Poor girl! I'm glad you got her out of that situation. It may take quite a while for her system to normalize. Since it's been a couple of months it may be a good idea to have a vet check a sample for parasites. In the meantime keep offering her a wide variety of veges. I'd continue to go easy on the bugs/protein at this point and focus on keeping her hydrated and getting her used to eating greens and veges. A few items from this list in each salad is a good place to start. Just rotate based on what's fresh at the store http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutrition.html It's also important to provide proper temperatures and strong, high quality UVB lighting to help her digest everything properly and bounce back.

Hello,

That was definitely a bad situation for your dragon before you got her. How is she doing
today?
It does them awhile to fully recover, too. Has she had much of an appetite?
