No, but I get pressured to gain weight all the time. I don't get how people feel they have a right to dictate what others should do with their bodies. I see many things I don't like about people's appearances on the regular yet I still manage to act like an adult and keep my mouth shut.
This. Although what you will find is that comments about weight, in fact, any comments about you are driven by their own
insecurities and issues. Weight is especially telling though. I literally can't talk about things like losing weight around some people (who are overweight) because they visibly
react to it. It's something they want to do but cant, so feel you are rubbing their faces in it.
In reality, its ridiculously hard for me, but its just less hard than the other regular life stuff other people can manage without issue, so I cling to it.
When people are making comments about your weight, they are, in reality, shouting from the rooftops about some of their own insecurities and mental problems. My advice would be to try to distance yourself from the comments, realise this, and quietly smile to yourself in the knowledge they just did the equivalent of telling you they struggle with issues around weight.
I had a GP tell me I could lose some weight one time. I almost burst out laughing. I've been skinny all my life and had put on some weight because of the Lexapro I was taking at the time.
I kept trying to picture what my Mum would have said if she'd have seen me with a tummy - she would have been in hysterics.
Back when I was at my plumpest due to SSRI (and **** me, that has created so many problems for me now, once you get fat your body just wants you back there asap, it becomes hellish keeping it off). I remember a GP just being brutally cruel about my weight. They didn't even accept SSRI's caused that.
Honestly, doctors are really starting to piss me off atm. I am dreading my next psych appointment in a month. The promise of them actually helping will no doubt be cruelly unfulfilled. I need to go in there with a hardcore gameplan. Will get my psychologist to write something, maybe, too.
