medicine, not an addiction to randomized controlled trials). Daughter is young and in an unstable place in life where we crave parental approval. So she does the one thing that's bound to both make mom happy and get her interested in her life again, over her brother: suddenly become a medical mystery. Now mom can live the kind of story that she normally only gets to read about: a honest to dogness medical mystery, a world famous doctor (a Dr Chopra, not sure if he is well known for EDS but I've never come across his name) playing the part of a real life Dr House, and a lot of expensive testing. All the while she can enjoy the spotlight as the heroic mother of the sick child. This is a wonderful Munchie twofer: MBI daughter enabled by mother with MSbP mother. How fabulous. I am already feeling sorry for the poor clinicians who will have to deal with them.

No. 345183

Just went through Nicole's bullshit with medfag eyes.

> claims she is on eight kinds of medications 'given to cancer sufferers', refers to them as medications to induce remission of IBS

No such medications exist.

> the only prescription medication she is taking, other than the eight unidentified cancer medications, is naltrexone

Nobody with long term chronic pain that reaches 10/10 with a weekly regularity is on just naltrexone, of all things…

> has a blood disorder out of the blue

Without mentioning what it actually is.

> shows her wrist, claiming it is dislocated when it is at an angle a dislocated wrist could not be bent into

Just, no.

I am trying to figure out if she's scamming her mother or if she's aware and joining in, but either way, they're reprehensible.

Nicole, there's nothing wrong with you. You're a young lady with depression and a mom who wants to be a character on House MD. No amount of expensive testing will change that, though I noticed the HMSA poster explaining how EDS injuries are super invisible lol.

No. 345188


She's on TPN. I hate to say this but the most plausible explanation is that she is using her line to suck out blood. TPN means she has a Hickman line or a port (probably a Hickman line). The Hickman is a large diameter line that goes straight to the superior vena cava, right next to the heart, so it's relatively easy to suck out enough blood to drop Hgb to 8.

I had a Hickman line for two years and when my blood counts first crashed due to what we later learned was aplastic anemia, doctors insisted on monitoring me closely, despite the fact that I was a medfag myself, because they had a patient a few months earlier who was literally sucking all the blood she could out of her central line. This is the sort of shit why Munchie bullshit like what she is pulling is so dangerous.

It's not unheard of actually …. nurses/doctors have questioned/called out @kelly.ronahan on doing something like that as well (especially bc she has a mental health/self harm history) and they cannot find a reason for her severe anemia/blood count drops every two weeks

No. 345211


It's not THAT uncommon. Years later when I went into gastroenterology, I saw a bunch of spoonies do it. We encountered this in a young female a few months ago. She had bone marrow biopsies and scans and genetics and a near infinite array of tests and nothing yielded. She lost blood almost as fast as we transfused it. Heaven knows how she managed to hide it when she was under 1:1 observation, as is now common for central line patients who present with unexplained anaemia and have a medical background (thanks Munchies!), but she was supposed to be transferred to a hematology specialist unit later that week. One day, a nurse accidentally tripped on her handbag, and its contents spilled out. She had all manners of syringes and heparin and stuff.

Ain't it great to be in a job where you're trying to help people, some of whom are actively trying to deceive you?

Sage for war story.

No. 345215


Oh, she's one of my faves. Especially as once her blood disorder got her nowhere (she is getting transfusions all the time but no further treatment attention, and they are trying to phase her off those), she was suddenly diagnosed with MS. And now it's all about that and not about the mysterious blood disorder that once ran her life maybe she realized she's starting to have more and more severe transfusion reactions, which is why she ended up on palliative care? How curious.

(Yes, radiologically definite MS can be faked. No, this isn't a Munchie advice page.)

No. 345219


Do you know why she has the access line in in the first place? (Not baiting, just asking cos I thought she was genuine!)

No. 345220


My understanding is that she needs frequent blood transfusions and frequent draws to check her labs. Regardless of the cause, a port reduces nursing time, makes tampering more difficult, is more hygienic, better for a young and athletic patient and avoids having to scar the veins in the antecubital by repeated needle sticks.

No. 345229

Yeah, I think she's doing it to herself because there's no way she has all this medical monitoring and is in the hospital every 2-3 days and NO ONE can figure out her ~blood disorder~

She could be genuine but (as an RNfag) I have questions at times (and so do her Dr's obviously however she cries neglect when that occurs, like now they are talking about a hysterectomy since her uterus may be responsible for the blood issues and MS after one head MRI and none of the above has been questioned before?)sage for bloggishness

No. 345236


At the very least it's odd. There are basically no diseases where blood mysteriously disappears without a trace except of course exsanguination aka sucking it out of the body. Aplastic anemia shows in the bone marrow, while autoimmune anemias would leave some telltale signs in blood chemistry. There is no good explanation for what's going on with her other than factitious or induced illness. Especially as it is clear from her history (she had anorexia and self harmed) that she's not afraid to hurt herself.

No. 345238


The MRI is frankly at best inconclusive. Plenty of healthy people have FLAIR spots. I have them, and I don't have MS. I think her doctors are in a shitty situation, needing to reduce the reliance of someone who is basically almost definitely inducing illness on the blood reserves, and if for whatever reason a hysterectomy gets her there, they're willing to give her that.

No. 345239

That makes sense. I wonder if she's taking something to make her ill. Unless she's cutting? but then that would be super obvious because she'd always have fresh cuts.

No. 345241

TN sufferer here. There is no proof that the 25% is true and that's why most people tend to ignore the number. There are plenty of posts out there that explain why the number can't be true.
And it's kinda common to come across TMJ ppl in the support groups who try to explain that they also have TN, but they only need Advil for the pain.

You definitely can - it's seen quite often in psychiatric inpatients with severe self harm issues. Known a few to have to get transfusions due to their self harm.

However, blood letting would be a more common cause, especially if she has a line. Then it'd just be too easy.

I'm gonna be honest, as a medfag I am extremely worried about her. Here's a young woman with a history of mental illness and self harm getting doctors to give her invasive and long term damaging treatment. A hysterectomy is life changing, and not generally for the better. Multiple blood transfusions increase the risk of transfusion reactions etc. It is beyond me why she is as successful at what she's doing as she is, though it might be owing to her affable and genuinely kind personality. Of all the Munchies, she's the one I resent least and whom I see as a genuinely unwell person (just a different illness).

Also telling: a BMT is not being considered despite there being the probability of a perfect match. BMTs are not just expensive they're also very risky. A person with an aplastic anemia this severe should benefit from it, and at least they'd be searching for a match. I think that's fairly damning.

Oh fucking boy, here we go!

May I present Morgan McCastor, of the Syracuse, NY area. She apparently suffers from 15 different illnesses, and is going to be features in a documentary as she begins palliative care! She's even covered in loads of local news sources.


Sadly, Morgan is full of shit, a fact that the hospice workers have caught onto quite quickly. Just about all of her sooper serious 15 illnesses were pegged as behavioral health issues, prompting a full on meltdown from Morgan.

Of course, Morgan chooses to interpret this as being SO SO SICK that even HOSPICE can't save her!

(The fact is she's a malingering munchie who's definitely a drug-seeker. The Syracuse area is fucking sky-high with the opiate epidemic, to the point where the news channels usually every other week do a news segment on the opiate crisis.)

Not necessary. Some hospices operate a semi-inpatient palliative care program, which Munchiechan presents as 'omg hospice I'm dying!'. In all likelihood this is either a hospice–run palliative care program or just a palliative care program and she doesn't know the fucking difference.

Nicole's beauty pageant thing seems really strange to me. She's not even remotely pretty. Her posture demonstrates her total lack of self-confidence. She's overweight, her hair is always a major disaster, and her smiles are exceedingly dopey. She looks like she's on the spectrum in every photo I've seen of her. How hasn't she realized that she's just pity-winning these things?

No. 345811

I agree with you. It's also juvenile and obviously for attention.

No. 345833

I don't understand why that post would be considered milky. She's admitting her illnesses are psychosomatic. She's trying to accept the diagnosis and understand it rather than insist on more invasive tests as a lot of the other spoonies in these threads would.

Surely it's good that she's trying to learn about her diagnosis and is actively looking for things which will help her. By reading about her condition, she might find something which helps her. Then she would spend less time in the doctor's office or emergency room.

Admittedly, the book gets very mixed reviews from patients with functional disorders, but if it helps Nicole recover then that's hardly a bad thing.

No. 345886


I just started looking at her account and find it really strange that she posts the sash in almost all of her pictures. Did a little digging and found that she applied for the pageant online and was accepted as a finalist and given a sash. I don't know Scotland so no idea how many people applied but if its a smaller area I would assume there are not a ton of adults looking to apply to online pageants. I am sure she submitted her sob story and they pageant picked her up if anything for a PR move (as she seemed to do several "news" stories about it). The sash she now parades around just says she was a finalist, which in this case pretty much just means she participated. The other pageant sash she was parading around was for some sort of online charity pageant in which she even said the titles are given on a "first come" basis. So she is parading herself around as an inspirational beauty queen when really she is mainly just sitting behind a computer screen (and yes it did at least once result in actually participating in a real event) and applying for things where she can tell her story so people can say she is so brave for pursuing these types of things.
I just don't understand why an adult is basically parading their participation ribbon around on so many photos that aren't related.

No. 345890


1. Self-promotion ("look I'm a beauty queen!")
2. She can be seen to be using the platform afforded to her to "raise awareness" of whatever issue she wants to talk about. Even though she's only posting to her followers. She'd have exactly the same platform if she was just a regular Instagram user though. Starting pageants so late does seem odd, i guess she wanted some validation.

No. 345936

For SO long people were offering her help or advice to help with her (psycho)somatic illnesses and she would have a tantrum (bc yes she always said somatic vomiting and whatever but she wanted it to be caused by something other than psychological issues) so it's interesting that now she's accepting or whatever of the whole psychosomatic diagnosis

No. 345983


Sometimes, we give patients the diagnosis of psychosomatic illness as a gentler way of calling them Munchies. In general, if you call a patient a Munchie, they'll disappear and start over at a different hospital. Whereas if it's put to them gently, a psychosomatic illness can be explained as a fairly serious condition that requires treatment etc. which is what they're after. There is, in reality, no real way to treat Munchies, and this is the closest we in clinical medfaggery can get to getting them the help they need and putting them in a state that they are actually willing to accept it.

No. 346137

That's not uncommon though, I mean receiving any diagnosis takes time, and I can imagine for someone to be told that their physical issues are psychological in nature, that's extra hard to get around.
I think Nicole sometimes does give good milk, but people are just grasping at straws when there's nothing. She's trying to accept her diagnosis, what's interesting here?

No. 346217


Conveniently being admitted to hospital on the day of the therapy sessions aimed at helping her psychosomatic illness isn't "trying to accept her diagnosis", it's actively avoiding getting help for it.

