Probably the most humiliating thing that has ever happened to me in my life is when my oncologist told me that I have too much fat in my abdomen to do a hysterectomy. I’m too fat to have the cancer removed from my body. Trust me when I tell ... Read more

The doctor was unimpressed with my weight loss. I’m trying not to be upset about it. It’s stupid because it is precisely what I predicted. I have to stop being so sensitive. ... Read more
