Lyla. She was an FMG who came back to do her residency here in NYC, afaik. She used to post long, detailed posts about her day in the hospital, especially when she stood up for things like feminism or bad interns who took no responsibility. And she said that her brother was one of the few who was in critical condition Boston Marathon bombings, for which a bunch of the medblrs immediately messaged her to comfort her.
BUT it was all a lie. She later admitted that the posts and stories were not her own. Which was also weird because she did post a lot of photos from her personal life. Even the story about her brother was a lie.
And tbh it kinda made everyone feel bad. Especially because we all believed her and we enjoyed reading those posts (actually now I’m curious where she got them from) and rooted for her and prayed for her brother and she seemed really nice too. But no. It was all a lie. And she deleted. The end.
Yup. To the person who asked me a similar question.
I always thought from the personal pics she had a weird amount of free time for a resident.
Don’t forget towards the end she was also in a coma from being hit by a car on her bike and her ‘fiance’ took over for a minute.
I forgot about that coma/fiance take over part
(Insert Wayfaringmd’s drama gifs here)
My god, that was the worst.
I remember calling her out on something that just didn’t make sense prior to the whole bombing thing and then when that stuff happened, I just completely lost faith.
Gotta love the medblr drama
