Your fat friend doesn’t feel fat.

Art by Jeanne Lorioz.

“I feel fat.”

I struggle to find my breath, and then my voice. Sometimes I don’t bother, because it feels so fruitless to tell you how it feels when you say that you feel fat. You ask me if I know what you mean, and I genuinely don’t. I have never felt fat.

I don’t feel fat. I am fat.
