The opposite end of the spectrum

Wow. I just read this article on yahoo about a woman who has zero fat on her body due to a rare disorder. She has to eat every 15 to 20 minutes to stay alive. What she has faced and what she has overcome is amazing.

Remember that old saying about you can never be too thin? Um. Yes you can. I'm going to read her book. What an amazing woman. Anyone who feels bad about themselves in the midst of this struggle we are having as we fight fat should read it.

I hope it is ok to post a link to yahoo? If not, please let me know and I will delete the link.

What kind of person thinks it is okay to do this to another human?

I am going to buy her book as well. Touching and motivational.

Yam Yam- thank you for posting that. I would love to read her book as well. I too am amazed and saddened at the lengths people will go to to humiliate and bully a fellow human.

Having had a few days to think about Miss Velasquez, I find I feel a deep kinship with anyone who's looks place them outside of the norm...and who will have to live her whole life that way. Okay, admiration levels doubled.

I was impressed at all of the supportive comments on the website (because often people on the internet can be really nasty)...but the cynical side of me couldn't help wondering if it were the opposite sort of disorder, and say she were 1000 pounds because of some metabolic disorder, would she be receiving the same kind of support or would she be receiving nasty comments blaming her for her problem (like usually get posted on news stories about morbidly obese people)?

(Of course I am not at all suggesting she is fortunate to have that, it must be terrible having to eat every 15-20 minutes to survive)
