Fat People Are EVERYWHERE! My Doctor Wants Me To Get Weight Loss Surgery

It is true. We are. I wrote about body stuff here, and then soon after that she rebutted her fat shamer, and now I read this.

It is hard out there for a Fatty. It is hard out there for this Fat person.

Which is why I wrote my post about needing my friends to support me the other day.  My doctor's appointment included him explaining to me that I was healthy: My heart, lungs, blood pressure, blood sugar, thyroid, and everything else was in tip top shape. But they might not be forever. He said he thought I should consider weight loss surgery. He said, I am healthy now, but ten more years with this fat on me and I might not be so healthy. I think that is called preventative weight loss surgery?

Get my stomach stapled, just in case my fat makes me unhealthy.

 

 

someecards.com - I think my ass is beginning to affect the tides."But doc, I would have depression even if I were skinny..."

Well maybe Jasmine, it could go away if you lose weight.

"But doc, I would have ADD even if I were skinny..."

Well maybe Jasmine, it could go away if you lose weight.

"But doc, my blood sugar levels are awesome and have been for the last three years."

They are now, but we need to keep you on this medication to make sure you don't develop type 2 Diabetes (again) and to make sure if you do get it, it doesn't get worse.

"But what about when I weighed 200, and 199 and still had these problems, Doc?"

Well, you were obese then so those aren't good examples.

Navigating body, body image, health, and all the definitions therein, is so overwhelming to me, as Fat person. Because- no matter how I slice it, no matter how much I exercise, what food choices I change or improve, no matter what blood panels or diagnostics say- most doctors, and people, look at me and say: She is unhealthy, she is Fat.

But those things don't equal each other. Me being "skinny" doesn't mean I will magically be healthier.

And it makes me angry.

I am mad about being Fat and being judged.
