Questionable Ceviche

In the state of Virginia, there are many barriers to the involuntary hospitalization of adults. You may recall the highly publicized story of state senator Creigh Deeds, who brought his paranoid, delusional, and violent son to hospital under emergency custody order only to see him released without treatment when the order expired. His son nearly stabbed his father to death before killing himself.

Following this highly publicized tragedy, Virginia's emergency custody laws have been updated, making it easier for people in the throes of a mental health crisis to receive emergency treatment. In turn, this has caused hospital overcrowding. In a system where there aren't enough beds to treat people who are actively trying to harm themselves and others, Anna's slow, stubborn suicide via poop bag is just not a priority.

Anna is an adult, she does not want inpatient treatment for her eating disorder, and in Virginia, there are extremely strict requirements that must be met before a person can be involuntarily hospitalized for observation, let alone treatment. These are set by the legislature. Anna does not meet these requirements.

Mama Ginger - ahem - can't do shit.

We know Mama Ginger does not just let Anna do whatever she wants in the home, because Anna complains about living in Caesar's household and following Caesar's laws. Otherwise, we know very little about this situation, and everything we do know is filtered through Anna, who isan unreliable narrator at the best of times, and an outright liar at worst.

Opinions are divided over whether Anna's mother should kick her out, let her deteriorate, and then pursue guardianship status. This is something very few parents can bring themselves to do. There are not many resources available to Mama Ginger.
The lack of resources available to her mom is the most frustrating thing about this horrorcow. People in this thread like to give armchair advice about her mom needing to do XYZ thing to 'fix' or punish Anna without realizing how limited her options are. Most parents aren't going to kick out their chronically ill children to become homeless and die. Her piece of shit dad doesn't seem to be involved at all except to side with his manipulative daughter. They can't force her into inpatient care.

I think the low calorie foods in photos are a way of bargaining with Anna. Her ingesting something is better than her ingesting nothing, or worse, making a homemade potion crafted specifically to sicken herself. Her misbehavior to make her mom's life hell goes way beyond food. Her mom needs some kind of reward mechanism to encourage Anna to not leak shit all over the house while being a passive aggressive cunt. Even a small concession can go a long way in making her mom's quality of life a little better. Punishment and taking away privledges doesn't work on someone who will hospitalize themselves out of spite.
 

Zig Zag

I mean, your 23-year-old daughter has a bag of feces attached to her at all times, and all she wants to do is chug calorie-free goop. It'd be like a junkie strutting through her parents' house with a needle sticking out of her neck, announcing her intentions to do even more heroin and more sex work, the very things which gave her hep C and MRSA in the first place... but it'll totally work this time, guys.
Your analogy of a junkie is close and yet very far away. Parents are often the worst enablers in their childrens' addictions, and if you ask why they will tell you verbatim, "We don't want to do anything about [junkie] because we are afraid that if we stop helping, they will die." And they're right. They also tend to infantalize the addict, because it hurts to think of their child as an adult who is deliberately hurting them, it's easier to think of them as they were when they were a small child lashing out.

Parents can force junkies to say they "want "to go to rehab and then the next morning give them $20 for the bus and a pack of smokes, because they don't or can't understand that this person is going to use the money to buy drugs which they are using to kill themselves. Religious parents especially will see their junkie child as a test from God, or their personal punishment for the sins of their past. They will enable the child for an irrational amount of time because they know the child can't survive on their own (even when it's an adult child because their addiction keeps them dependent on the parents, way past the point of normalcy), and because it's a real-life trial of Job to deal with an unrepentant addict all day every day. Alcoholics Anonymous and all of its offshoots are also religious programs although they don't advertise this very much. So all of these family support groups also encourage the parents in this thinking to try and pray for Jesus to heal their wayward children.

