Fat People on Scooters
Chemo

#22 May 12, 2009
Yea a couple years ago I was taking chemo and I was very week, my hair didn't fall out, (was very fortunate not to lose my hair) and I hadn't been out in weeks, my mom finally got me to go to w/m and ride the cart, I was so embarrassed, some people would look at me like why is she using that. I was very weak and I felt very embarrassed and it is because of rude people. I know I shouldn't have let it bother me but I am that kind of person.

I'm not sure what part people aren't getting aout me asking could the LAZY FAT people stay off the scooters, so the elderly could use them? Once again, IF YOU NEED IT, FINE!! IF YOU ARE JUST TOO FAT AND LAZY, GET OFF!! I honestly cannot feel sorry for people who eat themselves into a disabled state. That is gross!! If there is something wrong with you that causes you to be heavy, that's okay. Unfortunately, many are getting checks for being too fat to work just because they can't stop eating!! That's just nasty!!

I don't think the majority realized that you were talking about the scooters at WalMart, I think they just thought you were saying fat people in general shouldn't ride scooters. I tend to agree with you that the elderly people should be allowed to use the scooters at WalMart before overweight people. Regardless of why you are overweight walking around the store would probably be good exercise. I am not trying to be mean or rude and have nothing against people of any size, but I do think you should take advantage of any opporitunity to get exercise and improve your health. A lady I know was in her seventh month of pregnancy when the doctor put her on bed rest but she went to WalMart one day because she couldn't find anyone to pick up the medicine the doctor had prescribed to stop her premature labor. Well she was cursed out by another lady who was extremely obese because she attempted to use one of those scooters. To me her situation should have been the exception considering that being on her feet caused a risk to her unborn child's life. She let the other lady have the scooter though without an argument. Had I been there I probably would have run the old hag over with the damn scooter!
Ohh

I have a friend who has knee problems, partly because of her weight. She refuses to ride one of those scooters even though her doctor recommends it to her. She doesn't want to be seen as one of those people who needs a scooter to get around. She also refuses to use a cane, even though her doctor wants her to use one of those, too. I've seen her fall down a couple of times because her knee gives out. I still can't get her to use a cane, though.

I'm not overweight, but if I had knee problems, back problems, or couldn't walk very well, I'd use one of those scooters or a cane, if I thought I needed it.

I don't really see the purpose in correcting someone's English on Topix. I wouldn't do it to a person if I was in a conversation with him or her, but I guess if you're trying to point out someone's ignorance or stupidity, maybe it's a valid point.

I only did that because the other poster accused someone of not being too sharp and misspelled two simple words like you're and too. It's just a pet peeve of mine, not the spelling necessarily but to accuse someone of something that you in fact are guilty of. It's like dumb and dumber.

I have great respect for teachers but they don't make as much money as they deserve so I couldn't afford the pay cut.
I had great teachers that taught me to spell, maybe you weren't as fortunate or didn't pay attention.

I think walking is good for you no matter what your weight is, If a person is only overweight and nothing else then they need to walk. IF however they have a medical condition THEN they should by all means use a scooter. The rule ought to be if you can use the handicap space then you can use the Scooters...if your medical condition doesn't qualify for a handicap space then you shouldn't be allowed to use the scooters if other people with disabilities needs them. NOW if nobody happens to need them at the time sure knock yourself out..have fun....

you get Thyroid problems from being overweight most of the time or it can cause you to lost weight a small amount of ppl gain weight from it but whatever they can treat Thyroid now so you need to research shit before you run at the mouth dumbass theres no reason for someone to be overweight. most of it is caused by a very poor diet. oh and btw wtf kind of god are you worshiping? either way im not?

Your the dumb ass , being overweight doesn't cause thyroid problems, you better go talk to a doctor & find out and yes there is medicine but it will not help very much on helping you lose weight... You have no ideal what you are talking about.

your kidding me right the point of the treatment is to get rid of the thyroid not your extra weight you get rid of the weight yourself now i can understand if you had a thyroid problem and you gained weight (but most overweight ppl use it as an excuse and dont have anything wrong with them) once its treated you should lost the weight but ppl are to lazy to do anything let alone get off the couch and go for a jog
oh and (You have no ideal what you are talking about.) its just idea man not ideal

I think you are the one in the need of doing research. You don't get thyroid from being over-weight. A lot of the time it runs in the family. Also there are two types of thyroid. Underactive and overactive. Underactive makes you gain weight. Overactive makes you lose weight and possibly some of your hair. I know this because I have about five relatives who have a thyroid problem. Two have overactive and the other three have underactive.
Also...it's not a small weight gain either. My sister went from a size 3 to a size 12 in 3 months from her thyroid, and is being in a size 3 make someone overweight? No, I didn't think so, so looks like you're wrong.

Hypothyroidism can occur spontaneously, develop during or after pregnancy or after treatment for hyperthyroidism. You can be born with it or it can be caused by Hashimoto's thyroiditis, the leading cause of hypothyroidism.

Named for the Japanese health care professional who first described it in detail, Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease. That means the immune system attacks the body's healthy tissues instead of fighting off invading bacteria or viruses. In this case, the immune system produces antibodies to attack the thyroid gland as if it were a foreign substance that needed to be destroyed. The resulting damage leads to reduced production of TH.

I copied this from Web MD, it discusses common causes of hypothyroidism which is the disorder that causes people to gain weight.
