Humiliation At the Doctors

I went the doctors with one thing and you know how it is you end up with a list of things you didn't go in for like humiliation and finger pointing at you that you're fat .. no sorry obese and made to stand on the scales like a fisherman waiting in their huge haul.Getting fit shouldn't be like this it shouldn't be humiliation ,  shouldn't be made to feel like if I do want a cake ( a rare treat ) that I am going to need a defibrillator standing by.

It was a case of OOOOh no you shouldn't be on that medication because you're obese and let's have you on the scales.

I went from a hero to zero in one swift mouthful.

I know I have to lose weight and you know I have really overhauled my eating habits and people know how much walking I do and all I got from the doctor was "you seem to be doing the right things"

I have a referral from the dietician which has been shelved because even they thought it was odd being referred in such a way.

I really do think I was fat shamed in a way ... because all the other times I have been to the doctors my weight has roughly stayed the same .. my blood pressure and cholesterol are all good.

I have joined instead a scheme with the council aimed at people with a disability where it is one and one and there is no shaming in fact I was congratulated on making that step! now to me that is far more productive and inspiring that what I experienced at the doctors last week.And I have been assured that it is on no way like far club from Little Britain.
