William “Refrigerator” Perry American Football (NFL) Player Story: Refrigerator Perry, who lives in Aiken, South Carolina, weighs over 400 pounds and hardly moves, except to go to the bathroom or to the liquor store to buy beer.
Perry admits in history that the Bears tried to help with his drinking problem in 1988 but to no avail.
In 1988, while still a star with the Bears, Perry spent 28 days of treatment and began attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. But it has not stopped drinking, and recognizes that ignores the advice of his doctor to treat their ailments, ranging from Guillain-Barre syndrome to diabetes to high blood pressure to memory loss.
Perry developed an affinity for alcohol in college that has only worsened over the years.
He cut short the habit after a stint in rehab, but in 2008 he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome, “a disorder occurs when a person’s immune system attacks its peripheral nervous system” that put Perry in a chair Wheel and soon was back in the bottle.
Health Perry was in great danger, but after intense physical therapy began to return to form.
But the alcohol has taken control of Perry again, and even though you are drinking less, his health continued to decline.
“I’m supposed to be taking the medication? Yeah, yeah,” said Perry. “I guess sometimes, sometimes I do not. I mean, I’m not going to lie.”
When Perry was 23 was one of the most popular members of the big bears 1985. Is now 48, and his life is a sad story.
He was scoring a touchdown in the Super Bowl for the Chicago Bears when he was 25.
In June 2008, Perry came down with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a disease that attacks the body’s nervous system.
