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.

No. 457372

GOD i wanna strangle them. maybe they think they're rare enough that they won't affect actual sick people, but apparently they're common enough that many doctors will ask legitimately sick people with unknown afflictions if they might be munchies and turn them away before exhausting all the options. yet somehow actual munchies are getting all the treatment they ask for, i guess because they're brats? they're costing people with sometimes FATAL afflictions precious time and resources because there's so many of them that many ER doctors will roll their eyes at any patient that doesn't know their diagnosis front to back. Maybe this is the kind of mental illness that takes over people's willpower, but if it's one of those syndromes that's really just a behavior pattern of fucking assholes then they have blood on their hands as far as I'm concerned.

No. 457414

All these people are commenting on her IG saying they’ve had C-diff like 5+ times…doesn’t that seem a little, I don’t know, farfetched? C-diff is only transferred through contact of infected feces to an open orifice (such as the mouth). How are all these dang munchies getting c-diff so often?

No. 457418

Depending on where they live then I'd suggest because lots of the USA doesn't have proper sewage systems BUT if they also have good health insurance then they probably live in a neighbourhood that does have decent sewage management.

No. 457436

I'm sure it has nothing to do with her feeding tube station being a foot away from the toilet.

No. 457446


c-diff doesn't necessarily come from direct contact with infected feces. A lot of people have c-diff bacteria in their system but never have any symptoms. If you take antibiotics you are more likely to get a c-diff infection. C-diff is fairly common in medical settings - if Aubrey has been spending a lot of time in the hospital then its likely she has come into contact with it. People with lowered immune systems are more likely to get a c-diff infection.
If munchies are getting c-diff infections often its probably a result of them spending unnecessary amounts of time in the hospital, turning to antibiotics for every little thing, or taking/doing other things that will weaken their immune systems.

No. 457448

Aubrey was on different IV abx recently. And she's been admitted three or four times in about a month time.

No. 457468

She was on vancomycin for “sepsis” that most definitely was not, if anything she had the flu like thousands of other people right now (I think 35 states are experiencing outbreaks currently). But honestly she’s looked totally healthy at least the past week or so, not like someone who was seriously ill or even malnourished at all (if anything she’s gained weight recently).

No. 457472

Now she’s got something people with CF get a lot, wonder if that’s a goal of hers. She’s obviously a fan of Mary Frey as well, she’s even been dressing like her and has a similar look (hair, glasses), complete with feeding tube, the same small bags for it, service dog, and oxygen when they’ll give it to her. She’s trying to be a cf girl but will never be since cf can’t be faked. Instead she’s munching her way into whatever gives her toys and hospital admissions. Let’s not forget she started out witj self-diagnosed Lyme, which got her a picc line and then a port, and things very quickly escalated, which is not how a real chronic illness works. You don’t magically develop symptoms as an adult unless you’re a spoonie (exception: legitimate autoimmune illnesses that can’t be faked because bloodwork).

No. 457484

And now we hear nothing about the Lyme whatsoever. In typical Jaquie/munchie fashion, she's moved on to bigger and better (read: more severe) illnesses. As soon as one gets boring, it's on to the next thing that will get me a week in the hospital

No. 457487

It’s honestly fascinating to me how they can go so quickly from one illness to the next, focusing on something more severe with the intentions of a new medical device or “tool” as they so adore to call them. How do you think they decide what to pursue as their next diagnosis?? I wonder what Aubrey would say if asked about Lyme, or Jaquie about Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome.

Not the OP but I think it that’s girl who’s super emaciated and claims it’s because of her eds/GP/chrons, I don’t remember her IG. She admits to a past eating disorder, but claims she’s recovered, but also talks about how she doesn’t want to gain weight. She’s also super demanding about her pain meds for her eds, but wants way more than anyone with eds would need. She puts absolutely no effort into maintaining a healthy weight, and blames her “illnesses” and medical care instead. Mother is a total enabler.

Guess who doesn’t want to be left out of having a crisis. Tbh, doesn’t look like an allergic reaction to me. Looks more like she rubbed her skin to make it red. Also, Benadryl doesn’t immediately fix mcas rashes, they stick around for a while.

No. 457741

Please explain how a medical condition such as MCAS is not the same simply because it’s comorbid to something else?

No. 457768

I don’t know the exact science behind it,but the mcas found in people with the eds/pots/mcas combo is suspected to be more related to autonomic dysfunction than a problem with the immune system like stand alone mcas or mastocytosis. I don’t know all the details (not a doctor), but there’s a slight difference in how the reactions go. And people with eds and mcas don’t have the same lab results as people with stand alone mcas, but have the same symptoms. Like everything related to eds, it’s still being researched apparently.

No. 457772

It also might be that the mcas associated with eds and pots is an entirely separate mast cell disease not yet identified.

No. 457794

MCAS can be primary, secondary or idiopathic. In the case of comorbid conditions it would likely be considered secondary.
More info:
Frieri M (2015). "Mast Cell Activation Syndrome". Clin Rev Allergy Immunol. doi:10.1007/s12016-015-8487-6. PMID 25944644. Table 1
Classification of diseases associated with mast cell activation from Akin et al. [14]
1. Primary
a. Anaphylaxis with an associated clonal mast cell disorder
b. Monoclonal mast cell activation syndrome (MMAS), see text for explanation
2. Secondary
a. Allergic disorders
b. Mast cell activation associated with chronic inflammatory or neoplastic disorders
c. Physical urticarias (requires a primary stimulation)
d. Chronic autoimmune urticaria
3. Idiopathic (When mast cell degranulation has been documented; may be either primary or secondary. Note also that angioedema may be associated with hereditary or acquired angioedema where it may be mast cell independent and result from kinin generation)
a. Anaphylaxis
b. Angioedema
c. Urticaria
d. Mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS)…
Recurrent idiopathic anaphylaxis presents with allergic signs and symptoms—hives and angioedema which is a distinguishing feature—eliminates identifiable allergic etiologies, considers mastocytosis and carcinoid syndrome, and is treated with H1 and H2 antihistamines, epinephrine, and steroids [21, 22].

No. 457795

She’s been given all the tools to get better, but has chosen not to. She’s also awful to medical professionals, and won’t admit that she’s still stuck in her eating disorder (and will be horrible to anyone who suggests it). I don’t feel bad for her at all, there are lots of people who wish they could have the treatments she gets and refuses to take advantage of/work with at all.

No. 457798

Yes it is sad, she doesn't seem milky. But genuinely ill and documenting her time in hospital and struggles etc; as opposed to showing off her illness and being proana.

No. 457802

Yes, it’s considered secondary. There is a possibility that it’s its own type of mast cell disease connected to eds and autonomic dysfunction that is being looked into. What’s interesting is that munchies always have mcas that has the exact same symptoms as the generic list anyone can find on the internet, very unspecific to them (“I react to everything”), and aren’t on any of the standard treatments except going to the er more than reasonable and the favorite iv Benadryl (that gives you a buzz).

No. 457803

You don't seem to fathom that EDs are extremely hard to overcome and that it affects your mindset. She may know she needs to get better but not feel comfortable changing her routines and habits that are hard to break. The fear of her body changing is probably making things hard for her too. Some anas dont even want to get better because their illness makes them think skinny is the only way to be.

No. 457806

Except all the posing to show off her low weight and general bratiness. There’s no reason for her to be at that low of a weight unless she’s choosing to. She’s definitely sick, but her eating disorder is what’s killing her.

No. 457807

I get that, but there’s no accountability at all, combined with terrible treatment of people around her, and the fact that she clearly loves the attention of being physically ill.

No. 457813

So what makes her any different from Chloe, Aubrey, and Jaquie? Other than her low weight, they’re all pretty similar. She’ had a gofuckme as well, and claims to be “recovered”.

No. 457874

I see a lot of these kind of pictures of people with a flushed face saying they have a "mast cell reaction." Is this a thing for MCAS? I assume it's more than just being flushed, because getting flushed all of a sudden is not uncommon. I could make at least five pictures every week of myself with a very flushed face, that's not related to anything medical. It's just called being tired.

O wow. She was pretty. I agree it's painful to look at her now. I looked at her Instagram and as another anon said. it's a mixture of hospital/sick pictures and of candy and cookies. Yet she is on TPN and can't eat? I don't really follow her and also didn't really read the posts, but it seems like she eats a lot of candy? Does anyone follow her? Does she chew and spit? Or can she somehow eat candy but not soup, bread and crackers? I don't know, but even looking at her makes me sad. She also seems to be very happy that she has found doctors who do not think it is 'just' an eating disorder. Erm.. there is no such thing as 'just' an eating disorder. Eating disorders are more deadly than any mental condition in the book. More people die from eating disorders than from gastroparesis.

In general, it seems to be mostly people who are not that skinny who tend to use GP to cover up their eating disorder. I always assumed it was because a physical condition gains more symphathy than a psychological one, unless you are clearly severely anorexic and starving. But she is. If she would admit she still struggles with an eating disorder (and maybe/probably with GI problems as well, which makes it even more complicated) she would get pretty much the same amounts of ass pats just because of how extremely sick she looks.

Do we have screenshots of her saying she doesn't want to gain weight?

Sorry if I'm late to the party but anyone else notice this comment on Aubrey's vlog?

"I actually diagnosed myself initially and then got it confirmed by an expert in London."

And I didn't think it was that hard to find a specialist? Don't you just need to see a geneticist first to rule out the other kinds of EDS?

No. 458260

Tilt table will show false negative if the person is in remission, but then they obviously don't need any treatment. Test should only be done when you're experiencing severe symptoms to get an idea of why they're happening.

