Please be mindful of our No blogging rule, this means that we do not discuss anything personal about ourselves and especially nothing medical related, thanks.


AshleysMirena

I don’t understand, if this isn’t the life she wanted and just complains about it, why did she put herself there? Or does she mistake the complaining as being something we would pity her for and give her money? She did this to herself, if she doesn’t like it then maybe there is still time to change. Also, is she complaining when she posts pictures high on drugs or is she showing off/bragging while high off her big score?


TakeMyTop

I feel like [especially with her and kelly] they go farther than they meant to, and ended up with permanent consequences they did not want. munchies don't usually just want to be sick. they want attention, sympathy, support etc and achieve that by faking, or inducing, illness/injury


SaltySaxKelly

im new here, i have combed her Tik Tok and rolled my eyes heavily and think shes grifting, how did she put herself in there though? i cant find that bit of info! xx

Well when you rub doo doo into your wounds that happens


ofmonstersandmoops

Imagine going in for surgery, minding your own business, and you look over in the bed next to yours to find Paige repeatedly making pitiful faces at the camera.


Capable_Friendship95

And the first thing she did when it was posted was hopping straight to her comment section to inform everyone whose "been asking how they can help" that her wishlist is in her bio.


spiritkittykat

They let her get surgery with metal body jewelry in? Don’t they make you remove that stuff?


[deleted]

You’re supposed to remove all body jewelry before surgery. OR replace it with non-metal jewelry (glass is recommended.) Her microdermal wouldn’t be able to be removed, because it’s basically a one point piercing. The only way to remove it would mean it was permanently gone. Her eyebrow jewelry should be removed. But it’s possible she put up enough of a fuss or claimed she couldn’t remove it that they just covered it with tape. The main issue with body jewelry is that they use electrocautery to seal blood vessels and it can create an electrical arc, leading to mild or severe burns.


AnonymousMayday

Not always unless it’s in the way but usually they put micropore tape over them


kingpizzarat

Medical scheduler here. Pre-op for patients normally lasts an hour- 1.5hr at least from the appts I’ve seen in my career unless it’s a serious trauma. Med staff feel free to jump in

EvilCosmicSphere

I can imagine the staff is very aware of the munching. I don't think they rush anything without exhaustive tests or consideration.


Younicron

She must look so strange holding her phone up to photograph/film herself looking vacantly and pitiably into space like that. What a strange person.


AnastasiaNo70

This is 100% faked. She just took a series of photos and wrote a story. I find her to be one of the more pathetic munchies. It’s just cringe.


lsb68

Literally this. It just looks like snapped a few photos during a trip with transporter to go get a routine x-ray / CT scan or whatever and she cooked up all of that narrative & bullshit to go with it.


TenaciousHearts

She looks high as fuck


vengefulbeavergod

So...Tuesday?


Wethepeople1776__

Everything is “severe” with these people


sheighbird29

I love their choice of hashtags lol

I have a SEVERE Charlie’s horse😔. Wah wah wah gofundme. Same stuff, new day. They’re all so predictable


vengefulbeavergod

Be sure to post your Amazon wish list!


Charming-Office-8209

She is back online begging for amazon gifts for Christmas on a post that says she is truly terrified


AggravatingVanilla19

She’s such a terrible actress 🙄 she doesn’t seem scared at all, just dumb.


DirectionShort6660

Surgery for cellulitis, eh 🧐


Ketake

Just in case you don't know, I'm sorry if you do. Cellulitis is not lumpy thighs, it's a bacterial skin infection that sometime do require surgery


kvossera

cellulite is lumpy thighs. Cellulitis is a bacterial skin infection. I get that it sounds the same but it’s totally different.


Confident-Choice4641

Who takes these pics?! Does she ask a nurse to take her pic as she is being put out?! Or better yet, she might not be getting put out


vegemitebikkie

Why does she always have a shocked looked on her face? Like oh! The horror! Another infection you say? How could this be?!


Adept_Aspect_7678

My hip would be red and sore too if I laid in bed my whole life


DirectionShort6660

THIS ⬆️


peepeehalpert_

How does she keep getting all of these infections? Why the nose hose?


911lala

Hmm any infection can usually be prevented by basics in hygiene… like warm soapy water… /s but seriously, it has to be deliberate at this point. She needs mental help. Nose hose is latest aesthetic…


Heyitsemmz

They let her have her phone in theatre?


