This young lady has PCOS. A condition that a lot of us suffer from.
Some of the comments are ugly and ignorant as to be expected. What angers me is that people are saying that she looks unhealthy because of her weight. Overweight does not automatically=unhealthy and thin does not automatically=healthy. Of course, the ignorant will never see it that way.


UPDATE: I commented standing up for this woman. Someone responded and told me I was "retarded" because PCOS is not an endocrine disorder. Obviously, she is incompetent. The doctors who deal with endocrine disorders are ENDOCRINOLOGISTS. PCOS causes your hormones to be unbalanced and it is in fact, an endocrine disorder!

I can't let it get to me. I know what I go through and I know what others with similar issues go through and we all just have to stay strong and know we are worth way more than taunts of ignorant bullies.

    What a brave wonderful woman. I hope her message spreads. People have such narrow vision when it comes to what constitutes the body beautiful. Thank you for this link.

    That is so true, weight does not always indicate whether or not you are healthy!
