Shit Abled People Say #353
Mum: Is the psych ward letting you exercise? I’m worried they’re not understanding how much your mental illness is tied to your weight! Imagine how happy you’d be if you lost a few stone!
Me: *has been suffering from mental health issues since I was a child, long before I was overweight, and mainly due to ongoing emotional abuse*
*is agoraphobic and finds going outside terrifying*
*has told her for years that my mental health has never been tied to my weight*
*has hypotonia which makes exercise difficult*
Me: … Sure.
