The second blow up angel in my life was my dentist , my teeth come out a bit when I smile , and its similar I always got mocked for it , I remember he said " if I would have to get braces that might not work , get rid of my four teeth and wear night braces for rest of my life I would rather stick to my teeth as they are" I donno if there are new solutions now a days but his words made me never wanting to have braces.
When I was 16 or so I had bad acne , terrible menstrual cramps , breast lumps (fibroadenoma) . Every time I had my periods I vomited everything out , I would become severely hypoglycemic and diarrhea , my dysmenorrhea was so bad at a point I couldn't take it because there were times I had to be admitted in hospital with 70/60Bp . So after a brief study I would cut down my salt , caffeine and dairy intake and still people wont believe how my acne got cleared , how the lumps are gone , I don't have cramps of that extreme and I don't have vomitings nor diarrhea . Its so amazing how a simple modification of diet would help me to wide extent , but that was not the hard part many people/relatives I knew started giving me lectures as they were so butthurt that I have completely cut off Dairy and pickles which according to them are major staples of food , It was funny how they would prefer those over me being healthy . But the end of the day I listened to my mind.
People ask me you are a doctor how can you look like this, see I'm a skinny doctor whose blood reports , overall health reports are normal , if I have a obese patient whose diabetic Ofcorse I'll tell him/her loss weight , if I have a thin patient whose anaemic I'll tell him/her to eat well , If I have a healthy patient why would I comment on their body structure .
Even though now a days we have people that support body positivity but it'll take another 100more years for entire world to change, Instead we can change ourselves , we should make ourselves strong that's the only thing we can do. Thin, dark, fat, or whatever these are not our flaws they are just our body types if we are strong enough to accept that , we can accept anything !!!
