She has fat in her face she hasn’t starved for two weeks lol

"get caught up in the scientific side" It's almost as if medicine depends on doctors knowing the science


sh0rterthansh0rtc4ke

interesting how these munchies claim to have so much medical trauma yet make their entire personality about being sick. Ash does this too and it really annoys me. Medical trauma for them is not getting the drugs or the special tubes they want, or having to push an appointment back a few days.....


herefortherealitea

Why can’t she replace the tube herself if it’s a g and a balloon?


throwawayacct1962

If they really believed someone couldn't eat absolutely anything, they would not make them go 14 days with no nutrition whatsoever. 14 days with 0 nutrition is potentially dangerous.


FireBeyond

>14 days with 0 nutrition is ~~potentially~~ dangerous. Extremely dangerous, if you're at the point of being as chronically ill as they claim to be.


GoethenStrasse0309

WOW. Lots of ppl are given IV fluids for 3-4 wks and Drs. apparently aren’t too concerned about someone starving to death LOL!


Lngtmelrker

This isn’t true at all. If someone absolutely can’t even tolerate tube feeds, they will be put on TPN. I’ve never seen a patient go more than 2-3 days on only IV fluids


GoethenStrasse0309

Except for ASLZ huh? She must be the exception. LOL. /s


GoethenStrasse0309

Except for ASLZ huh? She must be the exception, those old meanie doctors!!!!🤣. LOL. /s


busted3000

> So many doctors get all caught up in the scientific side of shit Perhaps this is just me, but I prefer doctors to focus on ‘the scientific side of shit’ myself 🤷‍♀️


Piccadillies

Me too. Especially considering the alternative would have to be the unscientific side! (and who knows what that would entail?)🤣


whosezthat

End the fast and have a muffin. It’s usually the one decent thing at most hospitals


BlindFollowBah

I wonder if they’re seeing if she’ll cave and eat fucking food lol


Piccadillies

Exactly my thought. Can you imagine starving yourself of food for two weeks knowing full well you can eat something whenever you want?


GoethenStrasse0309

Maybe she should contact Dani? We all know Dani can eat more than claimed. LOL!!


ihaaaateithere

“i typically do well with the medical PTSD and trauma but not this time” = usually the doctors just do whatever i ask them but now they’re the ones making the call, and as a result of their educated and medically appropriate decisions i’m traumatized


noneofthismatters666

So hungry they don't even have the strength to put their neck brace on. Sending thoughts and prayers.


comefromawayfan2022

Almost as if the doctors schedules aren't booked up helping actually sick people/s


[deleted]

Why do I somehow not believe that medical professionals are literally starving her? REALLY MAKES YOU THINK..


Interesting-Pin-6903

Got to have that line showing!


MissAdventuresofEBJ

Seriously! How much effort did it take to snake that line up through overalls and a turtleneck sweater.


sonawtdown

Forced starvation 👌


deletedbeans

i took one look at that long ass block of text and said “i’m not reading that”


Fannyislife

“The doctors won’t do what I want and I’m hungry”


unbearablybleak

“I ain’t reading that. Good luck with that or sorry that happened.”


PeridotWriter

Doctors and their science. Want them to just suddenly disregard science and see where that ends up? Have fun


Womcat1

Um, I know I’m 1000% missing the point here but can’t get over the whole “casual **14 days** of starving” thing… because last Thursday (when she says the tube got there) to this Thursday is literally 7 days. Like it’s all bullshit and whatever anyway—go drink a Kate Farms if you’re that “starving”—but at least get your basic counting right lol. Better call the whambulance….


Anonynominous

I'm uneducated in regard to tubes, but wouldn't someone like this be able to drink protein smoothies?


Low_Ad_3139

Yes typically. And unless she has a gj tube she could replace it herself.


Anonynominous

It's understandable, since the majority of subjects on this sub seem to lack the ability to care for themselves


katekowalski2014

They even have clear Ensure for those that can only tolerate clear liquids.


Anonynominous

I didn't know that was even a thing. Thank you!

Ooh, looking for those! Thank you!


Anonynominous

Of course! I'm not sure what area you live in but if you happen to be near Safeway, they sell them there, and the vanilla flavor is way better than the chocolate one.


nicunurse333

There would have to be something seriously wrong for the doctors to wait a week to put in a new tube. Likely there's an issue with the site of the previous tube (ie infection, scarring). Tube placement is an outpatient procedure and I'm sure the hospital wouldn't just let her hang out as an inpatient for a week until the tube is placed.


