I've always been very short and very thin.
I have a fast metabolism and have a hard time gaining or keeping weight on. I've always felt very awkward because of my elbows, hips, and knees being knobby and sticking out.
I've been approached in public and asked if I am anorexic, if I'm sick. People will ask me "how'd you get so skinny" as if it was a polite topic...I've never had an eating disorder, but I feel pressure to clean my plate every time I eat, to not pee after eating in fear someone will think I am going off to throw up or something.
I eat normally, I have a good healthy diet with lots of variety, plenty of carbs and fat. But I still feel like people judge me, they think I'm on drugs or have some eating disorder and that's really hurtful.
I'd love to gain ten pounds or so, I've tried a lot of different ways to gain some weight but nothing seems to help much. I usually weigh 95ish pounds, and can get up to 110 if I really struggle and drink calorie drinks with each meal.
I have a really short waist and my shoulders are bigger than my hips, too, which means I am shaped a little strangely. I feel very self-conscious about it sometimes.
I wish people wouldn't shame each other because they're shaped differently- big or small.
