Hi um.. I'm not great at really wording things well, but there's just so many issues with my body and I don't really know where to start on anything. The two doctors I've had in my life haven't helped much since they only focus on my weight. I'm not a healthy person, I can admit that, but there's just so many health issues getting in the way of making things better mentally and physically that I'm overwhelmed with getting diagnosis' for anything. None of the things I've put on my profile are diagnosed but they feel so obvious to me that I had to. I don't know how to approach therapy or physical health help because I'm too scared it'll only focus on my weight when there's just so much stuff that's a factor to it. Sorry that this is so long

      I would honestly communicate that to your current doctor. I am a healthy weight so I didn't have that issue but I have had the same experience with doctors hyper focusing on pretty much non issues (compared to everything else) while ignoring my actual conditions A lot of doctors also don't really know where to start and are nervous to look into serious/complex conditions so they just treat what they're comfortable with, and sometimes they need a little push. When I see a new doctor I straight up tell them the issues I've had ignored in the past and that I want them treated.

        @Kuro I've tried with my current doctor but they don't really listen and just steamroll me when I try. I end up only saying a word or two at my visits with them

          @DjSkelly I can understand that too :( I'm so sorry this is happening to you. If you can I'd say switch doctors but I know that's not possible for everyone.