Upset_Rice1811

I do know of a few instances where hospitals can have trouble getting hold of certain tubes and get stuck on back order and the patient who needs it in an emergency has to wait a bit, but if it takes 2 weeks they admit the patient and put them on TPN if the patient has too much weight loss, dehydration.. I’ve not had this happen to any of our patients/or hospitals to my knowledge.


nicunurse333

Absolutely. They would have an alternative form of nutrition ie TPN . No surgeon would want to operate on a malnourished patient, if at all, due to poorer surgical outcomes or complications.


Low_Ad_3139

Exactly. Sometimes they will even use a different kind until the right one comes in…in a pinch.


Upset_Rice1811

Yes, in this case they have her tube just no room to fit her in. She is obviously on IV fluids so she won’t die. Yes it’s not fun and she’s likely lost some weight, but not enough that they’re worried about it.


throwaway_908908

Classic munchie claims PTSD from all their munching. Very meta. Anyone know if this person has a timeline?


FiliaNox

I actually zoned out reading that wall of text


Anonynominous

I had to unfollow someone on TikTok because they wrote novellas over the video and you had to pause to read it all. Like, wrong platform bro, lol


FiliaNox

It’s a video platform…why don’t you just, you know, say it? I don’t use TikTok much, honestly. But for instagram and Facebook I can understand word posts, but if you’re making a video on any platform, especially a video specific platform, you can just speak the words, so I don’t get walls of text on videos.


katekowalski2014

having to pause to read shit on tiktok absolutely enrages me, lol.


FiliaNox

Why make a video if the content is a wall of text? Why not just say it? Maybe it’s just me being old 😭 I just don’t get it


katekowalski2014

*get off my lawn, whippersnapper*


FiliaNox

Eh? What was that? You’ll need to speak louder sonny!


Anonynominous

Thanks for commiserating with me lol


thekactuskween

Same. Had to reread it a couple times lol


FiliaNox

I gave up as soon as I zoned out 😂


thekactuskween

Oh don’t worry I didn’t actually retain anything bahahaha


Beakker

These people and their damn word walls!


Anonynominous

They need to acquire a damn journal or Tumblr lol


dumdum_gutterslut

Kind of sounds like doctors know this isn’t an urgent issue?


fifiweebunkinz

That's what I was thinking.


tverofvulcan

Made sure to have tubes in the pic

Low_Ad_3139

Geez I saw parents in the ER a little over a week ago feeding their kids food, like burgers and pizza, while waiting to see if their kids needed surgery. Guarantee they will lie and say their kids haven’t eaten since they arrived. Uh, these things are necessary to prevent death. I don’t get lying and especially before a procedure. Happens way to frequently.


avenirlight

Doesn’t really sound like it’s precautions preventing it as much as her lack of immediate need? They definitely wouldn’t be okay with her not consuming food of any kind for two weeks, so there’s probably a reason that she isn’t being bumped up in the line to get her tube, and admitting that would *gasp* limit how much sympathy she can get.


Imahsfan

That’s legit terrifying and so sad


itsvickeh

Some context. ASLZ’s J tube needed replacing after the balloon burst. ASLZ claims gastroparesis and intestinal dysmotility.


Low_Ad_3139

Ok so it is a gj tube. I was wondering why she didn’t replace it herself. She’s still being overly dramatic. A lot of people with g and gj tubes still eat.


[deleted]

I'm sure this is out of your scope but how could they wait 14 days without feeding her?


2fixyou

Science Like Magic But Real


GetRightNYC

Maybe she should complain to the Munchie who wrote the post above this one. thats saying them delaying others isn't a big deal.


EZasSundayMorning

Highly doubt they are letting this person starve.


heyhey_harper

I don’t know if she’s in the US but *if* this were the case they would put in an NG/NJ or something. In no case would they just allow someone to starve. I used to work with eating disorders patients and if they refused oral intake for more than a couple days, they would restrain them, place an NG and run feed. So it’s hard to imagine this could be true IMO. Edit: the ED facility I worked at was inpatient, though I don’t think that detail makes much difference in my point


FireBeyond

I know, she expects us to believe that the medical staff are just like "It'll be 14 days. Sorry, you won't be able to get any nutrition until then. Oh well."


heyhey_harper

Yeah that just doesn’t add up. Our healthcare system is pretty awful but not to that point.


Low_Ad_3139

Or order TPN.


heyhey_harper

Exactly!


itsvickeh

ASLZ lives in the US. In VT, I believe.


aLonerDottieArebel

“So many doctors get caught up in the scientific part of shit” Ummm..who wants to tell them