I've seen religious parents continue to support, emotionally and monetarily, an adult child heroin addict even after the 6th trip to rehab, which had ended in getting kicked out of the program for stealing and hoarding pills. This meant they had the junkie living in their home for weeks, eventually shooting up so much random shit (including fucking allergy medicine whatastory.jpg) that they had a massive cyst on their arm at the injection site. After a nice week stay at the hospital, where they went into detox because of course they did, it was time for another lovely jaunt to rehab. This 7th time came to a sudden halt a few weeks before the program's intended end date, because the junkie was lying about attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings, and was instead meeting up with other people in the program to score drugs. Oh, I mean "they left because they missed their friends and family sooooo much," because that's the reason they fed their parents, who once again welcomed them back in with open arms.

Point 1: The parents were the worst enablers possible, and were deeply religious. Point 2: They knew their child had a major problem, but saw it as their cross to bear to care for and try to cure them or cast out the devil causing their child to act this way. Point 3: Like with Anna's sister, the family had 2 other totally normal adult children, who had long since moved away and were never involved as nonstop junkie drama had alienated them completely.

Another point: addicts are sneaky liars who will not hesitate to completely fuck over friends and loved ones to get their fix. Anna matches addict behavior to a T, as ED patients usually do, and she's inflicting all of that on her mother. At the same time, Anna's mother is only seeing and hearing what Anna wants to show and tell her. Since they sent Anna to ED rehab before, and she's getting treatment now, Anna's mother may also be under the impression that Anna is "cured" or at least getting better. Or she may be deliberately ignoring the warning signs, as the thought of her once-healthy and beautiful daughter deliberately killing herself is too disturbing. OR she may be aware of everything, and thinks of Anna and her eating disorder as her own personal cross to carry. She may think that it's her responsibility to God and her earthly burden to care for her unwell daughter. Who knows.

Edit: Almost forgot to add that there is plenty of narcissistic supply for enabler parents in the form of asspats from other religious parents. "Oh, you're so strong, caring for your kid even after..." Although this would force Earth Mom to go along with the Anna-so-sick scenario, I'm sure it gets her a nice amount of sympathy from other moms whenever Anna is mentioned.

The long and short of it is that Anna's parents are enabling her, and it's frustrating to see, but it makes sense why. They saw that when she lived on her own, she wouldn't eat enough to stay alive, and they're afraid that she will do it again. However, her behavior is annoying and stressful to deal with, so Earth Dad stays as far away as his conscience will allow him and Earth Mom has to bear the brunt of it.

Ballet dancer feet look ghastly. The closest I can think of to them is pig trotters in a butcher shop.
I agree. I've seen feet more fucked up just by regularly wearing ballet shoes (not pointe) and skates. Once you start with any toe pick work, there's bound to be some irritated skin at least. Some swelling, maybe blisters that can start bleeding. If done too often and your toes are squished by ballet shoes/skates, bunions start forming. someone said she has them, but nah,her feet look fine.

Examples:

I wonder if she sometimes regrets letting go of her hobbies. It must be hard to move and risk falling with a shit-filled bag attached to her body. If she had true passion for dance or skating, she would try to reverse the surgery. Unless she does that, I'm fully convinced she only held onto those activities because they fit her "fragile dainty girl" narrative. Which is sad. Ffs Anna.

Earth Mom will eventually have to take a leaf from Ashlich's mother and just shove her into long term care away from home.
Pretty much, or send her to some weird Christian rehab/treatment-type place (these definitely exist).

I don't mean to criticize Earth Mom. If anything, I think she deserves to be free of Anna and her shit-bag. Sadly, all of you are right in that it's devilishly hard to commit or otherwise intervene on a non-psychotic, non-homicidal ED patient. For any psych hospital, she's low priority (the worst she'll do is whine), AND an enormous financial and medical burden (needs intensive care, can't leave her alone with any severely mentally ill patients, who might tug at or play with her shit-bag, she might catch MRSA/some weird bug and wind up dying, costing them millions, etc).

Yeah, so it's either some Christian "retreat" (aka cater to her in a cabin for a few days and hope she comes out liking food), or the Path of Ashlich. Yikes.

