1000-Lb. Sisters star Tammy Slaton Confesses To Being Depressed

1000-Lb. Sisters star Tammy Slaton continues to make headlines as the season 3 finale approaches. In a preview of the next episode, Tammy’s bariatric surgeon, Dr. Smith, decides to visit her at home. After several appointments in which she failed to meet the goals he had set for her, he makes another attempt to help her understand the severity of her weight.

During their visit, Tammy Slaton admits that she has been spending her time drinking and smoking, and not focusing on her diet. When Dr. Smith asks her how much she drinks, she smiles and responds with “eight bottles a week.”

The answer leaves Dr. Smith shocked, and he immediately shares his concerns about her choices. He tells Tammy Slaton that just drinking is “putting her in severe danger” and tries to make her understand the many ways she is harming her body.

As their conversation continues during Dr Smith’s home visit, Tammy Slaton admits to struggling with her mental health and severe depression. She tells her that her depression is worse when she is alone. She goes on to say: “That’s why I kinda felt like I needed to just take a break and not think about diets, relationships. Just clear my mind.”

Tammy Slaton believes that drinking and partying with friends is the distraction she needs to not think about her weight or the fact that she hasn’t reached her goals yet.

Although Dr Smith understands her feelings and supports her need to take care of her mental health, he is not convinced that she really wants help. He says Tammy is not doing the right thing to prove that she is concerned about her mental wellbeing. Dr. Smith says he is concerned that Tammy is using her depression as an excuse not to focus on her nutrition and exercise goals.

In another preview clip, Tammy Slaton is in trouble as she rides in a van with her brother Chris. As they drive, she tells him that she’s not feeling well and is having problems with her oxygen intake. He stops the van and discovers that Tammy has stopped breathing.

It is recently revealed that Tammy has been in hospital for a few months and has had a tracheostomy to help her breathe. It is possible that the events of the journey in the van led to this moment.

Tammy has also entered a rehabilitation centre to help with her food addiction. Fans may recall when she was first in rehab when it played out at the beginning of season 3. She lost 60 pounds out of the 100 that Dr. Smith required of her before she decided to return home early. From there he gained all the weight back and more.