No. 346219

If her psychosomatic illness is caused by emotions, it's not too much of a leap to say that anxiety about discussing the anxiety which is causing the symptoms could lead to the symptoms she is trying to recover from.

No. 346239


It also makes a very convenient sympathy-grabbing opportunity as it comes with an Instagram post about hospital admission.

It's been obvious to me for a long time that she's an attention seeker and probably at minimum worsening her condition, maybe causing it.

If they were trolls maybe, but the genuine whiteknights we get in this thread are here to be holier than thou and stick up for their friends.

It's complicated. Research is showing again and again that it's not always psychologically triggered. One small study showed that a minority of patients have an emotional trigger,with others having pain, operations or medications causing the onset of symptoms. An emotional trigger is no longer part of the diagnostic criteria.

People with an emotional trigger are usually told it's conversion disorder.

My own FND is caused by trauma/PTSD. I've never been told it's "conversion disorder".

If a case of FND is caused by medications, then it's surely iatrogenic (caused by medicine!) in origin and not FND at all…

No. 347239

I doubt it too, considering the definition of FND is that it is where there is not a structural or visible abnormality explaining the symptoms - meaning it'd be impossible to be triggered by an operation or medication, since that would point that it wasn't actually functional in nature.

No. 347249


Then by definition it is not FND… FND is neurological and diagnosed when there is not a structural or visual abnormality, if his knees dislocate, which causes pain, that is both structural and would be visible to a medical professional/doctor… And as it has been said before no doctor in their right mind would say to somebody with FND that they will never walk again

No. 347265


>Functional Neurological Disorder is due to a problem with the functioning of the nervous system in a structurally normal brain. Functional symptoms are thought to derive from the brain’s inability to send and receive signals correctly, as the result of physical and/or psychological risk factors.

It is worth noting that a hallmark symptom of MBI is to claim to be a medical professional in the absence of actual medical training, or to work in the medical field and claim some higher position than they hold in actuality. Of course it's likely that we would eventually attract some of them here.

She says that pageants are about confidence and personality on stage but the only thing she did to "win" her title was submit her picture, name, birthdate, address - which has nothing to do with personality and confidence on stage! I don't know how big her area is compared to other places in Scotland but just because "hundreds" (so the e-mail she received claimed) applied does not mean that she was picked from hundreds in her area. You have to "confirm" your place by paying 250 - so she essentially paid a bunch of money to get a sash that she can parade around.

Yeah, she's definitely full of it. I recently had sepsis, and even after getting over the infection, I was on antibiotics for 6 weeks.

No doctor in their right mind would stop treatment without checking that everything was completely gone. Plus, sepsis happens really quick (like within hours), so you're not going to be walking around with any without knowing it.

Have much experience with Munchies? If you had, you knew that one of the cards they love to play most is the 'I'm suicidal! Do what I say or I'll kill myself!' one.

(Totally off topic: I'm blood cancer medfag anon. Haven't been around for a while and I haven't written most of the medfaggery here. For context - I'm a US trained SpR (speciality registrar, the equivalent of a US resident in a speciality program) at a midsize hospital in the Midlands. If anything I said was full of shit, that's quite possible - I'm not in psychiatry so my knowledge there is patchy at best and I'm treating this as a learning opportunity. I do encourage skepticism about what anyone on the internet says about medicine, though, myself included.

Honey, if he didn't marry you after 14 years, he's not going to. I can well imagine he's desperately trying to escape but she has a crisis every time he's about to break up with her, making him scared she'll die if he left.

How do all these bitches with "gastroparesis" end up with GJ tubes? In the UK, you literally have to be on death's door (and tolerating no solid) and they start with NJ as they're temporary and less risky. On IG, I can count about 15 who lose some weight and end up with permanent tubes yet they can still tolerate some food. I've seen someone who trialled a salad or grilled cheese (can't remember which one) and it made them "sick", yet not longer later, they're in surgery, getting permanent tubes. WTF America?!

It was 14 years in that picture and 15 years in the picture she posted a couple of days before that (where she says she is wearing a ring from a candle/bath bomb) as a placeholder until he gets her a new real ring.
I also find it interesting that when she was talking about getting to her week of doctors appointments (which she has been surprisingly quiet about) she gave reasons why her brother could/couldn't take her but never mentioned the boyfriend - a relationship that long you think the boyfriend would want to be involved.
That being said - I do think she is making a small effort to try to be less munchie on her IG - but does seem to post things to try to arouse doubts/suspicions hoping someone will take the bait.

She has always had that account even before the other one got shut down. I don't have access to it but I suspect that is her personal account where she doesn't get so outrageous with her medical drama. I haven't tried to request it but I think she may actually limit that one to people she knows and I have actually noticed the follower count drop on that one so I think she probably deleted people she realized were following for milk.

Actually, it does. Let's get this straight, just because it's got an ICD-10 code doesn't mean it's an 'illness' and so all is forgiven. Nope. Munchies aren't victims who can't help themselves, they're sociopathic emotional vampires sucking people who care for them bone dry. Talk for ten minutes to the husband of a Munchie who convinced him for a decade that she was seriously ill. Go on, I dare you. Ten years of lies and deceit so she can get away with being an annoying asshole. Ten years of pain for him, sleepless nights, emotional exhaustion and an inability to every really trust anyone.

This site was brought up at my cystic fibrosis support group yesterday so naturally I became curious. While I don't support what's being done here in a way I do understand the upset when it comes to munchies. It's a serious mental illness that should be treated, not the made up illnesses. I agree that it takes away resources from others who need it. 12 years ago I was diagnosed with CF. 2 years ago I received a double lung transplant. I've seen my share of munchies. I think some of the people talked about here genuinely believe they're ill because it's the parent that is the munchie. They love the attention of having a "chronically ill" child. A few years ago at clinic a mother came out of their appointment LIVID that the doctor won't put her kid on the transplant list. I'm sitting there with my portable oxygen on and asked what's happening. She said the doctor claims her kid doesn't have CF but the mother insists she does and that she needs a transplant NOW. None of the medical tests came back positive for CF. I told her CF cannot be faked, if tests say no then she doesn't have CF. No doctor in their right mind would put a healthy child on a transplant list. The child looked mortified by her mothers outburst. My problem with this site is that for those with munchies constantly denying them only makes their actions worse. Calling them crazy will only prompt more hospital visits and wasted resources when they should be in therapy.

I always have a dull ache in my chest from my sternum being cracked open. It's a constant fight to keep the body from rejecting the new organs. I think some of the folks posted about here are munchies by proxy of parent and others may be genuinely ill but overshare to the point where it looks fake.

Deedee Blancharde is the name of the mother, and Gypsy the daughter if you're interested and want to google.

In all the interviews I've read Gypsy maintains she's solely responsible, although yeah I think her bf was the one to actually physically murder the mother.

She talked about how initially it was just a fantasy between her and her bf, which considering how she was lied to about her age and otherwise developmentally stunted, seems like a semi-normal way for a teenager to react to their restrictive upbringing. But then it escalated into real planning somewhere along the way and then a real crime.

No. 348849

"With sepsis, the blood’s clotting mechanism can go into overdrive and cause blockages inside the blood vessels. When blood can’t pass through the blood vessels, oxygen and vital nutrients can’t get to the body’s tissues. If the tissues can’t get the nourishment they need, the tissues die.

When too much of the tissue dies, it has to be removed. Sometimes, doctors can remove just a small part, but other times, more drastic measures must be taken and parts of the body must be amputated.

For some people, amputations are limited to their fingers or toes, or parts of them. Others, however, may need amputations of their hands, feet, even arms or legs, all in an effort to save their life."

It's a similar to celiac disease these days…eveeyone claims to be gluten free but very few have actually had the positive biopsies and diagnosis.
A lot of people claim GP but don't really have it. I've noticed a large trend of anorexia sufferers saying they have GP..when in reality most have not had the formal testing and just go by the symptoms they experience during recovery (which can mimic GP symptoms) now if one lingers on recovery for a long time or go back and forth a lot the symptoms will be around longer. It is also known that a lot of sickly anorexic (any ed but specially anorexia) suffers can have the testing done and it will come back positive for GP. HOWEVER it's not an issue at that point and unless it is significant (usually indicating it was pre-existing) it's only considered a delay that will go away with proper nutrition and care. Something during recovery they will put these people on medications to help, but it's taken away once your body has healed. A delay is different than Gp. GP is not reverseable.
It can also be common for people to be given a NJ in treatment with lowered oral meals until thwir body starts healing and they slowly ween off tube feeds to oral to help prevent mental and physical set backs.

A G/J Tube a G tube a J tube are not permanent. They can be easily removed. It's just that they last longer than any Nasal tube..the stomas around the stomach tunes close up really quickly once pulled.
Typically here(us) they will start with an NJ tube for GP. As a J or G tube is avoided as much as possible. A lot of GP sufferers actually prefer a NJ tube..to each their own..way less scaring that way. Lol.
But in some cases a person just cannot have an NJ. Which leaves no other option but a J.
Vomiting can be one of those reasons. It's easy to throw up a nasal tube and the more you have to have it placed the more damage it can cause your nasal area sinus throats, more danger is involved the more it happens..its weighted and that can sometimes poke the wrong area and cause some issues. So if someone like MLS insists all she does is throw up and the dr gives her her precious tube I wouldn't be that surprised if he gives her a J tube to prevent complications with her "constant vomiting"
I'll be ashamed if he gives her a G tube also or even a GJ (these can flip causing the same issues as a NJ) with her anorexia and purging behaviors.
Sometimes they will give you an NJ inpatient under obs. To see how you handle the feed and if you throw up etc before they will consider a J tube.
For the surgical j tube it's a little similar it depends on what type and why you get it.
It is was more common for NG and G tubes than NJ and J tubes outside of the motility issue bubble because they are much safer, easier and less invasive.
All tubes arent really as common as it appears on social media in adults.
Sorry for the length but I hope that helps answer some of your tube questions.

Like in the case of celiac disease, there is a sudden flood of cases that makes proper diagnostic channels flooded for GP. Waiting times for GESs have risen drastically. When I was a young 'un (say, second year med student, 2005 or so), a GES was a 'cool' study. It was rare, it was done only by a small number of nuclear medicine centres and few gastros even knew of it. It was mainly used for the rare diabetic GP case and for suspected obstructive malignancies. Now the waiting time for the fucking thing is several weeks to months, nuclear is flooded with that shit and a lot of doctors just decide to fuck it and go with a clinical diagnosis and the patient's fervent wishes for a tube.