In her Stories, Anna has shared an image of her crusty feet and crotch, appealing to her dedicated fanbase of creepy old men:
weirdthirsttrap.png

And to her business account, she has posted the first of her tips for smoother digestion. To nobody's surprise, it amounts to a minimization and justification of her own disordered eating habits:
digestionfiber1.pngdigestionfiber2.pngdigestionfiber3.png
Anna loves shitting, fears bloating, and has a long history of laxative abuse. Her Fit Vegan Ginger recipes relied heavily on low-calorie, high-fiber fillers, allowing her to eat a large volume of food - or "food" - without gaining weight. During her detox phase, she consumed vast quantities of "Doctor" Robert Morse's proprietary GI Broom supplement, as well as other stimulant and bulk-forming laxative preparations, damaging her colon in the process. Even after she was diagnosed with slow transit constipation, she continued to abuse laxatives.

But here, she cites a single preliminary study investigating the effects of dietary fiber on the symptoms of constipation on a small cohort of patients, specifically noting that people with slow transit constipation should refrain from consuming fiber to excess. This seems to be a page from the ED playbook, in which sufferers demonstrate a knowledge of what constitutes healthy behavior in an attempt to bamboozle others into believing that they engage in healthy behavior when, in fact, they do not.

So why has Anna suddenly turned against fiber?

She claims that she now prudently minimizes her fiber intake to avoid stoma blockage. In fact, a low fiber diet is only medically indicated for a short period following surgery. After that, ileostomy patients are urged to return to a normal diet. As long as fiber-containing foods are chewed thoroughly and consumed with adequate liquids, there's no medical reason to avoid them.

By limiting her fiber intake and consuming liquid to excess, Anna is able to exploit her surgically modified digestive tract to easily and conveniently purge through her stoma.

Stay tuned for another shitty tip tomorrow!

Earth Daddy is a piece of shit for not only coddling her but for fobbing off the actual heavy lifting on the mom, who is basically abused by the sociopathic Anna. Of course, he can only get away with this because she lets him, and Anna, pull all this bullshit.

The whole family is a mass of dysfunction, fucked up socio-sexual dynamics and even if no physical incest went on, it's one of the sickest families in existence.

She is also sharing images of green juice in the #livefoodlivebody tag:
View attachment 935874
So, what is this #livefoodlivebody thing?

Back in January 2018, when The Medical Medium was still Best Guru, Anna uploaded a youtube video entitled "Wellness Wednesday!: Do Veggie JUICES Slow Detox?!" In it, she endorsed books by a juicer salesman and in the next breath, admitted she had not even completely read them. The author lacked any medical credentials, but claimed to have cured himself of cancer by drinking a simple blend of apple and carrot juice back in the 1940s.

The back cover blurb on Live Foods, Live Bodies! reads, "So many people now find themselves overweight, addicted to harmful foods, and unhappy with their lives. Through the power of juice therapy, living foods, and positive thinking, Live Foods, Live Bodies! was designed to help you transform the person you are into the person you want to become! [...] A living-foods diet will truly change your life. You wouldn’t believe the stories we have heard about people who have adopted this lifestyle only to have their aches and pains, bowel and skin problems, and various health challenges disappear. They felt more alive and energetic than ever before, and this can be your story as well. You, too, can achieve optimal wellness, and live into your nineties with all your faculties intact."

This is exactly the same shit that destroyed her colon and brought her to death's door.

Goddammit, Anna.
Anna's pretty much an anti-endorser, if there's such a term. Anything she endorses is something people should avoid buying, lest they end up like her. If she was smart and way less egotistic, she can offer her services to a company so she'd shill the company's competitors on her IG, kinda like the protection racket mobsters did back then.

Anna: "That's a nice gluten-free shake you got there. Would be a shame if I plugged it on my IG!"
CEO: "We'll pay! We'll pay!"


