Anonymous said: I'm having a lot of health problems and some of them are getting pretty scary but I know when I go to the doctors they will just say "be less fat." I already know that.

yeah that really blows. fat bias in medicine is the worst. I say you should try to find a doctor who will listen to you and try to make a diagnosis not based on your weight. bring some literature with you and make it clear you want to explore other possibilities before assuming it must be a weight issue. don’t let them be lazy and make them do their job. and if they refuse, fire them and find someone else. it sucks absolutely but it’s worth it to find a doctor who will treat you like a goddamn human being.