Being bored as shit, I did a cross reference on our medical statistics portal that summarizes a lot of data from various states for breakdowns of all 0D6* interventions (G-tubes and GJs, whether percutaneously or endoscopically inserted) against its indication, by five year segments. It's a fucking shocker. Just ten years ago, virtually all feeding tubes for adults were for people with CF, cancer, post-transplantees, a small number of people with GI issues who benefited from gastric percutaneous decompression and drainage and people with severe disabilities of the neurological kind that resulted in dysphagia or aspiration. In the last five years, almost half of the tubes inserted were for K31.84 (gastroparesis), with an average patient age of 24 (odd, I would have thought that because at least some of these cases would be diabetic GP and all type diabetes has an onset peak in the teens and another onset peak in the 40s onwards, it would be much lower or much higher!). Fuck, it's become a god damned style accessory. Worst of all, if tubes are demanded because the patients feel at risk of malnutrition and death, where are the deaths from gastroparesis or related functional causes? I don't see them. It's as if an epidemic of gastroparesis suddenly arose in the last five to ten years.

I'm sure it had nothing to do with spoonie instagram.

IANACardiologist, but I can't conceivably believe that after all that your circulatory system is well enough to do sports. Not the least given the cost of epinephrine on your microvasculature. It's not uncommon in A&E (that's ER for Americans) to see people who for whatever reason jammed more than 3-4 epipens, all at once or in intervals, in their thighs and ended up with the tips of their fingers starting to necrose. I have serious doubts anyone with this level of issues would even be allowed by any sports organizing body to compete, especially given that there is a potential link between MCAS and exercise induced anaphylaxis (in fact some argue EIA is a subclass of MCAS).

Doesn't she have gastroparesis? If so, why the fuck have an NG? It's fucking useless as you cannot really vent through an NG (the gauge of an NG is much smaller than of a PEG/RIG), you absolutely positively cannot drain through an NG save by using suction and even then it's usually not working, and of course if what you're eating comes back up owing to GP, you'll vomit up whatever is put down an NG. Never mind the risks and side effects of an untrained moron self inserting an NG. It's easy for trained people to fuck it up and shove it the lungs and fail to detect it until it's too late. It also scars the nose, limiting future NG access when she might actually need it. Fucksakes.

This often seems true with the latest trends but at the same time any doctor in their right mind wouldn't do any of that unless absolutely medically necessary..G tubes are really pretty simple and no big deal..they can place a G tube (PEG) during an upper GI..its outpatient and relatively complication free (there are exceptions to everything though) you can change your peg at home and the stoma care is pretty simple and easy.(again, there is always exceptions specially when you have munchies fucking with their shit)
The bigger changes like a J tube, central line and stomas are not handed out like pegs due to how incredibly dangerous they can be..a dr cannot legally give a patient that unless it's needed and often times, at least here, the drs opt for second or third opinions before going down that road if anything seems iffy..huge liability..unless it is an emergency of course and unless it's clear the patient needs it. But they don't hand these out like NG/NJ/G/GJ tubes.
However it's not uncommon to see them have these devices while in the hospital temporarily and that's when these munchies milk it like crazy.
There are a couple of munchies on IG that I feel like fake having a device by ordering it online and finding a way to attach it to themselves for attention..much like buying an NG online and placing it themselves.

This is a bit older post of hers but
Your comment screamed this picture to me so I had to post it in reply. I do not know if this is an NG or NJ, but I believe she was actually home or in a PHP program when she had this tube.
She has not come forward with any "I'm dying from GP that my severe anorexia caused" bs that I am aware of…which is so strange for this munchie..maybe her appeal is keeping her super severe medical complications from anorexia a "secret" (non-existent) for more attention..like her last gofundme where her friend claimed she was dying and soon needed dialysis yet her insurance wouldn't cover her "legit" medical needs and she somehow magically cured of it all once taking like 3000$ from people and being served a reality check she wasn't going back to any precious treatment center and daddy wasn't forking over hundreds of thousands out of pocket again.

(It bothers me that she always refers to her ED as chronic) but the description is also a gold mine.

I don't understand why these munchies don't realize people will catch on to the lying when their bs doesn't add up.

Do they ever feel bad about hurting so many people and using precious resources millions dont have easy accsess to? They do enough research to be able to lie about illness online but that research should also show them how much people really suffer who have the illness they are faking..
It's got to be on the psychopathic spectrum to some degree..specially by proxy, yes?

She claims to have heart problems they can't figure out. She has had a lot of testing for that also but yet they don't know what is causing her heart problems….she threw a huge fit when they took her off her propanol..until they put her back on it to shut her up as she was whining nonstop about it and it's not going to hurt her anyway. Note her pcp put her back on it, not a cardio. She's had echoes, lots of ekgs, ultrasounds, 24hr and 48hr monitor and a 30 day event monitor tests yet they still can't figure out what is going on with her heart….her last appt went fine and her main comment was they still don't know and it hasn't gotten worse with a lingering feeling that upset her and upped her game.
Basically nothing is wrong. The most is side effects from her messing with it..probably meds and behind the scene type things. She's been on the heart issue since she went to treatment for the" most serious case of anorexia in the state"
To mls
You can't fake heart problems like some GI problems bby.

Because famously all we do 24/7 is rank patients by severity. No, really. Even in conditions where status is not easily quantifiable, hospitals across the state spend all day discussing who the most severe case is. HIPAA clearly doesn't apply to that, because it's totally crucial to know who the most severe anorexic, gastroparetic etc. is in the state. They then get a gold star and a certificate signed by Hippocrates and Galen himself (and a lifetime pass to the psych ward).

Hi original anon here! I'm doing well thank you. :)

Her Facebook was the worst for me. It was a post nearly every day about some struggle that could have been made better if she didn't ignore the comments trying to help her and give her advice. One time a much older person was trying to offer some solidarity by saying what he had gone through, and she started talking over him and saying how she was practically dying.

I think she had several GoFundMe pages one of which was to get a service dog and another was to get a tattoo. I think there was a third where she wanted help raising money to color her hair again. It was terrible.



Anon, were you in treatment with her as well? You are right, one day she got upset at people calling her out for her before-and-after lowest weight and recovery photos saying how it was inappropriate to post them especially with people in recovery in her friends list and she called it harassment. She said she would stop posting on Facebook for "a long time" and I think posted again in a few hours complaining about some movie or book or how her hair color is fading.

Never in treatment with her, I just come across people like her everyday. (Mental health, home-based services for adults who require support managing their illnesses) lots of them are like dani, with suffering Olympics (a room full of borderlines for therapy is the biggest pissing contest you'll ever see) or insisting that they are far too unwell to live and need continued support and disability pensions.

The worst clients will be in and out of ER more than weekly. Once, a woman in residential decided that once the episode of Gilmore girls she was watching was over she was going to drive herself to the local er for psych triage. The only thing wrong was she was bored because it was the last episode of the season.

Dani fits all the usual hallmarks for malingerers and lazy opportunists who latch on to disability or mental illness as a lifelong excuse to be babied and provided for.
How often were you all help responsible for her feeling shitty in therapy? Bet you were 'bullies and singling her out' if you dared mention that she's being hugely inappropriate.

But how many times has she complained her doctors don't want her on disability for severe chronic anorexia? And then her mini little freak outs come time to redo the paperwork and all that to try to stay on it.
Yet here they agree and she doesn't even know why.
So what's the truth?
I'm thinking more of a slowness disability maybe..but she wouldn't need to fake being sicker for that like she does
Either way at least where I am you can't get on disability or Medicare/Medicaid, SSI, etc without proof from your Drs that it's a necessity.

Is it just me suspicious about the prevalence of 'some muscle disease' or 'medical mystery' or 'unknown mitochondrial disease' cases? It is not at all common in modern medicine to be undiagnosed for long, least of all when it's not some weird congenital disorder, many of which indeed do not have a name (we call them swans - syndromes without a name). In most cases, a 'medical mystery' raises questions of intentional deception, and of course you're a mystery if you refuse the obvious psychosomatic or factitious diagnosis.

It's-a-me, blood cancer medfag. Not that I really care as to whether you think me or anyone else is genuine, definitely not enough to risk professional censure. I am a little puzzled as to how I became 'tragic' (got sick, was shit timing, got over it, life goes on), though. Also FYI: depending on speciality, there is a lot of downtime in medicine. It can get boring (though I'm pretty sure at least some of that is because the NHS is not profit driven and so things are a lot more leisurely than back home), so yeah, you'll find plenty of time to fuck about. I became interested in this thread because we see a lot of these people on a day to day basis and I think deep down every doctor, nurse and allied health professional is annoyed at their bullshit but it's almost a professional taboo to bring up how we feel about malingerers and Munchies. I don't know if the other medfags are genuine, but why should I care? I'm not asking them to operate on me, and as long as what they're saying makes sense, I don't care if they're a consultant neurosurgeon or a FY1 with a Walter Mitty complex.

Anyone follow this chick? Doesn't look like a munchie, but sure is way over the top.

No. 350841


Ambulatory fluids are done almost always using an IV pump and thus a backpack is perfectly ok. It is in fact common for people on TPN whose infusion times may be 12-18 hours a day to use a backpack holding their bag and a pump.

Yeah most feeds/fluids aren't done by gravity, they're done by pump. Only bolus feeds are usually done by gravity.
Went to school with a guy on TPN who was hooked up to his backpack at least half of the day.

No. 350957

Feeds are, but for iv home hydration, it's common to have it done by gravity simply because iv pumps are a lot more expensive than a feed pump. TPN definitely needs a pump, but hydration doesn't. There's special tubing that adjusts the rate. Insurance companies don't want to have to pay for anything they don't have to. There's even special containers for iv medications that don't require a pump.

Sage for medfagging

No. 350982


Elastomeric pumps (balloon pumps) don't work for larger volumes and cheaper IVs. Typically they're used for chemo or abx, never seen them for fluids or TPN. For a long term fluid dependent person, it is absolutely paramount to have a controlled rate of flow lest they overload their heart and/or kidneys, and gravity kits are not very precise. Plus, especially with young people, providers now largely recognize that spending six hours a day hooked up to fluids is not fun.

I think it's really funny that she always snaps when people wish her "Get well soon". And she always replies with her sob story :)
She just got diagnosed with endo, but she keeps writing that she has it for 13 years. Getting your period might be painful, but how can you be so sure that you already have it for 13 years?
Recently she had 9 incurable chronic illnesses and now she only has 7? And what's really strange: What happened to her breast lumps and her chronic sinusitis?
Honestly I'd like to have a doctor who is able to cure incurable illnesses!
Suddenly her RA isn't just severe but "end stage RA" and thanks to it she has heart problems. Depending on the day she also has lung problems. My knowledge about RA is limited, but isn't it kinda odd that she's able to walk without crutches? And using your smartphone must be impossble during morning stiffness during the end stage, when your hands are so painful?

I guess it's done differently in other places, my experience has been different from what people are saying. (Going to power level here, sorry) I do iv fluids at home, and don't have a pump, and everything was ordered by Mayo. There's a special valve in tubing controls the rate very closely, like a pump would, just with a lower maximum volume per hour. (Although being mobile would be awesome, I'm a bit jealous of people who have a pump!)

