My 600-lb Life: Michael Blair Hurts Himself

On My 600-lb Life, Michael Blair is open about how he struggles with a unique form of self-harm. After the nearly fatal car accident he was involved in, he needed to get emergency surgery to save his life. During the surgery, his spleen was removed. As a result, his body’s grown a lot of thick scar tissue around his stomach. So, Michael’s previous gastric bypass approval was useless, as he’s unable to receive the surgery.

After this news, Michael Blair from My 600-lb Life talks about how he’s going through a really bad depression since the life-changing event. However, he and his wife discuss having a second child to help bring him out of that depression.

Yet, the birth of his second son didn’t help improve Michael’s mental health. On My 600-lb Life, Michael admits that he overeats a lot. But, Michael reveals that sometimes he’ll eat so much, it causes the scars on his stomach to hurt. Michael says he won’t stop eating, even after his stomach starts to hurt. However, he isn’t able to understand why he refuses to stop eating.