What are the theories anyway as to why this type of munchie-ing is almost exclusive to white girls? There's plenty theories about why it affects mainly women, but what about the ethnic differences? I know FII is by default very difficult to research as there's limited data since so few people will admit to it. That's mainly true for adults though, maybe there's data for children and teens? I wonder if the ethnic difference is unique to the US (and other countries that are predominantly white but also have a large black comminity) and whether that difference is still there when you control for socio-economic status and/or things like whether someone has health insurance or not. I get the impression most munchies that we discuss are either relatively affluent or come from a background that is. I could be wrong though.

Mum has a history of hoping her kids will 'fail' a test.

You know.. I get being sick and wanting to know the cause of it. So yeah, sometimes that means you hope the tests will show something. Just because that means you can get treated and can go on. Being sick is no fun, and being sick without knowing what's wrong is even worse.

But there's a difference between hoping a test will show a treatable condition and a) hoping to 'fail' a specific test; b) broadcasting your 'secret hope' on the internet and c) doing that for someone other than yourself.

How about: "whatever the tests show, we hope the results will lead to the right kind of treatment". Or: "we don't care what is says, as long as it'll help the doctors to help her." Or: "we hope ultimately the tests will show a condition that's either self-limiting or easy to treat"? Something like that may mean the same thing, but it doesn't sound as creepy.

She is one scary mum.

I have hEDS, and skin reactions to adhesives are one of the mildest of my symptoms. She's a munchie, so if she'd had anything vaguely near a subluxed joint or prolapse she'd have been straight to the ER demanding saline or dilaudid.

Hi, original poster here! She’s my “favorite” munchie in a sense because it seems like she’ll talk about something I’m dealing with/have dealt with and I’m just like…that’s not that serious.
She is pretty heavy, tbh. She’s at least 200 pounds at five foot something so I wasn’t sure if maybe she could have lost the weight in a week because of obesity. I would love to hear what her doctors say about her weight.
It just really pisses me off that there are so many people who are horrifically ill- like actually sick- that can’t get the kind of medical care she wastes. She goes to Mass Gen, one of the best hospitals in the country, because oh my god she threw up a few times?
Honestly, if she’d exercise and eat right, she’d feel a whole hell of a lot better but god forbid that happens.

No. 458900

20% education? You must be a very generous person. To be honest though, I don't see it. The only part that could be considered educating is the fact that she tells and repeats what a service animal is under the ADA. And the difference between an SD and an ESA. That's more like 2%. I don't know if it should be considered educating though if she herself abuses the huge loophole that is the ADA.

O, and you forgot bitching, but you probably meant to cover that in the shouting at people?

I'd propose:
2% educating
30% lying at the floor in public
10% dangerous driving
10% very boring shopping clips
8% "bad parenting caught on tape"
10% complaining about symptoms, doctors or other more general medical talk
30% seeking out or staging conflicts surrounding her SD so she can bitch about it.

I will gladly stand corrected if someone has a better estimate, though.

I was looking at that reaction and then noticed the kind of bandaid she was using. It looked like a generic beige one. I literally said to myself "have to remember that; if she'll claim EDS in the near future, that will prove her skin isn't as fragile".
Most EDSers I know will use either band aids for sensitive skin (the white ones) OR not use them alltogether and use e.g. self-adherent wrap with some gauze that doesn't stick to the skin or some other special-order or home-made alternative.

Of course there are EDSers who can use band aids, especially if it doesn't stay on the skin for too long. But if she is going to claim fragile skin as a symptom of EDS, her choice of band aids is a bit odd to me.

Who else predicted long ago that Aubrey would try to claim EDS? She stretches almost religiously and - even more odd - does it on camera (and while she is in hospital) so everyone can see she is flexible. (Not EDS-flexible, imo. But I've seen some slight hypermobility in her fingers in some postures when she supports her neck.) I just KNEW this was coming. EDS can be her ticket out of medical obscurity with her controversial 'chronic Lyme' diagnosis. Her story doesn't add up though. She was standing on one leg while stretching her other leg against her IV pole just yesterday (in yesterdays vlog, to be precise). That requires quite a lot of stability and muscle control. If she would have EDS (which she doesn't) she would have to be pretty much asymptomatic. And right now she claims her POTS and GP are caused by her chronic Lyme. IF she gets a diagnosis of EDS, would they then be caused by her lax connective tissue? Or would she do a Chloe and claim that Lyme changed her genetic make-up and caused EDS?

Argh. I wish these munchies would get off the EDS train already. It's getting tiresome. The diagnosis doesn't mean a thing anymore. The more that diagnosis is given to people who just happen to have some hypermobile joints (just like about 10-30% of the female population, depending on ethnic background), the more doctors will think that (h)EDS is "just being hypermobile".

No. 458918

What is "close call to knee surgery"? That she maybe needed surgery? If she thinks it's worth to reminiscence on "maybes" she could just go ahead and mention/tag every possible differential diagnosis a doctor ever mentioned or things she was tested for to rule out as something she "almost" had.

Munchie in the wild! From a Facebook thread, where a woman was talking about getting into doing full makeup to get color back into her face, after dealing with cancer for years. This chick showed up about halfway down.

'I'm so glad u posted ur comment! I'm 31 but look much older with wrinkles I shouldn't have until I'm waaay older Because of all the things Ive been through health wise wise my MANY autoimmune diseases, mainly right now dealing with mixed connective tissue disease (which is a overlapping of all the hard hitters like lupus, scleroderma,ECT feels like MS) plus I have adrenal insufficiency,and a ton of GI problems that first started with Celiac disease,but after many complicated tests(still ongoing)I've been diagnosed with chronic gastritis, psuedo obstruction, gastroperisis,and more but my point is putting on makeup makes me feel better about myself,like me again,and most people say but u don't look sick! Which is a compliment,both good and bad cuz they don't believe when I say I'm too sick to do things. But anyway you're NEVER too old to put on makeup like this.
I actually was going to be starting my own youtube channel doing makeup tutorials and lifestyle channel but I don't have the equipment or can afford the equipment to start it.
My Drs suggested it to me last year when I was about to turn 30 as a way to keep my mind off my chronic PAIN (I'm also in a wheelchair now from once being a dancer)but I feel weird starting a go fund me page asking for help,so I haven't gotten to do it.but another reason why I was going to start it was because I had a dream of being a cosmetologist/hair stylist my entire life! From kindergarten fashion show I asked my mom if I could go as a nail lady but we couldn't figure out how so I went as a mommy,) another dream I'll never get to full fill,) so since I'm to sick to have my dream job because I can't hold down a real job, youtube was going to be my way to full fill it ?but u have to have all this equipment and a laptop which I also don't have,to do it. ANYWAY you keep being u cuz I know life is short ( ive almost died. 5times septic,honey I could write a book but wouldn't want to rehash it!)and if doing ur makeup like a pro makes u happy, keep it up!

After watching several of her old videos, I find her reliance on her non munchie friend disturbing. Like, yeah she’s your friend but she can’t be your whole life.

No. 459127


Her dependance on the friend has always seemed a bit odd. I believe the unicorn.spoonie IG is either almost completely run by Kat. The friend's personal IG doesn't use illness/disability hashtags - and while she refers to Kat as a best friend there is another girl who she also refers to as a best friend and posts pictures of more often especially recently.
I think Kat is pretty jealous of the friend. I believe they met at a camp for the blind/visually impaired. Her friend has a undisputed and uncommon medical issue and also seems to have good family support. Kat doesn't have great family support and I think is envious of the support that her friend gets. She seems to be another one who is hoping that if she was just sicker then her family might pay more attention to her. Unfortunately she seems rather annoying and demanding/entitled which probably doesn't make her easy to be around.
It is as if Kat secretly hopes she could be her friend - the friend likely has to have frequent biopsies/cyst removals. Kat probably convinced one doctor to biopsy a mole and is now declaring she had MOHS surgery. Its just always weird that she hashtags the friends illnesses when the friend doesn't usually do it

EDSers with hypermobility symptoms are told to never, ever stretch. She would have dislocations from the kinds of stretches she does, or at least ligament damage which is extremely painful.

Karolyn claims EDS, but doesn't say which kind and PTSD. Based on her website, #HospitalGlam appears to be some kind of attempt at a social movement and an attempt to make fun of the fashion industry (always something I can get behind, ha), but she seems a bit misguided.

I don't see any photos that appear to be in an ER. She claims to be an artist, so I'm guessing she has a friend who has access helping her.

She doesn't complain in her posts but writes things that advocate for healthcare, women, etc. She's more of an advocate than any of the usual "advocates" mentioned around here.

I'd much rather see these than yet another photo of a picc line or a video about a near-death heart rate a la Amy Nicole, whose "heart almost killed her" last week.

The rest of this is Karolyn's, not mine. She writes:

karolynprg#HospitalGlam examines the role image plays in our medical treatment. "Glam" references the poses and their similarity to fashion photography, the fact that chronic illness does not fit the traditional visual conception of sickness, and that we live in a place where healthcare is a luxury good. #hospitalglam is political.

what are your thoughts on docs who specialize in pots, eds, mcas, and gp? does it seem to you they'll diagnose anyone for the money and expensive treatments?

I have a friend on facebook who was diagnosed with the trifecta back in september, immediately started cromolyn, beta blockers, couple other expensive meds. She's gotten a myriad of testing done, most recently an upright mri that showed 4 mm chiari. I asked what her neuro thought about this, only to find out she hasn't seen neuro at all. Her primary (as she calls it) diagnosed her with all this. The doctor is an ND and this girl sees her once a week. This to me seems like a total money grab for the doctor. She's convinced this girl she's disabled (she's applying for a service dog), that she needs crutches to walk (I saw her walk across stage at graduation, she's good), and that she needs expensive meds like cromolyn (she's gotten a rash maybe once, but hey, eds and pots? must have mcas)

did I mention she diagnosed classical EDS without genetic testing? Yep. I'm not gonna post screenshots for privacy reasons (she only posts on her personal fb, no insta) but this enrages me. This girl might actually be sick but she is abusing the system to get the best treatment for something that might not even help.

