Before you go off, she's not aware that I have an eating disorder nor that she was freaking me out by what she was saying. I was wondering if anyone had any information on this teaching phenominon and whether the doctors are using this information to convince women (and possibly men) that they are going to be "perpetually overweight" because that's just the way it is.
I will need to have this information at my side in case my doctor's appointment this Friday just turns into a scratching fight over my eating habits.
[edit 5/5]: I was diagnosed yesterday as hypothyroid. The doctor was very sweet and didn't try to accuse me of overeating or anything of the sort. She said I looked very frazzled and stressed out so they're going to try to get me back on track as soon as possible. I'm so relieved, whew! Unfortunately I still have an ultrasound to go to because of some knots they could see just by looking at my neck so now I gotta cross my fingers and hope they aren't cancerous. Thanks for the help guys!
