On Reddit, a fan wrote, “Is anyone else bothered by the TV therapist they got for Tammy? It feels like they got her JUST to frame Tammy as uncomfortable or resistant to treatment. But, honestly? I wouldn’t be comfortable discussing my trauma with that therapist either. She’s robotic and seems more aware that she’s on camera than giving a therapy session.”

Tammy Slaton’s Disability Is her New Identity

However, another fan disagreed with the claim that Tammy was the victim of the circumstances. They explained that the therapist is a specialist and the TLC star self-sabotages because her disability has now become her identity. They further added, “And if she’s not morbidly obese she’s not disabled. At this point, she’s basically killed herself and she’s mentally dealing with that reality and is in the ‘why bother’ phase we see often on 600lb life.”

  1. I think she has enablers.I would think she needs to get to the bottom of why she is that heavy. hard facts to hear but when someone or something is talked-about and she doesn’t want to or like what they say she throws a fit. and they back away. she could of stayed in rehab but the excuse was to far away from home. I don’t think she wants to lose weight she’s getting attention.

    1. Leave Tammy alone she just could not loses the wait until God brought her to the place where she had no choice and where she would meet her future husband and follow her destiny if the therapist doesn’t work then Tammy can change it and the therapist doesn’t need to look for an excuse not to be changed