Thats my issue with Dom - she seems to think that more patches will mean people won't distract her dog (and she seems to indicate that people looking at the dog is a distraction) but if you cover a dog in patches people will have to spend longer reading them. As a member of the general public a patch that says service/working dog and do not pet/distract is more than enough to get the message across to me.

Mercifully this stuff doesn't really happen in the uk because w e have the NHS so no unnecessary treatments or tests, and no bungs for the doctor who prescribes them.

The downside is that getting a genuine EDS diagnosis can take years thanks to waiting lists or maybe just lack of knowledgable specialists in someone's clinical region.

A primary doctor can't specialize… by definition?

They are less likely to give a false diagnosis in my opinion, but you can always find a doctor who will give you that dx. I wouldn't call that doctor, or a primary physician, a specialist.

in my uneducated opinion, POTS can be diagnosed by a primary. It's not hard to lay a patient down, take pulse, then stand and take pulse over 10 minutes. And the treatment is basically water and salt, so nothing more usually needed.

I think she's one of the cows who's been hit by the saline shortage because hers isn't totally medically necessary (she can drink water,eat salt). I think I remember a whining post from her? Maybe this is a ploy to prove how much she needs her salt water intravenously.

No. 460292

There’s also tests for breathing (how it affects heart rate I think), sweating, and a few other things that differentiate between PoTS and simply being orthostatic (which can happen for a number of reasons in totally healthy people, including very simple dehydration]. It’s not as simple as the tilt table test or sitting to standing heart rate and blood pressure. Of course that’s probably why there are so many cows claiming pots, because they haven’t had the full testing by an actual specialist.

Aubrey’s small bowel barium test was normal, so why can’t she tolerate her feeds? Hmm……

No. 460560

I know nothing about gastric stim surgery (just enough to refuse to call it a pacemaker - next we'll be calling a spinal stimulator for nerve pain a 'pain/nerve pacemaker'). But I assume since it's abdominal surgery that it's not done as an out-patient thing regardless, or am I wrong about that?

I don't understand why doctors do this kind of surgeries on patients with eating disorders. I'm not a doctor, but if I was, I'd have them tested in and out to make VERY sure any delay in gastric transit isn't caused by ED behaviors. Even past behaviors, as they tend to resolve on it's own through refeeding.

Someone needs to find a way to do some sort of blind challenge on this patients. Like have a nasal tube with both jejunal and gastric ports and gradually switch from J to G feeds without them knowing to see if that solves the problem. Or at leat without them knowing how fast it will occur, or maybe by alternating and see if reported symptoms make any sense or not.

Patients should probably be observed 24/7 during a test like that though, so I'm not sure if that would be feasible. But I really think there's a clear need for some sort of procedure like that. If the patient gives consent, it could be done ethically. (And if the doctor makes it clear that no invasive treatment will be done without a challenge like that, patients will probably either stop asking for invasive treatment if they know they will 'fail', or consent.)

Of course, one could just start by having them observed for a week or so in either the hospital or an eating disorder clinic to do some sort of challenge with oral feeding.

I mean, even I learned during my (psych) studies about possible physical effects of eating disorders. So I assume MD's and dieticians to know about this, too.

She's planning to see some kind of hotshot motility specialist, though. I SO hope he will see through her BS.

I always tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. So I'm willing to suspend my disbelief and say that it is possible for her to have some kind of digestive problem right now. However, we know without a doubt that she didn't need her feeding tube in the first place. Who knows, maybe her current problem is even caused by her tube?

So, I have a friend who has an NG tube, who showed me this vid from Chronically.Ams. There are lots of problems with it, including her non sterile precautions (sterile water doesn't actually sterilise things). Also drainage bags which use gravity are supposed to hang below the stomach to work and hers is only shoulder height (which is why she uses the syringe to get her stomach contents out, ana much?) and hers is apparently much too thin to be effective at draining. This plus the fact she always shows a tube in a pre opened packet makes me suspect she's bought one to insert/remove at will for videos like this.

And most of all, if someone needs an NG tube, and needs to be able to reinsert it themselves, a medical professional will show them how, not a munchie cow on YouTube. I'm sure the ana chans are taking notes though.

Just adding another perspective for this:
In my hospital system, a lot of the “PCPs” that work in the clinics are often Emergency Med doctors who also work in the ER. They will often schedule tests and treat conditions that they know about since it takes awhile to get in with specialists, they have wide, but specific knowledge (even about some chronic things), and they have ordering rights within the hospital system. They will however allow the specialists to interpret the tests and give the formal diagnosis, although the patient only hears it from the “PCP” and it appears as if the diagnosis comes from the “PCP” on the medical charts.

Honestly, I feel like it makes everything easier just having to see a single doctor who consults others, but - if done wrong by the doctor / type of doctor or if the patient is manipulative - I can see that it’s problematic.

Plus, she is blatantly lying about the fact she only gets sent those NG tubes for draining by her feed company - she's said in videos that her feed company only keeps the small size ones. But funny that the one she shows that she allegedly gets from her feed company is the same as the one given to her by a friend.

No. 460807

People can be nice and not OTT and still be munchies, but there’s also the likelihood that she - or anyone who isn’t OTT - was incorrectly diagnosed. Purely hypothetically speaking, but for most non-munchies if a doctor says “you do/do not have x,” they don’t go above and beyond to prove or disprove that. They just trust that their doctor knows better than they do - something OTT munchies have an incredibly difficult time doing, since they’re all just so much smarter than the doctors.

No. 460816

Even with mild EDS suspension from any limbs would be impossible or extremely dangerous. I don't think anyone with EDS is easily able to hang from their arms (like in a pull-up position or monkey bars) without their shoulders hanging out of their sockets and you would absolutely notice something was wrong.

I have however known numerous people with EDS who were masochists. People who actually have it tend to have a much higher pain threshold than the average population so maybe that's why it's enticing.

I would say close to impossible in both situations for eds.

I'm in Service Dog groups with Aubrey and she has never posted about her dog's tasks or training. She only posts self promotion of her social media and youtube accounts. I wouldn't be surprised if her dog didn't do anything and was just an accessory. Though he seems well behaved so at least there's that. It's sad how low my standards are becoming i.e. "it's a fake service dog but at least it's not attacking people"

No. 461007

Even if it's for POTS you would want more tasks than just alert. Does he fetch emergency medications or water when she needs it? Does he pick up dropped objects so she doesn't change position too fast? Does he do literally anything to help her besides the alleged alert? A service dog can improve life quality for people with severe POTS but these munchies just want another medical device to show around that does nothing.

I know it’s probably ill-advised to discuss it here because it attracts hungry anachans, but I just noticed that MPA now has a Chronic Illness subforum. It was an interesting read. I won’t post screenshots unless it’s something anons are actually interested in discussing, but it shocked me how many people there with your typical munchie diseases admitted that they knew their eating disorder made everything worse - including ED behaviors like excessive caffeine consumption, laxative abuse, overexercise, not taking certain meds to treat their conditions because weight gain was a side effect, etc. They admit they’ve tried every treatment (up to and including port infusions) EXCEPT for actually eating properly.

I would say I wouldn't post anyone just because they post there, but IF anyone seems OTT/Munchie over there and their health complaints are the primary issue, I don't see why not. If it's just a post or two saying they have other illnesses, then no I'd post them in the Pro-Ana General.
I for one am interested in the OTT/Munch crowd especially seeing as how many of our cows OBVIOUSLY have a hx of ED and/or actively mention ED issues. Who knows, maybe we will find some of our current OTT/Munchiefags' MPA accounts! Post screenies please!

Just having a stuffed animal doesn't bother me so much. A lot of people (even adults) still have a stuffed animal they sleep with for comfort. That being said though, most people keep that to themselves and leave theirs at home. She definitely didn't need to take an overly-dramatic photo with it.

Headache so bad she can’t stand, but can take selfies and post them to IG.

None of the illnesses she claims are terminal. She just wishes they were so she could get that sweet, sweet “dying girl” attention and associated “you’re sooo brave” asspats.

No. 461295

POTS and other forms of dysautonomia are more common and not necessarily genetic. EDS is much less common and is always genetic. Like all these heds cows, which one of their parents has it? Because you pretty much have to have at least one parent with it (as multiple genes are suspected and that’s not likely to happen spontaneously), although they may have it much milder and be undiagnosed. The other types can be spontaneous mutations, but can be genetically tested for.

It can be, but mostly it's genuinely sick people who see munchies on social media and the news with service dogs and think they need one too. Because munchies are always portraying it as so easy and life saving, really disabled people get in way over their heads trying to get an SD for a condition it barely helps, spending their time money and effort.

Not necessarily. I’ve had an nj as well, and was told they only use the larger size, as it’s less likely to get clogged and need to be replaced.

That's because she had an NG first. So I imagine that's just a surplus old tube? May explain why she was giving chronically.ams her NG tubes for draining?

I feel sorry for her in some ways because she has genuine mental illness, but not the kind she thinks she’s got.

She's another anachan, followed mostly by ED accounts. I have a lot of ED followers so I can see who among them follows her.

Pretty clear that she paid for this diagnosis and has fuck all wrong with her apart from being mental.

No. 463183

Scarring doesn’t happen in heds (type 3, it’s not numbered any more, and hasn’t been for a while, which says a lot about the validity of her diagnosis) like it does in other types; extensive scarring is usually a clue it’s not heds. It sounds like she went to either a terrible doctor, or is flat-out lying.

No. 463185

EDS is a favorite of ana chans because it’s invisible and easy to fake on a surface level, and also more “special” and rare than an eating disorder, which is what many of them want. Attention for their “specialness”.

