Just found out the previous owner of the house my brother recently bought had to sell up and move out because she was so fat she kept falling over and was unable to get back up again. They had to keep calling the ambo's to do it because the retired neighbours were also unable to get her on her feet. A little bit funny, but also really not
I used to live in a council estate in England and one day I had a knock on the door by an old lady who was obviously senile or had alzheimers. She was in a bit of a state and kept saying "there's a man on the floor!" and grabbed my arm to make me come with her. I followed her thinking there was an intruder in her house, getting amped up to help her with god knows what, when I got there there was an old dude who had fallen over and couldn't get up and had pissed himself. Only way they could get help was the woman who was of a similar state of disability mentally, instead of physically. I helped him up and got him settled in the lounge but he was pretty shaken up. I helped them out whenever they needed but it was obvious they were too poor to have any regular help, was quite a sad situation.
The fact that people get so fat that they get into a similar state of helplessness is quite disturbing
