Do you recall this story of a girl whose mother had Munhausen Syndrome by Proxy?
This poor girl was bound to a wheelchair for her entire life, treated for leukaemia, asthma and muscular dystrophy. Diagnosed as having the mental capacity of a 7 year old due to brain damage during birth. She was fed through a tube and had her salivary glands removed.
She had all this treatment from doctors when there was nothing wrong with her other than a lazy eye.
She is currently serving 10 years for being involved in the murder of her mother!
