I watched this last night. How sad. It was awful seeing the 13 yr old daughter too. She was so honest, but what a very sad life those two girls have had.
The thing I struggle to understand is that how when someone is bedridden for 4 years at over 45 stone is how she can put another 20 stone one when others are obviously feeding her.
I know if it was someone I loved dearly, as her family obviously did, I couldn't keep feeding them enough to put another 20 stone on her. 20 stone in 4 years is an awful lot of weight when you can't get into the kitchen to help yourself to food.
don't get me wrong, I know how easy it is to put weight on, I need to lose another 130 pounds, so I'm a 'big girl' myself, but where were the GP's etc to help her even when she was refused surgery for 12 years?