Slytherin-elite

Anestesia again!? Lmao WHAT


jesusijustneedaname

Hashtagging all of your prior illnesses is such a desperate cry for attention. How are they not embarrassed fr


cousin_of_dragons

Drugs are a helluva drug


kuesva

if she could, she would 100% share photos of herself while being under general anesthesia


madmarzii

i dont see how she has hundreds if not thousands of people in her comments „commending her bravery“ and sending love and hugs and support. are they blind??? it reminds me of hope all over again, people blindly sending money and buying her things and offering her support when she should be off social media entirely. just gives her room to freely grift.


dbnole

Would they not make your remove an eyebrow ring for surgery?


[deleted]

[удалено]


DirectionShort6660

They will tape down eyebrow piercings, tho


Independent-Ad-8258

Of course it's severe cellulitis 🙄


cecincda

"...this morning the dr (sic) and the nurse realised (sic) i have major redness and swelling on my other hip...its so incredibly painful..." They *realized* it that morning? Why on earth would they not have known about it earlier by way of her *telling them*? And how long has it taken to reach this oh-so painful infection, requiring surgery. A very quick one, mind you. *And* you're allowed to take pics for the 'gram the whole time! She's a spEcHul patient.


vengefulbeavergod

I think she's in AUS. That's a proper spelling of realize there, and in the UK.


CatAteRoger

She’s in New Zealand :)


vengefulbeavergod

OH NO! I apologize to any Kiwis I may have offended


ElleRyder

You don't get to bring your phone to OR. Also, her eyebrow piercing would be covered/taped over. You don't go from OR back to your room - PACU is a thing. The holes in her story are big enough to drive a truck through....


PeridotWriter

What's worse than her stupid faces are the fact that she's so "drugged up" but she can coherently open the app, pose for the picture, take it, write a caption and then upload it. Also apparently she has her phone right by her immediately after she wakes up from surgery because for some reason, her surgeons would allow it. 🙄


SkywardHope

Yes, I love taking photos when super nauseous and vomiting. /s


EndlesslyMeh

Such a tragic pitiful existence. And it’s all her own doing. Shameful.


AggravatingVanilla19

She might be getting some sh*t from her Amazon wish list or even money, but someone has to tell this woman she’s not getting an Oscar for her bad acting. It’s so cringey 😑


dreamfig

Paige is going to kill herself for attention and to spite her family.


pygyjjg

Man, I read her mom's forum posts last night. I feel so bad for her family and I honestly don't see Paige getting out of this alive -- based on her lengthy history. It's so incredibly sad, but there's absolutely nothing anyone can do for her or any munchie if they don't want help.


gingerghoul15

Ugh, I can’t find her post anywhere. I went to the farm but it seems like site is down at the moment. Could you send it to me maybe?


artsy-fartsy-smartsy

Can you share a link?


bluebirdmorning

“The meds kicking in” photo. Can’t keep her eyes open but she can take a picture. Uh huh.


LaLaIsBlessed

So why is her eyebrow ring taped down in slide 2 but not in slide 4? 🙄


ItsNotLigma

Gotta love how there's tape over her piercings as she's waiting to be wheeled to the OR, but there isn't any tape when the alleged pre-op med cocktail kicks in nor isn't any tape when the alleged surgery is over and she's being sent back to her room.


Nuclear_Sister

Amazing that even when she's out of it on a cocktail of drugs she's still able to remember to make videos about how extremely sick she is.


blueberrycranberry

I've noticed she seems to have her phone and posting pretty fast in situations many wouldn't have their phone there with them. There was another post where she 'just came around' and it just seems suss. Either exaggerated or fabricated I guess?


AnastasiaNo70

She’s 100% making shit up.


Confident-Choice4641

Yes! You don't take your phone in the OR with you, you're lucky if they let you keep a hair tie with you.


TheCounsellingGamer

In a lot of the videos she's suggesting that she's still in the recovery area. I can't imagine any hospital allowing phones in the recovery area, for a multitude of reasons. For one, there would be a high likelihood that the phone may get damaged or lost (most hospitals have you keep your personal belongings either in a secure place or with loved ones, to prevent them being lost). Most importantly, allowing people to have phones could violate other patients privacy. Recovery areas are often open plan, at least that's what they're like where I live. It makes it easier for staff to keep an eye on everyone and assistance can be given quickly if needed. Other patients wouldn't have consented to being on camera. I don't think many people would be comfortable being in someone else's video, when they're coming round from anesthesia.


tolerphie

TLC style, re-enacted for the cameras.


taphappy52

yeah not only where ppl wouldn’t have their phones allowed with them, but most ppl would be way too out of it to even remember they had a phone


AnastasiaNo70

This is absolutely true.


