Stuck to the Toilet

I've been known to do my best thinking and reading on a humble throne but this seems a little extreme:

According to news reports, Pam Babcock developed a phobia about leaving one of the bathrooms of the house she shared with boyfriend, Kory McFarren, so she took up residence in it, her boyfriend of 16 years bringing her meals, clothes, water, etc.

After two years, McFarren finally became concerned about his girlfriend’s behavior (she was conscious but starting to “act groggy”), so he called in authorities. Much to their shock, they discovered that the woman had actually become physically attached to the toilet seat.
A dermatologist suggested that she became adhered as a result of splinters, around which her skin quickly grew.
