Also really stressed to the person asking DON'T accuse, because actually faking it is so rare.

Thankfully, not a case I am treating!!! I was asked for some input on it, gave a big disclaimer that it's not my area of expertise. Thank you for the article very informative. And yes never would accuse someone of faking!

I just like that you seemed to have a glimmer of hope the third time around, and then it all went away the fourth photo.

Wow, that is wild!!!

Got more info.... This person is addicted to opioids and saying migraines are causing the speech problems and is trying to get scripts from multiple offices. So sad.

Okay, thank you! According to the account, it was a big loud belly laugh :-/

So, you ask them to cough or laugh, and if they can do those, it may be malingering?

Back on this post now picking brains again. Swollen lymph nodes in the neck and sore throats more persistent this last month as well as increases in joint pain.

Worked on a farm briefly when I was 17. Haven't had any weird exposures to animals since. Don't drink unpasteurized anything.

I just found My Favorite Murder. My problem is that I like it too much and don't wanna leave the shower!

Edit - realize you meant for chores, not showers.

People who don’t put the shopping carts in the corral when you’re done, why? by breakingwave876 in AskReddit

I had to put them away at a job, no matter the weather, and almost got ran over more than once when I had to retrieve a stray. Please return your carts to the corral, people!

What’s the most incredible thing you’ve done accidentally? by gerawrd_ in AskReddit

I once slipped in beer while trying a too-ambitious dance move and landed into the splits. It looked intentional and was on beat. I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants.

Walmart has a savings catcher. If a local competitor advertises a product you bought for a lower price they will refund you the difference. I haven't seen a huge refund yet, but get back 10 cents - 50 cents every couple shopping trips usually.
