Morbid question Anonymous 06/25/2019 (Tue) 02:10:41 Id:9e3a5e No. 7959
So, I know this is morbid to ask about, but I am really curious: how many models have actually died, by eating themselves to death? I know of Madison Aikers and Summer.

Also, I wonder who has the same goals: Luna and Echo are likely, I guess.
that's gonna be a yikes from me, man
Madison Aikers had a disease of some sort that was not obesity related.
>>7976
She was 33, eating just junk and over 400lbs... the death was not obesity related?
>>7981

No, it wasn't. IIRC, she just stopped breathing one morning, wasn't a heart attack.

I remember it being due to a fungal infection. It didn't sound like there were complications due to obesity either.

however I've heard horror stories about doctors and how they don't try as hard to save fat people, especially fat women, so maybe that played a role. My parents and all of their friends are medical professionals and they hate fat people with a passion lol
>>7989
I don't doubt that for a second. Would you embrace someone who makes your job more difficult, or a repeat offender who you know won't accept your advice?

Take Vanilla Hippo for example. She has been in the hospital more than anyone else I've seen lately and she's over 800 pounds. The only person who would love that is a hospital administrator, only because of the repeat business. Everyone else has to be sick of seeing her so often- they're not getting paid by the patient.
Well, people do pay for their healthcare. In America at least lol. Even in countries where people don’t have to pay for healthcare, doctors are getting paid to take care of the patients. And they get paid well, too. When you take a job as a doctor, you accept the responsibility to treat all of your patients to the best of your ability. And of course, vanilla hippo is a different situation. But when patients who are just like, normal-fat complain about a health problem that isn’t definitely caused directly by their weight and doctors refuse to offer them other treatment until they lose weight, that’s a violation of the Hippocratic oath.
How many people still exist in this day and age and haven't heard of lipoedema?
Put it this way, Echo is huge, looking at her size would ,make you think she must been one of the fattest women that has ever lived, but, despite not having any recent weigh-ins from her, she isn't.

In short, her girth/size/mass/condition is not primarily caused though gluttony/obesity/food addiction.

Just from my observations, the expectations of patients can be pretty out there. Also the doctor's job is to make "correct" decisions with incredibly limited info. When 90% of the people having a certain condition are obese, it's not technically wrong to look at it from that standpoint when a very obese patient walks in. Often the patient is looking for a magic fix when there really isn't one. It's lose the weight or take these meds that might not work well and produce their own side effects and potentially cause even more visits. On the other hand as others stated, there is a bias and many doctors, because of all their bad experiences,probably daily, deeply hate fat people, so there's gotta be some accountability there.

Just to clarify one thing - in Europe you pay for your healthcare too. Only instead of paying straight to the doctor, it is added as another tax of roughly 15-20% (depending on country) to all your income.
The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are Cindy G and Huge and Hot. Cindy G got septic from a MRSA infection that she got because of a pressure sore and Huge and Hot had a massive heart attack.
Well technically speaking, there is no such thing as free healthcare as in there is no such thing as a free lunch, meaning, with taxes or non-taxes, they all cost something.
>>8017
That's not a rebuttal. "Nothing is free" but I'd rather have money taken out of my taxes for a system that doesn't nitpick what's covered and what isn't, instead of shell out hundreds every month for a plan that doesn't even cover a blood test.

I know Deidrababe from Bigcuties died. Though I'm honestly not sure if it was her weight that had any impact on her death.
>>8175
Yeah, cancer if I'm not mistaken. Her weight was preventing her from using the screening technology however. Weight limits and all.
Folks on Dimensions who have been in the scene for decades talked about how half of the SSBBWs they knew in the 80s died in their 40's/early fifties. Curious who they were referring to
>>8177

Been going to Dimensions Online since 1994 - I remember the Chatroom that was ACTIVE every night. Heck, there was something called the Dimensions Matching Service that was an early version of BBWCupid or something along those lines.

The ONLY ones I remember passing away from then to now were Deidrababe, CindyG, Madison Aikers, and I seem to remember Jeri Carmichael or Anna as well - but don't quote me on that.

All of them, as I remember, passed away from something odd except for Cindy as I don't ever think details got out about her. Could be argued that super fats don't go to the Dr. regularly enough to identify problems so a minor thing ended up taking them out, or early detection of a major disease was not an option.

Then Kelligrl disappeared and I think that some of the Dimensions Crowd legit believed that she exploded or something so they count her among the casualties.

So yes, it was moguls of the community that left - but the actual number(s) of people? Nah man, any online community has death - think about Teamspeak communities, online forums (not fat related), car clubs, etc. It happens. Just a huge stigma attached to fatties (for good reason) and it tends to get blown out of proportion.
>>8181

Cindy G reportedly went into hospital for something like pneumonia and then managed to pick up an infection while she was there. Her immune system was too weak from the illness to fight it off.
>>8181
FYI, Jeri Carmichael is alive.
