Been watching a show called "Big Medicine" on, I think, Discovery Health. There is one person on there who has always been big. He was almost half a ton. He's down in the 600s now. His momma had everything to do with it. She fed him and fed him and he learned the behavior as a child. His father tried to get him and her to stop. His mom, even when the guy was bedridden continued to feed him everything she could.
The narrator on the show and the doctors basically said that his mother needed to care for someone and he was it. Without him to take care of every day, she'd be lost.
I wonder if the mother has some sort of Munchausen (sp?) by proxy syndrome, or a cousin of it.
It has to be a mental condition in the enabler. No other way around it.

“Feeders,” as they are called, are into controlling their eaters. What better way to keep a person completely dependant and under control.
