My daughter, who worked at Walmart years ago, has a serious eating disorder and is on disability. At that time, she was bravely trying to work, becoming more weak and thin. Long story short, she tried to take a basket of groceries out the door. A year or two later, she went in another nearby Walmart where she then lived and tried to take food again. Both times, my daughter was starved and was waiting for insurance companies and travel to go to eating disorder facilities (there are none in my state and there were very few counselors who can help). Long story short, she has gone to counseling for years. She and her therapist wrote letters to Walmart and Hastings, where she had stolen. Hastings understood my daughter has a problem and decided to give her another chance. Walmart, on the other hand, has coldly told her no, they will not lift the no trespass order. Since then, my daughter has slipped into depression and her condition is very serious.
I wrote Walmart and tried to tell them about eating disorders and that my daughter is a very good person with a very bad illness. I am very disappointed that Walmart would react that way. Can't they see that she wasn't even in her right mind when she did those things? What part of sick do they not understand? She has done her part and worked hard, even when there are no ED facilities here. Her therapist believed she was ready to deal with shopping again. Even criminals do their time and then are out of jail to live freely again. Walmart has labeled my daughter a bad person and has done irreparable harm to her recovery. If she dies, I hope their management can live with it.
