There is a person on the EF forum who is definately faking her epilepsy - claims to have been evaluated for brain surgery due to complex partial seizures 3x but has no clue what a postictal state is, and insists that it isn't possible for anyone to have postictal behavior if someone mentions it and explains what it is, Had her SSD approved sometime between 8 pm on a saturday night and 3 am on a sunday morning, (immediatley after her initial SSD denial story was debunked because of its impossibility), routinely berates photosensitive epileptics and says photosensitive people should have their seizure triggers ignored in designing epilepsy sites/forums, unless someone points out how lucky she is because she isn't photosensitive - then she is so photosensitive she can't go outside in daytime, though she works in a garden for several hours a day.
But the main problem with her, is she is constantly lying about wellknown seizures and giving people bad medical advice, using her epilepsy as the reason.If you mention diet, she'll tell you to eat a lot of soy and reduce your fat intake to stop seizures, etc. She seems to get her kicks from telling people to do things she knows will cause seizures, considering she never once gives out accurate knowledge in regards to epilepsy (even someone makin wild guesses would hit on the truth occasionally). She'll keep on posting her lies in the forum until someone posts all kinds of documented proof she can't ignore, then she turns to another thread and continues the lies there
I've my suspicious that she may not be manchausens as much as someone faking in order to engage in hostile attacks on the site, because she becomes the most anti-photosensitive right about a week before the flashing attacks occur. And she is very vocal about how the forum should not do anything to either disable flashing images, or allow users to do so themselves (She's even went so far as to once post that "no one cares about photosensitive people" and "they [photosensitive] people don't matter."