No. 463192

Plus, most ana chans and bulimics are orthostatic, so they go around saying they have POTS, when they’re just dehydrated and malnourished. Mental illness just doesn’t get the asspats that physical illness does, especially a rarer illness. And then they can prance around saying they’re a “rare zebra”, when really they’re just mentally ill.

You’re right, it totally is, but it’s more skin stretchiness and stretch marks not related to weight changes, not extensive scarring. Extensive scarring is more ceds.

It's quite common for there to be some "crossover" symptoms. Like cEDS patients can have subluxation of joints, hEDS patients can have cEDS-style scarring or minor organ involvement (more serious in vEDS).

I mean, that's how my specialist explained it to me. I haven't read the new guidelines properly.

But it doesn't sound like she is getting her precious tube right now does it?
I don't know much about gastric stimulators but are they completely under the skin? How visible are they? It may get her some spoonie validity points online (but she doesn't even seem to be very successful at that). If it's not super visible then its not going to get her the "I look super sick" points she has been aiming for with a feeding tube.
And sadly I wouldn't be surprised if she has very little support through the surgery - I could see her dad going with her as she will likely need someone to drive her home (is this the kind of surgery that will require an overnight stay?) but I doubt the supposed boyfriend of 14 years will make an appearance. I'm sure she will come up with some excuse like he has to work but if you are in a good relationship and the person you love is having surgery you find a way to be there. She sadly will likely have to recover at home alone.
And seriously how does she not know what the other procedure she is having done is? Can't describe it more than "cuts open the one valve"? I would assume they would give her some sort of paperwork with the names of the procedures being done - but she couldn't be bothered to take the 2 seconds to look it up.
On one hand she drives me crazy because she is obviously someone with mental illness that is spending time and resources chasing imaginary physical problems. On the other hand I feel a little bad for her - I think that her mental illness has driven most people away from her (at least per previous reports here) and since she isn't the sharpest tool in the shed and she is so caught up in the fact that something is wrong with her (I do believe she is actually convinced that she is seriously ill - she sits at home and perseverates on every minor ache and pain thinking it means she is dying) that she isn't really capable of questioning if these procedures are needed. The doctors are going off what she reports which isn't accurate. She will let them cut in to her for any reason when what she really needs is a better therapist and someone to help her find the right mix of meds.

Her post says she was offered The Cassel (and chose not to go). The Cassel is long term residential personality disorder treatment. Residential treatment is quite rare in the UK, as is getting the funding so her local teams are probably pretty pissed off that they put all the effort into getting her funding and a bed and then she turned it down.
Also yes, I suspect her attempts are very half hearted ligatures. Not that that means she shouldn't be in psych but clearly she has a PD diagnosis to get a Cassel place…

No. 463678

Papery scarring can be part of hEDS. You usually get genetic testing to check it isn't cEDS but hEDS can still have complex skin involvement.
Also whilst I doubt she is actually quoting what Prof Graheme said he is a really really good doctor. Though depending when that post was from I don't get how she got to see him because he has been semi retired for some time and even if you're paying you can no longer get on his waiting list.

She forced the hospital to put her on a shit ton of pain meds, no wonder she’s having gi problems. (Not to mention that anas have terrible gi problems). After she doctor-shopped to find somewhere where they “recognized my problems were only because of my physical illnesses” and who would give her those pain meds (which from what she’s said seems to be much more than necessary). Such bullbaiting with this one. She’s still way, way stuck in her eating disorder, and actively was restricting her tube feeding and tpn.

Has she specifically said it’s a PET scan? All I’ve seen is that she’s getting a scan to look for more tumors. It might just be a ct scan or MRI to look for more benign tumors (if this one was cancerous, they wouldn’t be waiting, they would have done a PET scan a while ago). She manages to at least embellish everything. My guess is that the colonoscopy is to try and find where her “extreme pain” is coming from, since there’s no medical reason for it. Or they also think she’s full of shit, and just want to confirm.

She said she was scheduled for a gallium scan, as those kind of tumors don't show up on a normal CT scan.

In the interest of full disclosure: I am partial to the theory that she DOES have cancer, but that she is loving every minute of it.

However, I too find it strange that they canceled her scan in lieu of a colonoscopy. As a lay person, I would've expected them to do a scan before her surgery. Because IF she had other tumors, then maybe they could remove them all during the same surgery?

I don't get the prep though. She's been on TPN and though she had been eating some stuff, I'd expect it to be clear stuff mostly, like broth and jello. She would hardly need a prep after that. I also agree that no hospital would put her through bowel prep if she couldn't sit up and was in so much pain. That would just be torture.

But I also think they are kind of desperate to find anything to explain the fact that she can't tolerate her feeds. They wouldn't just sent her home with TPN when there's no explanation for this, so they are probably trying to find out what's wrong before they discharge her. No doctor likes to discharge a patient whom they know won't be getting any nutrition at home. But there's also no medical reason thus far that would explain why she couldn't just run her feeds (or eat, for that matter) so they are probably grasping at straws here.

Sorry but she’s straight up lying. Cancerous Neuroendocrine tumors ARE treated with radiation and chemo….. they run in my family. Why should hers be any different?
Right after surgery my Aunts Merkle Cell areas were radiated.. it’s called adjuvant therapy. And they didn’t wait to do a PET scan, so why they would wait for her is beyond me as well. As for my other aunt, she had “targeted therapy”, after her surgery, radiation AND chemo, which is a treatment that targets the tumor’s specific genes/proteins/tissue environment helps it growand survive..

Yep, this is 100% lying. I wouldn’t be surprised if she has a few benign lesions and is amping it up. She also just refers to them as “tumors” and “cancer”, without reference to grade or type. Is it pheochromocytoma? Is it merkel cell? Is it neuroendocrine carcinoma? Malignancy requires some form of treatment. She talks about “injections to prevent regrowth” but (a) what “injections” would she be referring to?, (b) neuroendocrine tumours (and cancer in general) isn’t generally a repeated occurrence (recurrances don’t happen for everyone) so why is she predicting that it could return?

Does anyone follow ninajean? She often seems to engage with cows. Not sure if she's a farmer and subtly prodding them or just sees through their bullshit. I think she's OTT herself a bit.

No. 464600


And how can she claim that it isn't metastatic if they haven't done a full body scan to make sure there aren't any other tumors? Wouldn't they have to first check to see if there were other tumors and then test them to see if they are related to the initial tumor.
It is odd that she doesn't talk about what stage the tumors were. I think it is possible that if the tumor was caught early and hasn't spread that surgery and regular follow up is all that is required. That being said its not super common to find a PNET tumor early - Aubrey undergoes so many unnecessary medical tests that I wouldn't be surprised if they found it early.
I am not sure if it is or isn't cancer - even if it is it think it was caught so early that the likelihood of it being fatal is small. And she is probably thrilled about that - she gets to claim cancer without having to undergo any of the usual associated treatments.
Regardless I think it is very suspicious that she hasn't had a full body scan yet. If they thought they could wait a few weeks to remove the tumor they certainly could have fit her in for a variety of scans prior to the surgery - after all if you find more tumors you might be able to remove them all at once to avoid undergoing anesthesia multiple times. Plus knowing if there are more tumors would help figure out if it was malignant cancer which could alter the course of treatment.
She may have cancer but she is definitely BSing as well.

No. 464605


She definitely reads the thread as she has engaged with cows before and often is willing to bring up questions mentioned here. She does seem to often manage to do it in a way that it usually makes it seem like she is a spoonie friend that makes the cows less likely to delete the comments- some cows like Dani (and possibly Autumn) were always more likely to respond to her. I looked into her a while ago - she seems a bit OTT but last time she was brought up on the board it seemed others deemed that she wasn't really worth milking.

I mean, I have bets that only a few of the people posted here are faking it. I wonder what would happen if we were all to find each others accounts and pick apart every little inconsistency or OTT post ever made on the internet by us anons.

World war 3 would break out in the thread.

No. 464641

I think in the thick of it, when you're feeling awful after a dose of chemotherapy or having a particularly bad day with joint pain, etc., everyone is OTT. The difference is I think that for the cows posted here, illness controls every aspect of their lives. Aubrey literally can't function when she's out of the hospital, and now the bitch is faking cancer. You literally can't be scummier than that. Having a bad day every once in awhile and taking the time to rest or mentally deal with the stress and pain that comes with chronic illness is acceptable. Lying about cancer and demanding tube after tube and wasting resources isn't.

No. 464647


There is more to it than that though; not all PNET cases are the same. Aubrey mentioned that her tumors were entirely resectable (removed whole without disturbing margins) and that they were non-metastatic, and in this case, surgical resection can be the only treatment needed.
In the screenshot in >>464514, she states the correct clinical trajectory in her reply comment: "1st line of treatment is to remove it and then further treatment depends on what grade the tumor is / if they were able to get all of it surgically."

I think people need to settle down with the "ZOMG 100% LYING" accusations. None of us know for sure. Speculate away, everyone, but please don't make definitive assertions without adequate knowledge.

That said, is she loving the fuck out of this? Oh hell yes, she is clearly thrilled and getting off on the attention and drama of it all, but does that mean her tumors are not malignant? No. We just don't know without her pathology report.

TL;DR: Her story is feasible from a clinical standpoint.

No. 464650

True maybe, for the cancer part, but not all the other stuff, the malnutrition, “severe” abdominal pain, not being able to tolerate her feeds, having GP and POTS, having chronic Lyme, needing a service dog, the list literally goes on and on. Even if she’s not lying about one thing, her whole life is still a lie.

No. 464654

The major thing is that is all they talk about, and make a point to only portray themselves as sick, all over social media with a million tags and gofuckme’s and begging for attention and more equipment and meds and constantly in search of their next diagnosis. A person can be sick and have it be a huge part of their life without talking about it all the time and constantly reminding everyone around them and on the internet how sick they are. Going above and beyond what's normal for an illness, even when it’s not medically recommended. That’s what makes a munchie or ott spoonie.

