He doesn’t sound too confident when Dr Now asked him if he could do this!

He looked sedated or high to me. Pain meds probably.

I used to love to throw my bra off when I got home from work, but now that I'm retired, I rarely wear one anymore! 

I work from home. One of the many reasons I'm loathe to go back into the workplace is bras. I only wear them when I'm leaving the house, which is glorious.

What a shame for a doctor to have to hector a patient to wash and keep clean. How does Sean not slither out of that SUV of a wheelchair and melt into the woodwork?
I saw a yellow/brown stain on his sheets when the aide/bathers came in. Eeuuuww.

Need the 🤮 icon for this!

Thanks, @sagittarius sue I recently retired and stayed in my jammies all day and felt incredibly guilty.  You've made me feel so much better!  (I did brush my teeth, comb my hair however).

Thank you   Dr. Nowzaradan!    For calling him out for HOW MUCH he must eat to gain weight.  thanks for spelling it out.  Ferme la bouche !                !

I think anyone who truly believes Sean could have just changed his eating habits on his own is unrealistic. And an occasional session with Dr. Paradise would not relieve him of his physical addiction to and/or psychological dependence on food. Sean's only chance might have been a psychiatric care facility.

My bra came off as soon as I got in the car to come home.

Now I Know these voice overs must be scripted. 

His goal is to be "completely independent"?  Indeed, his every action screams that he is committed to that purpose. 

And I'm going to win the lottery, marry Hugh Jackman and live in a mansion in Paris.

Heh

You can’t!!!! I’m gonna marry Hugh Jackman.

That's how I gained about 8 pounds between Halloween and Ash Wednesday.  If I had been wearing normal clothes everyday, I think I might have noticed earlier.

I am about to go put on my jammies now

I'll take 58 over 100 any day! 

In MN we're supposed to get down to 48 tonight.  After we hit 90 on Friday!  Temps just keep jumping around.

Good evening, my peeps!

My eating habit is chicken kiev, wild rice, and asparagus.  For dessert we are having some very tasty watermelon.  A very nice meal all around. 

Another person I need to hang out with. That sounds totally yum. I will be buying a watermelon on sale for $2.99 from Harris Teeter tomorrow and thinking about making a watermelon, feta, kalamata olive, red onion and arugula salad.

Yes, it sounds weird but just check out watermelon feta salad online and you will find plenty of recipes for it.

His only words in a long talk with Dr Now was yeah, ok, uh huh. He has no enthusiasm. His life force is gone. “I’m going to do what I need to do,” he said. I think he’s very suicidal.

Obviously the weight gain is bad for his body, but can any of the medical peeps here speak to the effect on the body when someone like Sean gains and loses 100s of pounds over and over again? Does it matter or does it create problems?

Heart, liver, kidney, gall bladder issues, among other things.

Foreshadowing?  Any weight gain will be very dangerous... well Duh.

The foreshadowing is getting anvilicious. It started when Dr Now said something about signing a death certificate with an open date and it’s only gotten more blatant.

Isn't that a policy in rehab places? My dad was in a rehab after he had a stroke, and he was supposed to get dressed every day, and spend time out of bed, even if it was sitting in a chair.

Both of my parents spent time in rehab, and YES getting dressed and out of bed every day was not optional.

I haz feta so I will, but I detest olives.  During the summer I buy watermelon weekly at the farmers' market.

 I’ve heard that yo-yoing and going up and down in weight can be very hard physically on your body. I can’t imagine going up and down hundreds of pounds in such a short amount of time is what Sean has been doing. 200 pounds up and down! That’s an entire human!

I wonder if he has ever been told someone was proud of him for doing something? His mom did not seem to encourage him to DO something just (as I remember) false praise for doing simple stuff.

Years ago a Weight Watchers buddy of mine said something similar. When you come home and put on pajamas, you don't notice as the weight creeps up. I have comfortable 'at home' clothes now (sans bra), but they are clothes and would 'warn' me I was starting to gain.

Comcast is acting an ass, so I can only half-ass see what's happening. I'm struck, tho, by how much effort and energy Dr. Now put into helping Sean, but it was never enough. Sean ultimately didn't want to take care of himself. We can blame his mom, but he's an adult with access to counseling and world-class medical care. At the end of the day, he didn't want to try. 

At the end of the day, I think, Sean was mentally ill and needed more intensive psychiatric care than he could get from an occasional counseling session with Dr. Paradise.

On weekends, I wear my standard lounging around the house attire/jammies. Leggings and an big comfy t-shirt. MAYBE a caftan if I'm feeling fancy. I do shower and brush my teeth. I'm not a savage! But loungewear and jammies are interchangeable. I work at a university and we have no dress code so I don't really have standard work wear, just jeans and decent looking blouses/tops. Even that is too much though. I am living for the day I retire and can be comfy every. single. day.

On The Kitchen Saturday they made a yogurt based dip with feta, mint, etc., and used it as a dip for watermelon sticks.  Looked good!

Therapist, nutritionist, PT, etc, and none of it was enough. I can't help thinking about the person who DIDN'T get picked instead of Sean, and wondering if they'd have tried harder than he did. He wants a permanent servant to feed him, bathe him, and cater to his every whim. The more I watch, the more irritated I get. 🤬
