    Thank you! I will read up on it as well.

    I'm really sorry you had that childhood. I do appreciate your insights here in this forum.

    I also appreciated that she was worried about Kat's health. She mentioned that Kat was eating the same foods she was, and she wanted to set a better example and get Kat onto a better path. This episode reminded me of why I really like this show. I wondered if Brianna had seen some episodes or had read some of the concerns that viewers raise here or in other forums.

    I'm guessing a lot is going on there, but it could be a warped sense of hospitality. One of my aunts once explained that when offered food or drink, etiquette required her to say no, but then etiquette required the person to offer again. She said she was allowed to accept the 2nd time it was offered. As someone who had never heard this rule, I saw a new side of things, so now I try to remember to ask twice, and then I'll drop it. I don't think it extends to giving someone a bite of my own serving, though...

    Did it seem to anyone else that Octavia was not digging into the biscuits as heartily as Nichelle wanted? It wasn't that she wasn't eating, and I admit to not watching closely, but I thought Nichelle seemed irritated that Octavia wasn't as enthusiastic about the cheat day.

    @Morgalisa, what is it about her neck that led you to suggest that she has diabetes? I wasn't watching very closely, but I'm not sure I would have seen what you saw, even if I had been. I'm just curious. I have friends and family with diabetes. Thanks!

    *ba-dum ching* I *liked* this after reading it in the live chat, but for some reason I had to come back and let you know that I laughed out loud when I read it. ❤ (Yes, I know it has to be hard to find clothing. Maybe the patients could wear hospital gowns -- those would cover one side all the time and most of the flip side some of the time.)

    S06.E13: Schenee's Story

    I'm sorry if this is a repeat post, but I think my previous attempt was eaten. My doctor once prescribed a bleach bath for me when I had poison ivy (I can't remember the proportion -- 1/4 cup or maybe a full cup for a bathtub full of water). I remember worrying what it would do to my hair, so I didn't dunk my head under, and my sister was horrified at the idea when I mentioned it to her. I have well water, though (no chlorine), so I probably worried more than necessary. I smelled a little bleachy (think swimming pool) for about a day. The poison ivy was better after that and the lotions, so I went right back to showers (without the bleach). Schenee might have had medical advice along these same lines.

    Did anyone watch this episode from On Demand? I deleted the original airing off my DVR but then watched the On Demand version, and I think the scene with Dr. Paradise is missing. That was one of my favorite scenes! I can't quote it exactly because I don't have it, but I loved this: Dr. P.: How did we get here? James: <Something sort of like, "What?">

    "Mini-doxie mix's mission" -- say that 3 times fast. I was cheering for Doug, but I kept wishing we'd hear more from Ashley. I know, it wasn't her show. But she had WLS also, and she had her own issues to face. *Putting Oreos on my grocery list so I can be healthy.* Every time I hear that, I hope she's exaggerating for effect. I have a friend who says, "Ex-squeeze me," and I sometimes wonder if she's forgotten the actual form that English teachers would use. So maybe she wants to say that he's a stupid-head who stupids more than Stupidy Stupid ever stupidded. I hope that's her point, anyway.
  11. After watching that reminder bit, I think my favorite part of Doug's episode was his wife, who had previously undergone the surgery, so she knew quite a lot about what he was getting into. She also talked about trying to teach their child(ren?) about healthy eating.

    Hi everyone! Long-time listener, first-time caller. I think the first time I found your amazing forum was when James K's first installment aired, but I didn't create an account till I saw what happened to Roni's finger. Sigh. What really gave me pause during this episode wasn't Lisa's smile (because somehow I was looking away at the time), but the two times that James really seemed anxious or confused (or both?): when he was talking to Dr. Paradise and Lisa was out of the room and when he was arguing with Dr. Now who wanted to keep him in care without Lisa's interventions. He really can't stand to have her out of his sight. Both times I found his responses to be out of sync somehow. And his response to Dr. Now, "I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO DO!" What? Save your life? That's what he's trying to do. I was incredulous, but granted, I'm watching from home, following a narrative that TLC has set, and certainly I'm not as emotionally invested as they are. Having said that, I almost cried at the end of the episode. I was shocked, angry, but overwhelmed with sadness, too. (Why you won't appreciate me: I love Dr. Lee! (Dr. Pimple Popper -- I watch her on YouTube), and I like Lola, although initially I wasn't sure, I have become more and more fond of her over time.)
