Sick or not, human is human. You're human. QED.

I hate when people say "But if fat people shouldn't be accomodated for, what about handicapped people/sick people/old people."

Really? You don't control whether you're born with extra chromosomes, if you stepped on an IED or if you get cancer, and no amount of diet and exercise stops you from getting old. There's a difference between

I run exercise classes for older people. I had a 90 year old in one of my classes who was one of the most energetic people in the class until she died suddenly of an undiagnosed brain tumor. Exercise has a very beneficial impact on ageing.

I feel you on the scootypuff. I got a bone infection in my ankle and I needed to use one for a summer. It's embarrassing as heck. There's nowhere to put your crutches, so you have to awkwardly leave/retrieve them with someone. They are big and awkward, so if I needed to grab something off the top shelf it was a clumsy dance to not knock my bad foot and not fall over. I really hope I never have to use one again.

I was technically on bed rest for a time, but I needed to go grocery shopping so I used one. It felt like everyone was staring at me... I hated it!!

I often wonder if sick and disabled people hate fats for taking their bodies for granted.

They do.

They see lardbeasts that had the options to not get themselves deeper into the pit in which they've sunk into.

Some of the disabled and sick were once healthy and strong. They know some of the potential of the human body. And they see the lardbeasts have given up theirs willingly for a scootypuff and a box of donuts a day.

The lardbeasts can undo their situation. The sick and genuinely disabled, they can't.

Stop wondering. Sick and disabled people hate fats.

Elderly people I know clearly thought of mobility as part of their dignity. They would avoid using any kind of assistance unless they couldn't avoid it anymore. Now we have young people who can't even be bothered to walk. I don't know how anyone could choose to give that up.

I ran into an old friend at the pub tonight and we got to talking about sensible food choices and how they've had such a large impact on his family this past year. He told me about how his wife was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer last fall and how she'd endured chemo and radiation through exercise and a clean diet.

No junk food. Whole grains. A proper variety of vegetables and fruits and proteins. She has lost a bit of weight due to treatment, but she also continued to cycle to and from the hospital through the course of her treatment.

Her last round of chemo is next week. I hope that she continues to be a survivor.

Fats have given up on themselves. We all know that they don't push themselves to get better unless someone does it for them.

OP, I hope you stay healthy. Get strong again! Cancer is the worst thing ever and it's so shitty that everyone seems to get it now.

Just watched my little brother die of leukemia. He passed about 10 weeks ago after nearly two years of torture. I cannot express how much I empathize. My hatred for ALL people who abuse their bodies is so deep rooted now it physically makes me ill when I see them.

May your remission be permanent. Best wishes.
