6th Grade

  • My first year was not how I planned it out. I was lost and scared and I had  no friends, besides the one from fifth grade and most of them didn’t like me or found new friend and started to abandon me. At this point you could see my ribs, I was so skinny. Whenever anyone said skinny when I was in the room almost every person would look at me. When I went home most nights I would be way too embarrassed to eat. One day my dad confronted me and told me that I was going to eat so I ate and felt sick that night.(nothing happened). Whenever at school someone would say something that I heard one of the other kids say. EX: “ya mama”. That got me “popular” you don’t understand how much I hate that word. At the end of the year I found 3 girls that were close enough to me that I appreciated them as well. I was of course the shortest and the skinniest.
  • But I got through the year. It wasn’t easy at all there were time where I didn’t know why whoever did anything to even think about putting me on this Earth and yet sometimes I feel like that again. I feel selfish for thinking that I’m the only one being put out of certain things because of my height and my weight. I feel stupid for thinking that anyone was going to be just a wink like me.

Honestly middle school sucks, always…. I’m sure the people (using that term very loosely in this case obviously xD) there would still treat you horribly even if you were in a normal range for weight and height, they’d find something -_-
But I can kind of relate a little, since I do share the trait of always having been the smol skinny person, I didn’t even realize that it wasn’t normal to see your ribs until like 9th grade or so. I did eventually get a bit heavier at least (went from 110-140 in my senior year of high school due to starting daily exercise and strength training, yet was still one of the lightest people in my school.) But you’d also have problems if you were overweight too, weight in general sucks and being far from what’s average is just not great.

Either way please try to eat more, it will help you to become a bit less thin…. I know it’s sometimes hard to feel up to eating, but it’s still important. I imagine your father does want to help, but does not understand how you feel. I’m very sorry that I don’t have much input at all, nor advice. All I can say is that approaching food in smaller portions does help me eat when I don’t feel up to it, like having a smaller chunk of food on a plate is at least easier to approach for me, then often after I start eating a bit I do start to feel hunger. Also middle school is horrible, and being different in anyway in middle school is going to mean you will be bullied…. Hopefully high school treats you better.