No. 464658

It's not because of that but you literally just made a whole post with specifics about you and your illness. That's blogging and it is against board rules. Nobody gives a fuck what your story is and whether you are better or worse than other sick people. This board is anonymous for a reason. Personal shit is only relevant if you are saying that x or y is true or false in your case, for context.

It’s also very odd that they’ve known about her “cancer9 for what, 5 or 6 weeks now? and they’ve yet to do a PET scan. I had a friend with an early stage cancer, and they did a PET scan less than a week after she was diagnosed (to confirm if it was contained or not). Pretty much everyone nowadays knows at least one or two people who have had cancer, and it’s clear her story just doesn’t add up.

No. 464664

She also said it was genetic I think. Her brother’s tumors were benign, if it’s genetic, hers are, too. I don’t think she’s lying about the tumors, but I don’t think she’s got cancer.

No. 464665


But Aubrey is also saying she won't know if it's metastasized until she's had her scan.

No. 464666

I noticed that too. Did she have a biopsy at all? She mentioned she didn’t have a PET scan until after I’m pretty sure, so how would they know it’s malignant? There’s a huge difference between having a malignant (cancerous) tumour and having a benign tumour. Sage for semi blogging but I had one in my nasal cavity and had a biopsy and it proved it was benign before being removed. She essentially had no way of knowing it was cancerous and claimed it was before any PET scan or biopsy. For newfags (and potential munchies here), CT and MRI scans do not determine cancer. A biopsy and PET scan do.

No. 464667

Really, I think she either doesn’t know that all tumors aren’t necessarily cancerous, or she does know but in her typical style is bending the truth for those sweet, sweet asspats.

Which brings me back to this site being a cesspool of OTT spoonies calling out OTT spoonies, giving it "MY EDS IS SO SEVERE THAT MEANS THIS PERSON IS LYING"

Again, unless people have definitive proof people are lying, this thread is for speculation only. Take Eli for example, we speculated he lied about cancer, he was proven to be a fraud and charged by police for scamming a charity - we now know for a fact he did lie about having cancer, before then it was just people speculating and picking at inconsistencies. There's no way to know for sure who is and isn't lying until they get caught by authorities, so please everyone - do not speak of people as though it is gospel on the thread, take everything said here as speculation, not facts.

Y'all, this is becoming painful. Can we please stop with the "she's lying" because my friend was diagnosed with cancer and had chemo and a PET scan six minutes later.

Aubrey has had a biopsy. The tumor was malignant.

She is in the Texas Cancer Center (whatever it's called) system, which is a HUGE network, but they follow national protocols, research clinical trials, and if a PET scan or whatever can wait, it waits. If she needed it yesterday, she would have had it yesterday.

She was supposed to have the gallium scan before her surgery, but her feeding tube issue caused her to be hospitalized and when you have cancer (or an oncologist involved in your care who belongs to Texas Cancer Center), they stick you on that floor because NO ONE ELSE will touch a Texas Cancer Center patient while they are in cancer treatment. The oncologist runs the show. Full stop.

Now, this is not totally true (i.e., if you live out of town, you might go to your local hospital for a blood transfusion, react to that, be admitted, etc.), but I guarantee the doc at that hospital is on the phone with your oncologist. Or, if you run into a crappy hospitalist doc, they may arrogantly try to treat you, but your oncologist will be pissed.

I believe Aubey's family (her parents) live states away, so unless she's asked them to get on a plane, I don't think it's that easy. All the locals have new babies, so they should not be visiting her while she has mystery fevers, rumors of c.diff, and all that but some still are, as evidenced by paining with the young nephew. Her mother-in-law and a friend of the MIL have been walking the dog daily in the mornings, so enough with the "no one visits." She had a room-full for the tumor goodbye party.

I guess what I'm saying is that if you want to rail on Aubrey at least watch her videos or get the facts as they are being told straight. (If she is lying, at least get the lies straight.)

When has she had a biopsy? To play devil's advocate, the Texas cancer center will treat a wide variety of conditions, not just cancer. Certain blood disorders and benign tumors are among them. I received chemotherapy for SLE and saw an oncologist at TCC, for example, even though I didn't have cancer. I'm not disagreeing with you anon, just saying that the fact that Aubrey is under TCC doesn't necessarily give weight to her claim of malignancy.

If you’re going to come in here with your creepy-ass Aubrey obsession, maybe you’re the one who needs to get their facts right. And I quote: “hospitalized for problems with her feeding tube.” She was hospitalized because she was malnourished, apparently to a critical point, yet here she is today, looking pretty fucking healthy. It’s medically impossible to recover from severe malnutrition to the point of needing tpn in under two weeks. And that feeding tube? She’s never run it faster than the rate they prescribe to infants. An adult who is feeding tube dependent needs to have a feeding tube running at least 60 ml/hr for 23.5 hours a day, which is impossible even in itself as it takes longer than that to set it up, especially having to fill up that tiny bag she uses multiple times. She is not and has never been dependent on her feeding tube or tpn, in fact while she’s been “starving” she’s been gaining weight, which can easily be seen. So take your white knighting and shove it.

Do YOUR homework. There is a huge difference between a MALIGNANT tumour (meaning actual cancer) and a BENIGN one (non-cancerous).

No. 464818

She didn’t state that the pathology report said it was malignant. She said it was non-metastatic, which simply means that it hadn’t spread. FYI, having multiple encapsulated, non-infiltrative, easily resectable NETs with zero lymphadenopathy and zero metastasis usually does not indicate malignancy. She’d also likely have chemo anyways to obliterate any remaining malignant cells.

inb4 she starts methotrexate or something.

No. 464822

She’s said surgery was her only treatment, unless that’s changed. So I doubt chemo, but I’m sure we’ll know sooner or later. Although chemo doesn’t automatically mean cancer, either. But also, look at the probability. Her brother had the same thing, and his was benign. Those kinds of tumors are rare, even more so in young people. So her having cancer is just incredibly improbable. Is it possible? Yes, it’s possible, but considering probability and family history and her personal history, it’s very, very unlikely. She had two tumors that they took out, it’s not cancer, and unfortunately for her, she’s going to be totally fine and live a long healthy life unless she whines her way into long term TPN (that shit is bad if you don’t absolutely, no other options need it).

No. 464843

I’m not disagreeing with you or WKing. My post simply said what she’s provided to us on her public instagram suggests that this isn’t malignant, but she likely won’t share more anyway so we’ll always be guessing. Also agree with you on the TPN bit.

Except a bunch of them end up mooching off the government disability programs, and thus aren't really paying for it at all. Other people's tax dollars are paying for it which makes it not much different from NHS in those cases.

I feel like it is almost worse in the US?
In the UK because of the NHS barring some exceptions (i.e. CPL) most people will just get told to get lost. You can't just switch doctors, your medical records follow you everywhere. So whilst it is bad because time= money and time= time a doctor could be with a really ill person. (Especially atm, if a UK munchie is currently in hospital or using ambulances unecessarily they are literally scum we're having a hospital crisis).

In the US because you can doctor shop (seemingly even on government assistance?) and it seems easier (?) to fundraise via gofuckme for literally anything (!) AND because the US health system is the most expensive in the world a) no one seems to tell these patients to get lost so they stay in the system longer b) doctors are used to expensive 'solutions' like saline, ports, tubes that involve expensive management i.e. homecare, surgery etc.

So overall US munchies cost more and get their munchiness fed into more. Mostly in the UK you just can't do that (like I said, excluding exceptions).

Will post screenshots in a bit but CPL is coming off loads of her meds to try and concieve again.

Nah, in order to be a supermunchie in the States you have to be wealthy. Look at the ones misusing the NHS - Paige, Ruby, HypermobileGuy, Chloe Print Lambert, Ams before she moved. There's a range of incomes and backgrounds even when you ignore the Breakspear Squad who are rich (MBV) or crowdfunding.

In the States, while there will be some abusing welfare of course, to succeed at MBI in particular you need far more drama and excitement, and more control over your treatment options (aka doctor shopping) than is possible on a low income. No one can copy Jaq without money.

They wanted to be called brave. They wanted to be called fighters. And more than anything, they wanted someone to acknowledge their actions, praise them and tell them they could be proud of it.

No. 465015

At the risk of having a lot of people say the very same thing to and about me:

I don't think that's fair.

We all believe different things. Some may think that cow X has factitious disorder, others think they have some genuine health issues but are really OTT about it, and yet others think they are either malingering or .. well, whatever they believe.

I happen to believe that Aubrey is a giant munchie and that she doesn't have anything she claims, except the cancer, unless it is proven that she doesn't. I also think she is loving every minute of her 'cancer warrior' status. I find it sickening how happy she is to add that to her hashtags. Yet I don't think she is lying about that one. I can give you my reasons for that, but that doesn't really matter right now.

I do however belief that her cancer diagnosis is more up for debate then most of her other health claims. Chronic Lyme, in the way she is presenting it, isn't even a thing (except a woo diagnosis) and it is very clear that she doesn't need a feeding tube just from looking at the feed rate she is using. Whether she currently has some pain or discomfort during her feeds is also up for debate, but what IS known is that in the days just before her most recent hospitalization she wasn't even trying. There's also clear evidence that she isn't malnourished.