Also, anna is an extremely passive aggressive person. Many of us have speculated about why she has such a deep anger towards her mom, none of us know for sure. We do know that when she is mad at her mom she sickens herself or makes a huge mess that her mom then has to deal with. Anna's mom is likely very afraid of what could happen, many mothers find it difficult to respond rationally to a threat of self harm from their child, and anna's dad tends to take his daughter's side in arguments and put even more pressure on her to be a doormat. I am fairly certain that the mother has been gaslit (genuinely) about what she is perceiving, and when anna dies she is going to get really angry at her dad for letting things get so out of control.
The wants-a-divorce-but-have-to-keep-up-Christian-appearances theorized earlier is most likely true. Though I have a running theory in my head that Anna may have some Electra complex going on, tried to act on it with Earth Dad once (remember the photo her dad took where she placed melons or some shit in front of her chest?), which pushed Earth Dad to just move to another congregation because it was getting weird. Could also explain Earth Dad's Hide The Pain Harold smile in her recent graduation photos. Of course, this is total speculation on my part and probably holds no water.

I am sure you will all be shocked to learn Anna's second tip for smoother digestion also involves laxatives. Here, Anna endorses the use of table salt as a hyperosmotic agent for shitting purposes:
digestionsalt1.pngdigestionsalt2.pngdigestionsalt3.png

Let's take a closer look at this bullshit, shall we? I have nothing better to do with my time, and apparently neither do you:

> ⭐7 DAYS TO SMOOTHER DIGESTION - DAY 2⭐ Salt 🧂 is an essential nutrient, and a needed addition to promote a healthy digestive system.

Dietary sodium, as obtained from table salt, is an essential nutrient required for many physiological processes including electrolyte homeostasis, nutrient absorption, maintenance of cell plasma volume, acid-base balance, transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, and many aspects of normal cell physiology. The term “table salt” refers to sodium chloride (NaCl). “Sodium” refers to dietary sodium. One gram of salt contains 390 milligrams of sodium, and the two terms should not be used interchangeably in discussions of human nutrition because it can lead to confusion and dosing errors.

> Our bodily fluids are ISOTONIC (same consistency and made of the same kind of solutes—salt and water) as SEA WATER...so clearly, we need quite a bit of salt to not only stay alive, but to ensure our digestive fluids are balanced enough so they can help break down our food, stimulate peristalsis, and move our stool through our GI tracts 👍🏻

"Doctor" Anna is making extremely basic errors in definitions and vocabulary. A solute is a substance dissolved in another substance, which is called the solvent. In a salt solution, water is the solvent and the salt is the solute. An isotonic solution has the same solute concentration as a reference solution, A hypotonic solution has a lower solute concentration relative to a reference solution, and a hypertonic solution has a higher solute concentration relative to a reference solution.

"Doctor" Anna
also knows jackshit about human biology. If you are a typical marine invertebrate, then sure - your body fluids are isotonic to seawater. But relative to human body fluids, seawater is hypertonic. Drinking seawater will make you dehydrated, which is why you should not do it. If you are a person lost at sea, you should instead drink the body fluids of marine vertebrates like fish, which are hypotonic to seawater and isotonic to yours.


> More often than not, people are getting TOO MUCH salt/sodium, due to the high (and ever increasing) consumption of processed foods containing MSG and refined salt. However, all of this salt-shaming has painted sodium and salt in a negative light...which has resulted in many health-conscious individuals avoiding it all together! Sodium and potassium have a unique relationship in cellular function and metabolism, and although the needed ratio is 1:4 sodium:potassium, sodium is still essential for bodily maintenance and overall health...

The average American diet comprises twice as much sodium as potassium, which is understood to be not-so-good for the heart and for general health. MSG contributes only about 1 to 2 percent of the total sodium contained in the average daily American diet. I literally have no idea where Anna got the notion that the ideal ratio of dietary sodium to dietary potassium is 1:4. Currently, there is no generally accepted recommended guideline for dietary Na/K ratio.

> ...and bowel movements (the chemical component, NaCl, sodium chloride, is actually a potent LAXATIVE!).

Always with the shitting. Drinking a salt solution that is hypertonic to your body fluids will indeed cause water to move from surrounding tissues into the bowel, due to osmotic pressure. This extra fluid stretches the intestines, which stimulates peristalsis and helps move poop along. Adding water to the solid waste in the colon can also help soften it so that it passes more easily.

