Mr Mason, from Ipswich, claimed a woman he was sharing a home with at the time was hooked on opioids and would send him out to shoplift.He said he is determined to get his health back : ‘The NHS have saved my life time and again. I could be dead without them.‘I’m determined to get my health back so I don’t let them down – I just need them to help me one last time.’

Not everyone would do this.

Not a chance, money better spent else where

That 70stone pic is just a small mans bead photoshopped on a bigger man’s body right? Right!?!

How is he eating 20,000 calories a day on £71 a week?

The amount of ££££ spent n this individual so far is eye watering! Perhaps he needs psychiatric treatment to sort him out? Spending a further £100k will not fully sort the problem out..just saying..

So 14 stone in credit. Every cloud.

NHS throwing money down drain.

Bad habits? Clearly has a life threatening eating disorder!

Completely self-inflicted, twice.
