Monica says she used to be an English teacher, a marathon runner, and happy -- and she wants her old life back. She says she now weighs only 90lbs., and her life consists of lying in bed. She says she can’t eat solid food due to being diagnosed with C-diff, and she has to chain herself to her bed to make sure she doesn’t sleepwalk and binge on food in the middle of the night. Monica’s mother, Stephanie, says taking care of her daughter has become a full-time job, and not only is she taking care of Monica, but she is also taking care of her 2-year-old son. Monica’s friend Breanna claims Stephanie enables her to an extreme and says Monica isn’t taking the steps to get better.
