Not even 50 years old yet and Milla Clark of Tennessee has to be tended to like an invalid.
Another sad tale of unchecked appetites and girth that ends a normal life. Last night on TLC’s My 600-lb Life told the story of Clark, 47, a mother of five who clocks in at over 700-lb.
She is, of course, completely bedridden and unable to feed or bathe herself. In the segment we learnt she sends her children to bring back fast food for her.
Her husband Elroy says he loves her but he is too ill to care for her. Acting as carers, her kids must wash her, help her eliminate waste, and try to keep her immediate area clean. It is horrifying.
Bullies picked on Milla as a kid saying she was the “fat, stinky girl,” and this, of course, exacerbated the problem. Her own mother, she says, never showed her any love except through food.
Her five kids face becoming orphans if she doesn’t find some food religion.
Also last night was Fat Chance, which showed Cheyanne – who has crushed on Reagan for 12 years but her weight keeps her from acting out. She’s tiny compared to the 600-lb people at only 212-lbs, but she has never had the courage to tell him. Cheyanne’s going to attempt to lose 60 pounds in 90 days.