I still can't stand when spoonies turn their illness into a fashion statement and give medical things cutesy pet names. Guess it's more of a personal annoyance.

Average time it takes to get diagnosed with endo is 6-10 years and theres a massive difference between period pain and endometrial pain. Still no need to behave like she does, she gives the rest of us a bad name. Plus if her endo was so bad they'd be putting her on shit like zoladex and if that failed surgicaly remove the growths. This girl is blatantly full of shit. Plus what is "end stage RA?" She makes it sound like her arthritis is terminal. I cant speak german but has she ever discussed any treatments shes having, or is it just how sick she is, all the time?

The constant asking for validation

No. 351053

She thinks that everything is Endo pain now, even though she also has Colitis and Fibro. And after her doctor diagnosed Endo via ultrasound she thinks that she really has Endo.
She never discussed the treatment options for endo? She only wrote that it can also be found in the lung and brain.

She's discussing her treatment for RA all the time. Someone only has to write "Get better" or "I'm so sorry, that you're in pain" and her answer to that contains every treatment she had so far and how many illnesses she has.
Sadly there is end stage RA. Most of the time she only posts what hurts. She is trying to talk to her surgeon since November or so, but she keeps claiming that she can't reach him. She only had surgeries for her elbow and wrist(right arm), which isn't that much.

Sadly a lot of people are supporting her. At the beginning she wasn't that dramatic, but now? Even followers write, that she shouldn't be on Facebook/Instagram, when she is in so much pain

Half the 'cripple punks' are perfectly fine and obsessed with disability as another way of externalizing their super special queerness.

No. 351065

ISTR that she's one who goes on about being terminal a lot?

The ridiculous posing in that tag speaks for itself, though, more than any one account. robynlambird is my favourite because she's ragingly narcissistic and constantly calls herself a model.her CP itself may be real? but she's milks the hell out of it and loves the attention her disability brings her. She's playing on the munchie culture of IG in everything she does. "Athlete. Mentor. Youtuber." kek

No. 351067


The mentor part is correct. She's a mentor of sorts to Munchies and people with real disabilities who wish to milk the everliving daylight out of them. She has taken a lot of them under her wing, including some underage. I used to know one of them - mild EDS/POTS, gets by perfectly fine, lives and works and stuff. Suddenly this girl, who used to run marathons, decided she wanted to be a disability athlete, and whined until she got a wheelchair, quit her job and now her life is basically spoonie whining and activism. Thanks Robyn.

You cannot diagnose endo via ultrasound unless its SUPER severe, amd if it was that severe she'd be having surgeries and hormone treatments for it, not just bitching about it online. I smell bullshit. And with the end stage RA, i doubt she'd be able to type with fingers that sore and deformed.she may have it but i dont think hers is end stage.Sounds like she needs to pull her head out her arse.

No. 351110

There is absolutely no such thing as 'end stage RA'. Short of every single joint in your body being frozen locked (ROM=0), there just isn't an end point or a final 'stage' of RA. It's a progressive illness and it is extremely rare for people in the developed world who have access to biologics and other lovely drugs to develop significant impairment. I'm calling bullshit here, not because I think she's not sick (she is) but because the severely disabling end stage RA she talks about doesn't really happen anymore.

The new tool to purge all their food. Bulimia without the vomiting.
These spoonies use their fashion statement NG/PEG's to drain all their stomach contents out so they can eat like fattys and protest their innocence that they are so ill due to GI issues "look how much weight I keep loosing, I'm so ill".
Granted those with legitimate GP need to vent and drain but they don't misuse it!

No. 351270


That's why they're given Farrell bags. To save you the grisly detail: purging through a tube generally requires a back and forth motion as even high diameter tubes tend to clog up easily. On the other hand, if you have GP, theoretically all you need to drain and decompress is air and/or stomach acid with or without bile, which should come out neatly with the constant suction of the Farrell. Putting patients on a Farrell and making sure they don't mess with it is a great way to tell the bullshitters from the real patients.

No. 351299

Does anyone find it odd that virtually everyone doing the #cripplepunk thing has EDS, POTS, GP, CRPS or a combination of these? It's almost as if these could be easily faked by kids desperately craving something else to be special about (nobody cares if you're genderfluid or genderqueer anymore, so they have to add something!). It's almost as if these 'conditions' left you with enough spare time to spend on activism, yelling about privilege and ableism and 'raising awareness' (of yourself and how super special you and your illness are).

No. 351303

those "crippled queers" give actual crippled queers like me a bad name

jokes aside, its amusing how quickly their stories fall apart. especially when faced with someone who is legitimately chronically ill and/or queer. there's also a difference between joking about/casually bringing up your conditions and sexuality, and what these munchies are doing.

No. 351305


It's perplexing. They seem to voluntarily decide to be the most disadvantaged minority they can turn themselves into then rant about discrimination, they intentionally dress and make up to the point of being obscenely intentionally ugly because fuck beauty standards but then rant about how nobody catcalled them, they force some well-meaning parent to buy them a wheelchair off the internet that they don't need and despite being able to walk just fine they get insulted if there are no disabled bathrooms available. As a disabled person using a wheelchair, they disgust me. To some, it's not an option or a phase or a toy to make themselves look super pathetic.

No. 351307


What the fuck is with those slightly gape-jawed poses? They're not even anywhere close to a person's face while unconscious, you can even see the strain of her trying to keep that face while selfying.

Also I call bullshit at her keeping her glasses while unconscious/in ER, ergo she's milking the situation t seem more severe. Whenever I've ended up unconscious around medical professionals, my glasses ended up being handed back to me after I regain consciousness.

No. 351310


THIS. Also the few times I was unconscious, I had my eyelids taped down to prevent exposure keratopathy. ICUs take that shit very seriously. No way she would have her glasses there.

No. 351314

I think it's because they sound very dramatic and scary even though they're mostly just annoying to have. People who have a lot of those specific illnesses are not even close to being totally disabled and usually they aren't fatal barring accidents, but the moment you say heart problems, dislocated, or paralyzed, people who aren't familiar with that specific condition freak out and pile on the sympathy. I feel like a lot of the ott spoonies may actually have the condition they claim and latched on to the attention but aren't nearly as severe as they pretend to be. The unnecessary wheelchairs, braces, and tubes are things they use to try and convince themselves that they're really truly the sickest, most disabled, cripple punk that ever made being sick part of their identity. Kind of like when some ana-chans want to be hospitalized so they can say they were the best at being anorexic.

If they didn't have whatever illness(es) they latched on to, they'd just be trying to become the edgiest youtuber, the most messed up heroin addict, or whatever toopoor is trying to be. It's kind of what makes them cows.

Okay i just checked her out and damn.
She claims to have CRPS because of nervepain and tingling in her foot. CRPS are one of the worst pain condition ever, causing people to commit suicide. It's not just tingling, it's changes in skin color and temperature.
Yeez this girl…

Also if she had CFS as she claims, she probably wouldn't be able to dance on that level

No. 351389

Because for her bad attention is better than no attention. She is trying to bait people into asking about her arm or talking about her "severe" anorexia (I don't doubt she was anorexic but I don't think it was as severe as she makes it out to be).
I do think she has some sort of mental health issue but people tend to be more understanding/sympathetic of physical illnesses which is why she is clinging to anything she can think of. If half of these munchies would stop exploiting every ache and pain they may actually get the attention they crave.

No. 351422

Busy taking a ton of screenshots from her various accounts. Besides being a total munchie, she's weird as hell. She changed her name to that of an American girl doll, refuses to answer to her birth name, runs around dressed as said doll, has a wheelchair for her doll, etc. noticed that she says she uses a wheelchair to get around campus but that's it - she still dances. That's actually how I know her, we are members of a ballet group on fb. I'm also a dancer but struggle with getting to any and all class due to gastroparesis and pots symptoms, yet she's claiming she has 14 chronic illnesses but is constantly in a show or taking class. She just got a cast off and is going back to dance in a week or two. Totally not suspicious at all. Also, I noticed that about the CRPS. A lot of her issues started popping up right around the time mine presented, she's also obsessed with 13 reasons why and talking about all of her mental health problems she so severely struggles with

I couldn't find the hashtag post, she must've deleted that after realizing how ridiculous it sounded. I'm still pretty sure her GP isn't real as I recall an earlier conversation where she told me she had been diagnosed with IBS and harassed the doctor into giving her a GES but he didn't think she has gastroparesis, so who knows. I never saw a post about having a tilt table done but suddenly she has pots and dysautonomia…I honestly don't pay much attention to her but when I was reading this thread she was the first person to jump to my mind

No. 351481

Cause she looks average here. The flat abdomen and ribs, to dani, are proof of her most severe anorexia ever. Plus hopefully some people might ask how she broke her arm and she can spin the story for pity like a fifth-grade kid.

No. 351503

pots is dysautonomia. dysautonomia is the umbrella term while pots is a specific ans disorder. i've come to loathe other potsies because all they do is whine about how crappy they feel. yeah like no shit, that's what pots is. just stop whining about it. some also forego their medications completely so they can just complain about being super symptomatic but the jokes on them. if they had tachycardia all the time and dont take their meds, heart failure will be in their future.

No. 351520

I swear, she's still trying to prove how ~severe~ her AN is. Like, posting 2 or 3 year old pictures for pretty much no reason (not that there ever really is) just pisses me the fuck off? She def does not have any serious medical issues, or she wouldnt be grasping at straws and trying to prove how severe her anorexia was. Maybe she has some chronic illness, but if she does, it's definitely not severe, and I doubt she even has any at all…

No. 351536

i know for a fact she doesn't have MCAS. she's never mentioned it besides this post, never referred to it at all. also i agree, if she had CFS she wouldn't be able to dance like she does - like i said, i'm unable to dance largely in part to cfs, pots, GP, and other illnesses. she's ridiculously functional for someone claiming to have 14 invisible illnesses, especially those 14 specific ones

Bingo. Like, I use a wheelchair due to EDS and because I'm not walking most of the time I don't need to use splints on my ankles or the braces on my knees any more. But these InstaSpoonies will combine every medical aid they can in order to look The Most Sick.

No. 351596


Same. I used to take ballet classes and had to give them up due to the amount of recovery time I ended up needing. Also her "diagnosis" of CRPS for tingling in her feet? When you do ballet your feet take an almighty pummeling. I don't know anyone who did pointe work for any length of time who doesn't have foot pain or numb toes.

No. 351598


Oh, and if she's a ballet dancer & munchie, of COURSE she's going to diagnose herself with EDS due to her natural flexibility. EDS isn't just flexibility, it's (real life example) reaching for your phone on the seat next to you and having your fucking shoulder dislocate.
Yes, that happened.

Sage for samefagging.

