.Fat shaming ahead.
I got called into the GP today because there was a form to be filled out and put into my medical records. The doctor (my previous GP who has form for fat shaming) was rude the whole time and barely spoke to me. Once the form was done he decided we did need to chat. About my weight.
I was not there about a health issue and this doctor no longer has any idea what is happening with me health-wise or lifestyle-wise but he has decided I need to “start taking care of my body” and that the best thing I can do for my health is lose weight. Without asking me any questions about what actually I eat or what exercise I do he has decided I need to stop constantly eating “all the chocolates and biscuits” and follow his lead of eating less and skipping meals. He just went on and on with assumptions. I was so frustrated with the first half of the appointment that I couldn’t say anything, I waited for him to finish and then I walked out. Once I got outside I cried from frustration.
I’m mostly upset that I didn’t say anything. I didn’t want to argue back with proof of my health or acknowledge his assumptions, I wanted to tell him he is a terrible doctor and walk out.
