Her entire house looks like the room of an 8 year old ...

her most recent video about "being anorexic now" is super cringey, especially all the "exercising" she does in it and the part where she has a tantrum & fucks up her living room lol. I'm so tired of her victim mentality, she's never gonna do anything with her life & will probably never fully recover because of it, and it's SO incredibly detrimental to her young impressionable viewers.

Super cringey and problematic, I agree. I found her through the "day in the life of a bulimic" video, which was also somewhat cringey, but also very real and powerful because...you know...she IS bulimic. I don't think she was every really anorexic. EDNOS/OSFED, maybe, sure...

It really bothers me when people discount the fact that being underweight is really an important criteria for anorexia. I'm sorry, but being underweight has both physical and mental effects that make it a very different disease. She has never even been underweight, it seems, so I don't know who she thinks she is claiming that she could possibly understand what it is to be anorexic, because the effects of being medically underweight are a huge part of it. And I'm speaking as someone who has been in both places. No one is saying that EDNOS/OSFED is any "better" or that it can't turn into anorexia...many disease have overlapping symptoms and develop co-morbidities over time. There is simply no such thing as an "overweight anorexic."

For someone who claims to be educational, it’s pretty ignorant of Shanny to say she’s anoretic when she isn’t. She invalidates people with the actual disorder, and even invalidates her own disorder. That entire video was a cringe fest and not at all a glimpse into actual anorexia.
To start off, a person can have anorexic tendencies, but I don’t even think you can be diagnosed if you aren’t at or under 17.5 BMI? I honestly don’t think someone who is overweight can be diagnosed as anoretic, even if they show all the other symptoms. I’m not a doctor, so who knows. Maybe I’m wildly incorrect, but I don’t think so.
And maybe I’m behind the times and old fashioned, but it would be like someone saying they have cancer when they had a mole removed, or even saying you’re bulimic when you purged one time.
It just makes me think Shanny isn’t getting the attention she wants from her bulimic label anymore, so she’s switching up “brands”.
I honestly feel bad speculating like this, but her video truly upset me. To be honest, I stopped watching her a long time ago so maybe she already has - but she needs to get help and to stop self diagnosing.

I wouldnt recommend her channel to anyone i know with an ED. This channel enables the behavior . How do you expect to get recovery tips from someone who isnt recovered herself ?AND no credentials. i dont know if it was the disorder or herself that made her become a very manipulative person .She throws giant pity parties when she talks about comments that dont agree with her. If people judge you on the internet by content YOU put out , that is YOUR responsibility . This is a public platform . Instead of addressing the random trolls here and there , how about you address the people actually giving you critique.

This situation reminds me of Eugenia Cooney in the way that she gains attention and identity from her dysfunction .Girl how are you going to make a fan base about your mental disease ? Make a seperate channel if you want "Shanny FANnys" . Your life revolves around your ED . I have more issues with her but im gonna cut it short right here .

I don't think her channel is harmful for other people .. she's often a sobbing mess and she certainly doesn't glamorize her eating disorder. . just watch the video of her taking her dentures out to show how she has zero teeth left because she puked until they dissolved. . .that is not glamour. That is cold hard reality.

I think her channel is harmful to herself. She has convinced herself that her channel is "therapy" because she talks to the camera and sometimes people write insightful comments. But it's not therapy, not even close. There is a reason therapists go through decades of school and training. There is a reason that people go to therapists for years. It's great to talk to friends and family and your husband, but it does not take the place of professional help.

Similar to Eugenia Cooney, Shanny's entire YouTube identity revolves around never getting better. People log in for their daily dose of horror and tears. Plus people leave comments on her videos that would chip away at the soul of even the most healthy and confident person and the damage they could do to someone as fragile as Shanny is just atrocious.

I'm also about 99% sure her husband is gay and using his marriage to a major damage case who can't have sex with him as a cover. He's more like a nurse maid than anything else. He's clearly a good person, but that just makes me sad. 2 people crumbling under the weight of oppressive religious guilt.

So seems like she has pretty much abandoned Youtube...in her sporadically-uploaded videos it seems to be because of marital issues? Does anyone who follows her on IG have better insights?

All that's on her instagram story is obnoxious singing, and more victim mentality. She took a break from youtube because people were starting to see through her bs. You know that if "marital issues" was really the main focus her shanny fannys would be hearing every detail because, after all, according to her they're the only things keeping her sane :roll:

She's never gonna get better. She has regressed to age 6 or so. She's a little kindergartener with her little bottle of Pedialyte laying in bed waiting for snack time and play time and bed. And she likes it. She likes being the sick little girl. I bet her husband reads her stories and helps her wipe her wee-wee when she's feeling extra regressed. Her entire YouTube schtick is to catifish her viewers with "I'm getting better" stories and then to crash .. hard. I don't think she crashes on purpose, but I also don't think she really wants to get better. Being a sick little girl is all that she thinks she's good for I guess.

She's just sorta .. permanently rattled from the sexual abuse she suffered. It's really horrible.