No. 351604


i'm a dance major (when my health lets me, which it isn't) and still do pointe work. if she's having all these foot and ankle injuries + diagnosed herself with CRPS how is she still dancing? plus she's also diabetic…the tingling could be neuropathy, not a huge diagnoses like CRPS. i'm like you, i need a huge amount of recovery time between classes, so i'm not hugely optimistic about being able to dance still. i was diagnosed with EDS after noticing a huge increase in flexibility well past the age after flexibility is supposed to decrease, but you're absolutely right - a lot of dancers with chronic illnesses self diagnose with EDS. i think i screencapped a post of hers where she talks about subluxations and other crap she claims has happened to her due to her 'EDS' and i just rolled my eyes. there are so many red flags with this girl. did i mention she has a 'psychiatric service dog'?

No. 351608


I'm just so confused as to how she thinks dancing isn't going to end up literally crippling her if she believes she has all these conditions. Then again, maybe that's the point - she can be a tragic victim of her art.

No. 351613

Dani's definitely ill, but it's not with the disorders she wants. She'd probably be functional if she wasn't so obsessed with her instagram.
Some cognitive disability or ABI and some personality disorder imo, but I'm not gonna jump in on the medfagging junk going on rn.

No. 351617


not going to lie, i cackled. while giving up dancing sucks, i know my limitations. i'm not going to put myself in a wheelchair and braces before i need them…she's already had multiple casts and braces, uses a wheelchair for 'CFS' (honestly if you can't walk across your college campus due to CFS how the hell can you dance!?) and more that she's faking/glorifying/playing up. i'm surprised her ankles can still hold her up on pointe if she has all the issues she complains about

No. 351619

Yeah, I don't doubt that she could get some basic education and a real job if she applied herself. Something like working in a daycare or a nursing home would probably suit her. I don't think she'd like a lot of jobs, but something where she helps care for others might be a good outlet for some of her feelings. Instead of being the one seeking nurturing, she could give it.

No. 351624


Hmm, Beverly Allitt springs to mind…

No. 351625

Why do you think that?

No. 351628


Because Allitt went from Munchausens to MBP.
She even had her appendix removed unnecessarily when she was a student…reminds me of Robyn's "appendectomy saga". Then took a caring profession, and found herself mysteriously alone in the room with several infants when they had fatally low blood sugars, or unexplained heart attacks (she was injecting air into their veins). She still got to be the centre of attention.

Yeah, I'm thinking something that keeps her on her feet, occupied. But not where she gets the chance to talk to people about herself.

No. 351633


She needs something to keep her busy and give her an identity beyond being sick. (Being a caregiver in a nursing home would be terrible since its hard work with little thanks and she would gain access to all sorts of medical information and supplies she doesn't need).
I do think she does have mental health issues, possibly severe depression/anxiety or something of the sort that can manifest physical symptoms but is often misunderstood so she clings to the physical things since they gain more understanding. If she isn't intentionally causing her no so severe "severe" gastroparesis then it could very well just be an anxiety issue.

She seems like she would be fully capable of holding down some sort of job - if she got the proper therapy/medication combination. Her current therapist doesn't seem to be doing her any favors. It wouldn't necessarily be easy for her to hold down a job but finding a routine and identity outside of being sick would do her a world of good.

i had both of those screencapped but got distracted from my phone. to me it just screams attention seeking - you're not being treated differently because you're in a wheelchair, you're being treated differently because you don't need to be in a damn wheelchair. the video got me as well. what idiot runs in a cast in the first place? you're just asking for more potential problems from that imo.

also, didn't mean to interweave my own issues, but i felt my own input as a dancer was helpful in pointing things out. please don't pasture me either, i'm sure i can find some excellent milk to make up for the discussion

(despite this being an anonymous image board, I don't give that you know who I am)

This is Ali.
Yes, I have watched this board ever since I found out I was on it. No one tells me these things, but I just stop and watch the ignorance flooding into (many of the posts in) this forum. And because of this forum, despite how ugly it can get, I did learn something. But I'm not playing the victim (unless you see yourselves as bullies).

I genuinely apologized. I actual saw some wrong in what I was doing, for goodness sakes. I didn't write the apology to play the victim; you want people to stop doing what they're doing and realize what they have done is wrong, so there you go. I'm going to stop posting about my health in "munchie fashion". But I'm not going to stop getting the care that I need. I don't clog up multiple doctors. I rarely go to the hospital. I get diagnostics and treatments for things that my doctor has witnessed in office, not just things I've brought up to him. I pay for all of my crap (or insurance picks it up, which is paid for). I'm not using up resources that I don't need. And I would give ANYTHING to not be ill and go back to the life I once had. I don't want this life. Had you read the apology, you would know there is more to me than my illnesses but I never showed that side on an account I made to keep the embarrassing details out of my personal life. I HATE being ill and hate showing signs of my illness.

So stop. All you're doing is stalking me at this point. You're not getting the "milk" you want so you're finding any pathetic excuse to make crap up or dig into literally any place you want. Laugh all you want, think things are fake all you want, but stalking (looking for any possible content on me, trying to gain access to my private accounts, "we have spies on her personal account" → that'll go over well in defending yourself in me "playing the victim") and posting about me is unacceptable, especially when they are lies.

Anyway… my apology was sincere and I'm sorry some of you are too arrogant to see that. But you need to stop. Thanks.

Hey Ali. Please fuck off. Your post is replete with lies (ex: "I don't clog up multiple doctors. I rarely go to the hospital", as I seem to remember you had something like a dozen medical professionals on your now defunct tumblr page, refer above), and while I applaud you on your seeming glance of coherency, it is also very clear you are still delusional as fuck.

Whoops, bet you weren't counting on someone remembering your latest forays into diagnoses? I seem to remember you were diagnosed with delusional disorder, and eschewed the continuing diagnosis of BPD? Which is pretty clearly you have.

But yeah, no one's going to stop because you apologized. You're sucking up resources of people that actually need the medical care you don't need, such as for EDS, POTS, whatever. You just keep chasing diagnoses, sucking up doctors' time, and treatment slots, desperately hoping to get validation for the hideous black hole you have gaping inside you.

Or when you are a munchie who wants to make yourself look sick you purposefully chose that terminology. The fluids she is referring to is anything she had to drink. If she wasn't trying to score extra sick points, she would have just said "in clothes with the little I ate/drank".

She is really pushing for sympathy points right now and is trying to go the anorexia flare route since nobody is buying the gastroparesis route. She wants people to comment and say you don't look fat, you don't need to lose weight, you are beautiful.

No. 352119

I think she was apologising for her prior Instagram behaviour. I may be in the minority but I doubt she would clinically be considered to have Munchausen's. I could be wrong but my guess is she's just a young woman who is emotionally unstable and uses mild ill health as a source of attention. Same with the doll girl who was posted earlier (Felicity Rose?). I don't think either of them is on the level of "faking" a whole illness, more like exaggerating and being melodramatic. That's sadly become normal on Instagram although they are at the extreme end (I hope Ali does see how unhelpful I think is, I think she makes a fair point that following her around online after she's deleted her spoonie account is a bit pointless).

Then there are people like Kelly and similar who are more concerning IMO because they literally drain resources and have huge followings to manipulate and mislead. I agree with the anon above that she could be faking MS. They're often milkier than these young women who aren't set in their ways yet, in my opinion.

assuming she's in her late teens to mid twenties, she's too young for MS. in most cases, symptoms don't start until late 30's, and even then it's still hard to diagnose and is usually written off initially as nerve problems, ie the numbness in the extremities and balance issues.

but in her defense, if she actually did see a doctor and get a diagnosis, it's probably false. as far as i know from the cases in my immediate family, it's also not something that shows up in fucking bloodwork. how she went from "blood disorder" to "MS" is outrageous. does she even know what the disease is?

sorry for the autism, my dad and his sister both have MS and it's incredibly severe and watching their decline over the years is heartbreaking.

bust still, it's pretty rare for MS to appear in people younger than mid-to-late thirties since it's a chromosomal thing triggered by stress/environmental factors/smoking. has she mentioned her symptoms anywhere else that could indicate she's telling the truth?

Found her current medication. It seems like she's taking 200mg Tramal, 8mg Hydal and 16mg Xefo. She also has/had Colitis, so it's kinda odd that she's taking Xefo. And I don't think Xefo is a good idea, when you tend to take Aspirin for a cold. And she's on Rituximab.
And when she's in so much pain all the time it seems a bit odd, that her doses are so low.

It really bothers me seeing how many people seemingly fake serious medical issues. One thing that I've seen a ton in the spoonie/ill community online is people who seem to get diagnosed with something after one test/one doctors visit. I had severe aplastic anemia (year and a half post bmt from my brother to cure it!) and it took a month and a half, three bone marrow biopsies, and multiple different blood tests before they finally diagnosed me, even though it was pretty clear it's what I had I went into the hospital with a Hg of 49, platelets of 15, and basically non-existent white count). Furthermore, as someone who was basically just putting off dying for a few months while I waited for my transplant, I still went to university everyday (cell bio degree :)), I did my best to do light work outs that wouldn't cause any dizziness or fainting, and I honestly only ever made a few posts about it. People who fake serious illnesses make me sick, because I had to fight to get people to believe I was sick, so people faking it is really just making it harder for legitamely sick peoples to be recognized. I really hope that these people get the mental help they seem to need.

The other thing I hate? Fucking Vogmasks.

Now, masks are appropriate in the severely immunosuppressed (post transplant, immune deficiency, chemo, etc.) and in rare circumstances during pollen season they might anecdotally help people with atopy, though the point of atopy is that if it gets in touch with their skin or eyes, it can still provoke a nasty reaction.

Now, these situations are rare. People can be on heavy duty immunosuppressants as we give out say for Crohn's disease or various other autoimmune diseases (say 2-3mg azathioprine per kg body weight) or even cytotoxic chemo and not need a mask. The reality is that these masks are not in any sense justified when at the same time you keep touching shit other people have touched without gloves (people who are immunosuppressed often wear cotton gloves for this very reason), eating random shit that no one with serious immunosuppression should (milk, uncooked meats etc.) and generally don't care much for separation.

And don't even get me started on the bullshit explanation about being 'allergic to everything'. The eosinophilias that would cause that are insanely rare and present very differently than just being allergic to everything (sorry, not gonna give Munchies tips here).

She (assuming you're talking about Kellerina) doesn't even have typical MS morphologies like Dawson's fingers.

None have MS or any symptoms suggestive of it. She did not even consider that her issues might be her brain shutting down from lack of oxygen due to severe anemia - no, she went straight to MS when tbh most of her symptoms are not very specific. Sure, she had bladder issues, but that's associated with cord MS, not brain MS, as far as I'm aware (my remit is the other end of people). She never reported Lhermitte's, meningism, anatomically confined paraparesis (i.e. limited to a dermatome rather than a random area) or, most importantly, optic neuritis. It is very rare for someone to have a completely healthy optic nerve and great eyesight but have MS.