WhinyTentCoyote

They don’t normally start giving IV anesthesia until the patient is in the OR. There wouldn’t be a friend or relative in the OR to take that pic of “the meds kicking in.” She literally just pointed the camera and closed her eyes for the shot.


Fun_Blueberry_2766

It’s the MRSA hashtag for me


lisak399

So let me take this picture of my eyes rolling behind my head now.


BrooklynJewishMom

Girl has no one else to film her so she’s her own camera crew to capture all the pitiful photos


tia2181

They would have to see the change in attitude needed to portray her seriously sick persona vs the recovering from self inflicted issues person. No one would be happy to see the visual changes in appearance.


CommandaarMandaar

I can't stand the way she tries to make selfies look like candids, like someone else just happened to snap a pic of her as she was looking away wistfully, or right as the meds are kicking in. Selfies don't work like that, you can't catch yourself off guard. Edited to fix typo.


musack3d

I agree. it's very 'Bae caught me sleeping'-esque


_Thoth

I just wanna know how she had her phone on the way down to the OR and back. We don’t let people bring belongings with them. They leave them in the hospital room or with family or in a belongings bag given back after recovering. So OTT.


nicunurse333

Where I work, you cannot take any personal belongings going to the OR. Unless she has family or friends to hold on to it. Otherwise, hospital security locks it up. I highly doubt the nurses in recovery room are going to drop what they are doing to retrieve her phone.


AnastasiaNo70

Not even glasses!


bub-a-lub

Clearly the phone can’t be detached from her hand so they obviously just put a bit of tape on it and let it in


HeartShapedSea

What is her status as an adult? I saw someone say she's been in & out of group homes and that discharging her before treatment finishes is complicated by this. I'm just wondering, does she have some sort of state guardianship? I'm not really familiar with her background but we had some Paiges when I worked in psych & almost all of them had a guardian if they had no responsible family to continue overseeing them. Just curious about her family history/background.


pygyjjg

She is an adult. 24 iirc. Cut off from her family due to her munching and grnersl toxicity + refusal to get help. I recommend looking up "Paige mom munchausen" on google to find a history of her mom's heartbreaking documentation of earlier struggles on a forum.


LaLaIsBlessed

She has a relationship with her Dad and sister I’ve seen from recent posts. Her mom no. I’m not sure of her status though or what her situation truly is. I’m not sure if anyone does. She never leaves this “hospital.” She called it hospice for a long time and I believe she’s in the same facility but has stopped calling it hospice.


Dramatic-Pause4900

On her TikTok from yesterday she says she's going to be alone for Xmas, and someone asks where her family is and she said she cut them all off except for her sister. So maybe her dad has finally wised up too


AshleysMirena

Already grifting Christmas? She could have easily grifted thanksgiving, even in another country. At least, her attempts would have been amusing and enraging. I am surprised she didn’t even try.


HairFlipBye

How does she have her phone while she’s being wheeled back to her room? This is sus


AnastasiaNo70

Because she just took pics and made up a story.


RaniPhoenix

Again she looks healthy. Pink skin, clear eyes.


glittergirl349

no idea i just don’t know how her and anelise get these pics and videos of procedures or hospital staff and don’t get in trouble. there’s no way nurses haven’t found these subjects


kvossera

Yeah some antibiotics can cause intense nausea and vomiting. Maybe if she didn’t try to infect her own wounds she wouldn’t be in this condition.


tia2181

Lots of them do, standard side effects vs unusual ones.


kiwikristina

Oh boy the “meds kicking in” photo is so cringey


LacrimalBone

I think my brain protected me from the cringe cuz I missed that one in my first swipe through 🥲


Grave_Girl

Oh, I thought that was supposed to be the medical PTSD photo. My bad.


zitpop

Let me cross my eyes real quick


Designer-Rent9761

They weren't even crossed, they were rolled in the back of her head


zitpop

🤣😂


SnooDingos533

Im confused why she was rushed to surgery in 30 minutes when standard treatment is antibiotics. Either her doctors love cutting this girl open or Paige is a great actress and surgery didn’t actually happen Source: I’m a nurse. Actual source: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/cellulitis/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20370766 Another one: https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/15071-cellulitis ETA: surgery can be performed for cellulitis but it is extremely rare and would be done if antibiotics aren’t working.