I guess if her husband wants to support that . . that's his business. I wouldn't want to be with a woman who still has the mind and emotions of a 6yo, but if he wants to be her enabling daddy for the rest of his life. . .yikes.

Her newest video reacting to the news of Colleen Ballinger’s pregnancy is... a lot.

I get being happy for a youtuber you watch and find inspirational, even being emotional. But all that talk coming from an adult of there being a connection between them, that she helped her more than her husband even could, seeing her as a big sister when they don’t know each other at all? Maybe I’m being insensitive, but that can’t be healthy. Then she cries at the end to her husband over the phone that she wants a baby. Which, I hope for her own sake she tries to be her best self and be healthy physically and mentally bc I believe she has wanted children for awhile, but it really concerns me that she may compare herself to Colleen and things can take a big downturn if she cannot get to that state.

The Colleen video creeped me out, too. I feel like Colleen has probably heard about her/seen one of her videos about her at this point but doesn't acknowledge her because it's creepy af.

Man oh man...in the birthday video for Paul...she looks like she has gained a whole lot of weight during her time away, and not in a good way. Definitely in an uncomfortable bulimic/binge eater going through something really bad way. Of course I hope I'm wrong and she's going through some recovery-related gain/bloating or something, but I doubt it.

did anyone see her recent live stream or know why she took it down? something about someone saying you can't be overweight & anorexic at the same time? xD
I missed it cause I don't have time to watch a sad dumpy 30-something woman who never leaves her house which is decorated like a 2nd grade classroom from 1996 but I'm still curious lol

This woman has no job and no children. There is absolutely no excuse for the house to be in any condition besides sparkling clean!

She’s sooo depressed tho. She’s sooo mentally drained. Chick is a nutcase! Seriously. Her “husband” is just as messed up that he’s enabling her behavior. The way she described how they have sex is gross too. No one needed to know that, no one!

I'm a glutton for punishment but also lazy. How do they have sex?

Post by FleekCucumber » Sat Jul 13, 2019 6:13 pm

She crosses her legs and he just puts it between her crossed legs and her vagina. Like rubbing? She says she has some sort of disorder where her vagina closes off and she cannot be penetrated. Stupid.
No one needed to know the details. I feel I shared way too much and what I said above is only 1/4 of what she shared.

Oh, ok. A glorified handjob then. Sounds like she has vaginismus, which is a very real condition in which a woman's vaginal muscles tense up so much that she cannot even get a gynocological exam. And not in the "she's tight so guys feel pleasure" way, but she's so clenched sex is impossible and even a digital exam in the doctor's office is not possible.

It most commonly occurs in victims of violent childhood sexual abuse (That's not gossip btw -- She has discussed being repeatedly sexually abused by a family member when she was a prepubescent child)

On to the gossip part -- I'm about 95% sure that her husband is gay, but he's religious so he's never going to come out. He picked the biggest damage case he could find who will never actually ask him to have sex with her so no one can ever ask him why he doesn't have kids or why the marriage has never been consummated. He is a very damaged person for sticking with someone as impossible as Shanny for so long. Shanny would probably let him divorce her and not even be mad about it -- she seems pretty understanding about her illness and her refusal to actually get treated. I don't think she's a bad person btw, she does seem very kind and like she wants people in her life to be happy. He could easily divorce her with no hard feelings but he won't because he's gay and seems content to play the "hero husband" role.

I didn’t mean to poke fun at abuse, she’s just a mess. Her whole pregnancy story I do NOT believe though.

I follow her for a while, but she gets on my nerves... It is hard to watch someone who clearly suffers NOT changing enough to get better.

Now her new series about being messy, I thought it was a good idea, but she cannot hold up to it either... I am just shocked to see her house and in what a mess she lives. It just shows that her husband must completely enable her, because living like that is crazy 0_O

And I don't understand why she doesn't learn more about filming and Youtube if, as she says it herself, Youtube is her "job". Her commenting other videos is just a pain to see, I don't know who watches this entirely.

She did NOT get pregnant having sex the way she described (which is really just masturbation, not intercourse). Unless she forced the sperm up there with a turkey baster, but given her medical diagnosis it would not be possible to do that.

I like that Shanny shows how horrible eating disorders really are, and that she doesn't glamorize it at all like other YouTubers have, but sometimes she just straight-up lies for attention and this is one of those times.

I feel she does glamorize it in a low key way. It’s weird, it’s like she acts as if she’s all against it but all of her “relapses” prove what she’s really about.

I don’t think she got pregnant because she didn’t have intercourse.

Yeah but have you seen her take out her teeth? I mean, holy fuck that is the shit of nightmares. I feel like other anorexics glamorize anorexia because they get treated as these beautiful, delicate, angels of femininity (just look at how people love Eugenia Cooney's garbage content just because she's skinny and has nice hair).

I think Shanny just doesn't want to recover. Her illness is so much a part of her person and her life that she can't imagine life without it. Plus she gets to regress to a 5yo staying home from school sucking on bottles of pedialyte and she likes that. But, even though it's clear she doesn't actually want to get better, I don't think she glamorizes it because . .those teeth videos. ghaghghghg.