The following is from my friend, who works as a child life specialist (basically, sort of a cross between social worker and psychotherapist to children who spend long periods of time in hospital, including those who may never leave). Her commentary:

"We explicitly discourage this. When parents go home with a kid hooked up to vents and tubes and IV lines, we explicitly tell them to make the room look as friendly as they can and not turn it into a hospital. Parents who are a little too keen to do that are dodgy, by the way. Children who are surrounded by medical equipment and feel like they're in hospital even at home are at risk of getting institutionalised and they have a tough time to function in other environments once they recover. I'm not sure how this translates to adults, but even in the case of teens we encourage an environment that is far from the cold clinical environment of a hospital. Often we see kids who have grown up with parents who built a hospital room at home pretend to have issues so they can be admitted because the only environment in which they feel at ease is a hospital."

How easy is it to get a helper/assistance dog in the USA? I've seen Instaspoonies talk about getting their dog accredited at Petsmart!
Here you can't buy your own dog, you have to register, meet super strict criteria, then be matched with a suitable trained dog.

(I'm a wheelchair user and we've considered applying for a service dog to help with various things both practical and medical, but I only just meet criteria)

No. 352543


There's no legal category of assistance dog in the USA. Thus, anyone can call their pet an assistance dog, get a suitable harness, etc. You can call your pet etc. an assistance dog, there's nothing that prohibits you from doing so. The so-called assistance dog registries are scams.

Legislation on access encompasses all animals, whether they're called sssistance dogs or not, who fulfill certain conditions. Animals who don't are generally considered 'emotional support animals' which is a nice way to say 'pet with an idiot for a handler'. As such, it's not the registration or the harness that makes an assistance dog, but what it does for the disabled person. However, owing to the minefield that ADA and access legislation is, most people just look at the dog and if it has the harness or the handler has an ID, they assume it's legit.

In the USA you can either owner train your dog or mini horse to specific stuff in the ADA law. Like they need to be well behaved have tasks to mitigate your disability a long with a bunch of other stuff. It's a lot of work and TBH I feel most owner trainers shouldn't be owner training and also a good lot of them don't even need a dog. You can also get one from a program which is a whole different thing and you have to raise to give the program money. But there is no registry in the USA for service dogs. Also therapy dogs and emotional support dogs and other non dog and horse support animals are just pets and have no formal training and cannot have access to any non pet friendly places.

Hey guys I'm new here but I just wanted to clarify the thing about service dogs in the USA. So, currently there is no official registry or anything like that for service animals, therefore anyone can buy a harness or "ID card" and pass their pet off as a service animal. This is non-compliant with the ADA and they're attempting to pass laws (starting in Massachusetts) that enforce strict rules about what classifies as a service animal. So - it has to be well-trained by an approved school/training facility and won't allow "emotional support animals" into restaurants, aircraft cabins, etc. I know this because I'm blind and have a trained service animal that is there to perform specific tasks.

After my nurse is done with measurements and I have to sit around for ages in a tiny dull room waiting for my doctor to come in, I could totally understand why people would do some retarded selfie poses or other dumb things just to pass the time. I'm not an impatient person and don't have ADHD, but something about waiting for the doctor in their office just drives me mad with boredom, much moreso than being in the waiting room.

You guys do realize that we find you repugnant, right? And think you are aggressively mistreating yourselves physically in order to garner attention from medical specialists?

On a different note, those of you feeling the need to open up about your different medical paraphenalia, please shut the fuck up. I don't give a shit if you need a wheelchair, an IV, or a fucking VOGmask.

The probability of three inoperable spinal tumours (yet not a trace of her undergoing cytostatic therapy or radiation or anything…), MS AND CRPS is rather low.

Tbh she definitely feels like a lowkey cow, but probably doesn't have the high volume mental disorders that uber cows like Ali, Shelbie, and Kelly have. But going through her insta is kinda chilling because she's just lowkey enough that I'm guessing her doctors trust that she's not faking.

She claims to have developed MS at the age of 14, so she's absolutely a cow, and has that same trend of spamming the hashtags with every single illness she claims to have. Pic related.

Oh– the "spinal tumors" she has are spinal arachnoid cysts, which according to senior Google, "Many spinal arachnoid cysts cause no symptoms at all. However, if the cyst is large enough, it can compress the spinal cord and surrounding nerves. In these cases, patients may experience pain, weakness, or numbness in the back, arms, or legs."

Man, who fucking knows. I think they're throwing scary sounding treatments at what is essentially a connective tissue disease that won't respond to a stem cell transplant like other connective tissue diseases do. EDS isn't because your autoimmune system is attacking the connective tissues. They're just fucked up for other reasons.

Other connective tissue diseases, like scleroderma, are because the autoimmune system is attacking your healthy connective tissues. Which I guess is why a stem cell transplant MIGHT work in resetting the fucked up autoimmune response. I'm guessing the EDS munchies are stupidly equating EDS with other connective tissue diseases.

Having Munchausen is just not worth it. Do you want to be escorted out of the hospital by security while all the nurses, doctors, and mental health professionals look at you? I don’t know about you but I’d look like a complete fool. For what? Just some medical attention which double your odds at getting caught.

You better be a damn good liar. Inconsistency only increases your paranoia at getting caught. So what if you got all the terminology in the world and research? That’s not enough to save your sorry ass when you finally find the hospital that will catch you while you make a fool out of yourself. It won’t be long if you want to hit other towns.

How long do you have to wait? You better be patient in that waiting room. At any time the doctor and security will rush you and you’d better be ready to lie once again and explain yourself once again to save your sorry ass. And if you make it far enough it’s more waiting for beds to clear. It can be up to six hours and up than you could end up getting transferred and wait some more.

How are you going to get medical attention now? There’s not much really when you’re trying to get in there besides your lying and staff has to input stuff in computers and have meetings. They don’t have time to test you. There are more important things to tend to than some patient that really isn’t priority. That’s not medical attention. Nurses will do their thing as always but there
are nurses everywhere what makes them so special in a hospital?

The groups are common sense and you don’t need a degree or background experience to teach it.
You better figure this whole medical attention out.

There are better ways but even its short lived because you will never simulate a mental illness or physical problem that will come close to anyone that would give you enough medical attention to make you feel like it’s worth it.

It’s no simulation when everyone has to rush in and give you finally medical attention. This is called a hoax. That means you went too far. People will know right off the bat because you will never get it right when you’re arrested and have to go through the justice system. You will get more attention in jail. But how are you going to go hospital hopping now?

In general, yes.

There are some exceptions, e.g. fentanyl doesn't do shit against neuropathic pain (methadone is the only opioid that works for neuropathic pain because of its effect on NMDA receptors) or pain from a conversion disorder. But for any legitimate pain that is not fixed by a decent dose of fentanyl, it's unlikely that there's any other way to fix it short of something brutal and ill-advised, such as epidurals, nerve root blockades with lidocaine, conotoxins like ziconotide administered intrathecally, and so on. Fentanyl is also not the strongest of the opioids - it is the most potent by mass, but an equivalent dosis of diamorphine (heroin), which is only permitted in terminal palliative care, is much more euphoric and has a stronger effect on pain (equianalgesic doses are actually calculated based on acting on the same number of receptors - an equianalgesic dose guarantees no withdrawals but the pain killing effect of one drug at the equianalgetic dose with the other might be stronger, significantly so in fact!).

Shows of her port every tuesday.
Gets magnesium iv for her migraines and trigeminal neuralgia and has a port for this.
Suddenly shows symptoms of MCAD after people asked if she has it.
Films herself while applying some creme on her wrist(there were some pimples/rash).
And suddenly she experiences throat swelling/tightness.
Makes photos every time she has red cheeks or a rash.

Real reason why she got rid of Beau? Beau kept peeing on her bed and he refused to obey. They got rid of the 2nd dog, because the dog prefered her mum.
She's on disability for her RA, TN and fibro and claims that she can't work at all. So how can a person like this look after a dog?

Tru. But I have a feeling you're a lurkcow yourself, as your weird ellipsis patterns are similar to >>352709

On a cow related note, Courtney is a fucking barrel of laughs, pic related. Yes, Courtney, "a connective tissue disease" is, in fact, a diagnosis, not that I want to give you any validation. I think she wants her rheumatologist to amp it up and give her the mixed connective tissue disease diagnosis she's jonesing for. She's seeming to get everything from the doc aside for the actual words, which is what she's craving. Plaquenil is generally one of the safest drugs to give to someone with UCTD/MCTD that have symptoms on the lower end of the spectrum, as it's not nearly as toxic as other anti-malarials that are traditionally used. Because that shit will make your liver have a very bad time. I'm guessing she wants some hard core corticosteroids, which are like if Satan came up from hell to whisper in your ear every moment of the day.

Also her whole "raynauds" thing is hilarious. Raynauds is more or less harmless, unless you have the ulcerating variety, in which case you would be more worried about the dying flesh at the end of your digits, rather than sticking it on your profile to get the sweet spoonie points. You can even have Raynauds all by itself without any other condition, so it's possible that she may never get a more definitive condition or a more definite diagnosis.

Long-time lurker, first-time poster. Was led to lolcow after Joysus and the Spergleberries rubbed me the wrong way weeks ago, and just discovered this thread last week, and I probably shouldn't have been surprised by how widespread this particular type of attention-seeking is. I suppose we all know a couple.


(The real show happens on Facebook, and possibly on Instagram but I am unable to follow and it's completely private.)

Meet my personal favorite munchie-cow. This lovely lady has been imagining illnesses for years in (relative) privacy before she took to the internet in an attempt to literally be Dina Niels (a young woman with RA who refused to give up being a triathlete over it). I've been following her for years under a previous alias, and it's amusing to watch her revise her own personal history to prove that she has always had [trendy disease du jour] undiagnosed and now is permanently damaged because of it. She actually claimed several other things in the past before deciding to stick with first celiac disease, then various types of arthritis, and so on, then did some doctor shopping to get the diagnoses she wanted despite inconclusive tests. Makes a big deal about how she's "literally one in a billion" because of her sooper speschul extra-rare youneeek subset of said arthritis. (Her blog really illustrated that, but seems to be down indefinitely. She has a twenty-year-old angelfire page that is still accessible, so I didn't even think to try to back it up.) At this point she's been doing it so long I always wonder whether the latest symptom is imaginary, psychosomatic, or if she's having real side effects from the powerful drugs she's taking for diseases she doesn't have.

She has recently started posting again after a leave of absence, so may be one to watch.

Some examples of her bonkers:

Her celiac is the literal worst celiac there is. I have on at least one occasion seen her refer to it as "end stage." End stage celiac disease. Went off on someone for implying their anaphylaxis was in any way as serious as her end stage celiac disease for which she was having seizures on a thread elsewhere too long ago for me to find. (She has never had a seizure to my knowledge, and certainly hadn't then.)

