If you watched the BODYSLAM! or came to it, you would know that I have been dealing with a person in my doctors office that feels it is her complete right to comment on my body. While calling me ‘fluffy’ makes for a hilarious story, it scares me what she might be saying to other people. So I am making a HAES packet for my actual doctor, and writing a formal complaint so that the ‘fluffy’ incident is not repeated.
Thanks again to our presenters, vendors and everyone who attended the BODYSLAM! last night. We had an amazing time and we hope that you all did as well!
