I would like it if people did not criticize my weight, as it is a direct result of my illnesses. My inability to move well has not helped me stay thin. Pain medications have slowed my metabolism. So don’t criticize what I can not help, it hurts my feelings. I miss the thin me, the lively person I used to be. I’m just trying to make it day to day now and I don’t need to be told what is wrong with my appearance, when that is the last thing that should matter.