She has more rare diseases than anyone! Spoiler, afaik, she actually does have one of these things. If I remember correctly, it's a common type of cyst that is usually found by accident and doesn't actually do anything besides show up in radiology. It's the visible proof you can point to that she's always wanted, and I think they day they found it was like a second Christmas to her. She may have recently upgraded it to an adenoma, but that may just be a new additional thing she claims to have. Who can keep up? I also suspect she has a real running injury that she just won't let heal properly. She took up running the minute she was able to get a diagnosis of arthritis, because they told her not to, and immediately started training really hard. She freely admits this.

I am the most inspirational! And the most humble! (This one might be just a little BEC, sorry.)

This is just an example of the infrequent posts that give a sense that she always tests negative or inconclusive for the disorders she claims to have. After reading back through two years on her main post looking for two other posts in particular that made her look even more suspect, I'm settling on this one and quitting because now I am bored.

Of note: This spoon-muncher at least makes a token effort to "raise awareness" and has raised small amounts of money for her various illnesses, and to my knowledge has not abused gofundme. The former is most likely just virtue-signalling + SEE HOW SICK I AM YOUGUISE and the latter is probably only because she managed to marry rich, but I'll give her credit anyway.

However, also of note is that she spent the last decade telling everyone her (totally normal child who eats normal food) is borderline for celiac, has eosinophilic esophagitis, and has an insensitivity to sugar. She's mentioned at least the former two on her facebook page, though I think I only caught her saying "disaccarride intolerance" one time elsewhere, and may have decided to not run with that one.

Tbh, she often comes off as more of a gigantic hypochondriac half the time than an actual munchie. I've been debating with myself for years over which it might be. Can it be both?

I apologize that I am not able to post screens atm. I was debating whether to mention her at all because her following isn't even that huge and she periodically fucks off for weeks at a time before remembering her sympathy machine at all, but hey, it's Saturday. If anyone else finds her as irritating as amusing as I do and has the time, feel free to fix this issue for me.

P.S: Also talks about having Raynaud's phenomenon (without ever showing proof) like it's a big effing deal. And likes being photographed in Vog masks and while self-injecting drugs.

Err, speaking from that corner (with the difference that rather than whiling away my days at home feeling sorry for myself, I was actively dying): if you have an illness that can't be figured out, you should be aiming for palliative treatment. That's the difference between actual sick people and spoonies. Spoonies want a diagnosis they can flash on instagram, and want one that is currently trendy (used to be mito… what happened to that? It's EDS and MCAD and *CTD and CRPS now…), not treatment for the symptoms they have. It's not uncommon for the cause of a person's illness not to be identified for months, but in the meantime, they can get treatment for what bothers them. Which most spoonies get: pain relief etc. Honey, your beloved spoonies and yourself don't suffer from magical conditions. You suffer mostly from trivial physical illnesses compounded by a histrionic psychopathology. For this, you do what histrionics do best and make everyone's life hell: doctors, your family, your loved ones, your spouse, other genuinely sick people. All of you need to take a long hard look at yourself and think about what's broken in your lives so that you seek attention at the expense of others, and then try to get treatment for that. With a lot of DBT, there's a chance you may start having normal human relationships rather than the abusive relationships in which you suck people emotionally dry and ragged with your constant drama. Maybe then people will actually love you rather than be chained to you by the sudden acute exacerbations of your nonexistent illnesses every time they try to break free.

Harsh, but true.

In her case she wasn't continuing to do endurance sports; she took them up AFTER getting the diagnosis she wanted BECAUSE they told her not to. She decided one day she wanted to be Dina Neils, and took the necessary steps, I guess.

Also, she has two different kinds of arthritis and *CTD. That does not exist. You either have arthritis or UCTD/MCTD. You literally can't have both.

But wait, there's more! She claims to have EDS and dysautonomia, too! Now, if you don't know shit about medicine, that makes sense. Autoimmune diseases do happen in bunches and having one predisposes you to having another. However, EDS is not an autoimmune disease, it's a congenital deficiency of collagen synthesis/folding. The chances of having one set of inflammatory rare diseases and another set of congenital joint diseases is fairly low, so the two co-occurring are what I will now term Anonfag's Second Sign: a person diagnosed with a genetic joint disease and an autoimmune inflammatory joint disease is almost definitely a cow.

And she's only trying to reduce the symptoms by applying cremes or swallowing medicine instead of changing her diet.

What creeps me out is how otherwise healthy she looks and seems. She's not at all lethargic, she's not remotely frail, not even when she's in a hospital bed with pale lips– she looks lucid, with normal energy, has the energy even for a bit of misplaced humor by doing a normal pose for a photo.

And that range of movement, fluidity and flexibility even on bi-weekly transfusions more or less flies in the face of unexplainable blood disorder. When you're as anemic and/or hypovolemic as she claims to be, you simply can't do that kind of physical stuff.

I think someone before suggested Kelly accesses the port to drain her own blood, which I'm thinking more and more to be likely, rather than some kind of destructive process going on in her body. She would have way more constitutional symptoms.

Which makes me so mad, looking at ALL OF THAT BLOOD that is shown hooked up to her. And she does this every two weeks. My fucking god.

Statistically speaking, it's impossible to really estimate what percentage of munchies are female and what percentage of munchies are male because they jump ship and refuse treatment for being a munchie. Makes it a lot harder to estimate actual prevalence rates and how effective treatment is, so the disorders are often studied as case studies instead of larger studies with actual subject pools. I'm sure male munchies exist, they're just hard to find and pin down. Especially online for some reason. Not sure why MBI seems especially popular among women.

That's by definition not MBI but regular old Munchausen's. MBI is specific to the internet and various social media platforms like Instagram.

I'm gonna collect bathroom beads, and every time I take a crap I'm gonna put a brown bead on a string and post it for the world to see! This to me is munchy competing. I bet they count them to see who has the most. I get that this could be helpful for a kid or an actually sick person. Honestly Kelly… Blech. This is like proof that she likes being sick… And wants the world to know! Lol to her commercial!!! I bet donors do so wonder where their blood goes, and fortunately for Kelly they never find out! I've been "following" her for agessss! And her volunteer work. It makes me sick. Haha she calls it "giving back!" I'm checking constantly for those short Windows of time where her profile is public!

Noted; she's still a moron. (You'll have to forgive my initial skepticism, most munchies like to call mundane conditions by obscure or abstruse medical terms.)

Emma also exhibits quite a bit of institutionalization. She claims to crave what's the the IV drips she would get from the private clinic; whether it's the contents or simply having an IV line is left ambiguous, but I have a feeling she really like the attention of getting privatized care for Lyme and mono.

Kelly is clearly in her mid 30s. I am properly laughing at those who think she's in her 20s. She has a mature face but even without that, she's not young,

No. 353452


There's an extremely revealing aspect to this that Kelly might have ignored. she might just have given the solution to her own mystery.

You see, there are basically two kinds of anemia - one where you lose blood (hypovolemic anemia) and one where you just don't have the cells you need to keep you going (such as aplastic or hemolytic anemias). Now, aplastic anemia simply means you don't produce enough to keep up with the natural death rate of blood cells. Hemolytic anemia means something is attacking your red blood cells and breaking them into little pieces. Both of these are slow gradual processes - it takes at least the lifespan of RBCs (6 days give or take) to have a noticeable effect.

Now, as your blood counts start to slowly go down, you start to experience tingling and numbness. That's because your body is no longer adequately supplied with oxygen. Your muscles become weak and feel like they're on fire.

But if you simply suddenly suck a shitload of blood out of your port and replace it with fluids (or not) then go and have a transfusion (if she had the transfusions without sucking out the blood, she would have iron overload and get seriously sick, also seriously tan!), you don't necessarily experience these symptoms long enough to be aware of them. Which means that if these symptoms are new enough to Kelly to make her scared about having a stroke, she probably does not have a long slow onset anemia. Which proves the Farmer's Hypothesis of her using her port to bleed herself.

What a fucking selfish trainwreck. One lie piled on top of another, and for what? Because cutting didn't get her enough attention and having a mysterious disease where your blood disappears without a trace (and I do mean that… most anemias leave some evidence - hemolytic anemias can be detected by looking for the waste products of hemolysis, aplastic anemias can be detected by looking at immature cells and reticulocytes in the bloodstream as well as bone marrow biopsies which she has had, as far as I'm aware) is so much more exciting.

There's a tiny part of me that feels sorry for her - she could have a much better life if only she got help and fixed her evidently long standing and complex psychiatric issues. She is still young and she can still have a life and she can do so without having to hurt herself. At the same time, I understand that she fears that because of the blood she has used up that could have been needed for someone else, she would be judged. That's between her and her shrink, I just hope she gets the help she needs because this is not good for anyone,

>it takes at least the lifespan of RBCs (6 days give or take) to have a noticeable effect.

No. Red blood cell lifespan is ~115 days anon. RBC maturation via erythropoiesis takes ~6. Lern moar.

>You see, there are basically two kinds of anemia - one where you lose blood (hypovolemic anemia) and one where you just don't have the cells you need to keep you going

No. There are more than 2 kinds of anemia; the most common of which you have neglected altogether (deficiency-related malformations anyone?).

>Now, as your blood counts start to slowly go down, you start to experience tingling and numbness. That's because your body is no longer adequately supplied with oxygen. Your muscles become weak and feel like they're on fire.

>you don't necessarily experience these symptoms long enough to be aware of them. Which means that if these symptoms are new enough to Kelly to make her scared about having a stroke, she probably does not have a long slow onset anemia.
The fuck? I don't even know where to begin with this. These symptoms (paresthesias, etc.) are related to acute panic attack sequelae; not those typically experienced from anemia. Further, you would not have a 'grace period' between exsanguination and transfusion before symptomatic onset. Just no.

I am certainly not white knighting Kelly; I am 99% sure she is exsanguinating…but I will call out bullshit "medfagging" when I see it.

It's actually more mysterious that you CAN lift weight when you are as anaemic as you claim. Unless of course you're ok right up until you venesect yourself. Incidentally, having some time off my shift, I PubMed'd 'factitious illness' + 'venesection' and apparently it's far from rare and frequent in people with central vascular devices.

The whole thing feels a little like what people with eating disorders do. They bring weights into treatment or heavy objects to be able to exercise and burn off calories while doctors are desperately trying to get them to gain. At this point, I'm rather mystified why a hospital allows her to do this bullshit and even considered a hysterectomy (what's with that, Kelly?) before just putting her under a week of one on one in the psych ward where she belongs. For her own sake, I hope her doctors find this - there's no cows to tip anymore here and I strongly believe her medics should be informed of what she's doing before they maim her unnecessarily. I don't want any other doctors to have that on their conscience or professoinal indemnity insurance.

I don't get it. If she admits her "symptoms" might be in her head then she's headed in the right direction! She didn't try to prove any of her lies.

