A few years ago, I remember reading about an anorexic woman who "live blogged" until about 20 minutes before her death, which was, needless to say, brought on by her anorexic behaviour.
I just came across this newspaper article (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1257850/Super-sized-mother-determined-worlds-fattest-woman-years.html)* about another woman who is also killing herself on the Internet...from overeating. If you read the article, here's how to do the math: one "stone" equals 14 pounds.
She obviously has a deep-seated attachment to food that has nothing to do with nourishing her body. But the worst part is how she feeds her habit by getting men to pay for the privilege of watching her eat.
It's a sick world out there.
*For some reason, I can't put in links. Must speak to hubby, aka computer man, about this.
