I spent most of the day sleeping. I had a doctor’s appointment early. I dropped off my taxes at the accountant and went home to nap.
My cat curled up with me. I pulled the covers over us she covered my hand with her paw. she doesnt like to snuggle. We laid like that the whole time. she held my hand♥
I woke up two hours later to go to my parents for dinner. That was mistake.
It began with a photo.
I was admiring how beautiful my friend’s daughter was in her prom photo. Remarking how much her daughter’s appearance had changed since she began high school. “She lost so much weight” I sighed.
“You should” my mother interrupted.
I glowered at my mother. “She lost her weight because of an eating disorder!”
“Well maybe you should have an eating disorder! Then you can lose all the weight you gained! You are so fat now!”
This comment made my niece livid! She had been on her TikTok and she stopped watching her memes, something that rarely happens. “Did you not hear what Becky said? She said, that the girl had an eating disorder! you can be hospitalized from it. You can die!”
My mother rolled her eyes. “Yes well at least she would be skinny.”
My dad then stormed in and asked why he could hear us from outside. My niece told him that my mom said that I should have an eating disorder.
“So?” my dad shrugged. “She is getting fat.”
“people from eating disorders can die!” my niece cried. By this time my mom was really angry.
“It’s so retarded! She was going to lose weight!” she snapped and she glared at me. “She had cancer, she lost weight and now she gained all the weight back!”
Thankfully it was time to go. However, I had been sitting on the defective reclining seat. Once it reclines it doesnt work. I was struggling to get the chair to a sitting position. My parents glared at me. “Yeah its time for you to lose weight. You cant even get out of the chair!” my dad sneered.
My eyebrow rose. “Really?” I let go of the lever and jumped up. Kicked the chair close. “Fuck that. Fuck you.” walked out.
Its true I have gained some weight, but I am not the same person I was years ago. I feel better, healthier. True, my eating habits need to be better. I cant blame it on my pickiness now. There are things I can do now that I could never do before because of constant pain and because of the tumour. Things I took for granted.
I am enjoying every painfree moment now! If I am happy feeling great then people should be minding their business.
All this over an Ice Capp!
