    I hope no one you are about ever has any problems with food, booze, drugs etc.

    I can understand why people find it hard to sympathise, when so many people manage to get themselves out of these sort of situations.

    Though everyone deals with this sort of shit in different ways.

    I have had a quick look through this thread, and I can agree with both arguments to a point. She obviously has severe mental issues so making fun of her is just dangerous. She could of done aything depressed people do: like drugs or drink. As her solace is food however this makes it easier to poke fun at her. Its like peole who dont eat. Id there was a picture of a 30 yr ols who weighed 4 stone. Would you make fun of them as well?

    My biggest querie with these people has always been: Who the fuck pays for all the food. Because I work full time and I could never afford to eat that many calories a day

    Pfft the day I start paying for porn is the day I really get annoyed at myself for paying for porn but pay for it anyway because I'm weak willed and horny.

    Although people get addicted to drink and drugs. Do they get addicted to food? I don't think being "really hungry" is quite the same.

    Is it wrong that every time I see this thread bumped I expect it to be because she died?

    @CosmicFuzz

    If you accept that people can become addicted to sex, or gambling, or drugs that don't replace a naturally occuring substance in the body (Weed, rather than Heroine say). Then food addiction is a real thing.

    Seems like the jury is out on whether or not it's an actual addiction. Quite interesting actually.

    It's greed and a lack of self respect, not an addiction.

    Been there, done that, got the diabetic tshirt.

    It's an addiction.

    I don't smoke, drink or do drugs, so I used food to handle serious personal grief. I'd wake up in the morning and have two litres of Coke and 150g of Doritos. It distracted me from the grief (ie. the real issue), and it begins to perpetuate itself. You begin to feel shit (mentally and physically), but because it's leaving you in such a state you don't have to face your actual problems/real world, it gets more and more out of control.

    It can be as a much a chemical addiction as a psychological one. I've never heard of someone becoming addicted to fresh vegetables! Salty and sugary processed foods coming out the wazoo though.

    Yeah, a fair bit of it is probably down to depression - food, especially comfort food, often works as a natural antidepressant. It's just that vicious loop that's the cornerstone of myriad problems like anxiety, OCD and the like.

    Yep, pretty much.

    And it works like a drug that you build up a tolerance to - you end up needing more and more to feel like it's having an effect.

    You need something to help break that cycle (in my case waking up in A&E with diabetes), but I still had to sort out the root of the problem, so attended bereavement therapy whilst straightening out my diet and exercise.

    The most important thing I found, and it's something this girl clearly doesn't have, is to have friends and family support you. And that can involve a heck of a lot of tough love, which is something else she clearly isn't getting.

    If anything, her carers are clearly 'enablers'. As said elsewhere in the thread, how in fuck's name can you reach that weight at such a young age without it literally being handed to you on a plate? Killing with kindness, and all that.

    Holy shit, seriously? That's almost 4 times my weight, and I could do with losing a few kg myself. Does she not have any family or friends to help her out? I imagine that at that weight, it's relatively easy to shed weight, with just a little care...

    Strangely enough, I agree with morriss for the most part. I'm kinda sickened by the complete lack of sympathy or any attempt at understanding. I'm not saying that this chick is a poor little angel or anything, but clearly over-eating to this extent is a psychological problem. And whoever is enabling her needs educating.

    Things like this are often symptoms, not causes. It's easy to point the finger and say "You should have self-control," but not everyone who doesn't want to live goes and takes a bath with a toaster.

    Food can just be like drugs and alcohol when it comes to looking for solace and escape. It might not space you out like booze or pot, but it can certainly make you feel good, if only temporarily.

    Yes, there will be some overweight people who basically are just lazy twats who like pies too much. But someone who is overweight isn't necessarily lazy any more than an alcoholic is.

    It's easy to judge when you haven't been in those shoes.

    Those special 'comfortable' shoes with the thick soft rubber soles?

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    Aren't sea levels already rising fast enough?!
