I know this is a difficult question anyway I'm going to ask you what to do in my situation.....I've got family members & friends who seem to think being healthy means being underweight - nothing extraordinary I'd say, considering the messages we're all exposed to - plus they virtually seem to thrive on medical tests , daily visits at the hospital, and so on.
These people think you're never too healthy, never too thin and never too anyhthing, they starve themselves and take as many medicins as they can.
A few days ago,and it was terribly traumatic for me, I was 'interrogated' on the status of my cholesterol and I told them it's in the range....luckily , but they suggested I should have it tested once a month.
Once a month??????????
This is literally crazy for me, as I work and taking a day off for blood test to me is insane, unless there's a reason.
Anyway my latest test date back to November 2009, so I'm gonna take another one next month, but, let me express being upset at the way these people are trying to control my life....they just don't consider I exercise as much as I can, walk, try to eat clean and my weight is normal....
How do you think I can defend myself from these ignorant people who unfortunately have no idea of what healthy means....unfortunately they're part of my family and, yes, I can distance myself but not avoiding seeing them altogether, anyway I'm afraid they'll drive me crazy one day or another and/or infect me with their obsessions
PS I'm not going to transform myself into a 'walking skeleton' for anybody's sake, that's for sure....anyway I prefer talking about my health issues with my doctor