The cancer diagnosis, IMO is more difficult to either proof or disproof. There is clearly something going on for her to be hospitalized for so long. So yeah, some of us think that this is one of the rare cases where the girl who cried wolf is actually sick. So I don't think it is fair to call someone who basically just says "tone it down a bit with the 'OMG she is lying about having cancer' because we simply don't know and there are indicators that can go either way" (and you may notice that they are not the first to say this, including a self-declared medfag) an Aubrey-admirer, lolcow, WK or say that they must be Aubrey. They simply said that some things that were being said here (like that she didn’t had a biopsy and therefore could not know if the tumor was malignant, or that she had no family visit at all, or that it can't be true because they weren't in a rush do operate - just so you know, if a tumor is slow-growing a couple of weeks don't make any difference outcome-wise). NOWHERE do they say that they think Aubrey is legit in any of her other claims, or that they like her.

We make some sort of a hobby out of finding out the truth about people who are lying online. We pick apart entire accounts to see if we can find out the truth. But if someone points out evidence that maybe the truth is a little different then the predominant opinion on lolcow, they basically get tarred and feathered.

Like I said; I don't just think that's fair.

But don't things like "She is lying about cancer, that's the lowest of the lowest" or "of course she is lying about having cancer", "someone needs to call her out on this, this is going too far" also indicate that people refuse to believe they may be wrong? A lot of people have been very vocal and very convinced about this.

I don't want to make it into a big discussion about how to or how not to speculate about someone's health - I am not the judge of lolcow. I just saw someone attacked who in my eyes just told people that some of the conclusions about Aubrey were based on the wrong facts. Now that conclusion may still be the same, but as Sherlock Holmes said: "it is a capital mistake to theorize before one has enough data".

I don't care if other people are convinced she does not have cancer. However just like I cannot be sure she actually has it, they cannot be sure she doesn't have it. And I think that someone who has another view might not be as inclined to defend someone if we all would word our views a bit more careful. I think a lot of discussion can be avoided by simply adding "I believe that.." or "I am convinced.." to a post instead of stating things as fact.

Good fucking god there is a lot of sperging about Aubrey. This is starting to feel like Kelly Ronahan 2.0, where the sooper srs medical mystery was all a fucking lie, and Kelly WKed herself constantly.

Early prediction: Aubrey and/or her flying monkeys are already here trying to firefight our poor opinion of her and her Suffering TM.


Here is a recent post by Amanda, where with her healthy, clear skin and full cheeks, is whining about living off of less than 300 calories a day. Boo hoo hoo.

These ana-chan cows always mystify me, because they don't actually suffer under a physically mediated reduced appetite, and the way that they talk about it is clear. Judging it by calories and portion sizes is strongly reminiscent of intake control for anorexics.

When you actually have reduced appetite due to a disease process, there are different metrics you judge your willingness to engage in food, rather than how many calories. So nothing terribly out of the ordinary for the tube-fed anorexic crowd, but just one in the plethora of girls we've seen bravely parading their "malnourished" state.

And here we have Molly pathologizing being dehydrated. Getting EMS to respond for being wobbly, especially in this kind of fucking weather? Unreal.

And I like how she's saying her symptoms must match low blood sodium.

But gotta get that sweet, sweet saline bag, ferried by her private limo service, given how often EMS must get called to her location. She's one of the many cows who spent at least a few days in the emergency room during Christmas, which again is a very very telling sign across the board for these bitches.

Everybody's gonna get validated and have a good time? Whoops, gotta put a halt to that, direct all the attention on me, and fake a medical crisis so everything can be about ME ME ME. My god, these women are so selfish and to be honest rather mean spirited. All of this shit is intentional, and they decide to make the people who care about them worry during what should be one of the happiest times of the year.

OTT spoonies keep some of us in the real world, I think (or at least me, anyway). Those who are hypochondriacs and over-analyze all their symptoms would do well to watch these cows, because it's a glimpse of what uncontrolled hypochondria and selfishness can lead to. This is why I read here. It keeps everything in check for me by watching people who are out of control and ridiculous.

This is true. Medicaid, Medicare, and the VA don't pay for all of the craziness that these cows do. I work in the EMR side of the industry and while they pay for standard care, they won't go all out on unnecessary items or trials.

No. 465068

I tend to agree with that… kind of. I think her crazy munchiness lead to an abundance of medical tests that possibly revealed that she has the same type of neuro-endocrine tumors that her brother had. I do not think they are malignant. She found out way too early for them to definitively say it is cancer. I just can't imagine things work that quickly, but again, I am more behind the scenes on the financial side and not the clinical side, so I don't know how quickly this stuff gets diagnosed. But I think she is milking this for all it is worth.

True pancreatic cancer is quite terminal, isn't it? I just found out about a friend of the family who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and he has been given 3-6 months to live.

I also know of a coworker who had pancreatitis and it was incredibly painful for him. He was out of work for a long time. I cannot imagine anyone vlogging during pancreatitis, even with drugs.

Back to the milk, right?

I thought this was funny. Aubrey tells the camera that they will probably be travelling out of state to see a specialist, "because it's a really rare cancer, and.. It's kind of frustrating (and THERE is her grin) because I feel like I always have to seek out these specialists.." (at about the 4.00 minute mark)

Regarding OTT spoonies.

I have two thoughts. One is, does anyone else have major doubts about Lara Bloom? I know she has a different strategy to the anachan brave lil fighters, but I am … not convinced she actually has EDS. She comes off as incredibly narcissistic and not really concerned with the illness, given how she follows many obvious munchies (e.g. actively and vocally supported Carmel with the EDS Society). She seems to me like someone who is potentially using very mild illness, probably benign joint hypermobility, for massive personal gain and self enrichment.

Second, I have also been checking out EDS UK and they seem pretty whack too. Lots of reposting from shite accounts like "chronicloveclub" which are breeding grounds for OTT and full on munchies. Real sick people aren't interested in that crap.

Not doubting they are both legal charities, but they both set my OTT (at minimum) alarms blaring.

I'm no service dog expert - my only firsthand experience is with the mother of one of my clients. She's blind & has a seeing eye dog. That dog is a ninja. The first time I met the family, I didn't realize the service pup was there until halfway through our visit. I've sure never seen him play with toys or leave his spot under his owner's feet.

Nope. I think the highest we ever saw was 25 ml/hr, which even at 24 hours a day (physically impossible) is only 900 calories. And she for sure wasn’t surviving on that, or she would have lost a shit ton of weight (she really lost little to none, if not gained).

Whoops I lied, the fastest she ever was at was 35. A whopping 1,260 calories a day if she was running it 24 hours a day, which is, again, impossible. Even continuous feeds have to be stopped to refill the bag or change sets, to give medication, and to shower. But she’s been everywhere from 35 to 15 ml/hr; most hospitals don’t discharge you after your first tube placement at less than 50 ml/hr. Normal for an adult with a gj tube is 80-120 ml/hour for at least 16-18 hours a day, since continuous feeds aren’t great for your gi system.

As far as her tube goes, she “accidentally” pulled out her nj tube in August (pics 1&2), and was left without one until over a month later (3&4). Those tubes don’t just come out, they’re taped way down, and they’re far enough into the small intestine that it’s lots of pulling to get one out. And no one who really needs a feeding tube is left for more than a day without one, let alone over a month. Also, she’s creepily elated to get a gj tube.

A tilt table test can easily show a false positive for someone who’s dehydrated or has electrolytes off. She’s an ana chan who purges, so that would come fairly easily. A TTT is not the automatic “absolutely it’s pots” test that munchies and spoonies claim it is. It’s merely a part of autonomic testing, there are several other tests that must be done to actually confirm a diagnosis.

No. 465597

She’s lost weight from that picture. But before the munchie stuff happened. Smells like an eating disorder to me.

No. 465598

She started going veggie at one point, and cut a lot of stuff from her diet after Lyme dx. Not being able to eat a lot of stuff could have triggered the ED.

No. 465601

Especially if you add in her gross teeth, exercise and previous veggie obsessions, absolutely demanding Kate’s farms, and the fact that if there’s been actual motility testing (I think I remember something about it), we’ve never seen any proof of the results other than what she says. And even here she claims GP, but isn’t eating things that are good for it (definitely not vegetables). And look how many foods she was already restricting.

thank you for the work, the reaching for a specific diagnosis is pretty clear

I know a lot of medications have a rare side effect of causing cancer. I am starting to think that she basically gave herself cancer from being a munchie and begging for meds.

I have a general question- are all spoonies who do saline infusions OTT? Because there are a few girls who seem pretty normal who do them for POTS and some who even have central lines for them that aren’t munchie at all otherwise… so like what’s the verdict on that? obvs some of the people are OTT sometimes but everyone is dramatic occasionally so I’m trying to figure out if the ports and piccs are legit and the occasional OTT is just regular drama or if they’re true OTT

No. 465678

I think there can be normal spoonies who benefit from the Saline infusions. I do think the Port/PICC/IV has become a bit of an OTT trend, but there are definitely people who genuinely benefit!

No. 465688

HAHAHA WOW! Another cow sees or saw the same electrophisiologist. You're not even allowed to have anyone in that room or any other autonomic testing room. There are also many signs asking you to refrain from taking pictures or using your phone. I know exacty who that doctor is from the poster on the wall.

She had to have only went to him for her diagnosis and another doc for her precious PICC. There is no way in hell she actually got it from her POTS doctor.

If this is the same doctor who diagnosed her with MALS (very likely) she may not have it. I believe he is seriously over diagnosing it in thin women who aren't actually symptomatic.

No. 465692


I wonder if she'd been referred to a dietician at this point? GP-safe diets are easy to find on the internet.

No. 465694


But MALS is a great excuse not to eat and get your "nutrition" from Kate Farms eh?

No. 465698

It's the only reason she's clinging to MALS. It's an excuse to not eat (or she sees it as one… People with it try to eat!) and a future surgery if she's extra special. Bitch doesn't even present like someone with MALS or mention pain that would be related to it at all.

It was good sleuthing anon. I can't believe how quickly the illnesses piled up with her! Then again all cows pile them on quickly, seemingly.