AshleysMirena

Maybe “surgery” was actually very simple removal of dead tissue and somebody is just very much exaggerating their story for gifts and sympathy.


WittyDisk3524

Could they have taken her for an X-ray and not surgery? 🤷🏼‍♀️


nicunurse333

🙌


rottweilermama

And even if they did do an incision and drainage or washout, with the NZ health system how it is currently there’s no way she would be rushed down to theatre for it within 30 minutes like she claims.


lilmiscantberong

I can’t see where it would be beneficial to cut into someone with cellulitis, wouldn’t that just give the infection another avenue to travel and create sepsis?


SnooDingos533

It’s only used for extreme cases when antibiotics are not working. Surgeons basically go in and scrape the infection out. It’s called debridement. In Paige’s case they are so unlikely to do surgery considering she just had surgery so her risks go up every time.


Classic_Computer262

Very good point. Really none of the pictures at all show anything happening other than her lying on a bed that was also in an elevator at one point. She literally could have just asked to be taken down for fresh air or a snack she would pretend she was only getting to just stare at longingly.


glittergirl349

i’m gonna go with she never went to surgery. it’s a lie. she lies often….


SnooDingos533

That’s what I’m thinking. It’s honestly mind blowing with her


Beautifuleyes917

Those bacteria are getting more and more resistant and she’s about to really find out what they’re capable of. Sometimes the only solution is to physically cut out the infected tissue before it’s out of control. There’s a tipping point and she’s reached it.


FiliaNox

Is that what this ‘surgery’ could be? They had to hack pieces out? Everything is ‘surgery’ to them. If they get moved to another room for testing, it’s surgery! It’s wild Idk how they’re letting her have her posting pics like this


iwrotethisletter

Well, AFAIK she lost two fingers already because of infection. Still didn't stop her from more fucking around and finding out.


RinaPug

Two? I thought it was only one!


iwrotethisletter

I'm actually unsure right now if it was one or two but even one might have been a FAFO moment for her if she wasn't so deep in the munchie game.


Grave_Girl

Well the problem is she liked what she found. No one can deny you're sick when you have amputations.


MashedPotato84

Yeah, at this point I don't think she cares about the consequences. She's a really sad case, it wouldn't surprise me if she ended up losing her life or doing significant damage to herself, but she won't stop.


iwrotethisletter

Possibly, though I sometimes think she only has "positive" (for lack of a better word) consequences on her mind like getting attention on social media and maybe items from her Amazon wishlist while she ignores potential serious consequences up to her actions costing her her life.


CatAteRoger

WTH? 30 mins notice to be rushed off to surgery and her first thought is documenting it and publishing to TT? Really says a lot!!


ThillyGooths

Lmao yep, amazed how she remembered to take some weird “I want some candid video but I don’t have any loved ones so I have to take it myself” video during all the chaos before this very scary 100% real rushed surgery that she *DEEEFINITELY* had. Man, that surgery **100% definitely happened**. That’s for sure!


shiningonthesea

And they let her take her phone in?


WonderlustHeart

Surgical nurse here… it was NOT 30 minutes. 30 minutes is the time we get told an emergency (like getting shot) is coming to in surgery room time. Crock of BS


Old-Rub5265

Right??


Ill-Pomegranate2857

Strong IV Meds, severe pain & a fast preparation for a surgery procedure & she still has time to take selfies & update the world. Boy, how does she do it 🙄


glittergirl349

don’t they take your phone in pre op. like…


tia2181

typically even a struggle to get glasses back.. phones not a priority, they would want her resting if just out of surgery.


phoenix762

It probably depends. Usually, they will take your phone and any other things, watch, jewelry, etc and lock it up along with your clothes, etc. I think sometimes they will let you hold on to your phone until it’s time to take you to the OR. Probably depends on the nurses❤️


glittergirl349

where i’m from pre op is where you are transported on the stretchers and it’s the place they wheel you from the OR’s. and post surgery it’s known as PACU. maybe just me


CatAteRoger

Hang on I’m thinking of the anaesthetics room before theatre, not the pre op waiting area


puhleazwashyourhands

Here, you can have your phone during preop-basically, you give it to them/put it In your belongings bag just before they wheel you down to the operating room


CatAteRoger

I wouldn’t think a phone would make it that far?


glittergirl349

ohhh my bad sorry


CatAteRoger

I could be wrong


glittergirl349

i have no idea lol don’t take me as a reliable source


CatAteRoger

And get that exact moments the meds kicked in as a bonus pity shot 🙄
