This was true of every visit to the doctor’s office. No matter my symptoms, no matter the needs I stated, everything was attributed to being fat.
On “tough love” and your fat friend’s health.

This simple sentence hit me like a freight train. There it is in black and white, not only the reason I haven’t seen a doctor in years, but the entire downward slide of being told by a professional that any issue I may have is because of my weight. I may have learned to shut out the haters over the years, but a doctor? Nope, that still causes shame.