No. 465729

Is she clinging to it, though? None of her other sooper serious diagnoses (POTS, MALS, gastroparesis, LYME) have been mentioned since she got the big C. Because sooper serious debilitating medical conditions are irrelevant when you're diagnosed with a PNET.

No. 465737

Definitely the GP/MALS (both make it so to can’t eat much, but it’s odd to blame her go issues on both, and there’s been no specification which is causing problems), since that’s what she’s used most recently to wrangle a hospital admission. But the Lyme seems to be totally and completely forgotten, even though that was the start of her munchie journey, and that got her the picc line and then the port. It wasn’t originally for saline, it was for the heavy duty antibiotics her Lyme doctor had her on (an unproven treatment for an unproven disease).

No. 465751

Absolutely not. It sucks that the OTT crowd has tarnished the reputation of saline infusion therapy. Some patients do not maintain adequate blood volume and saline infusions are a critical game-changer in their quality of life. Fuck these drama queens for even making people think this way!
TL;DR: It's a legit therapy, but OTT/Munch crowd gives it a bad name.

Ah, Lyme disease: a munchie’s best friend. Causes whatever symptoms they want.

No. 465812

Kek, sounds like you get them.

There's a reason why they aren't available in the UK, just saying. For POTS/EDS, it's not a necessary treatment for like 99.9% of people, meaning that yes, those getting it are OTT. Especially if they use it for drama. There is a minuscule percentage who may genuinely benefit (sucks to them if they're British, sadly), but we have no way of knowing who that is, and I seriously doubt they even post it on Instagram.

Ports do not work well for TPN.

No. 465913

Prozac (antidepressant), lamictal (mood stabiliser), quetiapine (atypical antipsychotic), temazepam (benzo, addictive after one week of use, used for anxiety). So at least 4 of her pills are for mental illness, for pretty heavy problems when all used together. Nothing wrong with having those issues and needing medication for it, but it definitely paints a different picture than what Aubrey usually does.

No. 465936

got that sympathy money

No. 465944

Naltrexone is also a popular drug in alternative medicine. Seeing as she has chronic Lyme and sees a 'Lyme literate' doctor, that's probably why she takes (took?) it. The theory is that a low dose (LDN, for low dose naltrexone) teaches your opiate receptors to make natural pain relievers. Well, something lke that, anyway.

But seriously who wants te whole world to know which meds they take so they can pick it apart? Even Jaquie doesn't share ALL of her meds.

No. 465945

No. 465970

Lamictal is also an antiepileptic to be fair

No. 465973

Gabapentin is for nerve pain. I know they give it to people after surgery sometimes for long term use instead of narcotics because its not addictive. (In my opinion, its a sugar placebo pain pill)

No. 465976

Gabapentin is an anti-epileptic, not a sugar placebo pill. It works well when utilised as a painkiller because it blocks the pain receptors in the brain.

No. 465979

Sage for blogging again, but when I needed a transplant they sat us down for evaluation and told us "do not use gofundme!" Go fund me takes a percentage of the money for themselves. Also it is unknown if you are bound to use that money for only medical purposes. (Basically it can scam people). For fundraising they always suggest COTA or Caringbridge. The money MUST be used for medical expenses only! I think shes making bank on this.

No. 465985

THIS is exactly why I was so suspicious about her claim that it was cancer right off the bat. How in the world can it be decided that it's cancer when they haven't even done the surgery to remove it or anything else! The OTT behavior just kills me.

That definitely looks like a baby bump because it’s lower than where the bloat would be if it was stomach bloating. Considering early pregnancy causes nausea, vomiting, and GI issues…I’m a little suspect.

No. 466027

I agree it looks more like a pregnant belly than bloating. Normally I'd say she could be pushing her belly out and since she was pregnant not too long ago it's easier to do that and have it look like this. But I have to say she looks pretty relaxed for her to push her belly out and hold her breath.

She doesn't have a pregnancy line though, but it could easily be too early for that.

I don't know. Did she react to the pregnancy questions?

It appears she was on IV "something" before this GFM, which means she probably couldn't pay for it. The instagram pic of her medical records is from March 2016.

Has she ever even complained of nausea before? Bloating is not the only symptom of gastroparesis. What a brainless twat!

I know GFM take a cut, but most fundraising sites do.

Pretty sure she wants to be fully on tpn, and is going to claim she can’t handle any of her feed (despite being able to survive totally tubeless nearly 6 weeks just a couple months ago). >>465942

We do not have a national system like that here but it's based off of private insurance plans. So each insurance plan has a 111 type service. It, too, is flawed, because the majority of the time they will tell you to go to an urgent care or an emergency room because they don't want to be sued if it is something that will cause death or major problems and they told them to just see their doctor in the morning.

Actually in most cases USA munchies are exploiting the Medicaid system which is free healthcare provided by the govt to ppl who are below a certain income level. Ppl with private insurance usually aren’t munchies because they have to pay out of pocket for a percentage of their BS. Medicaid is 100% free and terribly abused by poor and indigent ppl because, why not? It’s free!! Hospitals and doctors don’t report fishy shit by munchies because they can bill the system out the ass for pointless stuff and make big bucks. Doctors who specialize in Medicaid patients are famous for being shady and recommending pointless unneeded procedures just to make money.

I had a friend in college who had Medicaid, she had some pretty common female problem that could be solved with minor surgery. The doctor pushed her to have a total hysterectomy because he made $10,000 on those procedures but only $1,800 on what she needed. Luckily she knew that was bonkers and wrong, but I bet
lots of women would just do whatever the doctor suggested.

All hospitals accept Medicaid, so that’s why munchies can abuse the ER so much. Private insurance ppl have to pay $100 to $500 co-pay per ER visit plus a % of the hospital bill. Private insurance put in those copay fees to discourage abusing the ERs, Medicaid has no such thing and hospitals make a ton of money billing on pointless ER visits by Medicaid munchies.

I have private insurance and one of my first questions to a provider is if they take Medicaid patients, if they do I stay away. In most fields the good doctors in the USA only take private insurance patients. (Keep in mind Medicaid is for the poor, Medicare is for older people and a different ballgame entirely.)

Once the out of pocket maximum is met, services are covered 100% [pic related]. Munchies would reach the out of pocket maximum very quickly.

Medicaid is not available based solely on income in all states. Some states require that enrollees be on SSI (or have an application pending), be pregnant, or have dependent children. The ACA gives states the option to expand Medicaid to cover adults under 65 based solely on income, but not all states opted to expand their programs.

in the UK wheelchair services now only fund part of the cost of a wheelchair, or will provide a standard NHS manual wheelchair, measured to your body by an occupational therapist.

Electric/custom wheelchairs are covered through social services, but it is a very strict criteria, as in if you're mobile and not bedbound, you're not getting your own electric wheelchair off them, and even if you do meet the criteria, it is a 3 year waiting list.

the motability component of personal independence payment (the new DLA) - is specifically for people who score more than X amount on the "moving around and mobility" aspect, that specific chunk of money that you get paid monthly, goes towards hiring an adapted car, a wheelchair, or a mobility scooter.

There is no need for anyone to be fundraising for a powered wheelchair if they live in the UK since the government gives you money to hire them if you genuinely need them.

I found a few munchie/OTT I’ve been following and am curious on all of your input. Can I just list?

First is on Facebook and not Instagram: Ella Arden Grace. Claims to have type 1 diabetes for 20 years, along with severe gastroparesis, autism, PTSD and a bunch of other shit I’m sure she’s convinced she has but doesn’t. The T1 and GP are real, but she very clearly manipulated her blood sugar and goes into frequent DKA. She has used glucagon in an insulin pump and an insulin pump at the same time. Ella claims to have “type 1 diabetes, subset type a, subset type brittle” and it is the worst in the world. She is very OTT in videos she posts in hospital and even at home, very fixated on everything medical. She has a port and like everyone else walks with it hanging out of her shirt. She gets herself into DKA, goes to different hospitals because doctors catch on to her shit, demands TPN and then gets caught and discharged. She lived in NY but is now in TN staying with a friend and once again doctor shopping. Ella’s had a feeding tube placed but claimed it caused her “800/10” pain and had it removed within a month. She is extremely OTT…cringingly so. I’d love to hear your opinions.

Next is munchie “mightylittlefighter”. Is from Canada, claims to have neurofibromatosis and has tumors in her digestive tract that have caused her to go on TPN. Except that the girl has never come out and said her diagnosis. She hasn’t tried tubes. Doesn’t answer questions. And very clearly has an eating disorder she’s trying to cover with TPN. There have been bits of information circulating from people who have proof that this Allie girl has manipulated her way into getting a line and TPN and that she has no underlying reason for TPN (no motility disorders or physical reason) other than her complaints of pain when she eats…again for no reason at all. It’s evident by taking one look at her that she’s skipping TPN infusions or clearly purging because she hasn’t gained any weight, and if you’ve been on TPN when you were “malnourished” you know that you pack on the pounds. Her pictures are all of her IV medications and talking about her sooper severe symptoms but again…no diagnosis when asked. Will avoid it.

This I need a line and TPN fad is getting old with the munchies. Not to mention that Allie has extensions on her line that are down to the floor. They are all a case of sepsis waiting to happen.

Happy searching!

Here are some of Ella. She is an avid fan of Facebook video, and her crying in pain picture is a whole video of her trying to make herself cry and screaming.

She also is very fixated on her nurses and seems to cling to them as maternal figures. Definitely juvenile and does not act her age..but speaks medical jargon like it’s no ones business. “At this point in time we’ll be starting an RER which is rapid electrolyte reusucitation and dispatching EMS with D10 on board wide open”.

