A morbidly obese woman who weighs nearly 600lbs and eats fast-food at least once a day says she has become a 'burden' do her life partner. June McCamey, 44, from League City, Texas, reveals that she relies on her partner Sadi Gregory to do everything physical for her - including bathing her.
Sadi says that when she first met June, she was attracted to her confidence and the fact that she 'liked to get out'. However, Sadi says June's weight now 'restricts her from doing a lot'. 'Maybe a year in I started getting concerned because things [were] changing,' Sadi explained. 'She is totally dependent on me.'
June sometimes yells for Sadi to come into her bedroom because she is hungry. When Sadi suggests tacos, June insists that she wants nachos and burritos with extra beef, extra cheese, and extra sour cream. On her way to Taco Bell, Sadi admits that she gets her partner fast-food sometimes two or even three times a day.
'When we first got together, I was much more mobile,' June says, But 'Now I feel like she is taking care of me like I'm a kid.' 'I am conflicted about buying us food,' she explains. 'I give in because I don't want a fuss. The relationship changed to like a caretaker. That's not what I signed up for.'
June, who admits their relationship has 'become a burden to Sadi', she struggles to fight her addiction to food. When Sadi comes home and there is a part of her order missing, June accuses her of not following the list she gave her. 'Did you look at the paper?' she asks, 'You couldn't of.'
Sadi, who insists that she followed the list, tells her partner: 'That's what you get for your long orders.' June then calls Taco Bell to tell her that her order was missing an item.
'She's like an addict. Her fix is food,' Sadi explains. June weighed 400lbs about her four pregnancies because she never lost any of the baby weight, however, her addiction to food spiraled out of control after the death of her son four years ago.
'If my son saw me right now, it would hurt him,' she admits. June explains that she feels like she is 'living in a nightmare' 'I feel imprisoned in my body. I'm in pain. It hurts to sit up. I'm breathing heavy, chest is pounding. I'm worried my heart will give out,' she says.
'I feel like at any moment of me standing up my knees are going to give up,' she adds. 'The weight is too much. I don't know how much more weight I can actually put on my knees. I don't think they are going to last.'
June struggles to get out of bed and go to the bathroom, where it takes her two or three tries to lift her legs into the tub. Once she is sitting down on the edge of the bathtub, Sadi comes in to wash scrub her back. 'To have someone bathe me is so embarrassing,' June admits.
Sadi explains that the real June is not the person that you see on the outside. 'It is like the real her is a prisoner inside the body she is in,' she adds. June says when she walks it feels like she is 'carrying a toddler on each' leg. Her lack of mobility has left her confined to three areas in her home.
'I have three seats: my bed, the bathroom toilet, and my chair,' she said. 'My world is confined. I feel suffocated in in it. I feel like I am going from a bed coffin to a chair coffin.'
