  1. She is very much alive. Both her & her mother have been on FaceBook all day blasting people who left comments on a private 600 lb life discussion page. They are as usual are playing a blame game along with the woe poor pitiful me game.

    1. Dr Now had to keep tell her and millie about Margaret’s hygiene? I never seen the mom attempt to shower her. I know that house smelled.😳😵🤢🤢🤮

    1. This Lady is such big cry baby. Her Mother needs let her live her life.plus Margaret needs get her life together.

  2. Margaret Johnson is the biggest crybaby I have ever seen on ” My 600 Pound Life ” . Most of the time people like that have this problem because their mothers have made them so dependent on them, they can’t do ANYTHING on their own. They are terrified of the world and everything in it. She is no exception. Dr. Paradise recognized this immediately. Another thing, why in the world don’t these people believe in wearing drawers??? Who want’s to see their nastie’s exposed to the camera and the world? Not I! For Heavens sake put on some underwear, even if you have to sew two pairs together. Be a human being!!!!

    1. You are absolutely correct why does she cry all the time
      Give her a pacifier maybe she will shut
      She’s the worst I have ever seen
      I seriously feel no she has a mental disorder

    2. To me I saw (munchhosin syndrome by proxy) that relationship is definetly sick. Margaret is treated and acts like a 4 year old baby.she is obviously been a prisoner of her mother since a child.social services should do something.

      1. Bro 😂😂😂 it’s Munchausen and it’s when a caregiver makes up fake symptoms or causes real symptoms to make it look like the child is sick. This is NOT that. They’re both immature & codependent

  3. This girl desperately needs help. I kept thinking the same thing she’s such a big baby. Her mother even calls her baby. Very very sad situation great I hope she can overcome her demons. I hope dr. Paradise is not give up on her and I hope she does not give up on seeing him because she needs him and more importantly she needs the Lord.

  4. This poor woman needs our prayers not our criticism. What is wrong with all you nay sayers? Yes there is some possible disfunction in the family dynamic. But gosh people, you should walk a mile in Margaret’s shoes long before you criticize the poor woman or her mother.

  5. There is definitely serious mental illness going on with this toxic mother-daughter duo. If I heard Mommie Dearest say “we” one more time … gah! I am absolutely shocked that she managed to qualify for surgery but I have little to no hope she will be successful. And for pity sake, will someone please clean that filthy house!!