No. 467065


There are many people who chose insurance plans that only cover basic care - but those aren't the people who know they have chronic illness(es).
I find the whole no insurance thing with her kind of fishy. If she is legally married to her husband she should be able to get health insurance through his employer (granted it may be super expensive and not a great plan). She said she got that health insurance plan on December 19th - most (if not all) health insurance plans typically start the first day of the month after you pay the first premium. Which means she cancelled the plan before she even tried to use it. It is difficult to figure out what health insurance plans cover (I have a higher level education and work in healthcare/am familiar with billing and I find it confusing) but most people discover their insurance plan is crap after they go to use it. If she researched it she should have known if it was good/bad and if she didn't she probably wouldn't figure it out until it was too late. Also if she is trying to get insurance through the marketplace she is running out of time because if she doesn't pick a plan by the end of the month she won't be eligible until next November and who knows what will have happened to the ACA by then).

Also how have multiple doctors told her she has GP if she doesn't have insurance. My guess is that she is using the no insurance thing as an excuse to not have tests done.

Agreed - if someone truly has a medical issue that is negatively impacting their life they would try a little harder to obtain the funds to get the necessary tests/treatment - this does not include buying and stocking a large fishtank, buying giant cat trees, and getting your toddler over 30 presents for Christmas (a few weeks before Christmas she counted 27 presents plus 15-20 cars for his stocking and thought she would get more) - you shouldn't have to cancel a kid's Christmas for medical bills but no kid needs 30 presents - much less a toddler who doesn't even really understand whats going on

I haven't heard of hospitals waiving ER fees recently (but I could be wrong). People without insurance used to use and abuse the ER because the ER can't turn you away but I think that hospitals figured out the loophole and worked to close it. Now I think they tend to bill you but they aren't necessarily allowed to aggressively pursue you to pay that bill and it doesn't have the same impact on your credit. Maybe she doesn't have a problem incurring a lot of debt? And I think they would wise up with a frequent flyer to discourage it as going to the ER for minor problems is a huge problem for ERs - it takes up time and resources that are needed for real emergencies. Generally people without insurance try to avoid doctors and ERs but she runs there for every little thing including her "broken EDS finger" - an ER visit with x-rays has got to add up.

No. 467074


Umm I don't know where you get your information about Medicaid but it sounds like you have been drinking some of the kool-aid.
Yes there are some people who abuse the system - both patients and doctors but ultimately those people are in the minority.
Many of my clients (they are all children) have Medicaid - almost all of them have at least 1 working parent. We don't get reimbursed as much for Medicaid patients as private insurance or private pay. What I like about treating clients with Medicaid is that I have never had Medicaid decline treatment for a child as long as I show their is a need (and this often involves more paperwork for me compared to other kids). I have had plenty of families with private insurance have to cut back on services that their child really needs due to insurance not covering it. Of the hundreds of families I have worked with I think I have only encountered 1 that I felt was trying to work the system.
Lots of doctors these days take Medicaid - almost every major hospital network takes it. If you are going to cut out all the doctors that don't take it then you are going to seriously limit yourself and eliminate some good doctors (I wouldn't want to see a doctor who considers themselves above treating low-income individuals)

Yes - private insurances usually have an out of pocket maximum that a munchie would reach quickly. Actually if you have Medicaid then being a munchie probably doesn't work out as great because you are much more limited in your ability to doctor shop and its harder to get non-standard treatments approved. Part of the reason why Dani hasn't gotten her precious feeding tube yet is that she doesn't have the resources to find a doctor who will do it.

All of the hospitals in my area have income charts they go by. If your income falls below a certain level, you can apply for assistance. It can be waived, lowered or denied. I had a friend who was a student and didn't make much money. He was able to have his entire fee waived due to the income sensitive program. He worked, but he didn't work enough.

She just got a new port because she claims the hospital gave her an infection when they accessed her old one so it had to be replaced.

One thing I noticed about some of the “veelogger” spoonies is a) their energy to film, edit, upload, and post these vlogs and b) how presumptuous they sound when talking to their (19 subscriber) audience. Like maybe half of those subscribers may actually watch the vlogs but they open the vlogs with “HI, GUYS!” All. Two. Of. You.

I didn’t see her on the current cow list, so I hope I did this right.

I don't follow her because I can't stand her, but one of her recent posts came up on my feed with that new feature that shows you stuff you might be interested in (kek no), and all I can say is… uk people, get your vom bowls ready. She's full narc.

Sorry I can't screenshot but my phone is shit.

about to rant but what gets me is how almost all ott spoonies say they're "spreading awareness." News flash, I think we have enough of that kind of "awareness". What is even the point of awareness anymore? It doesn't accomplish anything at all, and I think it actually has a negative impact on the people who are actually legitimately sick and trying to live a life with these illnesses because they don't want to be seen like the ott types.

No. 467347


same fag but also, there's definitely a proper place for awareness, but it's not obsessively making sure everybody knows about all of your symptoms and calling your pet dog a service dog. That's not merely making people aware of what it means to have an illness. It's hitting them over the head with it and then wondering why you dont have friends anymore.

Thats crazy - also I doubt that a doctor would admit that they have only performed the surgery twice and certainly not that one time it wasn't fine. Doctors learn ways to skirt around those kind of questions - they are never supposed to admit fault. Plus it puts the doctor at high risk of being sued if something does go wrong.
The doctor didn't say there is a chance he could cut too deep or too long because he has only performed the procedure twice - he has to explain the possible risks and thats probably why he mentioned the possible complications.
It is sad that she probably wants there to be complications - nothing would make her happier than a medical emergency and a longer hospital stay. If what she is saying is true then it is sad that she would just go along with it without question. Her desire to be seen as super sick is so high she will let any doctor cut into her without question.

>>The doctor didn't say there is a chance he could cut too deep or too long because he has only performed the procedure twice - he has to explain the possible risks and thats probably why he mentioned the possible complications.


As to the "he's only done it twice and one didn't go well" - I imagine the doctor could've said something like "out of every two of these procedures, one does well and for the other it doesn't work" - something like that. Maybe he has said that he doesn't do much of these procedures or that it's relatively new to their hospital. That's not completely outside the realm of possibilities. But he definitely has NOT said to her "I've only done two of them and you have to know I am kind of a hack". Even if a patient would ask a doctor flat-out how many times they did X procedure, most (like 95%) doctors wouldn't tell them if it was only two times. They would say something like "not very many, but I've assisted on them/it's not very complicated/I've done many other procedures that utilize the same technique/other blablah".

And we all know that Dani isn't the person to ask a doctor that question anyway, so we can be 99% certain that didn't happen.

Read the OP. Anon was asking if we have a 111 phone number to call to talk to a nurse and get triaged. Not asking if we have something similar to the NHS.

With that being said, just because you want a doctor who doesn't treat Medicaid patients doesn't mean everyone thinks that way. I'd rather have a competent doctor whose primary reason for treating people is due to the Hippocratic oath, not money.

Thanks for sharing this screenshot! That anon perfectly stated exactly what needed to be said. Amanda's mom also sounds like she's got a good head on her shoulders. Too bad she doesn't listen!

No. 467443

Let's even give her the benefit of the doubt on this one. If (we know he/she didn't say they had only performed the surgery twice and one went well and one didn't) but if they have only performed the surgery twice with a literal success rate of 50%, why would you go, "Yep, that's the doc and surgery for me?" This really shows her disordered thinking. I wouldn't let a doc remove a skin tag from me with a success rate like that, let alone perform something as complicated as what she is getting. She is very mentally ill.

No. 467444

Funny, but not everyone who has neurofibromatosis is "lumpy." There are other symptoms that are visible, however, including freckled armpits, spots in the eye, short stature, and cafe au lait spots. She could easily confirm by showing her armpits or a close up of her eyes.

I don't doubt her having this illness because it would be kind of ballsy to say that someone does without much proof, but she definitely is OTT. I know someone who has the exact same illness (type 1) and she never talks about it, but it affects her life a lot. She has lots of joint pain, is very short, is knock-kneed, and has brown spots on her irises. So this girl should have something to show for her illness, besides being skinny (which is not really a symptom of type 1).

No. 467447

Precisely - she so desperately wants to be ill that she is willing to undergo surgery even if the doctor and success rate of that surgery are in question. I almost expect that she wants there to be complications so she can have a longer hospital stay. Most people would say they were told they could be in the hospital for a day or two to a week but they are hoping they will only have to stay a day or two. She is like the doctor hasn't done this a lot so I could be in the hospital longer depending on if he screws up. While a normal individual would say I hope there arent any complications that would prolong my stay.

Is her 14 year boyfriend going with her for the surgery? Surely if you were in a relationship with someone for 14 years and were planning to move in together (any more news on that?) you would make an effort to be present if one of them was undergoing surgery.

I was going to say something like "well, regardless I hope it actually helps her and it also satisfies whatever need she is feeling inside so she won't push for a tube anymore".

Then I googled pyloroplasy. Looking at the risks and side effects, that doesn't look too good for her. One if the risks is increased reflux, including bile reflux. We established a while ago that she probably has quite bad reflux already, so unless they start treating the reflux quite agressively, it doesn't look too good.

Will they do anything else besides those two procedures? Dr. Google just told me that pyloroplasy is rarely done alone, it's usually combined with a vagotomy (which would help reflux) or something else. I'm no doctor, but it sounds like she would benefit more from a vagotomy or a Nissen then pyloroplasy or implanting a Stim.

Weren't her specialists supposed to be actual motility experts?

No. 467526

Yes, she's been going to the motility clinic at Temple which makes this even more baffling. I expected them to see straight through her BS and she should've been turned away from the research study due to her history of ED.

I assumed the big motility clinics had similar standards but I guess not.

The WK defending her needs to explain why she's not a munchie since literally everything that's been said about her = munchie red flags. None of the diagnoses mentioned indicate TPN, so she likely munched her way into it just like Ams, Chloe Print Lambert and the rest.