However, drinking table salt dissolved in water may cause nausea, vomiting, cramping, bloating, dehydration, and - if it fails to make you shit - sodium overload. There are many other, safer saline laxative preparations readily available on the market. For more on the potential hazards of such salt water "cleanses," please feel free to read up on Jillian Burke-Epperly and her eponymous "
Jilly Juice."

> Adding a little pure salt (such as Celtic sea or Himalayan pink—both mineral salts rich in other nutrients) when your GI system is acting funky will help to promote healthy cellular function by allowing water (H2O) to enter into the cell, while also encouraging water to be taken into our GI tract, assisting the movement of food through it 🙌🏻 So while it’s NOT a great idea to dump refined, bleached salt (which is actually completely different than REAL salt, from a molecular and absorptive point of view) on everything you consume, it WOULD we wise to sprinkle a bit on your steamed veggies to help with hydration and digestion.

Celtic sea salt and Himalayan pink salt are each mostly sodium chloride, just like ordinary table salt. They contain trace amounts of other minerals like potassium, magnesium, and iron, but these quantities are so insignificant that they offer no additional health benefits.

From a dietary perspective, these salts are indistinguishable, but if you care about the people who produce the salt, there are important differences between them. Most pink "Himalayan" salt comes from the Khewra Salt Mine, which is located south of the Himalayas and is owned by the Pakistani government. Miners drill, blast, and excavate the salt by hand for very low wages, earning just $2.25 per ton. Celtic sea salt is hand-harvested from evaporated seawater in estuaries near the medieval town of Guérande, France by unionized workers who are fairly compensated for their labor and enjoy EU-mandated health and safety protections.

Anna does not seem to know or care about any of this, because she does not give a shit about people other than herself.

In round 3 of tips, Anna invokes "Traditional Chinese Medicine" to explain why she actually grew sicker on her ostensible "healing diet" of smoothies and other blended slops. In real life, her dietary regimen was nutritionally inadequate and obviously deficient in calories. Anna completely disregards these concerns, instead claiming that her delicate system could not handle so many "cooling" foods, per traditional Chinese medicine.

So, let's have a look at that claim:

Medicine, as traditionally practiced in China for thousands of years, was a heterogenous patchwork of folk wisdom, occult practices, classical texts, yin-yang five phases theory, received knowledge, and personal experience. Attempts at standardizing and institutionalizing medical education were largely unsuccessful until the Communist era.

Under Mao, there were very few Western-educated doctors in China, and access to medical care was woefully inadequate. In order to convince the Chinese populace that they actually had a different, better kind of medicine under his regime, Mao spearheaded propagandized reforms out of political necessity. This created "Traditional Chinese Medicine" as we know it today. First, he founded academies of "traditional Chinese medicine" where inconsistent classical texts and practices were replaced by standardized textbooks. These portrayed Chinese medicine as having always been a consistent, unbroken tradition of philosophy, theory, and practice, distinguished from Western medicine by its focus on "holism" and "preventative care."

I think we are all pretty familiar with how this scam works by now. If you go to your "holistic practitioner" with an acute medical issue, but they can't help you because their treatments are baseless - why, it's your own fault, really! You've fallen prey to a superficial, quick-fix allopathic mentality, lived an unhealthy life, and now you want a band-aid to paste over your symptoms so you can go back to your unhealthy ways. If you had been properly focused on building wellness all along, you would never have gotten sick in the first place. The problem is not that "holistic medicine" is ineffective - the problem is that you don't understand it.

The second part of Mao’s project was to capitalize on Western credulousness regarding "the wisdom of the Orient," promulgate sensational tales of Chinese medicine’s efficacy to an overseas audience, and use the ensuing foreign media coverage as domestic propaganda. This was wildly successful, as European and American seekers, disillusioned with their own spiritual traditions, eagerly seized on its promise of "ancient healing wisdom." As Western students and wellness-seekers were attracted to traditional Chinese medicine, their presence helped convince Chinese people that it was something worth studying. In modern China, "traditional Chinese medicine" is fully institutionalized, taught in universities, administered by the state, and incorporated into the state medical system.

tl;dr: "Traditional Chinese medicine" is a recent invention, deliberately created to exploit the human longing for miraculous solutions to intractable problems, and raised to prominence by one of the most powerful propaganda machines in history.

