I’ve seen doctors mock their fat patients’ bodies behind their backs."

It happened to me yrs ago - by a bariatric surgeon just in case anyone thinks they care/are compassionate about you/ur health. I only knew bc my mom was there and overheard. Needless to say I didn’t go thru w/ it. How could I trust him?"

We can’t, so we have to be strong advocates for ourselves. Don’t accept ONLY the answer that your weight is the problem and the ONLY Solution is losing it. Research medications and side effects and determine if they are right for you and if not, speak up."

I’ve seen more than one person’s mental health concerns being dismissed by their doctor because of their weight."
