London: A British mother of two has a strange muscle disorder that restrains her from putting on weight even if she gorges on all the junks.
For most of the figure-obsessed ladies it might be a dream come true, but for Carole French, it is a living nightmare, as she is always taunted as anorexic.
The slight 50-year-old from Oldham, Manchester, who is suffering from muscular fibrositis disproportion, is so thin that she is forced to wear children’s clothes.
“So many people tell me I’m lucky to be so thin, but I just wish I could put on weight,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
“Since I was a teenager, people have always assumed that I was anorexic - but nothing could be further from the truth.
“I eat like a horse - I never skip meals and I treat myself to a Chinese take-away once a week.
“People can be really cruel - I know I look different, but I don’t choose to look the way I do.
“People stop and stare at me and take pictures of me like I’m in some kind of freak show. It’s really upsetting,” she added.
