tell him your weight has nothing to do with your health and if he was a doctor worth anything he’d know that
SNAP :’D i feel like i might be able to argue this point (and the recent medical studies that go along with it) with a young doctor, but older doctors here are like bastions of weight bias
jokes about communism aren’t funny unless you share them with everyone
cypresses replied to your post “i have a doctor’s appointment today and i’m dreading the inevitable…”
ask him if he has a problem
why? he’s just gonna say ‘yes’ and start explaining all the ways my body is bad for me and him (fat bodies are tougher to examine bc of the extra tissue)
does anyone else feel kinda chubby sometimes when ur on the computer
so u just take ur shirt and
i have a doctor’s appointment today and i’m dreading the inevitable weight related remarks
this particular doctor doesn’t even bother acting like he’s making remarks out of health concerns, he just asks for my weight and makes a face
some of the people on my dash i just assume are their icons bc i’ve never seen their pics so it’s like “oh look gandalf is up late bloggin again”
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
