I really want help for my anxiety and depression, but it feels impossible because people constantly bring up my weight, make comments about how much I eat, and imply I have an eating disorder.
It’s making me feel very hopeless, I just want one therapist who doesn’t bring up my weight over and over again.
Today I told a doctor that I feel really dizzy, and I think it might be a side effect of the antidepressants I’m taking. A nurse commented that I’m dizzy because I need to eat more (no, she didn’t see the list, she has no idea how much I eat).
Last week I was asked to write down how much I eat every day because I lost 2 pounds. I’ve been writing it down, but I do not understand why they even asked, because it’s unlikely they will believe me anyway.
I don’t care about my weight as much as any of these people and I am tired of answering questions about it. My body type should be irrelevant. Right now it’s an obstacle to getting actual help.
