Exposure therapy is used for a lot of anxiety/panic issues. Like say you had a fear of the dentist. The therapist might have you handle dental tools to start, measure your reaction, sit with your discomfort until you calm down and relax. Repeat until a step up, when they might have you sit in a dental lobby for a few minutes at a time, feel the stress, and relax. Amber doesn't do discomfort, so she knows this won't work for her.

I am somewhat familiar, I have a masters in forensic science and a BA in criminology. We have to take some core classes regarding child psychology and child crime so repression and immersion theory comes up a little bit in these topics. I am always skeptical when “repressed memory” is brought up, especially when it comes to being molested as a child through exposure/immersion therapy. 99% of the time, unless you have been drugged, you will have what is called a “flash bulb” memory of the incident. Children who are molested will be able to tell you exactly what time of day it was, the date, what the weather was like what they were wearing and what color it was what the molester was wearing sometimes things even as detailed as how many lights are on in the room and if there are any noises like a TV or something in the background as well as smells. It is seared into their memory. Not saying immersion therapy is complete bullshit it can be beneficial in some areas but it also can create false memories of something that didn’t happen do I think Amber Lynn was molested when she was a kid, no I don’t.

Exactly. Rape victims (unless they were drugged/passed out, the same. And they're not going to talk about every other video, either. Besides, immersion therapy is more for anxiety disorders like agoraphobia and the like. This whole thing is bullshit, from the original video to Big Al's crocodile tears over it. Some people have not got the memo that Big Al's a narc, which not only cannot be cured, but results in her dismissing advice, professional or not, because she knows "what works for" her. The no doubt well-meaning folks who keep doing this shit need to recognize a lost cause and move on. Unless, of course, they want to put a guaranteed jackpot of a video up, in which case I say rock on with it and get that coin.

Well Abbey didn't help Amberlynn much. She essentially gave her the go-ahead to keep doing her "reasonable" mukbangs and to blame all of the haters whether she meant to or not. I suppose we of all people should be thanking Abbey for the entertainment this will bring.

She's so fucking dumb especially during that part about inpatient. She's like "they don't help you lose weight, they just treat the binge eating disorder." Like don't you think your BED is causing all the weight gain dumbass?? DON'T YOU THINK MAYBE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED ???
Is SHE the 6000 dollar BED that she purchased? And can't use? How ironic.

She's never binged in front of someone??? She's guilt tripped Becky into driving her to the fucking store to binge, yet she supposedly scoffs it down in private? Fuck off. You really are trying to echo the typical eating disorder habits, you're such a bad liar.
[....]

The comatose butler doesn't count, even if Becks was in the same room at the time (which is doubtful). Amber hardly views her as a person as it is.

[...]
She needs to do more Tik Tok challenges, cause nobody's buying what she's selling here. And the few that are, have NO idea who they're watching and sympathizing with.

I would be really interested to see Amber and Becky try the Target challenge that was popular on TikTok not too long ago. Watching Amber trying to figure out Becky's favorite drink, snack, color, etc would show how little she knows about a partner she supposedly loves. Though, let's be honest, Becky would just get a half dozen stupid graphic t-shirts and pretend to coo over them to placate the beast.

So, asking for a friend who's too fat to log in here, if somebody was drugged with things like LSD and scopolamine and got their memories back in a consistent, visceral, with the body reacting fashion when on similar drugs (same mind state) and had never discussed this with a therapist and the memories were pretty consist but more being revealed over ten years and that person remembered some of those memories from a looking at their self, disassociated perspective, and some from the perspective of their own eyes, would that person be a bean bag in a hurry, or a true death fat, or bolth? What if Amber was drugged or made to disassociate? The sickos know all about that type of thing if they are really invested in getting away with what they are doing. They do weird shit like wear santa masks and tell u different memories about it to brainwash you. (Santa did not sperg my friend, I'm just in the xmas spirit here with my Lynnmas candle burning, pure lard, smells like dirty mattress and Mrs. Dash. I hope the chuckles excuse the questioning. I bow out now. Seriously though don't we all come here to figure out what the fuck is happening on the fringes of the human race?

With the specific issues that Amber has (compulsive shopping, compulsive overeating), exposure therapy would mean working her slowly up to taking trips to stores where she normally goes hog wild spending just to browse, and keeping food around herself that she has to see but not eat, or eat only controlled portions. Based on some of the things she has said since going to the newest "weightloss specialist" in Lexington, I believe she thinks her supposed CSA is the source of all her mentuls and therefore the only thing she needs to work on, which is why she immediately dismissed the idea of exposure therapy. What she really needs to work on is exactly how you phrased it: learning to sit with discomfort, and she wouldn't be able to handle it at all.

I downloaded it and watched it double speed as that was the only way to watch this crap. She didn't agree with some of the things that were being said about BED. She knows what's best for her. People have reached out to her previously who know what they are talking about and she has given up on all of them. She doesn't see her 'journey' as a process of recovery as that would meean she would have to put effort into it and she refuses to do it.

A huge % of people her weight don't succeed in their journey she is fucked.
