Grief can be a burden but also an anchor. You get used to the weight, how it holds you in place. Sarah Dessen
On Wednesday’s episode we meet 20-year-old Matshepo Moleki from Kagiso. Who’s struggled with inexplicable weight gain since 2013. Her father passed away in the same year and Mokapelo helps her make the connection between grief and her ever increasing mass.
