    Those among us that have been this sick for an extended period likely have long since reconsidered wellness advice from most everybody.

    I cannot think of a single expert, especially world-renowned medical researchers/clinicians, as well as medical institutions like the CDC and NHS, whose advice I would not do due diligence on before tentatively following it, if at all.

    What an amateur. She should have promised big healthcare savings, gotten funding for a large unblinded subjective RCT, switch outcomes and then publish in The Lancet.

    Women's Weekly opined that maybe she has an illness that causes her to fake illness. :rolleyes:

    Did they really have to go there?

    Why can't she just be a greedy and/or attention seeking self-serving scam artist who doesn't care about harming other people?

    I find it immensely unhelpful to psychologise everything.

    Not just wellness advice but any kind of advice at all except maybe how to scam gullible people.

    How would one test whether it was a fake illness which caused her to fake illness?

    And then send to the fake fake fake illness therapist for some fake fake fake fake treatment. One for Trudie, I think.

    Thats a quadruple negative, does that make it real real or fake fake?
