Hey there, beautiful people! My first week at my new job has been really awesome and I’m having a lot of FEELS about it, but while I process that on my own, how about some links?

    Re: the article about “obesity”: I know it’s a business, and I know how I and other large people are suffering at the hands of doctors about this “disease.” But, I had a doctor who prescribed me low-grade amphetamines for weight loss. It worked like a charm. For two years (2011-2013), not only was I rarely hungry, and could manage on 700 calories a day (or less), I was FULL of energy to work out 2 hours a day. The pounds dropped off. Then she retired, and the person who took over my medical care refused to prescribe them to me. I never took more than the daily prescribed dose, so it wasn’t like I was abusing the pills, but once the pills were no longer available, I was back to being ravenous every day, and back to having no energy to exercise. And back are all the pounds. I think I’m angrier that I can’t find a SINGLE doctor (I’ve gone to 4 different ones since my doctor retired) to prescribe me the pills that helped me be “healthy” than I am that my doctor wanted to medicate me for my weight.
