S09.E07: Krystal's Story LIVE CHAT

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a full time job for the first time since March. Right now I work 13 hours a week. I'm dreading working the grown up hours again. 

Right? I'm living in terror that I'll have to go back to the office before I actually leave. I don't think I could face the commute again, plague or no plague. My boss and I were talking the other day and we were laughing about how I'd have to plan my own retirement party over Zoom, and I was all "dammit and I won't even get a big retirement party with cake and champagne like I always wanted!"

Does TLC tell all these people that they will be the exception to the rule about moving to Houston?   I just don't get it.  Sorta like the people who go down there and seemed so shocked he is asking them to lose weight.

Wow, that beard is pretty pronounced.  Sleeping 16 hours a day and she looks like the wolfman's big brother, ...I sense hormone imbalance.

Wasn't Freelin in the room when Dr. Now said they had to be in Houston?

Watching him chew, he looks like he has no teeth.

Krystal reminds me of the 600-pounder who kind of looked like a girl. He had sort of salt and pepper hair and wore round rimmed glasses. At the end of the show he proposed to his girlfriend. Ring a bell with anyone?

Freelin acting like this is news that he has never heard of before. OR maybe the elevator doesn't go all the way to the top

she's insulin dependent diabetic too. 

That may actually go away if she loses weight.  Unlikely after so many years of abusing that body, but possible.  

Freelin ain't feelin the move.

It's always "what HE wants me to do" and not "what I need to do".

Showing off my faincy education here.

Reasons that people seek change--
Stage 1: Forced or ordered to change by authority (court, doctor)

Stage 2: Change applied to avoid criticism.

Stage 3: Change applied to avoid personal consequenses (job loss, declining mobility, progressing symptoms)
Stage 4: Change applied because client is determined to shed the damaging behavior.  

Stage 4 is the least common reason that people seek help.

Who is the child, her son? I missed that.

It is her nephew.  She adopted him because her sister was a drug addict.

Or 7 just alike, to cut down on decisionmaking.

Her beard is back already?!!  Would her underarms be affected like this also?

Yes, and from groin to knee.

The same issue also causes bald spots on the scalp because life is just mean.

It depends.  The two don't necessarily correlate.

 

Wow, abused by three different men at such a young age... that's just horrible.

She's awake from 11AM to 7 PM?  That's when some folks are doing intermittent fasting.....

That's a half hour less than a standard shift at the store I used to work at (including a half hour lunch).

Sad to say, getting fat did not stop the molestation as much as she thinks.

Dr Paradise is good with her.

I am not optimistic due to the genetics.

Does Freelin have any teeth?

They're probably packed in the orange storage bin/suitcase.

I can't snark on her too hard yet.  She seems calm and treats her family kindly, stepping up to take care of her nephew.  Her house looks relatively clean and tidy.  Unlike so many of the people who come on this show that are so unlikeable and I can't care about, I'm rooting for her.

Dr. Paradise is right.  She is completely disengaged from herself and from the therapy session.  Not sure what needs to happen/how long it will take for things to click into place, if they do.  But without it, she is unlikely to succeed - it's like her body is not the body she inhabits but something separate from her...

And here, my friends who have observed that Krystal has a guy but you don't, is why. Do you want a toothless, scraggy bearded guy whose elevator doesn't go to the top? NO!

All the spare cash goes to Chinese takeout.

Yea I can’t snark on that....made my stomach turn. The flat affect is a clear indication of deep seated trauma. She has compartmentalized her abuse and never really dealt with it

Yes... Joe...he looked more feminine as he lost weight, right? That was some unfortunate DNA.

Wasn't that Joe married and then divorced her while slamming her on social media.

Another reason NOT to get Discovery Plus...

Dr. Pimple Popper!

I would like to watch Mike Rowe's show, but absolutely nothing else about D-Plus looks worth paying for..

No champagne for me (no liquor on campus), just fancy cupcakes & soda. My son and his wife had separate zoom baby showers from their respective workplaces. Not as much fun as in person, but the checks were bigger. 😄

Probably a coping mechanism from the repeated rapes.

Are they saying that "Dr. Pimple Popper" is ONLY going to be on Discovery Plus?

I can’t tell, but I won’t pay for it.  That’s just ridiculous.
