154182615418262018-09-20There’s a responsibility that comes when you open yourself up to a world you don’t necessarily know through a screen. It’s a responsibility I take very seriously.
So because of that I wanted to share an article I read yesterday and how it made me feel and think about my body (and if I can figure out how to share it on here I will). But the author talked about obesity and the failure of our medical world to handle working with overweight patients. It was eye opening and also made me feel seen and heard in a way I hadn’t considered before. •
I’m lucky that I have a doctor that respects that I refuse to be weighed at each visit. I do this because the number on a scale can mess with my head and feelings of self worth and that’s not fair. I know what I look like and I don’t need three numbers to dictate how I feel about myself. She also never tries to blame my issues on weight. Recently though she made a point that I might be getting to a place where I may want to consider a chest reduction to help with my back issues. It was a fair point. (I think I could easily focus and instead just lose the weight there once I’m able to) But she also reluctantly had to admit to me that most surgeons won’t see patients that are over a certain BMI. Something I clearly wouldn’t meet because BMI is a ridiculous and arbitrary standard. (Look it up!)
Anyway, how crazy is that. Most likely overweight patients are the ones that need those surgeries the most (which is what my doctor said) and they are refusing to care for them. It’s sad and disappointing. Which is why I’m doing what I’m doing in sharing my story. So that I can be a part of the narrative change surrounding overweight bodies and so future men and women can hopefully get the medical care they need without being dismissed, ignored or shamed but the person who is supposed to be helping and caring for them.
Has anyone else faced struggles when it comes to getting proper healthcare based on your weight? I’d love to hear your stories. 💕
675465597867546559782018-09-20Happy birthday to me! I can’t believe I’m finally 18.
Look guys, I wanted to tell you something. When I was about 14/15, I ended up going to a “behavioral” hospital for my mental health. I was very suicidal and constantly was self harming. As I grew up, and my life progressed, I learned that I was only focusing on the bad in my life. I never looked at the good. In all honesty, I didn’t expect to be here today from a few years ago.
I’ve met some great people in my life. My best friend and my significant other. They both are what keeps me going to this day. All the teachers at my school would just brighten up my day.
I want to let everyone know that things get better. Some of you have told me I’m such an inspiring and happy person... not everyone knows my past. Only a few. But I wanted to share it with you guys because I’m just happy to be here. I love you all. -

231537204923153720492018-09-20Nie ma skrótów do żadnego miejsca, do którego warto się udać. Musisz robić trudne rzeczy. Rzeczy, których większość ludzi unika. Rzeczy, które cię przerażają i sprawiają, że czujesz się niekomfortowo. To są rzeczy, które czynią różnicę między poznaniem ścieżki i kroczeniem ścieżką - pomiędzy życiem przeciętnością a życiem wypełnionym spełnieniem. Więc dla własnego dobra, zacznij działać już DZIŚ! https://scontent-ams3-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/22ed8a83358ccea342efacd55a28fe9c/5C269BBC/t51.2885-15/e35/40814516_318771168702691_8949268405989673963_n.jpg2018-09-20
