RE: GIMME THE SKINNY

That situation is fucked up. Her hubby has more balls than I do, I would have kicked her to the curb long ago. Dealing with an addicted or mentally ill significant other is fucking hard and can be horrifying. Took me 2 years to pull the trigger on the last one to make the cut and it was fucking hard.
That chick is going to die, I am shocked she is even alive now, 50 lbs? Jesus

Six, I feel badly for the husband. He gave her every opportunity to eat. Each time he tried to take her out, this is the only place she wanted to go.

You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

Money Raised -- Treatment Underway

The GoFundMe page has exceeded $120,000 in donations.

Initially, Farrokh, who lives in San Clemente, California, hoped to raise enough money for treatment at the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at the Denver Health Medical Center. But, her doctor doesn't think she's strong enough for the travel, so some of the money will be used to set up a treatment center at her home until she can be moved.

“My doctor wants me to stay here (in California) and is bringing the hospital basically to my bedside,” Farrokh said Friday. “I’ll have a doctor, a registered nurse, therapist and other specialist treat me from home. We are trying to build up to that point to travel to a specialized treatment center like Denver Health.”

Dr. Tim Walsh, an eating disorder specialist at New York State Psychiatric institute at Columbia University, said that generally refeeding is effective, but for someone so ill, it would need to be done at an experienced facility. Walsh, who has not treated Farrokh, said few medical facilities have the expertise to treat a case such as hers.

Medical treatment for starvation and psychological support are the two issues that need to be immediately addressed during treatment for severe anorexia nervosa, he said. “In treatment, first the calorie intake must be increased. It must be done very gradually and carefully so a patient doesn’t experience the complications that can occur during refeeding. One of the main complications of refeeding is cardiac-related, including heart failure, which can be fatal,” Walsh said.

Farrokh said she will slowly increase her calorie intake — as small as 25 calories per day. “What people don’t understand is I can’t just eat a cheeseburger because it could kill me,” she said.

Rachael's story and pics inspired one girl with Bulimia to pull her head from the toilet and seek help.

Farrokh said she knows her time is limited and without the money and help she’s received, she will lose the battle.

The starving people in Ethiopia and Bangladesh have more meat on their bones then this poor lost sole!

Most likely she will die, it's surprising her body has not already just "shut down"!

RE: GIMME THE SKINNY

Having seen some of this (not near so bad), it's amazing what the body does in an effort to save itself. Her heart is barely beating because it HAS to slow way down to function at all. You grow hair (lanugo) in all kinds of strange places (your face, stomach) to try to keep yourself warm. Every organ in that woman's body is suffering. She can't shit either because even if she HAD any poop in there her body would suck it dry for every bit of nourishment (at which point it would be the consistency of brick). As I said up thread, a gradual refeeding along with some light intravenous...maybe she could survive this. Despite how skinny she is, her veins are probably near invisible at this point. They'll have a hell of a time just getting her hooked up. Horrible.

RE: GIMME THE SKINNY

I was curious to see how Rachael Farrokh from the OP story was doing today and feared she might be dead. She's alive.

And, though she is still recuperating from the trauma her body has been through, she and her husband are now activists for eating disorders.





Amazing recovery.

That's ah-mazing! She looks so much better, not as good as she did before it all started but her progress is remarkable!

RE: GIMME THE SKINNY

It really is amazing.

I expected her to be dead or barely hanging on, but she looks normal and pretty healthy now after a lot of mental and physical rehab. Not cheap.

Sometimes GoFundMe is truly a great thing.