Unsurprisingly, Anna is just as stupid about TCM as she is about actual science. She does not do a good job explaining that TCM conceives of foods having intrinsic "heaty" or "cooling" natures that can be augmented or offset, but not fundamentally altered, by changing their physical temperature. Here, she claims that TEA is actually a COOLING beverage! But lightly oxidized teas, like green tea and some oolongs, are considered cooling, while fully oxidized black teas are considered "heaty." Even her bullshit is bullshit.

Anna says "numerous scholars and researchers have found proof of this digestion-slowing effect of cold foods and beverages," but fails to provide any citations and merely namedrops "Sue Brown, PhD." So, who is this person?

Susan E. Brown, PhD describes herself as a "medical anthropologist" and research associate at Syracuse University, with academic expertise pertaining to traditional healing practices in cultures throughout the world. She sells wellness consultation services and supplements via her website, betterbones.com, writes for women's publications, and will speak at your holistic health event for a fee.

Brown's credulousness regarding TCM suggests that she is not actually a very good anthropologist, and looking at her CV, she appears to have been denied tenure at Boston University early in her career, spending several decades leaning on her academic credentials and making a living in various aspects of the wellness industry. Her "Research Associate" status at Syracuse University is not an impressive academic credential; this designation merely acknowledges that she has a PhD and gives her library access. She has all the hallmarks of being yet another predatory quack.

In real life, there are some peer-reviewed studies claiming to demonstrate correlation between TCM's "cooling" foods and impaired digestion, but these involve small sample sizes and rely on patients self-reporting subjective experiences of digestion. There's no good science here.

But credit where credit is due - this is probably the best followthrough Anna has ever managed for any of her many promised "series." Let's see if she can keep it up for Day 4.

In her Stories, Anna has shared an image of her crusty feet and crotch, appealing to her dedicated fanbase of creepy old men:

And to her business account, she has posted the first of her tips for smoother digestion. To nobody's surprise, it amounts to a minimization and justification of her own disordered eating habits:

Anna loves shitting, fears bloating, and has a long history of laxative abuse. Her Fit Vegan Ginger recipes relied heavily on low-calorie, high-fiber fillers, allowing her to eat a large volume of food - or "food" - without gaining weight. During her detox phase, she consumed vast quantities of "Doctor" Robert Morse's proprietary GI Broom supplement, as well as other stimulant and bulk-forming laxative preparations, damaging her colon in the process. Even after she was diagnosed with slow transit constipation, she continued to abuse laxatives.

But here, she cites a single preliminary study investigating the effects of dietary fiber on the symptoms of constipation on a small cohort of patients, specifically noting that people with slow transit constipation should refrain from consuming fiber to excess. This seems to be a page from the ED playbook, in which sufferers demonstrate a knowledge of what constitutes healthy behavior in an attempt to bamboozle others into believing that they engage in healthy behavior when, in fact, they do not.

So why has Anna suddenly turned against fiber?

She claims that she now prudently minimizes her fiber intake to avoid stoma blockage. In fact, a low fiber diet is only medically indicated for a short period following surgery. After that, ileostomy patients are urged to return to a normal diet. As long as fiber-containing foods are chewed thoroughly and consumed with adequate liquids, there's no medical reason to avoid them.

By limiting her fiber intake and consuming liquid to excess, Anna is able to exploit her surgically modified digestive tract to easily and conveniently purge through her stoma.

Stay tuned for another shitty tip tomorrow!
So how has Anna managed to get quickly up to speed on how to purge via her stoma? Is it just a matter of doing the opposite of medical advice or is there a sick underground group of anorexics with shitbags who share tips? Given this is the Internet I fear the later.

I mean the teens that survived yesteryears pro-anna thinspo boards, and never recovered, had to end up somewhere. I could see a small dedicated group of insane women sharing tips on how best to starve and purge after their colon died.
