Fat Girl's Guide to Finding a Doctor
In which Rebecca and Colva discuss the challenges and trials of selecting a doctor who will help you feel better, rather than intentionally or unintentionally make you feel worse. We discuss the ways fat people, and fat women experience bias and discrimination in a medical context, what effect that bias has, and what each of us can do to improve our experiences. Building off our own experiences, we talk about how medical care, doctors, specialists, surgeries, have impacted us and shaped our relationships with our health and bodies. We discuss ways to articulate our needs and preferences to our medical providers, learning how to advocate for ourselves, and understanding why we should. We also tackle tough questions about how we think about and navigate scales at the doctor's office, unpack how we've been taught by society to think about doctors and the ways that might be bad for us, and explore what fat hate is and how it's actually a part of our lives, every day and in very real ways. Bonus: We explain why we're so busy and bad at setting up recording times, complain about the warm weather the mid-Atlantic had in early October 2017, we realize that Rebecca failed to keep proper track of her health as an infant, and reminisce about the old days when accidentally getting the internet on your phone caused panic (it was expensive!) Content Notices: Fatphobia and (light) violence, weight loss and doctors
