Overweight or Obese cases

Contributed by Andree Leclerc, Canada

Chart 1: Overweight #10600 American case of obesity, tried therapy and own analysis, but two problems remain unsolved. One is her large weight problem, which she sees connected to her inability to be attracted to men for good sexual relationship. She is either drawn to gay men, or those who do not sexually respond. The relationships she does have are intellectually and emotionally intense, but sex does not develop, or is poor. Her present friend is gay and claims that he does love her, but she is unclear as to what that means for him.

Chart 2: Overweight #11571 American case of obesity, 5 ft 8 in tall and weighs 180 lbs. Normal weight for her height is 160 pounds, but she has weighed as much as 200 pounds.

Chart 3: Overweight 11792 American case of obesity, a beautiful but heavy woman. She became pregnant at the age of 16 through a loveless marriage; they were divorced in 1982. Soon after her divorce she went on a diet. Sexual concerns for her include the fact that she cannot experience an orgasm through sexual intercourse, only through fantasy during masturbation.

Chart 4: Overweight #13541 American case of morbid obesity. She is self-centered, insensitive to others, sloppy, talkative and has a nasal voice. Her personality is generally described as obnoxious.

Chart 5: Overweight #13716 American case of obesity. The weight problem is most dangerous to her health, but has also created a lonely romantic life.

Chart 6: Overweight #19724 American government employee, head of the Payroll Office of a Los Angeles school. Married and divorced; one son. Morbidly obese; marvelous fun sense of humor.

Chart 7: Overweight (heart #5491) American death due to heart attack in the fall of 1984. She was obese with gallbladder problems and agoraphobia.

Chart 8: Brian Wilson American musician, the troubled and eccentric genius of "The Beach Boys," a composer and producer who gave up touring with the group in 1965, at 22. He devoted himself to writing and producing the group's albums, creating some of the most ethereal and sophisticated pop of the classic-rock era, along with some of pop-rock's most purely joyful and often goofy rollicking fun music. Wilson is 6' 3" tall, weighing 400 lb. at one time until losing 100 lb. in early 1983. He suffers from deafness in his right ear and, since childhood, has spoken and sung out of the side of his mouth. For nearly 25 years he battled debilitating mental illness, an emotional instability exacerbated by a history of drug and alcohol abuse. He refused to get out of bed for long stretches in the late '60s and '70s. During the '80s and early '90s he put his emotional and professional life into the care, full-time by 1984, of his not so scrupulous psychiatrist, Eugene Landy (b.11/26/1934). A 24 hour-a-day psychiatrist-guru, Landy served as Brian's manager and chief money grubber and was apparently in absolute control of Wilson's life by 1990. Wilson has been known to suffer bouts of stage fright so severe that he feels like bolting from the stage. Hoping to overcome this, he began his first-ever solo-concert tour in March 1999 with a 13 piece band, easing into scaled-back gigs that are geared to not produce heavy performance-anxiety. He avoids interviews, clutching a pillow for protection when he must respond to the press. He is plainly more comfortable at the piano than in a social situation. He was married twice, first to Marilyn on 12/07/1964, Los Angeles, CA. They were separated on 7/15/1978 and divorced the following year. Their two daughters, Wendy and Carnie, were once part of the group Wilson Phillips. He married 49-year old Melinda Ledbetter 16 years later on 2/06/1995, 6:00 PM, Palos Verdes, CA., adopting her two

daughters. He maintains his well-being with the use of medications for depression, anxiety and sleeplessness.