Honestly, given the Munchhausens suspicion, they might just be concerned that if they start treating her as the mental case she is, she will just go to another hospital. At least here they have some degree of oversight over what she's up to and can track her. The biggest problem with Munchies is how they can 'get lost' to the system.

Medfagpowerlevel: the hospital I worked at had a frequent flyer who had hypoglycaemic seizures despite there really being no good reason for that (female, middle aged, normal weight, not diabetic, etc.). Eventually it turned out that she stole some of her elderly mother's insulin and injected herself to induce hypoglycaemia and seizures. Some of these were fairly serious, to the point of her needing fairly involved neurological rehabilitation at a national specialist centre (pretty expensive and hard to get).

Eventually a nurse found insulin and insulin syringes in her bag, together with some sux that she managed to steal from a crash cart (fuck only knows how). Her doctor, plus one of the SpRs and the consultant in charge of the unit as well as a psych SpR visited her in her room and told her that she was faking and they were visibly mad with her (a justified, but still highly contraindicated, reaction to discovering factitious illness). They offered her a psych stay. She discharged herself against medical advice and was lost to our radar. A year later, she was found dead of an insulin OD. She kept doing her stunts in different areas and at one point, she overdosed - intentionally or accidentally, nobody knew. What we did know is that perhaps if the news had been broken to her more gently and less accusatorily (or even not broken to her at all, see below), she might have lived.

A great comment on this from Jeffrey Keller MD, who runs a pretty popular blog on correctional medicine, might explain the hospital's approach (in the context of nonepileptic seizures aka pseudoseizures, but the points apply overall!):

> There are three problems with these patients who are, admittedly, faking their symptoms. The first problem is that the suspicion that a patient is faking their seizure invariably engenders lots of negative emotions like anger, frustration and contempt. These can not only ruin what might otherwise have been a fine day, but more importantly, they can (and do!) get in the way of good medical practice. If you are feeling angry and contemptuous towards your patient, you are unlikely to provide very stellar care for them.

> The second problem with “fakers” is that most of the time, you simply cannot know for sure whether this particular patient really is faking or not. As we have seen, psychogenic non-epileptic seizures are not fake—no more so than a panic attack or a headache. Responding to PNDS as “fakers” will be as effective as telling the woman with the panic attack to “stop faking.” It will be ineffective and counterproductive.
> The last problem with those truly faking their seizures is this: even if you are right and the patient truly is malingering, accusing them of faking will not usually make them stop. To the contrary, malingerers who are accused of faking tend to redouble their efforts to convince you that these are real!
> Fortunately, there is one very good solution to these problems and that is to not care whether the seizure/pseudoseizure is faked or not! In the long run, whether the patient is faking or not is irrelevant. Give up the judgmental attitude. You’ll feel better and, more importantly, you will practice better medicine.

> And keep this in mind: The single worst thing that you can do as a medical provider is to assume that a patient is faking—and be wrong. If you have done this and the patient ends up having a bad outcome, you are toast. Do not take this risk with something as hard to sort out as seizures/pseudoseizures.

> Instead, remember what your overall medical goal is in these cases:

> You want the seizure-like activity to stop. You want the patient to stop having them in the future.

> Whether these are true epileptic seizures or PNES or malingering, it doesn’t matter. You want them to stop happening. And the first key to achieving this goal is to give up the labels (“Faker!”) and give up the emotion (“Jerk!”). These attitudes get in the way of achieving your goal—having the seizure-like episodes stop.

Sage for lots of medfagging.

More importantly, how did her doctors miss so much?

No. 353560


I'd be inclined to agree with you if her symptoms made medical sense. They don't. There are very few unknown mysterious disorders these days, especially in haematology. An anaemia has got to have some cause - broken/misshapen cells (would show on a smear), an autoimmune process (would show on autoantibody tests), blood loss (but where is it going? We are talking a significant quantity) or decreased production (would show on a bone marrow Bx or aspirate). There aren't any possible magical unknown diagnoses anymore that she could have. And once you exclude the impossible…

No. 353564

The blood is in her uterus. So it's blood loss, not bad blood. So they figured out the source or so they hope. Bets on her still mysteriously losing blood even after a hysterectomy? If this continues after that surgery then the doctors have got to see what's going on. It shouldn't even be questioned. If she needs blood after the supposed source is fixed, I would send her right back to her special hospital

I am pretty damn sure she is not bleeding a unit a week (a pint of blood or so, assuming unit sizes are the same in Canaduh) from her uterus without someone noticing. That's 70ml or two shots of blood a day. It's not something she wouldn't notice.

It's quite telling that her hematocrit is so incredibly low. It's almost as if she were in isovolaemic anaemia, which we see a lot in people who lost a lot of blood but did not get a transfusion (we do not routinely transfuse above a Hgb of 9).

Usually it happens because either the sphincter refuses to open (this might be due to a nervous system issue) or the muscles in the bladder wall don't exert enough pressure to squeeze out the urine (this happens in certain neuromuscular conditions and when taking drugs that relax smooth muscles, such as muscarinic antagonists and opioids).

Judging by that, they have concluded she has an anaemia that responds only to transfusions but is not of any recognized medical origin. In other words - they know there's nothing wrong with her and are now passing the buck trying to see who can/will talk her out of this nonsense.

I would not be shocked if she started to escalate some other condition, such as her fake MS (the MRI is very inconclusive… spots suggestive of demyelination happen in healthy people too!).

I worry for her. Please Kelly if you read this, please please please come clean with your docs. You are young. You can have a long and happy life with Chompy and the rest.

Well. OK, but it's still would have been really uncomfortable to have that much in. Plus the whole catheter thing. It's kinda painful and really humiliating to have a doctor look at your snatch to find a peepeehole.
But then again, maybe it's nice if you're attention starved enough. Who knows.

No. 353599

She apparently needs the attention, any attention, all the attention. All the time. Nothing is ever enough.

Last year when she had urinary retention she left the hospital because they didn't believe all her issues, and she was taught to self-cath and was catheterizing herself at home. Then just recently she had urinary retention again, and made a big deal about having to have a home nurse teach her how to self cath. Again. When she had been taught and was doing it successfully. She seemed gleefully happy about having to go through the humiliating teaching process. When she had already been taught and done it. And NO ONE called her on it. Either her followers don't pay attention, or nobody stays with her long enough to catch her repetitive issues.

Kelownanon here: I get how Kelly is able to malinger like this because I'm from there, chronically I'll, and it's probably the best area in Canada for this kind of thing.

Health care in the Shuswap/Thompson/Okanagan region, especially mental health care, is extremely lacking. Before Hillside opened up, there was really nothing unless you were an addict or 80.

The area is kind of isolated. Kelowna is really the biggest city in the area, and it has nothing. Kelly's gotta go to Vancouver or Calgary if she wants real help.

There are a good number of very talented and competent doctors in Salmon Arm and Vernon, but they lack the equipment and funds to really do anything with their talent. The whole region's system is really geared towards the elderly as it is a good place to retire.

My money is on childhood trauma. The doctor describes her as friendly but almost child-like in the 'cat collection' note. Her voice is like a child's. She never talks about her childhood.

No. 353692

Maybe her Hbg is naturally on the low side, which makes it easier to exaggerate it? It doesn't take as much draining to push it below transfusion limit if that's the case. Also it's pretty easy to drain blood without having a port, but that leaves marks that the docs surely would've seen considering how often she apparently needs transfusions.

One more point that adds to the confusion. A while back she was literally confined to her bed for2 days and the whole thing on camera. I'm one of those posts she wrote about her blood tests during that time and it was. Consistently getting lower. Also. I am not sure the hospital is going to put all that time and tests if they thought she was falsifying.. All I'm trying to say, is that there is more evidence of her health being genuine than not. So she's annoying and dumb ballet poses etc. But that is petty. I'm a bit in her defence just because of actual facts. And don't think that just because I'm defending her that I am her.

I noticed she took a screenshot of one of the posts in her typing style that Admin pointed out as coming from Kelowna and posted it on her Facebook. This makes me think that she hasn't actually gone to the cops, and that this is yet another one of her ploys for sympathy that is ultimately going to backfire once her supporters realize that she's doing it all herself. She also wrote on her Facebook, in response to someone asking whether or not the site was taken down, "With suicide there is 0 tolerance". There were no mentions of suicide, though, except for a very inappropriate dig at Kadee Konstantino, who accidentally overdosed and did not actually commit suicide.

I don't know about you, but to me it looks like Kelly's been cyberbullying other people and pretending that she's being cyberbullied. I hope it isn't true, but the evidence is pretty compelling. Of course, that'll probably be up to the police to decide.

It's funny that one of the posts from her area ( >>353184 ) also mentions that she's been bullshitting the police. If they trace this back to her phone or computer (which the police can absolutely do if admin gives them the IP address that these were posted with), not only will they probably charge her for cyberbullying, but they'll also charge her for filing a false report- maybe even two. And if she's defrauded charities or the church? She's got fraud charges on top of that.

I'm sure the cops will also be aware that before she was Kelly Ronahan, she went by Kelly Petrovich, which is also public domain since that name is linked to her current Facebook account, as well as mentioned as image credit in this news article:

Of course, this is just speculation, and I'm sure her followers and the cops will be able to deduce the truth.

I think Petrovich is her real last name. Googling [[REMOVED]] Petrovich got

me this: [[REMOVED]]

if you look at the picture, it's a carbon copy of Kelly since they're twins.(no personal info on family members)

>Implying Kadee killed herself

Kelly, you are just digging yourself further down into this hole. You need to quit before you end up damaging your reputation beyond repair. I'm serious. This is just a gossip site. We're discussing and speculating on things that you have made public. None of us want to ruin anyone else's life. I think you want us to want to harm you, but we don't.

Why are you actively sabotaging yourself? We know you're self posting. Your friends know you're self posting. The RCMP knows you're self posting. What is the goal here? I know you want attention, but are criminal charges and possible jail really the kind of attention you want?

Kelly also follows those people that the posts in here are about. I just looked. If that's the truth, that she has been posting in here, wow.

I still don't understand how the police would ever get involved in this, as mentioned before, this is all public domain?

Further googling [[REMOVED]] Petrovich (sorry [[REMOVED]], you don't deserve to be dragged along your crazy sister's train wreck) reveals an old MySpace page, which confirms the birth date to be '82.

This thread is fucking cancer level retarded now. Can't wait for the police to show up at my house so I can say "I have the right to free speech and my opinion about things publicly posted online" and to show them that you're posting in here too, but enjoy wasting resources for us. Anyway, I'm out. This fuckjob was cute for a giggle, but now it's full on psycho. I'll leave this image for the WKers and Kelly who's probably lurking hardcore.

Oh and here's a good example of another website that came under fire and is still running: http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/hamilton/news/the-dirty-on-truth-freedom-of-speech-and-online-shaming-1.3063308

Careful, don't mention cancer or Kelly will think she has it now.
