Hi Cammiejo, and welcome to the forum.

How old are you?  Are you still living at home?

Sometimes other family members don't understand what we go thru on a daily basis and think they are helping us by saying certain things. 

Most of us here have weight problems, some Can't gain due to illness, others, like myself, gain because of Prednisone or other meds.  But, what you weigh is not the person you are in your heart, which is what is the important part.

You say you have medical problems and you're on meds.  If you are depressed, are you seeing a counselor or talking with your doctor?  That can help not only how you feel about yourself but, also help you deal with others who don't understand.

There is help for you and I hope you will seek it out.  Let us know how you are doing.  It will be ok.. !

Don't forget.. Drink your water.. :)

I can't believe your mom would do that. I am 156 pounds. You are definitely not fat. Talk to someone. You know, no offense,  but if your mom cared about you she would not say those things. I am really sorry. I know I could never deal with that. Don't give up, though. Hang in there, k? If you ever need someone to talk to you can email me at Ask anyone, I'm a very good listener. I deal with others' problems more than I do my own.

:-)  Cammiejo,
I'm sorry that you are going through such an ordeal at home and with family. I can relate. My family got tired of me "bellyaching" so now I don't say a word about my health or depression. Being a far distance from them helps too. They are all in one state and I am in another FAR away with my husband and dogs. That includes my daughters and 5 grandkids. No one even acknowledged the fact that I have an illness never less the support. It used to bother me a great deal but it doesn't bother me anymore. I have this support group and the Lupus support group. The members here are super and you will find comfort. In the beginning I started to believe that I was nuts but now I know I am not. It's them who want to turn a "blind eye" so, whatever. If I worried about them not calling me or even showing they care, I would be in a rubber room. No, I have the support I need. You can too.
"Lefty" yeah
There is no such word as can't. Can't simply means wouln't. Grab as much as life as you can. Future is a long way away for those who don't believe. Don't build a foundation of life on sand. It will take it away with the tide. Love a little more, be unkind a lot less.
