Every now and then I see a news article about a 600 pound man or woman who is so fat they are bedridden and cannot get out of bed. They normally need a family member to “clean” them on a regular basis and feed them. I once saw an article about a man who’s skin had literally bonded with the fabric upholstery of his couch and needed to have to fabric surgically removed.
I’ve been sitting here wondering…. How is it possible for someone to get to that state? If they cannot feed themselves it means that SOMEONE is feeding them. You’d think the person doing the feeding would refuse to give the morbidly obese person more than X calories a day. Hell, what could the fat person possibly do force the feeder to feed them even more?
