My weight problem

Am slightly underweight. I struggle to gain weight and I forget to eat due to mental health. Am trying really hard to put on weight and fat but my high metabolism makes that hard and my forgetfulness with my mental health makes it even harder. I do enjoy trying, I enjoy the food, if only I can remember to eat.

I can't just eat alot in one go, I'll be sick otherwise. I gotta do it little and often.

I slowly gain, I feel happy. I then forget to eat, I loose weight and then feel sad. Low mood and low appetite, it a up hill struggle.

But I keep trying! Gaining weight and trying! Makes me happy. :)

The major problem is that there's simply a lack of information and a lack of study of underweightness. many doctors even don't have a lot of information and aren't a lot of help either. Unfortunately it is true that a lot of other normal-weight people simply do not understand your problem and many people can be really judgy. and people who are overweight getting angry or jealous of you for enjoying a milkshake. I personally think the other half of the problem is that underweight simply is not being talked about enough. I don't want to start some kind of left-wing activism about being underweight.

Sometimes the best thing to do is just shut up and eat up ;) yes

Hey, me too!

I'm slightly underweight too. People think I have eating disorders. It's really offensive...

I suck at sports too. And I don't have much of an appetite either. We have so much in common!

I always forget to eat breakfast sometimes. And then I feel weak later on.

Don't worry! We have more people who're like us!
