Story 836

"I always knew you would slim out" - that's what a friend's mum said to me when I was 13 years old and in the depths of an eating disorder. A few years later, when I was recovering and starting to feel a bit better about myself (size 8-10), my doctor told me I had to be "careful" because I might soon become "obese". I went home to my mum and cried, and felt so embarrassed by his comments that I changed GP and never saw him again.
