anyone else HATE going to the doctor? I feel like they always find a way to link my issues back to my weight somehow, like they're dismissing how I'm feeling. I know I need to lose weight and I'm actively working on it, but getting my conditions under control now should also be a priority!

    Yeah it’s pretty much the worst. My favorite is when they say all my problems will go away if I lose weight then I ask them how with my movement restrictions and the medications I’m on and they just shrug and say “figure it out.” Then I ask for a referral to someone who would know and they shrug again. It’s super helpful.

    I dread going. Especially when you know they will be judgemental and make comments regarding it. We know we should lose weight, it doesn't help make us feel worse about it.

    Exactly! I'm new at type 2! I've cut all the sugar. Haven't lost not one pound! Yes, I have severe mobility issues. Whole new world. Can't go anywhere hardly.

    Doctor's truly have a way of making you feel bad. It's rare, at least for me, to find doctors who do not attribute everything to being overweight. If a doctor makes you uncomfortable, you can always ask for a new one. This is your health and your life and you don't need someone who is supposed to make you feel better make you feel worse.
